COMPLETE INLET AND OUTLET PLUMBING
Measure, cut, and loosely assemble pipe and fittings
from the main water pipe to the inlet and outlet ports of
the water softener valve. Be sure to keep fittings fully
together, and pipes squared and straight.
Be sure hard water supply pipe goes to the water sof-
tener valve inlet side.
NOTE: Inlet and outlet are marked on the water softener
valve. Trace the water flow direction to be sure
hard water is to inlet.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to fit, align and support all plumb-
ing to prevent putting stress on the water
softener valve inlet and outlet. Stress
from misaligned or unsupported plumbing
may cause damage to the valve.
Complete the inlet and outlet plumbing for the type of
pipe you will be using. Secure ground clamp to metal
pipes (See Fig. 13).
INSTALL VALVE DRAIN HOSE
1. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8"
drain line (provided) to the water softener valve drain
fitting. Use a hose clamp to hold the hose in place.
NOTE: Avoid drain hose runs longer than 30 feet. Avoid
elevating the hose more than 8 feet above the
floor. Make the valve drain line as short and
direct as possible.
IMPORTANT: If codes require a rigid drain line see
"Valve Drain requirements" section.
2. Route the drain hose or copper tubing to the floor
drain. Secure drain hose. This will prevent "whip-
ping'' during regenerations. See "Air Gap
Requirements" section.
INSTALL SALT STORAGE TANK OVERFLOW
HOSE
1. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8"
drain line (provided) to the salt storage tank over-
flow elbow and secure in place with a hose clamp.
2 Route the hose to the floor drain, or other suitable
drain point no higher than the drain fitting on the salt
storage tank (This is a gravity drain). If the tank
overfills with water, the excess water flows to the
drain point. Cut the drain line to the desired length
and route it neatly out of the way.
IMPORTANT: For proper operation of the water soften-
er, do not connect the water softener
valve drain tubing to the salt storage
tank overflow hose.
