How do you attach the copper tube?
The illustration shows a copper tube in the repair kit. How does it attach to the existing copper tubing on the unit? Do you have to cut the existing tubing and solder the new tubing to the old?
If the existing tubing is in proper working order it will not need to be replaced, however if your existing tubing needs to be replaced, the connection will vary according to the model of the unit. On most units, it connects via a push connect fitting, but some units do require that it be soldered in place. If you would like to contact us at 1-800-GRAINGER with your drinking fountain model number we will be happy to verify which connection type your unit has.
