Plan Your Installation
Read through the entire manual before beginning your installation. Follow all steps exactly. Reading this manual will also help you get all the benefits from your system.
Your Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System can be installed under a sink or in a remote location. Typical remote sites are a laundry room or utility room. Review the location options below and determine where you are going to install your system.
UNDER THE SINK LOCATION
The Reverse Osmosis Filter Assembly and storage tank may be installed in a kitchen or bathroom sink cabinet. See Fig. 4. A suitable drain point is needed for drain water from the Reverse Osmosis system.
REMOTE INTERIOR LOCATION
The Reverse Osmosis Filter Assembly and storage tank may also be installed in a remote interior location away from the Reverse Osmosis Faucet. You will need a nearby water source and drain point. See Fig. 5.
CHECK SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Check size and position of items for proper installation into location chosen.
NOTE: For best system performance, the feed water to the system should be softened or have hardness less than 10 grains per gallon, with no iron.
