T500 Tap Connection

The T500 requires that the water flow used to cool the column is carefully controlled. The best way to do this is by using the needle valve (flow adjuster) which is supplied with the machine. This allows for the precise control of water flow to the T500 column.

This is designed to fit onto a modern kitchen tap. When we say modern we need one that has an aerator on the end of it. This is normally a screw fitting which holds a piece of metal gauge in place and breaks up the water as its flows through the tap. You need to take this off and screw the the needle valve directly into the tap.

20mm BSP Tap Adapter.

If this is not an option then we suggest that you purchase the 20mm BSP Adaptor which will screw into the end of the needle valve. The 20mm BSP Adaptor will allow you to use a washing machine fitting or an outside style tap with an external 20mm thread.
