A whole-house in-The Line water purifier removes sediment and contaminants from the home water supply.This type of water purifier is usually called the wholeThe water filter of the House, installed on the inner wall, access the main water pipe of the house before the water reaches any faucet, water heater or ice making machine in the home.It cannot replace the water softener of the well system.
Without a water filter, the build-up of contaminants will cover the interior of the home pipeline and have a negative impact on any aquatic productUse the performance of the device.Installation of water purifier can greatly extend the life of any waterUse the device.A typical whole.The household water purifier consists of three parts: Manifold, filter element assembly and filter element.
Most whole-Household water purifier-Style filter component.The filter slides into the tank.The tank is screwed to the bottom of the purifier manifold.The amount of contaminants removed depends directly on the type of filter used and the number of years of use.
Several filters of different grades can be provided;From the basic filter for removing rust and sediment only to the highest grade purifier filter for removing some bacteria and parasites.Before buying a wholeHousehold water purifier, compare the pipe size of your home with the port of the manifold.The port of the manifold must be at least the same size as the pipe.
3/4-most home useor 1-Inch water pipe.
Water purifiers with smaller ports will suppress water flow.A larger port simply requires a bushing or other reduction accessory.Board the wholeWhere are you installing the whole-house in-The Line water purifier depends on the layout of the home pipe and water heater.
Ideally, the water purifier will be connected to the home water supply between the main water valve of the building and the first branch or water pipeUse the device.The best place many homeowners find is the water pipe near the water heater.For future filter maintenance, the best location will be easy to reach.
Open the package for the filter component and check the system.Find the arrow on the manifold of the Assembly.The arrow indicates the direction in which the water flows through the system.
When planning the route of the water pipe from the main pipe to the installation location of the purifier, remember this arrow.Connect the mounting bracket template (if any) of the water purifier to the wall using masking tape.If there is no template for the purifier, hold down the whole-house in-Connect the mounting bracket of the water filter to the inner wall and track the screw holes of the mounting bracket on the wall.
Some purifiers have mounting holes on the manifold;Others have separate mounting brackets.Put the mounting bracket aside.Use the mark or template on the wall as the guide, drill the guide hole on the wall.If used, insert the appropriate anchor into the pilot hole.
Drywall-Anchors are required for cover and concrete block walls.Place the screw hole of the bracket on the guide hole or anchor.Connect the stand of the water purifier to the wall with proper screws.
Double check the pipe route to confirm that there is space for all pipes and fittings.Disconnect the power of the water heater and turn off the water supply.If the house uses a well pump, turn off the circuit breaker of the pump motor.
If the home is connected to the city water meter, turn off the main water valve.Open a hose at home and release the water pressure from the pipe.Remove a 5-to 6-The main pipe inch length between the first T-Install the pipe using the appropriate cutting tool and insert it inside the home.
Leave at Least 2 inch clean pipes on each side of the cut.Part 2 inch of the pipe sets aside enough space for the pipe fittings needed to connect the water filter.Attach a 90-Enter the degree elbow of the main water pipe of the family, keep the discharge port of the elbow facing the installation position of the water purifier.
From elbow to inner tube-The entrance of the line water purifier keeps the pipe close to the wall.The type and quantity of accessories and pipes required depends on the installation location of the purifier and the type of pipe used.If PVC or CPVC pipes and fittings are used, coat the fittings and pipes with primer first before applying PVC cement.
The primer softens the mating surface of the pipes and fittings, which helps cement bonding.If PEX or copper tubes and fittings are used, remove all debris and corrosion before making the connection.Many homeowners choose to use push-When using CPVC, PEX or copper pipe, on the pipe fittings.
A push-Torch and welding, glue and primer are not required on pipe fittings, and ring and clip tools are not required.Water purifier at the top of the arrow point to discharge.Connect the in-Line water purifier \\ discharge to both ends-inch-Long Tube connecting tee-fitting.
Try to arrange the discharge pipe so that it does not cross the inlet pipe and lean tightly against the wall.If the discharge pipe must pass through the feed pipe, use the fittings to bridge the surface of the feed pipe.Fix each tube to the wall with two tubesSling holes.
The belt can prevent the vibration of the pipe.As needed, place a strip every 4 feet of each long segment along the pipe.Lubricate the whole-house in-Line water purifier \\ Can O-Ring with water and foodsafe grease.
Put the water filter into the tank.
Hand tighten the jar to the shell of the water purifier and turn the jar clockwise.Slide the tank wrench (if applicable) over the end of the tank, turn the tank until the tank is tightened.Open the water supply system at home.Turn on the hot and cold side of each tap.
Turn on the tap until all the air in the pipe escapes.Check each pipe fitting for water leakage and repair as needed.Usually, the best way to solve the leak is to simply replace the leak accessories.
Band aid-Type patches do not perform well in the long term and almost always fail at worst.If the thread fitting is connected to the whole-The House inline water purifier is leaking, and the pipe is cut off from the thread fittings for about 1 inch.Remove the thread fitting from the water filter manifold and clean the thread sealant from the fitting and manifold.
Apply the thread sealing paste to the thread.Thread sealing paste is a foolproof way to protect and seal the thread of the pipe.Just fill the first third thread of the male accessory with paste.
Tighten the fittings with a wrench and reconnect the pipe with the coupling.Open the water and retest the system.Once the whole-Household water purifiers flush the air in the indoor pipe through leak testing.Turn on the faucet farthest from the water filter, which is usually a hose bib located outside.
Keep the tap on until the tap stops spitting air.It can take a few minutes.Repeat this at each tap and work in the whole directionHousehold water purifier.Typically, homeowners with some plumbing knowledge and skills can complete the entire installation process in less than three hours, in many cases less than an hour.
According to the maintenance instructions of the water purifier manufacturer, the domestic water supply will remain pollution-free.Normally this only needs to be replaced with the filter and O-Ring lubrication is performed every three to six months.Applying a thin layer of lubricant on each filter change will greatly extend O-ring\\\'s life.
Check O-before applying the lubricant-The ring of an area marked or severely deformed.O-replacement tankRings are available online.Some of the local hardware stores have a big ORing classification and will carry large O-rings needed.
Choose the O-Ring that exactly matches the size of your jar;Not the right size O-ring will leak.Loosen the stubborn jar with a filter wrench.The large opening end of the wrench slides through the end of the tank and is mounted in a groove near the manifold.
Catching the jar near the manifold limits the chance of damage
