Cleaning of Deionized Water Filter and Operation

Assuming Air is set up. see bottom of page for details

Take the post filter out when you first put new Media in the canister.

Dump MIXED BED MATERIAL into tank (need sand type and amount here)

Hook up water hose to front end BLUE

Set up a bucket to catch the water

Plug it in and Run the system for a bit

The Green Light means it is making Deionized water.

after a couple of gallons has gone through pour some into a smaller container to test

Place the TDS meter in the water. it must be all zeros before we can use it. it may take several gallons before it gets down.

once we are at zeros then replace the particle filter and we are ready to use.

if the filter is already in use and is till “Green Light” then disregard these instructions other than checking the filters.

PAINTED surfaces

PREP THE PART
SAND

if a part is already painted then wet sand with 800 grit making sure to get the shine out. no dimples or orange peel

the smoother the part the better the chrome

Artisan uses Resin to make smooth. if we resined a part it is already smooth enough

DEGREASE

use any WATER or Solvent BASED paint degreaser. DON’T TOUCH with bare fingers once you have touched. it will leave a fingerprint

use sanding block to keep flat

Orange peel (Little shiny holes)

if you don’t degrease you will get FISH EYES
