Installation Instructions:
Before installing the new mixer it is essential that you thoroughly flush through the supply pipes in order to remove
any remaining solder, swarf or impurities from your system. Failure to carry out this simple procedure could cause
problems or damage to the workings of the mixertap.
We strongly recommend installing particle filters and isolation valves to both the hot and cold feed pipes in an
accessible position. This will help to prevent premature failure of the valves and ease any future maintenance.
All parts should be removed from their packaging and inspected for any transport damage prior to installation.
Shut off your water heating system and ensure that your mains stopcock is closed. Open the lowest hot and cold
taps in the house and allow the water to run until the cold-water storage tank and pipes are fully empty. Please note,
the hot water storage cylinder (if applicable) will always remain full.
This mixertap requires a 35mm∅ tap hole, if replacing an existing tap, remove the tap & clean the end of the feed
pipes using wire wool the tap hole area should be free from dirt and sealant.
Loosely position the tap and tail pipes to check if any alteration to the existing pipework is required, if this is the case
do this now.
Once you have visually checked the new fittings and connections, ensure that all taps are closed except the new
mixer tap which should be left open. Turn on the water supply at the mains stop cock. As the system starts to refill,
check carefully for leaks. Once you are fully satisfied that there are no leaks, turn on the water heating.
Clean the tap to remove any marks created during installation as instructed then place the cloth bag that has been
provided to protect the tap until it is ready for use.
Product Use
This product uses an innovative ceramic 180° turn valve cartridge. Starting at the off position; turning the handle
clockwise will firstly select cold water and then progressively increase the flow of the cold water.
At 90° rotation full cold flow is achieved. After 90° the valve starts to mix hot water into the cold stream. At 135° 50/50
mixed water is achieved. Beyond 135° cold water is progressively reduced until at 180° the valve produces full hot
water flow only. It is important to note although the hot water can be mixed with cold to regulate temperature, unlike
the cold, hot water flow cannot be reduced in isolation to the cold.
Example of turning block at 135°; 50/50 mixed
hot & cold water.
