UFL-420/440 water Filtration system
Overview
Overview
The UFL system operates in two modes:
• Normal Operation Mode
• Flush Mode
During Normal Operation Mode, water enters the Inlet
and flows through the Ultra Filter before exiting the
Permeate Outlet as usable product water.
During Flush Mode, the Drain Valve opens and water
entering the Inlet flushes and cleans the Ultra Filter
membrane by removing any debris collecting on the
membrane wall.
The Drain Valve is only powered during Flush Mode.
NOTE: Do NOT unplug the power cord or turn off
the system during Flush Mode. If there is a power
outage or the system is unplugged, water will continue to be filtered but the system will NOT flush.
This could cause the Ultra Filter to plug prematurely and may void the warranty.
Figure 2. UFL-420 System
The flush is automated by the controller to last 10
seconds and take place in one hour intervals. This
interval can be changed (see Changing the Interval
Setting in the Maintenance section of this manual).
Caution
Changing the flush interval can cause the Ultra
Filter to plug prematurely and may void the warranty. Consult the factory for more information.
Manual Flushing
A manual flush can be activated at any time by pressing
the FLUSH button.
When the FLUSH button is pressed, the Flush LED on
the controller flashes and the Drain Valve opens for 10
seconds. After flushing is complete, the Drain Valve will
close, the Flush LED will stop flashing and the unit will
automatically return to Normal Operation Mode.
NOTE: A manual flush will not affect the interval
flush setting.

UFL-420/440 water Filtration system
Flow Regulator Assembly
Installation (continued)
Inlet Water Plumbing
Your filtration system uses a water Flow Regulator
Assembly that controls the flow of water into the unit.
This assembly consists of a white threaded male connector and a color-coded Flow Regulator (Figure 3).
The unit MUST be operated with the appropriate Flow
Regulator Assembly.
•
UFL-420 Units: Use a GREEN and WHITE Flow
Regulator Assembly (5 gallons per minute).
•
UFL-440 Units: Use a BLACK and WHITE Flow
Regulator Assembly (10 gallons per minute).
The Inlet water plumbing line should be 1” NPT or
larger. A shutoff valve (not supplied) should be installed
in the line leading to the system. The valve should be
mounted close to the system inlet and sized properly for
the inlet plumbing line.
An optional “T” or Cross Fitting with cap or plug can be
installed between the Inlet Valve and the System Inlet.
This fitting can be used for draining and sanitizing the
system and downstream plumbing.
The system should only be connected to the cold water
line.
Caution
Flow Regulator Assemblies are NOT interchangeable. Operating the system with the wrong Flow
Regulator or without a Flow Regulator can damage the system, cause personal injury, and
will void the warranty!
Before connecting the fitting to the System Inlet, the
plumbing to the system must be flushed clear of all
debris. Hold a bucket at the inlet water line and slowly
open the Inlet Water Valve. Allow the pipe to flush until
all debris is removed.
INSET
Mounting the System
Water Flow
The UFL system comes with a Mounting Bracket to
mount the system securely. When mounting the system,
pay attention to the following guidelines:
•

Permeate Line Plumbing
Secure
End
To ensure the highest quality and safest water, it is
recommended that a check valve (to prevent backflow)
be installed in the water line after the permeate connection. This will help prevent possible contamination of
the filter system due to other equipment downstream.
The check valve (not supplied) should be mounted
close to the system outlet, and sized properly for the
plumbing line. Check with local codes for the proper
specification.
2” (5.1 cm)

Figure 4. Proper Drain Plumbing
When connecting the drain hose, pay attention to the
following guidelines:
• The drain line plumbing must be able support the
flow rate whenever the system flushes. This flow
rate is dependent on the inlet water pressure, inlet
pipe size, and system.
• The drain line leading out of the system must be
as short as possible and slope downwards without
any kinks or loops.
• The drain line plumbing must be position and
secured at least 2 inches above the drain (Figure
4). This air gap protects the system from contamination in the event of a backed-up drain.
• The drain used must not be blocked or restricted.
• The drain used must be as large or larger than
the drain line plumbing.
