Watertwo Fitting Instructions
Decide the best place to site your new Watertwo valve. Make sure you have plenty of room below the valve to operate. If working at a high level please make sure any ladders are safely secured.
BEFORE CUTTING ANY WASTE PIPE MAKE SURE THE PIPEWORK IS 40MM ABS PIPE AND CAN BE GLUED WITH PVC CEMENT.
Step 1. First locate your external waste pipe from your bath, usually high level.
Step 2. Mark (min) 80mm in the chosen location
Step 3. Cut waste pipe, and clean off any burrs.
Step 4. We recommend you “dry fit” the valve at this point to make sure you have cut the correct lengths and to mark and drill for the 3x supporting screws to hold the valve in place.
Step 5. Make sure the pipe is clean from any dirt or grease. Use PVC cement to glue pipe all around the pipe around 30-40mm deep.
Step 6. Push valve fully home and clean any excess glue off.
Step 7. Repeat the process for the other side and gently bring the pipe and valve away from the wall until the pipe can be inserted into the valve and then gently push back to the wall so the valve is fully engaged. Clean off any excess glue.
Step 8. If the 3 x fixing screws haven’t been completed beforehand do it at this point.
Step 9. Cut the cord in half and attach it to the valve lid on either side.
Step 10. Pull cords together and hold directly below the valve approx 300mm to mark the first eyelet screw.
Step 11. Fix the eyelet screw and feed both cords through and then mark and fix the second eyelet approx 300mm below the first one.
Step 12. Attach the 2x toggles supplied to the end of the cords.
Step 13. Attach a 16mm ID (21mmOD) hose pipe to the outlet of the valve and secure with a stainless steel jubilee clip.
Using PVC Cement will permanently fix the valve to the pipe so any mistakes cannot be rectified. If you are unsure you can now buy universal adaptors so the valve can be taken out and used again. See the website for more details.
