WATER FILTRATION SAFEGUARDS
Your Moen PureTouch® AquaSuite System utilizes carbon block filtration made
by Culligan®. This technology is fast and effective at reducing contaminants
commonly found in water and is certified by NSF® International. To ensure
optimal operation of your new PureTouch filtration system, please read the
following safeguards carefully.
MicroTech® Filters
• MicroTech filters will reduce:
Chlorine, Taste and Odor
Lead
Cysts (Cryptosporidium, Giardia)
Lindane
Atrazine
Mercury
Turbidity
The contaminants removed or reduced by this filter are not necessarily in your water.
• Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality
without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified
for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters, since they may also
contain filterable cysts.
• MicroTech filters are designed for replacement after dispensing 750 gallons
of filtered water, or after 6 months (whichever comes sooner). Water
conditions and usage may affect filter life.
• The electronic indicator will signal when filter replacement is necessary
(See “Operating Instructions” on page 11).
• Use only MicroTech 9000 filters with the PureTouch AquaSuite.
• Filter flow rate = 1 gpm at rated pressure.
• Maximum operating pressure = 125 psi.
Water Temperature
•
CAUTION: Do not filter water above 100°F (37° C). For cold water supply only.
MicroTech® Filter Flushing Instructions
• New MicroTech Filter: After installing a new filter, allow cold water to run
through a new filter for 5 minutes to flush out any loose carbon particles.
Once these small particles are washed out the filter is ready for use. The
filter life indicator will alternately flash amber & green for the first five
minutes after the indicator is manually reset as an aid in timing the filter
flushing period. The filter life indicator will then flash only green when the
flushing period is complete.
• Daily Use: Allow cold water to run through the filter for 10-15 seconds prior
to first use. If the filter has not been used for two days, run cold water
through the filter for 30 seconds prior to the first use.

PRE-INSTALLATION TIPS
Recommended tools:
Safety glasses, flash light, drill
w/ 1" circular hole saw, punch
(optional), phillips screw
driver, thread seal tape, 8”
adjustable wrenches (2), pliers,
tape measure.
Kitchen
Determining the location
for install
The PureTouch® AquaSuite can
be installed near a kitchen or
bathroom sink. The AquaSuite
faucet may be installed either
to the left or right of your
current faucet. When you install
the AquaSuite you will have the
choice of orienting the handle
direction for easy operation on
the left or right side of your
kitchen or bath faucet.
hole cutout options
Bathroom
Decide which spout you will
install (low profile or high profile
– see page 4 for picture) and
ensure that spout will extend far
enough into the sink for your
filtration needs. If installing the
low profile spout, the
recommended distance from
edge of sink to center of
installation hole is 4-1/4" to
4-3/4". If installing the high
profile spout, the recommended distance from edge of sink to center of
installation hole is 3-1/2" to 4".
The AquaSuite faucet can easily fit into a pre-existing hole such as those used
for a soap dispenser or kitchen faucet side spray. If a hole is not already
available, you’ll need to cut out a 1" diameter hole in the location on the sink or
countertop where you wish to install the faucet, making sure that the location is
a flat surface with minimal obstruction. A 1" diameter hole is recommended but
can be as large as 1-5/8" diameter.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
AquaSuite™ Faucet Installation
After determining in which location you will install your PureTouch AquaSuite
(may involve drilling mounting hole – see page 5), install gasket onto escutcheon
and drop LED wire through mounting hole. Orient filter life indicator to the front
so it will be visible during faucet use.
Thread handle insert into valve body with mounting shank and drop through
mounting hole, taking care to orient the handle to either the left or right side for
comfortable use.
To install the mounting bracket,
you must first determine your
deck thickness. Your deck
thickness determines whether
the mounting bracket is installed
open side up or down. A
minimum of 1/2" of mounting
shank must be exposed for
proper attachment of the supply
hose from the filter. Position
mounting bracket onto mounting
shank. Install mounting nut and
tighten by hand. Be sure that
faucet is positioned evenly on
the mounting surface. Make final
tightening of mounting nut with
mounting tool (supplied).
CAUTION: Be careful not
to pinch the LED Wire
when tightening the
faucet into place.
Select either low profile or high
profile spout to install (see page
5). Slide spout through spout nut with the flared side of the nut facing down.
Insert spout into valve body and thread nut onto valve body. Thread spout tip
onto spout and tighten.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation of Filtration Unit
Determine the best location for the installation of the undersink filtration unit.
Ensure that the hose connections will reach from the water supply to the water
inlet on the filter unit, and the hose connection from the water outlet of the filter
unit up to the connection under the faucet. Make sure water supply is turned
off before proceeding.
CAUTION: Risk of property damage. Do not install unit where the
temperature may drop below freezing.
Installation Overview
Install T-fitting
T-fitting
The T-fitting (packaged in the T-fitting & Stop Valve hardware pack (3)) is used to
divert the cold water supply to the filtration unit. Install the T-fitting into the
cold water line as shown.
1. Attach the T-fitting with washer to the rigid leg of your faucet or stop valve.
Hold the supply leg of the faucet steady by putting a wrench or pliers on the
flats of the supply leg fitting when tightening the T-fitting.
Note: The T-fitting can be installed at either end of the cold water supply line
depending on your line configuration and ease of installation.

When determining the location of the bracket make sure you leave at least
1–1/2" of free space from the floor surface to the bottom of the filter (13) (or 15"
from floor to the underside filter connection of the Filter Life Indicator Module
(12)), and at least 4" of space on both sides to make the hose connections.
1. With the filter removed, use the Filter Life Indicator with Mounting Bracket
(12) as a template for marking the location of the mounting screws.
2. Connect one hose from the T-fitting to the Stop Valve on the Filter Life
Indicator Module. Connect the other hose from the Filter Life Indicator
Module outlet, up to the faucet. Make sure that all connections are at least
finger tight.
3. Attach the Filter Life Indicator with Mounting Bracket securely to the wall
using the self threading screws (supplied). If the cabinet wall is not solid
wood, locate the bracket so that the screws penetrate a wall stud to allow
adequate support for the weight of the filter unit.
4. Using 2 wrenches, tighten all hoses securely to the Filter Life Indicator
Module. Use one wrench to hold the bracket firmly while using the second
wrench to tighten the hose nut. Attach filter to the Filter Mounting Bracket
(See “Filter Installation/Replacement” on page 10). Connect LED Wire to the Filter
Life Indicator Module.
CAUTION: Take care not to overtighten or crossthread the hose
connections on the plastic threads of the Filter Life Indicator Module.
