I went to Lowes and got everything I need to install it. Will be installing it in the laundry room with lag bolts to the wall.
Can anyone give me some basic tips on what to do after installation? I know the some of the basics, like black is waste, blue is fresh water. Got the Y splitter from Lowes to hook up with the water coming out for the washer. Only one I could find was one used for garden hoses like this one.
Is there anything I should do when I run it for the first time? If I let it run until TDS shows 0 is that good enough?
Any other tips would be helpful too. Thanks
You'll need to clean the membrane, they usually have a preservative on them.
Take out your di cartrage (and post filter if you have one) then run your system for a while. I think I let mine run for like 15-20 min, then checked the tds over a few more min to make sure it had stopped dropping. Once the membrane is flushed you can put your filters back in.
I also ran mine after that for another 20 min or so to flush out my carbon post filter that's on my drinking water line(I have mine set up with one tap for ro water, and another tap for rodi water)
