to protect the water filter.
1. IMPORTANT:
'Ium 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 fil-
rex, use a tubing cutter to remove
a section of pipe
about 12" long.
Use sandpaper
or emery cloth to thor-
oughly 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).

adaptor
fitting (See Figure 12). Do not cross-thread,

assembly
into the
straight
connector.
Then, turn the adaptor
end into
the filter head and tighten.
