Getting things ready - Unpacking II

Float switch
Figure 4
  1. Remove the rubber band from the float switch (fig. 4). Be very careful not to dislodge the float or twist the body of the switch as this might cause the seal to leak. The float switch is used as a safety switch to control the recirculation pump. The magnetic drive pump must not be allowed to run dry. The float switch is connected to a relay that breaks the AC line if the solution level drops below the center of the switch. The Contacts in the switch are intended pilot (low current) application only. Never try to control the pump or heater directly with this float switch.
  2. Set the anode hanger plate into place with the ribs facing down into the tank. The sparger riser pipe should feed through the 5/8" dia. hole in the plate. Set the air-supply elbow fitting into place on top of the riser and press down while twisting the air hose back and forth. The riser will seat itself into the fitting.

    Do not glue the fitting in place, as it may need to be removed if the system ever needs service.

  3. Set the anode baskets into the anode hanger plate but do not connect to the anode buss (bar connecting the anode baskets). It will be necessary to remove the baskets one final time so leave them free for now.
