How to install a Zip Chillmaster water chiller

Essential accessories to be installed

These water chillers are sensitive machines and can be damaged or stop working if the water is dirty or if the water pressure is too high. You might use municipal water but there are small particles in the water that can damage the solenoids. Water pressure is also a problem. Normal municipal water pressure during the day is 1-4 bar but this can increase to 8bar at night when nobody is using water.
