Step by Step Instructions

Step 1:

Find a secure place to install the hot water tank under your sink.

Step 2:

Make sure the water tank is level.

Step 3:

Hang the water filter.

Step 4:

Start with the water valve from the wall. Connect the cold water from the faucet and connect a line to the dispenser.

Step 5:

Connect the filter to the supply lines' appropriate locations. One comes from the water supply and the other goes to a "T". This then hooks to the faucet and the tank.

Step 6:

Connect the faucet's copper lines to the filter very carefully.

Step 7:

Connect the last three hoses from the faucet to the water tank to their appropriate hook ups.

Step 8:

Test out your instant hot and cold water dispenser.
