Water Softener Safety
For installations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts:
Installation by a licensed plumber is required. Plumbing code 248-- CMR of the Commonwealth
of Massachusetts must be used for installation.
For installations in the state of California:
You must turn the Salt Efficiency Feature setting to ON. This may initiate more frequent recharges, however, it will operate at 4,000 grains per pound of salt or higher. To turn on the Salt
Efficiency Feature, follow the instructions in the “Salt Efficiency” section of this manual.
Before You Start
See “Location Requirements” section before installing water softener.
Follow the installation instructions carefully. (Failure to install the water softener properly voids the
warranty.)
Before you begin installation, read this entire manual. Then, obtain all the materials and tools you will
need to make the installation.
Check local plumbing and electrical codes.
Use only lead-- free solder and flux for all sweat-solder connections, as required by federal codes.
Use care when handling the water softener. Do not turn upside down, drop, or set on sharp protrusions.
Avoid installing in direct sunlight. Excessive sun heat may cause distortion or other damage to
non-- metallic parts.
3
The water softener requires a minimum water flow of 3 gallons per minute at the inlet. Maximum
allowable inlet water pressure is 125 psi. If daytime pressure is over 80 psi, nighttime pressure may
exceed the maximum. Use a pressure reducing valve if necessary. (Adding a pressure reducing valve
may reduce the flow.) If your home is equipped with a back flow preventer, an expansion tank must
be installed in accordance with local codes and laws.
The water softener works on 24 volt-- 60 hz electrical power only, supplied by a direct plug-- in
transformer (included). Be sure to use the included transformer and plug it into a nominal 120V, 60
cycle household outlet that is properly protected by an overcurrent device such as a circuit breaker or
fuse. If transformer is replaced, use only the authorized service, Class II, 24V 10VA transformer.
This system is not intended to be used for treating water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown
quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
European Directive 2002/96/EC requires all electrical and electronic equipment to be disposed of
according to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) requirements. This directive or
similar laws are in place nationally and can vary from region to region. Please refer to your state
and local laws for proper disposal of this equipment.
Inspect Shipment
The parts required to assemble and install the water softener are included with the water softener.

Thoroughly check the water softener for possible shipping damage and parts loss. Also inspect and
note any damage to the shipping carton.
Remove and discard (or recycle) all packing materials. To avoid loss of small parts, we suggest you
keep the small parts in the parts bag until you are ready to use them.
Do not return the water softener to store.
If you have any questions, or there are missing parts or damage, please call
1---866---986---3223, Monday --- Friday, 8 am --- 9 pm EST.

How a Water Softener Works
Softening Cycle
When the water softener is providing soft water, it is called “service” or the “softening cycle”. During
this cycle, hard water flows from the main water pipe in the household into the water softener. Inside
the resin tank is a bed made up of thousands of tiny, plastic resin beads. As hard water passes through
the bed, each bead attracts and holds the hardness minerals. Water without the hardness minerals (soft
water) flows from the water softener to the rest of the house.
Regeneration Cycle
Eventually the beads become coated with calcium or magnesium ions. At this point, the water softener
needs to replenish the beads with sodium ions. This process is called “regeneration”.
Regeneration occurs when the resin beads are washed with a strong salt water solution. The sodium
forces the calcium and magnesium ions to be released where they are then discharged as waste during
the regeneration cycle. The beads are then ready to once again to collect the hardness minerals
(calcium and magnesium) from the water. Regeneration consists of five cycles; brine fill, brining, brine
rinse, backwash and fast rinse. The total time of the regeneration cycle is approximately two hours.
Water Conditioning Information
Water Conditioning
Water conditioning is the treatment of four general conditions. These are:
Hardness
Iron
Acidity
Sediments
1. Hardness is a term to describe the presence of calcium and magnesium minerals in water. A
chemical analysis accurately measures the amount of minerals in grain weight. For example, one
gallon of water with 5 grains per gallon (gpg) hardness has dissolved minerals, that if solidified,
about equals the size of one ordinary aspirin tablet. One gallon of water, 25 gpg hard, has a mineral
content equal in size to 5 aspirin tablets. Water hardness varies greatly across the country. It
generally contains from 3 to 100 gpg.
Hardness minerals combine with soap to make a soap curd. The curd greatly reduces the cleaning
action of soap. Precipitated hardness minerals form a crust on cooking utensils, appliances, and
plumbing fixtures. Even the tastes of foods are affected. A water softener removes the hardness
minerals to eliminate these effects, and others.
IMPORTANT: Water softeners using sodium chloride (salt) for regeneration add sodium to the
water. Persons on sodium restricted diets should consider the added sodium as part of their overall
intake. Water softeners using potassium chloride (salt) for regeneration add potassium to the water.
Persons on potassium restricted diets should consider the added potassium as part of their overall
intake.

*If your water supply is 15 grains hard and you drank 3 quarts of softened water you would
consume 335 milligrams of sodium. That is equivalent to eating 2-- 1/2 slices of white bread.
**One large banana, about 9 inches in length, has approximately 600 milligrams of potassium.
2. Iron in water can cause stains on clothing and plumbing fixtures. It can negatively affect the taste
of food, drinking water, and other beverages. Iron in water is measured in parts per million (ppm).
The total* ppm of iron, and type or types*, is determined by chemical analysis. Four different types
of iron in water are:
Ferrous (clear water),
Ferric (red water),
Bacterial and organically bound iron,
Colloidal and inorganically bound iron (ferrous or ferric).
*Water may contain one or more of the four types of iron and any combination of these. Total iron
is the sum of the contents.
Ferrous (clear water) iron is soluble and dissolves in water. This water softener will remove
moderate amounts of this type of iron (see specifications). Ferrous (clear water) iron is usually
detected by taking a sample of water in a clear bottle or glass. Immediately after taking, the sample
is clear. As the water sample stands, it gradually clouds and turns slightly yellow or brown as air
oxidizes the iron. This usually occurs in 15 to 30 minutes.
When using the softener to remove Ferrous (clear water) iron, add 5 grains to the hardness setting
for every 1 ppm of Ferrous (clear water) iron.
7
Ferric (red water), and bacterial and organically bound irons are insoluble. This water softener will
not remove ferric or bacterial iron. This iron is visible immediately when drawn from a faucet
because it has oxidized before reaching the home. It appears as small cloudy yellow, orange, or
reddish suspended particles. After the water stands for a period of time, the particles settle to the
bottom of the container. Generally these irons are removed from water by filtration. Chlorination
is also recommended for bacterial iron.
Colloidal and inorganically bound iron is of ferric or ferrous form that will not filter or exchange
out of water. This water softener will not remove colloidal iron. In some instances, treatment may
improve colloidal iron water. Colloidal iron water usually has a yellow appearance when drawn.
After standing for several hours, the color persists and the iron does not settle, but remains
suspended in the water.
3. Acidity or acid water is caused by carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. This water softener will
not improve an acid condition in water. Acid water can be corrosive to plumbing, plumbing
fixtures, water heaters, and other water using appliances. In can also damage and cause premature
failure of seals, diaphragms, etc., in water handling equipment.
A chemical analysis is needed to measure the degree of acidity in water. This is called the pH of
water. Water testing below 6.9 pH is acidic. The lower the pH reading, the greater the acidity. A
neutralizer filter or a chemical feed pump are usually recommended to treat acid water.
4. Sediment is fine, foreign material particles suspended in water. This water softener will not
remove sediment. This material is most often clay or silt. Extreme amounts of sediment may give
the water a cloudy appearance. A sediment filter installed ahead of the water softener normally

Location Requirements
Consider all of the following when selecting an installation location for the water softener.
•
Do not locate the water softener where freezing temperatures occur. Do not attempt to
treat water over 120_F. Freezing, or hot water damage voids the warranty.
•
To condition all water in the home, install the water softener close to the water supply
inlet, and before all other plumbing connections, except outside water pipes. Outside
faucets should remain on hard water to avoid wasting conditioned water and salt.
•
A nearby drain is needed to carry away regeneration discharge (drain) water. Use a floor
drain, laundry tub, sump, standpipe, or other options (check your local codes). See “Air
Gap Requirements” and “Valve Drain Requirements” sections.
•
The water softener works on 24 volt-- 60 hz electrical power only, supplied by a direct
plug-- in transformer (included). Provide an electrical outlet in accordance with NEC and
local codes.
•
Always install the water softener between the water heater and water inlet. Any other
installed water conditioning equipment should be installed between the water softener
and the water inlet (see Figure 1 below).

Valve Drain Requirements
Use the flexible drain hose, that is included, measure and cut to the length needed. Flexible drain hose
is not allowed in all localities (check your plumbing codes). If local codes do not allow use of a flexible
drain hose, a rigid valve drain run must be used. Buy a compression fitting (1/4 NPT x 1/2 in. minimum
tube) and 1/2” tubing from your local hardware store. Then plumb a rigid drain as needed (see Figure
3).
NOTE:
Avoid long drain hose runs, or elevating the hose more than 8’ above the floor. Make the
water softener valve drain as short and direct as possible.

Move the Water Softener into Place
1. Move the water softener into installation position. Set it on a level surface. If needed, place the
water softener on a section of plywood, a minimum of 3/4” thick. Then, shim under the plywood
to level the water softener, see Figure 7.
IMPORTANT: Do not place shims directly under the salt storage tank. The weight of the tank, when
full of water and salt, may cause the tank to fracture at the shim.
Shim

2. Visually check and remove any debris from the water softener valve inlet and outlet ports.
3. Remove and discard the yellow plug and make sure the turbine assembly spins freely in the “out”
port of the valve.
4. If not already done, put a light coating of silicone grease or petroleum jelly on the bypass valve
o-rings.
5. Push the bypass valve into the softener valve as far as it will go. Snap the two large holding clips
into place, from the top down as shown in Figure 8.
IMPORTANT: Be sure the clips snap firmly into place so the single valve bypass will not pull out.

Assemble Inlet and Outlet Plumbing
Measure, cut, and loosely assemble pipe and fittings from the main water pipe to the inlet and outlet
ports of the water softener valve. Be sure to keep fittings fully together, and pipes squared and straight.
Be sure hard water supply pipe goes to the water softener valve inlet side.
NOTE:
Inlet and outlet are marked on the valve. Trace the water flow direction to be sure.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to fit, align and support all plumbing to prevent putting stress on the softener
valve inlet and outlet. Undue stress from misaligned or unsupported plumbing may
cause damage to the valve.
Connect Inlet and Outlet Plumbing
Complete the inlet and outlet plumbing for the type of pipe as shown below.

Soldered copper
1. Thoroughly clean and apply solder flux to all joints.
2. Make all solder connections.
NOTE:
Do not solder with plumbing attached to installation adaptors and single valve bypass.
Soldering heat will damage the adaptors and valve.
IMPORTANT: Secure ground clamp to metal pipes.
14
Threaded pipe
1. Apply pipe joint compound or TeflonR tape to all male pipe threads.
2. Tighten all threaded joints and make all solder connections.
IMPORTANT: Secure ground clamp to metal pipes.
CPVC plastic pipe
1. Clean, prime and cement all joints, following the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with the
plastic pipe and fittings.
Other
1. Follow the piping system manufacturer’s instructions when using other pipe approved for potable
water.
IMPORTANT: Secure ground clamp to metal pipes.
Install Valve Drain Hose
1. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8” drain line (provided) to the water softener
valve drain fitting. Use a hose clamp to hold the hose in place.
NOTE:
If codes require a rigid drain line see “Valve Drain requirements” section.
2. Run the drain hose or copper tubing to the floor drain. Secure drain hose. This will prevent
‘‘whipping’’ during regenerations. See “Air Gap Requirements” section.
Install Salt Storage Tank Overflow Hose
1. Measure, cut to needed length and connect the 3/8” drain line (provided) to the salt storage tank
overflow elbow and secure in place with a hose clamp.
2. Run the hose to the floor drain, or other suitable drain point no higher than the drain fitting on the
salt storage tank. (This is a gravity drain.) If the tank overfills with water, the excess water flows
to the drain point. Cut the drain line to the desired length and route neatly out of the way.
IMPORTANT: For proper operation of the water softener, do not connect the water softener
valve drain tubing to the salt storage tank overflow hose.
Test for Leaks
To prevent air pressure in the water softener and plumbing system, do the following steps in order.
1. Fully open two or more softened cold water faucets close by the water softener, located
downstream from the water softener.
2. Place the single valve bypass valve or 3 valve bypass in “bypass” position. See “Plan The
Installation” section.
3. Fully open the main water supply valve. Run water until there is a steady flow from the opened
faucets, with no air bubbles.
4. Place bypass valve(s) in “service” or soft water position as follows:
•
Single valve bypass: Slowly move the valve stem toward “service”, pausing several times
to allow the water softener to fill with water.
3 valve bypass: Fully close the bypass valve and open the outlet valve. Slowly open the
inlet valve, pausing several times to allow the water softener to fill with water.
5. After about three minutes, open a hot water faucet until there is a steady flow and there are no air
bubbles, then close.
6. Close all cold water faucets and check for leaks at the plumbing connections that you made.
•
15
Add Water and Salt to the Salt Storage Tank
1. Using a container, add about three gallons of clean water into the salt storage tank.
2. Add salt to the storage tank. Use nugget, pellet or coarse solar salts with less than 1% impurities.
NOTE:
See “Routine Maintenance Section” for additional information on salt.
Persons who are on sodium restricted diets should consider the added sodium as part of their overall sodium intake.
For example, if your water supply is 15 grains hard, and you drank 3 quarts of softened water you would consume
335 milligrams of sodium. That is equivalent to eating 2-- 1/2 slices of white bread.
NOTE:
The salt monitor system is calibrated to the density of nugget or pellet water softener salt. The monitor
will not work as accurately with other types of salt including rock and solar.
If you choose Potassium Chloride (KCl) as a regenerant, following these suggestions will help give you years of
maintenance free service.
1. Place only one bag of KCl in your softener at a time (the salt storage tank should contain no more than 60
pounds of KCl at any one time).
2. A softener using KCl should not be placed in areas with temperature fluctuations and high humidity (KCl will
harden in these environments and may make the softener inoperable).
3. Check the brine tank and brine well (black tube in salt storage tank) monthly. If hardening is present, pour small
amounts of warm water on hardened areas until they loosen.
4. If your softener does not have a KCl salt setting you must increase your hardness setting by 25% to ensure
continuous soft water as in example below.

Sanitize the Softener/Sanitize After Service
1. Open salt hole cover and remove the brinewell cover and pour about 1-- 1/2 oz. (2 to 3 tablespoons) of household
bleach into the softener brinewell. Replace the brinewell cover.
2. Make sure the bypass valve(s) is in the service (open) position.
3. Sanitize procedure will be completed when first cycle is run and sanitizing solution is flushed from the water
softener.
Plug in Water Softener
During installation, the water softener wiring may be moved or jostled from place. Check to be sure all leadwire
connectors are secure on the back of the electronic board and be sure all wiring is away from the valve gear and motor
area, which rotates during regenerations.
1. Plug the water softener into an electrical outlet that is not controlled by a switch.
The water heater is filled with hard water and, as hot water is used, it refills with conditioned water. In a few days, the
NOTE:
hot water will be fully conditioned. To have fully conditioned hot water immediately, wait until the initial recharge
is over. Then, drain the water heater (following instructions for water heater) until water runs cold.

Routine Maintenance
Refilling With Salt
Lift the salt hole cover and check the salt storage level frequently. If the conditioner uses all the salt
before you refill it, you will get hard water. Until you have established a refilling routine, check the
salt every two or three weeks. Always add if less than 1/4 full. Be sure the brinewell cover is on.
NOTE:
In humid areas, it is best to keep the salt storage level lower, and to refill more often to
avoid salt bridging.
Recommended Salt: Nugget, pellet or coarse solar salts with less than 1% impurities.
Salt Not Recommended: Rock salt, high in impurities, block, granulated, table, ice melting, ice cream
making salts, etc., are not recommended.
Breaking A Salt Bridge
NOTE:
If you see more than a few inches of water in the bottom of the tank, see “Cleaning the
Nozzle and Venturi” section.
Sometimes, a hard crust or salt bridge forms in the brine tank. It is usually caused by high humidity
or the wrong kind of salt. When the salt bridges, an empty space forms between the water and the salt.
Then, salt will not dissolve in the water to make brine. Without brine, the resin bed does not regenerate
and you will have hard water.
If the storage tank is full of salt, it is hard to tell if you have a salt bridge. Salt is loose on top, but the
bridge is under it. Take a broom handle, or like tool, hold it next to the water softener, measure the
distance from the floor to the rim of the water softener. Then push the broom handle straight down into
the salt. If a hard object is felt, it’s most likely a salt bridge. Carefully push into the bridge in several
places to break it. Do not use any sharp or pointed objects as you may puncture the brine tank.

Cleaning the Nozzle and Venturi
A clean nozzle and venturi (see Figure 13) is a must for the conditioner to work properly. This small
water softener creates the suction to move brine from the brine tank, into the resin tank. If it should
become plugged with sand, silt, dirt, etc., the conditioner will not work, and you will get hard water.
To get to the nozzle and venturi, remove the top cover. Be sure the water softener is in soft water cycle
(no water pressure at nozzle and venturi). Then, holding the nozzle and venturi housing with one hand,
turn off the cap. Do not lose the o-- ring seal. Lift out the screen support and screen. Then, remove the
nozzle and venturi. Wash the parts in warm, soapy water and rinse in fresh water. If needed, use a small
brush to remove iron or dirt. Do not scratch, misshape, etc., surfaces of the nozzle and venturi. Also,
check and clean the gasket and flow plug(s).
Replace all parts in the correct order. Lubricate the o-- ring seal with silicone grease and locate in
position. Install and tighten the cap, by hand only. Do not overtighten and break the cap or housing.

Recharge the softener several times to reduce water level in the tank. This will also assure that the
softener is completely recharged and ready to provide softened water again. Once the water level in
the tank is about 2” to 3”, you may resume normal use. If the water level does not drop after a couple
of recharges, do the following:
Remove the brine valve assembly from the brinewell and push float stem down. Place opening of brine
valve just under the water and start a recharge. Move the brine valve down with each recharge, until
it rests at the bottom of the tank. Add salt, if needed, and return to normal use.
Brine valve assembly is
inside the brinewell, located
in the salt storage tank.

Automatic Electronic Diagnostics
This water softener has a self-- diagnostic function for the electrical system (except input power and/or
water meter). The water softener monitors electronic components and circuits for correct operation.
If a malfunction occurs, an error code appears in the display.
The troubleshooting chart shows the error codes that could appear, and the possible malfunctions for
each code.
While an error code appears in the display, all buttons are inoperable except the PROGRAM button.
PROGRAM remains operational so the service person can perform the Manual Advance Diagnostics,
see below, to further isolate the problem.
Manual Advance Diagnostics --- Model WHES20
Use the following procedures to advance the water softener through the regeneration cycles to check
