- STEP 2: INSTALL DRAIN ADAPTER -
• Note:
Running
the drain
tubing
directly
to a floor
drain,
sump,
standpipe,
laundry
tub, etc., as shown
on page
17, is preferred.
However,
if that is not pos-
sible or practical,
the included
drain
adapter
installs
in the sink drain
pipe,
always
above
or ahead
of the
p-trap,
Figure
4. Be sure to comply
with
your
local
plumbing
codes.
Other
drain
pipe
fittings,
in addi-
tion to the adapter,
may be needed.
• The drain
adapter
fits 1-1/2"
sink drain
pipe.
• The adapter
installs
directly
onto the sink tailpiece
as typically
shown
in Figure
4 and Figure
5.
Locate
so drain
tubing
from
the faucet
makes
a
straight
run to the adapter,
without
dips, loops,
low
spots
or kinks.
Note: Consult
a plumber
if you are not familiar
with
plumbing
procedures.
1. Use a ferrule
and nut to assemble
the drain
tubing
connector
to the drain
adapter
(Figure
5). Turn
the
connector
to about
45 ° from
the 12:00 position,
as
shown
(to 10:00 or 2:00 position
as needed).
Tighten
the nut securely.
2. Carefully
disassemble
the
sink
drain
pipe
and
clean the tailpiece
to assure
a leak-tight
fit.
3. Install
the drain
adapter
onto
the sink tailpiece,
using
a ferrule
and
nut.
Snug
the nut, but
do not
tighten.
Note: If needed,
to make fit, you can cut to shorten
the
unthreaded
end of the adapter.
Do not cut too short
so the adapter
will make
a leak-tight
seal with
the
connecting
fitting.
4. Assemble
the p- trap to the drain
adapter,
and oth-
er drain
pipe
fittings
as required
(check
codes)
to
complete
the drain
run.
5. Tighten
all connections,
but do not overtighten
and
break
plastic
fittings.

MOUNTING
HOLE
1. Select one of the following
places
for the faucet.
Be
sure
it will fit flat against
the surface,
and there
is
space
underneath
for tubing
(see Figure
8, page
8).
J Use an existing
sink top hole for a spray
hose
or
other
faucet.
A 1-1/4"
diameter
hole
is needed.
0
Drill a new hole in the countertop
next to the sink.
0
Drill a new hole in the sink top.
CAUTION:
Drilling
holes into countertops
made
of
stone
or solid
surface
materials
such
as granite,
marble,
Corian
T_ or other
plastic
resin
products
or
sinks
made
of porcelain
and
stainless
steel
should
only be performed
by a fabricator
installer
who is cer-
tified for fabricating
such materials.
Drilling
of these
type surfaces
by any other
means
may cause perma-
nent, irreparable
damage
to the countertop
surface.
2. If drilling
is needed,
make
the 1-1/4"
diameter
hole.
