Installation Instructions for Fontana Peru Double Handle Faucet
1. Install the Spout
IMPORTANT! Use care when installing the spout to avoid scratching the finish.
Thread the spout into the spout shank until it is snug. If needed, adjust the spout slightly to position it so it points straight down.
Secure the spout in place by tightening the flange with the screws provided. Confirm that the O-ring is inside the escutcheon.
Apply plumbers putty or other sealant to the back surface of the spout escutcheon according to the putty manufacturer’s instructions.
Carefully slide the spout escutcheon over the spout and press firmly against the finished wall.
Remove any excess putty or sealant
2. Install the Handles
NOTE: If the finished wall is less than 5/8″ (1.6 cm) thick, no spline adapter will be used with the installation.
Determine the thickness of the finished wall.
If the finished wall is less than 5/8″ (1.6 cm) thick, use the 1″ (2.5 cm) long stem extension, 7/8″ (2.2 cm) long screw, and the 2″ (5.1 cm) long threaded sleeve.
If the finished wall is 5/8″ (1.6 cm) to 1-1/4″ (3.2 cm) thick, use the 1038270 hardware kit supplied.
If applicable, slide a spline adaptor onto the stem extension.
Place a stem extension the valve stem. Secure with the screw provided. Thread a threaded sleeve onto the valve body.
Apply plumbers putty or other sealant to the back of the escutcheon according to the putty manufacturer’s instructions.
Thread an escutcheon onto the threaded sleeve. Remove any excess putty or sealant.
Press a handle over the stem extension and move the handle to the closed position (Hot = Counterclockwise, Cold = Clockwise). Lever handles should be horizontal when closed.
If adjustment is needed to achieve the desired handle alignment, remove the handle, screw and spline adapter or stem extension. Turn the spline adapter 1/4 turn. Check the handle position. Repeat the procedure until the proper handle position is achieved. Secure with the screw.
Thread the handle assembly onto the escutcheon. To maintain the proper handle alignment, hold the handle in place with one hand and turn the base of the handle with the other hand.
Repeat the procedures with the second handle.
