Placement or Locating the Dispenser/Faucet
Professional Installation is Strongly Recommended
Preferred - Select a standard sink location to mount the faucet.
It is recommended that the faucet be placed in a hole provided on most sinks similar to the ones used for a sprayer, soap dispenser and/or dishwasher
air gap. If the hole or space is unavailable, an alternative location will be required:
MINIMUM HOLE REQUIRED 1/2”, MAXIMUM 1 3/8”
Option A:
On the sink. This option is to drill a new hole into the sink rim itself, if space allows.
Option B:
On the countertop next to a sink. This option is to position the faucet spout in the correct location to drain into the sink. This
requires a clearance around the faucet both above and below the countertop. Use the supplied dispenser as a template or see the
enclosed dispenser schematic and dispenser dimensions.
Prepare to drill the hole using the dispenser as a template.
• Sinks can be made of, but not limited to, stainless steel, copper, porcelain/steel, enamel/cast iron, man-made surfaces, stone, concrete, and/or materials
known or unknown at this time.
• Countertops can be made of, but not limited to, or be a combination of, natural stone, enamel, porcelain, concrete, wood, metals and/or man-made
materials known or unknown at this time.
CAUTION: Please consult with the sink or countertop manufacture, supplier, fabricator, or installer for proper drilling techniques and methods.
EXTREME CARE MUST BE TAKEN IN DRILLING THE HOLE FOR ANY SURFACE. THE SURFACE MATERIALS OF SINKS AND COUNTERTOPS CAN CHIP OR CRACK.
THE MANUFACTURER ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM THIS INSTALLATION. WARNING: USE SAFETY GLASSES OR OTHER EYE PROTECTION WHEN GRINDING OR DRILLING TO PREVENT POSSIBLE EYE INJURY DUE TO FLYING PARTICLES.
Note Dispenser Operation:
Spout pulls out from faucet body and has 2 o-rings at base. Insert completely into bottom of faucet body to prevent leaking. Spount swivels to direct water. Handle and tip can be removed. Handle can be locked in open position for continuous flow.
Dispenser/Faucet Q & A
Q:
I do not want to drill any extra holes or use a separate dispenser/faucet - what can I do?
A:
An alternative to installing and using the dispenser/faucet is to consider a direct connection to your existing kitchen (cold side) faucet. Connect the supply from the cold water angle stop to feed/inlet side of the filtration system as directed in this manual. Then connect the filtered/outlet
side to the cold feed side of the kitchen faucet. Special fiitings, that are readily available to the plumbing professional, will be required to fit this application based on line size and materials used.
WARNING:
This is not a preferred method due to a more complicated install, lower flow rates to your kitchen faucet and most importantly, the possibility of water
quality issues as a result of the aerator at the end of the kitchen faucet not intended for filtered water.
Note:
There will be a diminishment in your flow rate to the cold side of the faucet (kitchen faucet has a flow rate of up to 2.3 gallons per minute and the
filtered water is delivered up to 1 gallon per minute). To get filtered water you must be sure you have the faucet to the cold side only. This application or
option may not be applicable for reverse osmosis systems.
Q:
I would like to use another dispenser/faucet?
A:
Based on many styles and finishes, a consumer may have another dispenser they would like to use. No problem, all these items have universal or industry standard fittings, or if not, can be easily adapted to fit.
Standard Dispenser included:
EWS, Inc. includes a standard chrome, long-reach, lead-free faucet with white handle and tip.
Options Available:
EWS provides the following options to match other items at an additional charge:
Change your white tip and handle to black. Change your faucet to the following finshes; satin nickel, polished nickel, polished brass, or oil rubbed bronze
(all with black handle and tip). Inquire with your local EWS, Inc. distributor, contact an authorized internet distributor or visit us on the web.
Q:
Can we connect the filtered water up to other devices?
A:
Yes, simply connect by a “T” connection, the filtered water line to any instant hot, chiller, ice-maker, refrigerator, etc. Regarding flow rate, be
mindful of too many (3 or more) connections and/or any length limitations in excess of 15 feet to any item that may create issues with delivery rates.

Supplied Professional Connection
Professional Installation is Strongly Recommended
The supplied fitting is a John Guest Angle Stop Valve
which connects between the supply valve and riser to the main water supply line*.
Instructions from the bag containing the supplied connection
From parts bag locate:
Angle Stop Valve
5 feet of red or orange 1/4” tubing (the proper tubing from the water supply to the system)
Step 1
BEST METHOD: Shut off the main water supply to the house and open the kitchen faucet to relieve
water pressure in the hard pipe. Once water stops flowing from the kitchen faucet, shut off the water
supply at brass or chrome supply valve. This is the shut off valve for the cold water side of the faucet
under the sink (see illustration)
NOTE: Shutting the angle stop only, still leaves water in that pipe.
Step 2
Disconnect riser from brass or chrome supply valve.
This is the cold water line that feeds your existing kitchen faucet.
Step 3
Ensure that the sealing gasket is fully seated into the angle stop valve female thread.
Step 4
Install angle stop valve on supply valve.
Step 5
Connect the riser to the angle stop valve.
Step 6
Fully insert red tubing into the quick connect fitting on the side of the angle stop valve.

System Start-Up and Operation Procedures
A proper start-up insures the system is without issues.
If anything is discovered, this is the time to discover it and correct any problems or questions that arise.
Lack of any, or a proper, start-up will void the warranty.
Step 1 For Essential DWS with UV Upgrade Only
Connect UV lamp cord and plug in transformer unit to typical 110v electric outlet. (DWS-UV only)
NOTE:
Electrical outlet must be dedicated and unswitched. Be aware of any GFI outlets and the need to reset. Surge supression highly
recommended.
Step 2
Pull up and lock dispenser/faucet handle (if using another type of dispenser - put into open position). This will allow water to
flow in the open position. Turn off water supply to other devices. Do not make this water available to any ice-makers, refrigerators or any other devices until the system is completely flushed and running clear.
Step 3 Slowly - Turn on or open any main water supply which was shut off earlier.
Step 4
Open or make sure there is inlet water supply to the system. Water will begin to flow from dispenser/faucet. Initially it may
sputter until it reaches full flow. Allow system to run steadily for approximately 2 minutes or more, if needed. This will wash
carbon fines and air from the system. End this flushing of the system once water runs clear. System is now available to use as
normal. Open water supply to other devices, if applicable.
NOTE:
If you draw your water into a glass and it appears to be cloudy, it’s only air and nothing bad. Let the glass sit and watch the air rise
and dissipate. The filter cartridges used are full bed depth. The carbon (GAC) cartridges have a great deal of surface area. With
usage, it may take 24-48 hours for this to correct itself.
Step 5
Inspect for leaks at all connections, fittings and/or housings. If a problem exists, please shut off water supply to the system and
consider the following solutions:
•
Plumbing connections at the inlet/supply connection or angle stop.
Please review these plumbing procedures and correct.
•
Plumbing connections to dispenser/faucet and any other fixtures or cross-connections. Please review and correct.
•
Inspect for leaks at all unit connections such as connections between housings, UV housing and connections (if applicable), cartridge housings. Report any issues for assistence or needed part(s).
•
Inspect for leaks at the labeled “FEED” and “FAUCET” connections between the supplied tubing and the quick connect
fittings. To insure proper connection, give a light “tug” (not a hard pull) on tubing to check the grip on all fittings.
If any damage was identified in shipping or handling. You’ll need to make a claim with the shipper, as indicated on our
Packing Materials, our Packing Slip and the published General Terms and Standard Conditions of Sale.
If you have identified a problem, please contact our offices. Let us know if we can offer advice on a plumbing issue that
may not be related to the actual unit, or a question or issue that may be unit related. If in need of a part under warranty we can
readily send it. Parts (original only) needed out of warranty can be obtained through your contractor, local distribution or at www.
waterontheweb.com.
WARNING: Maximum pressure is 75 PSI. Pressure unregulated can surge or exceed the maximum rating on this and many items
in the home. High pressure creates a water hammer or banging pipes. It’s also the reason to use stainless hoses for washer machine
connections and not the rubber. A pressure reducing valve (PRV) at your main water service line (if not code) is greatly recommended by many manufacturers’ of many different household items, plumbing products and appliances and must be checked
annually. A point of use (sink location) pressure limiting valve is also available.

normal and proper installation, use, service and proper care as published in detail in all service guides included with product. Labor charges are excluded from any warranty service or repair and are not
the responsibility of EWS, Inc. Shipping charges may apply to delivered replacement parts or materials. Charges may also apply for the cost of any replacement media, resin, cartridges, uv lamp and/

ewswater.com, telephone, postal delivery, fax, e-mail (either register@ewswater.com or information provided to customerservice@ewswater.com). Failure to do so voids the warranty unless restricted by state regulations.
EWS, Inc. does not sell, show or make available any information on any consumer in our database. This database is to ensure, if needed, proper warranty service, and good customer service for years
to come. Please see our privacy policy published in our website at www.ewswater.com.
Know Your Water:
• If on a municipal system, large or small, it is your right as a consumer to have access to the most recent test results and to expect adherence to federal guidelines, as well as any state or local requirements. Any problems should be reported to the appropriate agencies. Please acquire those municipal test results to become an informed consumer.
• If on an individual well, have your water completely and independently tested. Local code may require a simple test for coliform bacteria to approve a well, however you may be unaware of potential
problems for you and/or your home. A local water salesman is looking to close a sale and is going to test for hardness minerals and a few simple and obvious issues, which may or may not be contamination problems. Their solution is almost always the same and yet may provide no resolution to any true problems. Obtain our “Guide for the Private Well Owner” on our website; www.ewswater.com.
Review our section on well water testing and applications in our complete catalog with your local distributor, dealer, or our representative or visit our website.
• WARNING:
Some restrictions apply to the use of softeners. Contact your local municipal water district or Gov’t Agency. Brine discharge is already restricted on, or may be a problem for, septic applications and waste
water treatment facilities. Since some states have already restricted softeners to metered valves to prevent excessive brine discharge, EWS, Inc. only provides metered valving in its line of softeners.
Restrictions or an outright ban may also apply to hot-side only, salt-exchange tanks or services. Local water dealers and other organizations do not inform consumers of these issues and believe these
rules are unenforcable. The consumer is ultimately responsible.
Softeners may also provide warranty issues with pools and spas, certain other products and finishes. Softened water should not be used for drinking, cooking, pets or plants and is usually bypassed
or “looped away” from the cold side of the kitchen sink. Reverse osmosis, which also has its drawbacks and issues with other products and materials, may be used to remove the salt from the water
that the softener put in at the kitchen sink, yet may be misapplied for the actual local water conditions.
Any problems of water quality, or the fitness of any EWS, Inc. product that is associated with any mechanical, construction, application, installation, and/or environmental issue(s) (ie: flow rates, line
pressure, piping materials, broken supply lines, changing water conditions; well or municipal water quality, et. al.), known or unknown, of the home or facility will not be considered by EWS, Inc. until
such issue(s) have been resolved.
Responsibility for the proper product and/or plumbing specification, application and/or installation of any device manufactured by EWS, Inc. lies with the consumer, their builder contractor, plumbing
sub-contractor and any other installer of choice. Items do not specify and/or install themselves. EWS, Inc. has provided many sources to acquire information on the proper application of systems and
their installation prior to any purchase. EWS, Inc. manufactures a complete product line of point of use water filtration systems and point of entry filtration, softening and/or conditioning systems and/
or appliances.
EWS, Inc. and the distributors of EWS, Inc. will stand behind the warranties of materials and workmanship. However, EWS, Inc. and the distributors of EWS, Inc. and the Environmental Water Systems
Product Line do not bear any responsibility for improper applications of product and/or improper installation. It is for this reason that EWS, Inc. provides complete information on all product for your
understanding, specification, application and selection, and proper plumbing application and installation.
To obtain warranty service support, contact your local dealer or contractor from whom you obtained the product or contact EWS, Inc., Customer Service, via phone, fax, or email.
