How do I install the Under-the-Sink unit?
First, you’ll need the instructions, a pencil, two wrenches, the two screws that came with the unit, and a drill. If you’d prefer to use video instructions, you can find them here.
After taking the system out of the box, the first thing you will need to do is look under your sink and turn off the cold water valve. Turn the valve clockwise to turn it off. Double check that it’s off by trying to turn the cold water on at the faucet. Note that the hot water will still be working.
There may be a little residual water left in the line so before starting the next step place a towel below the cold water valve. Use one of the wrenches to unscrew the cold water line from where it connects to the cold water valve. The UTS system has two lines with a different fitting on each side. For this step, take the line with the female fitting, attach it to the cold water valve, and tighten with a wrench.
Now, take the line with the male fitting and attach it to the line coming from the faucet. Again, use a wrench to tighten it, but this time you may need two wrenches to keep the nut from slipping.
It isn’t necessary to mount the system—it will work perfectly just standing on its own—but if you’re short on space under your sink, mounting it can help you save quite a bit of space. First, place the system against the wall where you are going to mount it. Use a pen or pencil to mark the eyelets so you’ll know where to drill the screw into the wall. Be sure to leave enough room below the filters to replace them when the time comes.
Next, set the system down and drill a screw into each of the two marks you made. Then, use the eyelets on the system to hang it on the screws. Secure it by sliding it to the left or right.
Finally, turn the cold water valve back on by turning it counter-clockwise. We recommend allowing water to run from the faucet for 3-5 minutes after this installation to clear out any air bubbles. Now just sit back and enjoy the peace of mind knowing you are drinking clean and safe water directly from your faucet.
