SMARTAP WATER FLOW MONITOR
®
The optional Smartap Monitor indicates filter cartridge status by measuring the volume of water passing through the 104
Series Advanced Multi-Stage Water Treatment System. When water is dispensed, it flows through the system actuating the
monitor and recording the elapsed time for each dispense. Monitor indication is based on the cumulative number of
gallons passed through the system (elapsed time multiplied by flow rate). A green light indicates filters are functioning
normally. A yellow light indicates filters are nearing useful capacity and should be replaced. Power is provided by nine-volt
alkaline battery. Disconnecting the battery from the clip resets the Monitor. Installing a new battery each time filter
cartridges are replaced ensures an accurate indication of system performance and a continuing supply of high quality
drinking water.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
READ THIS ENTIRE INSTALLATION AND SERVICE GUIDE BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION
This 104 Series Advanced Multi-Stage Water Treatment System is designed for ease of installation and serviceability.
It is constructed with the finest materials available.
Using these instructions and paying close attention to parameters outlined within "CONDITIONS FOR USE" detailed on
Page II will ensure a successful installation.
This system must be installed in accordance with applicable city, state, and local plumbing codes.
To insure the system continues to operate at its optimum level,
it is necessary to have a routine maintenance and replacement schedule (Page 10).
The frequency at which filters need changing will depend on quality of feed water supply and level of system usage.
PREPARATION
2. Determine locations for component installation. Two
requirements for consideration are: access to cold
water supply line and to household sink. Specific
requirements are detailed in Table 2.
1. Check that all appropriate components are packed
with your system (Page II, Figure 1). Refer to
applicable Component Parts Breakdown (Figure 7, 9,
or 10) for a complete list of its constituent parts.

Component Location Requirements
NOTE
THIS DRINKING WATER SYSTEM IS FOR USE ON POTABLE WATER SUPPLIES ONLY.
COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS PLUMBING CODES 248 CMR SHALL BE ADHERED TO.
CONSULT WITH YOUR LICENSED PLUMBER FOR INSTALLATION OF THIS SYSTEM.
CAUTION
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 WATER THAT MAY CONTAIN FILTERABLE CYSTS.
IF SIGNIFICANT INLET WATER PRESSURE DIFFERENTIALS OCCUR, PRESSURE REGULATOR MUST BE USED.
III
INTER-COMPONENT CONNECTIONS
Connections between the cold water supply line, filtration unit, product water faucet, and optional accessories are
accomplished using plastic tubing and push-together quick-connect type fittings.
PLASTIC TUBING
QUICK-CONNECT FITTINGS
1. Cut tube ends square and straight. Do not deform
the tube (i.e., cause tube to compress its diameter so
it is no longer round).
Fittings consist of two parts: a Body and a colored Collet.
The Collet color corresponds to the tubing color to be
used at that connection (See Figure 2A.).
2. Make sure the outer surface of the tube is clear of
marks or scratches for a length equal to twice the
tube diameter. This allows the "O" ring to seat
properly against the tube.
1. To install a tube, push it through Collet until it seats
firmly at bottom of fitting (Figures 2.A. and 2.B.).
2. To remove a tube, push and hold the Collet against
the Body while pulling the tube out (Figure 2.C.).
3. Avoid sharp changes in direction when routing the
tubing. Sharp turns cause the tubing to flex and
deform which reduces its flow capacity and may
increase lateral stress on the fittings, causing leaks.
A. Push tube through Collet into Body
Figure 2
NOTE: Systems are shipped with a plug in each fitting
(prevents leakage of sanitizing fluid). Remove a
plug in the same manner as a tube.
B. Tube must seat firmly at bottom of fitting

4. Connect source water feed tubing to valve body
using compression fitting.
CAUTION: If no shut off valve is installed under
sink, close main water valve during this Installation.
a. Slide nut and sleeve onto tubing (in that order).
Locate shut off valves on water lines under sink. To
identify hot supply pipe and cold supply pipe, turn
both faucets on and let water run. As water flows, hot
water pipe becomes noticeably warmer.
2.
b. Install insert into plastic tubing.
c.
d. Thread compression nut onto valve body, tighten.
CAUTION: Do not install feed water assembly on hot
water line.
5. Turn saddle-tapping valve handle clockwise until it is

PRODUCT WATER FAUCET SITE PREPARATION
Refer to Faucet Installation Instructions (Pages 5 & 7) for site location and mounting hole specifications.
Primary considerations for site selection are convenience of use and an open area under sink.
Always check underside of selected location for obstructions.
STAINLESS STEEL SINK
PORCELAIN/ENAMEL OVER STEEL
OR CAST IRON SINKS
1.
1. Use a center punch to make a small indentation to
mark center of desired location.
CAUTION: A heavy duty, variable speed drill motor
with a spring-loaded porcelain drill set (Figure 5.B.) is
strongly recommended for this procedure.
2. Drill a pilot hole with a 1/8" metal drill bit, then enlarge
hole with a 3/8" metal drill bit.
CAUTION: The plastic sleeve supplied on pilot drill
(Figure 5.A) is to be positioned on drill bit against drill
chuck. This prevents chuck from contacting
porcelain after pilot hole has been completed.
3. Complete hole size by using a 1 1/4" chassis punch
available from your dealer (P/N 36201006).
4.
Using carbide tipped bit with plastic sleeve (Figure
5.A.), drill pilot hole completely through porcelain and
metal underneath.

B.
SPRING LOADED PORCELAIN SAW
C.
FINISH HOLE SAW
NOTE: Practice on discarded sinks to become
familiar with operation of porcelain cutter kit.
2.
CAUTION: Avoid high motor R.P.M. during initial
penetration of porcelain, as high drill speed will cause
excessive chipping.
Place spring-loaded porcelain saw (Figure 5.B.) into
drill chuck. Make sure pilot guide is inserted tightly.
Insert pilot guide into pilot hole. Push down gently on
drill motor to apply light pressure to porcelain surface.
Start drill motor turning as slowly as possible.
After initial cut has started, motor speed may be
gradually increased. The cut may require three to four
minutes to complete. Going faster could result in
excessive chipping. Be sure a complete ring has been
cut through porcelain to material underneath.
3. Place finish hole saw (Figure 5.C.) into drill chuck.
Make sure pilot guide is inserted tightly. Insert pilot
guide into pilot hole. Begin cut using a slow speed
and light pressure until porcelain (inside ring cut in
Step 2) has been penetrated to material underneath.
4. Remove saw from hole and clean all debris from
porcelain surface. Re-insert saw into hole and cut
through remaining material.
5.
Installation hole is ready, install faucet.

outside with washcloth and cleaning solution. Do not
use abrasive materials.
2. Shut feed water supply valve and open product water
faucet to relieve system pressure.
3.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove filter housings
until water flow stops. This reduces pressure inside
the system so housings may be removed safely.
CAUTION: Additional point-of-use devices (i.e.,
icemakers) may use filters along their supply line.
Remove any filter or treatment device installed
between module and delivery device before
proceeding.
Remove each filter housing by turning it counterclockwise. Remove each filter cartridge as its housing
is removed. Discard filters.
Icemaker: Transfer ice cubes from bin/tray to clean
freezer container for storage until procedure is done.
4.
CAUTION: Use sanitary rubber gloves for this
procedure to avoid contaminating sanitizing solution or
filters. Wear gloves whenever cleaning/ sanitizing
system components or handling new filter cartridges.
Remove filter housing "O" rings and wash them with
cleaning solution. Rinse them well with clean potable
water. Inspect the "O" rings for damage (i.e., nicks or
scratches). Replace damaged "O" rings.
®
CAUTION: Do not get the Smartap Flow Monitor
electronics, wiring, or connectors wet.
6. Rinse housings/manifold with clean potable water.
7.
Inspect manifold and filter housing "O" ring groove
area for damage (i.e., nicks or scratches). Replace
damaged components.
8. Place a small amount of "O" ring lubricant over the
surface of the filter housing "O" ring. Install the "O" ring
into the filter housing groove.

Smartap Flow Monitor Operation Requirements:
Monitor must be reset to zero each time system is serviced
and cartridges replaced. If monitor is not reset, there is no
way to determine when filters were changed or if the
system is still operating within specifications.
10. CAUTION: Tighten filter housings by hand only.
Do not use tools as they will over-tighten and damage
housings. Take care not to cut or pinch “O” rings.
Add 236 ml (one cup or 8 oz.) of sanitizing solution to
each of the filter housings and install them onto the
manifold (do not install filters at this time). Tighten
each filter housing by hand only.
Monitor is reset when the battery (Item 24) is disconnected
from the clip. Failure to replace battery may result in
yellow light when system is reconnected.
11. Slowly open the feed water supply valve.
Installing a new battery when filter cartridges are replaced
ensures an accurate indication of system performance and
a continuing supply of high quality drinking water.
12. Open product water faucet. Keep it open for 5
seconds after water starts coming out.
18. CAUTION: The wiring within the module cover
connects the monitor components. If wires, circuit
board, or connections are damaged and/or wetted,
monitor will not function.
13. Close the product water faucet.
14. Wait 30 minutes, open product water faucet and let
water flow 5 minutes.
Loosen three mounting bracket screws. Gently pull
module cover up and away from module body.
15. After 5 minutes, close feed water supply valve and
allow water to flow until system pressure is relieved.
19. Disconnect the battery. The connection to the battery
is a snap type connector (See Figure 11).
16. CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove filter housings
until water flow stops. This reduces pressure inside
the system so housings may be removed safely.
20. Remove the battery by sliding it out of its holder.
Remove the filter housings and dispose of the water.
Rinse housings and manifold ports thoroughly with
clean potable water.
21. Replace the battery with a new alkaline 9-volt
transistor battery (P/N 31300001).
22. Carefully slide the battery into its holder.
17. CAUTION: Do not remove protective plastic bag from
filters until so instructed.
23. CAUTION: Verify battery connector alignment before
making connection (Figure 11).
Open the top of the bag only enough to expose
the top cap and "O" rings. Place a small amount of
“O” ring lubricant on surface of each “O” ring.
Reconnect the battery by pressing the clip onto the
battery terminals.
Install the filter cartridges. Hold cartridge by its
protective plastic bag and insert the cartridge into the
manifold turning it 1/2 turn as it enters the port (See
Page II, Figure 1 for location of each cartridge).
Slide bag from cartridge and discard it.
24. Replace the module cover and tighten screws.
25. Turn feed water valve slowly to the open position.
26. Test battery connection by activating the monitor.
Pressing the test button or open the product water
faucet. If an indicator light illuminates, connection
is good.
CAUTION: Tighten filter housings by hand only.
Do not use tools as they will over-tighten and damage
housings. Take care not to cut or pinch “O” rings.
Replace each filter housing as each cartridge is
installed.
NOTE: Close faucet after light illuminates. Test
confirms connection, not system status.
