Advanced Bridge Valve™ Installation

Location:

The Advanced 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 Advanced Bridge Valve at the end of each line. Additional Advanced Bridge Valves are available at www.FasterHotWater.com.

Note: Do not use Teflon tape or pipe dope on Advanced Bridge Valve connections.


New Angle Stop Installation:

  1. Turn off water to the house and drain the water from the pipes.
  2. Turn off both the hot and cold angle stops (valves) below the sink.
  3. Disconnect existing hot and cold water supply lines from the angle stops and replace angle stops with with new angle stops.
  4. Attach new stainless steel advanced 1/2" x 1/2" supply lines to nipples.
  5. Attach other end of advanced supply lines to the appropriate "Cold Water In" and "Hot Water In" ports of the Advanced Bridge Valve. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
  6. Attach standard 1/2" x 1/2" standard supply lines to the appropriate "Cold Water Out" and "Hot Water Out" ports of the Advanced Bridge Valve. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
  7. Attach other end of standard supply lines to the faucet. Tighten finger tight plus a quarter turn with a wrench. Do not over tighten.
  8. Leave angle stops in the off position and turn the house water back on. Check for leaks.
  9. Open both the hot water and cold water angle stops and check for leaks.

Advanced Bridge Valve™ Operation

The following steps will determine if the Advanced Bridge Valve is operating correctly.

  1. Close the cold water angle stop below the sink.
  2. Quickly turn the hot water faucet on and then off to activate the pump.
  3. Open the cold water faucet.
  4. Water should flow from the faucet until warm water (95°F) reaches the Advanced Bridge Valve. The flow should gradually decrease until no water is coming from the faucet at which time the Advanced Bridge Valve has closed.
