PLUMBING SYSTEMS

The hot and cold supplies must be balanced.

the cold feed should come from the cold-water tank and not in the mains.

CLEANING /GENERAL CARE

Chrome and gold plated finishes should be cleaned with warm water and a soft cloth rinsed and then dried. finishes should be buffed with a dry cloth.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MUST ANY AGGRESSIVE OR ABBRASIVE CLEANING AGENTS BE USED

Care should be taken when tilling to ensure no tilling adhesive comes into contact with the finish.

Do not use any type of denture cleaner near or around these products, as this will strip the plating.

BATH PANELS

Bath panels should not be tiled in. All tilling should be completed before fitting the panel, which should be fitted last. The panel may need to be removed later to service the taps or waste.

BATH AND BASIN TAPS

Prior to installation, please check that your plumbing system is adequate and that all pipes have been sufficienty flushed through.

1) Turn off mains water supply. The mains stopcock is usually found where the supply enters the building.

2) We also recommend that any water heating system is turned off.

3) drain the hot and cold water systems. To ensure complete drainage, open all taps.

4) To install. position the tap ensuring that the back nut washer is between the fixing nut and the bath/basin, then tighten the fixing nut. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.

5) connection to the water supply is usually achieved using existing pipe work and connections. Althoguth flexible tap connectors can be used if needed (15mm for basin, 22mm for bath).

PLEASE NOTE

to comply with water regulations isolating valves should be fitted in the pipe work beneath the tap. This enables each supply t be independently isolated which makes it easier to service and/or remove the tap.

6) Once all the connections are made, the mains water supply can be turned back on and the system refilled now check for any leaks. At this stage it is recommended that the whole system be flushed to remove any foreign matter, also check the seating is free from swat as this will interfere with the water seal between the valve and the seating.

All water heating systems may now be turned on.
