Group Cleaning function

Post by goodboyr » Sun Mar 31, 2013 12:02 pm

Just doing my backflush routine, without detergent, and noted the icon for group cleaning in the menu. What I learned is that this is a pretty handy function. When activated, it does the backflush for you automatically, by running the pump for 5 seconds, pausing for 5 seconds, and repeating this sequence till you stop it. It also ignores any preinfusion setting you have, so you get a full 5 seconds of pump backflush. Its a nice "set and forget" part of the routine. So, I remove the screens and replace with the clean set, run the backflush routine, and in parallel clean the screens I removed while the machine backflushes itself.

One of the other functions the machine has is a running shot counter, but when you use the cleaning feature it's smart enough not to count those cycles as shots.

However, the volume of water used is checked as there is another counter to let you know when to change your softener filter assuming that feature is enabled.
