Have an under sink Culligan RO system with 4 potential filters but it only uses 3 (was so installed by Culligan). Filters are labeled - reading left to right Sediment SED10 ...


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.

How do you know if you need to replace the RO membrane filter in the culligan good water machine


A TDS (total dissolved solids)meter is needed to test the Reverse Osmosis water and compare it to the feed water to determine how much TDS is being removed. Reverse osmosis membranes are designed to remove 80-95% of the TDS in your water supply.

For example: If your water has 500ppm of TDS the minimum TDS removal should be 400ppm leaving 100ppm. If the TDS from the Reverse Osmosis System drops to these levels it is time to change the Membrane.
Typically an RO system will consistently remove 90+% of TDS for many years. The normal lifespan for a membrane can be anywhere from 3-10 years. It all depends on the TDS of your water and your water usage. The higher the TDS the more frequently the membrane needs replacing. The other filters should be replaced every 6 months to keep the quality up and protect the membrane.
A TDS of 1000ppm compared to 100ppm is much more difficult remove to acceptable levels. I like to compare 1000TDS to taking muddy water, forcing it through a filter and getting drinking water. Where 100TDS may be more like a clear glass of water. Consequently a reverse osmosis system on high TDS will be less efficient, less gallons produced and filters will need to be changed more frequently to keep the quality and quantity up.

I have a ac30 system do I have to sanitize every


Sanitizing the reverse osmosis system each time you change filters is a good practice. It is very easy to introduce bacteria into the RO system simply from your hands. I prefer to clean the housings with a tablespoon of bleach and rinse them thoroughly. Most RO systems now have TFC membranes, these membranes are susceptible to chlorine damage so it is important that any bleach not come in contact with the membrane. Changing of the capillary tube should be done about every 3yrs or if any iron is present sooner. It also helps to wear latex gloves when changing filters to prevent introducing bacteria into the RO. If this is done you may get by with sanitizing every other time. Make sure you dump at least 2 tanks of water after installing new filters and sanitizing.

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.
