To replace the RO Filter follow the below steps
- Turn off the cold water supply line.
- Empty the RO holding tank by opening the RO water faucet. When the flow stops the tank is empty.
- Remove the yellow Pre-Carbon Filter by twisting it counter clockwise out of the manifold.
- Install a new blue RO Filter, making sure to twist the filters until they are snug with the filter manifold. Writing the date on the filters, setting a reminder on your phone, or filling out the filter replacement tracker included at the end of the user manual will help you to remember when it's time to replace the filter. Pre-Carbon Filters should be replaced every 6 months and VOC Filters should be replaced every 12 months for best performance.
- While the RO holding tank is empty it's a good idea to sanitize the holding tank. This ensures that there is no mold or bacterial growth in the holding tank. If you don’t wish to sanitize the unit right now skip to step 6
- To sanitize the tank first unscrew the cap on the RO sanitizer on top of the holding tank.
- Add two tablespoons of bleach.
- Check to make sure the O-ring seal on the main body of the sanitizer is in place and out of the way of any threads.
- Screw the cap for the RO sanitizer back on tightly.
- Open the holding tank valve
- Close the RO water faucet.
- Open the cold tap water supply valve.
- While the RO tank is filling, spend a few minutes checking to make sure there are no leaks in the system.
- After the RO holding tank has been completely filled (this can take up to 2 hours) empty the RO holding tank until the flow is reduced to a slow trickle
- Allow the RO Holding tank to fill normally.
