Old RO system needs help


I have an older Aqua pure RO system that is not functioning and found this site in hopes of help. I have changed the pre-filter and the 2 post filters and and also the membrane. I have water press. intering the system and none exiting. I can't find my instuction sheet and was hoping someone may be able to tell me what model # this 20yr old system is. I'm sure I have the tubing right but would like to see a diagram to be sure. Could it be that reg. on top of unit?

Thanks all,


Oakfall

Old RO system needs help


I can't find a model # anywhere. It has the 3 filter housings with the membrane on top going to a white plastic storage tank. I've changed the filters and even the faucet and no go. The only thing left(unless I screwed up) is that juction on top of filter housing. Some kind of a mixing regulator? bought the unit at Graingers years ago. Will take photo soon.

Thanks so much, Oakfall

There is an auto shut off valve, two on one side and one on the other.
There should be some arrows on there some place showing which way the flow should go.
