The drain line between the faucet and the sink drain pipe is probably clogged.


  1. First turn off the water to the RO system and close the valve from the storage tank.
  2. The hardest part is figuring out how to detach the tubes and couplings The link below shows how to do this. You do not need tools.
  3. http://www.freshwatersystems.com/support/103seriesmanual.pdf
  4. Remove the connector from the sink drain. Then remove the connector from the tube,
  5. I used a small skewer to clean out the gunk from the connector and then rinsed it out.
  6. I used a long skewer to loosen the gunk in the tube, then turned on the water to the system to force the gunk out.
  7. Then I just put it back together and it worked.

Pre-filter and carbon block filter are changed annually. The membrane is only changed every 3-7 years depending on water quality coming in, TDS and usage. Fourth filter is an in-line carbon filter that goes on the line up to the RO faucet.

Our Culligan water system under sink keeps backing up when we use it to get water - we only have this problem when we turn on the Culligan tap to get glass of water.


If you have an air gap faucet and the water is coming out there. The drain, for the RO, is plugged up or the drain line is pinched.

You are getting water feeding back to the kitchen faucet from the filter system. A check valve needs to be installed on the line feeding the drinking water system to prevent this. Excess pressure may also be causing these problems. An in-line flow restrictor may alleviate the dripping.

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.

I need a water diagram for a culligan water system serial number is AC10001293


Here is a link to the Culligan website for the AC 30 owners manual. It has a breakdown view of the RO.
http://www.eculligan.com/support/ac30_owners_guide.PDF
This is about as close as you will get to a water diagram for the RO. The only place to find a flow diagram is in a service manual and those are well protected by Culligan.

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.

How do i connect an RO culligan unit model no 20200112 if someone has a product manual I need to know where the different water hoses go into what connection


The number you gave is likely a serial number, so I am unsure as to which Culligan RO system you have. I have included a link below to a page with several different system manuals, many of which are Culligan.

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.
