Hi I'm Ken Samson with Grohe America a LIXIL company and I just want totake a couple minutes and show you how to install the spring on our pull-outfaucets.
So like the Menta and the Ladylux the spring just simply pushes up the hose,you can see underneath here the shank acts as a hose guide and a stop for the spring so itdoesn't go up into the inside of the body and jam it up.
However, with otherFaucets such as our Eurodisc here,it's a little bit different.
So with this once you have the faucet mounted.
I suggest you first extend and retract the hose from the head to make sure thatit's working smoothly.
If it's a little hard to pull out your feeling someresistance that has to do with the mounting and so to fix that what youneed to do is come underneath hereloosen up your nut, you're mounting nut, and push the faucet back towards thebacksplash and that will free up the hose extending the track smoothlywhat's happening is the faucets just a little too far forward and it's pinchingbetween the faucet and whatever your mounted at whether it's acountertop or a sink.
So you push it back bring it up for smooth retractionextension.
So with the eurodisc we have a piece that's called a stop, looks like afigure eight.
The part number 04174 so if it gets misplaced we do have a part number forit, and that just float down the hose, also use the spring.
The spring is 07240.
I give you that number because sometimes when you remove the spring from thecardboard to you can get tangled up and it's very difficultto untangle or it can be very difficult to untangle and it will shoot out the tube.
take the stop slide it up the hose and let it float up the the hose there.
Push your spring on.
just slide it up just like that.
Take the male end of the hose.
push it through the other hole the figure-eight take your coupler no toolsno teflon tape needed coupler has a sealit's like a pneumatic coupler just snaps right on.
now so that's how we use thespring with figure-eight now as of 2016 moving forward we're doing what wecall a running change and the running changes going from the metal hose wherewe're using a nylon braided hose and I'd have to say the main reason why we're kind ofdoing this, why we are doing this is you can hear the hose running throughthe body of the faucet and with a spout like the Menta it's a little bit louder.
so we're going with the nylon hose.
It'll be much quieter it's a little smaller in diameter so itmakes it for easier extension and retraction were eliminating the springand we're going to the weight and this is what we're calling easy docking.
With thathose the nylon braided hose will be much quieter will be able to hit on one ofour moments of truth which is early whisper much quieter extending andretracting.
That's what i have for pull-out hoses with springs.
