I've been using my portable RO
unit for several months now and have remembered somebody suggesting that it ought to be flushed every so many weeks. However, I can't find any instructions on how to do that. Google searching basically just gets me variations of the following:
"The best way to do it is to buy a flush kit, their pretty easy to install..Another way is to remove the flow restrictor and turn on the water with the restrictor out for 20-30 seconds."
As I understand this, they're suggesting disconnecting a small plastic piece from the waste line, but I can't see how this would remove built-up nasties. Seems like the best way to flush the system would be to reverse the flow of water, pushing all the built-up minerals out, but that doesn't sound right and I don't want to risk damaging the system. I've tried emailing the eBay store where I purchased this but there seems to be a language barrier and he won't answer the question any better than did the quote above.
So, can anybody give me a better idea on how to do this. If pix would help, please let me know.
