Installation is included with your subscription. The ideal spot for your new water purifier would be near an electrical outlet as it does require power. Also, its best to be in a room with available water in a kitchen for example. A water supply line (1/4″) would tap into your cold water valve under your sink and run out to the water purifier secured by clamps (or a cover). The water supply line can run up to 300ft so if we need it in another room, no problem. Also a drain line of the same size (1/4″) will also run along the supply line if reverse osmosis is used.
Commonly Used Installation Fittings
John Guest LLDPE Tubing, Black, 1/4 inch with Nylon Clamps.
You’ll see two of these lines ran when reverse osmosis is used. Otherwise one is used (for ultra-filtration). The line is ran between your sink and the water purifier. These lines are secured neatly with clips, or a cover could even be used (see very top picture above).
John Guest Angle Stop Valve
Allows for continued operation of your sink faucet, and a connection to the purifier with its own shut off valve.
Drain Saddle Clamp
Only used with reverse osmosis filter. This allows for draining of concentrate water, to remove TDS. Another filter re-adds the appropriate level of minerals, for great taste, hydration and Alkaline pH.
This setup involves mounting filters underneath your sink along with placing a pressurized water tank.
With under-sink set ups a small permeate pump (softball sized) may be used depending on your water pressure. This requires no electrical power and allows for better performance all around.
