6 stage ro system under counter style will not stop draining or producing ro water at all I removed unit changed 3 pre filters and a post polisher now I gotta problem How long will this unit run to fill...


If the RO is not shutting off and there is no water from tank there are several things to check.
1. The product water tank is probably low on air. The tank may be full but no water will come out. Put enough air in tank to force out all the water then reset air pre-charge to 7psi for 3 gallon tank.
2. The capillary tube / check valve of RO system is bad. This puts back pressure on membrane to help create water.
3. The Automatic shutoff is not working, causing the unit to run constantly.
I would have to know what model RO it is to narrow down the problem further.
Depending on the Membrane production 10, 25 gpd, etc. and the TDS of water it may take 24 hrs to fill the tank.

I am installing a reverse osmosis system in my home and need a "dummy cartridge" part to replace the water filter that is in the refrigerator - PureSource RG-100 and how do I get it?


hello.
i know such thing exist but i am having a hard time finding a part number for it. A alternative would be to in essence bypass the ref.filter this way.
The water line on the back of the refrig where the house plumbing connects to feeds directly into the filter first then out of the filter into the water valve to be dispensed to icemaker and door dispenser.you could connect the water supply from the RO system directly to the water valve instead of connecting the RO to the inline refrig filter.

I want to unhook my reverse osmosis how do u do that and what are the steps


Here are the steps to remove your RO system. Put a pan and a couple rags under sink to catch any water that might spill.
1. Label all the lines from RO (with masking tape) to remember where they go.
2. Turn the water off to RO system
3. Run all the water from the RO tank
4. Turn the valve off on RO tank.
5. Remove the line to the RO tank and pull tank out.
6. Remove the line to the RO drain.
a. If there is an AIR GAP faucet this line may go there first
b. plug the whole for RO drain or replace the standpipe
7. Remove the product line from RO faucet
8. Remove the water line feeding the RO system.
9. Make sure the valve feeding RO is shut off completely
a. If this valve is a piercing valve you may want to consider replacing the section of copper
plumbing because it will eventually leak if left unused.
10. When re-installing the RO remove old filters, sanitize system and replace with new filters.

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system


Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

Culligan ac 30 reverse osmosis system - changed the filters, good flow for 3 days then began diminishing. Now nothing comes out of the faucet. Holding tank is empty.


I would pull out all the filters changed and check them. If a GAC filter is used as the post filter, before the RO tank, carbon fines can come out of the filter and can plug up the head on the RO system. Make sure the sediment pre-filter is not plugged and there is plenty of water supply. You may have lost pressure in the RO tank. A 3 gallon tank should have 7psi pressure when totally empty.

When replacing the filters it says to put bleach in the 5 micron housing and carbon filter . do you put both filters in and add bleach to both


I prefer to clean the housings out with about a tablespoon of bleach before installing filters. TFC membranes used in almost all RO systems are susceptible to chlorine degradation. So unless you pull all the filters and sanitize the system it is NOT a good idea to add bleach to housing when installing filters. It helps to use latex gloves when changing filters to prevent bacterial contamination from your hands. This is the main reason RO systems need to be sanitized with filter changes.

Indicator lites on the GE RO facuet do not lite. Batteries have been changed several time and the filters are not that old.


If you have concern about the quality of water being produced by your RO system, I would recommend using a handheld or in-line TDS meter. Instead of a red or green LED, these meters will give you a reading of TDS (total dissolved solids) in parts per million (PPM). With either of these meters you are taking a reading from the feed water to the system as well as from the product water, you then can calculate the percentage of solids being rejected by the RO system (using the simple equation listed below). This way you will know exactly how well the RO system is working and when the membrane needs to be replaced. I have included links below to our selection of handheld and in-line TDS meters as well as an instructional video that explains how to use a handheld TDS meter.

Here is a helpful link that includes the formula for calculating percent rejection.

How to sanitize ac30 culligan RO sytem?


It helps to sanitize the RO system each time you change the filters. Always test the RO water with a TDS meter to determine if the TDS rejection has dropped below 80% rejection. If it has the membrane should be changed along with the other filters. Always wear latex gloves when changing RO filters to prevent bacterial contamination. There are complete instructions on sanitizing the RO in the Culligan manual. Here is the link for the AC30 Manual.
