How to start up a Rainsoft Gold Series conditioner unit

 
 
Reply Tue 24 Mar, 2009 06:59 pm
The rainsoft Gold water conditioner came with the house when we purchased it, and we just noticed that the softener never regenerated because it was not plugged in. So, when we plugged it in, water started flowing continuously out of the drain tubes. The letter P showed up on the display, and then 6:14 and then 3:12 and then 3:11. The unit will not respond to pressing any of the buttons on the display. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? What should I expect when the unit is plugged in? There is no manual or instructions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

@Theresa Wright,
Unplug it and put it on bypass.

Provide your email and I will send you the operators manual.

@H2O MAN,
Hello. We ran into the same thing (bought house with Rainsoft Gold Series, plugged it in and it seemed to run continuously, etc). Would you please email me the Operators/Set-up, etc manual too? My email address is [email protected]. Thanks!

@awharton221,
Are you sure it's not just regenerating? Water pouring out of the drain tube is part of the process that takes 1-2 hours. I bought a used one that did the same thing, but eventually it stopped and now works great.

Why are the setup "codes" in the installers menu such a secret? Is it only so you are forced to pay for a service call even for minor adjustments? That's pitiful!
I've had my unit for 23 years and updated it to the Gold Series computerized head a few years ago. I need to make a minor adjustment. Can you please share the codes and what each means?

Thanks

@H2O MAN,
Hello H2O Man,

I just purchased a used Rainsoft gold series water treatment system. This one has the square salt tank, and two fiberglass tanks. I believe the first tank is a carbon filter, and the second tank which has the control head on top of it is the softener.

I have been researching all over on how to set it up and set the hardness level. I keep finding threads that ask you to email people a pdf that tells how to access the secret gold raindrop button menu which allows you to set the hardness among other things. Do you still have access to this and if so could you email it to me? My email address is [email protected]

The model # for my unit is QRS 844 SH
Serial # is 515430
manufacturer date is 01/13/03

Thank you,

Mike

@pcharlee,
Their will be a small rain drop at the front of the control unit, press and hold, and at the same time push the enter button. This will allow you to change the settings.

I have had a rainsoft AQC 75 and my softener started sound like it was regenerating all the time. The sound over the days got louder and louder. Water bill came in and it was 3 times higher than normal. So I turned the bypass valve and turned it off. Do you have the operators manual? I'm trying to figure out what is causing the softener to be so loud. my email is [email protected]

We just bought a house with the rain soft gold series. We have never had a water conditioning system before and have no idea of where to start with this system. The seller is not an option as she has been difficult throughout the buying process. Any assistance would be appreciated. [email protected]
Thanks!
