    Hi Pro`s
    I just installed a water softener, i do not know how set this up at first time when i started it it spits lots of water thru drain pipe.
    Not sure weather it is normal so i stopped it.

    Sorry, out of the office all day. I will try to post it for you in the morning.

    Congrats on the new system!

    And, what color is the injector, and the BLFC size? The BLFC should be indicated by the sticker on the injector assembly. Also confirm the DLFC button size, and what is your water temperature?
