The amount of chlorine depends upon the diameter and depth of your well.
(Generally, use ½ gallon to treat an 8” diameter/80’ deep well and one gallon for
anything larger.) You may contact your State Extension Service or a water
treatment specialist for additional information.
Open hot and cold water taps throughout the house and let the water run until you
detect a chlorine odor. To ensure that the hot water heater is also purged, allow
the hot water to run until the water becomes cold.
Turn off the taps and allow the water to stay in the pipeline for about six hours or
overnight but not more than 36 hours to avoid corrosion.
Open hot and cold water taps throughout the house and let the water run until the
chlorine odor disappears.

Check quartz sleeve for possible cracks. If sleeve is cracked, call distributor for
replacement.
Verify that all electrical connections are correct.
Replace lamp. If problem is solved, resume unit operation.
If lamp still does not light, electrical control box may need to be replaced. Call distributor
for replacement information.
Replace lamp if it is more than 365 days old or nearing the end of its lamp life.
Perform routine maintenance.
Check water quality. If water quality has changed then you may need to install filters or
other disinfection units to ensure that water supply does not exceed recommended
maximum concentration levels (shown in Step 1 of Pre-Installation Instructions).
Verify flow rate using the flow rate table found in the Technical Specifications at the back
of the manual.
The unit will restart automatically and the internal Days counter will be the same as before
the power failure. If the unit has an optional solenoid valve installed, the valve will open 5
minutes after power is restored to the unit.
Upon restart if unit stays in alarm disconnect the power for 30 seconds. Restart the unit
by pressing the reset button within 5 seconds.
Note: The unit is designed for continuous operation. Never connect the unit to a timer or other
device, which will cause the unit to cycle on and off. Excessive cycling of the power will
reduce lamp life.
x Ensure that the unit is assembled and installed correctly. In the case of improper handling
or assembly during installation and/or servicing, the unit will turn off power to the lamp
and display a blank screen.
x Check for damage to the lamp filament elements, quartz sleeve, or electrode connectors.
Applying power to a unit with such damage will cause a blank display screen. Damage
may be caused from shipping, overheating the lamp by operating the unit with no water in
the chamber, introducing debris into the unit from the water source, or improper handling
or assembly during service or installation.
Note: Units with the optional solenoid valve installed will turn off. In most cases, replacing
the lamp, and/or quartz sleeve will return the unit to proper operation. If the unit fails to
resume operation, notify your distributor.
