INSTALLATION
STEPS
1. Apply 4 wraps of Teflon tape to the threads
of both
compression
fittings.
2. Carefully
turn the compression
fittings into the water
filter head inlet and outlet and tighten.
Do not cross-
thread
and damage the threads.
Do not overtighten
and crack the head.
3. Remove the nut and brass ferrule from both compres-
sion fittings and set aside.
Using a tape measure
or
ruler, measure
the distance
"D" as shown
in Figure 7).
Mark this dimension
at right so you do not forget.
4. IMPORTANT:
Turn off the water supply
to the main
pipe.
Open a high and low faucet in the water system
to drain the pipe.
5. On the main water pipe, where you will install the fil-
ter, mark the dimension
"D'.
You will remove this
section of pipe.
Before you begin to cut, double-check
your measurement.
6. Use a tubing cutter to remove the section of pipe.
Remove all burrs and rough edges with the sandpaper
or emery cloth.
7. Place a nut and brass ferrule from compression
fittings
onto both pipe ends (See Figure 8).
8. With the IN side of the water filter toward
incoming
water, spread
the pipes apart and fit both pipe ends
into the compression
fittings.
Move a ferrule and nut
up to the fitting (See Figure 9). Then, turn on and
tighten the nut. Hold the fitting with one wrench
while tightening
the nut with the other.
Repeat on the
other side.
9. Before turning
on the water supply, remove the sump
from the filter head and install the filter cartridge
(See
Page 11).

GROUNDING
INFORMATION:
The house cold water pipe is often used to ground
elec-
trical outlets in the home.
Grounding
protects
you from
electrical shock.
Installing
the water filter housing
may
have broken this ground.
To restore, buy and install a #4
copper wire across the filter, tightly clamped
at both
ends, as shown in Figure 10.
