Whether you are moving your softener to a new location or performing maintenance, you'll want to depressurize the unit before you disconnect it from your plumbing. Follow our steps below for the best practice.
1. Bypass the water softener by pushing the handle in on the back of your unit. This will stop water from coming in or out of the softener while you work:
2. Depressurize your unit by running a Recharge cycle. Hold the Recharge button until you hear the motor starts to spin, and then release. You will see ‘Recharge Now’ or ‘Recharging’ flashing on the screen.
3. To speed up the cycles, press the Recharge button once each time the motor stops spinning. Repeat this until the ‘Recharge Now’ or ‘Recharging’ disappears from the screen.
4. You can now gently pull one side of the black plastic c-clip away from the softener, and slowly roll it towards the other side of the c-clip to remove.
a. If the clips are still not easy to remove, they may be bound because the system is not completely level. Slowly and gently rock the softener back and forth slightly while applying pressure to the c-clip as
described above to free them:
5. Pull your softener forward and away from the Bypass assembly.
