<p><strong>Be sure you to check out our first video in this series, Water Softener Installation 1 - "Where to Install" before proceeding as it has some great information you'll need for installing the <a href="https://thewaterfilterestore.com/products/deluxe-water-softener-27-000-grain?variant=890784099" target="_blank" title="Clack WS1 Water Softener" rel="noopener noreferrer">Clack WS1 Water Softener  </a></strong></p>
<p>1)  <strong>Turn off </strong>the water supply.</p>
<p>2) <strong>Open a water tap</strong> to depressurize the lines.</p>
<p>3) <strong>Cut water line and Connect</strong> to water softener</p>
<p>A. Install supplied tail kit fittings for 3/4-inch copper plumbing, <em>if your plumbing is a different size or is in pex, start with 3/4" copper and then use an adapter</em>.  Assemble the components ahead of time making sure the <em><u>connector is on the pipes before soldering</u></em>, once cool add the o ring and white plastic seal.</p>
<p>B. Attach the water lines to the appliance in compliance with all applicable building, plumbing, and electrical codes. <strong><em>Do NOT over tighten</em></strong> the connections on the bypass, usually hand tight is enough.</p>
<p>C. Check the <em>arrows on the valve to ensure that the water flows in the proper direction</em>. It is very important that you Do NOT plumb your water softener in backward.  </p>
<p>4) The overflow line drains away excess water should the tank over fill due to a malfunction. Make sure that the overflow elbow is in the down position. Connect 1/2-inch I.D. tubing between the overflow fitting and a floor drain, laundry tub, or other suitable waste receptor. Ensure that the <em>overflow line ends at a drain that is at least 3 inches lower than the bottom of the overflow fitting</em>. Maintain a minimum 2-inch air gap. This gravity line cannot be run overhead.</p>
<p>5) The drain line carries away the backwash water as part of the regeneration cycle.</p>
<p>A. Connect the drain line to the drain end cap with a minimum 1/2-inch I.D. tubing.</p>
<p>B. Route the drain line to a floor drain, laundry tub, or other suitable waste receptor. Maintain a minimum 2-inch air gap between the drain line and the flood level rim of the waste receptor to prevent back-siphoning. This drain line should make the shortest run possible.</p>
<p>C. The <strong>drain line may be elevated up to 8 feet</strong> from the discharge on the water softener as long as the water pressure in your system is 40 psi or more.</p>
<p>D. <em>If the drain line is 25 feet or longer, increase the drain line to 3/4-inch I.D.</em> Idealy, the end of the drain line must be equal to or lower in height than the control valve. Caution: <strong>The drain line must not be kinked, crimped, or restricted in any way</strong>.</p>
