SOURCE: Culligan RO sstem has recently stopped producing more that 6 oz

This might be a possible tank pressure issue. This could also be a clogged filter. I would first check the tank pressure by using the following steps

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve

To recharge RO System Tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.

If you want the reverse osmosis water to go to the ice maker then you tap in to the line that feeds the spiget on the sink.

SOURCE: I have a GE smartwater reverse osmosis system

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.

What water pressure is required for a Kenmore Elite water dispener unit


Water valves require a pressure of 20# to 120# to operate. If you have a filter, make sure it's not restricting the water flow. The same goes for filters in reverse osmosis. It is not recommended to use to filtration systems. Finally, if your supply line comes from a line piercing valve, make sure the pierced hole is clear by closing and reopening the valve.

The boiler is contaminated if the smells funny, if not then the water is leeching the minerals out of the boiler. RO water is an acid (pure water), it is just as bad as distilled water for espresso machines.

How do you know if you need to replace the RO membrane filter in the culligan good water machine


A TDS (total dissolved solids)meter is needed to test the Reverse Osmosis water and compare it to the feed water to determine how much TDS is being removed. Reverse osmosis membranes are designed to remove 80-95% of the TDS in your water supply.

For example: If your water has 500ppm of TDS the minimum TDS removal should be 400ppm leaving 100ppm. If the TDS from the Reverse Osmosis System drops to these levels it is time to change the Membrane.
Typically an RO system will consistently remove 90+% of TDS for many years. The normal lifespan for a membrane can be anywhere from 3-10 years. It all depends on the TDS of your water and your water usage. The higher the TDS the more frequently the membrane needs replacing. The other filters should be replaced every 6 months to keep the quality up and protect the membrane.
A TDS of 1000ppm compared to 100ppm is much more difficult remove to acceptable levels. I like to compare 1000TDS to taking muddy water, forcing it through a filter and getting drinking water. Where 100TDS may be more like a clear glass of water. Consequently a reverse osmosis system on high TDS will be less efficient, less gallons produced and filters will need to be changed more frequently to keep the quality and quantity up.

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.

Ice Maker Not Working


Hi: A lot of reverse osmosis systems don't supply enough water pressure to the ice maker to fill. Contact your manufactrue of your reverse osmosis system and see if it works with icemakers. I thind usually the require at least 20-30psi. Or hook your refrigerator to city pressure to see if it works. Also I don't know if you have just an ice maker or a water dispensing side by side, or your water quality. If you just have an icemaker, most chlorine will evaporate before the ice is frozen, any odors in the water will still be there. Good Luck, Jeff

Kenmore side by side dirty water


the problem might be linked ot your reverse osmosis system itself, something about filtering and storing previously filtered water, which if i remember correctly creates a "harmless" bio film the consistency of what appears to be brine shrimp sized particles floating in water. so i would remove the filter from the refig and flush out again.
