Dessalator Water Maker Problem?

When I turn the lever on the side of the filter mount to flush no flushing water goes through the systems. When I start the water maker immediately a fitting in the low pressure circuit blows of..... for example the soft plastic screw in fitting that holds the electrodes for the produced water quality sensor.

Before I start pulling things apart does anyone know what might be wrong?

Re: Dessalator Water Maker Problem?

Sounds to me you don't have any idea of how to operate your R/O unit. Detailed instructions are available on the web so I won't write them all out here, but the process for most is pretty generic, therefore they should be easy to find.
