If you want your water softener professionally installed, talk to your Sears Salesman. He will arrange for a prompt, quality installation by Sears Authorized Installers.
SEARS INSTALLATION POLICY All installation labor arranged by Sears shall be performed in a neat, workmanlike manner in accordance with generally accepted trade practices. Further, all installations shall comply with all local laws, codes, regulations, and ordinances. [. . . ] When the salt bridges, an empty space forms between the water and salt. Without brine, the resin bed does not regenerate and you will have hard water. If the storage tank is full of salt, it is hard to tell if you have a salt bridge. Hold a broom handle, or like tool, up to the softener as shown in FIG. Make a pencil mark on the handle, 1 or 2 below the top height of the rim, as shown. If a hard object is felt before the pencil mark gets to the top of the tank, it's most likely a salt bridge. Do not try to break the salt bridge by pounding on the outside of the salt tank. 9 SALT BRIDGE

CARE OF YOUR SOFTENER
KEEPING THE WATER SOFTENER CLEAN
NOTE: Never use cleaners having ammonia or abrasives. They may scratch and dull the surface.
COVERS To keep your new Sears water softener looking nice, apply a coat of paste wax and repeat once a year. This small unit moves brine from the salt storage tank to the resin tank during regeneration. If it becomes plugged with sand, silt, dirt, etc. , the softener will not work and you will get hard water. TO HELP YOU SAVE MONEY
If your water softener fails to work, make the following easy checks. Often, you will find what's wrong yourself and you won't have to call and wait for service. If, after making the checks, your softener still does not work right, call your Sears Service Department, or call toll free, number 1-800-426-9345 for telephone assistance. If an error code is not dispIayed, press and hold the SELECT button until (example: 000- -) shows in the display. If any other SR number shows, the softener computer is working on incorrect input and this would probably be the cause of the problem. Then, press SELECT to return a flashing 12:00 AM display, and reset the timer on page 6. PROBLEM
