So I’m gonna put a little backup wrench on it and I’m just gonna use my channel locks I’m gonna whine this nipple in and again you notice how I’m using them the wrench is to work against each other this one is in one position this one’s in a comfortable position where I’m working it together rather than getting them away from each other to where it’s more difficult to control and again just wind it in nice and tight yeah okay I’m gonna turn this valve handle out of my way now this one I’m gonna go ahead and move the handle the first time out of the way on this guy on to hold him back and again snug up your nipples okay.
Now this unit is completely reap reap lumped and ready to be installed what I want to show you though is sometimes on this one here we have a nice wide spread on it real easy for the valves to go directly on no problem you’ll notice this other unit the valves the inlet and outlet are a little bit closer and not quite as convenient disease so in this case what you would do is remove your desk covers and means this is your hot outlet it’s already this side of the unit I prefer to keep my plumbing inside to you so you were just simply teflon paste teflon tape up that thread throw on a 90 degree street fitting like this and from there you would do what’s called a simple offset and you would throw it on this other fitting here and not your valve setup here and here so it’d be the same thing you did here but now you’ve just done a little offset on it to make it more convenient a little easier to work the valves once they’re in operation okay one last thing to install here before we complete our pre Flom which is called the relief valve this relief valve is a safety valve it’s majorly important that.
You do not forget to install this this is what protects you and your system from some sort of dangerous condition in your home very important this valve goes in it is a safety valve and it does protect you and it must be installed anyhow installation very simple threads into this fourth port of your hot water valve and as you thread it in again same conditions hand tight as far as you can and then a little backup ranch on the connection you’re tying into you and again wrench is working together as opposed to against each other now when you’re trying this one in basically you’re just gonna position it straight down just like your other nipples are because you want to have drainage off this never can this drain up it has to drain down it’s part of the code on it part of which required as far as get being a useful valve and also if it’s in a position where it’s on its side or something and you get water sitting in there.
It’ll ride out that spring and it won’t last as long as it should so it’s always best to downward position for the most part and it’s gonna drain off now we’ve completed our pre pump we’re ready to hang this unit on the wall okay now we have our unit mounted on the wall once it’s up on the wall you’re going to have your rough-in in this case this was a new rough-in where you can make your connections and you get to choose where they’re gonna be so you can make it nice Burdine just the way you like it but a lot of times you end up doing a retrofit or a replacement and a lot of times you might have a water heater that’s roughed in high and basically it be the same scenario as far as connections to the unit goes but when it comes to these flex lines this is what would change they come in a variety of sizes they come from two foot up to six foot eight foot in length and again these are products that are available through Charmin.
So you can always order these products through us as well next I’m gonna go ahead and connect the unit up basically you’ve got your relief line here which is your safety valve one I said is very important to make sure this is tied in and has a downward grade to it so all I’m gonna use is use this flex line it has a rubber gasket in it already so you don’t need any teflon tape or paste and you just bring it right up kind of position it in line it up with those threads and you go ahead and tie it in so you want to bring it in nice and hand tight first and you’ll feel that that gasket will bottom out and meet that nipple nice and clean and you can feel that it’s tight down to base there’s no gap in there and you’ll do the same thing this is our hot water valve I’m going to turn it to this side just to give me better access that nipple and do the same thing again I’ve got a flex line.
I’m just gonna roll it up into place the threads where they start and you kind of heard that click you might have picked up on it and those threads do engage they tend to make a clicking noise when they’re on the right spot so that kind of gives you a hint now say you might have the right spot of the wrong spot okay take that up nice and snug again cold water valve same thing relocate the position and a handle maybe yourself some room start that female up and again you’ll feel the bottom out slack in it nice and tight good same thing on your gas connection right up and again if it feels like it’s not going on right play with it because you don’t want to force it it should go on straight and it should go on clean with very little resistance by hand if it’s not something is wrong so in this case this one my Freddy is trying to give me a fit so I need to be a little more patient let me put yourself a little better angle and there she goes now you see again nice and smooth no fighting it if you’re fighting it there’s a problem back off okay.
