Reverse Osmosis Installation

Project Title

"A perfect fit" received a call from a couple that has had 8 different plumbers in a period of 6 months time. They have hired and fired half a dozen general contractors during their kitchen remodeling.

The main thing they were trying to accomplish with the water to this part of the home was water quality/purity, and for this they needed a Reverse Osmosis system. The owners had spoke to many plumbers on the proper way to install and maintain RO systems, and were very frustrated with the varying answers and lack of knowledge they encountered. They found my website and read the reviews and felt we would be a "perfect fit" as I have installed at least 100 RO's in my 35 years in the profession. After spending some time meeting with them and discussing various issues concerning RO systems, we decided to work together to get these folks great drinking water for their family. The home owners purchased the unit they were most comfortable with, and in the meantime I familiarized myself with the PDF files. We set a day and time for the installation.

As I was doing prep work under the sink I noticed the dishwasher was not protected from sewer waste entering the unit, the drain was not plumbed properly. I corrected the drain issue and then noticed the water supply to the dishwasher was tied into the cold water supply instead of the hot supply. The dishwasher had an integral booster heater to heat the water to 180 degrees but was being fed by cold water, making the heater work tremendously hard and was sure to fail prematurely. Obviously, I replumbed the water supply to the dishwasher with the proper hot water feed. Two serious issues solved for the homeowner before even beginning to install the RO. The installation of the RO was a textbook perfect job, the unit was a 5 filter system with U.V. lighting, holding tank, and side faucet.

There are so many components that the installations are always tight, but as the pictures show, we optimized our space and as well as providing a good deal of working area for the annual filter replacements and maintenance. I was very pleased with the end results as are my customers. They now have peace of mind because as always they have "A Perfect Fits" full 1 year guarantee .
