I Safety First

This manual is to guide the purchaser, designated installer, systems professional, or user through the steps required to install safely and effectively the Puradon radon removal system from North East Environmental Products, Inc. (NEEP). Please read this entire manual before attempting to install or service the Puradon. If you are not the person who will install the unit, give these instructions to a qualified installer. The installation procedures have been written in sequence. Do not skip any steps or attempt short cuts. Please follow the procedures carefully, and check with your local authority regarding necessary permits, permissions, and code requirements before beginning the installation procedure. We suggest that the Puradon be installed by a plumber, contractor, or competent handyperson . If you require further information or clarification, please call your Puradon representative. SAFETY SHOULD BE YOUR PRIME OBJECTIVE. CAREFULLY FOLLOW ALL THE STEPS IN THIS MANUAL. WORK SLOWLY AND STEADILY IN ORDER TO AVOID INJURY.

II Installation

Overview The Puradon process removes more than 90% to 95% of the radon from the wellwater when the wellpump runs and when the Puradon pump recirculates water to the house and pressure tank. The Puradon and optional pressure tank (sold separately) are installed after the existing wellpump and its pressure tank, and after any other water softeners or filters. Operating in response to demand from the house (typically less than one hour per day for the average needs of a four-person family), the Puradon delivers up to 6 GPM (gallons per minute) to the household. The Puradon requires a water supply of 7 GPM from the wellpump, well within the ability of the typical wellpump. Additional requirements and options An additional pressure tank with a drawdown of at least 4 gallons is required at the Puradon outlet. A bypass valve and a filter are highly recommended. The bypass can be a single bypass valve, or three standard valves configured to function as a bypass. The bypass allows the Puradon to be isolated from the household water supply for service or repair, or for high flowrate untreated water. A filter placed on the water supply line leading to the Puradon will help prevent the solenoid valve and eductor jets from being fouled with particulate matter. If the homeowner wants higher flowrates for water use outside of the residence (i.e., for car washing or lawn & garden watering) where treatment for radon is not necessary, a separate water line from the existing pressure tank to the exterior faucets may be considered. See Figure 1 for an overview of a typical system installation. Determine Wellpump Flow Rate This step will determine the size of the required flow restrictor. The standard unit is equipped with a 6 GPM outlet flow restrictor. The wellpump should produce more than 6 GPM. If not, the Puradon may run dry and possible minor damage may result. A consequent lower GPM output from the Puradon will require replacement of the flow restrictor. Consult NEEP for replacement flow restrictor. You will need the following in order to determine the flowrate: - a garden hose - 2 five-gallon buckets - a watch with a second hand - a calculator, paper, and pencil It is important that there be no water demands on the wellpump during this test. Turn off all faucets, sprinklers, hoses, etc., and inform others that you are about to begin a flowrate test. 1. 2. Connect a garden hose to the house pressure tank drain valve. Open the drain valve and drain the water into the buckets.

3. When the pressure switch turns the electric wellpump on at its low setpoint, immediately close the drain valve and let the pump fill the pressure tank with water. 4. 5. Once the tank is full, wait until the pressure switch turns the pump off. Empty the water from the buckets.

6. With your watch in hand, open the drain valve and collect all the discharged water in the buckets until the pump turns on. Immediately close the drain valve and begin timing the pump cycle.


Keep timing until the pump turns off; note the elapsed time in seconds.

8. Measure the volume of water (gallons) in the buckets. This is the "drawdown" volume rating for the existing pressure tank. 9. 10. Divide the number of gallons collected in #6 by the number of seconds. Multiply the answer by 60 to convert to minutes. This gives the pump's capacity in GPM.

For example: Number of gallons collected in #6 = 9 gallons Number of seconds in #7 -72 seconds Flow rate (in gallons per minute, GPM) = (gallons collected/ seconds in cycle) X 60 GPM = (9/72) X 60 GPM = 0.125 X 60 GPM = 7.5 It may be prudent to complete the above exercise twice and average the results. Prepare the Site The Puradon unit must be vented in order for it to operate. Before beginning work, ensure that the proposed vent installation location has clear access to the exterior, and that the length of the 3/4"diameter vent line will not exceed 10 feet. Please refer to Figure 2 to determine an appropriate location for the vent line exit point. The Puradon must be placed on a firm and level footing. A concrete slab is ideal. The Puradon weighs approximately 300 pounds when installed and full of water. The unit requires a dedicated 115 volt, 15 amp circuit breaker protected electrical outlet. If one does not exist within 8 feet of the proposed installation site, have one installed. Position System Components Position the new pressure tank next to the Puradon. (Refer to Figure 1) Plumb the pressure tank to the 3/4" outlet on the top of the Puradon as shown. Shut Down Power and Water Supply Shut down the power and water service to the wellpump circuit in the following order: 1. Shut off electrical power to the existing wellpump.

2. Shut off the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the existing wellpump circuit. Test with a voltmeter to be sure that the power is off. 3. 4. Close inlet and outlet valves on the hot water heater and shut off its energy source (if applicable). Shut off the main water supply from the existing pressure tank to the house.

SAFETY FIRST! Failure to complete the above four steps and disconnect all power supplies to the wellpump system could cause serious injury or damage to property. Plumb Unit Identify the water supply beginning at the existing pressure tank. Ensure that the existing wellpump has been turned off, then drain the water supply line. When the water ceases to flow, cut the outlet pipe at the existing pressure tank, and plumb to the Water Inlet Connection on the Puradon (or the bypass if used). Plumb from the Puradon Water Outlet Connection to the building main water supply line (or the bypass if used). Check your work.

Connect Electrical Supply See Figure 3 for a diagram of the electrical system. If a dedicated 115 volt, 15 amp circuit breaker protected outlet is not available within 8 feet of the Puradon, have one installed. Install Vent Line. Please refer to Figure 2 before beginning the vent line installation. If the unit is being installed in a house under construction, it is imperative that a vent line be routed to the exterior of the house. Do not hook the vent line into a sanitary waste vent line. Vent line material should be minimum of 3/4" hose for the first 10' and 1 1/2" PVC pipe for the rest of the run. Use as short a run as possible. Larger vent line piping may be used if desired. Some local codes may require the vent pipe to terminate above the roof. Otherwise the vent termination can be placed at or near ground level. Care must be taken not to place termination in a location that could be blocked by snow or leaves. Also it should not be placed near a door, window, or other opening that would allow reintroduction of radon into the living space. Consult the illustration in Figure 2 for a typical installation example. Install a vent screen in the outlet of the vent line. Install Overflow Line In the rare event that the solenoid valve or float switch should fail, causing the unit to over fill, an overflow is provided to direct the flow to a safe discharge point. Run a 3/4"diameter line to the nearest drain or outside the house. The vertical rise in this line must not exceed 8 feet. Do not hook the overflow line into a sanitary waste vent line. Install a screen in the outlet of the overflow line. Testing Proceed with system start-up (next section). Once the system is started up, take water samples for testing.

III Start Up

Wellpump Power On Check the water supply, then turn on the house wellpump electrical power switch. Wait until the building has water pressure and check your plumbing connections for leaks. Fix any leaks before continuing. Open the hot water heater inlet and outlet valves (if applicable) and turn the power to the water heater on. Bring the Puradon On-Line Plug the power cord provided with the Puradon into the 115 volt outlet. This will open the solenoid valve and allow water to enter the Puradon. Once the Puradon is full, the level switch (internal float) will signal the solenoid valve to close. This will take approximately 3-4 minutes. Start the Puradon Pump The Puradon has a pressure switch with a low water pressure cut-off. When the water pressure in the system is less than 30 pounds per square inch on the gauge (psig), the pressure switch will shut off the pump. This is a safety feature that prevents damage to the pump in the event that there is not enough water entering the pump. On the side of the pressure switch is a small metal lever. Pull the end of the lever forward until the pump motor starts. Hold the lever forward until the discharge pressure is above 30 psig, then release it. The pump will build up pressure in the pressure tank until it reaches the shut off pressure of 60 psig.

Once the pressure gauge reaches 60 psig and the pump shuts off, open one or two faucets and allow the system to run for approximately 15 minutes. Looks good? Turn off all the house faucets and check your work for leaks and neatness. System Disinfection Remove the vent line hose from the air stripper tank. Pour 1/2 cup of household bleach (or other water system disinfectant) into the air stripper tank. Open a faucet in the house and run it until the smell of chlorine is clearly noticeable. Instruct the homeowner not to drink the water until the chlorine smell is gone. The chlorinated water should stay in the system for approximately 12 hours. After that, the water should be run continuously until the chlorine smell is gone. System Check Return to the site and test the system's performance. Take samples of treated and untreated water and submit them for radon testing by a qualified testing laboratory.

IV Operating Sequence

Under normal operating conditions, the following control sequence is followed: 1. 2. 3. Pressure in the new pressure tank should be 60 psig for a typical 40-60 on/off pressure switch setting. Use of approximately 7 gallons of water will drop the system pressure to 40 psig. The new pressure switch turns on and starts the Puradon pump.

4. Water is pumped from the Puradon to the pressure tank, and is then available for use by the home water system. Water continues to be pumped until the new pressure switch turns off the pump at the 60 psig setting. During this time, approximately 6 GPM of water recirculates through eductor #2 inside the Puradon. 5. As water is transferred from the Puradon, the water level drops to the low-level setting. The low level switch then opens the solenoid valve and allows water from the wellpump to flow through eductor #1 and back into the Puradon. 6. When the water use in the building stops, the water pressure in the new pressure tank will rise to 60 psig and the new pressure switch will shut the Puradon pump off. 7. After the pump shuts off, the water level in the Puradon will rise until the high water level position is reached. The high level switch will then close the inlet solenoid valve, shutting off water flow from the wellpump.

V Maintenance

The Puradon has been carefully designed and constructed. In order to ensure years of trouble-free operation, the following maintenance procedures should be followed. Six Month Check Step 1 Test Water Quality Take samples of treated and untreated water and submit them for radon testing by a qualified testing laboratory. Step 2 Check the Following: - Check all plumbing joints for leaks - Check the vent line - Check integrity of other custom water treatment equipment

- Check the solenoid and water level switch for proper operation - Check cycling operation and water pressure Step 3 Disinfect Pour 1/2 cup of household bleach in the vent line connection on the Puradon tank. Reattach the vent line. Follow system disinfection procedure in Start-up section above. Annual Check Step 1 (Same Again) - Repeat the six month check Step 2 Replace air filter - Remove and replace the air filter on the top of the Puradon. Five Year Check - Perform this check every five years. Pay special attention to the plumbing, the electrical connections, and the general integrity of the system. Step 1 Perform the Six Month and Annual Checks Step 2 Replace the Solenoid Valve - Turn off the electrical power before replacing the solenoid. Step 3 Replace All Hoses

VI Troubleshooting Guide

The following guide lists the most common potential problems encountered with a Puradon installation. If you require assistance, please call your installer. Problem: Poor Radon removal Step 1 - Check Vent Line The vent must be at least 3/4" inch diameter polyurethane tubing or PVC pipe for the first 10', and 1 1/2" or greater diameter PVC pipe for the rest of the run. The total vent line length must be less than 100 feet. Be sure that the vent line is not kinked, damaged, or blocked. Check the outlet screen for blockage. Step 2 - Check Air Filters Inspect the air filter. If it is dirty or plugged, replace the filter element. Problem: Air in Water Step 1 - Check Well Water Flow Rate Turn to Step 1 of the installation procedure and determine the flow rate. If the water flow rate is less than 6 gpm you may be pulling more water out of the Puradon than the wellpump can supply. Install a smaller Puradon discharge flow restrictor.

Step 2 - Check for Leaks Check all fittings. Tighten or replace fittings where necessary. Problem: Low Water Flow Step 1 - Check for Obstructions. Inspect all plumbing lines and joints between the pump discharge and the pressure tank; specifically inspect the solenoid valve and flow restrictor. Problem: Pump Malfunction If the system will not start after a power outage or system malfunction, perform the following steps. Step 1 - Check Pump Change valve(s) to by-pass position. This allows water to flow directly from your pressure tank to the house, bypassing the Puradon. Return to the Start-Up section of the manual and restart the system. Problem: Pump Quits, House Requires Water Step 1 - Check Flow Rate If there is an inadequate flow rate, correct as you would for air in water. Step 2 - Check Plumbing Check air pressure precharge in the pressure tank; refer to the pressure tank owner's manual for instructions. Step 3 - Check Electrical Circuit Check the house circuit breaker or fuse that protects the Puradon. Reset or replace as needed. Problem: System will not start Step 1 - Check Pump See Problem: Pump Malfunction above; perform the steps, then return here. Step 2 - Check Fuses Check the circuit breaker or fuse that protects the Puradon. Step 3 - Power Failure Restart the system by lifting the pump pressure switch lever (on the top of the Puradon) to the Start position. Release once the pump is running. Problem: Solenoid Valve Does Not Operate Water will not flow into the Puradon if the solenoid valve malfunctions. Refer to the solenoid valve cutsheet. Inspect the float switch operation by removing latch ring and cover. Lift and drop the switch, listen for solenoid operation. Note that the float switch must be approximately 7 inches below the high water level before it will reset.

FORM M4 ONLY--Low water or loss of system pressure will cause pump to cut off. After fault in system has been corrected, move lever to "start" and hold until pressure builds up enough to keep contacts closed. FORMA M4 SOLAMENTE--Un bajo nivel de agua o una pérdida de presión en el sistema hará que se desconecte la bomba. Después de haber corregido la falla del sistema, mueva la palanca a "arranque" y sosténgala hasta que la presión aumente lo suficiente para mantener los contactos cerrados. FORME M4 SEULEMENT--Un bas niveau d'eau ou la perte de pression du système causera l'arrêt de la pompe. Après avoir corrigé le problème du système, amener le levier sur «démarrage» et le laisser jusqu'à ce que la pression ait suffisamment augmenté pour maintenir les contacts fermés.

-2FORM G5 ONLY--An illuminated pilot light indicates closed contacts, placing line voltage at the switch load terminals. The indicator lamp is a neon type and may not light at voltages below 100 V. FORMA G5 SOLAMENTE--Una lámpara piloto encendida indica que están cerrados los contactos, lo cual aplica tensión de línea en las terminales de carga del interruptor. La lámpara indicadora es de neón y tal vez no se encienda en tensiones inferiores a 100 V. FORME G5 SEULEMENT--Une lampe témoin allumée indique que les contacts sont fermés, ce qui amène la tension de ligne aux bornes de charge de l'interrupteur. Le voyant est de type néon et peut ne pas s'allumer à des tensions inférieures à 100 V.
