Operation Parameters – WARNING!!

The following conditions for feedwater supply must be met or warranty will be void:

1. Unit must be connected to a municipal or well water source that is treated and tested on a regular basis to ensure bacteriologically safe water.

2. Operating temperatures: Maximum 113oF, Minimum 33oF – CAUTION!! Do not allow unit to freeze. The membrane always contains water and will be destroyed if frozen. – WARNING!! Do not plumb unit to hot water. This will destroy the membrane and void the warranty and manufacturer’s responsibility.

3. Operating pressure: Maximum 85 PSI (5.95 kg/cm2), Minimum 40 PSI (2.95 kg/cm2) – The reverse osmosis unit is designed to operate at a water pressure in the range of 40 to 80 PSI. At pressure lower than this, the quantity as well as the quality will be reduced. At higher pressure, severe damage to the system may result. If local water pressure exeeds 85 PSI, a pressure regulator must be installed, reducing the water pressure into the system. – WARNING!! Warranty voided and manufacturer assumes no responsibility for damage to unit or property if pressure exceeds 85 PSI.

4. Turbidity: <5 NTU

5. pH: 4 to 11

6. Recommended hardness: Not to exceed 7 grains per gallon, or 120 PPM – RECOMMENDATION: If your water hardness exceeds 7 grains per gallon, or 120 PPM, you may wish to purchase a water softener for your home. See Products to purchase from us.

7. Recommended Total Dissolved Solids (TDS): Not to exceed 2000.

LIABILITY – WARNING!! The installer is responsible for any leaks resulting from installation of tubing or related fittings. The installer must check over the entire unit completely while under pressure to ensure unit is not leaking and is functioning properly. Liability resulting from failure to check for leaks while under pressure is the sole responsibility of the installer.
