This “Thermostatic” water heating unit is specifically designed to take in cold or pre-heated water and heat it to temperatures suitable for domestic usage up to a maximum of 140°F (60°C). To obtain optimum performance and energy savings. The unit should be located as near as possible to the point of use.
The unit is supplied with compression rings and nuts suitable for direct coupling to standard 1/2 ” (5/8” outside diameter) copper or plastic piping. There is no need for additional screwed fittings and under no circumstance shall a blow torch be used on the pipe while the pipe is connected to the unit (serious damage to the electronic flow switch will result).
Also, ensure that pipes are clear of installation debris before fitting to the unit.
1) The unit should be mounted as close to the point of use as possible. For example, directly beneath a sink is ideal. Do not install the unit above a faucet as a siphoning effect will drain the unit causing heating element burn out.
2) This unit must only be mounted in a vertical position with the water fittings at the bottom of the unit. Mounting other than in the vertical position WILL cause heating element burn out.
3) The cold water inlet is on the right hand side and the hot water outlet is on the left hand side(as viewed from the front of the unit). Under NO circumstances can these be reversed.
4) Leave a minimum of 8 ’’
the unit for easy replacement of the heating element.
5) The unit should be fixed to the wall using screws in the four mounting holes at each corner of the backplate.
The unit should be installed below the level of all hot water outlets serviced by this unit.
PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE RELIEF VALVE This unit is not required to have a Pressure and Temperature safety relief valve(PTPV). Consult local codes to find out if one is required in your area. If local codes require the use of a temperature and pressure valve one should be installed on the hot water outlet pipe, before the ball valve
NOTE: ALL MOUNTING AND PLUMBING MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE ELECTRICAL HOOK-UP.
TEST THE INSTALLATION FOR LEAKS BEFORE CONNECTING THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY.
1 ) This unit is supplied with compression fittings, USE THESE; DO NOT USE TAPERED THREAD PIPE FITTINGS AND DO NOT SOLDER PIPE TO THE INLET OR OUTLET(SEE FIGURE 1).
2) Ensure that the pipes are correctly aligned with the inlet and outlet bosses in order to avoid excessive stress on the heater body molding.
When soldering pipe joints, remove the unit from the wall. Serious damage can occur if any soldering is done while pipes are connected to the unit. Run water through the supply pipe to remove all debris from the pipe before connecting the unit. Failure to do so could cause damage to the flow switch.
3) Install isolating valves (full flow ball valve type) in both the inlet and outlet lines. This allows the unit to be isolated for maintenance (figure 2).
4) When all plumbing is complete, inspect the system for water leaks at all the plumbing connections. If a water leak is present take corrective action. If a water leak is at the compression fitting, slowly tighten compression nut until it the water leak ceases.. Fully open both inlet and outlet BALL VALVES.
Run all hot water outlets fed by this unit, one at a time until the water flow is continuous and free from “gulping” and all visible air pockets.

1) Wire entry into the unit should be made through the lower right hand corner of the backplate via one of the “knockout” holes provided.
2) The “mains” wires should be connected to the slots in the terminal block marked L1 and L2(N). Ground lead must be connected to slot marked GND.

WARNING HOUSEHOLDS WITH SMALL CHILDREN OR ELDERLY PERSONS MAY REQUIRE WATEER TEMPERATURES OF 125°F OR LOWER TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL SCALDING FROM CONTACT WITH THE WATER.
1) Completely open both the inlet and outlet ball valves at the unit.
2) Open all hot water outlet serviced by the unit. If the outlet is a mixer type adjust to the hottest position. Run water until flow is continuous at all outlets.
3) Switch on electric supply at the circuit breaker panel. The power indicator light on the unit should now illuminate.
Water temperature may not be hot at this time.
4) Using the outlet BALL VALVE, slowly reduce the water flow until the desired water temperature is achieved at the hot water outlet. This should be 120°F to 140°F without mixing with cold water.
5) Turn the temperature adjustment screw counter-clockwise about 1/8 of a turn. Wait 10-15 seconds for the indicator light to begin pulsing. If the indicator does not pulse, turn the temperature adjustment screw counter-clockwise another 1/8 of a turn. Again, wait 10-15 seconds for the indicator light to begin pulsing. Repeat until the indicator light is pulsing regularly. This indicates that the temperature has stabilized at the set temperature. Check that the water temperature is sufficient for the application.
The thermostat is now set and the water temperature will remain constant when the indicator light is pulsing.
6) Check the performance of the flow switch by opening and closing the faucet a few times.THE POWER, INDICATOR LIGHT SHOULD ONLY ILLUMINATE WHEN WATER IS FLOWING THROUGH THE UNIT.
7) For accurate water temperature control at a mixer type faucet (single spout ), the cold water supply to the faucet should be restricted to give approximately the same flow rate of cold water to the faucet as the hot water exiting the unit.The simplest method of achieving this is by partially closing the cold water valve under the sink.
8) Drawing off cold water at comparatively high rates of flow elsewhere in the building while unit is heating water may starve the unit of supply water. This may result in premature element failure. Care should be taken not to starve the unit of cold water. To prevent this from happening, open fully the main valve in the cold water supply to the building and throttle back the control valves to the other cold water outlets.
