Danny when you flush the unit be VERY sure there is no chlorine in the tank water as it will kill the membrane. We have always used a charcoal filter in our fresh water flush line to keep chlorine out of it. We back flush about every 3 or 4 weeks and that seems to work well.

Hi Danny,
I've just been flushing passively, but thought I might try turning the unit on and leaving the pressure low to facilitate the process.

Hi all, to those of you who are flushing the watermaker with fresh water regularly and avoiding pickling and cleaning with chemicals. When you flush with the fresh water, do you do this under pressure and put the fresh water through the membranes, or do you run the fresh water through passively with the unit off, or some other way?
