Charging for the 1st time

Tried to pour salt water solutino into the mesh part of the water softener, but the liquid just sit there.

It doesn't "flow freely" as descrbed in the istruction.

Should I try to force water through the softener? Would submerging the unit in a water first help?

Is the filter dry?  Try soaking it in a salt water solution to moisten it.  You can also get a length of tubing and attach it to the end to create a siphon.

I soaked the filter in water first, but moistire wasn't penetrating into the filter.

I ended up sucking the water through the filter; that helped the salt water to drip through the filter better.

Once i figured enough salt water has gone through the filter, I rinsed with regular water, attached the filter in the water tank.

I have been using the coffee machine for a few days now; the pump suction seem to work fine.

I will try recharging the filter in a few weeks to see if the salt water penetration is better.
