my reverse osmosis system is not drawing out of the tank. The tank seems to have water in it. i pulled the hose off the filter end and was able to suck water out. fresh water is at the green hose the other hose going to the faucet i can blow air out of. i son't know where to go from here
First thing to do here is put an air pressure gauge on the tank and check the pressure. Must be 9-12 PSI. Start with that and let me know.

tryed a tire guage nothing, pressed the needle valve in no air came out. can a tire oump put that pressure in and what type guage would measure that little pressure?
That is the reason you are not getting any water. You will need to use a good tire pump or take it out and take it to an air station to pressure it with 10-12 PSI. A good tire gauge will read this pressure. Get one with a dial on it so you can actually see the numbers.
