Installation
Instructions
SANITIZING
PROCEDURES
To complete
the installation,
do the following
sanitizing
procedures.
Care is taken at the factory
to keep your water
softener clean and sanitary.
Materials used to make
the softener will not infect or contaminate
your water
supplg and will not cause bacteria to form or grow.
However, during shipping, storage, installation
and
operation,
bacteria could get into the softener. For
this reason, sanitizing
as follows is suggested
when
installing.
NOTE: Sanitizing
is recommended
bg the
Water Oualitg
Association
for disinfecting.
1. Be sure to complete
all installation
steps, including
programming
the control.
2. Pour about 3/4 oz. (lY_ tablespoons)
of common
5.25% unscented
household
bleach (Clorox, Linco,
Bo Peep, White Sail, Eagle, etc.) into the brinewell.
Refer to illustration
on page 5.
3. IMPORTANT: Press and hold for 3 seconds
the faceplate
RECHARGE @ button to start an
immediate
recharge. RECHARGE begins to flash in
the display. The bleach will be drawn through
the
water softener, and out the drain. This process
takes approximatelg
2 hours.
4. If, after sanitization,
water from the house
faucet tastes salty or has a slight color, this is a
preservative
from the resin tank. Turn on the cold
soft water faucets and drain for a few minutes or
until clean
NOTE: When the sanitizing
recharge is over, all
remaining
bleach is flushed from the conditioner
and your house COLD water supply is fully soft
immediatelg.
However, your water heater is filled
with hard water and as hot water is used, it will refill
with soft water. When all the hard water is replaced
in the water heater, hot only and mixed hot and cold
water will be fullg soft. If you want totallg soft water
immediatelg,
after the above recharge, drain the
water heater until the water runs cold.
ZI, W A RN IN G:,fyou do drain the water
heater, use extreme care as the hot water could
cause burns. Turn the water heater off prior to
draining.

*
Testing was performed using pellet grade sodium chloride as the regenerant salt
**
Effidencg rating is valid only at the lowest stated salt dosage This softener was effidencg
rated according to
NSF/ANS144

Extent of iron removal may vary with conditions, The capadtg to reduce clear water iron is substantiated
by WOA
test data, State of Wisconsin requires additional
treatment if water supply contains greater than 5 ppm clear water
iron Use of Diamond Crystal ® Red,Out ® or Super Iron Out ®will improve iron removal Refer to Cleaning
