SALT MONITOR SYSTEM
The faceplate timer has a low salt monitor with an
indicator lightto remind you to refill the storagetank
with salt. To set this monitor system:
1. Lift the salt hole cover and level the salt in the
storage tank(press tanklight buttonto lightinside
2. The salt level decal, on the brinewell inside the
tank, has numbers from 0 to 8 (see drawing on
page 9 and below). Observe the number the
leveled salt is at or closest to.
3. Now, press the SALT LEVEL ADJUST button
until black bars display up to the salt level
number. For example, the pictures below show
the salt level at 6.
4. Finally, set the level you want the low salt
indicator light to come on. Press the SIGNAL
LIGHT ADJUST button until a (T) shows oppo-
site this number. In the example below, the light
willcome on whenthe storedsalt dropsto level2.
At level 2, the storage tank is about 1/3 full. This
is the lowest you should allow the stored salt
level to drop to. To turn the salt monitor off,
press the button until OFF shows.
For accurate salt monitor operation, always use
nugget or pellet water softener salt. See page 9. If
potassium chloride is used, be sure to adjust the
timer to the KCl setting on page 7.
