    Hi,

    Got a dd ro unit which lately keeps dripping. It's connected to a copper pipe and guessing that is where it doesn't close properly. Anyone have an idea how to fix?

    of what the drip? lol it drips out the out the clean water pipe. so basically as if the unit was not turned off. it's not dripping at any connections. if i put the setting to flush the unit i get quiet a strong flow coming out even though the tap is closed.

    don't have pic of the actual unit but it's the below items.

    Momo is the drip coming from the brass tap bit or the aluminum clamp or the fitting where the plastic pipe fits in?

    No there is no drip from any of the fittings. there is just a constant drip from the clean water pipe (filled a 25l bucket in 2 days). or if in flush setting from the waste pipe. it seems almost like the tap doesn't close properly.

    OK so the brass tap on the fitting does not shut off the water supply to the RO unit.

    Never had that issue personally. Will enquire for you and get a fix.
