The Easiest Ever Reverse Osmosis Set-Up Instructions and Video
Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on 23rd Jul 2010
Some people just have to use reverse osmosis with their water ionizers. Certain things only reverse osmosis or some other nano-filtration system can do [such as removing sodium and dissolved solids in the water].
I don’t want to make reverse osmosis sound too easy, but it’s not very hard. You need to know what you’re doing though, so for anyone considering setting up a reverse-osmosis-remineralizer-system to use with their water ionizer, this is a must-see! Setting up a reverse osmosis system is something that is done once and then attended to only rarely, if you do the job right in the first place.
Take your time and know before you go on installing an RO. A word of warning: A leak in your water line at any point in your set-up can cause untold damage to your house if it went unnoticed. So, be careful when setting up your RO system and get a plumber or handy-man if you’re still not sure of the instructions once you read and watch them.
Some people must use a reverse osmosis system. Who? Why?
* People who have water that is so hard or full of dissolved solids that otherwise they couldn’t get good ionized water from their water ionizer.
* People who want their water to be the cleanest, purest ionized water possible with only the best organic minerals in it.
*People who need to get salt out of their water.
The IonLife Reverse Osmosis System Complete with Remineralizer
IonLife has a reverse osmosis system that was specifically designed to work well with a water ionizer. It won’t work perfectly with all water ionizers though. If the ionizer has a 3/8 inch water feed line, then it’s likely that its flow rate is too great to work well with a reverse osmosis. Also, if the watts are over 185, it’s doubtful that you’ll be able to slow down your water ionizer enough to be a good match for reverse osmosis. Check with your sales associate before you buy a water ionizer if you have a reverse osmosis.
Not every reverse osmosis has a sufficient amount of water flow, pressure, and mineralization to be compatible with a water ionizer. If you already own a reverse osmosis system, check with us to see if your RO will work with a water ionizer and also to make sure you have a good enough remineralizer.
Easy RO Instructions:
The IonLife Reverse Osmosis System comes with instructions, but they are very confusing to follow.
In this blog post we are giving you a set of instructions that you will be able to follow much more easily. The videos along with the descriptions, below, are meant to outline, sequence and clarify the IonLife’s instructions in the above pdf.
RO Instructions Made Easy [Watch videos, below, for clarification]
1. Check the air pressure in the RO tank and make sure it’s adjusted to 13 psi
2. Install the ball valve to top of RO tank [use plumber’s tape — see video & instructions]
3. Install the Drain Clamp [see instructions], and hook the black drain hose to the the RO [see video & instructions’ diagram]
4. Install the “shut off” for the red “water feed” line and hook the water feed hose to the input side of the double filter housing.
5. Install a short hose from the “out” side of the double filter housing to the auto shut-off valve. [see diagram]
6. Hook up the yellow hose between the auto shut-off valve and the ball-valve of the tank.
7. Check the system for leaks.
a. Double-check every connector to make sure all are pushed in completely. Also check the tightness of the filter housings.
b. Install a simple output shut-off in the line going to the ionizer or connect the water output hose to the RO faucet that came with your RO system and use that as a shut-off.
c. Turn the tank ball-valve to “off” and the output shut-off to “off”
d. Turn the water on at the input shut-off.
e. Check the system thoroughly for leaks. Wait 10 minutes …check again.
8. Turn output shut-off to “on”to check if water flow is good…let the system drain for a few minutes then turn it back off.
9. Fill the tank. Do this by turning the output shut-off to “off” and turn the ball-valve to “on”.
10. Wait 2 hours while tank fills completely.
11. Open the output shut off [in the “on” position] so as to drain the entire tank. Wait an hour.
12. Stop draining the system by turning the output shut-off to the “off” position.
13. Now the output hose can be connected to the ionizer.
