Programming the
Water Softener
START A RECHARGE
1. Press the RECHARGE button and hold for three
seconds, until "RECHARGE" begins to flash in the
display, starting a recharge. This recharge draws
the sanitizing bleach into and through the water
softener. Any air remaining in the water softener is
purged to the drain. During this time, periodically
check for leaks.
NOTE: As with all other water system applications,
leaks may occur. Leaks may not be immedi-
ately apparent. Recheck for leaks 24 hours
after first recharge cycle is complete.
POWER OUTAGE MEMORY
If electrical power to the water softener is lost, "mem-
ory'' built into the timer circuitry will keep all settings
for several hours. While the power is out, the display
is blank and the water softener will not regenerate.
When electrical power is restored, the following will
occur:
Reset the present time only if the display is flashing.
The HARDNESS and RECHARGE TIME never
require resetting unless a change is desired. Even if
the clock is incorrect after a long power outage, the
softener operates as it should to keep your water soft.
However, regenerations may occur at the wrong time
of day until you reset the clock to the correct time of
day.
NOTE: If the water softener was regenerating when
power was lost, it will now finish the cycle.
