It is normal to have air in the water.
In North Dakota where I live, it's not uncommon to have
flamable natural gas come out of a faucet that is served
by a well.

The only way I can think of to get rid of the air before it
gets to your faucet is to install a tank in your basement
on the top of the water pipe, then on top of the tank
install an automatic air bleeder that is used on hot water
heat.

A plumber could design a system for you and install it.

All my best to you.

Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?

I use the bathtub to keep the splatter contained, and turn the hot tap on full first and let it run until you get a good air free flow. Then do cold tap and do same. Then do all taps same. Where is water being drawn from?

Taps get hot water the rads dont


The Tap water comes from a Domestic water heater. The radiators are heated from a separate source, usually a boiler of some kind. Follow the piping back to that source and see if it is heating. Next, if it has a pump it should be running. Last, look for air bleed ports on each radiator and bleed out any air in them. If nothing comes out when bleeding, air or water, look around the boiler for a water valve and add water till all the radiators are full. If you need more information, write back and try to be more specific. thank you for asking. Please grade the amount of help this has covered. Thanks again. Roger

Water leaks out of the dispenser


Hi

Under some circumstances the water dispenser can leak water into the spill trap when not in use. This problem could be caused by one of several scenarios involving the installation of the refrigerator doors. Small leaks are often triggered when a new water filter is installed. The exact location of some parts will vary depending on your model of refrigerator.

Keep a glass under the dispenser for up to three seconds after releasing the lever. The water doesn't cut off immediately, and there may be a few remaining drops in the system. This is normal and doesn't need any further attention.Run the water dispenser into a large container for three minutes. Empty the contents of the container down the sink. A newly installed water filter may spurt or leak water from the dispenser until the water is run for a few minutes. Some dispensers may cut off after a few minutes automatically.

Run the dispenser intermittently -- five seconds on, five seconds off -- for two minutes. This measure clears air trapped in the supply line, filter and dispenser system. Some dispensers will spurt or leak water until all air is purged from the system. You should follow this step each time the water is disconnected or the filter changed.Ensure all components of the water supply have been properly connected. All connections should be tightly screwed in place and pipes straight so water doesn't leak out of the pipes or dispenser nozzle. Contact a technician if you didn't install the refrigerator yourself.
