WATER QUALITY STATEMENT

WATER QUALITY IS THE MAJOR FACTOR AFFECTING THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR APPLIANCE. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WATER QUALITY, CONSULT A LOCAL WATER TREATMENT SPECIALIST AND HAVE THE WATER ANALYZED. YOUR WATER SUPPLY MUST BE WITHIN THESE GENERAL GUIDELINES:

TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS

LESS THAN 60 PPM

TOTAL ALKALINITY

LESS THAN 20 PPM

SILICA

LESS THAN 13 PPM

CHLORINE

LESS THAN 1.5 PPM

pH FACTOR

7.0-8.5

WATER WHICH FAILS TO MEET THESE STANDARDS SHOULD BE TREATED BY INSTALLATION OF A WATER CONDITIONER. FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION OF THIS APPLIANCE DUE TO POOR WATER QUALITY IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.

1.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

LOCATION

Allow space for plumbing and electrical connections. Minimum clearances are 2" on the sides and 6" on the back for proper air circulation. Allow adequate access for operating and servicing the steamer (36" at the front of the steamer and 15" above the steamer).

LEGS (OPTIONAL)

If the optional 4" adjustable legs are used, remove the four levelling feet on the bottom of the steamer.

LEVELING

Using a spirit level or pan of water in bottom of steamer chamber, adjust feet to level steamer front to back and side to side. After drain is connected, check for level by pouring water onto the floor of the compartment. All water should drain through opening in rear.

ANCHORING STEAMER

1.Place steamer in desired location with level counter top and mark four corners. Remove steamer and drill ½" holes as indicated in Figure 1.

2.Apply a bead of RTV or other equivalent sealant around bottom perimeter edge of steamer. Failure to comply with this requirement will void the NSF label.

3.Set steamer on counter and bolt down securely with 3/8 - 16 bolts.

DRAIN CONNECTIONS

The drain connection must be 1" IPS vertically down, preferably with one elbow only, and maximum length of 6 feet, piped to an open air gap type drain.

FIGURE 2

CAUTION: In order to avoid any back pressure in the steamer, DO NOT connect solidly to any drain connection.

WATER CONDITIONING

It is important that the water supply connected to this steamer be softened to no more than 2.0 grains of hardness and have a pH of 6 to 7.5. This degree of hardness can be easily obtained with the use of properly maintained water softener. The use of a water meter will determine the water consumption and when the water softener needs regeneration or recharging. Failure to comply with these water condition standards may void the warranty.

Untreated water contains scale producing minerals which can precipitate onto the surfaces in the steam generator. Due to the temperatures in the steam generator, the minerals can bake onto the surfaces and components. This can result in early component failure and reduced product life.

Mineral scale on components causes several problems:

1.The surfaces of the heating devices become coated with scale, reducing the heat transfer efficiency. This can produce hot spots on the heating elements and result in premature failure.
