COMPLETE INLET AND OUTLET PLUMBING
Measure, cut, and loosely assemble pipe and fittings
from the main water pipe to the inlet and outlet ports of
the water softener valve. Be sure to keep fittings fully
together, and pipes squared and straight.
Be sure hard water supply pipe goes to the water sof-
tener valve inlet side.
NOTE: Inlet and outlet are marked on the water sof-
tener valve. Trace the water flow direction to
be sure hard water is to inlet.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to fit, align and support all
plumbing to prevent putting stress on
the water softener valve inlet and outlet.
Stress from misaligned or unsupported
plumbing may cause damage to the
Complete the inlet and outlet plumbing for the type of
pipe you will be using. Secure the unit with its
inlet/outlet plumbing connections to a wall or other
rigid surface to prevent tipping (See Figure 13 on the
INSTALL VALVE DRAIN HOSE
1. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8"
drain line (provided) to the water softener valve
drain fitting. Use a hose clamp to hold the hose in
NOTE: Make the valve drain line as short and direct
IMPORTANT: If codes require a rigid drain line see
"Valve Drain requirements" section.
2. Route the drain hose or copper tubing to the floor
drain. Secure drain hose. This will prevent "whip-
ping'' during regenerations. See "Air Gap
CONNECT BRINE TUBING
Route the brine tubing out, through the largest hole in
the salt storage tank sidewall. Connect the tubing to
the nozzle/venturi housing, as shown in Figure 14,
using a ferrule nut. Tighten the nut by hand. Then,
using a wrench or pliers, tighten it a half turn more.
INSTALL SALT STORAGE TANK OVERFLOW
ELBOW AND HOSE
1. Install the brine tank overflow grommet and elbow in
the 13/16" diameter hole in the salt storage tank
NOTE: The brine tank overflow elbow accepts either
1/2" or 3/8" I.D. hose.
2. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8"
drain line (provided) to the salt storage tank over-
flow elbow and secure in place with a hose clamp.
3. Route the hose to the floor drain, or other suitable
drain point no higher than the drain fitting on the salt
storage tank (This is a gravity drain). If the tank
overfills with water, the excess water flows to the
drain point. Cut the drain line to the desired length
and route it neatly out of the way.
IMPORTANT: For proper operation of the water soften-
er, do not connect the water softener
valve drain tubing to the salt storage
tank overflow hose.
