Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System troubles? Getting poor flow or great flow at first and then it slows to a trickle. Maybe water keeps running to the drain? With all these pipes how do you even start to trouble shoot the thing? I’m going to show you how to troubleshoot and repair your RO system for your family starting right now! Whether you’re a DIY homeowner, plumber or water treatment professional I’m going to show you the process to troubleshoot and fix an RO.

After you start getting a steady drip, measure the amount of water you get in 60 seconds. 6) Check the flow coming from the drain line against approximate specifications. 7) Check your feed water pressure with a pressure gauge like this, it should be at least 30 psi. 8) Shut off the supply and tank, open the faucet to release pressure and disconnect tubing going to inlet. Open supply, is there any water slowly coming out? 9) Start at the beginning and check the flow before and after every component Water slows to a trickle after very little use – usually the cause is the tank has lost it’s pre charge This YouTube video of mine shows you how    • Reverse Osmosis T...   Water Continuously flows to the drain – typically this means that the Automatic Shut Off or ASO is not shutting off the flow when the tank is full.
