Blocking area between the sink(Spigot) and the end of drain hose.

Drain hose kinked..

    If there are, the unit will not drain efficiently. Not only will water not be able to drain,

    food particles can get caught and buildup, further preventing  the drain function

Height of drain hose is too high or low.


Contact the installer and request correct installation by Drilling out the spigot correctly.

     If the customer wishes to do this themselves, they should make a hole by drilling to

     remove block area in the spigot and reconnect the drain hose.

Straighten any kinks or bends in the drain hose.

When the drain hose is connected to a sink S trap or waste disposal unit,   the hose must be

     looped up to the underside of the bench top and secured. (Height : 770mm~1000mm)
