  1. With module drained and unhooked from power, inlet water, drain and tap, it is time to prep the module for removal of the old plumbing. Remove the side panels either side of the module. Remove the quick connects from the thermal resets. Also remove the phoenix connector from the P13 port.

  2. Locate the 24VDC euro strip that provides the power to the 3 way valve solenoid. Use a small flat head driver to loosen the screws so you can remove the 2 black wire leads to the solenoid. Using a 17mm open end wrench, remove the top brass nut from the water manifold in the right rear corner of the module. Leave the stainless nipple in the manifold. Using the 17mm open end wrench, remove the brass nut from the outlet boiler leading to the 3 way valve as shown. Leave the stainless nipple in the outlet boiler.

  3. Using a pair of small wire snips, cut and remove the zip tie from the drain tube and remove tube from the barb fitting on the water manifold. Now you can safely remove the old valve from the system.

    • Carefully remove the plumbing from the module.

  5. When preparing to assemble the copper tubing and check valve use the curved edge of the check valve as an arrow for the water path.  Note that the water will be traveling from the manifold inlet to the flow meter. Thread the brass nut of both copper tubes onto the check valve and use a 17mm open end wrench to tighten. Carefully insert the plumbing into the module.

  6. Thread the brass nut from the flow meter and use a 14mm open end wrench to tighten. Using a 17mm open end wrench, connect the top brass nut of the tubing to the water manifold in the right rear corner of the module. With the check valve tubing in place reinsert push connects to thermal resets and connect the phoenix connector to the p13 port.

  7. Reinstall the 3 way valve in reverse order, make sure to connect your 24VDC supply wires, and reconnect the drain tube to the water manifold. With the tubing and valve installed place the panels back on the module and reconnect water line, drain, power cord and tap connection. A good rule of thumb is to inspect the plumbing after water is filled and brought to heat. Make yourself a pour over and make sure there are no leaks.
