5. How to re-assemble your pump before use

After cleaning and sterilising your pump as in section 4:

How to re-assemble your pump before use

1. Wash your hands thoroughly. Place the silicone diaphragm and stem (c) into the pump body (f). Make sure it fits securely round the rim by pressing down with your fingers to ensure a perfect seal. This is easier if assembled whilst wet.
2. Push the white valve* (g) into the pump body (f) from underneath making sure the flat side of the valve is downwards.
3. Place bottle adapter (i) onto neck of bottle (j) Put locking ring (h) over bottle adaptor and screw securely onto bottle.
4. Insert the pump body (f) into the bottle adapter (i) and twist gently clockwise until it 'clicks' in place. WARNING - do not overtighten!
5. Place the forked end of the handle (d) under the diaphragm stem (c) and push down gently on the handle until it clicks into place.
6. Click the pump cover (b) onto the pump body (f). Carefully place the silicone petal massager (a) into the pump funnel (e) making sure it is perfectly sealed all round the rim of the funnel. This is easier if assembled whilst wet. To make the pump completely stable put the bottle into the cover/stand (k).
