If this is a booster pump, many booster pumps like Shurflo have an adjustment at the top (allen screw) to back off on the pump pressure, turn to left to back off on pressure. If it never shuts off this can be an indication of a bad membrane, capillary tube, flow restrictor or automatic shutoff, causing all the water to run to drain. If you have low quantities of water, but pump always runs, this could part of the problem. Also high TDS (total dissolved solids) will cause the pump to work more. The higher the TDS 500+ppm the harder it is to produce quality water. With high TDS it's almost like taking muddy water, running it through filters and getting drinkable water. So the RO and pump have to work much harder to produce any quantity and quality of water.

Considering that wells are constantly exposed to possible bacterial...

You have had a water quality test and found that you private well is contaminated with bacteria. The next question is what can you do for water well treatment to make the water well quality acceptable for you and you family.

This question and tip was brought to my mind after getting an email from a brother in law about how to treat his water well with chlorine to kill bacteria is his well. So here is the process that you can use to treat your well if you know or suspect that you may have bacteria in your well water. This can also be used for regular well cleaning also. The chlorine will release the dirt in your well and the water will bring it up when you run the water. Regular treatment with chlorine is very effective at keeping a well free of debris and algae.

Go to your grocery store and purchase gallon of regular strength unscented Clorox bleach. The generic bleaches will work just fine also as long as they are unscented. This will cost only a couple of bucks. Also, if you have a water filter, make sure that you grab a couple of extra filters. The dirt released will plug the filter quickly. A carbon filter is a good idea for removing the last bit of chlorine smell from the water after purging the well of the chlorine.

Take the well cap off of the top of your well. Use a six foot or so long piece of PVC pipe to pour the chlorine through. This will keep the chlorine from getting on the pitless adapter and ruining the brass parts. They do not like each other.

After dumping in the chlorine, run your water at every tap in the house both hot and cold till you get the smell of the chlorine. It is best if you do this when you will not be using your water for at least 10 -12 hours, like at bedtime. Then let it set as long as possible to give the chlorine time to disinfect the piping and water.

After this time, then run the water till you remove the chlorine from the well and the piping. For some wells this will not take long and for others it may take a very long time.

This process has now given you a clean well and a disinfected water system!

This also is a very good way to make sure that you have good clean water, after a water well pump replacement.

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?

Sink tap has overflow going directly into the drain and constantly running. This is a reverse osmosis system that is outside warranty.

If you mean the little weep hole on the tap is leaking? If so, then the drain line connected to the sink drain is clogged. Remove this line and see if it's draining free.(have bucket ready) Most likely it will be where it enters your sink drain at that fitting, clogged with sink drain materials.

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.
