- Locations of the four vibration isolators are clearly marked on the template: use locations marked “50 Gal” for water heaters with 50 gallon capacity. Use locations marked “65/80 Gal” for water heaters with capacities of 65 and 80 gallons/
- Use the double-sided adhesive strip to adhere each vibration isolator to the drain pan in each four designated locations.
- The template should remain in the drain pan until the unit is placed on the vibration isolators. Center the unit inside the circle designated for the size unit being installed.
