How to Soak Your Media Before Installation!
It’s extremely important to pre-soak your media for a minimum of 2 days before installing your whole house filtration system or water softener. Make sure your system is set on a level surface in an area where it can get wet around the tank.
Here’s a step by step process on how to complete this task:
Locate the bypass valve with the red arrows and the 1” PVC elbows. Install bypass valve to head of tank hand tight. Be sure the bypass valve is in the “on” position.
Now install PVC elbow to inlet side.
Locate the hose bib assembly and connect it to the Inlet side. Connect a water hose to the opposite end of the hose bib assembly.
Turn the water on slowly to about halfway on and wait until the water comes out of the outlet side. Disconnect the hose and put the bypass valve in bypass mode, then set tank aside in a safe place for 2 days.
