The right side of the 100 gpd Power RO unit will have three color-coded connections. Waste Line (Red), Supply Line (Yellow) and Filtered Line (Blue). Note: Before attaching the tubing, remove the blue clips and protective plugs from the housing attachments.
Insert the red 3 m tubing into the WASTE connection on the RO unit.
Insert the yellow 3 m tubing into the SUPPLY connection on the RO unit.
The RO unit includes an attachment to adapt to a standard threaded utility sink or garden hose. With the faucet connection installed, insert the other end of the yellow 3 m tubing into the adaptor.
Insert the blue 15 m tubing into the blue Filtered connection on the RO unit.
Attach the supply shut-off valve to the other end of the blue tubing.
Operation Water Supply
With all tubing connections in place, turn on the supply water to the RO unit. Check to ensure that all connections are secure and there are no leaks. If all connections are secure and watertight, replace the RO unit's cover and replace the four screws that were removed. Warning: When using a new Membrane for the first time, DO NOT use the first 30 gallons of filtered water produced from the RO unit for aquariums. The Membrane includes a preservative that is removed during initial water contact.
Don't take the quality of your tap water for granted. If you draw your water from a well, nature may not be providing you the perfect balance. If you are using tap water from your municipal department, it likely includes minerals and additives.
Algae are prolific and opportunistic organisms that take advantage of aquarium systems that are out of balance. Water quality issues create ideal conditions for algae. This article explains how proper water quality helps control algae.
