*Use standard clear PVC cement and allow the valve AT LEAST 2 hours to cure before subjecting it to internal water pressure. DO NOT use fast setting ‘blue glue’ as it will rapidly deteriorate the ABS plastic used in the construction of the valve. Purple primer has a similar effect, if you use purple primer use it on the PVC pipe only.
*When screwing back together your FIMCO valve we suggest first turning the screw counter clockwise until you feel a ‘pop’ as the screws falls into the old thread. You can then turn the screw clockwise and tighten. This prevents the chance of stripping out screws as they form new thread in the plastic. It is always best to install with a hand held screwdriver to prevent over tightening of the FIMCO valve.
*Place your coupling nut on the pipe before you glue the coupling. Failing to do so may force you to cut the pipe and you may end up needing another coupling.
*When swapping cams make sure that there is an O-ring present on both sides of the cam being installed. Cams are installed with the numbers facing up. Inactive outlets will have no corresponding number on the cam.
