Important Technical Data
Minimum operating pressure 0.5 bar
Maximum operating pressure 5.5 bar*
Whilst assembling this product take care not to accidentally loosen any
screwed assemblies. PTFE tape can be used to ensure watertight joins
on threaded connections, do not over tighten connections or allow
pipes to be twisted or folded.
Maximum hot water temperature 70°C*
Recommended hot water temperature 46°C
The installation should be periodically checked for damage, if the
property is left unattended for a prolonged period we recommend
isolating water supplies.
Note: If these temperatures or pressures are exceeded,
even for short periods, damage can result. In these
instances a thermostatic mixing or pressure reducing
valve should be installed.
Hot and cold supply pressures should be as closely
balanced as possible for best results. Supply pipes
should maintain the maximum diameter until
immediately before the fitting. The differential between
the hot and cold water supply temperatures should be
sufficient to allow correct mixing function.
All Abode taps are either WRAS approved or
manufactured in accordance with recognised European
standards. Please ensure that your Abode product is
fitted in accordance with Local Water Byelaws. Where
hot and cold water mix within any product, then suitable
non return valves should be installed to the hot and cold
supplies to prevent backflow.

Parts and Contents
Mixertap body
Upper seal
Fixing stud
White triangular stabiliser
(for stainless steel sinks only)
Lower Gasket
Metal horseshoe
Screw the fixing stud (C) into the base of the tap (A).
Screw the tail pipes (H&I) into the base of the tap (A).
Pass the upper seal (B) over the fixing stud (C) and tail pipes (H&I), locate the upper seal (B) centrally on
the base of the mixertap (A).
Place the mixertap (A) onto the sink or worktop and pass the tail pipes (H&I) and fixing stud (C) through
the taphole. With the tap in place check that the tails (H&I) meet the hot and cold water feeds. If further
adjustment to the plumbing is required do this now. Note: do not twist, stretch or kink the tail pipes.
If fitting the tap to a stainless steel sink the white triangular stabiliser (D) can be placed where shown to
help to stabilise the weight of the tap. Otherwise stabiliser (D) can be ignored.
Pass the lower gasket (E) and then metal horseshoe (F) over fixing stud (C) and around tail pipes (H&I).
Fasten the fixing nut (G) securely onto the fixing stud (C) fixing the tap into its correct location.
Connect the hot and cold water tail pipes (H&I) to the water supply pipes using 15mm compression
fittings or similar.
After installation

Once you have visually checked the installation of the new tap and all connections, ensure that all other fittings are
closed except the new tap which should be left open.
Turn on your water heating system and ensure that your mains stopcock is open. Reconnect both the hot and cold
water supplies to this fitting.
Check the function of flow and function of hot, cold and mixed water.
Hot water tail pipe
(With integral NRV)
Turn off the tap and check carefully for any leaks around all connections on the fitting and adjoining plumbing.
If possible return to the installation after a longer period to double check for slower leaks.
Installation Instructions:
All parts should be removed from their packaging and inspected for any transport damage and completeness prior to
installation; you should read these instructions throughout before commencing installation. We do not accept responsibility for
problems that may occur through improper installation. Always ensure you have sufficient hot and cold water pressure
available to allow correct function before specifying or installing this product.
You should ensure that the product will both fit into the depth of the mounting surface available and reach the required outlet
position before installation.
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.
Shut off your water heating system and ensure that your mains stopcock is closed. Ensure both the hot and cold water
supplies are isolated before commencing installation.
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.
If pressure testing equipment is available check the installation to the maximum recommended pressure.
Clean the tap to remove any marks created during installation as instructed then place a bag over the product to
protect the tap until it is ready for use.
