**NOTE: Mineral buildup can make the cartridge more difficult to remove in some cases. Additional force might be required to remove.

Installation & Re-assembly Of The Cartridge

  1. Using a soft nylon brush, clean the inside of the brass valve body to insure there is not any debris or buildup on the walls of the chamber. Be sure the chamber is clean and dry before inserting the new cartridge.

  2.  Look into the brass chamber to find a notch in the brass. Then, find the white, plastic tab on the side of the cartridge. Insert the cartridge so the tab is fully seated in the notch in the brass.
