Here are the steps to remove your RO system. Put a pan and a couple rags under sink to catch any water that might spill.
1. Label all the lines from RO (with masking tape) to remember where they go.
2. Turn the water off to RO system
3. Run all the water from the RO tank
4. Turn the valve off on RO tank.
5. Remove the line to the RO tank and pull tank out.
6. Remove the line to the RO drain.
a. If there is an AIR GAP faucet this line may go there first
b. plug the whole for RO drain or replace the standpipe
7. Remove the product line from RO faucet
8. Remove the water line feeding the RO system.
9. Make sure the valve feeding RO is shut off completely
a. If this valve is a piercing valve you may want to consider replacing the section of copper
plumbing because it will eventually leak if left unused.
10. When re-installing the RO remove old filters, sanitize system and replace with new filters.

How do i unhook the spigot from my undersink reverse osmosis system i cant get the hose connections to release so that i can take the spigot off the sink. i am putting in a new sink


If they are quick connect fittings make sure all the water pressure is off the lines. Turn off the RO tank and valve feeding system, open the faucet and try taking lines off again. If no luck, mark the lines with masking tape and cut them a couple inches below faucet to remove.

That is the drain for the reverse osmosis system. You have what is referred to as an AIR GAP faucet. The waste water is pushed up there before it goes to drain just as the drain for a dishwasher does. If water is coming out of the faucet the drain is most likely plugged or the line is kinked causing water to back up and overflow. Check the drain line for kinks and clean out the drain where it attaches to the stand pipe.

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.

Ice maker mal-formed ice


no "slug" is available however you could just use a reverse osmosis diaphram pressure tank to boost the water pressure. you can also use a water supply tube to bypass the in-refrigerator completely.

What line do you tap into to add an icemaker to a GE Reverse Osmosis water system?


If you want the reverse osmosis water to go to the ice maker then you tap in to the line that feeds the spiget on the sink.

Typically a reverse osmosis storage tank should have a precharge of approximately 7 psi. Depending on the make/model of your tank it may have a higher charge currently which would cause the tank to not fill. There should be a schrader valve on the bottom or side of the tank. Using a tire gauge and bicycle pump you should be able to check the current pressure in the tank and adjust it up or down to 7 psi.
