*** INSTALLATION ***
* You want to follow the "Replace Media" directions ( steps 6 - 10 ):
And at STEP 8, since the IN & OUT head ( MD1400 ) is not a "Valve", you'll want to connect the head in reverse after putting the gravel and carbon into the tank.This is to "backwash" the Carbon and Gravel "dust" from the media before putting into "Service" to the house.
Connect your water source to the side of the Head marked "UPFLOW INLET", and slowly turn the water on, and let it flow in reverse ( flow in then down through the carbon via the "Upflow Inlet" side and flowing out the "DOWNFLOW INLET" ) for about 10 minutes ( until water turns from BLACK to CLEAR ).
Then you are ready to connect in the NORMAL direction.
IN will be the DOWNFLOW INLET.and
OUT will be the UPFLOW INLET.You can connect and run the water with or without the included BY PASS ( V3006 ) option.Once you have "washed" the carbon and gravel media,you are ready to attach your piping to your water lines.
And this unit should be installed BEFORE the Water Softener.
