SOURCE: The water will not drain into the storage tank,

The drain tube and or hole that is supposed to drain water into the bucket is clogged. To solve this problem, do the following:

First, turn the Unit OFF & Unplug it.
Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. NOTE: if you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar, but NO wire coat hangers.

Hope this helps you and thanks for using FixYa.

There is no water storage tank, just a coil of tubing and you just disconnect it at the outlet and drain it and hook it back up.

I think you have posted this several times so I wanted to add this.

The best thing is to have a dealer do it. You need to know if you have by-pass kits installed, depending on what you have for storage tanks they need to be drained, RV non-toxic anti-freeze needs to be added to plumbing and flushed through, water lines should be blown out along with draining so if there is a place where the water was level it gets forced out.

Here is a quick info for a skyline, but it really depends on what you have for plumbing.

Purchase 4-6 gallons of RV approved, non-toxic anti-freeze.
2. Drain all tanks, fresh water and sewage tanks.
3. Turn water heater by-pass valves to by-pass position. (The by pass valves are located near the
water heater incoming lines - an access panel may have to be removed depending upon the
4. Drain water heater.
5. If installed, remove water filter from assembly and discard. Install diverter if included.
6. Pour an amount of RV non-toxic anti-freeze into the fresh water tank to fill the tank above
minimum water pump operating level. (Use of a long funnel may be helpful) Add more, if
necessary, during procedure.
7. Turn on pump switch and open the cold water side of all faucet fixtures. Leave open until the
anti-freeze comes out (generally, pink in color). Repeat for hot water side.
8. Flush toilet until anti-freeze begins to flow into the bowl and then pour one gallon of anti-freeze
down the toilet to winterize the black tank.
9. Pour anti-freeze down each shower/tub, lavatory sink, and kitchen sink to fill p-traps.
10. To winterize gray tank(s) pour one gallon down each related sink drain.

*****Now the best thing is to post a new post and see if someone has your manual to be exact.

But if you get no response, and refuse to let a dealer do it, you have a little bit of info to help you.

Sorry I couldn't find the exact method for your model.

Culligan water machine water is flowing very slowly

The storage tank is probably bad. Shut all the water off to the RO, drain all the water from the RO tank, check the air pressure with a low pressure tire gauge. PSI should be 7psi with a 3 gallon tank. 12psi with a 10 gallon tank.
Add air to tank with a bicycle pump.

I have a Culligan AC 30 aqua-cleer drinking water system;after changing the particle filter and the carbonfilter , the storage tank does not fill.I have pumped air in it to pressure 0,7 bar.

When you put air in the tank did you make sure all the water was out of tank? In a three gallon tank there should be 7 lbs of air, 10 gallon 10 lbs of air.
There can be many reasons for no water in tank.
1. Bad bladder in holding tank. No back pressure on membrane (all water going to drain)
2. Faulty membrane (all the water going to drain)
3. Bad capillary tube (all the water going to drain)
4. Plugged check valve at top of membrane (no water)
5. Faulty water feed valve (piercing valve)
6. Fines from post carbon filter have plugged up the manifold (head) of RO unit.
7. Bad valve on RO tank
8. Plugged drain line

I bought a new tank for my reverse osmosis water treatment and it did not come with directions. It's supposed to be ''charged,'' whatever that means. When I hook it up to my system it does not fill with...

Typically a reverse osmosis storage tank should have a precharge of approximately 7 psi. Depending on the make/model of your tank it may have a higher charge currently which would cause the tank to not fill. There should be a schrader valve on the bottom or side of the tank. Using a tire gauge and bicycle pump you should be able to check the current pressure in the tank and adjust it up or down to 7 psi.
