    If the filter wasn`t already in the housing it needs to be fitted this way.


    Tap Water in from left (if membrane is fitted as below)

    then 2 outs on the right RO water and waste.


    once you have that you can mount it any way you like to make it easiest for yourself...

    So it doesn't matter if the waste outlet was higher than the pure outlet and vice versa? ie, it can be twisted round?

    horizontal - vertical how ever you like. water will flow out under pressure any way.

    is the filter fitted as shown above?

    there is rubber at one end of the membrane this is the inlet side, the other end is open. might be that. if you have a picture of feeds in and out might be able to help.

    right the RO housing is a cylinder, two round ends and a tube...

    on the left side of the tube one inlet (water in).

    on the right side of the tube one outlet (waste with valve on it) closed is produce - open is flush.

    on the right side round end one outlet RO water.

    The membrane has to be fitted into the housing the right way for this to work though..

    Sounds like you have the tap on the RO outlet.

    Put the tap onto the waste water hose and let water come out of the round end (RO production) freely.
