Approximate dimensions and footprints of the Spirit are shown in the illustrations. The black circles are the anti-vibration feet. The optimal countertop feedthroughs are within the grey squares. Check the pre-install guide for recommended feedthrough sizes.
The countertop should provide a solid base to carry the full weight of the machine: roughly 90kg for the Duette and 125kg for the Triplette.
Water supply from a water treatment system should be within 1.5m (5ft) of the machine. The water supply hose that comes with the machine has a half ball at the end of the 3/8″ nut connector. Discharge should not be further away than 1.5m, have an internal diameter of at least 40mm (1.5″) and should be fitted with a trap. There must be space nearby to locate the water pump with its electrical motor.
