    You need to turn the valve at least half turn to create back pressure. Or you could have inserted your membrane wrong way round. The seal needs to be then end of the inlet.

    the company i brought it from fitted it. they said they tested it also. i have it strapped to a trolley in a vertical position with the waste and pure outlets at bottom, is this ok or does it need to be waste and pure at top, or not vertical at all.

    Okay thought you had replaced the membrane, which company did you buy it from as may be a high pressure membrane.
