Caring for your Water Conditioner

Keep the salt tank at least 1/3 full at all times. If the salt is allowed to run out it will decrease quality of your water. Check timer monthly and reset if needed.

Do not water the lawn or fill your pool with treated water. There is normally an untreated spigot on top of the pump for that purpose.

You can use treated water for your car or boat. However, excessive use of treated water may effect your water quality. Normally all of the outside spigots are treated.

Do not use liquid fabric softener in your washer. Use dryer sheets only.

Keep your sand and sediment filter clean at all times. This filters out solid particles that can restrict the flow of water and decrease the life of your conditioner. The filter should be changed approximately every three months.

If you have an inline chlorine feeder, add 10-12 tabs each month. Never mix types of chlorine tabs (stabilized or unstabilized)

If you have a carbon filter it should be rebed every 12-18 months.

If your water conditioner contains tannin resin, you should add citric acid to keep the resin clean and prevent the build up pf minerals in the vlave and drain line. 1lb of citric acid per 160lbs of salt. Pour directly on top of salt.

It is not uncommon for the GFI outlet to trip. Please check unit for power if you notice a decline in water quality and reset if necessary.
