Assembly and Set Up
Place the TNT system so that the water inlet and Filter housing labeled #1 is on your left, because the water in our system flows from left to right. NOTE: This is very important so that the filters are installed in the proper sequence to assure your system works the way it was designed.
Using the housing wrench (included) loosen, unscrew and remove all 4 filter housings. You may need to flip the wrench over in order to loosen the filter housings. NOTE: After removing the housings, look inside each filter housing and near the top edge you will see a black “O” ring. Be sure this “O” ring is seated properly to make a good watertight seal when you reinstall these housings.
Take all four filters out of the box which are labeled #1-4. This is the order (from left to right) in which they will be installed. NOTE: Each filter should only be unwrapped as you install the filter inside the housing.
Unwrap filter labeled #1 - At the top, it has a white rubber gasket, that looks like a large washer. Make sure the gasket is seated properly. Place this filter inside the filter housing labeled #1 and install the housing on your TNT system by screwing it into the position furthest to the left (See Video Above). Before you hand tighten check that the Black O-ring is greased and seated properly, then snug it up with the housing wrench. DO NOT over tighten or it may be a problem to remove in the future.
The next step is called “purging”. Hook up your garden hose to the water inlet. With only the #1 filter housing installed, turn the water supply on for 2-5 seconds, then turn off. Repeat this procedure 3-4 times until the water coming out is completely clear to make sure you have flushed all of the filter media dust out of the filter.
Next Unwrap filter labeled #2 – Place this filter inside the filter housing labeled #2. Make sure this filter is centered in the housing, then install in the 2nd position, from left to right. (See Video Above). Before you hand tighten check that the Black O-ring is greased and seated properly, then snug it up with housing wrench. DO NOT over tighten. You do not have to purge this cartridge.
Now Unwrap one of the filters labeled #3 and #4 – Inspect the white gasket to be sure it is seated properly, then place the filter inside filter housing #3 and install it in the 3rd position, from left to right. (See Video Above). Before you hand tighten check that the Black O-ring is greased and seated properly, then snug it up with the housing wrench. DO NOT over tighten. You do not have to purge this cartridge.
Now Unwrap the remaining filter labeled #3 and #4 and install in 4th position following the same procedure as for filter #3.
NOTE: You will want to use a new (other than rubber) hose on the water outlet end for 2 reasons; rubber will get absorbed into the purified water and a used hose will contain contaminants that will cause spots.
Attach your new hose to the outlet side along with a hose nozzle and you are ready to use the best vehicle washing water filter system on the market
YOU now can wash, rinse and walk away; no need to dry any longer
Some additional NOTES:
Keep in mind that the hose you use on the outlet end is full of purified water, so you may want to use the shortest length hose (with smaller diameter) that is appropriate for your specific cleaning job in order to minimize waste of purified water when you drain the hose and put it away.
When your system is not in use, install the end caps (provided when shipped) to prevent the filters from drying out and contaminants from entering your system.
