BEFORE YOU START: Please see specification sheet for rough-in information


Recommended fitting type for back-to-back installations.



Depending upon your plumbing and venting conditions, the flow from the toilet in a back-to-back installation may create a vacuum on the system and draw water from the opposing bowl. The National Standards Plumbing Code prohibits the use of a cross fitting for drainage as throw over is possible. The code does approve a directional “Y” style fitting with proper venting to direct the water downward and away from the other toilet.






WARNING: Overtightening of water supply line nuts could result in breakage and potential flooding. If the
connection leaks after hand tightening, replace the supply line. Do not use any type of sealant on the water
supply connection. Use of plumber’s putty, pipe dope, or any other type of sealant will void the warranty.




Please utilize the included signage should you feel it necessary to communicate to users how to activate
the hygienic touchless flush. The signage can be affixed to the top of the tank or around the flush actuator.



Cadet Touchless Toilet Operational Guide: Follow instructions below for installing batteries in Flush Control Module and Hand Sensor Module.

LOW BATTERY Indication:

FLUSH CONTROL MODULE: When waving hand over the Hand Sensor Module and it starts to slowly flash 12 times, indicates that the batteries in the Flush Control Module within the tank need to be replaced.

HAND SENSOR MODULE: When the batteries are low on the Hand Sensor Module, the module will flash quickly 5 times indicating the batteries need to be replaced.

Changing Batteries / Flush Control Module in Tank:

  1. Turn OFF water supply to toilet, then flush toilet to remove water from tank.
  2. Remove lid from tank and identify “Flush Control Module”. (ref. illustration of module on page 5 above)
  3.  Disconnect connector wires from flush valve to Flush Control Module to separate Control Module from Flush Valve and remove Flush Control Module/AA Battery Pack (ref. illustration on page 5 above).
    Note: Ensure wires do not fall into water or get wet.
  4. Using a small Philips Head Screwdriver, remove single screw holding Flush Control Module cover and gently remove cover to reveal AA battery pack.
  5. Remove battery pack and remove all 4 AA batteries, then replace with new alkaline batteries.
  6. Place battery pack back into Flush Control Module container making note of TOP & BOTTOM and orientation within the container (labeled on battery pack).
  7. Snap Flush Control Module cover over battery pack, replace screw and securely tighten.
  8. Connect wires from Flush Control Module and flush valve together, replace module back into flush valve holder.
  9. Turn On water supply, allow tank to fill with water.

Changing Batteries / Hand Sensor Module:

  1. Remove the 2 screws on back of hand sensor module and remove rear cover. Note: There is a rubber O Ring around the rear cover to reduce moisture from getting into the sensor which provides a snug fit and may require some effort to remove. A small flat head screwdriver will make it easier to remove.
  2. Remove 3 AAA batteries and replace with new alkaline batteries.
  3. Replace rear cover and screw into place.

NOTE: Replace Hand Sensor Module batteries within 3 minutes after installing batteries in Flush Control Module to allow codes to  match or synchronize to each other. After installing batteries, wave hand over Hand Sensor Module once which will complete code matching. If Hand Sensor Module lights up after battery installation but the toilet does not flush, remove battery, wait 1 minute, then replace battery to match or synchronize codes.

Sensor NOTE I: On hand sensor, hand needs to wave slowly over sensor 2 inches from surface. Also hand sensor needs to be within feet of the toilet. Keep hand sensor at a location where it will not accidently flush if something comes within close proximity of it.

Sensor NOTE II: When cleaning around the toilet, mainly the hand sensor, if person cleaning comes close to sensor the toilet may flush when not needed.

Installation of Hand Sensor Module:

  1.  The hand sensor module can be installed on a wall or in close proximity of the toilet within 3 feet using wall anchors and screws, double stick tape or Velcro Adhesive strips. Ensure placement of hand sensor can be reached by hand when sitting on the toilet.

Water Level Adjustment:

  1. Turn on water supply. Adjust water level to water level line indicated on the back of the tank. To Raise the water level in the tank, use a Philips screw driver, turn the adjustment screw on top of the flush valve (ref. illustration above on page 5) in a clockwise direction or in the direction of the “+” symbol.
  2. To Lower the water level in the tank, turn the adjustment screw on top of the flush valve in a counterclockwise direction or in the direction of the “-“ symbol.

Cleaning Flush Valve In-Line Filter:

  1. Shut OFF main water supply to toilet.
  2. Disconnect water supply hose to Flush Control Tower using adjustable wrench. (ref. illustration on page 5)
  3. To remove filter, there is a white plastic strip (tab) protruding in the center, using a small plyer, gently pull on the strip to remove the filter. Note: Filter has a rubber O ring around it which creates a snug fit and may require some effort to remove.
  4. Clean the filter with clean water and a soft brush.
  5. Re-install filter, securely connect water supply hose, turn ON water supply and check for proper operation.

Manual Flush Backup

If there is a Low Battery condition or some electronic failure of the Hand Sensor or Flush Control Module, the toilet can still be flushed manually using the Manual Flush Button on the outside of the toilets tank. Fully press and hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds until a complete flush is achieved.
