    Cut the pipe with a sharp blade. Do not use side cutters or scissors. Make sure the cut is strait.

    make sure there are no deep scratches along the pipe at the end. Give the pipe a good tug to make sure it has seated.

    I must be honest we had plenty of problems with our R.o unit - leaks, membranes not lasting and even a vertical filter case bursting off the thread.

    Our water board told me the pressure was 4.5 - 5 bar.( which was fine ) , until Marco suggested getting a plumber to do a pressure test...
    I wasn't chuffed , until the plumber said the pressure was 8 bar and would clime another .5 at night when there's less usage.

    He put on a pressure regulator and guage, - since then the R.O has been producing constant water of a high quality without indecent.

    Short and sweet of my story - Have a plumber do a pressure test and set the daytime working pressure @ about 3.8 Bar and it will increase a bit at night if it runs permanently as ours does.

    Good luck.

    I had a pipe twist on me, it was a rather short piece that started to drip - think its because of the tension and the pipe not being fully straight!

    Hey Marco, havent fully installed the unit, still running as a portable! Thanx for all the assistance and letting me take up some of your family time!
