Introduction Thank you for your purchase of a Watts Pure Water under coun- ter filtration system with UV. With proper installation and mainte- nance, this system will provide you with high-quality water for years to come. All of Watts Pure Water water enhancement products are rigorously tested by independent laboratories for safety and reliability. Counter Top STEP 2 Drill a Hole for the Faucet in a Porcelain Sink Note: Most sinks are predrilled with 11⁄2" or 11⁄4" diameter hole that you can use for your RO faucet. (If you are already using it for a sprayer or soap dispenser, see Step 2). Step A – Determine desired location for the RO faucet on your sink and place a piece of masking tape on over where the hole is to be drilled. Mark the center of the hole on the tape. Sink Blue Tubing Green Tubing Hot the RO faucet on your sink and place a piece of masking tape on over where the hole is to be drilled. Mark the center of the hole on the tape. the RO faucet on your sink and place a piece of masking tape on over where the hole is to be drilled. Mark the center of the hole on the tape. Step B – Using a variable speed drill Cold STEP 1 Mounting System Under Sink Step A Locate a space under the sink that allows the unit to be mounted close to the cold water supply and allows for easy access during maintenance and filter changes. Allow 2" (50mm) clearance between the bottom of the filter housing and the floor of the sink cabinet. Step B Using the mounting hole on the bracket, mark the loca- tion for the mounting screws on the cabinet wall under the sink. Step C Screw the (2) screws into the wall at the marked locations. Step D The UV modules bracket is designed to be mounted without removing the screws. Hang the UV module on the screws using the mounting holes in the bracket. 2 Caution: Porcelain sinks are extremely hard and can crack or chip easily. set on the slowest speed, drill a 1⁄8" pilot hole through both porcelain and metal casing of sink at the marked center of the desired location. Use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep the drill bit cool. (If drill bit gets hot, it may cause the porcelain to crack or chip). Step C – Using a 11⁄4" hole saw, pro- ceed to drill the large hole. Keep drill speed on the slow- est speed and use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep the hole saw cool during cutting. Step D – Make sure the surroundings of the sink are cooled before mounting the faucet to the sink after drilling and remove all sharp edges.
Use extreme caution when drilling. Watts accepts no responsi- bility for damage resulting from the installation of faucet. OR Punch a Hole for the Faucet in a Stainless Steel Sink Note: If mounting faucet to a Stainless Steel Sink, you will need a 11⁄4" Hole Punch. The faucet opening should be centered between the back splash and the edge of the sink, ideally on the same side as the vertical drain pipe. Step A – Drill a 1⁄4" pilot hole. Use a 1⁄2" Hole Punch and an adjustable wrench to punch the hole in the sink. Change to the 11⁄4" Hole Punch to enlarge the hole The faucet can now be installed.

Step C - From the underside of the sink, slide on the location wash- Figure B: Complete Assembly er, star washer and Lock nut onto the stem bolt . Check for orientation the tighten lock nut securely . Step D - Locate the Blue tube from the Filters . Measure the tube from the unit over to the faucet and cut it to the desired length . Remove a the compression nut, plastic sleeve and tube insert from the parts bag . To assemble, place the compression nut on the tube first, then the sleeve (small tapered end of the sleeve must point to the end of tube) and then insert the tube insert all the way into the end of the tube . Step E - Push the assembled blue tube into the faucet until it stops . Slide compression nut and plastic sleeve down until you can thread nut onto the faucet . Use a wrench to securely tighten the compression nut while continuing to push the tube into the faucet 3 1. Long Reach Spout 2. Handle 3. Faucet Body 4. Escutcheon Plate 5. Black Rubber Washer 6.

Hot water will severely damage your system. WARNING: Do not use Teflon tape with the Adapt-A-ValveTM. For 3⁄8" Configuration For 1⁄2" Configuration Step A - Turn off the cold water supply to the faucet by turning the angle stop valve completely off. Step B - Open cold water sink faucet to relieve pressure. Step C - Choosing the configuration that fits your plumbing, at- tach the Adapt-A-ValveTM as illustrated in the four photos above. Step A Lift black faucet handle up on faucet to start flow of water through unit. Run 7 gallons of water through unit. Close faucet. Note: You may hear some noise as air is being purged from the unit and the first few glasses of water through the unit may be dark in color due to carbon fines. Step B Check for leaks. If you have any leaks, shut off water sup- ply to system, repair and restart unit. Step C Connect plastic electrical connector from UV unit to the plastic electrical connector from AC adapter. Step D Plug adapter into GFCI electrical outlet. You will see a pale blue light from the view port on the UV housing body. The light indicates that the UV lamp is on and working. Please follow these guidelines: Do not unplug UV unit from power supply. Turning system off and on will shorten the life of the UV lamp. UV should be on continuously for maximum effectiveness. The system requires a warm-up period for proper operation. Wait 20 minutes after plugging in the system before using water. Water not drawn from unit for a period of time may have a taste or odor and will be warm. To avoid this, allow water to run through the system for one minute before using.
