OPERATIONAL THEORY
MAKING BRINE
SALT QUALITY
The Brine Pro™ 2000 brine maker creates precisely
controlled salt brine using an onboard computer
to automatically control the mixing process. Upon
starting the unit with an empty mixing tank, the unit will
open the water intake valve until the waterline covers
the mixing pump intake. Once the unit has reached
this point it will begin to add salt and mix the solution.
The unit will bring the solution to the proper salinity

operation of the unit. Because high quality salt can be
KDUGWR¿QGWKH%ULQH3URLVSURJUDPPHGZLWK
an automatic function that will reverse the auger in an
attempt to free it.
The unit features several standard features to improve
the functionality with non-ideal salt. The unit is
programmed with a Circulate Mode and an automatic
Salt Mizer Mode to reduce the amount of usable but
still undissolved salt in the mixing tank. The unit also
features a vibrator on the hopper to agitate the salt
DQGHQVXUHDFRQVWDQWÀRZWRWKHDXJHU7KHYLEUDWRU
DQG6DOW0L]HU0RGHFDQEHFRQ¿JXUHGWRUXQORQJHU
or shorter to optimize the use of salt in the machine.
For more information see the Operating Modes and
User Controlled Settings sections of this manual.
The Brine Pro 2000 brine maker measures
salinity with an electrical conductivity sensor,
which automatically compensates for the mixture
temperature. For this reason, manual measurements
that do not account for temperature may differ from
the indicated salinity.

• Batch:7KHEULQHPDNHUZLOO¿OOLWVRZQEULQHWDQN
and stop production. The unit will stop production
if the salt hopper is empty.
The Run Limit displays the total amount of brine
the unit will make once the mode is started. This is
typically set to the volume available in an external
holding tank. To enter this value, touch the orange box
and enter the desired volume in gallons (or liters) using
the screen shown below. Press enter to accept the
value and return to the screen above.
• Jog: This mode allows manual control of the
systems normally under computer control: water

auger, and discharge pump.
• Circulate: This mode creates usable brine by
stopping the addition of salt and circulating
fresh water through the mixing tank. Once the
unit reaches the lowest acceptable salinity it
automatically stops brine production. This uses
built-up salt from the mixing tank to optimize brine
production so you can return to normal operation.
Run this mode if salt starts protruding from the
tank or salt can be heard rattling around in the
circulation pump. This is typically run every 7,000
to 15,000 gallons of brine, or as needed — see
"Periodic Maintenance".
The Volume Counter, shown in the yellow box, is
initially set to the Run Limit value and counts down
as brine is created. This shows how much brine the
unit has left to create. The unit will stop creating
brine when this value hits zero and "Auto Run Limit
Reached" will be displayed on the control screen. To
continue operation, or to reset the value at any time,
touch the "RESET" button on this screen.
Emergency Stop Screen
• Salt Mizer (not selectable): This function
operates automatically while in Automatic or Batch
Mode. It continues to produce good brine while
reducing salt build-up in the mixing tank. The
unit will stop adding salt and continue circulation,
adding only fresh water. Normal operation will
resume automatically.
Adjustment to the Salt Mizer function can be made
in User Controlled Settings.
Pressing the "EMERGENCY STOP" button will
turn the system off. To continue making brine, the
emergency stop button must be rotated clockwise
to return to the unpressed position and the screen
touched to clear the "E-STOP ALARM" message.
Turn the system back on by following the instructions
contained in the respective operating mode section.

Manual Pump Priming
NOTE: Before making brine, ensure the mixing
tank drain valve and the transfer valve are closed.
If manual priming is required, follow the steps below.
1.
Fill the mixing tank past the Pump Prime Level
with water or brine (done automatically upon
starting Automatic or Batch mode).
2. Stop the unit and enter Jog mode
3. 5HPRYHWKHSXPSSOXJDQG¿OOWKHFKDPEHUZLWK
water or brine from the mixing tank.
PUMP PRIMING
4. Replace the plug and jog the pump for a few
seconds to remove any air in the circulation
system.
NOTE: Running the pump with no liquid will cause
damage. Make sure the pump is primed before
creating brine.
5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 unit the pump is primed.
The liquid in the mixing tank will begin to
noticeably churn once the pump is primed.
Make sure the circulation pump automatically primes
every time the unit is started with liquid below the
Pump Prime Level shown in the picture below. You
should see churning in the mixing tank by the time
the unit begins to add salt. If the pump does not
automatically prime, stop the unit and manually prime
the pump. Priming the pump is usually not necessary
after all the air has been removed from the circulation
system and the unit is in regular use.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Jog Mode
Circulate Mode
The Jog Mode is used to manually control
sub-systems independently for troubleshooting and
testing. Avoid jogging for extended periods of time as
this mode may affect brine production. For example,
jogging 100 gallons of water into the mixing tank will
dramatically decrease the salinity and may require the
mixing tank be drained before brine production can
continue.
This mode is designed to reduce the amount of usable
salt in the mixing tank. Use this mode if you wish to
manually reduce salt buildup in the mixing tank. For
example if you can hear salt rattling around in the
circulation system, or salt begins to pile above the
brine surface in the mixing tank, run the circulate
mode. A few inches of salt in the mixing tank is
normal, but large amounts of salt in the mixing tank

the desired sub-system. Once the desired subsystem is selected, touch and hold the "JOG" or "JOG
REVERSE" button to turn it on. The sub-system
will function only while the "JOG" button is actively
pressed. Note that if the "SYS" indicator is red, the
main system is not on, and the selected sub-system
will not start.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Auto Discharge Control: Similar to how the
discharge pump functions in Automatic Mode, this
turns the discharge pump on when the unit senses
that the brine tank is full. Once the unit senses that
the brine tank is empty it will resume the circulation
mode and continue brine production repeating the
cycle until all the usable salt in the mixing tank is used
up. While this discharge control is active, the system

NOTE: Use caution as using this mode creates an
unregulated amount of brine and may cause your
H[WHUQDOVWRUDJHWDQNWRRYHUÀRZ
Batch Discharge Control: Similar to how the
discharge pump functions in Batch Mode, this mode
requires you to manually turn on the discharge when
the brine tank is full by pressing the green button to
the left of the DISCHARGE PUMP ON/OFF text. The
discharge pump will continue to run until the brine tank
is emptied. The unit will then shut off the discharge
pump and continue making brine until the brine tank
is full or the unit runs out of usable salt in the mixing
tank.
Vibrator Off Time: The interval the vibrator will be
turned OFF. (Default: 30 seconds).
Vibrator On Time: The interval the vibrator will be
ON. (Default: 10 seconds).
Salt Mizer Water Delay: The counter that starts
after the unit shuts the water off and starts mixing.
Increase to have the Salt Mizer Mode run longer.
(Default: 1 minute).
In Salt Mizer Mode, the unit will stop adding salt and
only add water to continue making brine. Once the
salinity drops, it will stop adding water and continue
to mix the solution causing the salinity to rise again.
When it shuts off the water to begin mixing, it will start
the Salt Mizer Water Delay counter. If the salinity rises
too high, the unit will add more water and the Salt
Mizer Water Delay counter will reset. If there is a large
amount of undissolved salt accumulating in the mixing
tank, consider increasing the Salt Mizer Water Delay
counter.
