Place the unit on a level surface as close to the intended water and electrical source as practicable. Inspect the unit for damage due to transport or installation.
Check the mounting bolts to ensure they are secure. Component mounting bolts are factory-torqued. If bolts are loose, refer to the manufacturer's specifications and use a torque wrench to reset them.
Carefully perform all duties and prestart checks indicated in the manufacturer's operation manual.
Each time the unit is moved or disconnected, the following start-up procedures should be followed:
Remove the rib holder assembly from the dryer drum before supplying power to the unit.
Attach the line from the water source to the pump.
Attach the drain hose to the drain and flex duct hose to the dryer exhaust. Both are supplied with the unit.
Attach the fuel line supply and return from the source to the unit.
Connect the power line to the power source.
Open the water shutoff valve and then open the air-relief valve. Close the air-relief valve after all the air has been bled from the waterline.
Switch the main breaker to ON.
Switch the pump breaker to ON. Check the pump operation.
Open the fuel valves on the unit.
Switch the dryer breaker to ON. Be sure to bleed the fuel line. Read the dryer operating instructions carefully.
Allow the water heater to fill before switching the breaker to ON. Be sure to bleed the fuel line. Read the water heater operating instructions.
