No water coming out of my filter faucet.

I have a whirlpool wher12 reverse osmosis water system. I just moved into the house and the water slowly came out slower and slower. Now it does nothing. There was no air pressure in the pressure tank so I filled it back up to 80psi, says max of 100. water came out for about 20 seconds then nothing. what do I do?

    OK, Lets see. It doesn't look like the diagrams I saw. It has a green line from the main water line into the back of a 3 cyclinder unit, a sediment-chlorine filter, the reverse osmosis cartridge and a taste and odor post filter cartridge. It has a red thin line and a thicker blue line that both run to the faucet from the back of the cartridge unit. Theres a black line from the faucet to the drain. There's a yellow line to the pressure tank from the back of the cartridge unit as well... All I did was hook up my bicycle pump, it has a pressure gauge on it, and pump it up to 80psi. That's all I did with. It didn't work so I let the air back out and it has just been sitting there for the week. Did I mess it up?

    Could you look at the diagrams for stage 3,4,5 & permeate pump systems and tell me which one you have?

Okay.

Here is what I would suspect at this point:
------------------------------------------------------------

- Incorrect air pressure in tank, or

- Clogged filters

To check air pressure:
---------------------------------

Empty tank and check pressure -- it should be 7 PSI.

Note: There is a rubber bladder in the tank in which the water is stored -- if this bladder is ruptured, the air pressure in the tank will not hold.

So, adjust air pressure, try system again. If it works for a while and then stops, empty tank and check air pressure for 7 PSI.

Clogged filters?
----------------------

If the system doesn't work when tank pressure is adjusted, empty tank and check pressure again. If pressure is still 7 PSI, then replace filters.

If tank pressure is not 7 PSI at this juncture, it's probably a ruptured bladder and the tank will have to be replaced. But before you take that tack we should "talk" again.


Please let me know the results...

thanks

Charlie

--------------------

P.S. I'm assuming you have adequate water pressure on your household system. You're not noticing a drop in pressure anywhere else in the house -- is that correct?

Kinetico reverse osmosis water flowing very slow


I am guessing you have checked to make sure the water flow into the osmosis system to make sure it is at proper pressure? If so is this a whole house system or just for the kitchen? If it is a whole house do you have the same problems in other parts of the house?

That is the drain for the reverse osmosis system. You have what is referred to as an AIR GAP faucet. The waste water is pushed up there before it goes to drain just as the drain for a dishwasher does. If water is coming out of the faucet the drain is most likely plugged or the line is kinked causing water to back up and overflow. Check the drain line for kinks and clean out the drain where it attaches to the stand pipe.

then the filters housing can be removed
reverse this proceedure to install but gently compress the u shaped retainer back in slowly

How to replace filter on an undersink culligan reverse osmosis filter


Turn off the incoming water supply, turn off the valve on storage tank, open the RO faucet and let pressure off. Have a pan ready, remove the sediment pre-filter housing and post-carbon housing.
Use latex gloves when changing filters, add 1 tsp bleach to each housing and clean them thoroughly before installing filters. Make sure all bleach is rinsed out before installing filters. Turn the water back on to system, turn the tank back on and run 2 tanks of water out before using water again.

Is it possible to contaminate the membrane and filters by placing drain under pressure in order to clear and forcing water out the overflow on the side of the faucet of the whre 25 Reverse osmosis system


OK, now I understand. First, on the Reverse Osmosis Membrane Housing Outlet Ports there is only a Check Valve attached to the Permeate (Pure Water) Port, not the Concentrate Port (Drain Water). The Permeate line is what fills the storage tank, so you don't want back pressure from the tank reversing into the membrane filter which could severely damage it. So, there is a high Risk for Sewer Water to Back-flow into the Membrane Filter and Contaminate it as it is discharging water to the sewer drain if there is any noticeable pressure restriction in the drain distribution manifold. Second, this is why "Air-Gap" Faucets are supposed to be used when installing Reverse Osmosis Systems. With an Air-Gap Faucet, there are three (3) attachments for tubing at the base of the faucet, and a small hole drilled out underneath the lever or handle of the faucet. The 1/4" pressurized drain line tube from the RO System attaches to the 1/4" barbed fitting under the faucet base, then a 3/8" drain line tube attaches to the 3/8" barbed fitting. So when the drain water is pumped up to the faucet under pressure, it returns to the sewer line under Gravity, or No Back Pressure. Then, if the plumbing becomes restricted in any way that the RO Unit can't drain into the sewer under gravity feed, the hole drilled in the base of the faucet allows the back pressure to be escaped to the atmosphere, and if necessary drain water out of the hole until the plumbing pressure restriction can be resolved. This eliminates the possibility of a reverse flow pressure situation from occurring. Hope this helps, and you can always visit us online at www.puresafe.com We have filter cartridges for all makes and models of RO Systems, and 1/2 micron filters that no one else in the trade is using at this time.

I have a problem with my filter, its reverse osmosis. The filters are full of water but the tank is empty and not working.


Hello, first open the Reverse Osmosis faucet and see what the pace of the drip or water stream is. It should be a constant rapid drip. If it is, next disconnect the drain line of the RO System from the Drain Saddle Clamp attached to the plumbing under the sink. The Drain Water should be a "Steady Slow Stream" of water. If it is, next, take a Tire Pressure Gauge and attach it to the Shrader (Tire Valve) Valve at the bottom, side, or top of the storage tank to see what the air pressure is inside of the tank. The Tank pressure should be a minimum of 8-10 psi when completely empty of water. If the tank is empty you should be able to pick it up rather easy. If the air pressure is good in the tank, then next remove the primary Pre-Filter Cartridge from the first filter housing and reattach the filter housing. See if the Dripping from the RO faucet increases in Velocity or Pressure. If so, simply replace the filter. After performing these tests let me know what you discover. Thanks, Victor

I am getting slimy film floatys in water from my reverse osmosis system. I just changed the sediment and activated carbon filters.


When you replaced the cartridge did you by chance clean out the unit before putting in the new one? If not, then this is where it is coming from. I would suggest that you take it apart again and make sure that it is clean inside. This slime build up in the filter is completely normal and may also indicate you waited a little too long to replace. It also depends on the type of water you have as well.

I have installed many ro systems a=nd have had that problem Not only do youhave to replace the filters but make sure the drain hoses are clear

use a pipe cleaner or a a stiff wire
I also remove the connection going into the ptrap and clean back to faucet...it is usually real nasty
