that could scratch the faucet.
• Tighten all hose connections by hand. Do not over tighten.
• Before turning main water supply back on, open several faucets around the house to
prevent pressure from building up. Remove aerator from faucet before turning on
water. Flush drain for several minutes before replacing aerator. DO NOT use joint
