How to Install, Operate and Maintain Your Dolfyn Home Water Distiller
For West Bend Water Systems distiller models A30D and A50D.
Use electricity safely and wisely, and observe safety precautions when using your West Bend Water Systems distiller.
Read all instructions before using.
Be sure power and fan switches are OFF before plugging power cord into outlet.
Distiller should always be unplugged and allowed to cool completely before cleaning.
Do not let cord touch hot surfaces or hang or lay where it may obstruct walking.
Plug distiller into a household grounded outlet ONLY. The cord has a three prong plug which mates with a standard three prong grounded wall outlet. If an adapter is used, be sure adapter wire and wall outlet are grounded. If there is any doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded, check with a qualified electrician.
Make sure gasket, boiling chamber and lid are properly secured before the distiller is plugged in (see instructions). No part of the distiller should be removed during the distillation cycle or until the distiller is completely cooled. Scalding could occur.
The distiller, its cords and plugs should not be used outdoors or immersed in liquids.
Do not distill salt water as this will damage certain distiller components and void the warranty.
Do not touch distiller when it is hot.
Supervise closely when distiller is used by or near children.
Use your distiller only for the use described in these instructions.
Do not use your distiller if it or its cords are damaged or not working properly. Contact your distributor or West Bend Water Systems for examination and/or repair.
KNOWING YOUR DISTILLER--Unpacking
Your distiller has been securely packed to prevent damage during the shipping process. After removing the distiller from the box, open the boiling chamber cover and remove all packing material.
Next, remove the protective plastic bag from the exterior of the unit. Properly dispose of all packing material. Pull down firmly on float ball(s) located underneath the distiller base to fully extend rod(s) from their locked shipping position.
The West Bend Water Systems distiller is constructed of durable stainless steel. Take a few moments now to identify the parts of your distiller, reservoir and accessories.
The rear of the distiller is enclosed for your safety and contains no user serviceable parts.
Your distiller is capable of producing at least 9 gallons of distilled water a day. The useful reservoir capacities are as follows:
| Model # ||US Gallons* ||Liters |
| AR 18 ||2.5 ||9.5 |
| ARS 2000 || 7.0 || 26.5 |
| ARS 3000 || 11.7 || 44.3 |
*Note: Capacity of storage tank can be increased if carbon prefilter is used instead of carbon post filter and float system is raised(with optional float collar---call for information on making this easy change to storage capacity)
Consult the reservoir carton or instruction sheet to determine which model reservoir you have.
PREPARING YOUR DISTILLER AND RESERVOIR
CAUTION: To avoid personal injury or property damage, do not plug distiller into wall outlet until all parts have been cleaned and properly installed.
Do not immerse boiling chamber in water or other liquid for cleaning.
Using a sponge or cloth, clean the interior of the boiling chamber with hot soapy water. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
To remove any traces of manufacturing oils, clean the inside of the reservoir tank with either vinegar or a paste made of baking soda and water. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water.

7) If dual, heavy duty carbon and sediment filter is not used, install the post carbon filter cup by following the instructions provided directly below.
Installing Post Carbon Filter Cup
Your West Bend Water Systems distiller uses a granular actvated carbon (GAC) filter as a final polishing agent to ensure clean, fresh tasting drinking water. If you are using one of our heavy duty carbon and sediment PREFILTERS on the distiller feedwater line, you can discard this carbon post filter. Otherwise:
l) Prepare the fiker cup following the instructons induded with the filter cup.
2) Place filter cup into the supportng bracket in the corner of the reservoir.
3) Replace the post carbon filter cup every two months with a new one. Do not attempt to reuse fhe old filter.
Mounting Distiller To Reservoir
Simply set the distiller on top of the reservoir tank. Your distiller has been engineered to provide a secure fit. When mounting the distiller to the reservoir tank, make sure that the water outlet tube, located underneath the distiller base, is directly above the post carbon fiker cup. This will allow distilled water to flow through the filter cup as it enters the reservoir tank.
Note: if carbon post filter is not used, you can bend the carbon filter holding frame down towards the bottom of the storage tank to allow more clearance between the distiller float and the storage tank fittings.
Installing Boiling Chamber
Your distiller has been shipped with the boiling chamber already in place. If it has been disturbed during shipping follow these simple steps to reinstall the boiling chamber.
1) CAUTION: To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, be certain distiller is unplugged.
2) Place the hook of the boiling chamber over the bracket located in the front half of the distiller.
3) Be sure the gasket on the boiling chamber is securely in place.
4) Fit the lid with the attached tubes over the gasket and onto the boiling chamber making sure that the threaded center support protrudes through the hole in the lid. Ensure that the tubes are centered in the distiler openings.
5) Secure the lid by turning the cover knob clockwise.
6) Make sure that the boiling chamber moves freely up and down by pressing down on the top of the boiling chamber. The boiling chamber should lift when it is released. If the boiling chamber does not move freely, recheck all connections.
7) Fully insert the boiling chamber power cord into the receptacle. A loose connection may damage the powercord.
Water Supply Connection
The following instructions are for installation on copper tubing. If you have iron, steel, brass, PVC or other pipe providing the cold water supply in your home, consult a qualified professional for installation.
All state, provincial and local laws and regulations must be followed in the installation and use of your distiller.
It is advisable to first connect the prefilter(if used instead of our heavy duty carbon and sediment prefilter) to the distiller, then finish the connection to the saddle valve.
Your distiller should be installed on a level surface in a well ventilated area near a water supply line and a standard household grounded electrical outlet.
Do not connect to a water supply that is under 20 lb or over 80 lb pressure and under 32degF/OdegC or over 160degF/72degC temperature.
You will need an adjustable wrench and a flathead screwdriver to hook up the distiller to the water supply.
Do not install distiller closer than four (4) inches to nearest vertical surface.
Installing The Prefilter(if used instead of heavy duty carbon and sediment prefilter)
A length of food-grade tubing and the required fittings have been packed with your distiller.
1) Cut a short piece approximately 12" long from the supplied roll of tubing. Insert one end of the piece into the smaller hole in the nylon elbow and tighten.
2) Take the other end of the elbow and turning clockwise, attach to the inlet valve at the rear of the distiller.
3) Insert the other end of tubing as far as possible into the quick disconnect at the outlet end of the prefilter. Make sure that the arrow on the prefilter is pointing in the direction of the water flow. It should not be possible to remove the tubing unless the grey release collar is pushed into the quick disconnect.
4) Attach the remaining piece of plastic tubing to the quick disconnect at the inlet end of the prefilter.
5) To change the prefilter periodically, turn off the water supply at saddle valve and disengage tubing from the quick disconnects and repeat steps 3 and 4 to install the new prefilter. Note: The quick disconnects must be removed from the old prefilter and added to the new one using new Teflon tape.
6) Screw 'C' clip onto the distiller and insert prefilter into clip.
7) There is no need to disassemble the nylon inlet elbow to change the prefilter. Periodically, however, the inlet elbow should be removed and the small cone shaped screen at the mouth of the inlet valve should be cleaned or replaced (see cleaning instructions HERE).
Installing Saddle Valve Connection
1) Locate the other end of the long tube and slip on the brass compression nut, threaded toward the cut end of the tube.
2) Slip on the nylon ferrule, narrow end toward the cut end of the tube. The nylon ferrule should be about 1/4 inch down the tube. Discard the brass ferrule which is not needed for use with plastic tubing.
3) The tubing provided is thick-walled and will provide you with trouble-free service for many years. Insert the brass tubing into the tube to prevent possible collapse of the tube.
4) Locate the cold water supply line near the place you are installing your distiller. NOTE: Be sure the length of food-grade tubing will reach from your supply line to the distiller location before proceeding. If additional tubing is needed, contact your distributor.
5) Turn the wing on the saddle valve counter-clockwise to insure the lance is fully retracted.
6) Position the saddle valve assembly to straddle the copper pipe of the supply line. Tighten securely, making sure the rubber gasket is in place and slightly compressed to form a good seal between the valve bracket and the copper pipe.
7) Insert the cut end of the food-grade plastic tube into the saddle valve opening and securely tighten the compression nut, turning clockwise. Note: If you have used the brass tubing reinforcer, be certain it is securely in the tube and does not slip into saddle valve assembly.
8) When all connections are secure, turn the wing on the saddle valve clockwise as far as it will go. The saddle valve is now in the closed position. To begin the flow of water to the distiller, turn the wing counterclockwise. Note: In areas where saddle valves are not pemmitted by law, your distubutor can provide you with alternative installation fittings.
The operation of your distiler has been optmized for ease of use. The water level in the boiling chamber is controlled automatically. When connected to the cold water supply line, the water will automatically feed into the boiling chamber, and shut off when the proper water level is achieved. The condensing fan and the heating element of the boiling chamber are also controlled automatically, resulting in worry-free operation.
When the reservoir tank reaches its full level, a float switch will shut off the unit. When water is drawn from the reservoir, the unit will restart automatically, assuring you of a contnuous supply of clean distilled water.
It is suggested that you steam clean your distiller prior to using it for the first time following the easy directions below. This is a disinfecting procedure.
1) Remove the disposable post carbon filter unit(if used).
2) Be certain that the FAN switch is in the OFF position, then turn ON the switch for the POWER only. You should hear the water begin to fill the boiling chamber.
3) When suffcient water fills the boiling chamber, the heating element will turn on automatically. After 15 minutes you should notice steam beginning to appear in the sight gauge.
4) Continue steaming the unit for approximately 20-30 minutes.
5) Turn OFF the POWER switch and allow the unit to cool completely.
6) When the unit is completely cooled, replace the disposable post carbon filter cup.
7) Check all components, then turn on both the POWER and FAN switches. You are now producing pure, distilled water.
