HANDY HINTS

GENERAL

  • The pump must be installed in accordance with AS3000 Wiring Standards and AS/NZS 2032:2006 Standards Installation of PVC Pipe Systems. Only qualified, licensed or accredited personnel should install pump.

  • Pump suction and discharge connections have molded pipe stops, DO NOT try to push pipe in beyond these stops.

  • When installing, use the fewest amount of fittings possible. Each additional fitting has the effect of moving the equipment farther away from the water.

  • Never run the pump dry. Running a pump dry may damage seals, causing leakage and flooding, and may void the warranty. Fill the pool pump's wet end with water before starting the motor.

  • When removing the pump lid, ensure the pump is stopped. Close gate valves in suction and discharge pipes. Release all pressure from pump and piping system. Never tighten or loosen screws while the pool pump is in operation.

SAFETY

  • Never block the pump's suction.

  • This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

  • The pump is to be supplied through a residual current device (RCD) having a rated residual operating current not exceeding 30mA.

MAINTENANCE

The only routine maintenance needed is inspection/cleaning of the pump basket/hair and lint pot. Debris or trash that collects in the basket will restrict the water flow through the pump. To clean the basket:

  • Stop pump, close gate valve in suction and discharge, and release all pressure from system before proceeding.

  • Unscrew pump lid (turn anticlockwise).

  • Remove strainer basket and clean. Be sure all holes in basket are clear, rinse basket with water and replace in trap with large opening at pipe connection port (between ribs provided). If basket is replaced backwards lid will not fit correctly.

  • Clean and inspect the pump lid O-Ring; reinstall on trap cover.

  • Clean O-Ring groove on trap body and replace lid. To help keep lid from sticking, tighten by hand only.

  • Prime pump.
