The DROP system is a wireless operating system making placement of the Hub very flexible. However there are a few things to keep in mind when you locate the Hub. If you are planning to connect your Hub to your home WiFi be sure to place the Hub within range of that network. The range of the DROP Link network gives adequate coverage to a majority of homes without the use of repeaters. Any device on the DROP network that is powered from an outlet power source can act as a repeater. However, placing your DROP Hub in a central location in your home gives it the best chance of being able to reach all the devices on the network without the need for DROP repeaters.
Another feature to be aware of when placing the Hub is that the DROP Hub can power up to 5 additional DROP products. That is useful when there are not enough outlets to power all of the devices in an area with the provided power supplies. An example of this could be where a softener with a salt sensor, a backwashing filter and the Hub are all installed in a mechanical room. You can power the Hub with the provided power supply then connect the other devices to the Hub using the optional power distribution cord.
The Drop remote can be strategically placed to extend your Drop network range. Extending the wireless range allows you to cover more area in your home and keep all your devices communicating smoothly with one another. The remote can by synced with other Drop remotes if a very large field of coverage is required. The remote can sync with many leak detectors to offer monitoring protection to your entire home.
Backwashing is a process which reverses the flow of water to rinse and resettle the media of the tank to prevent channeling, retain the effectiveness of the media, and remove trapped contaminants. To begin the backwash process, water flow is reversed and sent down the riser tube which normally carries the filtered water out of the tank. The water entering the media tank actually lifts the media bed, swirling it and lifting contaminants trapped in the media upward, this water is then funneled out the drain line. This process of cleansing the filter media usually lasts for around 10 minutes. Following the backwash phase there is a rinse cycle which replicates the normal flow of water through the media, this rinses the media again and allows it to settle into its serviceable position. With the media resettled and cleansed, water filtration may resume.
Channeling is a process caused by a liquids natural tendency to follow the path of least resistance. Over time water will find a path it can flow the fastest through and will carve a path or channel following its flow. This process causes a lowered system effectiveness because water will begin to flow around the filter media instead of flowing through it as intended. To fight this process and remove suspended contaminants a backwash and rinse cycle will mix up the media and then resettle it, counteracting the channeling process and providing maximum contact between the water and filtering media.
