1) Double check to see that all of the connections are secure.

2) Open the feedwater tapping valve and check the appliance

for leaks. If any leaks are detected, close the valve and

correct the problem before proceeding.

NOTE: If a leak occurs at a "Push In" plastic fitting, then

refer to Fig. 6.

3) Open the storage tank valve and lift the faucet handle until

a steady stream of water flows. Close the faucet, wait at

least 5 minutes and carefully check for leaks. Correct

them as necessary.

4) Plug in the appliance transformer.

NOTE: When the appliance is first turned on, water may

intermittently "spurt" from the air gap opening at the side of

the faucet. This is perfectly normal, and is caused by air

trapped in the system. This will usually disappear within a

short time.



1) With the tank valve closed (the tank should still contain the

sanitizing solution at this point), open the faucet (set the

faucet handle in the "up" position) and feedwater valve.

Water should begin to drip from the faucet within several

minutes. Continue to flush the system for 24 hours. Water

will steadily drip from the faucet at this time. During this

procedure, the tank is being intentionally bypassed in

order to thoroughly sanitize the tank and also flush the

membrane of any preservatives.

2) After flushing for 24 hours, shut off the faucet. Open the tank

valve, lift the faucet handle again and allow the tank to

completely empty. When the tank is empty, the faucet will

drip steadily. Measure and record the rate at which water

drips from the faucet. Use a graduated cylinder (in

milliliters) and a watch with a second hand to calculate the

approximate production in gallons per day (milliliters per

minute x 0.38=gpd). Proceed to check the reject flow by

disconnecting the tubing at the drain connection and

measuring the drip rate as outlined above. The ratio

should be a minimum of 2.5 (reject) to 1 (product).

Repeat every 5 minutes until the rate is constant. When

the rate is constant, the tank is empty.

3) Allow the system to operate in this condition overnight (or

24 hours) to ensure water purity.

4) Close the faucet and reinspect the appliance for leaks.

Allow the tank to fill completely (it will take approximately

4 hours), then drain the tank again.

The water should be

discarded because it may contain some preservative/

disinfectant solution.

5) The appliance should be ready to use as soon as the tank

refills. If any objectionable taste is noticed after the

second tankful is drained, instruct the customer to wait

and drain the tank the following day. Only at this time

should an icemaker be turned on if one is connected to

the appliance.

NOTE: If an optional percent rejection (PR) monitor is used

and the red light is on, service is required. Several tankfuls of

water may have to be used to completely flush the excess TDS

from the new carbon postfilter before a green light will show.



1) Clean up the work area thoroughly.

2) Fill out the warranty card and return it.

This product is outfitted with user friendly ‘Push In’ connectors. Proper use of the

connectors is shown in the diagrams.

It is most important that the tubing selected for use with these connectors be of

high quality, exact size and roundness, and with no surface nicks or scratches. If it is

necessary to cut the tubing, use a plastic tubing cutter or sharp razor knife. Make a

clean square cut.

Should a leak occur at a ‘Push-In’ connector, the cause is usually defective tubing.

To Fix:

Relieve pressure

• Release tubing

• Cut off at least 1/4” from end.

• Reattach tubing

• Confirm connection is leak free.
