Connect the flexible hose as shown using clamp pro-
vided. Do not allow flexible tube to come within 3" of furnace
flue pipe because of flue pipes extreme heat. If hose is under
stress (pulling), it may be necessary
to drill 2 holes in humidi-
fier collar for screws. This will prevent clamp from slipping off
(Fig. 14).

It is best to install an overflow line. Local codes may
require overflow protection.
The overflow is in the bottom of
the reservoir (Fig. 15). Use 1/2" inside diameter plastic or rub-
ber tubing to connect and route to nearby floor drain. (Tubing
not furnished.
Available
at your local hardware
store.)

WATER SUPPLY
J1
Water for the humidifier must be taken from a nearby
cold water line. Turn off the water supply. Drain by opening
a
faucet at a lower level of the line.
i J2
Position the saddle valve on the water line as close
to the humidifier
as possible. You have been supplied with 10
feet of 1/4" plastic tubing.
SPECIAL NOTE: When measuring the distance from the
saddle valve location to the humidifier,
keep in mind that
the tubing must be supported; therefore, it must run along
ceiling and walls. Measure along the path the tubing will
follow.
3
Back out the piercing pin by turning the "T" handle
counter clockwise
and then clamp the saddle valve body se-
curely on the water line with rubber gasket positioned as shown
(Fig. 16). On galvanized
or copper pipe over 5/8", first drill a
5/32" hole.
CAUTION:
For safety,
use a hand drill or grounded
electric
drill.
