Most POU coolers have an in-reservoir float system that is covered with a bonnet like this model.
Careful thought must be given to the placement of the downrod. The downrod must not interfere with the float action and must fit under the bonnet. Additionally the baffle may need to be notched in order to accommodate the downrod reaching the bottom of the reservoir.
Our placement will be at the
back of the float plate.
Be certain that the Downrod will not interfere with float.
The manufacturer has already notched the baffle for us.
Drill a 3/16” hole and remove any burrs that the drill left behind.
Locate the spot where the downrod will enter the reservoir.
Make sure the silicone grommet is fully inserted into the hole.
Insert silicone grommet from the top of the float plate into the new hole.

Attach Air Diffuser to Downrod using a 1” section of Tubing.
Install finished assembly into reservoir making sure to line up Downrod in baffle
Downrod may need to be adjusted up or down in order to position air diffuser near bottom of reservoir.
The check valve must be installed with the air flow pointing away from the main unit and toward the reservoir.
Cut a 5” section of hose and attach it to downrod as shown.
Attach other end of downrod hose to the top of the check valve
Attach the remaining long section of hose to the bottom of the check valve.
The air filter can be placed in-line between the air pump and the SIP unit or it can be positioned in-line between the SIP unit and the check valve . (servicing convenience would determine location)
