Guidelines

Pre-installation Guidelines

Better use 25mm pipeline instead of 20mm to ensure better pressure of water. Lay pipeline straight & vertical to get maximum water pressure.

Keep the number of bends in the pipeline to the maximum, to get good water pressure.

All pipelines should have Vent Pipes to ensure smooth flow of water and avoid air locking.

Hole-to-Hole distance for mixers should be standard 165mm for trouble free installations of mixers.

Outlet of Storage Tank should be minimum 5cm above the bottom to avoid dust, sand and foreign particles flowing with water into the fittings.

Clean the overhead tank and pipelines properly before fixing the fitting/taps to avoid sand, cement & other particles clog the taps.

Don't use excessive force to tighten the fittings. Excess length of the threads should be cut to suit the space inside the elbows: also wrenches and spanners should be softened by using plastic or cotton inserts before tightening the taps.

Test all the concealed fittings for leakage before plastering and fixing of tiles.

Please get your Plumbing done by experienced plumbers only.

Post-installation Guidelines

Cover the taps / mixers with poly pack after installations, till they are put to regular use, to protect the finish from dust, strains, paint, chemicals and damages.

Dont´t use harsh cleaning agents like acids, alkalizes and abrasives. Use soft sponge or wet cloth with soap water or 100% dilluted vinegar to clean the fittings. However fine chalk powder can be used to shine the taps.

Clean the aerators (Foam Flow) at regular intervals to maintain good flow of water.

Fittings should be operated gently while turning off. Over-tightening gives friction to threads that reduce the files of the fitting.

Do not lean or put excessive weight on taps. Excessive weight can damage or even break the taps.

The following chart gives you an indication of the minimum required for getting a good performance from bath fittings.

S.No Product Min.Press. In Lb.Sq.in Min.Press. KGF/sq. cm Min.Press. In Terms of Height of Tank
1 QT, H/T or F/T fittings with Single Spindle 10 PSI 0.7 Kgf 07 meters
2 Q/T, H/T or F/T Mixers 15 PSL 1 Kgf 10 meters
3 Single Lever Mixers 20 PSI 1.5 Kgf 15 meters
4 Single Function Showers 15 PSI 1 Kgf 10 meters
5 Multi Function Showers 30 PSI 2 Kgf 20 meters
6 Flush Valves and Flush Cocks 07 PSI 0.7 Kgf 207 meters

∗ Kindly note that these figures are merely indicative. Water Flow rate depends on various other factors like Water Salinity, Dissolved constituents bends in pipelines, diameter of pipes used.

Half Turn ( New FRT Technology ) / Quarter Turn

PLATO internal fittings are made of Brass, which has high tensile strength & is corrosion resistant

PLATO internal fitting is made of Drop Forged Bonnet, the sturdiest form of casting, Valve & Spindle are made of extruded rod whose composition is lab tested.To establish the quality of PLATO internal fitting Performance Test is carried out for one-lac operations.Hydraulic Pressure Test is also Performed on Bonnet for leakage test.

Advance international Double 'O' Ring protection is provided at the bottom of the spindle to stop water entering the threads; this keeps threads lubricated resulting in lesser wear & tear and longer life.

Grease used for Threads as well as 'O' rings are Silicon based Compound Food Grade Grease, which are specially made for Metal-to-Metal and Rubber-to-Metal contact as per requirement.

Ceramic Disk is also tested for Alumina and Silica content, we test that Alumina content in our ceramic disk should be 95% to ensure its long life, Air Compression Pressure test is also performed for leakage test.

Single Lever Cartridge

Single Lever ceramic cartridge is used in 40mm diameter to ensure maximum water pressure.

Ceramic Disk is also tested for Alumina and Silica, we test that Alumina content in our ceramic disk should be 92% to ensure its long life.

Air Compression pressure test is also performed for leakage text.
