Reverse Osmosis System Flush Valve Kit Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

There are many filtration systems you can choose for your aquarium, and reverse osmosis is one of them. In reverse osmosis, a membrane acts as a filter, trapping in unwanted ions and molecules from different chemicals present in the water. Reverse osmosis is an effective system that is known to effectively cleanse the water.

However, reverse osmosis only works well when the membrane is kept clean. This can be done if the membrane is consistently flushed out. The Reverse Osmosis System Flush Valve Kit from Pet Store is used for that purpose.

The valve should be placed between the membrane's debris port and the system's flow restrictor. The result is a flow of water strong and high enough to wash away the collected dirt and salt from the membrane. Other unwanted particles are also washed out in the process, from the inside of the membrane and from its surface.

Flushing is recommended to be performed right before shutting down the reverse osmosis filter system. This is done when the valve is opened for around half a minute and the water source turned off.

The Reverse Osmosis System Flush Valve Kit is small but it sure does a lot in keeping your aquarium a healthy environment. A little enhancement goes a long way in effective filtration.

Flush Valve Kit for systems with 1/4" waste water tubing.

Specifications

Significantly enhanced the life of RO membranes and reduces membrane cleaning requirements. This flush valve kit when placed between the membrane reject port and the flow restrictor provides a high flow bypass to purge concentrated brine from the membrane housing and rapidly flush any particulate from the membrane surface. The flushing is best done just before the RO system is shut down by opening the FVK valve for 15–30 seconds and then turning the feed water source off.

RO Flush Valve Kit

by
Reviewers Rating Great


Posted: 12/6/2013 from GLADWIN, MI UNITED STATES
4.0 5
Experience Level: Expert


Comments: Very easy to install. The installation instructions are a bit misleading. They instruct you to use the flow restrictor from the RO diaphragm, but the kit comes with its own restrictor built in. You still must remove the restrictor from the diaphragm. The restrictor from my RO diaphragm was better quality than the kit restrictor, so I used my RO restrictor.

Needs Redesign

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: Good quality but has a major flaw. I use a RO that has a line restrictor that has to be placed in the flush valve assembly. The line restrictor is longer than the tube on the flush valve so the flush valve will not work unless I replace all the tubing. Since I have to do that, I could have just purchased the 2 connectors and the valve and built my own flush valve assembly. They should make it long enough to fit the majority of all RO's.

Comments: If you’re like me and go the extra mile to ensure the highest quality of water then this is the last item in the quest. I like being able to know that I am doing my best to prolong the life of my filter cartridge by being able to flush it. This was so simple to install.
