A Reverse Osmosis system is a high-end 3 to 5 stage filtration unit that uses advanced technologies for filtration to provide the best range of pure and high-quality water. The water comes out to be purified from every kind of contaminant and is also absolutely safe for consumption. Now, if you’re using a reverse osmosis system filter, you might be aware of the fact that changing the filter cartridges can be pretty taxing. Although, the entire idea of changing filters is easy, things can turn out to be tad more difficult if you are opting to change filters for the first time. So, in order to help you out, we’ve come up with a list that provides some easy tips for changing filter cartridges in a reverse osmosis system. Check this out.
How frequently should you change the filter cartridges?
We would advise you to change the filter cartridges of your RO system once in every six to nine months. At the same time, you should also ensure that the RO membrane is changed in once in every two months. The regular Reverse Osmosis system filters for domestic use are crafted in such a manner that the repair and maintenance is easy and less taxing. Even a lay person can get things sorted and handle the regular tasks of maintenance. Most of the reverse osmosis filtration systems come with the ‘plug and play’ technology where you do not need to use any high-end tools for removing the filter tanks and then putting them back. If you want to change the filter cartridges of your RO system, simply go for new filter cartridges according to your old cartridge’s model number.
How to change the filter cartridges?
- Begin by turning off the external water supply of your RO system.
- Right after that, you will have to release the filtration unit’s pressure by slowly opening the end faucet and allowing it to stand for a couple of minutes.
- You will now have to open the filter tanks and rotate them in a proper, counterclockwise manner. You can always use your hands to do this. However, in case the filters are extremely tight, use the filter switch.
- After this, take the old filter cartridges and carefully slide them out. Make sure the filter tanks are in an upright position as they contain water.
- Sanitize the filter tanks as and when it is necessary. Make sure that you do the sanitization at least once in two years.
- Now, carefully insert the new cartridges and make sure that they are not contaminated by your hands.
- After this, while keeping the RO membrane filter tank intact; slowly take out all other filter tanks following the same procedure and by inserting new cartridges.
- Use the screw to slowly screw back your old tanks in the filtration system. Make sure to rotate them in a counter clockwise direction this time.
- Now, slowly test the running water. Do not drink the first water that comes out from your filter.
Well, as you follow these procedures, you can easily change the filter cartridges of your reverse osmosis system. Simply browse through these guidelines and implement them to make your installations, quicker, better and tad more effective. Good luck!
