You need to show a picture of what you want to do. I don't know what your talking about a ground
connection for a faucet.

Thanks Tom. I called the mfr and asked them. They couldn't tell me what the verbage meant either. So, I threaded on a !/2" IPS sharkbite with teflon tape and pipe dope. No leaks. Good to go.

I would call the mfr again and if they know ask them to check with technical or engineering group.

Now that we have a picture, maybe a plumber will know.

That's what I did. The person that answered was emailing with technical. I had to direct the person on the questions to ask. I finally got that !/2" FIPS would work but the answer wasn't totally reassuring if you know what I mean. Still, the sharkbite fitting worked fine. Just weird that the mfr would print something like that.

right here right now, over there later on.
A ground joint is a beveled connection, that a lav supply cone nut faces up to


you can use a braided flex connector to hook up the water
or theses lav nuts and a supply tube
or a female adapter

Southern California,
So, just so I understand correctly, this faucet is designed for just one supply line, and either for hot or cold water only?

Southern California,
If you like Shark Bite fittings. I personally use them only for temporary fixes, and don't consider them a permanent fix. Yes, I know some do, I don't.
