The filters that you should replace every the six months are the two pre/post filters (FQROPF). The membrane (FQROMF) needs to be replaced every 1 to 2 years. During the filter change, bacteria could be introduced, so it is recommended that you sanitize the tank while changing the filters. Here are the filters you need to replace:

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
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.

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.

I believe the ratio is 5-1, so when you use 1 cup it uses 5 cups to replace that cup. The reject water will slowly run down the drain, the extra four cups.

An RO drinking water air gap faucet would be the ideal faucet to purchase for your RO system. Here are a few options you can choose from that may come in brushed nickel: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/c-821-ro-drinking-water-air-gap-faucets.aspx
