Installation of Scalewatcher electronic descalers
Do it yourself installation is quick and simple and does not require a plumber or the cutting of pipes.
Step 1: Locate the pipe where your water supply first enters your building.
Step 2: Secure the signal cable with a cable tie (provided), wrap the cable twenty times around the pipe, secure with another cable tie, wrap twenty times going back on top of the existing coil, secure with a cable tie. The finished coil should look as the last image below.
Step 3: Connect the signal cable to the Scalewatcher™ unit and plug into 110 Volt outlet.
NOTE: On non-metallic pipes such as PVC or Pex it is more effective to install a single layer coil, please follow the easy instructions detailed below.
SINGLE LAYER COIL INSTRUCTIONS
Select the location of the coil in the center of a straight section of the pipe before it splits into hot and cold.
Mount the ScaleWatcher on the wall at least 3 feet away from major electric appliances or junctions to avoid external EMF.
Plug one end of the cable in the spring connector
Bring the cable to the coil location, (neatly along wall and pipes)
Install a cable tie
Wrap about 70 to 80 turns (exact number is not important)
Install another cable tie
Go back to 2nd spring connector. (neatly along wall and pipes, trim excess cable and save)
Plug the ScaleWatcher in wall outlet (110V or 220V automatically detected).
Verify that LEDs are cycling to the top and back.
