Check that the new hoses and connections match the faucet and water connections.

 

Installation Steps


Step 1: Connecting the Hoses

  • Connecting the hose: Align the threaded portion of the hose with the water inlet at the bottom of the faucet and turn to tighten. Make sure the hose does not twist or kink when connecting.
  • Check connection: Gently pull on the hose to make sure the connection is secure and not loose, and tighten moderately with a wrench (do not over-tighten to avoid damaging the threads).

Step 2: Linking the filter hose

The 3 holes on the bottom of the 3-way faucet correspond to the 3 water inlets. Connect 2 hoses to the faucet first, and then connect one end of the iron filter hose to the filter outlet of the faucet.


Step 3: Secure the faucet

  • Place the support ring: If the faucet needs a support ring to stabilize the installation, first place the support ring on the hole of the sink.
  • Install Faucet: Place the support ring on the hole in the sink first.
  • Install the faucet: Align the base of the faucet with the holes in the sink and gently lower it. Make sure that the spout of the faucet is facing the desired direction.
  • USING WASHERS AND GASKETS: Place a washer (if available) underneath the base of the faucet and tighten the faucet onto the sink using the retaining nut for the iron filter hose. Use a wrench to tighten the nuts moderately, but not too tight to avoid damaging the sink or faucet.

Step 4: Testing

  • TURN ON THE WATER: Slowly turn on the main water valve in your home and check for leaks at the faucet and hose connections.
  • Check the function: Turn on the cold and hot water switches on the faucet, as well as the filtered water switch, to check for smooth water flow and accurate temperature adjustment.
