Be especially careful when screwing threaded connections together. Do not tighten any connection if the parts are not threading evenly. Unscrew the parts and start over. Try to hand tighten connections as much as possible.
Although Phoenix faucets are 100% tested for proper functioning, problems may arise after installation due to sediment and impurities which are found in all water systems. In new installations, copper filings, solder, pipe joint compound or other sealing compounds and sand are commonly found. Older systems usually contain a considerable build-up of lime scale deposits. During installation, these impurities may be loosened from existing pipes, carried by flowing water and possibly clog your faucet upon first use.
Due to these existing conditions in most pipe systems, we recommend you flush the newly installed faucet as outlined in the installation steps.
