Default My new RO is ready

Well it took 2 years and a few $$$$$ but I finally have the CDL 600 in place and 99% ready. I still have the filter to install in the tower and find someone that will let me steal 300 gallons of Soft water to do the start of year wash but I think its as good as I can get it.

Very nice setup. I like neat job you did with bringing the pipes thru the wall, very nice using the pvc unions there also.

Thanks Dennis you can never have to many unions when it comes to making things that need to be moved around.

EBay and they are cheap and the same ones on my hot tub and RO. I'm happy with them BUT I made the mistake of getting the ones that are slip-thread and I ended up taking a few apart to get slip-slip. Because I went and over tightened a reducer into one and a few minutes later I heard a snap and split the joint so I didn't want to chance it.

Great RO!

Which membrane? Mark 1, Mark E8 or H20?

Don't forget to unplug your column before start your RO for the first time. The submersible motor don't like to run dry.

You can plug your column just after water exit from the exaust valve at the top.

Rince your RO just after put your membrane in the column. Don't let the membrane in your column without rince it.

A 3 years old Mark 1 will not give you more than 400-500 GPH from 2% to 8%. It will not be an RO problem if you will not obtain 600 GPH.

If you need more flow, think to upgrade your membrane for an Mark E8 or an H20 and don't forget to do the conditioning cycle.

THANKS Mathieu I have the last clean report that says its at 93%. I will follow your advice. I have a friend down the road with the same unit but he is a little tight lipped as what is what or he doesn't run the RO I have everything they say I need to wash clean and condition it with soft water so I hope I get it down. My plan is to tap the trees and set the machine up Thanks again.
