    Does anyone know what this part is?
    I’m working on putting together the mixing station bit by bit and found these; forgot what the black box is for, the other piece is a pressure switch which I have the power supply for.

    Never seen that before. Auto flush?

    Did you ever use that tubing to carry saltwater into a calcium reactor and it's some kind of pump?

    I think Vincent’s right; I forgot what it’s for but it might be an auto flush valve.
    I opened it and looked like a pump but it doesn’t make any sound when plugged in.
    I think is a Spectrapure unit.
    The white tubing is on the pressure switch, just old RO tubing. I’ll search Spectrapure’s site for schematics on it.

    If it’s like my old Air, Water Ice Typhoon III and has 4 ports, it’s a pressure cut-off so that your membrane doesn’t stay pressurized while the unit is not processing water.

    ASOV valve, right in the middle?

    Though I just realized it appears to have power. Pressure booster?

    I have to look for the instructions, I may have them in a bin labeled RODI Filters; these ones were in a box labeled RO Parts.

    Only thing I can think is auto flush.
