To ensure a steady supply of soft water
the water softener unit must always be:
1. correctly set for the water hardness
level in your area.
2. the salt reservoir must be filled.
(If the water hardness level is below
4 gr/gal (4 °d - German scale) the
water does not need to be softened.)
The machine is set at the factory for a
water hardness level of 19 gr/gal
If the water supply is harder or softer
than this (including below 4 gr/gal or
4 °d) the factory setting will need to
be changed. For settings see chart.
Your local water authority will advise
you of the water hardness in your area.
For fluctuating levels (e.g. 8 - 17 gr/gal
or 8 - 17 °d) set the water softener to
the highest setting (in this example to
17 gr/gal or 17°d).
The built-in water softener has settings
from 1 - 62 gr/gal or 1 °d - 60 °d.
