Much like the softener, most folks don’t give much thought to their reverse osmosis drinking water system on a day to day basis. But when you are cleaning the cabinets under the sink, give it a little extra look as well. As they say, “an ounce of prevention…” If your equipment is installed in the basement you can look at it when you check over the softener.
Reverse Osmosis Inspection
Check the connection to the water supply. This is usually a connection to your cold water supply line directly under the regular faucet. Look for moisture and/or signs of corrosion. Look also directly below this connection for signs of water on the base of your cabinet – if you see water or corrosion the connection may need replaced. Follow the plastic feed line from the supply connection to the systems manifold housing (it holds the filters and reverse osmosis membrane), it should be free of kinks and should not be in the way of items you have stored down there. – Check the manifold housing for moisture and again look under it on the base of the cabinet. You should not see water around, or underneath the housing. Follow the line from the housing up to the RO faucet and to the pressurized storage tank. Look for kinks and stored items that may get caught on the lines – be sure the lines are dry. Check around and under the storage tank for signs of water. If it has been more than a year since your last filter change, now is a good time to set that up with us. When the technician is there he will check over your system thoroughly, but make sure you point out any problems you have noticed or concerns you may have.
All this should take no more than 10 or 20 minutes of your time but it may save you both time and money in the long run. If you see water, signs of water or corrosion on or around your Culligan equipment give us a call. Water will, in time, erode everything and leaks never fix themselves. Your Culligan equipment is designed and tested to last a long time but it does require regular maintenance and occasional repair. So take a few minutes to check over your systems and see that everything is in order. If you have any questions or concerns give us a call, we are here to help
