Rough Valve Installation Guide
*Align the valve so the HOT side is facing you on the left, COLD on the right. Hot and Cold sides are
marked on the valve body.
*You may use the top or bottom outlet when connecting your volume control, but not both. Use the plug
provided to close off the outlet not used. If you are using multiple volume control valves, they all must
branch off the main line.
*Mount valve to cross support using shims and screws (not included) between wall studs. Use the
valves protective cover to determine the placement of the cross support.
*Use the provided plastic valve cover as your rough-in guide. This guide will show you the distance
necessary for proper placement of the valve in relation to the finish wall. This step will insure that trim
cover and handle will fit at the end of your installation.
