    RO unit install

    Hi guys

    After some failed attempts at getting my tank right, I have purchased a RO unit to make my water become stable. The only problem I have is... I live in an apartment and I am not to sure my landlord will appreciate me making holes in his pipes.

    Is there any methos to install these things so that I dont need to make a hole in the pipes?

    Thanks

    Shel

    Hey Shel,

    I'm using a faucet adapter. Basicly connects the unit to the faucet and it is a totaly plug and play solution. I found the item by searching in my Yellow pages for water purification. I was able to find a dealer that sells ro/di units and he had an adapter for 10$. Here's what it looks like

    just look for standard faucet adapter. It is easy to install and works great. I was in the same situation as you and this solution has worked out great for me.

    Hope it helps,

    Steph
