Install the system in compliance with all local plumbing codes. A sediment pre-filter may be used, but is not required, especially with municipal water supplies. Most systems include a Bypass-Valve. Install it with the Aquatien Water System. It will make installation easier and allow isolation and diagnostics of the system if ever required.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the Aquatien Water System is installed in a metal (conducive) plumbing system (copper or galvanized metal used as a ground), the plastic components of the system will interrupt the continuity of the plumbing system. If this is the case, we recommend bridging the in and out metallic pipe which will re-establish the contiguous conductive nature of the plumbing system. This is the standard practice used by professional installers
To ensure optimal performance of your Aquatien Water System(s), please be sure to operate the system(s)under the following conditions:
If the given water supply requires additional treatment steps, the Aquatien Water System should be the final treatment step. In essence, the Aquatien Water Systems’ efficiency and longevity are optimized the cleaner the water supply is to the system
