Hide thumbs


Controls for programming the water softener are dis-
played on a touch screen, located on the softener's
front panel (See Figure 17). On-screen "buttons"
appear as rectangular outlines with rounded corners
and change with each display (See Figures below).
Button presses are acknowledged with a "beep."
NOTE: Before cleaning the touch screen to remove
fingerprints, unplug the transformer. The con-
troller's memory items (including clock time,
water hardness, etc.) are retained during brief
power interruptions. Use a microfiber towel or
household cleaner safe for plastics on the
touch screen.
When the softener is plugged in for the first time, a
beep sounds and the display briefly shows "E-Z
Touch", followed by the model number and software
Next, a series of three setup screens prompts you to
enter basic operating information:
1. LANGUAGE: If the desired language is not
checked (See Figure 15), press the button next to
the desired language, then press the NEXT button.
2. CURRENT TIME: Press the DOWN ( ) or UP ( )
buttons to set the current time (See Figure 16).
Hold the button down to rapidly advance. Be sure
AM or PM is correct. When the current time is
shown, press the NEXT button.
