Congratulations on you new Reverse Osmosis Water System from Think Pure Water
RO systems produce the purest water in the world. To really understand the process, the equipment, the water, and to learn how to minimize the amount of reject water, click on recent post: ABOUT REVERSE OSMOSIS.
STARTING UP your newly installed system. All RO systems produce water slowly and also produce reject water in the process. Therefore, a storage tank is necessary so plenty of pure water is always available. The first TWO full tanks MUST be discarded into the drain to clear the system of disinfectant crystals in the stainless steel tank.
STEP 1. Allow the 2.5 gallon tank to fill completely ….. about 2 to 3 hours. ( if you listen closely to the disposal drain in the sink, you can often, but not always, hear the reject water passing thru there. When the noise stops, the tank is full ).
STEP 2. Open the faucet valve and drain the tank to empty ….. about 4 to 6 minutes. ( a small dribble means the tank is empty )
STEP 3. SHUT OFF THE FAUCET ….. so the tank can refill. ( if you don’t, the water that’s supposed to fill the tank will dribble out the faucet continuously.
STEP 4. Let the tank fill again ….. about 2 to 3 hours.
STEP 5. Open the faucet valve and drain the tank to empty ….. about 4 to 6 minutes.
STEP 6. SHUT OFF THE FAUCET AGAIN and let the tank fill ….. about 2 to 3 hours.
This 3rd tank is now ready to enjoy.
