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.

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.

I can't remove the filter sump from the Kenmore under sink filter unit. I am turning the correct direction. Broke one wrench already. Don't want to snap the second one. Full product id is: Kenmore Two...

Mark and unhook all the tubes from the filter. Take it out and place it on a table horizontally. This is all about correct leverage.

While holding the reverse osmosis system in one hand, slide the wrench into a canister and turn it counter-clockwise.
If this still does not work, you may have to soak the filter canisters (bottom housing part ONLY) in warm water with vinegar and try the steps above again.

I bought a new tank for my reverse osmosis water treatment and it did not come with directions. It's supposed to be ''charged,'' whatever that means. When I hook it up to my system it does not fill with...

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.
