following:
Confirm inlet water pressure to water
valve is alt least 35 pounds per
square inch(PSIG).
Confirm water pressure to water
valve does not exceed 120 PSIG.
Maximum operating temperature is
125°F.
Check carefully for water leaks
immediately after installation and 24
hours after installation.
