R/O Water System

3 posts in this topic

I currently am having some problems with my R/O unit.

I have a Microline 435 and it was installed in my house before I bought it. It is only giving me about 1 cup of water before it seems to run out of water. I have heard that it might be the pressure in my tank. Anyone know how I add more pressure of even check it?

Thanks

I have an R/O system made by Premier and had the same problem you are having. My tank has an air pressure valve {just like a bicycle tire} on the bottom of it. I can check it with a tire guage and pump it up with a bicycle pump or any other type of air pump. Hope this helps.

Is the tank heavy? The bladder should have 20lbs or less of pressure since the whole system is pressure based. If you have waste water running constantly but the tank does not fill you could replace the membrane.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
