How much brine is needed to clean the resin depends on: -- the amount of resin in the softener.

    SECTION 5 5E. WATER FLOW THROUGH THE SOFTENER VALVE Hard water enters the valve inlet port. Internal valve porting routes the water down and out the top distributor, into the resin tank. Hard water is softened as it passes through the resin bed, then enters the bottom distributor.
  • Page 29 SECTION 5 5E. WATER FLOW THROUGH THE SOFTENER VALVE BRINING AND BRINE RINSE CYCLES After fill, timer/switch action allows the motor to turn the rotor and disc into BRINING position. Water flow is directed to the nozzle. Suction, created by the nozzle and venturi, draws brine from the salt storage tank and injects it into the resin bed via the bottom distributor.
  • Page 30 SECTION 5 SERVICER’S TECH. INFORMATION 5E. WATER FLOW THROUGH THE SOFTENER VALVE FAST RINSE CYCLE During FAST RINSE, the rotor & disc is positioned so water flow enters the resin tank through the top distributor, and exits through the bottom distributor, to the drain. The solid state timer again energizes the motor to return the valve to service, and as the valve rotates, the position switch lever drops to open the circuit.
