CAR WASHING SOFTENER / DEIONIZER RESIN REFILLS:
FOR USE IN THE "CAR WASHING SOFTENER / DEIONIZER" ONLY (This is the unit with a 3" diameter and the spray nozzle on the exit end).
The brown resin softens the water by removing the calcium and magnesium.
The gold resin removes the TDS (total dissolved solids)giving you spot free/towel free rinse water.
HOW TO REPLACE THE RESIN:
HOW TO REPLACE THE RESIN IN YOUR "SOFTENER/DEIONIZER".
1. Holding the DEIONIZER with a pair of channel lock pliers or a vice, unscrew the large threaded bushing with the female hose fitting on the inlet end using another pair of channel lock pliers or a wrench.
2. Remove the old resin from the SOFTENER/DEIONIZER by dumping it into a trash can or plastic bag and discard..
3. Using a funnel, dump the GOLD replacement resin into a large pitcher and fill with water. Mix and pour into the Softener/Deionizer. Repeat this process with the BROWN resin. The GOLD resin deionizes the water and must be at the exit end (trigger sprayer end) of the SOFTENER/DEIONIZER. The BROWN resin softens the water which must be softened before it is deionized by the GOLD resin.
4. Clean the resin off the threads of the bushing and the SOFTENER/DEIONIZER and re-install the threaded bushing using Teflon tape. Your SOFTENER/DEIONIZER is now ready for use.
Always store your SOFTENER/DEIONIZER with the 3/4" PVC plug installed to prevent the resin inside from drying out which will shorten it's life and keep it from freezing.
