How do I put my pull out faucet back?

Under the counter there is a weight on the hose. If it gets stuck on something you placed in the cabinet under the counter then the weight can't help you put the faucet head back in the fixture. Check the cabinet under so that the hose and weight are free.

Water filter drain running all the time

Is this a new system? The should be a small restriction in the drain line. The size of the restriction is matched to the gallon per minutes of the R.O. system. Yours could be missing or not the right size, ie not enough restriction.

GE Smart Water under sink dual water filters replaced. Very little water pressure. I have reinstalled them, no improvement. I have been replacing these filters for 5 years and have not encounerted this...

Hi jbboggeri,

Welcome to fixya!

I would go ahead and open the new set and install them. If you get pressure, you know the others were bad and can send them back for a refund.
If there is no change, you can always put them away and use them again later.

Please reply back and let me know how it went. Thanks,

Handie Andie

We have a reliance 501 propane water heater model # 5 40 porto manufactured in 1991 We have had build up of rust in the pipes from the tank to our dishwasher and sink. Our dishwasher is not cleaning...

After 18 years there will be a build up . you could flush the tank and see what comes out, replace the line to the sink and dishwasher , then you can decide if you want to replace the tank .Which sounds like it will need to be done .

I have a smartwater filter (model GXRLQ) under my sink and when I changed it, it began making noise like air was in the line. After the noise stopped, the water is barely flowing. Any suggestions?

If you were simply changing the filter, then I would pull the new cartridge back off and inspect the o-rings. It's possible that one got bunched on the install and is blocking the inlet/outlet of the water. Other wise if you had to turn off the water any where to change the filter, check the valve that the water runs through to see if it is turned on all the way.

GE SmartWater RO Filter Tank Leaking?

I had same system under my sink for same amount of time and have since then removed entirely for health reasons related to Ro Systems. Mainly the tanks becomes contaminated [alge build up]and my faimly had constant nagging stomach aches which took a long time to resolve untill we decided to disconnected and throw out our "beloved healthy RO System" and decided to install a bi annual disposable type filter system. If you are expereanceing this I would advise the same as for the leak ,There are so many connections under there and it is usually not the tank but the fittings in lines some where and the reason it looks like the tank is because that is the lowest point the leak has traveled. So check all your fittings and if you decide on simple water filter I will advise you.

Please rate. Thanks jj505

Slow water flow from GE SmartWater under sink water filter.

I solved the problem! The system's manifold (the plastic base you put the filter in) has small black conical shape button. When you tight the filter in, one of the two small triangle-shaped cams (located close to the filter's central hole) pushes the manifold's button, and this opens the water flow. The problem is that the cams are too low and do not push the button all the way in. Take a pliers and squeeze (not too much!) the cams, so they will raise a little: it will be enough to push the button to open the flow completely.
