Plumbers .... R/O D/I units I need some help



If anyone can get me some information regarding this subject please let me know


I recently installed a Reverse Osmosis / D/I unit in my house, the unit is one peice 6 stage filtration with 5 cartridges in total.

Install

One hose into the faucet sink which returns to the unit. A red / blue wire (one which returns as good water / one that is waste). I ensured that all the wires are in the correct places and all the filter cartridges have been tightly installed.

I have this unit connected for the sole purpose of using it with my salt water aquarium. So I do not need it to be used with other sinks and such in the house.

Now the question I have, I have noticed that if someone uses another faucet in the house or the shower I can see the return hose shake , I also hear a hissing sound coming from the unit.

I do not want to cause any damage with the piping in my house, so any information will help.

PS. I am not using any type of pressure valves or electronically controlled units, its very simple as it is only used to store water in a large container (75 gallons).

Thanks guys i really appreciate it.

Hey I have an RO tank as well but mine is totally different. I just hook mine up to the tap and let the filtered water drip in to a bucket... Not as complicated as yours.

I"m just posting in here because its nice to know that I have another saltwater tank hobbiest on max. I have a 55 gallon which I have had setup for about a year. How big is your tank?

I have a PureFLo II I believe its a 3 stage .. I can't recall exactly what I paid for it but I think anywhere from $260-$300. I use to run just tap water in my tank and man was that a big mistake! I had purple slime everywhere!

I am going to snap some pics of my setup and post them.. you fellas got any pics?

Looks like its running great now ! I got a pressure valve (a friend of mine took a look at it) now it runs silent

Im running a 150 gallon tank I have been running saltwater tanks for about .... 8 years approx now.

My unit is made by Kent (as a few people I spoke to had said they make great products.

haha when you stop lowballing me! Honestly, I just recently purchased front and rear tires so I will probably just end up keeping them on my car until I find 19's that I really like.

I'm obsessed with fish! I finally upgraded and just got a really nice 90 gallon setup. Wish I had good pictures but it will be bare for a while.
