Floor Installation of the Inlet Valve
This is usually the only possible installation method in existing houses.
Note! When installing the inlet valve and tubing system in the fl oor, make
sure that long sticks etc. do not to fall into the tubing.

For a fl oor installation, it is recommended to use the method shown in the
fi gure, if applicable. It is the same as for the wall installation. The 90° inlet
elbow prevents long objects from accessing the tubing system. For this
method to be successful, the allowance under the fl oor should be at least
2 2/3" (65mm).
For fl oor installation, it is possible to use the fl oor sleeve or rebuil-
ding sleeve. In such cases, the mounting bracket is not needed.

Installation in a Closet Wall
Choose a location and make a 2 1/8" x 2 3/4" (55mm x 70mm) opening
for the inlet valve. For the tube, a 2 3/8" (60mm) diameter hole is needed.
Drill a hole for the tube also in the fl oor of the closet. Cut the tube to the
proper length and glue it into the rebuilding sleeve.
closet wall
Insert the tube into the round hole with the fl oor sleeve/rebuilding sleeve
fi rst so that it extends through the outer wall of the closet. Mount the inlet
valve in the rebuilding sleeve. Measure and cut the tube to the proper
length so that it reaches with the inlet elbow to the vertical tube.
