Once a year drain and clean out the brine and holding tanks. A certain amount of sludge will be observed in the
bottom, which is quite normal. This sludge results from slight impurities in the salt, combined with chemical reactions
which occur when Hypochlorite is generated from local water supplies which contain minerals in solution.
End of Season Service: When the equipment is being used in a highly seasonal industry (such as Seafood and
Canning Plants), it must be completely drained and flushed with clean water. The water should then be drained from the
cells, pumps and associated fittings by removing the plugs in the pipe below the water inlet connections. Failure to do
so may result in damage to the plastic components due to freezing or severe abrasion of the circulating pump impeller
due to salt precipitation.
Scale Flushing Procedure:
To remove mineral scale deposits, proceed as follows:
Add approximately 20 gallons of water to the acid tank. Carefully add 5 gallons of muriatic acid to the water.
CAUTION: Always addacid to water not the reverse.
Function Switch in "OFF" position.
Close V-4 Recirculating Pump Valve 50% to reduce the flow through the system.
Close V-2 & V-6.
Brine pump: Remove fuse, or turn off brine pump switch, 6. Close Flowmeter Valves.
Open V-3 to WATER and V-5 to drain. Arrow designates direction of flow.
