The HydroFix™ should be marked by the owner at the time of installation with an indelible ink pen. The HydroFix™ Release Unit is good three years from the date of manufacture (which is imprinted on the bottom of the HydroFix?) or 2 years from the date of installation.
See the example below: MFG.0611 means the HRU was made June (06) of 2011. Thus this unit will need to be replaced 2 years from the date installed or in June of 2014.
