CHOOSE
TYPE OF WATER
FITTING
TO
INSTALL
Locate the cold water line in the sink cabinet. It is recom-
mended,
but not required,
that the cold water line be soft
water. You can use the saddle valve provided
with your
unit to tap into the cold water line. See Fig. 5. Or you can
purchase
standard
pipe fittings locally such as a com-
pression
fitting. The fitting must provide
a leak-tight
connection
to the Reverse Osmosis
1/4" tube.
NOTE: Local code may dictate
which type of water fit-
ting is used. Consult a plumber if you are not familiar
with local codes or plumbing
procedures.
NOTE: Codes in the state of Massachusetts
require
installation
by a licensed plumber
and do not permit
the
use of saddle valves.
If you live in the state of Massachusetts,
review plumb-
ing code 248-CMR
of the Commonwealth
of
Massachusetts
before proceeding
with the installation.
INSTALL
SADDLE
VALVE
(Included
with your package)
This fitting will be installed
on the cold water pipe. The
fitting must provide
a leak-tight
connection
to the
Reverse Osmosis
1/4" tubing.
Complete
the following
steps to install the saddle valve
assembly.
.
Review Fig. 5 and familiarize
yourself
with all parts of
the saddle valve. This valve will self-tap a hole in cop-
per tubing
or plastic pipe.
IMPORTANT'.
Before starting,
close the hot and cold
water shutoff
valves
(See Figure 5).
2.
if installing
on iron pipe, drill a 1/8" hole for the pierc-
ing pin.
IMPORTANT'.
if a battery-powered
hand drill is not
available
and an electric drill is used, ensure that the
drill is properly grounded.
.
Place the seal on the inside of Clamp X. See Fig. 5.
Turn the valve handle all the way out.(counter-clock-
wise) Be sure the piercing
pin does not stick out
beyond
the seal.
4. Place Clamp X and Z around
the pipe. Secure in place
with two screws. Tighten both screws evenly. Do not
over tighten screws. See Fig. 5.
5. Turn the valve handle all the way in. (clockwise)
This
will pierce the wall of the pipe. See Fig. 5.
6. Do not connect the tubing to the fitting at this time.
This will occur later in the installation.
NOTE:
Once the saddle
valve
is installed,
the nut near
the handle
may
need to be tightened
to prevent
possi-
ble leaks.
