Here’s a screen in there that needs to be cleaned, that can be easily checked, and then the capture snaps in place, flat tip screwdriver, this unit measures gallons and it does it within integrated meter. Well guess what? St Louis locks in place, and then I have the meter on the side of the valve body, just an integrated turbine meter counts gallons. It’s a true inch and a quarter meter, so it’s not gonna, it’s not gonna drop water pressure, anything by flowing through it, and the thing is I didn’t need to break it away from plumbing. Again, low tool demand and that can pull the meter out and check it and make sure that spinning freely in the water line, awesome. Or our meters have been pretty fit right into that space and any bit of grit, any bit of sand that would flow out of it, resonate anything with jam on.

Speaker 1:                           00:53

This one’s got some space around it, so you’re going to be a lot more tolerant of those kinds of things. Again, slips in place. St Luke Looks Nice and easy. Those are some of the things that, again, people out in the field, these are the primary places that they’re just doing their checks at drain line. Brian Line, easily removed, clip in place, easy to service. Those are the primary stops. Now, if I needed to do a full service, it’s five, seven, 10, 12 years down the road and I’m there. Let’s go ahead and I’m going to take it down to nuts and bolts. All right. I’m going to take this out. Down to nuts and bolts down to the bones and show you how. Does anybody ever had to take a valve apart before on the field? Any? Yeah. Do you ever heard stories? It can be challenging, right? Particularly some of those commercial be a headache. I’m going to do this. I’m going to show you how easy this with. So first thing I’m gonna do is pull out the power head juice screws. Two screws hold the clamp in the back. That holds down the power head. So I’ve got two two bolts that are in place. Now I’m going to one more screw on the back that holds the Piston Rod.

Speaker 2:                           02:24

Yeah.

Speaker 1:                           02:27

So three screws, again, flat tip screwdriver,

Speaker 1:                           02:34

our hair comes off very easily, just turns a little bit off the bell. So that’s a power head meter cable disconnects from the body. You don’t have to worry about pulling out the whole meter and everything to get to it. You don’t have to disconnect the meter cable from the control. It all comes off easy. Three screws, little lean out. And then that’s the power of head assembly. The power head does also have the controls with snap right in place. I don’t need a tool at all the to replace those. This is the high end controller. It’s the XDR TB controller.

Speaker 2:                           03:06

You want to talk about your approach to selling that to her forward?

Speaker 1:                           03:10

Well, to be fair, it’s not my approach. Fill it with something that was given to me by a dealer. Their approach, I want to take credit, but I will talk about it. Um, the. So this is the [inaudible] control, did I? Okay. So it’s a touch screen. This is a four hour class on its own. All the stuff that’s in here, relays, inputs, outputs that you can be used. That’s deep dive stuff, but here’s the thing. It’s a touch screen controller, so the touchscreen controller does a couple things. I think the softener pitch in general, historically the softener pitch has always been the flip book. Come in and sit down, hey Mr Mrs so and so, and then you go right to Mrs. So and so and talk about, oh, your towels are going to be. Your hair is going to be great. You’re not going to have to clean the showers. Soft water is going to be great for the household and it’s sort of okay. That’s the pinch. Historically, right? Old Fashion. That’s why people don’t like that stuff, but if I come in and start talking about a touch screen controller, all of a sudden whoever’s there with their, their phone checking emails and stuff goes well, wait a second. That’s kind of an interesting control. I can tell what flow rate I have instantaneously. I’ve got some diagnostic information about.

Speaker 1:                           04:26

I’ve got some diagnostic information about what my daily usage is. Our. I can tell how much water I’ve used it everyday of the week for the last six weeks. I can see if I’ve used more water than I thought I was using. I can see what my peak flow wait was. I can check. I said seven or eight before from my house. I can check on the system when it’s been. So there’s all kinds of intelligence in here as well as if I’m servicing the equipment, I can also go in there and press the, the, the error log and see if I’m there to fix it. I can see what errors have happened over the last six months that had been logged. So there’s a lot of intelligence in their kind of costly. Maybe the person doesn’t know what they’re selling, what they want to buy. What’s up Phil?

Speaker 2:                           05:07

Definitely the leak detection program. The phone numbers for the plumbers,

Speaker 1:                           05:13

the locking capabilities so that way people can play with it. A homeowner’s out. Alright.

Speaker 2:                           05:22

All of that same stuff in like a one step reverse preset. Yeah. He presented the plug it in. It just doesn’t work

Speaker 1:                           05:35

faster programming. So let’s get into master programming. There is a lock screen for the master program. You have to have a code to get in k 12. Oh, one is their code here. Now I’m in master programming, so this is all the steps that are protected from just Joe. Anybody who wants to get in, joe gets a bad rap up. I’m part of the format screen. Part of the master programming, and it loads up when you first plug it into is that you can load in your contact information so the plumber can put it in their company name and their company phone number, company name, and the company phone number as part of the initial load. So it’s their contact information that contact information comes up anytime there’s an error. Anytime there’s an alarm, it comes up on the screen. The homeowner actually has a button on the front too.

Speaker 1:                           06:24

If they want to find out what that contact information is, there’s a little phone receiver they can press and it brings it up as well and it’s attached to that control. There is also a water saver region setting. What that does is it cuts the rinses and the backwash is down so it touches back cuts, the backwash isn’t half and it cuts the rinses down by 60 percent time wise, so it reduces the amount of time that water is going down the drain and you don’t want that to happen every time. So what it says is how often do you want it to do a full region and you program a frequency in there. So it’s like every five, every 10 you do water savers up in between and then on the fifth of the 10th regeneration than it does. It’s full, full. That’s easily programmed inside the format setting.

Speaker 1:                           07:10

Um, there’s other things that are built into this right now that I haven’t been turned on yet. Things that are coming, like chlorine and stuff like that that are also in the controls. So this is going to be the platform that we use. There’s a continuum, there’s a leak alert, call it continuous flow detect. That’s in the meter setting. So for a homeowner, what this does is if they have a, they, if they have a leak in the water treatment system that’s going through the softener, if that softener sees continuous flow rate and you can program in amount of time that it sees it, that it’ll bring up an alarm with a tone that’ll just be generated when it airs out. Okay? So let’s today write anything in the plumbing after the soft because it’s going to be treated water that’s going to be leaking and you can program that detect at a flow rate that it that you want it to at a time period. Oh my God, create this. What does that air sound like? I’m gonna. I’m gonna.

Speaker 2:                           08:09

Make an alarm.

Speaker 1:                           08:13

So what I’ve done, I’ve taken the optical eye out. This is what, this is how it knows that it that the controls in the proper position. So I’m going to take that out. I’m essentially going to simulate that it can’t see where the piston position is. Okay, now I’m going to try and cycle the system.

Speaker 3:                           08:32

Now it doesn’t have any feedback from nowhere. It’s running, it’s working for our next position, has no feedback,

Speaker 1:                           08:54

so there’s the alarm to let you know, so instead of driving that motor and driving that mode or like it gets jammed or if it doesn’t see anything, instead of sitting there and driving the motor and burning it out, it stops and says, hey, something’s wrong. You need to come and look at this and that’s the alarm. That’ll come up for a couple of different things. Stalled motor run on mode or stuff that needs to be paid attention to because it’s things like this that are going to happen in the bowel, is going to be in a cycle step condition and it’s going to be running water down the drain.
