This thing is really ticking me off. I've put the shutoff in about every possible configuration and I can't get it to work. No matter where it goes or how it's plumbed it's not shutting off the waste water flow, and it makes this vibrating whine that I can hear across the house. The only time I've gotten it to work was by placing the switched side of the shutoff across the waste water line itself. It shut down pretty quick then, but I don't know if that would damage the membrane or anything else so I took it out. I don't know if I have a bad shutoff or what, but I'm getting tired of playing with it. BTW
, I'm not on well water and have good water pressure so i don't think that's a concern. I also replaced the float valve with a ball valve while I'm messing with it, so I'm getting a positive seal on the output. The RO
part seems to be working fine, its just that darn shutoff that's driving me nuts.
