PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
B.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
B.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
3.3
INSTALLATION
A.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
B.
Plumbing Connections:
1.
Connect a suitable drain line from the evaporator coil drain to the pump's inlet. Ensure a downward slope of the line in order to provide proper gravity drainage into the pump.
2.
Connect the properly sized copper tubing to the discharge port's check valve assembly. Do not run piping higher than 80% of the recommended lift for the pump. For proper drainage of the discharge line, any horizontal run should have a downward slope.
C.
Electrical Connections:
1.
All wiring to the pump shall conform to local electrical codes. In areas where local codes are non-existent, the National Electrical Code applies.
2.
Routing of wires inside pump is critical. Keep all wires inside the pump's electrical enclosure clear of floats and switch actuation arms.
3.4
FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
A.
Pump Test: Check for proper pump function.
1.
Remove the drain line tubing from the pump inlet.
2.
Pour water into the pump's inlet until the pump turns on.
3.
Pump should evacuate water then turn off. It will leave about 3/4 inch (19 mm) of water in the tank after "pump-out" is complete.
4.
Reconnect the drain line tubing to the pump inlet.
3.5
PROTECTION
A.
Protect installed products until completion of project.
B.
Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
