Important
● We recommend that this product is installed by a qualified professional contractor. Such as a plumber who is certified by NVQ
(National Vocational Qualification) or SNVQ (Scottish National Vocational Qualification) Level 3.
● Please check this product immediately to ensure that it has not been damaged and is complete. Before installation, please make
sure this product is the correct model and you have all the parts required for installation and using.
● All the taps should be supplied with hot and cold water at balanced pressure. If not, then the mixing function will not work correctly.
It is necessary to fit non-return valves on both hot and cold feeds pipe. These are not supplied.
● Please flush the water system to ensure that no metal swarf, solder, and other impurities can enter the taps.
● Turn off water supply before commencing work, this should be done at the isolating valves of inlet feeds if fitted or main stopcock.
● Please read these instructions carefully and keep it for future reference.
Working pressure
The tap is suitable for both high and low pressure installation. To ensure that the tap works well under low water pressure, the
cold water storage tank must be at least 2 meters above the installed position. The maximum static pressure is 10 bar, and
operating water pressure is 5 bar. Where the operating water pressure above 5 bar, then a pressure reducing valve must be fitted.
Straightener and aerator (alternative option)
Taps are all fitted with a flow straighter for use in low pressure installations.
An aerator is supplied in the box, and is an option that can be used in high
pressure installations. These can be interchanged by unscrewing the part,
and replacing with the alternate one. During the process do not loose the
washer, between the parts.
