  • Step 3 : Install the dispenser's tank

     Install the dispenser's tank

    To find the best location for the tank hold it up to the back wall of the cabinet to find where the faucet tubes reach the connection at the tank. Then mark the location along the top and bottom of the wall and use the marks to locate the mounting brackets of the tank. Use the screws enclosed with the unit to attach the bracket to the wall. Then hang the tank on the bracket.

  • Step 4 : Connect the faucet tubes to the tank

    Connect the faucet tubes to the tank

    Use the couplings to connect the copper and plastic tubing to the top of the tank being careful not to kink the tubing. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connections.

  • Step 5 : Hook up the dispenser to the cold water

    Hook up the dispenser to the cold water

    Use a saddle valve or 3-way angle stop to tap into the pipe without cutting it first. Attach the valve along the supply tube between the angle stop and faucet and when it's tight around the cold water supply line, turn the valve handle clockwise to pierce the line. Keep a pail handy under the tank in case there's a leak. Open the valve to let the water flush through the system. Then connect the dispenser's supply tube to the cold water line and tighten the connection with the adjustable wrench.

  • Step 6 : Plug in the unit and adjust the thermostat

    Plug in the unit and adjust the thermostat

    Plug the unit into the grounded receptacle and follow the manufacturer's direction to adjust the thermostat. Let the water heat up and it's ready to use.
