THERE ARE POTENTIALLY UNHEALTHY CONTAMINANTS IN YOUR WATER YOU DON’T WANT IN YOUR BODY
The safe drinking water act of 1974, which dictates the quality of water that you are legally allowed to get out of your tap, regulates less than 100 water contaminants. However the EPA estimates there are around 60,000 chemicals in the US right now. Just think about all of the medicines and prescriptions we take, pass through our system, and then end up back in our drinking water unregulated. The point isn’t to scare you, just to educate you about how we’ve been helping people improve their water by making it healthier. To reduce contaminants in your water up to 98% we have high quality Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filter systems available along with our dedicated service and maintenance. We also offer sediment filters, carbon filters (to remove chlorine and odors), Ultraviolet Lights (to kill living organisms), and even Water Ionizers to provide alkaline water.
How do I turn off the RO system if it is leaking?
- There are two shut off valves. One is near the cold water line going up to your hot and cold kitchen faucet. It is on the line feeding the RO system. The second one is located on top of the metal tank. Turn both handles ¼ turn to shut off the water. You can only turn the handle one way. The handle will be perpendicular to the body of the valve when it is shut off. When the handle is parallel to the tubing, it’s open.
Why is there a dark tint to my water?
- The first time you use your new reverse osmosis system or after the filters have been changed, the water may have a dark tint to it. Do not worry this is normal. The carbon filter is brand new and just needs to be flushed a little more. Open the reverse osmosis faucet and allow all the water to run out. This will empty the tank and flush out the carbon filter.
My water is white or cloudy. How can I clear it up?
- There are several reasons this may have occurred. Fill a glass of water and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Does the color disappear? If yes, then it is air bubbles in the line of the new system. Don’t worry; this will stop once all of the air is out of the lines. Open your new reverse osmosis faucet and allow all the water to run out. This will empty the tank and should remove all the excess air from the system. If no, it is most likely caused by a coral calcium mineralizer. Open your new reverse osmosis faucet and allow all the water to run out. You may have to do this more than once to flush the excess from the mineralizer.
Why do I hear a clicking or hissing noise coming from my system?
- This noise is normal and is caused by the little black pump on the system. This pump makes your RO system more efficient by minimizing the amount of water going to the drain. The noise will stop once the tank is full of drinking water. It could take several hours.
Why is there no water coming from the RO faucet?
This can happen for many reasons.
- The storage tank may be empty and simply needs time to refill.
- After several hours the storage tank is not full, the system probably needs servicing.
- The pre-filter may be clogged and needs replacing.
- Leak detector may have been tripped and the water coming into the
- RO has been turned off. Remove the sponge and put the lever down.
- Check for leaks in two (2) hours and call us if the RO is leaking.
