READ AND SAVE FOR THE
CONSUMER WARNING: Risk of scalding or other severe injury.
• Before completing installation, the installer must set the maximum water temperature setting of this valve to minimize the risks associated with scalding hazards according to ASTM F 444.
• Do not install a shut-off device on either outlet of this valve. The installation of any such device may create a cross-ﬂow condition at the valve and affect the water temperature.
• Factors that change the temperature of the water supplied to the valve, such as seasonal water temperature changes, and water heater replacement or servicing, will change the maximum water temperature supplied by the valve and may create a scalding hazard. The pressure-balanced valve will not compensate for changes in the water supply temperature; adjust the maximum water temperature setting of this pressure-balanced valve when such changes occur.
• Pressure-balanced valves may not provide protection against scalding if there is a failure of other temperature-limiting devices elsewhere in the plumbing system.
WARNING: Risk of product damage. Only silicone based lubricants should be used with these valves. Use of petroleum based lubricants on the valve is harmful to the O-rings, seals, and plastic components. Use of petroleum based lubricants will void the warranty.
The installer is responsible for installing the valve and adjusting the maximum water temperature of this pressure-balanced valve according to instructions.
This valve meets or exceeds ANSI A112.18.1 and ASSE 1016.

Optional Temperature Limiting Adjustment CAUTION: Risk of personal injury. The water temperature should never be set above 120°F (49°C).
Turn the valve clockwise to the full open position and let the hot water run for several minutes. Position a thermometer in the water stream and check the temperature.
For minor water temperature changes, adjust the setscrew, and recheck the water temperature.
For major water temperature changes, remove the O-ring and collar from the valve stem. Slowly rotate the valve stem until the desired water temperature is reached.
Reinstall the collar on the valve stem with the setscrew against the side of the tab.
Reinstall the O-ring, rotate the valve stem counterclockwise to shut the water off, and recheck the water temperature.

À LIRE ET À LAISSER AU CLIENTAVERTISSEMENT : Risque de brûlures ou autres blessures graves.
• Avant de commencer l’installation, l’installateur doit régler la température maximale de l’eau de cette valve pour réduire au minimum les risques de brûlures, ceci conformément à la norme ASTM F 444.
• Ne pas installer un dispositif d’arrêt sur les sorties de cette valve.
L’installation d’un tel dispositif peut créer une condition de débit croisé au régulateur et modiﬁer la température de l’eau.
• Les facteurs qui changent la température de l’eau fournie à cette valve, tels que les changements de température d’eau saisonniers, et le remplacement ou l’entretien du chauffe-eau, changeront la température maximale de l’eau fournie par le régulateur et pourront présenter un danger de brûlures. La valve à pression réguléene compensera pas les changements de température d’alimentation d’eau; ajuster la température maximale de cette valve à pression équilibrée si de tels changements se produisent.
• Les valves à pression équilibrée peuvent ne pas assurer une protection contre les brûlures en cas de défaillance d’autres dispositifs de limitation de température installés ailleurs sur le réseau de plomberie.
AVERTISSEMENT : Risque d’endommagement du produit.
Seuls des lubriﬁants à base de silicone devraient être utilisés avec ces valves. L’usage de lubriﬁants à base de pétrole sur la valve est nuisible pour les joints toriques, les étanchéités, et les composants en plastique. L’utilisation de lubriﬁants à base de pétrole annulera la garantie.
L’installateur est responsable de l’installation de la valve et du réglage de la température maximale de l’eau de cette valve à pression équilibrée conformément aux instructions.
