Adding a reverse osmosis water filter system to home is one of the most important in today’s world because as a consumer you don’t want to be exposed to nasty water contaminants any longer to yourself and your loved ones. When you purchase a purifier either directly from the manufacturer either by making a physical visit to their local store or from their web platforms, in that case generally you get they also offer you the free installation of the purifier. However, when you buy the purifier from some third-party sources the benefits of free installation you may have to compromise with.
In such scenarios knowing about the process of RO installation and charges involved in the process is helpful.
Need for an RO: – Awareness about pure and safe drinking water is going throughout the country on a large scale. People are being educated to use a water purifier to be healthy. Many organizations and companies are focused towards providing a constant supply of fresh and drinkable water to customers of the large scale who are dependent on the utilization of tap, bore well, and municipal water supply.
These brands do not just build quality water purifiers, but it also gives fast customer support and services. When a consumer buys a new RO system, the associated company ensures that all it consumers are going to have an ample amount of safe and pure water for an extended period resulting in the excellent health.
Companies are having dedicated professional to accomplish the business goals of the organization in the true sense. The multi-stage Purification of their RO purifier removes dissolved impurities and Maintains minerals.
Superior filter with excellent build quality makes this purifier a notch above the rest. As per the WHO recommendation, these water purifier is made from 100% virgin Food Grade Plastic. The related membranes are used to control hardness present in the water. The distilled water and the deionized water is the most common forms of Purification of water, but it can also be purified by another process Like Membrane, carbon, Sediment, Microfilter, Ultra filter, and Ultraviolet.
Process of RO Installation: – A water purifier system is built of many small but complex components. So to purify the water properly and give pure, safe water at the output, this system need work intelligently.
Step Zero – unbox the system and take out all the components from the box. This step can also be known as a preparation step.
Selecting the place – You can install your RO system under a sink or in a basement. But try not to install the unit where it would be exposed to freezing temperatures. Making connecting to the icemaker or some other location can also be considered if that connection is established without using more than 12 inches of tubing. Otherwise, a delivery pump may be required for the purpose. Farther runs can be attempted, and a pump can be added later only if needed.
Membrane Installation – To install RO Membrane – the most critical component of the system open the RO cabinet containing the rest of the filters. Inside spot the membrane filter. And then as the next step remove pipes connected with the cap of filter. And in the final stage, open the cap and insert the Membrane into the filter case, then firmly close the cap again.
Assembling Filter tap and auto cut-off system – To join the Filter tap remove the screw and hold the valve into the opening provided in the water tank and place from inside the container onto the tap front-end of the system. And then put the screw that you just removed and tight the tap to get in place. Now for the ‘Auto cut-off system’ pull the floating mechanism from the wired connection. Remove the screw from the hollow cylinder and then attach filter beneath to the membrane compartment, now fix it there using the screw and then connect the electrical connection back to the cut-off system.
Connecting the Pipes – Now, start attaching the pipes of the RO purifier. The first thing is Inlet of the pre-filter has to be connected with the feed water valve attached to the tap. And then connect the outlet pre-filter to water inlet for the RO unit for the proper operation. Since the outlet of the RO unit sends out the wastewater, you need to attach a pipe to that end and leave the other purpose open into a sink or any other appropriate area for drain water. If you have purchased a wall-mount RO system, then hang the RO unit and the pre-filter on the wall and connect the system to an electric plug. And also make sure of NOT using the first batch of water produced when first installed the RO. It is always recommended to get this job done by some professional as the KentRO installation charges are very reasonable. However, a few people also like to do it by themselves.
