It’s essential to install your new Limetron Hard Water Conditioner in the best possible position, to get optimal results with the water you intend to drink and use in the home.
In this article, we’ll give you two alternatives for installing your Limetron and how to do it.
Illustrated in the video below, we show you how to install the limetron alongside a twin whole-house water filter, a UV light and a magnet. These three are often used in conjunction with the Limetron when treating bore water.
Option 1: Install the Limetron in between the bore and the whole house water filter.
BORE WATER COMES OUT OF THE BORE, PUMPED OUT BY A PUMP.
If you’re pumping bore water straight from the bore, into a water line and straight to the house, ready to be used immediately; you install the Limetron in between the bore and the water filter.
When you run the water through the Limetron, it will open up the molecular structure of the water, change the state of the mineral in the water, and allow the cartridges to collect more sediment out of the water. It also treats the water to stop the calcium and magnesium damage.
Once the water flows out the other side of the water filter, it goes through the UV light. The treatment by the Limetron helps with the calcification and all the white muck that can build up on the UV light, so we want to run the water through the Limetron before the whole house water filter and the UV light.
When NOT to put the Limetron in between the bore and the water filter.
WHEN WOULDN'T WE DO THAT?
- When there are objects in your water that can block up or get stuck in your Limetron. (Leaves, straw, algae, grass, etc.)
- When you’re drawing water from a bore and holding it in a water tank.
Option 2: Install the Limetron AFTER the Whole House Water Filter.
If you think there’s any chance of debris being in your water, you need to pump the water into the whole house system first, letting it go through the sediment cartridge to remove the debris, before going through the Limetron, the UV light and then into the house.
How to Install your Limetron Hardwater Conditioner.
- Take the half-inch Limetron and screw the 3/4-inch bushings onto each end.
- Install the Limetron on the outside of your Whole House Water Filter between the UV light and your Whole House system.
How long does water last after it has been treated by the Limetron?
A DAY AND A HALF.
When the water comes out of the bore and straight into the home through your Whole House Water Filter, you may be holding it in a water tank.
That's a great idea if you've got a tank because time repairs water.
In this case, don’t pump it out of the bore, through the Limetron, and straight into the tank.
Instead, pump the water straight into the tank and give it as much time as possible to let any debris settle.
Once water is ready to move from the tank to the house, the same thing will apply.
If you pump out of the bore, through the Limetron and into the tank, by the time you get to use it, the water will have started to return to its original state, and you won't get the benefits of the Limetron treated water.
