Installing a Water Purifier


WHAT YOU'LL NEED

SKILL SCALE
Medium

TIME REQUIRED
An experienced person can finish this project in about 30 minutes, a novice, in about one and one-half hours.

TOOLS
Power drill and bits
Screwdriver
Two adjustable wrenches
Tubing cutter

MATERIALS
Water purifier
Compression fittings
Bucket
Wood screws

Water Purifier Position the water purifier. Set the bracket so the bottom of the purifier hangs at least 3 inches above the cabinet floor. This will allow you to remove the cartridge easily. Predrill the holes, then attach the bracket to the wall with wood screws. You may find it easier to attach the bracket with the cartridge removed.

 

 

Water Purifier Tap into the water supply line. Place a bucket under the water line. Turn off the shutoff valve for the line. Use a tubing cutter to cut into the supply line at least 3 inches above the shutoff. Drain the line into the bucket.

 

 

 

Water Purifier Install a compression fitting on each end of the cut line. Insert the lines to and from the water purifier into the compression fitting. Tighten the compression nuts for the fittings using two adjustable wrenches.

 

 

 

Water Purifier Connect the inlet and outlet lines to the water purifier. Slide the compression nuts over each line. Place compression rings over each end. Insert the lines into the water purifier and tighten the nuts using an adjustable wrench.

 

 

 

Water Purifier Flush the system. Install the cartridge and turn the water back on. While you're checking for leaks, flush the system until the water runs clear.
