MATERIALS AND TOOLS NEEDED:
You will need 2 sweat adaptors,
3/4"
NPT x sweat (sweat
end to fit your main water
pipe), lead-free
solder and
flux, soldering
torch, Teflon tape, sandpaper
or emery
cloth, open end (to fit sweat adaptor)
or adjustable
jaw
wrench.
INSTALLATION
STEPS
CAUTION:
Heat created
when soldering
can damage
the
water
filter's plastic
parts.
Be sure to use the following
procedure
to protect
the water
filter.
1. IMPORTANT:
Turn off the water
supply to the main
pipe.
Open
a high and low faucet in the water
system
to drain the pipe.
2. On the main water
pipe, where you will install the filter,
use a tubing
cutter to remove a section of pipe about
12" long.
Use sandpaper
or emery cloth to thoroughly
clean and remove all burrs and rough edges, from both
pipe ends.
NOTE: When
soldering,
use lead-free
solder and flux
only.
Be sure pipe and fittings
are properly
cleaned.
3. Solder a sweat adaptor
onto one of the pipe ends (See
Figure 11).
4.
Place, but do not solder, a straight
connector
onto the
other pipe end (See Figure 11).
5. Remove the sump from the filter head and set the sump
aside.
6. After it cools, apply
4 wraps of Teflon tape to the
threads
on the sweat adaptor
fitting
(See Figure 12).
7. With the IN side of the water
filter toward
incoming
water,
carefully,
turn the filter
head onto the sweat
adaptor
fitting
(See Figure 12). Do not cross-thread,
or
over-tighten
and crack the filter head.
8. Turn a sweat adaptor
fitting
into the other side of the
filter
head and hand tighten
only.
Using a tape
meas-
ure or ruler, measure the distance
"D" as shown in
Figure 13. Mark this same dimension
on a length of
copper
pipe.
Cut the length of pipe.
9. Remove the sweat adaptor
fitting
from the filter
head
and solder to the cut length of pipe.
10. After it cools, apply
4 wraps
of Teflon tape to the
continued
threads
on the sweat adaptor
fitting.
Apply
flux and
place the pipe end of the soldered
assembly
into the
straight
connector.
Then, turn the adaptor
end into
the filter
head and tighten.
11. Solder
both sides of the straight
connector.
12. Before replacing
the sump and turning
on the water
supply, install the filter cartridge
(See Page 11).
NOTE: Read the "Grounding
Information"
on Page 7, and
comply
with the instructions
if required
to maintain
continuity.
