-How A Water Softener WorksWater hardness is derived from Calcium and Magnesium minerals that have been dissolved into the water under
the earth’s surface. These minerals are found in limestone deposits and are the source of hard water. The amount
of hardness in a given water supply is dependent upon the quantity of Calcium and Magnesium present and the
length of time water has been in contact with them. This can vary dramatically from well-to-well and, for this reason,
a water analysis is imperative in order to determine the proper treatment method. The degree of hardness increases as the concentration of Calcium and Magnesium “ions” increase and is measured in Grains Per Gallon (gpg).
The problem of hard water in the home / business comes to light in many facets of daily use. Water spots and scum
left behind on bathtubs, fixtures and showers; wear and tear on appliances; calcium build-up in hot water heaters
and piping; and, greater amounts of soap and detergents being used are just a few examples.
The modern water softener is designed to reduce hardness ions and their unpleasant side effects. Special resin
beads in the softener mineral tank are used to change hard water into soft water. The surfaces of these beads are
covered with sodium ions. As hard water enters the mineral tank and comes into contact with the resin, an exchange of ions takes place as dissolved Calcium and Magnesium ions cling to the resin surface and sodium ions
take their place, thus softening the water. This process is called Ion Exchange. Over time, the sodium ions used
for the exchange process become depleted and must be replenished.
The water softener provides a Regeneration process whereby brine solution enters the mineral tank, driving-off
the collected hardness ions and replenishes the surface of the resin beads with more sodium ions. This process is
automatically initiated by the control valve on the mineral tank. The regeneration process has five basic cycles as
follows:
1. Backwash - The control valve directs the water flow in a reverse direction through the mineral tank, separating the resin beads and flushing any accumulated particles to a waste drain.
2. Brine & Rinse - In the first part of this cycle, the control valve directs brine solution downward through the
mineral tank, driving-off collected hardness ions and replenishing the resin beads with sodium ions. The second part of the cycle rinses hardness ions and excess brine from the mineral tank to the waste drain.
3. Rapid Rinse - The control valve directs the water flow downward, settling and recompacting the resin bed.
4. Brine Refill - The control valve directs fresh water into the salt compartment to create new brine solution for the next scheduled regeneration.
5. Service - This is the normal “operating” cycle where hard water enters the mineral tank, comes into contact with the resin beads and exchanges hardness ions for sodium ions - the water then becomes “soft” and ready for use.

SIGNATURE 2 SERIES
Installation
-Pre-Installation Check ListA water test should always be performed in order to determine total water hardness (in gpg) and total dissolved iron (in parts per million - ppm). This is critical for proper equipment selection, sizing and for determining
the program for regeneration frequency. If heavy concentrations of iron (above 5 ppm), iron coloration, iron bacteria or sediment are present, filtration prior to the softener will most generally be required. Certain states may
require a licensed plumber for installation.
Note : Flexible water supply connectors and flexible drain line tubing may not be allowed in you locale. Please
check with local plumbing code officials prior to installation.
Installation Requirements
• A level floor position ahead of piping into water heater.
• Unit must be installed at least 10’ ahead of the inlet to a water heater to prevent damage due to
back-up of hot water.
• DO NOT install the unit in an area of direct sunlight or where freezing temperatures may occur!
(See Installation Diagrams for proper placement and plumbing connections.)
• A level floor position ahead of piping into water heater.
• Unit must be installed at least 10’ ahead of the inlet to a water heater to prevent damage due to
back-up of hot water.
• DO NOT install the unit in an area of direct sunlight or where freezing temperatures may occur!
(See Installation Diagrams for proper placement and plumbing connections.)
-Major System Components-
1. Brine Tank - This tank holds the salt that is added to the softener. This salt is dissolved with water to form a brine solution used in the softener regeneration process.
2. Resin Tank - This tank contains the ion exchange resin media. Water flows through the resin tank under pres
sure to come into contact with the resin for water softening.
3. Control Valve - The valve directs water through the resin tank for water softening and controls the flow of
water / brine for the regeneration process.

SIGNATURE 2 SERIES
Installation
-Softener Location / Other Requirements• Locate the unit near an unswitched, 120 volt / 60 Hz grounded electrical outlet.
• Check for distance and proper drain installation (e.g. floor drain, washing machine standpipe).
• Determine type and size of piping required for softener connection (e.g. copper, galvanized, PVC plastic).
Note
• If household plumbing is galvanized and you intend to make the installation with copper (or vise versa), obtain di-electric unions to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion.
• Where the drain line is elevated above the control valve or exceeds 20 feet in length to reach the drain, use 3/4" I.D. drain line tubing instead of 1/2" I.D. Drain line tubing is not included.
• All plumbing lines not requiring “soft” water should be connected “upstream” of the softener.
• The brine tank drain line is gravity flow and must discharge below the overflow fitting.
• The brine overflow is provided as a back-up in the event the safety float shut-off should fail, allowing the brine tank to overfill. This drain connection would then carry the excess water to the drain and prevent flooding of the floor. Therefore, no liability will or can be assumed by the manufacturer of the softener should this occur.
Caution
• If sweat soldering copper pipe (remember to always use lead free solder and flux), cover yoke and bypass valve with wet rags to prevent heat damage to connections and control valve! If using PVC or plastic pipe
primers and solvent cements specifically recommended for use with potable water are required.
• Do not “TEE” to the main drain line from control valve.

SIGNATURE 2 SERIES
Installation
-Installation Procedure- Water Supply Connections and Bypass Valve To allow for softener servicing, swimming pool filling or lawn sprinkling, a manual bypass valve has been installed
at the factory. The bypass allows hard water to be manually routed around the softener.
1. Position softener at desired location for installation. (See Installation Diagrams.)
2. For TS96V, TS128V, MS96V & MS128V Units ONLY - The resin material is shipped separately from the
mineral tank. Remove the valve by unscrewing from center hole. Use a cork or tape to place over top of distributor
tube to prevent material from entering tube while filling. Place funnel in hole. Pour several gallons of water in the
tank.
No gravel is required. Pour in the resin material. Remove funnel and cork or tape from distributor tube. Clean tank threads and fill the mineral tank completely with water. Replace the valve, being careful to position the distributor
tube into the distributor tube pilot hole.
Note : If rebedding an existing unit and the system utilizes a standard tube & basket style distributor, a “D” gravel
underbedding will be required.
3. Turn OFF main water supply and OPEN nearest faucet to relieve pressure.
4. Cut main line and install appropriate elbows and extensions. Inlet and outlet connections on the control valve are 3/4” FNPT. (1” FNPT for TS96V, MS96V, TS128V & MS128V units.)
Caution : Raised arrows located on the sides of control valve body and bypass valve indicate proper direction of water flow. Install inlet and outlet piping in direction of arrows.
6. Rotate bypass valve to the bypass position (position of lever is at right angle to inlet / outlet piping).
7. Turn the main supply line on to restore water service to the home.
8. OPEN nearest faucet to evacuate air and repressurize plumbing lines.
9. Check for leaks!
-Drain Line Connection1. Pull out clip and remove drain line assembly located on the left side of control valve. Remove drain line hose barb and wrap threads with Teflon tape. Reinstall drain line hose barb. Caution : Hand tighten only!!! Replace drain line assembly and reinstall clip.
2. Install 1/2” I.D. drain line tubing (not included) from hose barb to an open drain. A 4” gap between the end of the drain line and the open drain is required to prevent waste water backflow. Keep the drain line as short as possible. An overhead drain line can be used if necessary, but should discharge below the control valve. A syphon trap (taped loop) at the outlet of the drain line is advisable to keep the drain line full and assure correct flow during
regeneration. Elbows or other fittings must be kept at a bare minimum.
Note : Where the drain line is elevated above the control valve or exceeds 20’ in length, 3/4” I.D. drain line tubing
should be used.

SIGNATURE 2 SERIES
Installation
-Brine Line and Overflow Connection1. Position brine tank on a smooth, level surface near the softener resin tank. If necessary, the brine tank can be placed at a higher level than the resin tank, but never at a lower level.
2. Install one end of 3/8" O.D. by 1/4" I.D. brine line tubing (included with unit) to compression fitting located on left side of control valve.
3. Remove brine tank cover.
4. Remove cap from brine well.
5. Insert opposite end of brine line through outer hole in brine tank.
6. Connect brine line to compression fitting on safety brine valve located inside brine well. Replace brine well cap.
7. Install 1/2" I.D. drain line tubing (not included) to the overflow fitting on brine tank located just below the brine line.
8. Run the opposite end of brine tank drain line to a suitable drain.
- Electrical Connection 1.
Connect the power cord and plug power supply into a 115 volt / 60 Hz receptacle.
Note : Do not plug into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull chain that could inadvertently be turned off

Warning : Close valve on bypass prior to selecting the backwash position. After backwash position has been established, slightly open bypass to evacuate air from the media tank. Fully open valve when all air is depleted. This procedure will prevent media from being uplifted into control valve.
2. Advance control valve to BRINE REFILL (cycle 4) position and allow the brine tank to fill just over the salt grid plate.
3. Advance control valve to BRINE & RINSE (cycle 2) and allow the control valve to draw water from the brine tank until it stops. If no draw is observed, check tightness of brine line compression fittings.
4. Advance control valve to RAPID RINSE (cycle 3) position and let run to drain for 3 - 4 minutes.
5. Advance control valve to BRINE TANK REFILL (cycle 4) position and allow the control valve to automatically fill the brine tank.
Note : Control valve will advance to service position automatically.
- Start Up Procedure - Disinfection For disinfection of your unit, please follow the Sani-System Procedure on the back of the packet provided.
- Filling The Brine Tank With Salt To expect a high level of performance and reliability, a salt manufactured specifically for water softeners must be used.
Salt of this grade is virtually free from dirt and other particulates that would eventually cause the softener to malfunction.
A pellet type salt is recommended, although any high quality water softener salt (such as solar salt) will suffice. If iron is
present in raw water, use of iron inhibiting salt is recommended. The salt level will decrease after each regeneration cycle.
Consequently, the salt compartment will need to be checked and replenished periodically.
1. Fill the brine tank or salt compartment with water softener salt as described above. This will be approximately 250
pounds of salt. (150 lbs. for cabinet models.)
Warning : Do not fill salt above level of the brine well.
2. Replace brine tank lid.

Installation
- Final Check 1. Be certain the bypass valve is in the SERVICE position.
2. Make sure the power supply is connected to an uninterrupted 115-volt outlet.
3. Check that the time of day is set
4. Double check regeneration schedule.
5. Make final check for leaks!
6. Fill out warranty card online at www.csiwater.com
7. Leave all manuals with unit.
- Operation, Care and Cleaning When the bypass valve is in the SERVICE position (position of bypass lever is parallel to the inlet / outlet piping), water
is directed through the water softener. Water may be bypassed by turning the lever to the bypass position (position of
bypass lever is at right angles to inlet / outlet piping). Water to the home will bypass the softener and be untreated.
You should manually bypass the softener if :
1. The outside lines do not bypass the water softener and water is to be used for lawn sprinkling or other similar uses.
2. Servicing the water softener.
3. A water leak from the water softener is evident.
4. Shock treating water well and piping with chlorine or other disinfectant.
- Extra Regeneration If soft water demands are unusually heavy, an extra regeneration can be initiated manually :
- To Skip A Regeneration 1. For vacations or extended periods of absence, the power supply can be disconnected from the control valve. It is
recommended that the 9-volt battery be removed.
2. Upon return, plug in cord and reset the time of day. Replace 9-volt battery.
- General Care and Cleaning 1. Do not place heavy or sharp objects on water softener or cabinet.
2. Use only mild soap and warm water to clean exterior of the unit. Never use harsh, abrasive cleaners.
3. Protect the water softener and drain line from freezing.
4. Reset time for daylight saving time periods.
5. Replace 9-volt battery once a year.
6. Inspect and clean the brine tank when sediment appears in the bottom of the salt compartment.
7. Always keep the brine tank supplied with good quality salt, a type designed for use in water softeners.

Control Start-Up Procedures
Normal Operation
1. Home Display
a. Time Clock Softeners -Alternates between the display of Time of Day and Number of Days until the Next Regeneration.
- Days Remaining until the Next Regeneration will count down from the entered
value until it reaches 1 day remaining.
- A Regeneration Cycle will then be initiated at the next designated regeneration time.
b. Metered models alternate the Time of Day and Gallons left until the next
regeneration. The meter will count down to zero (0000) and then regenerate at the scheduled time set.
2. Battery Back-Up (Uses a standard 9-volt alkaline battery.)
Features of Battery Back-Up:
• During power failures, the battery will maintain the time of day as long as the
battery has power. The display is turned off to conserve battery power during
this time. To confirm that the battery is working, press either button and the
display will turn on for five (5) seconds.
• If power failure occurs while system is regenerating, the Signature Series 2
will motor to a shut off position to prevent constant flow to drain. Depending
upon system pressure and other factors, it is possible to observe a reduced flow to drain during this step. After power is restored, the Signature Series 2 will return and finish the cycle where it left off prior to the power interruption.
• When used without battery back-up, during a power failure, the unit stops at its current point in the regeneration position and then restarts at that point when the power is restored. The time will be offset by the increment of time the unit was without power, so it is necessary to reset the time of day on the unit. No other
system will be affected.
