INTRODUCTION
A suitable
drain point is needed for the reject water
from
the Reverse Osmosis Filter. You have two options to
choose from:
• Install
the Drain Adapter
included with your unit
See Figures 6, 7 & 8. This is used in under the sink
installations.
The drain adapter
kit is installed
onto
your sink drain
pipe above the P-trap. See Figure 6.
• Use another existing drain in your
home
This is usually used in remote
location
type installa-
tions. The drain tube from the Reverse Osmosis Filter
runs directly
to an open drain.
See Figures 9 & 10.
NOTE: Local code may dictate
which type of drain instal-
lation is used. Other than local code, either drain installa-
tion types may be used. Consult a plumber
if you are not
familiar
with plumbing
procedures.
INSTALL
DRAIN
ADAPTER
KIT
(Under
sink Installation)
In an under the sink installation,
you normally
use the
P-trap drain adapter.
A drain adapter
kit is included
in
your package.
Review the drain adapter
kit parts in
Figure 8. The drain adapter
is always
installed
in the sink
drain pipe, above or ahead
of the P- trap. See Figures 6
& 8. Be sure to comply
with your local plumbing
codes.
The drain adapter
fits 1-1/2" sink drain pipes. Other
drain
pipe fittings,
purchased
locally,
may be needed
in addi-
tion to the adapter.
1. Slowly
disassemble
the sink drain pipe between
the sink
P-trap and the sink tailpiece.
See Figures 6 & 8.
2. Clean the sink tailpiece
to assure a leak-tight
fit.
3. Install drain adapter
directly
onto the sink tailpiece
using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but do not tight-
en. See Figure 7.
4. Assemble
the drain tubing
connector
to the drain
adapter
using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but do
not tighten.
See Figure 7.
NOTE: Locate so drain tubing
from the Reverse
Osmosis faucet will make a straight
run to the adapter,
without
dips, loops, low spots or kinks. See Figure 8.
5. Turn the connector
to about
45 ° (10:00 or 2:00 posi-
tion). See Figure 7. Tighten the nut securely.
6. Assemble
the P-trap to the drain adapter,
and other
drain
pipe fittings
as required
to complete
the drain
run. See Figure 6.
NOTE: If needed, you can cut the unthreaded
end of
the adapter
to make it fit. Do not cut too short or the
adapter
will not make a leak-tight
seal with the con-
necting fitting.
7. Tighten all connections,
but do not over tighten
plastic
connections.
