Water From My Reverse Osmosis System Seem Cloudy or Milky, Why?

Max Water |

Why does the water from my Reverse Osmosis system appear cloudy or milky?

Typically, this cloudiness is the result of trapped air within the RO system. However, it should not impact the quality of your water. The cloudiness should dissipate within a minute after the water settles in a glass. This is a common occurrence when you install a new RO system or change the filters. You can release the trapped air from your RO system by emptying the tank 1 to 2 times or by allowing the RO system to produce a humming noise. To release the air, please refer to the instructions provided in your system manual (see below).

To eliminate the air bubbles, please follow the steps below:
Step 1:

Close the valve on the tank.

Step 2:

Lean the RO system to the right and place an object under the third filter housing to keep the RO system tilted. This will help dislodge the trapped air from the Check Valve.

Step 3:

Turn on the RO spigot and let the pure water flow through the spigot for approximately 1 minute. This will force the air to escape directly through the spigot, bypassing the tank.

Step 4:

Turn off the spigot and wait for about 10 seconds. Repeat step 3 around 3 to 4 times.
