Attach the top bracket to the wall with an impact driver, driving the 2-1/4 inch lag screws into the studs.
Leave the first lag screw a little loose. This makes it easier to plumb the bracket before tightening the screw.
Set the pumps into the basin, attaching them with the suction cups. Each slate gets it own pump so there are three pumps in all (image 1). Plug in the pumps into the outlet (image 2), and make sure the pumps don’t run dry.
Hang the three water dispersers on the upper bracket (image 1). Direct the tubing from the water disperser into the basin (image 2).
Put the hose clamp around the tubing and connect the end of the tube to the pump. Tighten the hose clamp around the connection. Be careful not to over tighten the pump outlet fitting or it will crack.
If the water disperser gets clogged from debris that falls into the basin, use a paper clip to clean out the hose.
Hide the cord from the light valence behind the top bracket before the slate gets installed.
To prevent water from splashing behind the fountain, insert foam pieces over the tubes at each cutout in the pan. This also holds the tube in place.
Clean the slate with a cotton cloth and water.
