Here are a couple tips and recommendations when installing the Flo Device:
1. O-Rings - The Flo Device is includes 2 additional O-Rings along with the 2 that are pre-installed on the device. If it is necessary to replace the O-Rings on the Flo Device, please make sure to add a liberal amount of Silicone Grease prior to installation. Make sure that the O-Rings are properly seated to ensure the proper fit and installation.
2. Silicone Grease - Flo recommends the using high quality silicone grease. The pre-installed O-rings are lubricated with Dow Corning's Molkcote 111. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the application of silicone grease.
3. Teflon Tape - Flo recommends using high quality PTFE teflon tape when wrapping the threaded ends of the homes piping to ensure a proper seal. Always inspect connections, with water pressure, for leaks before sealing them from access. Contact email@example.com if you have any questions regarding the use of teflon tape.
4. Securing the Flo Device - When securing the polymer nuts on the Flo Device to the homes piping, Flo recommends that the installer "Hand Tightens" the polymer nuts and applies a 1/4 of an inch turn with the proper hand tool. Please take the necessary precautions to avoid over tightening the polymer nuts which may cause damage to the hardware.
