They should have told you if it was fedex, ups, usps...whatever. Their main page will have a box for the tracking number.

How is the ro/di giving you trouble? Whats the problem? I'm no expert, but I am good enough to do some of my own plumbing...so I might be able to help... as long as it is a simple set up lol.

You aren't getting your return water due to the leak. I had that issue at first. Either you can tighten that up more to stop the leaking...or you tightened it to much. When you tighten it to much you can break the seal and strip the threads out of it. It can be a delicate art...but thankfully I have a unit not only on my home water, but my parents have one and a UV sterilizer on theirs. So I've played with them enough. Try loosening it alittle bit and give it another shot. If that doesn't help then tighten more. If that doesn't do it, find someone stronger than you.

Type it into google and it'll tell you what they are talking about. But pretty much it is a full flow that will flush out the system, rather than going through a restrictor. I just ran about...10 gallons of distilled and threw it away to make sure things were clean in there. That's all I did with mine.
