HI Everyone;
Was going to do a water change with my new RO unit and it doesn't work:mad: . I bought a portable unit on ebay for 45 buckes it didn't come with a manual. It seemed pretty easy to put together just plug in some tubes and put the membrane in the housing. I plugged it to my sink to get started and the hose keeps popping off. Here is the link http://stores.ebay.com/rofilterdepot . If anyone can help me figure out whats wrong I would really appreciate it:cool: . I have a service number but it doesn't answer. IT might be on the west coast so might need a cpl more hours before they open.
Thanks
Patrick

there were only 2 tubes to plug in and only 2 places to plug them. There is some kind of flow meter. I thought maybe I had plugged it in to my sink backward so I retried it but it did the same thing. It feels like its blocked somewhere.

remember to disgard the 1st 10 gallons of water produced, and make sure you are using the watrer from the blue tube and not the wastewater tube

thanks John and Vince There is no blue tube( i guess for 45 bucks no blue tube) I'm assuming the smaller tube is the wast tube. I'm going to call the 800 number just to make sure. I figure I will let it run until 1:30 then start saving it. I'm SOOOO excited.
Once again thanks guess I panicked a little. Ive never had good luck with ordering on-line

Also say if you make twenty gallons of good water and the little yellow hose pops out then you have a sixty gallon flood.

What do I know though?
