Before servicing this equipment, disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet. 2. Energy given off by the UV lamp is harmful to your eyes and skin. NEVER look directly at an illuminated UV lamp without adequate eye protection and always protect your skin from direct exposure to the UV light. 3. For complete disinfection, use ONLY genuine replacement parts. 4. Do not operate the unit if it has any damaged or missing components. 5. To avoid possible electrical shock, use only with a properly grounded electrical outlet. 6. Never perform any maintenance to the system unless you are comfortable in doing so. Contact the manufacturer for service instructions if required. 7. Do not use this system for any purpose other than what it was intended for. Misuse of this system could potentially cause harm to the user or others. 8. Your system is intended to be installed indoors and away from leaking plumbing. DO NOT plug the unit in if the system or any of the components are wet. 9. The disinfection system should be directly installed into a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). If the use of an extension cord is required, the cord must be manufactured with a minimum of 16 gauge wire and care should be taken to avoid potential tripping hazards. 10.We recommend that a licensed plumber or certified technician install the system. Before You Begin The following will be needed for installing the UV system: Tools • Pipe cutter, hacksaw or other specialized tools required to cut into your existing plumb ing (e.g. if you have PEX piping) • Soldering tools (torch, flux, emery cloth and solder) • Wrench (for tightening fittings) Other Materials • Inlet/outlet connections • Teflon™ tape 4 | Page Water Quality Parameters UV disinfection is extremely effective against microorganisms but only if the UV light can pass through the water it needs to treat. This means that the quality of your water is very important in order to ensure complete disinfection. Treated water should be tested for at the least the parameters listed below. If the water exceeds the listed parameters AQUA FLO strongly recommends that appropriate pretreatment equip ment be installed (equipment required will depend on parameters being treated): Hardness: <7 gpg (120 mg/L) – if hardness level is 7 gpg or slightly below the quartz sleeve must be cleaned periodically in order to ensure effi cient UV penetration; if above the water must be softened. Iron (Fe): <0.3 ppm (0.3 mg/L) Manganese (Mn): <0.05 ppm (0.05 mg/L) Turbidity: < 1 NTU Tannins (organics): <0.1 ppm (0.1 mg/L) UVT (transmittance): >85% (Please contact AQUA FLO if water has a UVT that is less than 80% for pre-treatment recommendations) You can have your water tested at a private analytical laboratory or by your local dealer. It is always recommended to install pre-filtration of at least 5 microns prior to a AQUA FLO UV disin fection system. 5 | Page Assembly Unpack the system and ensure all the components are included with the system.

7 | Page System Sizing All AQUA FLO UV systems are rated for a specific flow rate in water that meets the quality pa rameters on page 5. PLEASE NOTE that increasing the flow above this rating or disinfecting water that does not meet the quality parameters will decrease the dose and therefore compromise the microorganism inactivation. To determine flow rate follow these simple steps: Be sure no water is being used in the home. Open a faucet or tap nearest the pressure system and run until the well pump starts. Close the faucet and using a second hand watch, record the length of time in seconds until the pump stops. This is known as the cycle time. Then using a container of known volume, preferably in US Gallons, open the faucet or tap near est the pressure system and measure the amount of water drawn off until the pump starts again. Depending on the size of the container used, it is acceptable to turn the faucet on and off to empty the container. This measurement is known as the draw down. To calculate the pressure system flow rate divide the draw down by the cycle time and multiply that by 60. Draw Down__________÷ Cycle Time____________ x 60=__________Pumping Rate in USGPM Location For Point of Entry (POE) systems, choose a location where the main cold water line is accessible. The system must be installed after other water treatment equipment (softener or filters), but before any branches (See Figure 1). For Point of Use (POU) systems, install the unit just before the faucet. AQUA FLO recommends that a 5 micron filter be installed before the UV system for a final polishing step before the water is disinfected. Figure 1. Recommended POE Installation Location 8 | Page To facilitate lamp removal, ensure there is enough space at the lamp connector end to safely remove the UV lamp and/or quartz sleeve (See Figure 2). The controller will require a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI or GFI) outlet and should be mounted beside or above the reactor. PLEASE NOTE: All AQUA FLO UV disinfection systems are intended for indoor use only as they should not be exposed to the elements. Installation Step 1: The reactor can be installed either horizontally or vertically using the clamps provided. Vertical installation is the preferred method with the inlet at the bottom (lamp connection at the top) as it allows any air that may be in the lines to be easily purged from the system. Step 2: The use of a by-pass assembly is recommended as it will allow you to isolate the UV reactor. This will allow for easier access in case maintenance is required (See Figure 3).

Step 3: Use the supplied fasteners to mount the UV reac tor to wood or drywall. If mounting to an alternate material you will need to purchase the proper corresponding fasten ers. Step 4: For water supplies where the maximum flow rate is unknown, a flow restrictor is recommended so that the rated flow of your particular AQUA FLO system is not ex ceeded. The flow restrictor should be installed on the outlet port of the reactor. Step 5: It is recommended to have a licensed plumber connect the UV reactor to the water supply and may be a requirement depending on where you are located. leave at least an additonal reactor length to facilitate lamp and sleeve removal Figure 2. Lamp Removal Spacing Note: Installation of your AQUA FLO disinfection systems shall comply with

applicable provincial/state & local regulations. Figure 3. By-pass assembly 9 | Page

Step 6: Once the system has been plumbed in, gently remove the quartz sleeve from its packaging being careful not to touch the length with your hands. The use of cotton gloves is recommended for this procedure as oils from the hands can leave residue on the sleeve and lamp which can ultimately block the UV light from getting to the wa ter. Carefully slide the sleeve into the reactor until you can feel it hit the opposite end of the reactor. Align the sleeve so it centered along the length of the reactor, then gently push it in to lock it into the inter nal centering springs in the far side of the reactor. CAUTION: Pushing too hard when the sleeve is not aligned can damage the centering springs. Slide the o-ring onto the sleeve until it is butted up against the reactor. Figure 4. Quartz Sleeve Installation

Step 7: Hand tighten the provided gland nut over the quartz sleeve onto the threaded end of the reactor. It has a positive stop to prevent over-tightening. A firm force may be required to fully tighten the gland nut, but DO NOT USE TOOLS for this step. Insert the provided stainless steel compression spring into the quartz sleeve. The spring works with the lamp and lamp connector to create the proper lamp alignment. PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT install a UV lamp inside the quartz sleeve without the sleeve spring in place. Step 8: Install the UV sensor (GEN6 systems only). Align the flat portion so it faces the gland nut end and matches up with the half metal lip on the sensor port (see Figure 5). Insert the sen sor so it is fully seated and hand tighten the sensor nut. Figure 5. UV Sensor Installation Figure 6. IEP Connection Step 9: The reactor is now ready for water flow. When all plumbing connections have been completed, slowly turn on the water supply and check for leaks. Make sure the by-pass valves are functioning properly and that the water is flowing through the reactor. The most common leak is from the o-ring not making a proper seal on the reactor. For new installations, review steps 6 and 7. For older systems drain the reactor, remove the o-ring, dry it and reapply silicon grease. Reinstall the o-ring ensuring that it is properly sealed against the reactor and check again for leaks. Step 10: Mount the controller to the wall so it is above or beside the reactor to ensure that no moisture can deposit on any of the connections (see Figure 1). Always mount the controller verti cally. For monitored systems, insert the sensor connector into the IEP port located on the right side of the controller (Figure 6). For the sensor to be recognized by the controller, the controller power must be plugged in last. Do not plug the controller power cord in before the last step. 10| Page Step 11: Always hold UV lamps by their ceramic ends, not by the lamp quartz. Remove the lamp from its packaging. Again, the use of cotton gloves is recommended. Remove the lamp key from the lamp’s connector and set it aside for the next step. Be careful to not touch the key’s exposed contacts. Insert the UV lamp into the reactor, being careful not to drop it.

Step 12: Install the lamp key into the controller (GEN5, GEN6 systems only). The key always comes packaged with the lamp and sits on the connector. With the key removed from the lamp, orient it so the label is upright and facing you. The key will plug into the lamp key port on the right side of the controller (Figure 8). Step 13: Plug the lamp connector into the lamp. Note the keying for proper alignment (see Fig ure 7a, 7b). Insert the lamp connector into the gland nut and turn the connector approximately ¼ turn to lock the connector to the gland nut as in Figure 9. Figure 8. Lamp Key Installation Figure 9. Lamp Connector Step 14: Tighten the captive ground screw to the ground lug on the UV reactor to ensure proper grounding. Figure 10. Ground Screw Connection Step 15: Your system is now ready to be plugged into the appropriate GFCI protected outlet. Refer to the following section before any water is allowed to flow through the system. 11| Page System Disinfection With a new installation, or any time the UV system is shut down for service, without power, or is inoperative for any other reason, the lines in the home or facility could be contaminated. Use the following steps to fully disinfect the lines throughout the entire home or facility. Step 1: Check for and remove any “dead ends” in the lines throughout the home as these can harbor bacteria. Plug in the UV system and wait until it is ready for operation. Step 2: Remove the filter cartridge from the last sump and fill it with 1-2 cups of household bleach (most are 5.25% chlorine). Replace the sump and slowly turn on the water supply. Step 3: At a water outlet, run the water until bleach can be smelled. Repeat this for all faucets, toilets, shower heads, refrigerators, outdoor taps, the washing machine, dishwasher, etc. at the home or facility. Once finished, wait a minumum of 30 minutes before continuing. Step 4: Reinstall the filter cartridge into the sump and flush the chlorine solution by opening all faucets until chlorine can no longer be detected. Your home has now been completely dis infected with your AQUA FLO UV system ready to inactivate any microorganisms that enter the home. Cleaning the Quartz Sleeve Depending on the water quality, the quartz sleeve may require periodic cleaning. At a minimum, the quartz sleeve should be cleaned on an annual basis. The following steps outline a basic clean ing procedure. Step 1: If a by-pass assembly is installed, shut the inlet valve off to prevent water flow through the system. Otherwise, turn off main water inlet valve (and/or turn off the water pump). Step 2: Disconnect power cord of UV system from electrical outlet. Step 3: Release water pressure by opening a downstream faucet and then close the outlet shut-off valve (if any). If there is no outlet shut-off valve, expect water to drain from the system as the head pressure in the system will cause the water to flow back down. Step 4: Remove the captive ground screw from the ground lug on the UV reactor. Step 5: Remove the lamp connector from the reactor (gland nut) by pushing the lamp connec tor in and turning it ¼ turn counter-clockwise. Disconnect the lamp connector from the lamp. CAUTION: the lamp may be hot! Step 6: Being careful to touch only the ceramic ends, remove the lamp out of the reactor. Step 7: Unscrew the gland nut from the reactor exposing the end of the quartz sleeve. Step 8: Remove the quartz sleeve and o-ring by gently twisting and pulling the quartz sleeve. Step 9: Using a soft, lint-free cloth or towel wipe the sleeve down using a commercial scale cleaner (i.e. CLR® or LIME-A-WAY®). This removes scaling or iron deposits that may be on the outside of the quartz sleeve. Be careful not to get any moisture or liquids inside of the sleeve. Step 10: Dry the sleeve with separate cloth. 12| Page Step 11: Replace the o-ring and slide the sleeve back into the reactor following steps 7 and 8 from the installation section of the manual. Cleaning the UV Sensor Depending on the water quality, the UV sensor may require periodic cleaning. At a minimum, the UV sensor should be cleaning on an annual basis. The following steps outline a basic clean ing procedure. Step 1: If a by-pass assembly is installed, shut the inlet valve off to prevent water flow through the system. Otherwise, turn off main water inlet valve (and/or turn off the water pump). Step 2: Disconnect power cord of UV system from electrical outlet. Step 3: Release water pressure by opening a downstream faucet and then close the outlet shut-off valve (if any). If there is no outlet shut-off valve, expect water to drain from the system as the head pressure in the system will cause the water to flow back down. Step 4: Place something under the reactor to catch any water that may come out of the reac tor during the removal of the UV sensor. Step 5: Unscrew (counterclockwise) sensor nut from the reactor and pull the sensor slowly out of the sensor port. Step 6: Holding the sensor in your hand wipe the flat portion (sensor face) of the sensor with isopropyl alcohol using a clean lint-free cloth. Step 7: Replace sensor following step 9 from the installation section of the manual. Operation AQUA FLO systems come with a feature laden controller that incorporates both the lamp driver (ballast) and control features in one water-tight case. Four main controllers are available for the AQUA FLO systems (depending on your model). All four models feature a power factor corrected, constant current lamp driver with a universal power input. Please Note: While the LED or display screen is red and the buzzer is sounding the water from the system should NOT be consumed. If any water does pass through the system during this period, please follow the disinfection procedure as outlined in this manual before the water is consumed. For GEN4 and GEN5 systems, even though they have a visual and audible warning built into the controller, a green LED or status screen does not necessarily indicate that the water coming from this system is in fact potable (safe to drink). These systems do not measure the level of disinfection; they simply measure the “on-off” status of the lamp. Please have your water checked for microbiological contaminants on a regular basis. 13| Page

GEN4 Controllers LB4 Series LBH4 Series Simplistic in operation, these systems feature a tri-colour LED that indicating system status and a 4-digit display to in dicate lamp life remaining. Pressing the button will change the display to indicate total running time. When the UV lamp is on and within its operating age, the LED will be green. When the UV lamp is not on or the lamp life has expired, the LED will be illuminated red and an audible buzzer will be sounding. To remedy this condition, the UV lamp must be replaced with a new genuine AQUA FLO UV lamp.

GEN5 & GEN6 Controllers A full colour LCD screen provides the user with a detailed description of the system’s performance in addition to pro viding any applicable fault messages and system diagnos tics. The controllers used in both the GEN5 and GEN6 are identical. The difference is that the GEN6 series of products includes a UV intensity monitor. All GEN5 and GEN6 control lers include an “infinite expandability port” located on the right side of the controller. Simply plug in an optional UV sensor module into the expandability port of a GEN5 con

GEN5 / GEN6 Series GENH5 / GENH6 Series troller and the system will now monitor the UV intensity of the system!

GEN5 & GEN6Power-up Sequence On start up, the controller will run through a diagnostic start-up and the sequence will be dis played as follows on the colour LCD: Next, the controller checks for and initializes any optional modules that may be attached to the system. UV Sensor OR Module Check Solenoid OR Module Check 14| Page

A final module screen is displayed showing which specific modules were initialized. The controller then displays the lamp optimization screen for 60 seconds to allow the lamp to reach its optimum output. Finally, a final “start-up complete” screen is displayed. The system will now be ready to disinfect water flow. all detected modules lamp reaching max output successful start-up GEN5 Operational Screens On systems without the UV monitor, the default screen shows the AQUA FLO Home Screen. At any point during operation the user is able to scroll through the AQUA FLO Home Screen, Lamp life remaining, QR Code, Contact Info and Maintenance Parts screens by pressing the button located on the front of the controller. 15| Page GEN6 Operational Screens On systems with the UV monitor, the system will display the same screens as on the GEN5 except the UV Intensity replaces the home screen. The UV Intensity screen displays the level of UV light detected by the sensor. UV intensity can be affected by poor water quality, scaling on the quartz sleeve and/or sensor, lamp failure or lamp expiring. The following screens show the UV Intensity dropping. Below 56%, the numbers and warning sign turn red and an audible chirp is given by the ballast every 15 seconds. Below 51%, the screen is solid red and a constant audible alarm is given. This alternates with a screen indicating “water may be unsafe for consumption”. With the solenoid module, the controller de-activates the solenoid valve, shutting off all water flow.

audible chirp every 15 seconds audible chirp every 15 seconds constant audible alarm cycles with red low uv screen

Lamp Countdown Sequence The system counts down the number of days until a lamp change is required. GEN5 / GEN6 GEN4 At thirty days remaining, the LED or display screen will change to a yellow caution indicator. At seven days remaining, the sytem will additionaly repeat an audible chirp. Past the zero day threshold, the LED or display screen changes to solid red with a continuous buzzer. Systems with a display screen also cycles between a red “lamp expired” screen and a “water may be unsafe for consumption” screen while systems with the 4-digit display will change to “LE”. GEN5 / GEN6 16| Page GEN4 At any point during this sequence, the audible chirp or alarm can be deferred for seven days by holding the controller button down for a period of five seconds. On systems with display screens the number of deferrals used will be displayed as below. Once the deferral expires, the alarm will sound once again. The deferral can be repeated up to three times. PLEASE NOTE: At any point after lamp expiration, the water may be unsafe for consumption and should not be consumed without another form of disinfection. Lamp Replacement (GEN4 systems) After the lamp is expired, it must be replaced with the same part number as indicated by the la bel on the reactor. Begin replacing the lamp by unplugging the power for the controller, then re fer to Installation, starting with step 11 (page 11) for instructions on installing the new lamp. To reset the timer in the controller, firmly hold down the button on the controller while plugging the power cord back into the outlet. Continue holding down the button,the display will read “rSEt”, then 375 (or 420). The button can now be released, the lamp countdown timer has been reset. Lamp Replacement (GEN5 & GEN6 systems) After the lamp is expired, it must be replaced with the same part number as indicated on the Maintenance Parts screen or on the label on the reactor. With the system powered down, re move and discard the lamp key from the controller. The replacement lamp is packaged with a lamp key on the connector at the end of the lamp. Remove the key from the lamp and place it in the controller. Refer to Installation, starting with step 11 (page 11) for instructions on installing the new lamp. QR Codes A QR code (Quick Response code) is a matrix barcode first designed for the automotive industry. AQUA FLO uses the QR code to store a link to a specific page on our website. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application can scan the image of the QR code and over a wireless network connect to a AQUA FLO web page in the phone’s browser. AQUA FLO’s QR webpage has information on how to purchase replacement com ponents as well as a helpful video directory on system servicing (i.e. How to change a UV lamp or quartz sleeve). To access the QR code on the AQUA FLO controller, press the control button until the QR code screen appears. 17| Page System Troubleshooting Hard Alarms: The following give a constant audible alarm.

Boil Water Advisory: If any failure occurs on a AQUA FLO UV system, the water must not be used for human consumption until the system is returned to a safe operational mode. If the water is used for human consumption during this period, the water must be boiled (minimum 20 minutes at a full boil) prior to consumption. 19| Page Temperature Management Devices Your AQUA FLO UV system is designed to run continuously to ensure optimal disinfection. However, during periods when no water is drawn through the system, the energy from the disinfection process can cause the temperature of the water inside the chamber to rise. In extreme situations elevated water temperature or the fluctuation in temperature can lower the output of the UV lamp. In these cases, or if the elevated water temperature is a nuisance, AQUA FLO recommends one of the following forms of temperature management devices. Cooling Fan Designed for use on the AQUA FLO-HO systems, the fan runs continuously to cool the water by forced convection. The long-life fan is powered independently using a compact modular power adapter that operates from 90-265V (47-63Hz). Order PN 40040009 (only fits GENH4/GENH5/GENH6 systems). Temperature Relief Valve (TRV) On reaching a higher temperature, the TRV is designed to drain a small amount of water to allow fresh, cooler water to enter the system. The TRV works without power and comes complete with 10’ of drain line. Order PN 40040098 for 1/2” ports, PN 40040099 for 3/4” ports, PN 40040100 for 1” ports and PN 40040101 for 1 1/2” ports. Expansion Modules GEN5 and GEN6 controllers incorporate an “Infinite Expandability Port” (IEP) which allows for expansion to the UV sensor and all other modules. Each module (including the sensor) comes with both a male and female connection. Connect any device to the controller and all subse quent devices are then connected into the female end of last device added in a “daisy chain” configuration. The following optional expansion modules are available for use on GEN5 and GEN6 UV control lers. Contact your authorized distributor for purchasing information. REMOTE ALARM CONNECTION MODULE: Al lows for a connection to a remote device such as a buzzer, light, alarm system, PLC, etc., via a pair of contacts. In normal operation the OK and COM contacts will be connected, and in a fault condition (Low UV, Lamp fail, Power Fail), the Fault and COM contacts will be connected. Maximum Contact Rat ing is 1A-120V AC/DC (use 16-22 AWG). Order PN 40040008. 20| Page SOLENOID CONNECTION MODULE: Connects a NORMALLY CLOSED line voltage solenoid valve to the system. On a non-monitored system, the sole noid will only close on a lamp failure error. On a monitored system, the solenoid is closed when the UV level drops below 50%. Also note that in cases where emergency use of untreated water is re quired, the controller can be placed into a manual override mode allowing for the flow of water in an alarm condition. Order PN 40040006. 4-20 mA MODULE: Outputs a 4-20mA signal of the UV output to a remote device such as a data logger or computer. Order PN 40040007. ETHERNET MODULE: Allows for all controller func tions to be connected to a computer via an Ether net cable.
