    Lay tank on side
    Flush resin out with garden hose

    With the WaterBoss, I would not lay it on it's side. This is a tank in tank system. You may end up getting resin the the brine tank or causing the media tank to get out of place. I suggust using a shop vac. If you do not have a shop vac, you will need to remove the media tank from the brine tank then lay it on it's side and pour the resin out.

    I assumed he would take the media tank out of the brine tank........but then, maybe not LOL. I haven't had good luck with the vacuum method. It always leaves enough rain in the tank that I have to flush it anyway.

    Is it hard to remove the media tank? Is there somewhere I can download instructions?
