Auto Shut Off

Hi, I bought the SPECTRA PURE MAXCAP 2:1 MANUAL FLUSH 90 GPD RO/DI SYSTEM last week and just got it installed and running. I had a couple of questions regarding this system that I'm hoping someone can answer.

1) I split the washer supply line to give this RO a water source. I noticed while doing the drain that the supply side is 60 PSI until the washer comes on at which point the supply pressure drops to around 20ish. Is that going to be a problem going forward? It's a front loader so it would only drop pressure for a short while but I want to make sure I'm not going to damage this due to fluctuations in supply pressure.

2) I have a float shut off but that doesn't really work for me. I have canisters that I fill and store elsewhere (this is located in the washroom). Is there an alternative that would work with filling gas can style canisters, or am I doomed to checking throughout the day whether or not it's overflowing?

Good day Icewing,

1) You will not damage the unit in any way, when the washer is being used and pressure drops then the system will just not produce much water. When the washer gets turned off the unit will go back to normal operation.

2) One thing you can do is put the gas canister in the sink that way if it over flows you have protection and it'll all go down the sink.
You could measure your flow rate and calculate how long it takes to make 5 gallons (or the size of the canister), set an alarm on your phone and come back to it before its filled up as well!

Hope this helps,

Daniel

How does the float shutoff work?

Like a "toilet bowl float".

Here's a manual for installing one:
