Jaco Instillation Instructions
1)      Cut the tubing end squarely and remove the internal and external burrs.
2)      Insert the tubing through the back of the nut all the way through the nut assembly to the tube stop in the fitting body. If the tubing does not enter the nut easily, loosen the nut one turn and then insert the tubing all the way to the stop in the fitting body.
3)      Turn the nut hand tight.
4)      Wrench tighten the nut 1-1/2 – 2 turns.
5)      All nuts must be retightened when the system reaches project operating temperature.
Note: Squeaking sound when tightening nut is normal. For pipe threaded connections, Teflon tape must be used.
