Available Trim Kits (not included)
•Save time and frustration: plan the installation of both the faucet and the lavatory carefully.
•For best results, this unit should be installed by a licensed, professional plumber.
•Flush the hot and cold supply lines thoroughly, according to these installation instructions. Damage to the valve cartridge caused by debris is not covered by the Hansgrohe warranty.
•The cartridge comes in the box with the trim kit. The rough is equipped with a flush insert that will allow the unit to be pressurized while preventing cross flow.
•This rough must be completed with a suitable trim kit.
•No drain is included with either this rough or the trim kit. Contact the manufacturer of the lavatory for their recommendations regarding suitable drains.
Tool suggested for installation (not included): socket wrench with 17 mm and 27 mm deep sockets
Positioning the Rough
The intended spout should reach far enough into the bowl so that the water hits just ahead of or just behind the drain (to minimize splashing).
The rough should be placed high enough on the wall so that the end of the spout is above the flood level of the sink. Many municipalities require an air gap of at least one inch between the end of the spout and the flood level of the sink
spout outlet plug
This valve can be installed so that the handle is either to the right or to the left of the spout. This decision must be made prior to installation, as it cannot be changed at a later date without replumbing.
To insure proper fit of the trim, the valve should be installed so that the outside surface of the finished wall falls between the minimum and maximum markings on the plaster shields.
handle on right
handle on left
Install the grommets to the nailing in flanges on the valve body. If space permits, screw or nail the flanges to stud or header board to support the valve.
Flush the Valve
Remove the protective caps. Use a 17 mm deep socket wrench to remove the spout outlet plug.
Install a hose bibb and hose (not included). Direct the hose to a location where water can do no damage. Turn the water on to the valve and flush for 5 minutes. Turn the water off.
Use a 27 mm deep socket wrench to remove the cartridge cover. Remove the flush insert.
Turn the flush insert 180o.
Replace the flush insert and the cartridge cover. Tighten the cartridge cover with the deep socket wrench. Turn on the water again and flush for another 5 minutes. Turn off the water.
Remove the hose and hose bibb. Reinstall the spout outlet plug. Pressure test the unit.

Cleaning Recommendation for Hansgrohe Products
Modern sanitary faucetry and shower fixtures consist of very different materials to comply with the needs of the market with regard to design and functionality.
To avoid damage and returns, it is necessary to consider certain points when cleaning:
Cleaning materials for faucets and shower products:
Acids are necessary ingredients of cleaning materials for removing lime. However, please pay attention to the following points when cleaning faucets and shower products:
•Use only cleaning materials intended for the application.
•Never use cleaning materials which contain hydrochloric, formic, or phosphoric, or acetic acid, as these can cause considerable damage.
•Do not mix one cleaning material with another.
•Do not use abrasives, such as cleaning powders, sponge pads, or microfiber cloths.
Cleaning Instructions for Faucets and Shower Products:
Please follow the cleaning material manufacturer’s instructions. In addition, please note the following:
•Clean your faucets and shower products as and when required.
•Follow the label instructions. Do not allow any cleaner to remain on the product for longer than necessary.
•Regular cleaning will prevent scale buildup and water spotting.
•When using spray cleaners, spray first onto a sponge or cloth. Do not spray directly onto the faucet or shower product as drops could enter openings or gaps and cause damage.
•After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with clear water to remove any cleaner residue.
Residues of liquid soaps, shampoos, and shower foams can also cause damage, so rinse with clean water after using.
•If the surface is already damaged, the effect of cleaning materials will cause further damage.
•Components with damaged surfaces must be replaced, otherwise, this could cause injury.
•Damage caused by improper treatment will not be covered by our warranty.
