WELLWORTH PRESSURE LITE VITREOUS CHINA SIPHON JET TOILET K-4413

BEFORE YOU BEGIN INSTALLER HAZARD NOTIFICATION

PRODUCT PROPERTIES

WARNING: Risk of injury or water damage. Contents of vessel under pressure can cause severe injury. Do not open or service before reading installation instructions or service instructions. Turn off water supply and flush unit to release pressure before attempting any service.

CAUTION: Risk of product damage. Do not use any oils or lubricants on the Pressure Lite system.

Pressure Lite System. Water surface to rim is 6-7/8” (17.5cm). 2-1/4” (5.7cm) passageway. For roughing-in and overall dimensions, see diagram on Page 3. Fixture dimensions are nominal and conform to tolerances by ANSI/ASME Standards (A112.19.2).

NOTICE: Due to the pressure within the vessel, the flush noise level may be higher than that of a gravity flush toilet.

CAUTION: Risk of product damage. The fittings in this toilet require no adjustment (except for possible gap clearance adjustment and winterizing, refer to Page 6). The fittings in this toilet are preset. Any adjustment or modifications of the product are not normal usage and void the warranty. WARNING: Risk of injury or product damage. Handle vitreous china products very carefully. Vitreous china can break and chip if you over-tighten bolts and nuts. NOTICE: For service and warranty on the Sloan Flushmate vessel and related components, see the Sloan Flushmate Owner’s Service Manual (included). Follow all local plumbing codes.

The supply stop should be 8” (20.3cm) above the floor line, and 7” (17.8cm) to the left of the closet flange centerline. Since all toilets do not have the same supply rough-in, you may have to change the location of the supply stop to install this toilet. Closet flange must be 12” (30.5cm) on-center from wall. Seat post holes are on 5-1/2” (14cm) centers. For most satisfactory operation, the toilet requires 20 p.s.i. (1.3Kg/cm) static pressure minimum at the supply stop. The pressure is not to exceed 80 p.s.i. (5.5Kg/cm) maximum static pressure.

Gasket

Set the new toilet upside down on padding. Firmly press the gasket onto the toilet outlet.

ALIGN AND SET TOILET Carefully align and lower the toilet over the closet flange and T-bolts. WARNING: Risk of product or water damage. Do not lift or rock the toilet after placement. A new gasket must be installed if you break the watertight seal. Apply full body weight to toilet rim to set seal.

SECURE TOILET Assemble the bolt cap bases, washers, and nuts on the exposed T-bolts.

Bolt Cap

CAUTION: Risk of personal injury or product damage. Overtightening may cause breakage or chipping of the vitreous china.

Nut Washer Bolt Cap Base

Hand-tighten the nuts, then tighten them an additional 1/2-turn with a wrench. If the T-bolts extend more than 1/4” (6mm) from the top of the nut, cut off any excess with a hacksaw, and file the cut edges. Wipe away any residue. Install the bolt caps.

INSTALL TANK Set the tank on the bowl, using the bolts as a guide. Center the gasket on the inlet of the bowl.

Tank Bolt

Assemble the washers and brass hex nuts onto the bolts, and hand-tighten evenly.

Gasket

Alternately tighten the brass hex nuts so the top of the tank is level with the top of the bowl. Pushing down on the top of the tank will make it easier to tighten the brass hex nuts. Tighten the brass hex nuts one or two turns past hand tight to obtain a level tank and watertight seal. CAUTION: Risk of personal injury or product damage. Overtightening may cause breakage or chipping of the vitreous china.

CONNECT SUPPLIES

Supply Shank Washer Tubing Coupling Nut

Carefully bend the supply stop tubing to fit. Measure for required penetration into the supply stop. Cut and de-burr the tubing. Install the connection hardware onto the tubing as shown. Hand-tighten the coupling nut first, and then the compression nut.

Compression Nut Ferrule Supply Stop

WARNING: Risk of property damage. Do not overtighten or you may deform the connections and cause a leak. Do not use tools to tighten plastic nuts.

PRESSURE LITE SYSTEM WARNING: Risk of personal injury or water damage. Contents of the vessel are under pressure, and can cause severe injury. Do not open or service before reading installation instructions or service instructions. Turn off the water supply, and flush the unit to release pressure before attempting any service. CAUTION: Risk of product damage. Do not use any oils or lubricants on the Pressure Lite system.

OPERATION The vitreous china bowl and tank direct the flushing water flow, and house the Pressure Lite system.

Air Inducer

The vessel contains the complete operating cartridge assembly, and is the container for the pressurized 1.6 gallons (6.1 L) of water used for each flush.

Actuator

Vessel

The control components consist of the pressure regulator and the air inducer. These components work with the incoming, pressurized, supply-line water to provide a regulated pressure flush to the toilet bowl.

Supply Hose

A complete flush cycle is two separate functions.

Overflow Valve

Trip Lever

When the trip lever is operated, the vessel plunger assembly is pressed, allowing pressurized water to be directed to the bowl for complete flushing action. As the water level in the vessel drops the plunger will close, stopping water flow to the bowl.

Pressure Regulator Screen

A checkport built into the vessel assembly allows any discharge of water into the vitreous tank to drain directly into the bowl. Water

After flushing, a charge cycle takes place. Supply line water flows into the vessel through the screen and pressure regulator. The water then flows across the air inducer, which mixes a small amount of air with the water, filling the vessel until a pressure of approximately 35 p.s.i. (2.5Kg/cm) is reached. The toilet will be ready for the next flush within 60 to 90 seconds. If the toilet is not ready for the next flush within that time, please refer to the troubleshooting chart on Page 7.

Air

START-UP Turn on the water supply to bring the Pressure Lite system to its operating pressure (approximately 1 minute). Check for leaks. Slight retightening of any leaking connections should stop seal leaks. If the toilet is leaking between the tank and bowl, carefully retighten the three tank bolts evenly. Check all bowl and tank connections for leaks for several days. Flush and repressurize the toilet three times to stabilize the system.

GAP CLEARANCE If the toilet does not activate, the gap between the actuator and plunger arm may need to be reset. Make sure the trip lever handle is installed, and the trip lever nut is tight. This is a left-hand thread; turn counterclockwise to tighten.

Gap Adjustment 1/16” (2mm) – 3/32” (2.4mm)

Setscrew Actuator

Make sure the water supply is on, and the supply line water has stopped flowing into the toilet. Loosen the setscrew. Turn the actuator until there is a 1/16” (2mm) – 3/32” (2.4mm) gap between the actuator and the plunger arm. Turn the actuator clockwise to increase the gap. Tighten the setscrew after the gap is properly adjusted. Plunger Arm

NOTE: Loss of gap clearance adjustment could cause leakage into the toilet bowl due to the plunger not sealing properly. This condition could cause a continual flow of water. If the problem is not corrected after adjustment, refer to the troubleshooting chart on Page 7.

INSTALL SEAT To install, use the seat attachment hardware and instructions packed with the toilet seat.

MAINTENANCE WINTERIZING Shut off the water supply. Flush the toilet. Press the actuator down for approximately one minute to drain water from the vessel assembly.

Air Inducer

Disconnect the supply line.

Actuator

Vessel

Remove the supply shank, and drain the water from the tank. Supply Hose

Press the actuator one more time, then pull it up to allow air into the vessel.

Overflow Valve

Trip Lever

Add antifreeze to the toilet bowl water to prevent freezing. Use recreational-type antifreeze commonly used in campers, motor homes, and boats.

Pressure Regulator

For start up, connect water supply and refer to the Start-Up section on Page 5.

IMPORTANT CONSUMER INFORMATION CONSUMER RESPONSIBILITIES If you live in a hard water area, you should make certain that the holes in the rim are kept clean for proper bowl flushing. Toilet bowl cleaners should be used at least once a week. Use a long-handled brush to clean the rim holes and to clean as far into the trap as possible to prevent mineral deposits from forming. Cleaning of the Pressure Lite tank system is not necessary. If cleaning is desired, use mild soap and water. Most toilet bowl cleansers are not harmful to the vitreous china surface of the toilet bowl. Please follow the bowl cleanser manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Do not use abrasive cleaners or solvents.
