Thanks again for your acquisition of your aQuatell water softener showcasing the Streak 5600SXT control valve. This page will take you via the configuration and also shows of your fleck 5600sxt Water Softener. Please adhere to along meticulously!
Your aQuatell water softener delivered with the riser tube (or turbulator) as well as material currently pre-loaded right into the softening storage tank. The container is covered for shipping to make sure that nothing befalls. Step one is to eliminate the plastic cap from the top of the container. Next off, install the upper media screen on the control shutoff, and afterwards screw the control valve into the storage tank:
The salt water line can be discovered by taking the lid off the brine well (the brine well is a 4" size white tube that could be discovered in the brine storage tank). The brine line links the control shutoff to the brine container, which is sometimes referred to as the salt tank. At various stages of the regrowth procedure fresh water is pumped right into the brine tank, and salt water brine is drawn out of the salt water container.
At different stages of the regeneration of your softener, water will certainly be sent to drain. We have to connect a drainpipe line to the Streak 5600SXT control valve for this purpose. The open end of the drainpipe line can be discharged to a couple of different locations (depending on environment and neighborhood pipes code):.
release the drainpipe line outdoors to a swale, lawn, or pit .
discharge to a flooring drainpipe.
connect the drain line directly to a house drain pipeline.
Whatever method is used, there are a variety of things to keep in mind:.
make certain the drainpipe line isn't really kinked, curved, or twisted.
make sure the drain line can not ever ice up.
the open end of the drainpipe line have to be protected otherwise the pressure of releasing water may create it to removal.
if discharging to a flooring drainpipe or other drainpipe, ensure you leave an air space (a splitting up in between completion of the drainpipe tube and also the standing degree of the water).
the drain line could be raised a few feet above the elevation of the softener without harming performance.
Currently attach the bypass valve as well as plumbing adapters. The inlet and electrical outlet of the bypass shutoff are each managed with their very own knob on the bypass. Each knob is classified. The softener remains in 'bypass' setting when both knobs are looked to 'bypass'. The softener is in service mode when both knobs are transformed alongside the outbound as well as inbound water.
Next, link your existing plumbing to the pipes adapters you simply affixed to the bypass. Given that every installation is various it's difficult to provide detailed guideline on how you can plumb your softener to your existing lines. However below are some crucial indicate keep in mind:.
make use of a percentage of teflon tape on threaded fittings.
Make certain the internal diameter is the exact same as your indigenous plumbing material otherwise you could create a bottleneck if utilizing knotted ports or other plumbing helps.
make sure the weight of your plumbing is not being sustained by the softener bypass (safe and secure pipes lines to the wall or ceiling to sustain their weight).
we highly suggest Falcon Flex Connectors if you want to conserve a great deal of effort and time on your setup.
Arrows on the bypass program which side the raw water gets in and also which side the soft water leaves - extremely important to get this!
When the softener is plumbinged system, ensure the bypass is closed (that is, ensure it remains in 'bypass') and then turn on the water to the softener. Split open the bypass shutoff on the water inlet side as well as allow the softener gradually loaded with water. Once it has lots of water, completely open both sides of the bypass so the softener remains in 'solution' setting. The resin in the softener comes ready-to-soften, so your cool water ought to be instantly soft. Considering that the water in your hot water container is not softened, it may take a few days for the hot water to entirely cycle through.
Your softener is currently totally installed, programmed, and prepared to go! You must require a regeneration while you exist to view it, just to make sure every little thing is working correctly and absolutely nothing is dripping. Prior to doing this, add two or three gallons of water to the brine tank. To require a regrowth, press and hold the regeneration switch (four little arrows in the form of a square). When you listen to the electric motor begin to move, launch the switch.
Throughout the 2nd stage, the Salt water Attract (BD) stage, it's crucial to make sure that the water in the salt water storage tank is drawn up. Please enjoy this stage for several mins to guarantee the water level in the brine tank is going down.
As soon as this initial regrowth is full the brine tank will have a measured quantity of water in it. You can now include salt to the salt water container. We obtain asked constantly what type of salt we suggest. As far as we could tell, the performance of a softener has little to do with the type of salt made use of. Basically any salt you can get from the regional hardware shop, big box, grocery store, or filling station will certainly work nicely. Just don't make use of salt licks or salt that's meant for spreading out on walkways. All aQuatell water softeners are suitable with potassium salt.
Rub on your own on the back for a work well done. Currently go appreciate your gorgeous, soft water!
