Here’s how you do it
Converting your Black and White Countertop RO to Undersink
1. Install the faucet and inlet kits. When conversion is complete and you install the unit, you will plug the inlet tube into the black (left) housing and the faucet tube into the right (white).
2. Mount the shutoff valve in its clip on top of the RO membrane with the IN/OUT side of the valve facing the capped end of the membrane housing (the end that has only one tube).
3. Remove the tube from the fitting on the membrane cap and install it into the IN port of the shutoff valve. Run a new tube from the OUT port to the recently vacated fitting in the membrane housing cap.
4. On the other end of the membrane, remove the tube from the Permeate fitting (the one that isn’t the drain) and replace it with a short tube that connects it to the nearest TANK port of the shutoff valve. Insert a check valve into the new tube between the membrane and the shutoff valve with the arrow pointing toward the shutoff valve.
5. Loop the tube you removed from the Permeate port of the membrane back and insert it into the remaining empty port of the shutoff valve. (The other end remains connected to the back port of the white postfilter housing.) At any convenient place in this tube, insert the tee to connect the tank to the unit.
6. Install the shutoff valve onto the top of the storage tank, then use a single tube to connect the tank valve to the tee that you installed in step 5.
7. Install the drain saddle following instructions in the kit and connect the existing RO drain tube to the fitting in the drain saddle. Install the remaining check valve between the drain line flow restrictor and the drain saddle with the arrow pointing toward the drain saddle.
