USING WITH DI ONLY
Our initial design for Check-iT was for DI ONLY systems (note : all DI SYSTEMS can fail without notice, resulting in spots on windows, and unavoidable re-working)
Now, your Operator can take responsibility to check the TDS of his filtered water at any time during every working day, without costing their time, nor changing their normal work practices.
We recommend your Operators simply squeeze CHECK-IT each time before they raise their pole. it is simply 'SQUEEZE'n'READ' to get a reading in ppm.
REACH-iT's 'DRIVE-THRU CAR WASH METHOD':
Our second design for CHECK-iT is for External Window Cleaners using REACH-iT's ‘Drive-Thru Car wash Method’.
The DRIVE-THRU CAR WASH METHOD was developed to solve the high cost of DI RESIN when an Operator is using DI TANKS in HARD WATER AREAS (eg. rural properties with well water). We learnt the magic path by observing that in our local Drive-Thru Carwash, our car is washed with tap water straight from the spigot, and we pay an extra buck for the ‘Spot-Free Rinse’ at the end.
Well - you can clean windows and frames the same way! Follow The RADIAL TECHNIQUE to effect a complete clean of all the windows on the building USING TAP WATER. Now - all the windows are 'clean', except they will have spots on the windows - but it is ONLY from the minerals in the tap water, as the tap water dried.
To remove these spots, simply connect your DI TANKS to your water supply, turn on the water, and wait for the hose and tube to flush the tap water out, and the pure water in, so you can rinse the windows spot free. How do you know if the water at your brush is spot-free?
Now just RINSE THE GLASS with your spot-free rinse - one up-&-down stroke only on any window surface (it may be 203 stroke actions to clean any one window, moving across each window, and from window to window,
In less than 10 seconds per window you will effect a SPOT-FREE RINSE. The DI water will remove the minerals from the tap water, and leave your customers windows wet, but when this water dries, it will dry spot-free.
This method preserves your DI RESIN by using it ONLY for the critical part of the cleaning job - the spot-free rinse phase! 10 SECONDS PER WINDOW!
WHERE TO POSITION CHECK-iT:
We designed CHECK-iT to connect to RHINO or HI-FLO TUBE (any 5/16" (8mm) or 3/8" (10mm) tube). We recommend you locate CHECK-iT just under the brush, secure to your pole, however you can connect it where you choose along the tube.
Battery: CR2450, DC3, 540mA
Power Consumption: 2.5 mA
Operation Temperature: 0-120º F
LED reads ‘parts per million’
Pushfits for 8mm tube, eg. RHINO-TUBE (5/16”).
RED: over 150ppm
TURN ON : Squeeze Check-iT where you see the black dot. It will stay on for 5 seconds, or as long as the TDS reading is changing (think DRIVE-THRU CAR WASH METHOD).
If screen fades or cannot be switched on, pull battery case and replace the battery.
