Requirements for Proper Operation:
Water Pressure: A minimum water pressure
of 20 psi and a maximum of 125 psi must be
supplied to the equipment.
Water Temperature: The water temperature
operating range is a minimum of 35˚ F and
a maximum of 100˚ F. The system and drain
must be protected from freezing.

factory for special settings.
Electricity: Plug sytems into a standard 110
volt outlet. System uses 110 v - 60 hz - 3watts
Tips for Maximizing the Benefits From the Series 9000:
Salt: By using a clean grade of salt, you can
reduce or eliminate brine tank clean outs. If
you have iron in your water, using an iron
inhibiting salt can help. Always keep the salt
level above the water level in the brine tank.
Power: In the event of a power outage,
check
the timer for the current time and adjust if
necessary.
2
Bypass: If you require well or pump work,
always bypass your Series 9000 until the
work is finished and the water runs clear.
Sand: If sand is present, use a special
filter to remove the sand before the system.
Installation Procedure
• System and Installation must comply with state and local codes.
Read all instructions before starting!

the building.
1. Turn off electric or gas to water heater and the inlet (cold)
water valve to heater.
2. Turn off main water supply to building and drain off pressure
at all cold water outlets.
3. In placing the inlet line to the unit make these considerations.
Note: If the building is pre-plumbed with a three way By-Pass that
By-Pass must be inspected. If the By-Pass does not seal 100%
there will be hard water intrusion.
Drain Line Connection
On the back of the water control center there is a 1/2” Threaded port. This is the connector for the system drain. Use only teflon
tape on the connection. Do not use pipe dope or paste of any kind.
Note:
You may elevate the drain line up to 6 feet if you are discharging into an open drain and if you have a minimum of 40 psi water pressure at the softener. You may elevate an additional 2 feet for each additional 10 psi over 40 psi.
Also, the total run of the drain line should not exceed 20 feet.
Some codes require, and it is advisable, that you leave a 4” air gap between the drain line and the floor drain.
Brine Line
On these units it is necessary to install the brine line between the control valve and the brine tank. A 4 foot piece of
3/8” poly tubing is included with the unit. Install one end of the tubing to the compression elbow at the brine tank making sure the
brass sleeve is inserted into the tube before hookup. Install the other end of the tubing into the compression nut on the right hand
side of the control valve making sure to first insert a brass sleeve into the tubing and then insert the brine screen (included) into the
brass sleeve. Tighten fittings.
Overflow
Each unit has the provision for connecting an overflow drain line. On the brine tank is a slip fitting for 5/8” plastic line. This should be
run to an area where a small amount of spillage would be accepted in the event a malfunction should occur.
Sanitizing the System
The materials of construction of the modern water conditioner will not promote bacterial growth, nor will these materials contaminate
a water supply. However, the normal conditions that exist during shipment, storage and installation make it advisable to disinfect a
conditioner after installation, before the conditioner is used to treat potable water. In addition, during normal use, a conditioner may
become fouled with organic matter, or in some cases, with bacteria from the water supply. Therefore every conditioner should be
disinfected after installation, some will require periodic disinfection during their normal life.
To Disinfect the System:
1. Add 1.2 fluid ounce of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite solution (household bleach; Clorox, Bo Peep, etc.) for each cubic foot of resin to
the brine well of the brine tank. ( the 4” tube with a cap on it inside of the brine tank)
2. Manually start a normal regeneration. Allow the system to complete the regeneration.
