Countertop Installation with Diverter Tap
Installing the unit above the counter with the diverter tap takes around 10 minutes. With your unit you will receive a diverter tap that screws into the outlet of your tap (perhaps 90% of taps conform to a standard size, and have a removable diffuser nozzle), this is packaged in the same box as the ionizer.
This diverter tap shown here has two positions and simply switches the supply of cold water between the sink and the ioniser.
It easily screws into the outlet end of the spout in place of the water diffuser. To insert, use a plumbers wrench to gently unscrew the diffuser. Then use the collars supplied to find the correct fitting size, and screw the diverter tap back into the body of the spout. The diverter tap has a small push fitting, onto which you slip the supplied cold water supply pipe and route to the ioniser.
