Model 9000/9100/9500General and Commercial Installation Checklist1. Place the softener tank where you want to install the unit.NOTE: Be sure the tank is level and on a firm base.2. During cold weather it is recommended that the installer warm the valve to room temperature before operating.3. Perform all plumbing according to local plumbing codes.— Use a 1/2" minimum pipe size for the drain.— Use a 3/4" drain line for backwash flow rates that exceed 7 gpm or length that exceeds 20′ (6 m).4. Both tanks must be the same height and diameter and filled with equal amounts of media.5. The distributor tube must be flush with the top of each tank. Cut if necessary. Use only non-aerosol siliconelubricant.6. Lubricate the distributor o-ring seal and tank o-ring seal. Place the main control valve on one tank and the tankadapter on the second tank.NOTE: If required, solder copper tubing for tank interconnection before assembling on the main control valveand tank adapter. Maintain a minimum of 1" distance between tanks on final assembly.7. Solder joints near the drain must be done before connecting the Drain Line Flow Control fitting (DLFC). Leaveat least 6" (152 mm) between the DLFC and solder joints when soldering pipes that are connected on theDLFC. Failure to do this could cause interior damage to DLFC.8. Use only Teflon tape on the drain fitting.9. Be sure the floor under the salt storage tank is clean and level.10. Place approximately 1" (25 mm) of water above the grid plate. If a grid is not utilized, fill to the top of the aircheck in the salt tank. Do not add salt to the brine tank at this time.11. On units with a bypass, place in Bypass position.— Turn on the main water supply.— Open a cold soft water tap nearby and let water run a few minutes or until the system is free of foreignmaterial (usually solder) resulting from the installation. Close the water tap when water runs clean.12. Place the bypass In Service position and let water flow into the mineral tank. When water flow stops, slowlyopen a cold water tap nearby and let water run until air is purged from the unit. Then close tap.Electrical13. Make all electrical connections according to codes. Plug the valve into an approved power source. Do notinsert meter cable into the meter yet.14. Tank one has control valve and tank two has adapter. See Figure 1, page 5 or Figure 2, page 5.15. Look on the right side of the control valve, it has indicators showing which position the control valve is in duringRegeneration and which tank is In Service.— Figure 3, page 7 shows the valve In Service position with tank one supplying conditioned water and tanktwo on standby.NOTE: Make sure the meter cable is not inserted in the meter dome. Swing the timer out to expose theprogram wheel (to swing timer out) grab onto the lower right corner of timer face and pull outward. SeeFigure 5, page 8.6

Turn manual knob so that the micro switch rides on the first set of pins.— In this position the tanks switch (lower piston) and the control valve moves to the backwash position (upperpiston).— Wait until the positioning of upper and lower pistons stops before advancing the timer further. If advancedtoo fast the control will not home into the In Service position (it will not advance to any other position). Tocorrect this, rotate the manual knob back to In Service and start again into backwash.NOTE: Once valve positions itself into the backwash cycle, the homing circuit locks in.17. With all the air backwashed, slowly cycle the timer to the brine position; rapid rinse; and brine tank refill. Waitfor the control drive motor to position itself in each cycle and stop, before advancing on to the next position.18. Once back in the In Service position, cycle the control valve again into the backwash position. The tanksswitch again, and air head backwashes out of the other tank. Cycle the control back to the In Service position.Leave the timer in the open position. DO NOT insert meter cable yet.7

Model 9000/9100/9500pinstorageFigure 5 : Program WheelNOTE: Two motors are available:1/15 RPM has 82 minute Regeneration Time.1/30 RPM has 164 minute Regeneration Time. See Figure 5 .8

Model 9000/9100/9500Regeneration Cycle Program Setting ProcedureSetting the Regeneration Cycle ProgramThe Regeneration cycle program on the water conditioner is preset at the factory. However, portions of the cycle orprogram time may be lengthened or shortened for local conditions or system design.1. Expose cycle program wheel by grasping timer in lower right hand corner and pulling. This releases snapretainer and swings timer to the leftNOTE: Meter cable must be removed from meter dome before opening timer.2. Remove the program wheel by grasping program wheel and squeezing protruding lugs towards center. Liftprogram wheel off timer.— Switch arms may require movement to facilitate removal.3. Return timer to closed position by engaging snap retainer in back plate.— Make certain all electrical wires locate above snap retainer post.Changing Length of the Backwash TimeThe program wheel in Figure 5 is In Service position. Looking at the numbered side of the program wheel, thegroup of pins starting at zero determines the length of time the unit backwashes.Example: If there are six pins in this section, the time of backwash is 12 minutes (2 minutes per pin). Tochange the length of backwash time, add or remove pins as required.— The number of pins multiplied by two equals minutes of backwash.Changing Length of Brine and Rinse TimeThe group of holes between the last pin in the backwash section and the second group of pins determines thelength of time that a unit will brine and rinse (2 minutes per hole).To change the length of brine and rinse time, add or remove pins in the rapid rinse group of pins to increase ordecrease the number of holes in the brine and rinse section.— The number of holes multiplied by two equals minutes of brine and rinse.Changing Length Of Rapid RinseThe second group of pins on the program wheel determines the length of time the water conditioner rapid rinses (2minutes per pin). To change the length of rapid rinse time, add or remove pins at the higher numbered end of thissection as required.— The number of pins multiplied by two equals minutes of rapid rinse.NOTE: Program wheels with 0–82 minute cycle times, use one minute per pin or hole to set Regenerationtimes. The layout of pins and holes on the program wheel follow the same procedure as on this page.Changing Length of Brine Tank Refill TimeThe second group of holes on the program wheel determines the length of time the water conditioner refills thebrine tank (2 minutes per hole).To change the length of refill time, move the two pins at the end of the second group of holes as required.The Regeneration cycle is complete when the two pin set at end of the brine tank refill section trips the outermicro-switch. The program wheel, however, continues to rotate until the inner micro-switch drops into the notch onthe program wheel.9

Model 9000/9100/9500Time Brine Refill and Meter Setting ProcedureProgramming1. The control valve is set at the factory for backwash; brine and slow rinse; rapid rinse and brine tank fill times.Change any of these times by repositioning the pins and holes or adding more pins.NOTE: Two speed timer motors are available1/15 RPM has 82 minute Regeneration Time and each pin or hole equals one minute.1/30 RPM has 164 minute Regeneration Time and each pin or hole equals two minutes.2. The control valve has a separate brine tank fill cycle.— Calculate the desired salt setting using the brine line flow control rate of refill (in gpm) multiplied by thetimer setting. Then, using one gallon of fresh water dissolving approximately 3 lbs salt, calculate the refilltime.Example: A desired 30 lbs salt setting:The unit has a 1.0 gpm refill rate so a 10 gallon fill is required.10 gallons x 3 lbs/gals 30 lbs saltSet the timer refill section at 10 minutes.10 minutes x 1.0 gpm 10 gallon fillNOTE: There must always two pins at the end of a refill time to stop the fill cycle.With the Regeneration times set, place timer back to its original position, making sure the lower righthand corner snaps back into the backplate and the meter cable slides through the backplate and doesnot bind.3. Setting the gallon wheel.Knowing the amount of resin in each tank and the salt setting per Regeneration, calculate the gallonsavailable, using the following capacities as a guide:(capacity per ft3 x ft3 of resin per tank)compensated hardness of H2O gallons availableNOTE: Based on tank size:More resin increases capacity, less resin decreases capacity.More salt increases capacity, less salt decreases capacity.Example:tank diametercompensated hardness 16"35 grains per gal (tested sampleft3 resin (based on flow rate)lbs of salt 4 8capacity per ft3 24,000(24,000 x 4 ft3 of resin per tank)35 grains 2740 gallons available before regenerationDO NOT SET THIS FIGURE - GO TO STEP 4— Because the control valve regenerates with soft water from the other tank, subtract the water used forRegeneration. Take each Regeneration cycle and calculate the water used.10

Model 9000/9100/9500Example: Unit is set for a 16" diameter tank with 4 ft3 of resin and salted at 8 lbs. per ft3, 7 gpm backwash,#3 injector, 1.0 gpm brine refill, and 60 psi and timer set for 10 min. backwash, 60 min. brine andrinse, 10 min. rapid rinse, 10 min. brine tank fill.BackwashBrine and RinseRapid RinseBrine Tank Fill10 minutes x 7.0 gpm 60 minutes x 1.0 gpm 10 minutes x 7.0 gpm 10 minutes x 1.0 gpm 70.0 gallons60.0 gallons70.0 gallons10.0 gallonsTotal Regeneration Water 21-0.0 gallonsWith the 2740 gallons available calculated in Step 3, subtract the Regeneration water used from thetotal water available.2740 gallons available- 210 gallons used (in Regeneration, Step 4)2530 gallons4. Set meter wheel at approximately 2530 gallons. Lift the inner dial of the meter program wheel so that you canrotate it freely. Position the white dot opposite the 2530 gallon setting.NOTE: There is a slight delay between the time the meter zeros out and the cycle starts. Units using the:1/15 RPM motor, 82 minute Regeneration Time has a 9 minute delay1/30 RPM motor, 180 minute Regeneration Time has an 18 minute delay.This delay period is not critical on residential equipment. However, take this factor into considerationfor commercial applications by subtracting continuous flows for 9 minutes or 18 minutes from wateravailable.5. Insert meter cable into meter.6. Check bypass.7. Plug in unit.11
