A. KEEP THE FILTER FROM FREEZING
If the
filter
is installed
where
it
could
freeze
(summer
cabin,
lake
home,
etc.), you must
drain
all wa-
ter from it to stop possible
damage
caused
by freezing.
To drain
the fil-
ter -
.
5.
Unplug
the transformer
at the wall outlet.
Pull the holding
clip to remove
the drain
fitting,
with
drain
hose
attached,
from
the valve.
DO
NOT
LOSE
THE
BLACK
RUBBER
FLOW
PLUG
AND
RETAINER.
.
.
.
Close
the shut
off valve
on the
house
main
water
pipe,
near
the
water
meter
or pressure
tank.
Open
a faucet
in the filtered
water
pipes
to vent pressure
in
the filter.
Looking
at Figure
9 on page
4-1, move
the stem
in a single
bypass
valve
to bypass.
Close
the inlet
and outlet
valve
in a
three valve bypass
system,
and
open
the bypass
valve.
6.
Remove
the plastic
clips (see Key No. 12, page
6- 3) and pull the adaptors
or bypass
valve from
the inlet and outlet.
.
Move the filter close to the floor drain. SLOWLY
and CAREFULLY
(the filter is heavy)
tip the fil-
ter over so the valve
inlet and outlet
are over the
drain.
Allow
water
to drain
from the tank. DO
NOT REST THE FILTER
ON THE INLET AND
OUTLET
FITTINGS
OR THEY WILL BREAK.
.
Tip the bottom
of the filter up a few inches
and
hold until all water
has drained.
Leave the filter
laying
like this until you are ready to use it. Plug
the inlet and outlet
with rags to keep dirt, bugs,
etc. out.
B. ADDING
MINERAL...
NEUTRALIZER
FILTER
The
neutralite
mineral
is
slowing
dissolved
to
neutralize
acid in the water
(see page 2- 4). If the fil-
ter was never
serviced,
all the mineral
would
dis-
solve.
How
fast is dissolves
depends
on how much
water
is used,
the pH of the water,
and other
supply
conditions.
Add
new mineral
(see below)
about
6 months
after
installation.
Before you add new mineral,
use a yard
stick or tape rule to measure
the distance
down
to
the top of the mineral
bed (Figure
7). If the measure-
ment
is 32" or less, over half of the mineral
bed re-
mains.
You could wait 9 or 10 months
before adding
mineral
the next
time.
However,
if distance
to the
bed is 38" or more,
less than
1/4
of the mineral
re-
mains
and
adding
more
mineral
every
5 months
may be better.
Use this measurement
procedure
each time,
to ad-
just
your mineral
adding
intervals
to changing
wa-
ter use patterns
and other
conditions.
