INTRODUCTION
A suitable drain point is needed
for the reject water from
the Reverse Osmosis Filter. You have two options
to
choose from:
* Install
the Drain
Adapter
included
with your unit
See Figures 6, 7 & 8. This is used in under
the sink
installations.
The drain adapter
kit is installed
onto
your sink drain pipe above the P-trap.
See Figure 6.
Use another
existing
drain in your home
This is usually
used in remote location
type installa-
tions. The drain tube from the Reverse Osmosis Filter
runs directly
to an open drain. See Figures 9 & 10.
NOTE: Local code may dictate which type of drain
installation
is used. Other than local code, either drain
installation
types may be used. Consult a plumber
if you
are not familiar
with plumbing
procedures.
INSTALL
DRAIN
ADAPTER
KIT
(Under
sink Installation)
in an under
the sink installation,
you normally
use the
P-trap drain adapter. A drain adapter
kit is included
in
your package.
Review the drain adapter
kit parts in
Figure 8. The drain adapter
is always installed
in the
sink drain pipe, above or ahead of the P- trap. See
Figures 6 & 8. Be sure to comply with your local plumb-
ing codes. The drain adapter
fits 1-1/2" sink drain pipes.
Other drain pipe fittings, purchased
locally, may be
needed
in addition
to the adapter.
1. Slowly disassemble
the sink drain pipe between
the
sink P-trap and the sink tailpiece.
See Figures 6 & 8.
2. Clean the sink tailpiece
to assure a leak-tight
fit.
3. install drain adapter
directly
onto the sink tailpiece
using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but do not
tighten.
See Figure 7.
4. Assemble
the drain tubing connector
to the drain
adapter
using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but
do not tighten.
See Figure 7.
NOTE: Locate so drain tubing from the Reverse
Osmosis
faucet will make a straight run to the adapter,
without
dips, loops, low spots or kinks. See Figure 8.
5. Turn the connector
to about 45 ° (10:00 or 2:00 posi-
tion). See Figure 7. Tighten the nut securely.
6. Assemble
the P-trap to the drain adapter,
and other
drain pipe fittings as required
to complete
the drain
run. See Figure 6.
NOTE: If needed, you can cut the unthreaded
end of
the adapter
to make it fit. Do not cut too short or the
adapter
will not make a leak-tight
seal with the con-
necting fitting.
7. Tighten all connections,
but do not over tighten plastic
connections.

IMPORTANT:
Locate drain adapter
so when
the black drain
tube
from the Reverse
Osmosis
Faucet is installed
later on,
it will make
a straight
run to the adapter,
without
dips, loops, low spots
or kinks.
