Electrical Shock Hazard

Special care must be taken when drilling into
water pipes. Some water may remain in pipe.
• If an electric drill is used, it must be properly

grounded to prevent severe or lethal shock if
water should enter drill. Use only an electric
drill with a 3-wire power supply cord connected

to a grounded receptacle.

• Check with a qualified electrician if you are in

doubt as to whether your electric drill is
properly grounded.

• Only drill at top or side of horizontal drain

pipe. DO NOT drill at bottom of horizontal pipe
where water may remain.

Failure to follow these instructions could result in
personal injury or death.

Make sure sink faucet is turned off and allow



all water to drain from tailpiece. The drain

saddle valve must be installed above (before) the trap.

It should be mounted with the opening on the top of
horizontal drain pipe to avoid drain gurgling noise. If

this is not possible, it can be installed on a vertical
section of the drain pipe before the trap. For basement
installations, route drain line through an air gap to
laundry sink, floor drain or stand pipe.
