Install Your Reverse Osmosis Unit Easily
This video demonstrates how easy it is to install your Water2buy Reverse Osmosis System.
The water2buy reverse osmosis system removes the large majority of contaminants from your water leaving you with clean drinking water.
Turn off your mains water before installing your reverse osmosis system. Respect all local plumbing codes when installing this equipment.
The filters and housings are colour coded for easy install.
We recommend using a sanitiser every time you change the filters, sprayable sanitiser is available from the water2buy website but any food grade sanitiser will do.
Remove all the packaging from your filters before starting.
Start with filter 1, the Blue P-P sediment filter.
Place the filter inside the housing and position the O-ring as shown.
Repeat the process for filter 2, the Red G-A-C, Granular Activated Carbon filter
and filter 3, the Green C-T-O Carbon Block filter.
The Blue filter reduces particles
The Red filter removes chemicals, particularly organic chemicals
and The Green filter will eliminate any colour, taste or odour from your water.
Next attach the filter housings to the main unit.
Make sure to attach the housings in the correct order.
Tighten with the tool provided.
Make sure you don’t over-tighten as this will cause the O-rings to leak.
Next, attach the Pink filter 4, the inline filter.
Remove the cap from the end of the filter and connect the tubing to the filter.
The yellow label filter 5 is the Membrane
Remove the blue clip, disconnect the tubing and unscrew the cap.
Make sure the O-ring sits correctly in the cap.
Always insert the end of the membrane with the two black rings first.
The position of the collar around the membrane can vary depending on the model, it may be at either end of the membrane.
Push in the membrane firmly, and make sure it sits securely in place.
Failure to seat the membrane correctly will result in contaminated water.
Screw the cap back on and tighten with the tool.
Re-connect the tubing and the blue clips.
Drill a 12 mm hole where you would like the tap to be positioned.
Assemble the tap washers, Chrome top, black plastic spacer and then the black rubber spacer.
Place the tap into the hole.
Under your counter top place the black plastic spacer, the metal washer and then the black nut onto the tap stem and tighten.
Place the clear rubber seal on to the tap stem.
Cut a suitable length of tubing and insert the end into the connector, secure with a blue clip, push the other end of the connector directly onto the tap stem.
Secure with a blue clip.
Locate the faucet connection on the reverse osmosis unit, the faucet connection is color coded with blue text, remove the cap and connect the tubing from the tap
Secure with a blue clip.
To branch off your water you can either use the t-piece or the saddle valve provided. It’s not necessary to use both.
The saddle valve clamps onto your water pipe and pierces a hole with it’s self tapping screw.
If you are using the saddle valve and have plastic piping, it is recommended that you pre-drill a 2mm hole in the pipe as holes created by saddle valves in plastic piping tend to close over after time.
In this demonstration we’ll use the t-piece.
Unscrew the cold tap hose from the mains water pipe at the joint.
Connect the t-piece between the tap hose and the mains water joint.
Tighten with a wrench.
Connect a suitable length of tubing to the t-piece, screw on the nut and tighten with a wrench.
Locate the inlet water connection on the unit, colour coded red, remove the cap and connect the tubing
Secure with a blue clip.
To fit the waste connection, drill a 5mm hole in the waste pipe above the waste trap.
Place the seal sticker onto the pipe over the hole.
Attach the waste clamp and tighten with a screwdriver, make sure that the connection lines up with the drilled hole.
Connect a length of tubing to the waste clamp and secure with a blue clip.
Locate the waste connection on your unit, it’s colour coded in black text, remove the cap and connect the tubing from the waste clamp.
secure with a blue clip.
Remove the blue cap from the pressure tank and spray some disinfectant into the tank.
Make sure the black washer is on before screwing the valve. Tighten hand-tight.
Insert a suitable length of tubing into the valve and secure with a blue clip.
Locate the pressure tank connection on the unit colour coded in purple text, remove the cap and connect the tubing from the pressure tank, secure with a blue clip
Your unit is now fully connected, if you have a pumped unit you will need to connect the power supply.
When cutting the tubing lengths leave extra slack to make changing filters easier.
Turn on your mains water, open the t-piece valve or the saddle valve, then open the valve on your pressure tank.
Be sure to check for leaks on all connections.
Turn on your tap and let the water run for 5 minutes.
The tank will fill with water.
We recommend checking for leaks at regular intervals until you are satisfied that there are none.
Remember to keep your reverse osmosis unit in good condition by changing your 1-4 filters at least once per year. Membranes (filter 5) should be changed every two years.
