I've installed the system and emptied the tank thrice. I still hear water running into the drain. Is it normal for water to be running through the system even when the tank is full ?

If not, how do I fix it ?

Answer: 
Yes, the runoff is to be expected. According to sources this unit requires about 40 gallons of water to make 9.5 gallons a day. I decided not to install this system in my house because of this reason & I have to use their faucet. If I were going to install it, I would put it in the basement or some area away from the kitchen where I would not have to listen to it run all of the time.

Water is pre-filtered though an activated carbon filter (the prefilter) and introduced to the reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. Reverse osmosis membrane is a roll of material which looks like paper. I do not know what it is exactly made of but it looks like a cellulose based material (special kind of paper). The membrane has very tiny holes in it which allow only water molecules to pass through. Any impurities larger than the size of a water molecule are left behind and drained out as reject water.
The filtered water is stored in a storage tank. When you open the faucet, water from the storage tank flows through the post filter (another activated carbon filter) and out of the faucet. Read Less

The RO system uses sophisticated filters and membrane to take impurities out of the water. It functions similar to the liver in the human body. The larger and more complex systems are used in San Diego for example, to desalinate their drinking water. It does not use chemicals.

We have replaced the pre and post filter twice, the membrane, auto shut off valve. I just did another test to rule something out: I let it fill up for an hour and turned the water off, the spicket on, and only a half cup of water was total.. Could it be the tank? we have already replaced the unit once due to some other issue 3 years ago, this is getting annoying. Please any help is appreciated.

visit http://reverseosmosischemicals.com/ it is possible that you are clogging Ro membrane prematurely. they make cleaning solvents for this. what i like to do is back flush the ro filter under low pressure for a few minutes once a year when i change the cartridges. you can also have your water tested by places that sell water softeners, they will tell you if you have a high mineral content. sometimes home well will have sediment that builds up and this can also clog them early. if you are in a area of hard water, or high iron, you can change your pre filters with a different type to better suit your needs. Aquarium stores have a water softening pillow, used for fish tanks, (same resin that is used in water softeners) and you can place one of these in your pre filter to aid in hard water, and is reusable by soaking in salt water. your holding tank may be under pressure, where it can't fill up, there is a valve, like a bicycle tire on the tank to remove some of its back pressure (just don't do too much, you need the back pressure of the tank to shut the unit off when tank is full. i would first try back washing your filter - -swap the in and out of the ro membrane, and turn the water on very little - -let it run a bit. then place back in its original position and see if you get more flow Read Less

Answer: 
The tank my have a leak in the internal bladder. Check the air pressure(valve on side of tank). It should be around 8-10 psi to function properly. If the bladder has ruptured the tank will have to be replaced. Also, the minimum operating pressure on the water flow from the feed pipe into the filter is 50 psi. If it falls too low the unit will not function. Check your home's water pressure. HTH

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 248 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I owned this same system in a previous home. For more than 15 years this same GE system did an excellent job cleaning up our well water after a water softener system did it's job with iron and taste Our chief concern was well water with a high salt content, a common problem in communities around the Chesapeake Bay - we're on the Virginia side then and now. There was no doubt in our new residence how we would deal with well water, which is better this time, but still high in salt. I strongly recommend this under the sink system. It also gets good life (better than the material says) from all three filters in the system. (Reverse Osmosis, Model GXRM10RBL by G E). CJ June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not so happy There is 4 to 1 waste with this RO system. If you have well water this system could work for you. City water in AZ is expensive and to waste 4 gals of water to make 1 does not make sense. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dependable System This unit is identical to first one I ever owned and installed in my home. Since then I've tried a cheaper system because the replacement filters were less expensive. That was a mistake because they needed changing so much more often that they ended up being more expensive. I also tried a more expensive unit from a plumbing supply company thinking it would perform better, but the smaller storage tank and more expensive replacement filters made me switch back to this system. One drawback of this system is that the pre- and post-filters are harder to change because they don't just twist on and off, you have to open up the canister and change the internal cartridge, but that is the reason they last longer, work better, and in the long run are more economical. One thing that would make filter changes easier is a shut-off valve at the storage tank. This is a simple enough do-it-yourself add on, but it would be nice if the manufacturer included it with the system. That way you can just close the valve instead of having to drain the tank every time you change filters. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Design flaws make this one difficult to install. This system has to be installed near a water source. In our case that meant squeezing it into an existing cabinet side wall next to the sink. If you didn't have to install it like that, it would be far easier. Quite a bit of "take filters in and out" in such a cramped space isn't any fun either. The water is clean and clear so no problem there. However, the gurgling after a glass is filled goes on for quite awhile afterward. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tasting Water! We've had this system for about ten years and it produces great tasting filtered water. I now need to replace all three filters and unfortunately the tank too,as the bladder must be shot as there is minimal water pressure. I've considered purchasing a different unit but after research on other models I am sticking with this one! Instead of purchasing new filters and a new tank I am just going to purchase a new system (the cost is about the same). Anyhow we are pleased enough to stick with the same system. I will warn you that there is some plumbing effort to install it and changing the filters is also some effort- but the water tastes great- is the equivalent of bottled water- and our first system lasted ten years. I am by no means a plumber but have installed several faucets over the years, but not much more than that, You may want a plumber or handyman to install it and then change the filters yourself....Satisfied customer. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, no problems & Much better water and cheaper than bottled water. THis was the second one that I installed. Bought my first one 15 years ago and had to replace the tank (the internal bladder broke after all these years), so I just bought another new one. Plan to keep using this type of product forever. Bottled water is often just filtered tap water put in plastic bottles that may contaminate the water. And bottled water costs more than gasoline. So make your own very clean water. May 10, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by poor dispenser The unit is well designed but the faucet to dispense water has a close curve to the neck making it difficult to get a container under it easily. I substituted an other faucet to make it usable for me. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Undersink Modification Required After experiencing a overpressure in the waterline into the drainvalue within the sinkbase from the small black relief line to it and the larger black drain line that dumps into the main plumbing. Contacted customer service and was instruced to buy a newer model and seek a instore credit. My decision was to cut the smaller black felief tube to bypass the vent inside the base of the dispencer. I cut the large black drain tube from the base of the dispencer and then inserted the smaller relief tube into the larger drain tube. This bypassed the vent option at the base of the dispencer and drains direct. Overpressure leak solved and works great without thd expensive costs of loss and replacement. May 4, 2016
