Installing a Reverse Osmosis System at Home

Looking for potable drinking water supply for your home doesn’t always mean you’ll have to spend a lot on bottled or filtered water when you can turn to your tap water for drinking through the reverse osmosis system. In reverse osmosis, water is forced into a semi-permeable membrane, filtering out any impurities and producing cleaner water safe for drinking. In a day, a reverse osmosis system can provide 10 or more gallons of drinking water, more than enough for your family.

Installing a reverse osmosis system need not have to be installed by professionals, but it’s highly recommended. You can do it yourself in two hours or less. One of the first things you’ll have to do is to know the main components of the reverse osmosis system before proceeding with the actual installing, so read the accompanying manual to get yourself familiarized.

As specified in the instructions, hang the filter assembly on the back or side wall of your sink base, then turn off the cold and hot water shutoffs before installing the tee or saddle valve. The color-coded water supply line should be cut in a way that it’s above the cabinet base, then shorten the supply and waste lines to the faucet. Afterwards, begin attaching the lines to the fittings found on the base of the faucet, then fasten the faucet to the sink. Install the drain line adapter under the sink basket before finally setting the storage tank into place.
