How to install a booster pump

Installing a booster pump in a water purifier can be a simple process if done correctly. Here’s how to do it:

1. Gather the Required Tools

Before you start the installation process, ensure you have all the necessary tools. You’ll need a wrench (adjustable), Teflon tape, tubing cutter, and a booster pump.

2. Turn off the Water Supply

Before beginning the installation process, you need to turn off the water supply. You can do this by going to the main water supply valve and shutting it off. It is essential to make sure the water supply is off before removing any pipes or fittings.

3. Locate the RO System

The reverse osmosis (RO) system in your water purifier is responsible for removing contaminants from your water. Most RO systems come with a storage tank, and you need to locate it before starting the installation process. You should also be able to find the water supply line on the RO system.

4. Install the T-fitting

Take the T-fitting and screw it onto the RO system’s water supply line. The T-fitting should be fitted snugly but not too tight. It is essential to use Teflon tape on the threads to prevent leaks.

5. Add Tubing

Cut the necessary length of tubing using a tubing cutter and insert it into the T-fitting’s third opening. The tubing should be fitted tightly, but not too tight to prevent leaks.

6. Attach the Booster Pump

Take your booster pump and attach it to the tubing that you just inserted into the T-fitting. Make sure you secure the connection using a wrench. Tighten the connection but not too hard to avoid damaging the fitting.

7. Turn on the Water Supply

After all the connections are made, turn on the water supply slowly. Check for leaks before turning the water supply on fully. If there are any leaking areas, tighten the connections and check for leaks again.

8. Test the Booster Pump

Turn on your RO system and check to ensure the booster pump is working correctly. You should also check the water flow rate, which should be higher than before you installed the booster pump.

9. Complete the Installation

If everything is working correctly, you can install the storage tank and turn on the RO system.
