I have a GE under counter RO system that I can't seem to get more than
a cup of water out of per day. (This is after a year of regular use
and regular filter changes). After taking the unit apart I found that
the water fills up in the first filter cup and goes into the membrane
but doesn't pass through to fill up the 2nd filter cup. I assumed my
membrane was clogged but I don't know how to tell. I've read postings
that say under the counter RO membranes should never clog.
I took the membrane out and tried it and of course the water went
right through. Before I spend $70 on a new membrane I'm trying to
determine if that is the problem. Do you know a way I could test the
membrane ? There does seem to be some rust buildup in it but nothing
I also noticed that my little storage tank had very little air
pressure. Should I be putting it back up to the 100PSI that is shows
on the side of the tank ?
Thanks for any help you can provide me.
