Hmm, I didnt have any of the problems you have had. I did have several leaks initally, however that is to be expected whenever setting up a new RO
unit. I ignored his directions and used teflon tape anyway though, as I have allways had better luck with it than the other stuff. On the quick connects, Try pushing the hose in as far as it will go, then pull it back out a little. That will usually seat them well.
From all the people I have talked with, yours seems to be the exception, not the rule. Did you try calling the seller? He was extremely helpful with me when I called to ask a couple installation questions, he even called me back so I didnt even have to pay for the call!
Let me know how it works out for you.
hey zero... how long have you been using that system for. I just bought the same one and am only going to use it for my tank to keep the cost down on filters. Im just wondering if you've had to change the filters more often than expected. I have fairly good tap water here so thats a plus.
I have been using it for only about 3 months, however so far I have not seen an increase in my minerals based on the readings from the TDS
meter and I have VERY hard water. Be sure to flush your membrane about every couple hundred gallons or so, I do it once a month for about 15 minutes.
