hoses with flat washers (not provided). Do not use old hoses.

to inlet valves. If you are only connecting to a cold water
faucet, you must use a Y-adapter (not included).

Coupling
Insert a new flat washer into each end of the inlet hoses
(not provided). Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.

hoses
to water
faucets
Attach hose to hot water faucet. Screw on coupling by hand
until it is seated on washer. Use pliers to tighten couplings an
additional two-thirds
turn. Repeat this step with second hose
for cold water faucet.
IMPORTANT:
Do not overtighten
or use tape or sealants on
valve when attaching to faucets or washer. Damage can result.
HELPFUL TIP: Make note of which hose is connected to hot
water to help in attaching hoses to washer correctly. In most
standard configurations,
hoses will cross over each other
when attached correctly.
