There probably is low pressure in the RO tank. Take it off, Add some air until all the water comes out. Then set tank pressure to 7psi for a 3 gallon tank. If this is not the case then inspect the water valve feeding the RO system.

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 want to unhook my reverse osmosis how do u do that and what are the steps


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.

The tank will not fill up, air pressure is good in tank


There are several things to look for here.
1. Turn the feed valve off. Take the product line off the RO tank (shut the tank valve off first), turn
the feed valve back on and see if water is coming out the product line to RO tank
2. Make sure the feed valve is supplying water. If it's a piercing valve they can get plugged with debris.
3. Make sure there is water going to the drain
4. If the filters were just replaced, remove them, inspect them thoroughly and re-install
5. In an empty 3 gallon RO tank there should be 7 psi pressure. If there is too much pressure it will
prevent the tank from filling up.
6. Make sure there are no kinks in any of the RO lines.

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system


Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

Air tank (underneath house) does not push water out of spigot in sinke or refridgerator.


You need to test the air pressure with the tank totally empty, remove the tube that is going into the tank and open the tank valve to release all water, if water is in tank and does not come out your bladder is finished and you will need a new tank, if you are able to get all the water out then you need to test PSI again and it needs to be between 7-10 psi, this way when the bladder fills up again with water that pressure will be the ideal 40-50 psi.

Have a kent r/o system dont know how to hook it up is there any way someone can help


Make sure that all valves are in the open position.
Try to recharge the water storage tank. Here are the steps to follow.
* In General: When any type shut-off valve handle is positioned so that it is parallel or in line with the tubing that enters the valve, valve is OPEN. When handle is turned perpendicular to tubing that enters valve, valve is CLOSED.

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve
To recharge RO system tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this
procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.

Culligan RO sstem has recently stopped producing more that 6 oz


This might be a possible tank pressure issue. This could also be a clogged filter. I would first check the tank pressure by using the following steps

Water won't flow from GE Smart Water under-sink RO water filter


Disconnect the water pressure tank making sure the end the line hooks up to is open. The tank should be relatively light, and if you shake it you should not hear any water. If you hear water in it, or it feels heavy, that means the bladder inside the tank has failed. Replace the tank with a new one, and set the pressure on the bicycle type valve at 8 PSI before you connect the tank up to the water line.

It could be air if you recently had the water off at the main and let the pipes drain, but this would go away after a short while. It is most likely either a feed line from the wall to the faucet flexing when the pressure and hitting something under the sink or a water line in the wall that may have not been strapped properly to the stud when installed. They bounce around sometimes if not secured. Hopefully the feed line as the second is a bit more work to correct.

Good Luck
