Installation Instructions

Installation Instructions

DO NOT plug your cooler into an electrical outlet until you have water coming out of all faucets.

If You Purchased A Cooler Only:
There is a ¼" tube coming out of the back of your cooler to connect to your water source. We supply you with a ¼" x ¼" quick connect fitting when you purchase just a cooler.

If You Purchased An Install Kit With Your Cooler:
Included are 50 feet of ¼" tubing, 5 tube straps, 1 saddle valve, ¼" quick connect valve.

  1. Install the saddle valve on your water source pip (hard copper pipe only, follow instructions on bag).
  2. Attach tubing to saddle valve using the plastic insert & collar included with the saddle valve.
  3. Run the tubing to the cooler, securing the tubing with the tubing straps.
  4. Use the ¼" quick connect valve to connect to the ¼" tubing coming out of the back of the cooler.

(In order it should be: saddle valve to your water, tubing from saddle valve to ¼" quick connect valve, tubing from cooler into other end of quick connect valve.)

If You Purchased "In-Line" Filters With Your Cooler:
There are ¼" quick connect fittings at each end of the filters. If you also purchased the Install Kit, we installed the blue/white quick connect valve in the beginning of your filter(s). You must connect the tubing coming out of the back of your cooler to the other end of the filters. Note, on in-line filters there is a small white plug at the other end of the filters that must come out before you can insert any tubing. We have also primed your filters with 3 to 5 gallons of water so they are ready to go. Brackets have been included and can be attached to the back of your cooler.

If You Purchased Canister Filters With Your Cooler:
There are ¼" quick connect fittings at each end of the canisters. If you also purchased the Install Kit, we installed the blue/white quick connect valve in the beginning of your canister(s). You must connect the tubing coming out of the back of your cooler to the other end of the canisters. The filters and canisters are numbered for your convenience. You must unwrap your filters and install them properly. Run 2 to 4 gallons of water through to waste (a drain) prior to connecting to the cooler.

If You Purchased the "Aqua Bar":
There is a front compartment and if you ordered in-line filters we have installed them in this front compartment and they have been primed. To access the front compartment, grab one of the hand holds on the side and hit the Oasis logo on the bottom of the cooler. The switch to the hot water is also inside this compartment.

When Using Quick Connect Fittings:
Always cut tubing clean and straight with sharp scissors or a razor blade. Remove any small white plugs from the filters before trying to insert any tubing. Push tubing in all the way. When removing any tubing from quick connect tubing make sure you have turned the water off and relieved the pressure. Then while holding the collet (collar) down gently push the rubbing in and then pull out. See diagrams below.

Filter Installation Help

  1. Turn off the water supply. If you have the blue & white "John Guest" quick connect valve  before your filters you should turn that off, otherwise go to your source and use a valve there. Try not to use the saddle valve.
     
  2. Relieve the pressure from the old filters for the cooler by draining 8 to 16 ounces of water from the cooler. If you hear water running into the cooler, that means you did not shut the water off properly, go back and try again. Do not remove the old filters until you are sure the water is turned off.
     
  3. Remove and of the white stoppers from your new replacement filters so they are ready to be put on. If we did not prime your filters, run 3 to 5 gallons of water through them to the drain before hooking them up to your water cooler.
     
  4. To remove tubing or stoppers from the quick connect fittings on the filters, hold down the collet ring and pull out the tube or stopper (see picture below).

    If you have a hard time removing the tube or stopper, try pushing them in - then holding down the collet - then try pulling them out.
  5. Disconnect your old filter(s) and throw them away.
     
  6. Install your new filter(s) in the same order as the old.
     
  7. Turn the water back on and check for leaks.
     
  8. Drain 1 to 5 gallons of water out of your cooler.
     
  9. If you have any problems or questions please call us.
