Step 1: Reduce
When disproportionate burden may occur pressure fluctuations in the system and then crack sealing, or hoses. At a water pressure of 5-6 bar will object to flooding and damage in a few minutes, this is normally pressure in water supply in my country. Many water valves, hoses, equipment is often manufactured to max. 6 bar. For this reason is good reduce and stabilize pressure in the home water system.
Step 2: Reducing Valve.
This device used to reduce the pressure - this is reducing valve (with water manometer) . Specifically, this is made in Italy.
Step 3: Cut Main Pipe
!!! STOP THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY VALVE !!! before this step and cut the main water pipe (with the special pliers)
Step 4: Install Device
Insert and fold all parts device according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use gasket or special sealing thread.
Step 5: Test and Setting
Opening main water valve,, setting, tightness test and functionality.
Step 6: Filter
Again !!! STOP THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY VALVE !!! before this step and cut pipe. Before valve installation is required particulate filter. Water is not perfectly clear and without this filter may soon damage the reduction valve.
