Q. "Can I use copper tubing to connect my Reverse Osmosis system to my dispenser faucet?"
A. You can run copper tubing to supply water to the Reverse Osmosis system but Reverse Osmosis water should NOT be run through copper tubing or any metal piping. Reverse Osmosis water is so pure it will cause the copper to leach into the water causing an objectionable taste to the user and after a short time pin holes will form in the copper tubing as it erodes.
Q. "Our water hardness is over 10 grains per gallon, and you say the membrane life may be shortened. How much will it be shortened?"
A. Every water supply has different conditions and there is no way to know how much shorter the life expectancy of the membrane will be. However, the addition of a water softener can help lengthen the membrane life since a water softener will usually reduce hardness down to 1 grain per gallon or less.
Q. "How long does it take to fill the water storage tank?"
A. Normally it takes 4-6 hours to fill the storage tank. If you have low incoming water pressure or water temperature then the production rate can be drastically reduced.
Q. "We are installing our Reverse Osmosis system. How much air pressure should be in the provided storage tank?"
A. The storage tank air pressure should be between 5-7 psi when empty of water. If the tank air pressure is below 5 psi then add air. If the tank air pressure is above 7 psi then bleed the air until it is below 7 psi but not lower than 5 psi. Check the air pressure of the storage tank only when the tank is empty of water.
Q. "We had our water tested and test results show our hardness level is 230 ppm or 230 mg/l. How do we convert this number to grains per gallon?"
A. To convert from parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/L) to grains per gallon (gpg), divide the ppm or mg/L number by 17.1. Example: 230 ppm ÷ 17.1 = 13.45 grains per gallon.
Note: One part per million (ppm) is equal to one milligram per liter (mg/L).
