How To Get The Maximum Efficiency From Your Appliance
CAUTION: If you have purchased the waterBoss® Iron Filter, (Model 97WB-IF) do not add
salt to the cabinet as shown on page 9. Follow the instructions for the iron filter on page 36
of this manual. If you have purchased the 97WB-CF or 97WB-ANF, these are “backwash
only” appliances. Do not add water, salt or any other type of regenerant. Refer to start-up
procedures for these models on pages 35 and 37.
1. Fill salt cabinet when water level is above salt level. DO NOT MIX DIFFERENT TYPES OF
SALT. If iron is present in your water, use a salt with an iron-cleaning additive to help keep
resin clean. You may also use a resin cleaner on a monthly basis in place of salt with cleaning
additives. If iron is not present in your water, a clean pellet, solar or cube type salt is recommended. The use of rock salt is not recommended because it contains impurities that can
plug up the injector assembly.
2. You may use a salt substitute (such as potassium chloride) in place of water conditioner
salt. If you start with water conditioner salt, you can switch to a salt substitute at any time - or
vice versa. If potassium chloride is used in place of nugget or pellet salt, increase your hardness setting by 12% (multiply by 1.12). Do not use Potassium Chloride if there is iron in your
water.
3. Should your electricity be turned off for any reason you must reset the time of day if you
programmed your appliance for delayed regeneration.* (see page 16)
4. Protect your system from freezing, including drain line.
5. By-pass the appliance when servicing the well, plumbing, or pump. When work is completed, turn on the nearest cold water tap until water runs clear before putting appliance back in
service. See figures 4 - 5 - 6.
* Excludes cityBoss ® model.
When calling the HelpLine, please have this guide and the serial number available.
From 8 am to 5 pm EST, call 1-800-437-8993. Your serial number may be found on
top of your valve assembly (See figures 2-3.)

Cycles
Figure 11
Water by-passes your appliance during regeneration to allow iron, sediment, hardness, etc. to
be washed down the drain. After regeneration, waterBoss® returns to service,
providing your home with treated water.
Regeneration cycles:
1. First up-flow backwash. A rapid up-flow of water flushes out the resin bed and
cleans the sediment filter.
2. Brine*. Brine is drawn out of the brine cabinet and up through the media tank,
cleaning the resin bed and releasing accumulated hardness and iron.
3. Slow rinse*. A slow up-flow rinse process then flushes out the brine, hardness and iron.
4. Second up-flow backwash. This up-flow backwash flushes out any remaining brine
solution and sediment from cycle 2.
5. Downflow soft water brine refill. Soft water is directed to the brine cabinet to prepare
the brine for the next regeneration sequence.
6. Return to service. Regeneration is complete and the appliance is returned to normal
operation.
* Does not include 97WB-CF and 97WB-ANF. These fiters backwash only and do not
require any regenerant.

Installation And Start-Up Procedures
Each waterBoss® water conditioner and filter includes two connecting hoses and 8' of
drain line.
1. Placement: Place your waterBoss® appliance in desired location. Turn off electricity and water
supply to water heater. Make sure inlet/outlet and drain connections meet the applicable local
codes. Check arrows on valve to be sure water flows in proper direction. See figures 1, 2, & 3.
CAUTION: DO NOT PLUMB APPLIANCE IN BACKWARD.
2. Drain Line: must be a minimum of 1/2"-5/8” I.D. tubing and should make the shortest run to a
suitable drain. The drain line may be elevated up to 8 feet from the discharge on the appliance as
long as the water pressure in your system is 40 psi or more. If drain line is 25' or longer, increase
drain line to 5/8" I.D. Also, the end of the drain line must be equal in height or lower than the control
valve. See figure 1. All overhead drains for filter installations must be 3/4” I.D.
3. Flushing: Before placing your waterBoss® appliance in service, it is very important to flush the
cold water lines of any debris. Turn on water supply, open the nearest cold water tap and let the
water run for 2 to 3 minutes until the water flows clear. Then put the by-pass in the Service position.
See figures 4 through 6.
4. Check Leaks. Close faucet and check for leaks. If leaks are found, turn off main water supply
and open the nearest cold water faucet to depressurize lines. Close faucet to eliminate siphoning
action. Repair leaks. Turn on water supply and electricity to water heater. Place the bypass valve
in the Service position. See figure 6.
5. Connect Overflow Line. The overflow line must end at a drain that is at least 3" lower than the
bottom of the overflow fitting. It is a gravity line and cannot be run overhead.
See figure 7.
6. Complete The Installation. Open a cold water tap and allow the appliance to flush for 20 minutes
or until approximately 72 gallons has passed through the appliance per NSF
requirements.
7. Plug In Transformer. See figure 8.
When calling the HelpLine, please have this guide and the serial number available.
From 8 am to 5 pm EST, call 1-800-437-8993. Your serial number may be found on
top of your valve assembly (See figures 2-3.)

Installation And Start-Up Procedures
8. Setting Number. For waterBoss® , BigBoss ® , and cityBoss ® for municipally-supplied
water, determine your controller setting number. Do not guess at the setting; continued water
quality problems or damage to the unit could result.
Municipal water - call your local water company to determine your water hardness in
grains
per gallon. This will be your setting number. Or, follow the instructions on the
hardness
test strip provided with your cityBoss ® to determine your hardness
reading. This will be your setting number.
Well water - follow the instructions on the pH and hardness test strips provided with
waterBoss® to determine the pH and hardness of your water.
Iron adjustment : if pH is 7 or above and you know your water has iron, add 15 to
your hardness reading in grains per gallon and enter the result as your setting #.
your
Example: hardness in grains per gallon from test strip is 20 + 15 = 35 = setting #.
This is a temporary setting until you have an accurate water test.
If the result of your hardness test strip reaches the test maximum of 25 grains per
gallon, mix 1 cup tap water with 1 cup distilled water, then retest for hardness. Multiply your
reading x 2 and use this number as your setting number. If the test strip result is
still
25 grains per gallon, call your HelpLine. Or, contact the company below to test for hardness,
iron and pH.
WATERSCREEN
National Testing Laboratories, Inc.
1-800-458-3330 - 9 am - 5 pm EST
modIf you feel you have an abnormal amount of iron, push the powerClean® button for
els waterBoss® and BigBoss ® only. Also, be sure to use salt with an iron-cleaning additive.
Be aware that cityBoss ® for municipally-supplied water is not designed to treat water with
iron. If pH is below 7, refer to acid neutralizing filters, page 41.
9. Adding Water & Salt. Be sure to remove any packaging or installation materials before
adding salt. Next, add not more than 2 gallons of water to the brine cabinet. Then add salt to
the brine cabinet, wait 2 hours then push the immediate recharge button and hold for 5 seconds. A regeneration cycle will begin and continue as follows: BigBoss ® , 37 minutes;
cityBoss ® for municipally-supplied water, 26 minutes; and waterBoss® , 26 minutes. After the
first regeneration, your softener will automatically refill the correct amount of water in the brine
cabinet. See figure 10.
10. Refill Salt when the salt level drops below the water level in the brine cabinet. Always
keep salt above water level. See figure 10
CAUTION! Failure to install, operate and maintain your water treatment
appliance as instructed will VOID the product limited warranty.
NOTE! Make sure the Owner's Limited warranty Card is filled in and mailed
within 30 days of installation. NO POSTAGE REQUIRED.

Setting The 3 Button Controller
DEMAND REGENERATION
You won't have to worry about vacation settings or extra guests because the controller measures
water usage and regenerates based on need. The appliance will regenerate using only the necessary amount of water and salt. If power has been turned off, your appliance will retain programmed
settings indefinitely. See figure 9.
1) ENTERING YOUR SETTING NUMBER
See page 14 for determining your setting number. The water hardness setting number shown in the
digital readout will increase 1 grain each time you push the "SET" button. After 70 grains (90 grains
for BigBoss ®) the read-out will return to 1, and continue to count up from 1 until the display number
matches the hardness number. (See setting conversion chart on page 34 for cityBoss ®) After 5
seconds the display will change to show "gallons remaining (x 100). To recheck the hardness, touch
"SET."
2) GALLONS REMAINING
After setting water hardness, gallons remaining until the next automatic regeneration is shown by
the read-out lights. NOTE: Gallons remaining are in hundreds. 12=1,200 gallons
3) RECHARGE/REGENERATION STATUS
Regeneration cycle numbers are shown during regeneration. The read-out will flash with the cycle
number. The flashing regeneration numbers are:
(01) First Backwash
(02) Brine/Slow Rinse
(03) Second Backwash
(04) Brine Refill
(05) Service
See pages 11 and 12 for cycle descriptions and illustrations
To quickly advance through the regeneration cycles, press and hold the Immediate Recharge button
for 5 seconds. Wait for the cycle to begin, after 20 seconds press and hold the Immediate Recharge
button until the cycle number changes (about 5 seconds.) Each cycle can be advanced in this manner.
4) CONTROLLER STATUS LIGHT
It is normal for the light to blink in the digital readout window. This indicates the controller is operating properly. See page 9.
5) waterMizer
The waterMizer® light will blink whenever water is being used. See figure 9. Does not apply to the
waterBoss® Filters. See separate start up procedures. Pages 35, 36, and 37.
6) IMMEDIATE RECHARGE
To start an immediate regeneration, press The "IMMEDIATE RECHARGE" button and hold for 5
seconds. The Immediate Recharge button is used when starting your water conditioner, to start an
immediate regeneration, or to restore capacity if you have run out of salt. If your waterBoss® has
run out of salt, you may not have soft water available. Remove the salt lid and add salt. Wait two
hours, then press the "IMMEDIATE RECHARGE" button and hold for 5 seconds. See figure 9.
15
Setting The Controller - Continued
7) POWERCLEAN™
The powerClean™ feature is a service/maintenance step for water supplies that have an excessive
amount of iron. Activating this feature is a simple push of the powerClean™ button on the controller.
A yellow light indicates that the powerClean™ feature is activated. The appliance will regenerate
every other day with five pounds of salt. Leave the powerClean™ feature on for a minimum of two
weeks. The frequent regeneration will elimate iron buildup in the resin bed. The use of salt with an
iron cleaning agent or iron out cleaner is recommended for continuous use as a preventive measure
against iron fouling of the resin bed. To deactivate this feature, simply press the powerClean™ button. Use this feature every six months as a part of your routine maintenance procedure to insure a
long service life for your water treatment appliance. See figure 9.
DELAYED REGENERATION*
. . . If you wish to regenerate at a specific time.
NOTE: time is set in military time (EXAMPLE: 2 am = 0200.)
1) Enter Setting Number as described in "Demand Regeneration" procedure.
2) Set current time of day in military time to nearest hour.
-Step A: Press "SET" button.
-Step B: Press Immediate Recharge button (status indicator light on; not blinking.)
-Step C: Press "SET" button until current time of day appears in the display.
Wait until display returns to "Gallons Remaining" - approximately 10 seconds.
Then proceed to set desired time of regeneration. (EXAMPLE: if current time of
day is 4:20 pm, set on 16 which represents 1600 military time.) NOTE: if more than 10
seconds lapse between any of the following steps, the display will return to the start
point which is "Gallons Remaining."
3) Set desired time of regeneration in military time to nearest hour.
- Step A: Press "SET" button.
- Step B: Press Immediate Recharge button 2 times (status indicator light out.)
- Step C: Press "SET" button until desired time of regeneration appears in the display.
After Step C, the display will return to gallons remaining and it is ready for service.
(EXAMPLE: if desired regeneration time is 2:00 am, set on 2 which represents 0200
military time.)
NOTE: if display starts flashing, you have inadvertently held down the Immediate Recharge button
for more than 5 seconds and placed the unit into Immediate Regeneration. Let the appliance finish
the regeneration sequence, or advance through the cycles as previously described in paragraph 3,
page 15.
NOTE: if you desire to return unit to Demand Regeneration when the controller is in Delayed
Regeneration, simply set the time of regeneration to "88" (see Delayed Regeneration, Step 3.)
*cityBoss ® for municipally-supplied water operates on Demand Regeneration only.

Start-Up Procedure
Model 97WB-ANF Acid Neutralizing Filter
Your waterBoss® Acid Neutralizing filter will backwash every two days. This has been preprogrammed for you at the factory and is indicated by the yellow power clean light on the controller. It
is important that this light be on at all times. If you notice that the power clean light is out, simply
push the power clean button to activate the yellow light. All you will have to do is set the time of day
and the desired time of regeneration by following the procedure outlined on page 16 of your installation and service manual. Caution: Set filter regeneration time 2 hours after the softener regeneration
time.
IMPORTANT: Because the 97WB-ANF is capable of elevating a low pH condition in the water, it is
important that the filter be applied within the operating limits outlined on page 41 of your installation
and service manual. Failure to comply with these specifications will cause poor backwash results
and possibly a malfunction of the control valve. Additionally, it will be necessary to add two to five
pounds of the neutralizing media to the filter tank annually. The media slowly dissolves and thereby
corrects the corrosive characteristic of the water. The hardness will increase by two to four grains
per gallon. Check the total hardness of the water after start-up of the neutralizer and set your water
softener accordingly.
INSTALLATION TIP: Before placing this filter in service it will be necessary to backwash the filter to
remove media fines in the filter bed. To backwash the filter, push and hold the immediate recharge
button until the controller indicates cycle 01 (flashing). After 36 minutes, the controller will return to
the service mode and display 03 or 04 (solid). Retest the hardness before the water enters the softener and reset the hardness setting of the softener. The pH value should be adjusted to at least 7.0
after installation.
NOTE: This filter should be installed after the pressure tank or water meter and before the
waterBoss® water softener unless otherwise recommended. (See illustration). A minimum of ¾"
pipe is required for proper function of the filter. It is important to examine the inlet piping to make
sure the pipe is not plugged with iron. If the piping is plugged, it must be cleaned or replaced.
CAUTION: The calcite/corosex media in your unit gradually dissolves as it treats low pH water.
Determine the amount of media in your unit by first depressurizing your unit. Next, remove the fill
plug at the top of your unit. Move a dowel down the fill plug opening until it contacts the calcite/corosex media. Mark the dowel where it is level with the top of the fill plug opening. If the distance
between the mark and the end of the dowel is less than 6", replace the fill plug and place your unit
back in service. If it is more that 8", call your HelpLine for further instructions and to order new calcite/corosex media.
35
Start-Up Procedure
Model 97WB-IF Iron Filter
Your waterBoss® Iron filter will regenerate every three to four days. This has been preprogrammed for
you at the factory. All you will have to do is set the time of day and the desired time of regeneration by following the procedure outlined on page 16 of your installation and service manual. Caution: Set filter
regeneration time 2 hours after the softener regeneration time.
IMPORTANT: Because the 97WB-IF is capable of treating a combination of undesirable constituents in
the water (iron and/or hydrogen sulfide), it is important that the filter be applied within the operating limits
outlined on page 41 of your installation and service manual. Failure to comply with these specifications
will cause poor regeneration results and possibly a malfunction of the control valve.
INSTALLATION TIP: Before placing the filter in service, add three gallons of water to the cabinet. Make
sure the Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) has been thoroughly mixed as indicated below. To start a
regeneration, push and hold the immediate recharge button until the controller indicates cycle 01(flashing). After 33 minutes, the filter will return to service mode and display 03 or 04 (solid).
NOTE: This filter should be installed after the pressure tank or water meter and before the waterBoss®
water softener unless otherwise recommended (See illustration). A minimum ¾" pipe is required for proper function of the filter. It is also important to examine the inlet piping to make sure the pipe is not plugged
with lime or iron. If the piping is plugged, it must be cleaned or replaced.
CAUTION: When adding the Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4), use care when opening the container
and pouring it into the cabinet. Stir the Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) until the color is a dark walnut
and stir every two weeks. Follow the safety precautions on the container.
A three pound bottle of Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) will last approximately three months. Coarse
granular Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) is recommended for this filter appliance (P/N 97804). Fine
granular potassium permanganate can be drawn into the filter as a solid rather than a liquid. For further
operating and handling instructions, refer to the product label on the Potassium Permanganate bottle.
36
Start-Up Procedure
Model 97WB-CF Carbon Filter
Your waterBoss® Carbon filter will backwash every three to four days. This has been preprogrammed for you at the factory. All you will have to do is set the time of day and the desired
time of regeneration by following the procedure outlined on page 16 of your installation and
service manual. Caution: Set filter regeneration time 2 hours after the softener regeneration time.
IMPORTANT: Because the 97WB-CF is capable of treating a combination of undesirable
constituents in the water (chlorine, taste and odor), it is important that the filter be applied
within the operating limits outlined on page 41 of your installation and service manual. Failure
to comply with these specifications will cause poor backwash results and possibly a malfunction of the control valve.
NOTE: This filter should be installed after the pressure tank or water meter and after the
waterBoss® water softener unless otherwise recommended. (See illustration). A
minimum ¾" pipe is required for proper function of the filter. It is also important to examine
the inlet piping to make sure the pipe is not plugged with lime. If the piping is plugged, it must
be cleaned or replaced.
The carbon media in this filter may need to be changed periodically. If you notice
disagreeable tastes and odors returning to your water, call the HelpLine for further instructions and to order new carbon media.

Note: The iron filter operates in the same manner as the waterBoss® Softeners, but with manganese greensand in place of the super fine mesh resin. The filter uses a potassium permangante (KMnO4) solution for
regeneration instead of salt brine. In service, the filter media aids in oxidizing the iron, manganese and/or hydrogen sulfide to a solid particle, trapping it in the filter bed.

automatically reduces iron, Hydrogen Sulfide and iron bacteria.
Install after your water conditioner. waterBoss® Model 97WB-CF Carbon Filter with the activated
