The easiest way to do this folks is to go in at a 45-degree angle. Get the topside in first, then the bottom. This will make things much easier. Once youve remounted the unit, connect a UV light to the power supply. Again if your system does not contain a UV filter, skip this step.

Now Im going to walk you through the step-by-step instructions on how to perform the filling drain procedure this procedure may last anywhere from two to three hours. The bulk of the time is allowing the tank to fill draining the tank typically takes anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes each time. If you have a full tank of water, you can use the water to flush the filters provided it has sufficient air pressure.
First, close the easy adapter, also known as the feed water valve. Once closed slowly, open the tank valve. Flip-up the RO faucet, so it locks open and allow the water to flow out of the faucet until it comes to a complete stop. Once the water has come to a complete halt, slowly close the tank valve. Once settled, slowly open the feed water valve or easy adapter. Please be sure that the tank valve is closed at this time as you do not want loose carbon to make its way into the storage tank. Once youve opened the feed water valve, observe the trickle at the RO faucet.
Close the lever on the RO faucet after the trickle runs clear and allow the system to pressurize. When the system is fully pressurized, it will automatically shut off.

The next couple of steps are straightforward folks, so please dont overthink them. You simply want to fill and drain the storage tank twice. Lets begin.

Once settled, block open the reverse osmosis faucet and allow the water to flow until it comes to a complete stop. Folks, youll want to complete this step at least twice.
Please note some harmless fine air bubbles or grey-tinted water may be present as these things often accompany a new system installation, or each time filters are indeed changed. Air becomes trapped inside tiny carbon pores and is released over time, not gallons. The more you use the system, the sooner will dissipate. This is entirely normal. You can confirm that they are air bubbles and not sediment by pouring a glass in observing the bubbles clear from the bottom up.
After pouring a glass of water, allow a few seconds for the water to clear and enjoy. You opened the EZ feed water valve or angle stop valve very slowly as you always want to reintroduce water back into the system at a languid pace. Opening it rapidly can damage the system components such as the automatic shutoff valve or ASV.
So there you have it, you’ve completed annual filter change and fill and drain procedure.
