How do you use the tub clean?


Read these instructions carefully before
beginning the TUB CLEAN cycle.
1
Open the door and remove any clothing in
the wash drum.
2
Open the dispenser drawer.
3
Add liquid chlorine bleach or tub cleaner.
Some powder or tablet tub cleaners which
are manufactured for this purpose can be
used.
(NOTE : Do not add any laundry detergent
or fabric softener to the drawer when using
TUB CLEAN.)
- If using liquid chlorine bleach
Add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach
compartment of the drawer.
(NOTE : Do not exceed the maximum
fill line and do not pour undiluted liquid
bleach directly into the wash drum.)
- If using powder cleaner
Remove the liquid detergent cup and
add powder cleaner to the main wash
compartment of the drawer.
- If using tablet cleaner
Add tablet cleaner to the wash drum
directly.
(NOTE : Do not add tablet cleaner to the
drawer.)
4
Close the drawer and washer door.
5
Select TUB CLEAN and press START.
NOTE : It is recommended that TUB CLEAN
should be repeated monthly.
If mildew or musty smell already exists, run TUB
CLEAN for 3 consecutive weeks.
After TUB CLEAN is complete or when the washer
is not used, leave the washer door open for better
ventilation and drying inside of the washer

Failure at 5 months of use indicates unusually poor quality. I know this is not the answer you want, but I believe you should consider replacing the entire unit with a more durable model such as the Pentair 320 (the industry standard for 20+ years), about $70 . Try hard to stay clear of "economy" equipment. It is very expensive.

We have an Intex above ground pool that takes salt and converts to chlorine. We filled it about a month ago and all was fine for a few weeks, then in the past week the water began turning green. We have...


Intex chlorine generators are very low output generators that fail very often. There is a reason they are so cheap. They do not work well. When using a chlorine generator, it is important to test manually for salts and free available chlorine on a daily basis. Just adding salt because you have a generator will not make your pool manage itself. In order to get the most basic chemistry under control, you need to test for alkalinity, calcium, pH, and free available chlorine.

If you do not have the ability to test these things, spend $10 on a 7 in one test strip that will give you this information.

Note: Chlorine generators have more negative aspects to them than positive. There is not a cost savings as advertised with these units. It actually costs more money, and takes more time to care for. The salt is very corrosive to the pump and filter system as well as the pool itself. The long-time cost would be cheaper to run a chlorine or bromine pool.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Have you checked your water for acid levels to ensure you have enough to maintain your chlorine level? Adding stabilizer (cyanuric acid) helps the chlorine remain in the water longer and if you had to replace much of the water since your chlorine levels were OK you need to add more stabilizer to keep the chlorine in the pool. Have you altered the amount of time the pump runs too? An erosion feeder like yours only adds chlorine when the filter system is running. If you have scaled back the amount of time the equipments runs you will also be adding less chlorine over time than you previously had.

I just bought a PRO45series Fluidmaster to replace a fill valve. in a 1958 American Standard, builder installed, tank type flush toilet. There were no installation instructions in the package to...


The installation instructions are usually printed inside the package. Open the box fully (saves paper) Here is a link to the instructions: https://aruntx.com/conference/kit.pdf
When you say to calibrate the unit, I'm assuming you're referring to adjusting the water level? You can do this by either adjusting the height or the float water level adjustment or both. These are quality trouble free units, I've never had any problems with fluidmaster products. There is a large warning on using Chlorine cleaners (inside the tank) in the instructions. Chlorine cleaners in the bowl are no problem. I've used the tablet type in the tank though without any problem. There would be a problem if the toilet was not used regularly and the tablet continued to dissolve, causing the chlorine level to rise dramatically.

I have a Pentair 320 automatic chlorine feeder. I have filled it with chlorine tabs, but I am still getting a zero reading for chlorine when I test my pool water. Can it be plugged?


It can be but probably isn't. A three inch tab is meant only to maintain your chlorine level. You must first bring the chlorine level up to specs, by adding either liquid or powdered chlorine, than add one or two tabs a week to hold it at that level.

Pentair 320 (inline) clorine not disolving


Three possible solutions, and I have personally made use of all of them with great success.

1. A common reason why the flow of water through the Pentair 320 canister is insufficient to dissolve the chlorine tablets is that the pool filter is dirty or just too old with ingrained sediment. If your pump pressure is continuously running high then this usually indicates a dirty or old filter that is making it difficult for the pump to get an adequate flow of water through the chlorinator. If thoroughly cleaning it makes no difference, treat yourself to a new filter; it's often an immediate fix and the pump pressure drop may amaze you. Old filters that have served their time are deceiving. They may look clean but the fine sediment trapped in their fibers can seriously degrade performance downstream in the chlorinator.

2. Another trick to help SEE what is going on is to replace the short black feeder hose to the Pentair 320 canister with PVC tube, 5/8" outside diameter, 1/2" inside diameter, and a short piece of Pyrex tubing inserted into the middle of the PVC tube to serve as a clear sight glass. PVC tube is rated 100 psi and is readily available at just 50 cents a foot at local hardware stores. Pyrex tube with an outside diameter of 1/2 inch (13 mm) can be bought cut to length for about a dollar per inch from EBay sellers. I also strongly recommend swapping this new feed tube assembly to the UPPER inlet of the chlorinator and moving the plug from there down to the lower inlet. See the attached photo.
You will need an 8 inch and 3 inch length of PVC tube, and a 4 inch length of Pyrex tube. Insert the ends of the Pyrex tube 1/2 inch into each piece of PVC tube with some Goop glue smeared all around the outside of the Pyrex ends. Do not get any Goop inside the Pyrex tube, and do this as quickly as possible, rotating the Pyrex as you insert it into the PVC to ensure that the Goop forms a complete seal. Then let it set, preferably for 24 hours.
Now you have a new feed tube 14 inches long in total, 3 inches of which is the Pyrex sight glass. Just take the unions and spring off the original black hose and transfer them to the new PVC tube, putting the spring on the 8 inch piece of PVC tube. The 3 inch piece of PVC tube should be at the top of the feed where it enters the Pentair control valve.
You will now be able to observe the rate of flow of bubbles in the Pyrex tube (transparent PVC tube soon becomes opaque because of the chlorine but Pyrex remains clear) and know if water is proceeding up the tube and then cascading down over the chlorine tablets. Adjust the Pentair control valve to check if the bubbles speed up and slow down.

3. Lastly, when you open the Pentair 320 to insert new chlorine tablets, the water will normally drain down and out of the canister. IMPORTANT - When you restart the pool pump, keep the cap OFF the canister but have it ready. Assuming you have the Pentair control valve set above 0 (zero) flow, you should soon see water starting to flow through your new PVC feeder tube and then entering and rising up in the canister. When it gets past the top of the chlorine tablets screw the cap on until it feels firm but not cranked hard. If it leaks a little, tighten until that stops. Now you have got rid of that potential air trap that can prevent water rising to completely cover the tablets. Do this EVERY TIME you add new tablets to the canister.80edc77f-aab6-45be-854b-dcd213e89f9c.jpg

He4t - monthly bleach cleaning cycle


Washer Monthly Maintenance Procedure:
This cycle uses higher water volumes in combination with liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washing machine.
  1. remove any clothing or items from washer
  2. CLOSE door (duh)
  3. open dispenser drawer and remove the detergent compartment and set aside. No laundry products will be added at this time. You will be required to add only liquid chlorine bleach at a later step.
  4. For Kenmore Elite HE products press a specific combo of buttons.
  • Select Rinse/Spin program
  • select low spin speed
  • select warm/cold water temp.
  • select 2nd rinse option
  • push the "end of cycle" signal button 4 times within 5 seconds to start the cycle
The machine will fill and run a short sensing cycle. This will take about 3 minutes.

Step 5
  1. The washer will provide 4 short tones. Check the: ESTIMATED TIME REMAINING display for the codes indicated below:
  • if "Ab" (add bleach) displayed in the estimated time remaining window (you'll hear 4 short tones) proceed to Step 6.
  • if "rL" (remove load) displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining window an error tone will sound. The door will unlock.
    -open the door and remove the items from the washer.
    -continue the cycle by pressing the START button.

    NOTE: The water in the unit will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue with another check for items in the washer.

    The machine will fill and run a short cycle to determine whether any items have been left in the washer. This will take approx 3 minutes.

    the washer will repeat Step 5 until it can determine that there are NO items n the washer and will display "Ab" (add bleach).
6. Add liquid chlorine bleach.
  • If using the maintenance procedure for the first time, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.
  • If doing a monthly maintenance procedure, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1/3 cup bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.

    NOTES:
  • Water will be flowing into the dispenser drawer when the bleach is added ... this is normal.
  • Do not add any detergent to this cleaning cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleachw ill cause product damage over time.
7. Once the cleaning cycle has begun, allow the cycle to complete. An est cycle time will appear on the display.

8. After the cleaning cycle is complete, leave the door open, clightly to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

9. Replace the detergent compartment divider.
