M70 Sapphire - Things To Know
The M70 Sapphire is designed for sink or countertop installation on surfaces up to 1.75" thick and fits all standard 2, 3 and 4-hole sinks. Only two holes on minimum 4” centers are required. Please refer to the specification sheets and example installations.
We strongly recommend that you have hot and cold shut-off valves located under the sink and we believe flexible supply lines are the most convenient way to connect your water supply for a sink/countertop installation.
Your Dishmaster is designed to use liquid detergents. Do not attempt to use soaps or soap powders. We recommend Dishmaster® Liquid Detergent Concentrate. Other name brand liquid detergents may work in your Dishmaster. Do not use detergents with lotion additives. Avoid detergents that appear opaque or cloudy rather than transparent.
If you have chosen an Arced Spout: water flow may not immediately stop after the lever handle is closed. This is a normal characteristic of any arced spout. After the valve is closed there is still residual water past the arc of the spout and gravity will pull this water from the spout. If your water pressure is high enough it may (immediately or over time) force the air from the peak of the spout and create a vacuum. If so, the water flow will stop immediately when the lever handle is closed.
Under these two circumstances the diverter valve may not always close:
If you divert the water flow to the wand at a very low rate of flow, the diverter valve may not return to the closed position when the main (mixer) valve is closed. Therefore, be visually aware of the position of the diverter valve before you open the main valve to turn the water on the next time.
Likewise, the diverter valve may not return to the closed position if the main (mixer) valve is closed slowly. Therefore, close the main valve quickly when you turn the water flow off so that the diverter valve will return to the closed position.
