Step 1 - Install Water Supply Fitting
CHOOSE TYPE OF WATER SUPPLY FITTING TO INSTALL
Locate the cold water line in the sink cabinet. Check and
comply with local plumbing codes as you plan, and then
install a water supply fitting on the sink's cold water line.
The fitting must provide a leak-tight connection to the
Advanced Two-Stage Drinking Water Filter's 3/8" O.D.
inlet tubing. A typical connection using the included
water supply fitting is shown in Fig. 3. An alternative
connection using standard plumbing fittings (not includ-
ed) is shown in Fig. 4.
