And there's a new RO unit in the family


Recommended Posts

What did I do this holidays?  I bought a new RO unit on black Friday, and installed it on new years weekend!

I bought my Kent Hi-S ~50gpd unit some time in the 90's, and it's been in constant use ever since.  I've replaced the membrane and cartridges multiple times, broke a cylinder from overtightening, and added an RO booster buddie (great addition, highly recommended).  Punch line, I've gotten my monies worth out of this unit.

But, my system is not bigger, would be nice to have more capacity, and also be nice to produce less waste water.   (got some Large water bills last summer, which in fairness included watering the lawn/etc)

So black Friday, I ordered a new fully automated, integrated, all the bells and whistles unit.  Finished installation yesterday!

  • SpectraPure® Mega MaxCap® Performance Plus™ 1:1 RO/DI System

 

There was one interesting twist with this unit.  It includes a dedicated 3/8" RO flush line (blue hose dangling), that does the flush with RO water, not incoming water.   This is new to me.

In with the new!

Nice unit!   

Thanks. 

What you can't see is the high water and "low enough to start re-making RO" water sensors that came with it too.   Instructions were to drill holes in side of RO tank, but I don't like holes.  So built a PVC structure that hangs down Inside the tank to hold the sensors.   Nice-n-clean, and not extra holes in the tank.  :)
