Please make sure voltage supply is compatible with unit before installation. CAUTION • • • Do not exceed 120 psi water pressure.Model 5600SE Downflow General Residential Installation Check List Water Pressure A minimum of 25 lbs of water pressure is required for regeneration valve to operate effectively. 4 . Replace piping that has heavy lime and/or iron build-up. Bypass Valves Always provide for the installation of a bypass valve if unit is not equipped with one. Electrical Facilities An uninterrupted alternating current (A/C) supply is required. If piping is clogged with iron. Do not subject unit to freezing conditions. Do not exceed 110°F water temperature. install a separate iron filter unit ahead of the water softener. Location of Softener and Drain Locate the softener close to a clean working drain and connect according to local plumbing codes. Existing Plumbing Condition of existing plumbing should be free from lime and iron buildup.

5 . 7. — Use a 3/4" drain line for backwash flow rates that exceed 7 gpm or length that exceeds 20′ (6 m). 5. NOTE: Only use silicone lubricant. Perform all plumbing according to local plumbing codes. Leave at least 6" (152 mm) between the DLFC and solder joints when soldering pipes that are connected on the DLFC. place in Bypass position. NOTE: Be sure the tank is level and on a firm base. — Use a 1/2" minimum pipe size for the drain. When the valve has power it drives to the In Service position. — Turn on the main water supply. Place the main control valve on tank. fill to the top of the air check in the salt tank. 2. Do not add salt to the brine tank at this time. Place the bypass in the Service position and let water flow into the mineral tank. Place approximately 1" (25 mm) of water above the grid plate. During cold weather it is recommended that the installer warm the valve to room temperature before operating. slowly open a cold water tap nearby and let water run until air is purged from the unit. Lubricate the distributor o-ring seal and tank o-ring seal.Model 5600SE Downflow Valve Installation and Start-up Procedures 1. 12. Plug the valve into an approved power source. — Open a cold soft water tap nearby and let water run a few minutes or until the system is free of foreign material (usually solder) resulting from the installation. 3. 10.) flush with top of each tank.D. Solder joints near the drain must be done before connecting the Drain Line Flow Control fitting (DLFC). Close the water tap when water runs clean. If a grid is not utilized. Failure to do this could cause interior damage to DLFC. 6. On units with a bypass.050 O. Place the softener tank where you want to install the unit. 4. 11. Cut the 1" distributor tube (1. Then close tap. When water flow stops. 8. Be sure the floor under the salt storage tank is clean and level. 9. Use only Teflon tape on the drain fitting.

Add water to the top of the air check. 9 . 5. 2. 3.) Final Setup With proper valve operation verified: 1. NOTE: The air check will check at approximately the midpoint of the screened intake area. Fill the brine tank with salt. the control can now run automatically. Setup is complete. Manually step the valve to the Brine Draw position and allow the valve to draw water from the brine tank until it stops. if used. Manually step the valve to the Brine Refill position and allow the valve to return to the In Service position automatically. With the valve in the Service position. check that there is approximately 1" (25 mm) of water above the grid in the brine tank. 4.Model 5600SE Downflow Control Start-Up Procedures (Cont’d.
