a. Confirm your softener is out of bypass (handle should be pulled out):
b. Locate the Brinewell inside your salt tank. It is the 4-inch diameter dark tube with a lid on top. This lid will either pop off or screw off counterclockwise:
c. Pour one bottle of Cleanser down the Brine well tube and replace the lid.
d. Hold the ‘Recharge’ button until the motor kicks on, then let go. This will start a recharge cycle (2 ½ hour duration). A 'Recharge Now' message will continuously flash during the recharge.
