12 FLUSHING
For Tub and Shower Combinations
1. Remove screws (12B) and plasterguard (12A).
2. Turn on Hot and Cold water supply lines. Pressure
must be approximately equal on both Hot and Cold sides
for valve to function properly.
3. Rotate stem (12E) counter clockwise allowing water
to flow from tub spout outlet (12C) until all foreign matter
has cleared the line. Repeat this step in the warm and full
hot positions. Water should not be flowing from shower
outlet (12D) during this test. If water is flowing from shower
outlet please check your valve to see that the casting mark
“SHWR” is facing up (see step 7).
