These instructions are fairly easy to follow and the unit can be installed
in a very short amount of time. It is advised that you get your local
plumber to connect the water fittings and check them for leaks.
Preparation for Installation:
This system may be mounted in either a vertical or horizontal position
and must be positioned to allow access for service and filter cartridge
changing. At the same time, the assembly should be relatively near the
spigot to maximize flow rate.
The storage tank can be placed on its side without affecting the performance
of the system. If there is insufficient room under the sink, the tank
may be located in an adjacent cupboard.
Installation of Water Supply Connector: ***MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOOKING UP TO THE COLD WATER.***
The water supply connector that comes with the unit is made up of
Water Supply Connector 1/2" male x 1/2" female NPT. Simply
disconnect cold water line from angle stop bottom or from faucet stud
on top. Complete with cone-washer and seal.
Assemble the water supply connector by inserting the Deliver-valve.
Screw the deliver-valve into the side of the water supply connector
using 3 to 4 wraps of Teflon tape.
Disconnect the water supply line from the cold water faucet underneath
sink. Attach and tighten water supply connector assembly being careful
not to pinch or crimp any tubing or water supply line while tightening.
Installation of Sink-top Faucet
Using a VSR drill with a carbide grinding burr, gently grind away
enough porcelain or enamel to more than accommodate the drill bit (about
the size of a dime). Enough surface material must be removed to expose
the base metal.
Using the 1/4" drill bit, drill a 1/4" hole through the
base metal. Operate the drill slowly and carefully, especially when
the drill is about to penetrate the metal. If necessary use a drop of
two of oil in the hole.
Repeat step 2. Using the 1/2" drill bit.
Mount the sink top factcet in the hole and using an adjustable wrench(or
hand) to hold the faucet, tighten the 9/16" nut.
Installation of Drain Saddle:
Position as far away from the garbage disposal as possible.
The drain saddle should be installed above the p-trap on the vertical
or horizontal tailpiece.
Drill a 1/4" hole into the drain pipe observing the above position.
Mount drain saddle aligning holes. (Drill bit may be left in saddle
hole for alignment)
Carefully tighten both screws on drain saddle till snug. Do not over
Installation of Storage Tank:
Wrap 4 to 5 winds of Teflon tape around metal tank threads.
Hand tighten plastic shut-off valve to tank. (Firm but not over tight.)
Tank should come from the factory with 8 to 14 lbs. PSI of air when
Mounting the Purification Assembly:
***DETERMINE IF MOUNTING IS NESSARY THIS CAN BE OPTIONAL.***
Mark screw locations at the desired positions. Use the two holes
on back of purification assembly mounting bracket for marker guides.
Screw wood screws supplied with unit into marked positions. Leave
screw heads out a little.
Mount purification assembly onto screws.
Installation of R.O. Membrane:
*** ORIGINAL PACKAGING IS TO PREVENT MEMBRANE DAMAGE DURING TRANSIT.***
* Remove the membrane housing cap.
Install the membrane by carefully pushing the spigot end into the
socket at the far end of the housing until completely in.
Replace housing cap.(watch out- the o'ring)
Connecting the Colour Tubing:
A.Connect the WHITE tubing to the water supply connector.
B. Connect the BLUE tubing to the sink top faucet. C. Connect the BLACK tubing to the drain saddle. D. Connect the RED tubing to the storage tank.
Start Up Procedure:
With everything connected, turn on the water check for leaks.
Make sure the storage tank shut-off valve is 'OFF' . Open the sink
Within a few minutes (up to 15) the water will start to run from
the faucet slowly.
Let the water run for at least 30 minutes. This flushes the carbon
filters on first time use.
After initial flushing, open the shut-off valve on the tank and close
the sink top faucet.
Tank will now fill (Usually 2 to 3 hours) After the tank has filled,
open the sink top faucet and drain all the water until the storage tank
is empty and there is only a small flow from the sink top faucet.***
DO NOT USE FIRST TANK OF WATER.***
Close the sink top faucet. The system is now ready for use.
