General and Commercial Installation Checklist
Water Pressure
A minimum of 25 lbs of water pressure is required for regeneration valve to operate effectively.
Electrical Facilities
An uninterrupted alternating current (A/C) supply is required. Make sure:
• Voltage supply is compatible with unit before installation.
• Current supply is always hot and cannot be turned off with another switch.
Existing Plumbing
Condition of existing plumbing should be free from lime and iron buildup. Replace piping that has heavy lime
and/or iron build-up. If piping is clogged with iron, install a separate iron filter unit ahead of the water softener.
Location of Softener and Drain
Locate the softener close to a clean working drain and connect according to local plumbing codes.
Bypass Valves
Always provide for the installation of a bypass valve if unit is not equipped with one.
CAUTION

General and Commercial Installation Checklist
1. Place the softener tank where you want to install the unit.
NOTE: Be sure the tank is level and on a firm base.
2. During cold weather it is recommended that the installer warm the valve to room temperature before operating.
3. Perform all plumbing according to local plumbing codes.
— Use a 1/2" minimum pipe size for the drain.
— Use a 3/4" drain line for backwash flow rates that exceed 7 gpm or length that exceeds 20′ (6 m).
4. Both tanks must be the same height and diameter and filled with equal amounts of media.
5. The distributor tube must be flush with the top of each tank. Cut if necessary. Use only non-aerosol silicone
lubricant.
6. Lubricate the distributor o-ring seal and tank o-ring seal. Place the main control valve on one tank and the tank
adapter on the second tank.
NOTE: If required, solder copper tubing for tank interconnection before assembling on the main control valve
and tank adapter. Maintain a minimum of 1" distance between tanks on final assembly.
7. Solder joints near the drain must be done before connecting the Drain Line Flow Control fitting (DLFC). Leave
at least 6" (152 mm) between the DLFC and solder joints when soldering pipes that are connected on the
DLFC. Failure to do this could cause interior damage to DLFC.
8. Use only Teflon tape on the drain fitting.
9. Be sure the floor under the salt storage tank is clean and level.
10. Place approximately 1" (25 mm) of water above the grid plate. If a grid is not utilized, fill to the top of the air
check in the salt tank. Do not add salt to the brine tank at this time.
11. On units with a bypass, place in Bypass position.
— Turn on the main water supply.
— Open a cold soft water tap nearby and let water run a few minutes or until the system is free of foreign
material (usually solder) resulting from the installation. Close the water tap when water runs clean.
12. Place the bypass In Service position and let water flow into the mineral tank. When water flow stops, slowly
open a cold water tap nearby and let water run until air is purged from the unit. Then close tap.
Electrical
13. Make all electrical connections according to codes. Plug the valve into an approved power source. Do not
insert meter cable into the meter yet.
14. Tank one has control valve and tank two has adapter. See Figure 1, page 5 or Figure 2, page 5.
15. Look on the right side of the control valve, it has indicators showing which position the control valve is in during
Regeneration and which tank is In Service.
— Figure 3, page 7 shows the valve In Service position with tank one supplying conditioned water and tank
two on standby.
NOTE: Make sure the meter cable is not inserted in the meter dome. Swing the timer out to expose the
program wheel (to swing timer out) grab onto the lower right corner of timer face and pull outward. See
Figure 5, page 8.

16. Cycle timer into backwash position. Turn manual knob so that the micro switch rides on the first set of pins.
— In this position the tanks switch (lower piston) and the control valve moves to the backwash position (upper
piston).
— Wait until the positioning of upper and lower pistons stops before advancing the timer further. If advanced
too fast the control will not home into the In Service position (it will not advance to any other position). To
correct this, rotate the manual knob back to In Service and start again into backwash.
NOTE: Once valve positions itself into the backwash cycle, the homing circuit locks in.
17. With all the air backwashed, slowly cycle the timer to the brine position; rapid rinse; and brine tank refill. Wait
for the control drive motor to position itself in each cycle and stop, before advancing on to the next position.
18. Once back in the In Service position, cycle the control valve again into the backwash position. The tanks
switch again, and air head backwashes out of the other tank. Cycle the control back to the In Service position.
Leave the timer in the open position. DO NOT insert meter cable yet.

Regeneration Cycle Program Setting Procedure
Setting the Regeneration Cycle Program
The Regeneration cycle program on the water conditioner is preset at the factory. However, portions of the cycle or
program time may be lengthened or shortened for local conditions or system design.
1. Expose cycle program wheel by grasping timer in lower right hand corner and pulling. This releases snap
retainer and swings timer to the left
NOTE: Meter cable must be removed from meter dome before opening timer.
2. Remove the program wheel by grasping program wheel and squeezing protruding lugs towards center. Lift
program wheel off timer.
— Switch arms may require movement to facilitate removal.
3. Return timer to closed position by engaging snap retainer in back plate.
— Make certain all electrical wires locate above snap retainer post.
Changing Length of the Backwash Time
The program wheel in Figure 5 is In Service position. Looking at the numbered side of the program wheel, the
group of pins starting at zero determines the length of time the unit backwashes.
Example: If there are six pins in this section, the time of backwash is 12 minutes (2 minutes per pin). To
change the length of backwash time, add or remove pins as required.
— The number of pins multiplied by two equals minutes of backwash.
Changing Length of Brine and Rinse Time
The group of holes between the last pin in the backwash section and the second group of pins determines the
length of time that a unit will brine and rinse (2 minutes per hole).
To change the length of brine and rinse time, add or remove pins in the rapid rinse group of pins to increase or
decrease the number of holes in the brine and rinse section.
— The number of holes multiplied by two equals minutes of brine and rinse.
Changing Length Of Rapid Rinse
The second group of pins on the program wheel determines the length of time the water conditioner rapid rinses (2
minutes per pin). To change the length of rapid rinse time, add or remove pins at the higher numbered end of this
section as required.
— The number of pins multiplied by two equals minutes of rapid rinse.
NOTE: Program wheels with 0–82 minute cycle times, use one minute per pin or hole to set Regeneration
times. The layout of pins and holes on the program wheel follow the same procedure as on this page.
Changing Length of Brine Tank Refill Time
The second group of holes on the program wheel determines the length of time the water conditioner refills the
brine tank (2 minutes per hole).
To change the length of refill time, move the two pins at the end of the second group of holes as required.
The Regeneration cycle is complete when the two pin set at end of the brine tank refill section trips the outer
micro-switch. The program wheel, however, continues to rotate until the inner micro-switch drops into the notch on
the program wheel.

Model 9000/9100/9500
Time Brine Refill and Meter Setting Procedure
Programming
1. The control valve is set at the factory for backwash; brine and slow rinse; rapid rinse and brine tank fill times.
Change any of these times by repositioning the pins and holes or adding more pins.
NOTE: Two speed timer motors are available
1/15 RPM has 82 minute Regeneration Time and each pin or hole equals one minute.
1/30 RPM has 164 minute Regeneration Time and each pin or hole equals two minutes.
2. The control valve has a separate brine tank fill cycle.
— Calculate the desired salt setting using the brine line flow control rate of refill (in gpm) multiplied by the
timer setting. Then, using one gallon of fresh water dissolving approximately 3 lbs salt, calculate the refill
time.
Example: A desired 30 lbs salt setting:
The unit has a 1.0 gpm refill rate so a 10 gallon fill is required.
10 gallons x 3 lbs/gals = 30 lbs salt
Set the timer refill section at 10 minutes.
10 minutes x 1.0 gpm = 10 gallon fill
NOTE: There must always be two pins at the end of a refill time to stop the fill cycle.
With the Regeneration times set, place timer back to its original position, making sure the lower right
hand corner snaps back into the backplate and the meter cable slides through the backplate and does
not bind.
3. Setting the gallon wheel.
Knowing the amount of resin in each tank and the salt setting per Regeneration, calculate the gallons
available, using the following capacities as a guide:
(capacity per ft3 x ft3 of resin per tank)
compensated hardness of H2O
= gallons available
NOTE: Based on tank size:
More resin increases capacity, less resin decreases capacity.
More salt increases capacity, less salt decreases capacity.
Example:
tank diameter
compensated hardness

16"
35 grains per gal (tested sample)

(24,000 x 4 ft3 of resin per tank)
35 grains
= 2740 gallons available before regeneration
DO NOT SET THIS FIGURE - GO TO STEP 4
— Because the control valve regenerates with soft water from the other tank, subtract the water used for
Regeneration. Take each Regeneration cycle and calculate the water used.
10
Model 9000/9100/9500
Example: Unit is set for a 16" diameter tank with 4 ft3 of resin and salted at 8 lbs. per ft3, 7 gpm backwash,
#3 injector, 1.0 gpm brine refill, and 60 psi and timer set for 10 min. backwash, 60 min. brine and
rinse, 10 min. rapid rinse, 10 min. brine tank fill.

Total Regeneration Water = 210.0 gallons
With the 2740 gallons available calculated in Step 3, subtract the Regeneration water used from the
total water available.
2740 gallons available
- 210 gallons used =
(in Regeneration, Step 4)
2530 gallons
4. Set meter wheel at approximately 2530 gallons. Lift the inner dial of the meter program wheel so that you can
rotate it freely. Position the white dot opposite the 2530 gallon setting.
NOTE: There is a slight delay between the time the meter zeros out and the cycle starts. Units using the:
1/15 RPM motor, 82 minute Regeneration Time has a 9 minute delay
1/30 RPM motor, 180 minute Regeneration Time has an 18 minute delay.
This delay period is not critical on residential equipment. However, take this factor into consideration
for commercial applications by subtracting continuous flows for 9 minutes or 18 minutes from water
available.
5. Insert meter cable into meter.
6. Check bypass.
7. Plug in unit.

Totalizer arrow flashes indicating that the display is resetting properly.
Low Battery Indicator
Figure 15
The red Low Battery LED turns on whenever the 9V Alkaline Battery (not included) requires replacement. The
battery is used for memory backup and is stored against the valve backplate. In the event of a power outage, the
battery maintains the current operating displays for approximately 24 hours at maximum battery capacity.
Immediate Regeneration Valves With Days Between Regeneration Override Set
When the valve reaches its set Days Since Regeneration Override value, a Regeneration cycle initiates
immediately. This event occurs regardless of the Volume Remaining display reaching zero gallons.
Delayed Regeneration Valves With Days Between Regeneration Override Set
When the valve reaches its set Days Since Regeneration Override value, a Regeneration cycle initiates at the
preset Regeneration Time. This event occurs regardless of the Volume Remaining display reaching the calculated
reserve capacity.
Control Operation During Regeneration
In Regeneration the control displays a special Regeneration display. The control shows the current
Regeneration step number to which the valve is advancing or has reached, and the time remaining in that step.
The displayed step number flashes until the valve completes driving to the Regeneration step position. Once all
Regeneration steps are complete the valve returns to In Service and resumes normal operation.

Regeneration
Step #1
Backwash
Figure 16
Press the Extra Cycle button during a Regeneration cycle to immediately advances the valve to the next cycle step
position and resume normal step timing.
Control Operation During Programming
The control enters Program Mode with the valve In Service. While in Program Mode the control continues to
operate normally, monitoring water usage and keeping all displays up to date. Control programming is stored in
memory permanently. There is no need for battery backup power.
Control Operation During A Power Failure
During a power failure all control displays and programming are stored for use upon power re-application. The
control retains these values for years, if necessary, without loss. The control is fully inoperative and any calls for
Regeneration are delayed. The control, upon power re-application, resumes normal operation from the point that it
was interrupted. An inaccurate or flashing Time of Day display indicates that a power outage has occurred.

SE Timer Control Start-Up Procedures
Display SE
Figure 17 : SE Timer Display
In normal operation the Time Of Day display alternates with Volume Remaining and Tank in In Service displays
(9000SE Timer only). As treated water is used, the Volume Remaining display counts down (in gallons) from a
maximum value to zero or (----). Once this occurs a Regeneration cycle initiates immediately or delayed to the set
Regeneration Time. Water flow through the valve is indicated by the flashing Flow Dot Indicator.
Figure 18 : SE Timer Display During Normal Operation
Set Time of Day
When the valve is In Service, press either the Set Up or Set Down button once to adjust the Time Of Day by one
digit. Press and hold to adjust by several digits.

Immediate Regeneration Valves With Days Between Regeneration Override Set
When the valve reaches its set Days Since Regeneration Override value, a Regeneration cycle initiates
immediately. This event occurs regardless of the Volume Remaining display reaching zero gallons.
Delayed Regeneration Valves With Days Between Regeneration Override Set
When the valve reaches its set Days Since Regeneration Override value a Regeneration cycle initiates at the
preset Regeneration Time. This event occurs regardless of the Volume Remaining display reaching zero gallons.
Control Operation During Regeneration
In Regeneration the control displays a special Regeneration display. While in Regeneration the control shows
the current Regeneration step number to which the valve is advancing or has reached, and the time remaining in
that step. The displayed step number flashes until the valve completes driving to this Regeneration step position.
Once all Regeneration steps are complete the valve returns to In Service and resumes normal operation.
Example:
Figure 19
Pressing the Extra Cycle button during a Regeneration cycle immediately advances the valve to the next cycle
step position and resumes normal step timing.
Control Operation During Programming
The control only enters the Program Mode with the valve In Service. While in the Program Mode the control
continues to operate normally monitoring water usage and keeping all displays up to date. Control programming is
stored in memory permanently. There is no need for battery backup power.
Control Operation During A Power Failure
During a power failure all control displays and programming are stored for use upon power re-application. The
control retains these values for years, if necessary, without loss. The control is fully inoperative and any calls for
Regeneration are delayed. The control, upon power re-application, resumes normal operation from the point that it
was interrupted. An inaccurate or flashing Time of Day display indicates that a power outage has occurred.

General Service Hints
Problem: Softener delivers hard water
PROBLEM
Softener delivers hard water.
CAUSE
CORRECTION
Reserve capacity has been exceeded. Check salt dosage requirements and
reset program wheel to provide additional reserve.
Program wheel is not rotating with
meter output.
Pull cable out of meter cover and rotate
manually. Program wheel must move
without binding and cycle actuator must
start the cycle before the clutch
releases.
Meter is not measuring flow.
Check output by observing rotation of
small gear on front of timer
(Note: Program wheel must not be
against regeneration stop for this check)
Each tooth is approximately 75 gallons
on 1-1/2″ installations. If not performing
properly, replace meter.
