The Uni-Match® water feeder is available in either 24 or
120 volt and all models feature a manual feed button.
Field selectable dwell/feed cycles allow condensate to
return to the boiler before feeding, lessening the chance
the boiler will be overfed or flood.

• Before using this product, read and understand instructions.
NG
WARNI
• Save these instructions for future reference.
• All work must be performed by qualified personnel trained in the proper application, installlation, and maintenance of plumbing, steam, and electrical equipment and/or systems in
accordance with all applicable codes and ordinances.
• To prevent electrical shock, turn off the electrical power before making electrical connections.
• Boiler manufacturer schematics should always be followed. In the event that the boiler
manufacturer’s schematic does not exist, or is not available from the boiler manufacturer,
refer to the schematics provided in this document.
• To prevent water damage check to make sure there is adequate floor drainage capacity.
Check all components in the system to insure that they will not leak in the event of an
overfeed condition.
• After installation, check for proper operation of all of the limit and operating controls,
before leaving the site.
Failure to follow this warning could cause property damage, personal injury or death.

The water feeder has a DIP type switch block with
four on/off switches. Each switch has a specific
dwell/feed cycle which is activated upon receiving
a signal from the LWCO. The feeder will be deactivated when the LWCO is satisfied or if the
dwell/feed period has been exceeded.

Dwell/Feed Cycle Limit
The feeder will stop feeding water whenever the

and the LWCO is still sending a signal.
STEP 1 - Installation
1 a. Control must be installed within eyesight of boiler.
b. Clearance must be provided on all sides to
service control.
c. Unit must be installed in a horizontal pipe
in an upright position.
d. Arrow on feeder must point in the
direction of flow into the boiler.
e. Install isolation valves and unions on the
inlet and outlet piping for easier trouble
shooting and repair/replacement.
f. Install manual fill valve and bypass line for
removal while the boiler is in service.
2. Water feeders are shipped from the factory equipped
for a 2 gpm feed rate. A separate kit with instruction
sheet and field installable orifices for 1 gpm and 4 gpm
feed rates is included. If the alternate feed rates are
required, refer to the instruction sheet provided with the
kit for orifice replacement.

WARNING
IMPORTANT
To prevent electrical shock, turn off the
electrical power before making electrical
connections.
Failure to follow this warning could cause
property damage, personal injury or death.
Boiler manufacturer schematics should be followed. In
the event that the boiler manufacturer's schematic does
not exist, or is not available from the boiler manufacturer,
refer to the schematics provided in this document.
Terminal Connections
For all wire connections to the terminal block (M).
1. Strip about 1/3" (8.5 mm) of insulation from the wire.
2. Loosen the terminal screw (N) but DO NOT
REMOVE. Move the wire clamping plate (P) back
until the plate touches the back side of the screw head.
3. Insert the stripped end of the wire under the wire
clamping plate (P) and securely tighten the
terminal screw (N).
Unless otherwise noted, water feeder voltage should be
the same as the LWCO and burner circuit voltage.
NOTE
NOTE
Before wiring water feeder, operate boiler and check all
safety devices.

NOTE
WARNING
Do not use automatic water feeders with manual reset
LWCO's. Failure to follow this warning could cause
flooding, property damage, personal injury or death.
N
Wire must be 18 AWG (min) or as required by local code.
Wire insulation rating must be at least 167˚F (75˚C)

STEP 3 - Testing
a. Open the inlet valve (X) and the outlet
valve (Y). Check for any leakage.
If there are any leaky connections, close
the inlet and outlet valves and correct
the problem.
b. Turn the boiler’s electric power on and fill
it to the manufacturer's recommended
normal water level by depressing the red
manual feed button (Z) on the water
feeder.

c. Check the water feeder (B) operation by performing the following steps:
1. Slowly drain water from the boiler.
2. The burner should turn off when the water level drops below the cut-off level of the LWCO, which
will activate the water feeder's delay feed cycle.
!
WARNING
If burner does not turn off when water level falls below level of LWCO, turn
off power to boiler and check operation of LWCO.
3. Feeder should turn on to feed water to boiler after delay period has expired.
NOTE: Delay period is determined by position of selector. Unit is shipped
with switch in Position 2. Refer to chart on page 8 for alternate settings.
4. Feeder will be deactivated when water level is restored to level as determined by LWCO.
NOTE: McDonnell & Miller Series PS LWCO's have a 15 second DOM (Delay on Make) to restore
water level in boiler to an appropriate level without overfeeding. Consult other manufacturer's LWCO
installation literature for DOM times.
5. Repeat steps to ensure feeder is operating satisfactorily.

Upon receiving a signal from LWCO (power to terminal ‘W’) the multi-color LED will indicate the status
of the feeder.

Switch Selection Guidelines
#1 – Should only be used with a float type LWCO such as the M&M Series 67.
#2 – Satisfactory for most residential steam boiler applications.
#3 – Shorter initial dwell period suggested for smaller 3 or 4 section boilers.
#4 – Longer initial dwell period suggested for a period of time immediately after initial boiler installation.
STEP 4 - Troubleshooting
If the unit fails to feed water as required, perform the following diagnostic checks:
1. Recheck all wiring to ensure proper connections, as specified in these instructions.
2. Check to insure that the integral strainer is clean and free of debris and sediment.
3. Check to ensure proper operation of low water cut-off controls connected to water feeder.
MAINTENANCE
SCHEDULE:
• Inspect the water feeder annually. Replace it if it is worn, corroded, or if components no longer operate
properly.
• Replace the water feeder every 10 years. More frequent replacement may be required when severe
conditions exist such as rapid switch cycling and surging water levels.
• Disassemble and carefully clean strainer screen once per heating season.
