My purified water is trickling into tank and waste water is going at gd flow is this normal
What's the waste to pure ratio?
I'm not sure how do I find that out I got total rubbish instructions and it wasn't for my 400gpd reverse osmosis system how long does it take u to fill tank mine is 300lite been filling 3 hour and not even a 3rd full
And have you got a TDS meter to check quality. You don't want to leave it running until your sure of your pure quality.
Also what is your mains pressure like. The guage on the front should tell you that. The higher the pressure the better the pure to waste ratio will be and the quicker your tank will fill. That's my experience anyway
Yes its 0 water pressure 25 not sure if gd or not its crazy seeing it just trickling out into tank that all the set up would be easy but be so stress full
As long as it produces enough for you to work with (350ltrs per day for one man minimum) I wouldn't worry too much Kyle. I certainly wouldn't worry unless you're on a water meter, in which case you want to get your waste to pure ratio as low as possible because you will notice it on your water bill.
If your water pressure is 25psi that is quite low you might want to consider a booster pump. These ROs will seldom produce water at a rapid rate and waste output almost always looks alarmingly fast by comparison to the pure rate.
To check your waste to pure ratio, get two measuring jugs and put the waste pipe in one and pure pipe in the other and time it for one minute. Then compare how much waste you have with pure. ie; 600ml waste and 200ml pure would = 3-1 waste to pure ratio etc.
I had the same problem with my ro system first then phoned up pure freedom and they advised me to add a bother pump and be great ever since.
As Marko says, as long as its purifying enough for you, that's all that matters. Mine is slow, but I leave it on overnight to fill my storage tank and don't bother with a booster pump
Kyle if u space at home I fill 1000L oil tank on blocks about 5 foot off the ground in the garage and transfer to van takes about 10 min with no pump
