Advanced Bridge Valve™ Installation
The Bridge Valve should be installed under the kitchen or bathroom sink at the farthest fixture from the water heater. Branched plumbing systems will need a Bridge Valve at the end of each line. Additional Bridge Valvesare available at www.FasterHotWater.com.
Note: Do not use Teflon tape or pipe dope on Bridge Valve connections.
Ball Valve Installation:
- Turn off water to the house and drain the water from the pipes.
- Turn off both the hot and cold angle stops (valves) below the sink.
- Disconnect existing hot and cold water supply lines from the angle stops and replace angle stops with ball valves.
- Install 1/2" brass nipples in ball valves using Teflon tape and/or pipe dope. Attach new stainless steel advanced 1/2" x 1/2" supply lines to nipples.
- Attach other end of advanced supply lines to the appropriate "Cold Water In" and "Hot Water In" ports of the Bridge Valve. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
- Attach standard 1/2" x 1/2" standard supply lines to the appropriate "Cold Water Out" and "Hot Water Out" ports of the Bridge Valve. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
- Attach other end of standard supply lines to the faucet. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
- Leave ball valves in the off position and turn the house water back on. Check for leaks.
- Open both the hot water and cold water ball valves and check for leaks.
Bridge Valve™ Operation
The following steps will determine if the Bridge Valve is operating correctly.
- Close the cold water ball valve below the sink.
- Quickly turn the hot water faucet on and then off to activate the pump.
- Open the cold water faucet.
- Water should flow from the faucet until warm water (95°F) reaches the Bridge Valve. The flow should gradually decrease until no water is coming from the faucet at which time the Bridge Valve has closed.
