The GE Merlin Reverse Osmosis Flush Kit 1268260 allows installers to lessen TDS creep, resulting in better quality water when the system is used after periods of inactivity. It combines quality and functionality with durability for a lifetime of customer satisfaction.
The flush kit includes an RO storage tank, a base to hold the tank upright, tubing, and a tank valve fitting. The tubing and tank are connected to the light blue 1/4-inch elbow connections. A series of check valves within the unit's manifold automatically redirects product water into the tank before shut-down. The pressurized tank then forces the product water across the membranes, flushing the high TDS concentrate water to drain. The system flush occurs after each demand for product water. For proper operation, the tank should hold an air precharge of 8 to 10 psi.
The flush kit is recommended for applications where a spike of TDS at system start-up is not desirable. It is a great way to maintain a high water quality.
