IMPORTANT:  Installation is simple for a qualified plumber, but it is critical that care is taken when following the installation steps. Failure to follow the steps correctly could permanently damage the element and void the product warranty.

A detailed installation booklet is included with all shipped products.

INSTALLATION CHECKLIST

1.  Ensure that the element is flush with the base plate and the seal is correctly inserted before fastening with screw.

2.  Check flange and thermostat and replace if worn or corroded. We recommend changing the thermostat at the same time, as with other elements.

3.  Turn base plate by one screw for horizontal geysers, to ensure thermostat sits to the side, NOT BELOW, the element. Remove earth screw and replace with round terminal, if needed.

4.  When connecting power ensure that the spade of the thermostat is correctly fitted into the element terminal. If it is incorrectly fitted and ends up between the terminal and the plastic cap it will cause a short and the element will fail. Do not remove the red plastic cover!

5. Insert element and turn base plate one screw to the right, fasten screws and then pressure test for leaks.

6. Turn thermostat down by 10 – 15 degrees. We recommend settings of 45 degrees as a starting point.

7. Once satisfied there are no leaks, turn power to geyser on.
