NOTE: On non-metallic pipes such as PVC or Pex it is more effective to install a single layer coil, please follow the easy instructions detailed below.

SINGLE LAYER COIL INSTRUCTIONS 

Select the location of the coil in the center of a straight section of the pipe before it splits into hot and cold.

Mount the ScaleWatcher on the wall at least 3 feet away from major electric appliances or junctions to avoid external EMF.

Plug one end of the cable in the spring connector

Bring the cable to the coil location, (neatly along wall and pipes)

Install a cable tie

Wrap about 70 to 80 turns (exact number is not important)

Install another cable tie

Go back to 2nd spring connector. (neatly along wall and pipes, trim excess cable and save)

 Plug the ScaleWatcher in wall outlet (110V or 220V automatically detected).

Verify that LEDs are cycling to the top and back.

 Enjoy ScaleWatcher conditioned water. Watch for visible scale to become softer and fall off easily within 2 to 6 weeks.
