Bulk Reef Supply Reverse Osmosis Deionization Systems only take a few minutes to have connected and making purified water. All of the plumbing on the RO/DI unit will be complete and all you will need to do is connect the tubing to a suitable source water connection, and direct the product and wastewater lines. BRS 5 Stage RO/DI systems have 1 sediment filter, 2 carbon blocks, 1 membrane, and 1 deionization stage making them perfect for well water, and almost all types of city water that is treated with chlorine.
Red Tubing - Source water RO intake Blue Tubing - Purified product water from the DI Black Tubing - Wastewater
- Unpackage the RODI system and select the source water adapter of your choice and with your home's water turned OFF, install the source water adapter to a cold water line. Connecting any reverse osmosis system to a hot water line may cause irreversible damage to the membrane.
- Attach the Red line to the source water connection adapter.
- Connect the Blue product water tubing that is attached to the RO systems body to the single DI canisters input fitting.
- Direct the Blue product water line to a suitable water storage/collection container. This is the water that you will want to use in your aquarium.
- Connect/Direct the Black wastewater line to a drain. Wastewater is considered a brine solution that should not be used in aquariums. The brine will be extremely hard, and high in TDS.
- When all three connections are made, slowly turn on the source water supply and allow the system to run for one hour discarding any water produced through the Black or Blue lines. While the system is priming it is a good time to check for leaks from any fittings or connection points.
(Discarding the first couple gallons of product water allows your carbon blocks to flush any potential fines and preservation oils from the surface of the membranes.)
- Your Bulk Reef Supply RO/DI System is now ready for use.
