PREFACE

Congratulations on your decision to place your confidence in a superior Hague

Hydro-Clean® water treatment appliance.

Recognized nationwide for built-in quality, dependability, and ease of service, these appliances represent state-of-the-art in home water treatment.

While your appliance should be installed and serviced by a professional

Hague Hydro-Clean dealer, important information is contained in this manual which will help you attain the maximum benefit and enjoyment from your particular model.

We urge you to read this information carefully and review it again at any time a malfunction may occur. In most cases, this review will uncover minor problems that you can correct yourself, thereby saving you time and the expense of an unnecessary service call.

HOW TO GET THE MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY FROM YOUR HYDRO-CLEAN APPLIANCE

1. Maintain salt level (for iron filter, see

Page 6) at least one-third full; solar salt or pellets and purchase a clean grade of salt.

Use one or the other; do not mix pellets and solar salt.

2. Should your electricity be turned off for any reason, more than 16 hours. Reset the time of day according to instructions on page 14.

3. Allow the appliance to regenerate at a time when the water is not being used. If you have more than one appliance, allow two hours between each regeneration.

4. Protect your Hydro-Clean III system, including the drain line, from freezing.

5. Should dirt, sand or large particles be present in your water supply, it is important that you consult your Hague dealer to determine the appropriate treatment method that will eliminate this problem.

6. Bypass the appliance if well, plumbing, or pump work is required, and turn on outside tap until water runs clear before putting the appliance back into service.

Your Hydro-Clean III appliance may be disinfected with 5.25% sodium hypochlorite, which is the active ingredient in household bleach. To disinfect your appliance, add 4 fluid ounces of hypochlorite solution per cubic foot of resin to the brine well of the brine tank. (the brine tank should have water in it to permit the solution to be carried into the softener). Initiate a manual regeneration.

EXAMPLE:

HCIII 25 = 3.2 oz. Chlorine

HCIII 25CX = 4.0 oz. Chlorine

HCIII 35 = 4.4 oz. Chlorine

HCIII 48 = 6.0 oz. Chlorine

HCIII 64 = 8.0 oz. Chlorine

HCIII 105 = 13.2 oz. Chlorine

OPERATIONAL, MAINTENANCE AND

REPLACEMENT REQUIREMENTS ARE

ESSENTIAL FOR THE PRODUCT TO

PERFORM TO SPECIFICATIONS.

1

PRE-INSTALLATION CHECK LIST

1. Water Pressure - Not less than 20 PSI constant for models HCIII-(25, 35, 48, 2TN)

30 psi for HCIII-64, 105 and filters.

2. Service Flow Rate - 5 G.P.M. recommended as minimum, 7 GPM for filters.

3. Drain - Drain the appliance to the floor drain or washer drain. To prevent backsiphoning, the installer must provide an adequate air gap or a siphon break.

4. Electricity - Use standard 110 volt A.C.

(optional 220 volt available).

5. Water Quality - If water supply contains sulfur, bacteria, iron bacteria, tannins, algae, oil, acid, salt or other unusual substances, special equipment must be installed ahead of the Hydro-Clean III system. See pages 5 and 6.

SOME DO'S

1. Do install after the pressure tank and not between the well pump and pressure tank.

2. Do comply with all local plumbing and electrical codes.

3. Do install pressure reducing valve if inlet pressure exceeds 90 PSI.

4. Do examine the inlet line from the pressure tank to appliance on well water with iron (recommended minimum inlet pipe size 3/4" I.D.). On municipal water, recommended minimum inlet pipe size is 1/2" I.D.

5. Do install gravity drain on salt storage tank.

6. Do secure drain line on appliance and at drain outlet.

7. A minimum of 10 feet of 3/4" pipe from the outlet of the water conditioner to the inlet of the hot water heater is recommended.

8. Do install the drain line so that there is a

2" air gap between the drain line and the drain receptacle.

SOME DON'TS

1. Do not install if previous items are not satisfactory.

2. Do not install if incoming or outlet piping water temperature exceeds 120 ºF.

3. Do not allow soldering torch heat to be transferred to valve components or plastic parts.

2

INSTALLATION and START UP

Place the appliance in the desired location.

Turn off the electricity and/or water supply to the water heater. Make sure the inlet, outlet and drain connections meet the applicable local codes. If the appliance has a bypass valve, check the arrows on the bypass valve to be sure the water flows in proper direction. Caution: Do not plumb the appliance in backwards.

The drain hose must be a minimum of 1/2"

I.D. tubing and should make the shortest run to a suitable drain.

Connect the salt tank to the valve head with the flexible 3/8" plastic tube included with the system. Be sure to insert the plastic insert in the end of the tube.

Connect the Overflow Line to the brine tank. If the brine tank is filled with too much water, or if there is a malfunction, an overflow line will direct excess water to drain.

The overflow line must end at a drain that is at least 3" lower than the bottom of the overflow fitting. Maintain a minimum of 2”

(50 mm) air gap.

Attach the drain line. Route the drain line to a floor drain, laundry tub or other suitable waste receptor. Maintain a minimum of 2" (50 mm) air gap between the drain line and the flood level rim of the waste receptor to prevent back siphoning.

Place the appliance in the bypass position and turn on the main water supply. Open the nearest cold water faucet to flush the plumbing of any excess soldering flux, air, or any other foreign material.

Close the faucet and check for leaks. If leaks are found, turn off the main water supply and open the nearest cold water faucet to depressurize the water line.

Close the faucet to eliminate siphoning action.

Repair leaks. Place the bypass in the "service" position. Slowly open the main water supply valve and fill the appliance. Then open the nearest cold water faucet to purge air out of the appliance. Close faucet.

3

Connect transformer power cord to the back of the controller.

Plug in transformer.

Program the Systems Control as outlined on pages 10 - 16.

Add water to the brine tank. Fill to a minimum of 2" above the grid plate. Make sure that the salt dosage is set as recommended for the application. After the first regeneration, the appliance will automatically refill the correct amount of water into the brine tank.

Put appliance into a manual regeneration and inspect for proper operation. Allow the appliance to draw all the water out of the brine cabinet until the air check sets. Then advance to the brine refill position by using the Immediate Recharge or Change &

Select buttons simultaneously (depending on controller). Allow the controller to complete the brine refill sequence of the program and advance to home position. This will replace the necessary volume of water relative to the salt setting.

Fill the brine tank with salt.* Note: Do not mix pellet with solar salt!

* When using potassium chloride as an alternative to sodium chloride, increase the hardness setting by 12%. Note: We do not recommend using potassium chloride when iron is present in the raw water supply.

Open the inlet valve and turn on the electricity to the water heater. To complete the installation, open a cold water tap and allow the appliance to flush for 20 minutes or until approximately 72 gallons have passed through the appliance. Verify flashing light on controller, indicating water flow.

Make sure the bypass valve is left in the

"service" position.

Replace covers.

PARTS ... BRINE VALVE HOUSING ASSEMBLY

23

PARTS ... BYPASS ASSEMBLY

24

PARTS ... BYPASS ASSEMBLY

90246 Bypass Housing: Makes the connection between the plumbing and Main Valve Body. Also, contains the "Hard Water" Blending Valve and

Bypass Piston. The recommended seal for the

1-1/4" male inlet-outlet threads is the plastic

Hook-up Nut (90251), O-ring (90837), and Copper

Adapter (90254). Make sure the O-ring is between the Housing and Copper Adapter. The O-ring seal areas at the Main Valve Body inlet and outlet must to be smooth and free of defects and debris, and lubricated with silicone grease before assembling.

When attaching to the Main Valve Body, put the

O-rings on the male bosses on the Valve Body and push the Bypass into place. A "snap" can be heard when the Bypass slides into place. When released, the Bypass should stay in place; if not, the O-rings may be "pinched." If the O-rings are pinched, replace with new ones. The Bypass comes pre-assembled with the Sensor housing and turbine axle. These are not field serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced with a new assembly. The

Bypass Piston bore is to be smooth and, at the recessed areas, have a smooth transition (no sharp corners) to the seat areas.

90262 Bypass End Cap: Left: Seals the left Piston opening on the Housing (90246). The opening is sealed with an O-ring used as an axial or "face" seal. The O-ring sits in a groove in the End Cap.

This groove must be free of defects such as pits or scratches and also free of debris. When assembling the End Cap to the Housing, care should be taken to make sure that the O-ring stays in the groove in the End Cap. If misaligned, the O-ring can become pinched and leak. Also, on the End Cap is the

Piston Axle, a 1/4" square shaft that acts as a guide/slide and anti-turning mechanism for the

Bypass Piston.

90263 Bypass End Cap- Right: Seals the right

Piston opening on the Housing (90246). The opening is sealed with an O-ring used as an axial or

"face seal. The O-ring sits in a groove in the End

Cap. This groove must be free of defects such as pits or scratches and also free of debris. When assembling the End Cap to the Housing, care should be taken to make sure that the O-ring stays in the groove in the End Cap. If misaligned, the Oring can become pinched and leak. Also, on the

End Cap is the guide/bushing for the Bypass Piston

Drive Shaft. There is an O-ring seal at the opening for the Drive Shaft. This seal area must be free of defects such as pits or scratches and also free of debris.

90218 Bypass Piston Drive Shaft: The Drive Shaft has an acme thread which is used to move the

Piston from "bypass" to "service" position. When operating the Bypass, to achieve either "service" or

'bypass', it is only necessary to turn the Handle

(90221) until the Piston (90616) stops. Additional

25 pressure (torque) will not improve the seal. Once the Piston reaches the stop at either position, it can be backed off up to one half turn of the handle and still achieve a seal.

90616 Bypass Piston Assembly: The white teflon

Hydro-slide O-ring covers should be free of defects such as indentations and cuts. The Piston should move freely into and out of the Bypass Housing without damaging the Hydro-slides. If the Hydroslides catch, tear or crimp, the Housing should be replaced. Note: Some compression will occur when the Hydro-slides pass through the seal areas.

93858 Turbine Sensor Assembly: Picks up the magnetic field from the Turbine and relays it to the

Controller. The three wire assembly connecting the

"black wafer" Hall Effect Sensor to the Controller board must not be severely bent (folded over), cut, or broken. Care should be taken when putting the

Sensor into the Sensor Housing. The "spring" flap below the Sensor must be gently bent over (on top of) the Sensor, and then the Sensor slide all the way into the Sensor Housing. The round hole of the

Sensor mounting tab is then placed down over the mounting screw boss. The cap is then put in place and the mounting screw is installed. A slot is provided in the cap for the wire way to exit. The threewire socket connector must be properly installed in the controller. Stops on the connector prevent improper (upside down) assembly. Do not force the connector past the stops.

90522 Turbine Assembly: The Turbine must have a 1/8" diameter Rare Earth magnet pressed into place adjacent to the axle opening. When assembled to the axle, the Turbine should spin freely. Do not use any lubricants. If the Turbine should become "jammed, clean and flush the Turbine and

Bypass Valve.

90252 Blending Dial Cap: The Cap should be held in place by the three 1/2" screws and be in the proper orientation.

90222 Blending Valve: The valve permits the addition of "hard water" into the soft water outlet. It is closed when pointing toward the Main Valve Body and open when pointing toward the inlet side.

90226 Test Port Valve: The Test Port Valve is used to draw water samples for testing of treated water. Note: The Bypass must be in the "service" position to get an accurate sample. There are two types of seals on the Test Port. One seal is an Oring which seals off the threaded area when the

Valve is opened. The other seal is a compression seal between the Test Port Valve material and the

Right End Cap material. If this seal is "overtightened', it can damage the sealing area on the End

Cap causing a permanent leak.

PARTS ... DRIVE END CAP ASSEMBLY

95301T-JG Drive End Cap: Seals the two openings on the Main Valve Body. The larger diameter opening is sealed with an O-ring used as an axial or "face" seal. The O-ring sits in a groove in the End Cap. This groove must be free of defects such as pits or scratches and also free of debris. The smaller diameter seal is accomplished with an O-ring used as a radial seal. The O-ring should be placed on the male boss on the End Cap. When assembling the End Cap to the Valve Body, care should be taken to make sure the small O-ring is aligned with the opening in the Valve Body and that the large O-ring stays in the groove in the End

Cap. If misaligned, the O-rings can become pinched and leak.

90217 Drive Motor: The Motor is held in place by two 1/2" screws. The screws should be

"snug." The brass pinion gear on the Motor should engage the plastic Drive Gear. The wires should be securely fastened to the

Control.

93216 Piston Slide: The Slide should move freely inside the End Cap Housing. The stainless steel threaded stud should be pointing toward the Valve Body.

93217 Piston Slide Cam: This is the "heart" of the drive system. There is a threaded stainless steel shaft that runs through the main drive axle. The Drive Gear is attached at the short end and the Magnet Disc at the other end. The Slide Cam is assembled inside of the

Piston Slide (93216). This Cam Shaft should turn freely before the Motor is assembled.

93219 Piston Slide Cam Cover: The cover secures the Piston Slide Cam (93217) in place and acts as a bushing for the Cam Shaft.

93238 Drive Gear: The Drive Gear is assembled to the Slide Cam by means of a "keyed" opening which transfers the "torque" generated by the Motor to the rest of the drive system. If the drive system becomes jammed, this opening can become "rounded" causing the gear to turn, but not the Piston Slide Cam. If this occurs, clear the jam and replace the Drive

Gear and Piston Slide Cam (93217).

93514-AJG Brine Valve Assembly: Attaches to the Drive End Cap with two 3/4" thread cutting screws and has one O-ring seal. The Oring is used as a axial or face seal. The O-ring sits in a groove in the brine valve housing.

The groove and the face seal must be free of defects such as pits and scratches or debris.
