RO Installation Question

Posted by revbrewm (My Page) on

I am installing a Reverse Osmosis water system in my son's house. The filters are in the basement and the poly tubing makes a long run along the top of the wall. What is the best way to neatly install the tubing? Are there brackets made that allow for a clean installation? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

RE: RO Installation Question

First and most important when installing an RO... do not use a saddle valve for the water supply. Use a proper T or an angle stop with a fitting for an extra water line.

Second, liberal use of these makes servicing an RO really easy... especially in an emergency

Third, you can use readily available cable clamps (like for DirecTV or the cable guy uses) for the PE tubing

There are these...

and these...

And the old standby available at any hardware store...
