Upgrading HF Task Master 2 and 2 " systems to MF Task Master III Superflow Systems (06/25/09)

If you have an HF model system with the discontinued brass 2" or 2 " valve, it can be upgraded to the new MF superflow system with the new Taskmaster III SS valve, and ERC electronic regeneration controller. Conversion requires the following components:

1) New Taskmaster III valve (707150-XX) To purchase the correct valve, we must know the system model number and also must know the operating scheme -  Simplex, twin, twin alternating, etc. If you know the part number of your existing HF valve use the conversion chart.

2) Superflow Kit (SFK). The existing system may or may not have a shut off kit. All HF upgrades must have an SFK consisting of two diaphragm valves, a solenoid and appropriate tubing and fittings. To purchase the correct SFK you must know the inlet and outlet pipe size and whether or not the brine eductor is internal or external (IE - internal eductor or EE - Exteral Eductor). 

3) Side mount tank adaptor (Part No. 720216).

4) Paddle Wheel Assembly (Part No 500850 OR 500851-50). If the system is demand regenerated then you must purchase a new paddle wheel assembly since the TM III uses a special plug. Assuming you are using one of Water King's PW series meters, the new paddle wheel is a direct replacement for the old one and will not require a new meter body.

5) Face Piping. The piping on the softener must be changed to accommodate the Taskmaster III. Water King can provide the upgrade components preassembled with piping included. (See drawing) Field piping will consist of making connections to the inlet, outlet, drain, tank inlet and tank outlet. The SFK piping requires precision fitting to prevent stressing of the tank adaptor and other piping.  Face piping is optional since it can be done in on site.

Saving existing diaphragm valves. It is possible to use existing diaphragm valves as part of the upgraded system. Tell us and we will reduce to price of the SFK to reflect the use of existing valves.
