So I just got the Buddy Ro Di unit and it’s totally setup but I have some questions about the pressure of my faucet which it’s hooked up to. I’m pretty sure my water pressure is fairly high when I turn on my faucet it’s like a waterfall. Do I need to get a pressure gauge to see how much pressure I need from my faucet and adjust from there? So if my psi is like 60-70 at full faucet speed I would need to adjust it down to 50 psi using a gauge to see what it’s at?

From what you explain it sounds like you have plenty for a water buddy. To hi psi isn’t a problem until 80-90 psi so no worries use it

Oh sweet thanks for the quick response and I actually just talked to one of my family members and it looks like we have about 50-55 psi I guess it looked like more to me!

On one side of membrane housing there is one tube and on the other there is two.
The side with one hole Is water going in. On the other side the one in center is product water going to di resin, the one that is a lil offset is waste.

Ok yeah this for sure helps but as I’m comparing this to mine right now it looks the same besides me not having the resin bed on yet cause I’m trying to flush the carbon does anything look wrongly attached on mine compared to this one?

From what I know of standard ro units it goes from faucet through sediment, carbon then into the acre on cap side of membrane. The other side of membrane has two hoses. One for product and one for waste. Not sure your buddy is dif
