I'd go for it am97. It sounds like an easy sell to the Mrs.

Sounds like you may have a stuck x, y, or z axis. Or a combination there of.

Perhaps it's time to bust out the test set.

Did you check your tech sheet?

In Topic: Hook up RO system to regular faucet?

15 June 2014 - 02:45 PM

Honestly, I don't know anything about that.

RO systems are very common in the southwest due to our extreme hard water issues. And the tap water just tastes like crap because all the stuff they have to put in it to make it "safe" to drink.

If you decide to install one, remember there is alot of discard water. For every gallon, 1/3 is used (drinkable) and 2/3 is discarded (drained). My in-laws run their discarded water thru an exterior wall and water their back yard with it. A jungle in the desert, to give you an idea. But if the system is installed in the middle of the home, then it is usally tapped into the sink drain. Not alot of basements here.

As far as the metal thing goes, I think you will be fine. All the lineset is 1/4" poly. Disclaimer follows: talk to the RO distributors in your area and see what works best. I'm sure you already knew that.

" From what I understand RO water is potentially harmful to metal."

Don't know your system David, but my storage tank is metal. Had it for years and have not had any issues, other than regular cleaning and filter/ membrane changes.

Where did you hear this?
