Control Operation During Regeneration In regeneration, the control will display a special regeneration display. In this display, the control will show the current regeneration step number the valve is advancing to or has reached and the time remaining in that step. The step number displayed will flash until the valve has completed driving into this regeneration step position. Once all regeneration steps have been completed, the valve will return to Service and resume normal operation.
Sizing and Operating Requirements Water Pressure The water system must have a pump big enough to deliver the recommended backwash rate with a minimum pressure at the inlet of the filter of 20 psi (137 kPa). If the existing system cannot do this, it must be upgraded to do so. Whenever possible, the water system should be adjusted to deliver at least 30 psi (206.8 kPa) for even more satisfactory results. Maximum pressure should not exceed 100 psi (689 kPa).
1. Place the iron filter and the chemical feeder container on a flat surface in desired location, near a drain and 120 volt AC outlet. Subjecting your filter to freezing or to water temperatures above 110°F (43°C) will void the warranty. NOTE: Some units are shipped with the media bed in separate bags.
Operating Instructions Figure 3 The valve has been pre-programmed with factory settings as follows: Regeneration Cycle Step Programming 1. Backwash ..................................10 minutes 2. Brine Rinse ..................................50 minutes 3. Rapid Rinse ................................10 minutes 4. Brine Refill ..................................4 minutes Whenever the valve is in Service the current time of day can be set, the control programmed, or an extra regeneration initiated at any time.

Error Codes Note: Error codes appear on the In Service display Error Code Probable Cause Recover and Resetting [Err 0] Drive motor is stalled Unplug the unit from the power source [Err 1] Drive motor is running continuously When power is restored to the unit, the Err _ display code clears. If the condition causing the error has not been resolved the Err _ code reappears in the four digit display. Do not attempt to troubleshoot this problem any further.
To determine the frequency of regeneration, use this procedure: Setting the Frequency of Automatic Regeneration (SXT Models) Please enter the ppm of compensated iron per gallon of water to be removed. See Step #4 of “User Programming.” The SXT valve will automatically calculate the number of gallons of water to be treated by the iron filter between regenerations.
Manual Regeneration Cycle If you run out of filtered water because of inadequate regeneration frequency, inadequate reserve capacity, power failure or unusually high water usage, you can initiate a manual regeneration simply by pressing the extra cycle button. The filter will now automatically complete a regeneration cycle and return to service. If possible, avoid water use during the regeneration cycle.
The unit is shipped fully tested and assembled and weighs approximately 7 lbs.
Operating Instructions Sounds You will notice new sounds as your filter operates such as the hum of the timer or click of the actuator arm. During regeneration, it will not be uncommon to hear the sounds of water running to the drain. Manual Bypass (Figure 4) In case of an emergency you can isolate your water filter from the water supply using the bypass valve located at the back of the control. OUTLET In normal operation the bypass is open with the ON/OFF knobs in line with the INLET and OUTLET pipes.
Trouble Shooting Guide PROBLEM 1. Filter fails to regenerate or regenerates at wrong times 2. Filter bleeds iron or odor 3. Filter regenerates every day 4. Iron filter uses too much chemical 5. Loss of water pressure 6. Loss of media through line CAUSE CORRECTION A. Electrical service to unit has been interrupted B. Timer is defective C. Power failure D. Timer motor does not run A. Bypass valve is open B. Container is depleted C. Excessive water usage A.
PROBLEM 7. Iron filter fails to draw chemical 8. Drain flows continuously 9. Pink color (potassium permanganate) present after regeneration; medicinal water taste CAUSE CORRECTION A. Drain line flow control is A. Clean drain line flow control plugged B. Injectors and/or screen plugged B. Clean or replace injectors and/or screen C. Line pressure is too low C. Maintain line pressure at 20 psi (139.9 kPa) minimum D. Internal control leak D. Change seals and spacers and/or piston assembly A.
