SOURCE: GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole

Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

Probably some gunk clogging the drain line. First step would be to remove the drain line from underneath the sink and check to see that it is clear. If it isn't, the next thing that may happen is when it gets completely clogged, water will start shooting out of the weep hole. As an added measure< i would say to force compressed air down the weep hole to clean out any clog in the line that you can't reach.

Water flowing past a hole (or connection) in a pipe will cause a vacuum at that connection. Is there water flowing anywhere else in the system?

R/o faucet weep hole has a vacuum issue


Try installing a check valve, or back-flow preventer. Also try getting all the air out of filters, they may have a purge valve or small screw to remove air from system.

Mintcraft kitchen faucet # 630-553 leaking from small hole in back of faucet


The hole is very small in the tail pipe and when you throw food, grease, it clogs this hole either partially or fully. When this happens then the water runs all over the sink through the weep hole. Which is the worst design I ever seen. By hand unscrew the black compression nut. Get a pipe cleaner or piece of wire, clean out the tube and especially the drain saddle. Reassemble and problem should be fixed.

Water leaking from front of oil pan


Very likely coming from the weep hole in the water pump, and dribbling down front of engine.
The weep hole is usually on the hidden side (back) of water punp and not easily seen. follow the trickle.
When water pump begins to leak like that, it means the bearing are wearing, and the seal is giving out as consequense. It will steadliy get worse. Verify the source of leak and replace the water pump if indicated..

There is a very slow leak only at the weep hole site under the faucet, not at the main faucet outlet


The hole is designed to let water out instead of going back into your wall. The spout needs to be taken off (unscrewed usually by hand) and tephlon tape needs to be put on the threads coming out of the wall. After this is done, screw the spout back on. Should be all set.

My Culligan RO faucet has an ''air gap'' leak. How do I clear the clogged debris causing the water to constantly run? Culligan told me that the Faucet/Air gap is clogged. Need to dislodge the debris.


Normally when it leaks out the weep hole the drain line is plugged under the sink....turn off the ro to where it's not making water, disconnect the drain hose and flush it out....make sure the adapter that's connected to the drain pipe is still lined up with the hole if it was moved the water can't get to the drain.

No, what you're seeing is the weep hole leaking on the water pump. This is the warning sign that the water pump is worn out. Don't use any stop leak or anything to attempt to stop it. You'll be waisting your time. You'll have to replace water pump at this point.
