Hi Guys,

 

I always forget to flush the RO. Any suggestion on how to set this up to auto flush or where I can buy a window cleaning specific solenoid?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

Noel

I know Grippatanks v3 controller has auto flush capabilities, as I’m having it installed this month.  Not sure if you need anything else, but you could give them a ring and find out 👍

Thanks Skywalker. The Controller is well expensive. Im going to fit a solenoid and use in conjunction with a plug timer.  Much much cheaper and will do the job!

Not being funny why do you want an auto flush ? I personally wouldn’t want one manual if far superior , I have friends who have the latest ionic system set ups with auto flush and it waists is much water you wouldn’t believe it ,stick to the manual far better .

I’m terrible at forgetting I’ve left it on flush!!!! I waste far more water than I would if I had auto flush. It’s pretty simple to set up - even with a booster. You just need a solenoid and a timer as the OP suggests. I was going with this timer as you can adjust the time period it operates once it’s energised. I’ve opted for a custom version from grippatank that will monitor every possible thing that’s necessary - to me anyway (TDS, water temperature to active webasto frost circuit, auto flush, filter changes, overall water meter, remote control pump, booster pump control). Lazy you say - nope, turn it on, turn the tap on, BOOM!!! No more wasted water and I don’t have to worry about the TDS creeping up as it will shut off when it reaches a set level. I have better things to do with my time than rush about when I get home making sure the tank is filling up as it should and the membrane is flushed regularly.

I got mine from Lee Martian at Blade Right and its been fantastic. Just set it up and forget about it. I Can't imagine going back to doing everything manually.

My membranes have not lasted very long despite regular change of the filters.

I have been advised to flush my ro for 10 minutes after every 60min of production, hence looking for auto flush. Prevents knackering to membrane.

Ok , seams strange we work all over the country with TDS of over 450 in some locations and find an ro membrane lasts at least 7 years , are you using decent pre filters and water softener?? This will help no end .

 Maybe unfortunate and be in a heavy chlorine dose area? My waters terrible high tds, 530, but I cant taste chlorine in it at all. Some other places ive drank the tap water and it tastes more chlorine than water 🤢 Just an idea.
