Measurements: Your Hamilton Beach water system registers hardness in grains per gallon (gpg). Most water analysis reports register hardness in milligrams per liter (Mg/L) or parts per million (ppm). To convert either Mg/L or ppm to gpg, divide the indicated amount by 17.1.

Example: Water report indicates total hardness of 350 Mg/L, divide this number by 17.1 to get the gpg, which would be 20.4 gpg.

Ion Exchange: Your water conditioning system utilizes ionexchange media, also referred to as resin, to effectively remove hardness ions from the water and replace them with sodium ions. Exhausted resin beads are rinsed with a salt solution called “brine.” This causes the resin to exchange hardness ions for the sodium ions, returning the resin to its sodium state.

Proportionate Brining: Your Hamilton Beach System utilizes an advanced microprocessor to control the amount of regenerant proportionate to the amount of exhausted resin.

It uses enough salt to bring the system back to 100% capacity. The microprocessor also incorporates a variable-reservefeature to enable the system to adjust to patterns of usage, thus maintaining high efficiency.

Homeowner Maintenance

Manual Regeneration

Occasionally you may find it necessary to initiate a manual regeneration. This is done by pressing the [REGEN] button on the front of the display. (See Figure 2.) When you press the [REGEN] button, the control performs a full regeneration of the water conditioner immediately.

In the event the system is allowed to run out of salt, it will be necessary to run “Back to Back” regenerations. This can be done easily by pressing the [REGEN] button one time, waiting at least one minute and pressing the [REGEN] button again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: The second regeneration will begin immediately after the first is completed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Back to Back” regenerations are necessary if full exhaustion occurs due to low regenerate levels or system malfunction. The system works on a highly efficient proportionate-briningmethod. When the system is not aware of the lack of proper regenerate(salt) a larger portion of the resin bed becomes exhausted.

[REGEN] Button

Homeowner Maintenance (Continued)

Calendar Day Override Feature

Hamilton Beach systems have an optional calendar day override feature. The systems come pre-programmedwith this feature turned off. To activate this feature, see Level II Programming instructions. This feature overrides the registered water volume and initiates a regeneration based on the days selected even if there has been 0 water usage registered. This feature is sometimes used if long absences from the home occur. This ensures a freshly regenerated bed of resin and minimizes the chance of resin fouling.

Regeneration:

Salt is used to regenerate the system. Salt pellets are generally cleaner than extra-courserock salt. DO NOT use salt blocks as they may contain vitamins or other undesirable additives.Add salt to the brine tank when it drops to within 12 inches of the bottom.

Dry Brine Tank:

Hamilton Beach Systems use a dry brine tank. Since the system determines the amount of solution necessary to regenerate

the exhausted resin, water is sent to the brine tank as part of the regeneration sequence in an amount proportionate to the exhausted resin that needs to be regenerated.

Note: While it is a dry brine tank, you will see approximately 1” of water in the bottom of the tank during normal service. This amount of water is necessary for the proper function of the brine air-checkassembly. If water amount exceeds this level while in normal service position, refer to the troubleshooting guide; or contact your local authorized Hamilton Beach dealer or qualified plumbing professional

Brine Tank Cleaning:

Insoluble materials gradually build up in the salt tank depending on the levels found in the salt. As a general rule, inspect the brine tank once a year when the salt level is low. To clean the tank, disconnect the brine-lineconnection, rinse out any insolublebuild-up,reconnect thebrine-line,and add one inch of fresh water. Then totally refill the tank with salt.

Setting Time Clock:

Your clock should indicate the current time of day, provided the clock is set correctly. The system will clean at the specified time of regeneration.

Disinfection of Water Conditioners:

The construction materials of the water conditioning system do not contaminate the water supply. However, we recommend that the conditioner be disinfected after installation. Periodic disinfection is recommended for all conditioners. Use the following method of disinfection to clean your system:

Sodium Hypochlorite 5.25%: Sodium Hypochlorite solutions can be used with polystyrene resin, synthetic gel zeolite, greensand, and bentonites and are available under trade names such as Clorox*. Adjust the dosage if stronger commercial solutions are used.

The recommended dosage for a 5.25% depends on your system size. Use the following amount depending on your system model:

Model: SA-HB-40-DB-CERT . . . . .1.5 Fluid ouncesSA-HB-48-DB-CERT . . . . .1.8 Fluid ounces

Add the sodium hypochlorite solution to the brine well of the brine tank. Make sure that the brine tank has water in it so the solution is carried into the conditioner. Proceed with manual regeneration. Refer to the Manual Regeneration section on page 6.

* Clorox is a trademark of the Clorox Co.

Battery Backup Feature:

Your Hamilton Beach system has a battery backup feature. (See Figure 3.) During a power outage the display will be blank but the microprocessor will continue registering water flow. The system will not initiate regeneration during a power outage; instead it will wait until full power returns.

It is recommended the battery be replaced once a year or after any extended power outage. The battery is a standard 9-volt.Detailed instructions can be found in the programming section on page 12 of this manual.

Figure 3: Battery installation for battery backup feature.

Hamilton Beach Owner’s Manual | 7

Manual Bypass Valve / Pre-InstallationCheck List

Manual Bypass Valve(Optional)

Your Hamilton Beach system is equipped with a manual bypass valve. (See Figure 4.) This valve is to be used if you want to stop the flow of water through the equipment but still allow untreated water into your home.

Figure 4: Bypass valve.

For example, a bypass valve may be used if a leak occurs in the system or when the homeowner(s) will be gone from the home for an extended period of time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:

It is recommended that the bypass valve knobs be engaged and disengaged (turned in and out of service) once a year to ensure that the O-ringsare functioning. This allows the bypass valve to turn more freely if it becomes necessary.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pre-InstallationCheck List

The following items should be checked and verified prior to the installation of the equipment. Under certain circumstances, as indicated, additional procedures or pieces of equipment may be recommended.

o Water Pressure Verification:A minimum water pressure of 20 psi is required for normal operation. Maximum water pressure is 120 psi.

o Electrical Requirements:The system includes a 12-volt transformer to be plugged into a standard 110 volt 60 Hz current. If additional cord length is required, a 15 foot extension is available.

(AVP-1000907,see pg. 11)

o Drain-Line Connection: Choose a location close to a drain to put your brine tank. Avoid overhead runs in excess of 25 feet. Drain line must be a minimum of 1⁄2” inside diameter.

Do not use soft vinyl tubing, 3/8” or smaller tubing. Do not expose tubing to freezing.

When barb drain fittings are used, always use a hose clamp to secure the tubing to the fitting. Do not connect the drain line to the overflow line on the salt storage container. Installation of the drain line should be in accordance with all state and local plumbing codes.

o Installation Site: When choosing the proper locations for the equipment, consider the following factors:

Proximity to drain.

Proximity to electrical outlet.

Access to plumbing; it is recommended that when possible both hot and cold water be treated with the exception of outside taps. Kitchen cold is optional. Additional equipment may work better with treated water. Consult your dealer for details and the best option for the application. (See Figure 5.)

o Unpacking System: After removing the system from the box, inspect the system for any concealed damage that may have occurred

in shipping. If damage occurred, contact your dealer for details. Do not install if the system has sustained damage.

General Installation Warnings

The following general warnings should be observed when installation and/or general service maintenance is performed.

Plumbing connections should be done in accordance with state and local plumbing codes.

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.

Drain lines should be 1⁄2” minimum for drain line flows up to 7 gpm. Flows above 7 gpm or runs in excess of 20 feet require 3⁄4” drain line.

WARNING: Never connect drain line directly into a drain, sewer line or trap. Plumbing code requires installation to allow an air gap* between the drain line and the wastewater to prevent the possibility of sewage backsiphoning into the conditioner. (See Figure 6.) Sewage backup can have harmful health effects.

Figure 6: Correctair-gapinstallation.

*Plumbing code air gap is one inch above the flood plane.

All electrical connections must be connected according to local codes. The electrical source must be uninterrupted. Install grounding strap on metal pipes.

Do not use pipe dope or other types of liquid sealants on any threads. Teflon tape must be used on the drain line 3⁄4” threads and also on the 3/8brine-lineconnections.

Note: Factory has teflon taped these fittings.

Use caution if soldering inlet, outlet, or drain lines. Excess heat will damage the control valve and/or bypass valve.

A Brine Tank over-flowline of 1⁄2” ID5/8” OD is recommended for the brine tank. This line should run from the barb fitting on the side of the tank to an unobstructed drain. (See Figure 7.)

Each system comes standard with a high-pressureinjector.* It may be necessary to change the injector (see Figure 8) to match your incoming water pressure. (See Table 2 for injector sizes.)

Start-upRinsing Procedure

Start-UpRinsing Procedure

(Bypass valve is optional)

1.With the plumbing, drain line, and overflow connections completed, slowly open the water supply allowing the lines to pressurize.

Note: The optional bypass should still be in bypass mode as shown in Figure 9.

Outlet

Inlet

 

Figure 9

2.With the control valve unplugged, manually advance the control valve by depressing the drive gear and rotating the main system gear to the purge position. (See Figure 10.)

Figure 10

3.Slowly open the inlet valve (only) on the bypass valve allowing the system to pressurize. It is normal to hear air blowing to the drain during this procedure.

Once the air clears and water begins to run to the drain, open the inlet valve (only) to the full open position and allow the water to run to the drain in purge for a minimum of 20 minutes. (See Figure 11.)

Battery Backup/ Programming the Control Valve

Battery Backup Feature

Your Hamilton Beach softening system has a battery backup feature that allows the control to continue monitoring water flow and maintain the proper time of day during short power outages. The control uses a standard 9-voltbattery (not supplied).

During a power outage, the display will be turned off and the motor will not run, but the control will continue to monitor water flow. If power is out and a regeneration is needed, the regeneration will be delayed until power is restored. If power is lost during the regeneration, the control will resume the regeneration when power is restored.

While batteries may last for over a year, the factory recommends replacing the battery every year. During an interruption in power supply, a typical new 9-voltalkaline battery provides approximately two days of power for the control. Older batteries and those exposed to temperature over 750 F (23.9O C) provide power for shorter periods of time.

The control can be operated without a battery, but the control will not measure water usage or time while the power is off. The control will save all important operating information and programming data during a power outage. No reprogramming is necessary.

Figure 18

Note: It is recommended that the battery be replaced every year or after any extended power outage.

To install a battery:

1.Remove the control valve cover.

2.The battery pocket is located in the upper left corner of the control as shown in Figure 18.

3.Insert the battery, matching up negative and positive posts.

Programming the Control

Valve

You are now ready to continue programming the control. Programming can be done in both Level I and Level II. Accompanying tables are included for selecting the correct settings for each level .

Note: The system has been pre-programmedwith default settings based on model number andultra-highefficiency settings at a water hardness of 15 grains per gallon. While the system may operate with these settings, the following Level I & II settings may need to be changed to meet the actual operating conditions and achieve maximum system capacity and salt efficiency.

Note: If you press and hold either the up or down arrow [#] [$] button for more than 1 second, the flashing number will increase or decrease at ten counts per second.

When the number is correct, press the left arrow [!] button. The far right digit stops flashing and the next digit to the left starts flashing.

You can only change the flashing number. Continue changing numbers until you reach the desired setting. Press the [SET] button. The numbers stop flashing and the control accepts the new setting. After approximately 30 seconds, the control starts alternating the display between Time of Day and Capacity.

Note: If the new setting is not accepted because it was outside the allowable range, the old value will be displayed. Refer to the table guides for the correct settings. (Default settings can be found on Table 6, on page 15.)

Time of Day

Press the [SET] button. The display will show the Time of Day with the minutes digit blinking. If you want to change this number, press the up arrow [#] button to increase the number or the down arrow [$] button to decrease the number.

To skip the number without changing, press the left arrow [!] button. The first number stops flashing and the next number starts flashing. You can only change the flashing number. When you have reached the far left digit, pressing the left arrow [!] button returns you to the far right digit. Continue changing numbers until you reach the desired setting. Press the [SET] button again to enter the value.

Time of Regeneration

The next value displayed is the Time of Regeneration, which is similar to Time of Day programming. It has a default setting of 2:00 a.m. If 2:00 a.m. is acceptable, press the down arrow button [$].

If this is not acceptable, press the [SET] button and change the numbers. Press the [SET] button again to enter the value.

Water Hardness

The next setting displayed is the Water Hardness in grains per gallon(gpg). It is recommended that a water test be performed at the time of installation. This Hamilton Beach is designed to run on one water source. If multiple water sources are used, it will be necessary to change the water hardness settings to match the current water source.

The default setting is 15 grains per gallon of water hardness. If this is not accurate, press the [SET] button and enter a new value. U.S. settings allow any value between 3 and 250 grains

per gallon. Metric settings allow any value between 30 and 2500 milligrams per liter. Press the [SET] button again to enter the new value.

Salt Amount

Capacity is the next value displayed and is expressed in Kilograins (Kgr).

The pre-setdefault values for each model are listed in Table 5. To change these values, press the [SET] button and enter a new value. Any value between 0.1 and 14.0 Kilograins is allowed.

Note: If the calculation for the system capacity exceeds 9999 gallons (99.99 cubic meters) (P5, Capacity, divided by P3, Hardness), the control will display 9999 for capacity until the water usage has dropped the remaining capacity below that number. When water is flowing through the system, the colon in the Time of Day display will blink.

Level II Programming

The Level II programming has been programmed by the manufacturer to the settings in Table 6. The changing of preset values can be done at this time. Refer to Level II programming parameters in Table 6 for options.

Note: It is not recommended that homeowners change these values without checking with localwater-treatmentprofessional for details. Incorrect programming can cause system malfunction and the possible need for a field service call to reprogram the system.System programming is not covered under warranty.

To access Level II programming, simultaneously hold down the up [#] and down [$] arrows. This will allow you to enter Level II settings P6 through P19. (See Table 6.)
