How the system can be installed

The eBoosterTM device should be installed in a vertical position, with water flowing from below; it is advisable to install it within a by‐pass, to allow any maintenance without interrupting the main hydraulic network.
The by‐pass line should be made of PVC, with PVC pressure valves on both the inlet and outlet sides of the eBoosterTM device.

When adding the by-pass line, the installer must also install a valve in the main hydraulic line, to force water through the by-pass line and thus through the device.
It is recommended to also install some form of flow control (flow switch, flowmeter) within the by-pass section, upstream of the eBoosterTM device.
A sampling point (for example a tap) should be installed downstream of the eBoosterTM device to allow water sampling and possible connection to a Chlorine meter.
During installation, please check that all nuts in the eBoosterTM device are tight (looseness of nuts may be due to vibrations during shipment).

The following schematic drawings show examples of installations, on cold and warm water lines:

Cold Water – In-line installation

The installation is ideally done by adding a by-pass line with a PVC pressure pipe and PVC pressure valves.
A flowmeter is installed upstream of the eBoosterTM device, and a sampling point is added downstream of the device to allow sampling and/or connection to a Chlorine meter (optional). The latter, if present, will allow the Control Panel to finely regulate the current in order to guarantee the level of Chlorine required.
When configuring the software, a calibration will be required to provide the Control Panel with information that allows it to vary the current according to the water flow rate, so as to keep the production of Chlorine at values close to those required.

A gas release valve may be installed downstream of the device, at a distance that allows the combination of the microbubbles generated by the electrolytic process, and at a higher point than the rest of the hydraulic circuit.

Cold Water – Use of a storage tank

In the presence of a storage tank, the installation of the eBoosterTM device can be conveniently carried out in such a way as to treat the water inside the tank itself. This allows not only to ensure that the entire volume of water contained in the tank has the desired Chlorine level, but also to operate the appliance in less stressful conditions, by recirculating the water in the tank (since the water treatment is carried out several times, the currents involved can be lower, to the advantage of the life of the device).

The installation requires the presence of a flow switch upstream of the appliance (as a safety measure), and a sampling point to allow connection to a Chlorine meter.

Warm Water – In-line installation

The eBoosterTM device can be used to treat water with temperatures up to 50 °C; this allows installations in warm water circuits (where the water is generally distributed at a temperature between 43 and 45 °C).

Again, the suggested installation includes a by-pass line, a flow switch (as a safety measure), and a sampling point to allow connection to a Chlorine meter.

Since the hydraulic ring containing the warm water is typically kept in (re)circulation by a pump, the water in the circuit is periodically treated by the device. On the one hand, this allows operating with limited currents (see Example 2); on the other hand, it may be necessary to install a valve to vent the gas produced by the electrolytic treatment, which could accumulate in the circuit during periods of non-use of the water.

Alternatively, it is possible to program the operation of the System in certain time slots (for example, it is possible to suspend operation during the night, when water consumption is minimal or zero). Although this solution may appear inappropriate (the water would not be treated during the night), it must also be considered that the circuit is sanitized during the day and that it will have the desired Chlorine level until the programmed shutdown of the System powering the device; it is therefore very unlikely that contamination can occur.

The gas release valve must be installed downstream of the device, at a distance that allows the combination of the microbubbles generated by the electrolytic process, and at a higher point than the rest of the hydraulic circuit.
