Common Water Purifier Problems and Solutions

Water purifiers are an easy way to get clean drinking water for your family. Safe and clean water to drink and cook is one of the essential things in life. Good quality RO water purifiers can easily last more than ten years. While you enjoy the benefits of safe drinking water, it’s equally important to maintain the water purifier. After a while, the water purifier may have problems, such as unusual tastes and smells, noisy faucets, leakage, and slow water output.

If your RO service is due, download the “OneDios” app and generate an RO service request in a few clicks. You can also buy the extended warranty and AMCs for all RO brands like KentBlue StarHavells AO SMITH RO, LIVPURE RO, AQUA FRESH RO, EUREKA FORBES RO, etc.

To make it convenient to locate the issue and have it serviced, we are going to list five common water purifier problems:

Unusual Taste or Foul Smell

If you feel there is a change in the taste or smell while drinking RO filtered water, then there’s a problem. It could be because a biofilm (layer of organic and inorganic material) has accumulated in one or more parts of the purifier, resulting in rising levels of contaminants in the water. The main reasons are worn-out membranes and depleted filters. If you replace the membranes and the filters, the water will taste good again. To get the filters and membranes replaced, download the OneDios app now. OneDios also helps you to keep track of your previous RO service details, next RO service due date and parts replaced. 

If water has a metallic taste, it may have dissolved a high amount of sulfate, chloride, and bicarbonates from the copper tubing in the RO purifiers. If the water from your purifier tastes saltier than usual, you should call a professional for a maintenance check and get the purifier cleaned. You can also download the OneDios app for RO service or an extended warranty or find out about AMC with just one click.

Slow Water Flow

If the RO purifier takes an abnormally long time to fill the storage tank, then there is a problem with the pressure and filters of water. The water purifier operates correctly between 40 and 60 PSI (pounds per square inch) pressure. The flowing speed will be affected if the water pressure is lower than this. There won’t be any pressure if the air bladder in the storage tank is leaking. Clogged water filter cartridges also decrease the velocity of the water. For a better flow of water, cartilage replacement is required every six months. Download the OneDios app and book your RO service in a few seconds to replace cartilage and service your RO purifier.

Unusual Faucet Noises

The purifier makes noises even after replacing filters and membranes; the noises must be due to the air being forced out of the system. Another factor could be a sudden change in the system’s water pressure. If the noises and vibrations persist after some time, get in touch with a professional and ask them to replace the water purifier’s tubes.

Water Leakage

Water leakage is one of the most common RO purifier problems. The purifier’s faucet frequently leaks when a part does not fit properly. In this situation, the part that doesn’t fit correctly needs to be replaced or fixed, or you can try to tighten it yourself.

A loosely fitting O Ring (A soft rubber that prevents leakage in purifiers) might be at fault if the leakage is in the purifier or membrane. Call a professional to change or fix the parts. To fix leakages in the RO water purifier, contact OneDios and schedule a visit from the experts here.

Water Purifier is not working

The power supply cable must be faulty if you’ve switched on your water purifier, but no LED light or sound comes from the unit.

Then, you need to call a professional to check your RO purifier. Sometimes, it so happens that the main water supply valve is shut. If it is off, turn it on and check if the purifier is working. You must check the water pressure to see if the valve is open and RO isn’t working. Most RO purifiers don’t work if the water pressure is extremely low.
