I Have This As An Upcoming DIY Jober For Me ..

Hi Billy,

I was advised NOT to use a self-tapping shut-off. Install a standard shutoff with the proper 'step-down' for the water line. And be sure you don't tap into, say, an outdoor faucet of something because, in this case if it's cold where you live, it's probably off!

One thing I'm not sure of is whether it needs to be 'hooked up' so that it 'comes on' when the blower comes on. In other words, I don't think the unit is suppose to be 'running' when the unit is off. (I wasn't ready for this job yet but since you brought it up, I might as well ask too.) I'm looking at the same 2 units you are.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
