***Care and cleaning tips
- Always test your cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area on the product before applying to entire surface
- Do not allow harsh cleaners to sit or soak on the product
- Wipe surfaces clean and rinse completely with water immediately after applying cleaners
- Clean the fitting with just a mild detergent (such as dish-washing soap ) and a damp cloth, then simply rinse off and wipe dry; you can prevent lime scale by drying the fitting after each use
- We strictly DO NOT advise the use of solvents or acidic cleaners, lime scale removers, household vinegar and cleaning agents containing acetic acid - they will attack the surface and leave your fitting looking dull and scratched because the formulas of commercially available cleaners are changed frequently
- Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth to clean, never use abrasive material like a bristle brush or scouring pad
- Wherever gold or platinum metal is used on products, use only warm water to clean and then dry the surface with a soft cloth
***Never use cleaners containing abrasive cleansers, ammonia, bleach, acids, waxes alcohol, solvents or other products not recommended for chrome. This will void the warranty.
- To ensure uninterrupted pressure of water, it is advisable to keep the pipelines straight with minimum number of bends, which will support smooth flow of water. Customer may / can use appropriate pressure pump to have adequate pressure of water for optimum performance of products.
- All the supply lines must have vent pipes. These vent pipes help in removing air-locking in the water supply to give a smooth flow of water from the fittings.
- Prior to plastering or fixing tiles, test the working of all the installed concealed fittings on a high pressure to check for leakage insert, if any.
- Place the outlet point in the overhead tank at least 25 cm above the ground level of the tank. This prevents the flow of foreign particles, sand etc. along with water supply into the fittings and thereby prevents the possible damage to the working parts. Clean the tank thoroughly before the supply starts. It is suggested that the overhead tank must be cleaned at regular intervals to avoid inflow of foreign particles.
- To protect the fine finish of fittings from dirt, stains and other damages during construction, cover them with cloth or poly-pack after their installation, till they come into actual use.
- Buy Hansgrohe products from company's Authorized Dealers only in India to ensure genuine quality material.
- Insist on genuine spares from company's local spare part dealers or its Authorized Stockiest in case of any repair or replacement.
- Strictly follow the instruction manual provided for individual items in their packing boxes for their correct installation & maintenance.
