THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN OUR PRODUCTS
Hydro Systems manufactures quality chemical proportioners. Please use this equipment carefully and observe all
warnings and cautions.
***************************************************************** NOTE *******************************************************
WEAR
protective clothing and eyewear when dispensing chemicals or other materials.
ALWAYS
observe safety and handling instructions of the chemical manufacturers.
ALWAYS
direct discharge away from you or other persons or into approved containers.
ALWAYS
dispense cleaners and chemicals in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Exercise
CAUTION when maintaining your equipment.
CLEAN
equipment after each use in accordance with instruction sheet.
WEAR
protective clothing and eyewear when working in the vicinity of all chemicals, filling or emptying
equipment or changing metering tips.
ALWAYS
re-assemble equipment according to instruction procedures. Be sure all components are firmly
screwed or latched into position.
ATTACH
only to tap water outlets (85 PSI maximum).
Through proper care and maintenance, this equipment will serve your toughest cleaning jobs.
Installation and Operation:
1. Select a metering tip (see next section), and screw it into the suction stub on the eductor. Slide the open end of
the suction tube through the hole in the center of the mounting bracket (from the bottom), through the bung
adaptor, then slide over the suction stub.
2. Slide end fo discharge tube over the eductor discharge outlet.
3. Remove either the 3/4 or 2-inch bung from an upright drum.
4. Insert the foot valve end of the suction tube into the drum.
5. Swivel the drum adapter several turns in the bung opening until the bracket is secure.
6. Install minimum 1/2-inch ID water hose between the inlet swivel on the HydroMaster and water supply spigot.
(Minimum 25 PSI flowing water pressure is required to operate the HydroMaster.)
7. Turn on water supply. To begin dispensing solution, open ball valve at inlet to unit. Close the valve to stop the flow.
Use the hook on the discharge tube to hang the discharge tube from the drum or HydroMaster when not in use.
Metering Tip Selection:
The final concentration of the dispensed liquid is related to the size of the metering tip opening (orifice), inlet water pressure,
temperature and the viscosity of the liquid being siphoned. For water-thin products, use the chart below as a guideline.
The figures listed below are only approximate. Test the actual dilution you are achieving using the Measurement of
Concentration procedure for best results. Two undrilled, clear tips are supplied for drilling sizes not listed.

Measurement of Concentration
You can determine the dispensed water-to-product ratio for any
metering tip size and product viscosity. All that is required is to
operate the primed dispenser for a minute or so and note two
things: the amount of dispensed water/product mixture, and the
amount of concentrate used in preparation of the solution dispensed. The water-to-product ratio is then calculated as follows:
Dilution (X) = Amount of Mixed Solution — Amount of Concentrate Drawn
Amount of Concentrate Drawn
Dilution ratio, then, equals X parts water to one part concentrate
(X:1). If the test does not yield the desired ratio, choose a different
tip and repeat the test. Alternative methods to this test are 1) pH
(using litmus paper), and 2) titration. Contact your concentrate
supplier for further information on these alternative methods and
the materials required to perform them.
Troubleshooting:
Problem
Cause
1. Unit does not draw
concentrate
a. Clogged foot valve strainer
b. Metering tip orifice
obstructed
c. Water pressure too low
d. Mineral deposits in eductor
2. Water gets into
concentrate container
3. Unit continuously draws
concentrate
Remedy
a. Clean or replace
b. Rinse orifice or replace with new tip
c. Minimum 25 PSI required. Replumb
line or use different source
d. Descale* or replace eductor
a. Heavy mineral deposits in
eductor
b. Faulty or missing foot valve
a. Descale* or replace eductor
b. Repair or replace foot valve
a. End of discharge tube
lower than eductor
a. Always hang discharge tube from
unit using hook provided on end
* Mineral deposits, known as scale, may form at the discharge of the eductor, particularly in hard water
areas. To remove scale, soak the eductor in a descaling or deliming solution. Alternately, the descaling
solution can be siphoned into the eductor by operating the unit with the foot valve in the descaling
solution. After operating the unit in this manner for a minute, put foot valve in clear water and operate
for another minute to flush the unit. Return the foot valve to the concentrate for normal use.
