Cool, clear, filtered water - its great to be able to enjoy it from the convenience ofyour home and even better when you can enjoy it straight from a single tap anytime youplease.
This is the GE Under Sink High Flow Water Filtration System.
Today we are goingto show you how easy it is to install it in your own kitchen or virtually any other homesink.
Everything you need, except for a few tools, comes with the kit.
Before beginning,please read the safety instructions posted in your kit's installation manual.
Lets get started.
Decide if yours is a right hand or left hand installation.
The easiest way to install is to replace an existing soap dispenser or spray attachment,but if needed or desired, you can cut out a 1 1/4 inch hole in the sinktop or counterto install the new filtration system and control knob.
We are going to do a Right Hand install.
Be sure to first close the water shut offvalve and then open the faucet to drain from the pipes.
Now disconnect the cold water lineat the supply valve.
Hand tighten the angled stop valve adapter onto the cold water valve.
Finish tightening 1/2 turn with an adjustable wrench.
Be careful not to overtighten or crossthread.
Insert the 1 foot long yellow tube fully into the angled stop valve adapter.
Find the T fitting and insert the top of the 1 foot yellow tube in the bottom opening.
Insert the 4 foot yellow tube into one side of the T fitting and the 3 foot yellow tubeinto the other side.
Pull firmly on all tubes to be sure they are secure.
Now, find the cold water line adapter and hand tighten it into the cold water line from the faucet.
Finish tightening with 2 adjustable wrenches being careful not to overtighten.
Insert the 3 foot orange tube fully into the line adapter.
Now let's install a control valve.
If the control valve is installed on the right hand side, like this one, connect the 4 foot longblue tube to the port marked #2.
Connect the 3 foot long yellow tube from the T fittingto port #1.
Now connect the 3 foot orange tube to port F on the bottom.
Pull to makesure all the connections are secure.
Now let's place the control valve onto the sink.
Thread a locking nut at least 3/4 toward the bottom of the valve, then add one rubber gasket.
Be sure the electric wire is in the wire groove and under the nut and washer.
With the F port label facing towards you and the wire groove facing the back of the cabinet, insert thecontrol valve up through the sink opening.
You will probably need some assistance hereto hold it in place while you place the second rubber gasket onto the control valve followedby the decorative nut, turning fully until it stops.
It will only take about 2 turnsso do not overtighten.
Beneath the sink, turn the locking nut clockwise to tighten until it is firmlysecure against the sink.
The F port label should still be facing you after the lockingnut is tight.
Now insert the control knob, also known as the filtration controller, intothe valve body.
It has only one correct position so rotate it slowly until you feel it dropinto place.
Push down firmly to snap into place.
Now you can install the timer box.
Simply install 2 AA batteries.
Connect the wiring and mount in an accessible area nearthe under sink control valve.
Next, pick a location to mount the filter unit under thesink.
It should be easily accessible with at least 4 inches of clearance between thebottom of the canisters and the floor of the cabinet.
Also, allow at least 7inches from the front of the cabinet to allow proper routing of tubing.
The easiestway to mount is to remove the cover from the system.
Use this as your mounting templateto mark your screw locations.
Insert the 4 foot long yellow tube into the left side ofthe system - it is marked Inlet.
Insert the 4 foot long blue tube into the right sideof the system - it is marked Outlet.
Here's a quick review of the major steps.
So, now we are ready to try it out.
Turn on the water supply and check for leaks.
If everythingis good, you need to do an initial system flush.
To do that, turn on the cold water.
Turn the control knob toward the faucet and allow the water to run for 11 gallons or about10 minutes.
The last thing is to reset the timer by holding the reset button on the timerbox for about 5 seconds.
You'll see the ring at the base of the control knob will light for 5 seconds.
This is your new GE Under Sink High Flow Water Filtration System - the convenientway to enjoy clean, pure water at the turn of a knob.
Filtered water, anytime you wantit for cooking and drinking.
