- STEP 2: INSTALL DRAIN ADAPTER -
• Note:
Running
the drain
tubing
directly
to a floor
drain,
sump,
standpipe,
laundry
tub, etc., as shown
on page
18, 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
(FIG. 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 FIG. 4 and 5.
• Locate so drain tubing from the faucet (installed
in
step 1, page 8) 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
(FIG. 5). Turn the con-
nector
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.

A. PREPARE
MOUNTING
HOLE
1. Select
1 of the following
places
for the faucet.
Be
sure
it will fit flat against
the surface,
and
there
is
space
underneath
for tubing
(see FIG. 8, page
8).
Use an existing
sink top hole for a spray
hose or
other
faucet.
A 1" to 1-1/4" diameter
hole is need-
ed.
0
Drill a new
hole in the countertop
next to the
sink.
t
Drill a new hole in the sink top.
CAUTION:
To avoid
damaging
a sink beyond
re-
pair,
consult
a qualified
plumber
or installer
for
guides
to drill holes in porcelain
or stainless
steel.
2. If drilling
is needed,
make
the 1" to 1-1/4"
diame-
ter hole.
3. Place plumbers
putty
around
the drilled
hole (FIG.
6) to prevent
water
leakage
around
the base of the
faucet.
