    There's some very technical stuff on this forum, way beyond me. I just have what I hope is a simple question.
    I had an osmotic system installed over 20 years ago, and I have accidentally broken the power unit. Can I simply buy a new unit and connect to the system, or is there a setting up routine to go through. Thanks in advance for any answer.

    What is a Lectros?

    What does the power unit output?

    Show us the connectors and rating plate.

    Judging by an internet search, it is a snake-oil rising damp 'solution'. Probably worth leaving off, as it is unlikely to be having any useful effect.

    Good.

    All it has been doing for the last 20 years is wasting electricity.

    From the picture, appears to be a bog-standard wallwart outputting 5v DC with a proprietary connector of some sort on the end.
    If the initial snake oil wasn't bad enough, they want £60 for a 50p wallwart, which should tell you a lot about their business model.........
