:Risk of suction entrapment. Always turn off all power to the pool pump before installing the cover or working on any suction outlet. This pump produces high levels of suction and creates a strong vacuum at the main drain at the bottom of your pool or spa. This suction is so strong that it can trap adults or children under water if they come in close proximity to a pool or spa drain or a loose or broken drain cover or grate. Stay off the main drain and away from all suction outlets! :Risk of suction entrapment. The use of unapproved covers or allowing use of the pool or spa when covers are missing, cracked or broken can result in body or limb entrapment, hair entanglement, body entrapment, evisceration and/or death. □ Limb Entrapment: When a limb is sucked or inserted into an opening resulting in a mechanical bind or swelling. This hazard is present when a drain cover is missing, broken, loose, cracked or not properly secured. □ Hair Entanglement: When the hair tangles or knots in the drain cover, trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the flow rating of the cover is too small for the pump or pumps. □ Body Entrapment: When a portion of the body is held against the drain cover trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the drain cover is missing, broken or the cover flow rating is not high enough for the pump or pumps. □ Evisceration/Disembowelment: When a person sits on an open pool (particularly a child wading pool) or spa outlet and suction is applied directly to the intestines, causing severe intestinal damage. This hazard is present when the drain cover is missing, loose, cracked, or not properly secured. □ Mechanical Entrapment: When jewelry, swimsuit, hair decorations, finger, toe or knuckle is caught in an opening of an outlet or drain cover. This hazard is present when the drain cover is missing, broken, loose, cracked, or not properly secured. NOTICE: All suction plumbing must be installed in accordance with the latest national and local codes for swimming pools, spas and hot tubs, including NSPI standards and CPSC guidelines. :Risk of electric shock. Can shock, burn or kill. Connect only to a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit is protected by a GFCI. This unit must be connected only to a supply circuit that is protected by a ground fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and should be tested on a routine basis. To test the GFCI, push the test button. The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button. Power should be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the GFCI is defective. If the GFCI interrupts power to the pump without the test button being pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this pump. Disconnect the pump and have the problem corrected by a qualified service representative before using. :Risk of hazardous pressure. Stand clear of pump and filter during start-up. Pool and spa circulation systems operate under high pressure. When any part of the circulating system (i.e. locking ring, pump, filter, valves, etc.) is serviced, air can enter the system and become pressurized. □ Pressurized air can cause the pump housing cover filter lid and valves to violently separate which can result in severe personal injury or death. □ Filter tank lid and strainer cover must be properly secured to prevent violent separation. □ Stand clear of all circulation system equipment when turning on or starting up pump. □ Before servicing pool and spa equipment, make note of the filter pressure. Be sure that all controls are set to ensure the system cannot inadvertently start during service. Turn off all power to the pump. □ Place filter manual air relief valve in the open position and wait for all pressure in the system to be relieved. □ Before starting the system, fully open the manual air relief valve and place all system valves in the “open” position to allow water to flow freely from the pool and spa back to the pool or spa. Stand clear of all pool and spa equipment and start the pump. □ Do not close filter manual air relief valve until all pressure has been discharged from the valve and a steady stream of water appears. Observe filter pressure gauge and be sure it is not higher than the pre-service condition. ALWAYS disconnect the power to the pump before servicing. :Risk of harm. A clearly labeled emergency shut-off switch for the pool pump and spa jet pump must be in an easily accessible, obvious place near the pool or spa. Make sure bathers know where it is and how to use it in case of emergency. :Risk of harm. To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this product unless they are closely supervised at all times. :Risk of hazardous pressure. Pool and spa circulation systems operate under high pressure. Incorrectly installed or tested equipment may fail, causing severe injury or property damage. Read and follow instructions in owner’s manual when installing and operating equipment. Have a trained pool professional perform all pressure tests. □ Do not connect system to a high pressure or city water system. □ Use equipment only in a pool or spa installation. □ Trapped air in system can cause explosion. BE SURE all air is out of system before operating or testing equipment. See hazardous pressure warning below. Do not use compressed air to clean, test, or purge equipment for winter.

:All work must be performed by a qualified pool professional, and must conform to all national, state, and local codes. :Risk of harm. Pumps improperly sized or installed or used in applications other than for which the pump was intended can result in severe personal injury or death. These risks may include but not be limited to electric shock, fire, flooding, suction entrapment or severe injury or property damage caused by a structural failure of the pump or other system component. :Install to provide drainage of compartment for electrical components. :These instructions contain information for a variety of pump models and therefore some instructions may not apply to a specific model. All models are intended for use in swimming pool applications. The pump will function correctly only if it is properly sized to the specific application and properly installed. :Electrical controls such as on/off switches, timers, and control systems, etc. should be properly installed to allow the operation (start-up, shut-down, or servicing) of any pump or filter without requiring the user to place any portion of his/her body over or near the pump strainer lid or filter lid. Such installation should allow the user to stand clear of the filter and pump during system start-up, shut down or servicing of the system. □ Never open the inside of the drive motor enclosure. There is a capacitor bank that holds a 230 VAC charge even when there is no power to the unit. □ The pump is not submersible. The pump is designed for use with chlorinated pools only. For use with other applications, contact customer service. □ The pump is capable of high flow rates; use caution when installing and programming to limit pumps performance potential with old or questionable equipment. □ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) of reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Follow all local electrical and safety codes, along with the National Electrical Code (NEC). In addition, all Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines must be followed. :To minimize the risk of injury due to suction entrapment hazard: □ Pools and spas should utilize a minimum of two drains per pump. □ A properly installed and secured ANSI/ASMEA112.19.8 approved anti-entrapment suction cover must be used for each drain. □ Each suction cover must be installed at least three (3’) feet apart, as measured from the nearest point to nearest point. □ Regularly inspect all covers for cracks, damage and advanced weathering. □ If a cover becomes loose, cracked, damaged, broken or is missing, close the pool or spa immediately, shut off the pump, post a notice and keep the pool or spa closed until an appropriate certified cover is properly installed. □ Replace drain covers as necessary. Drain covers deteriorate over time due to exposure to sunlight, pool chemicals and weather. □ Avoid getting hair, limbs or body in close proximity to any suction cover, pool drain or outlet. □ Disable suction outlets or reconfigure into return inlets. :Before pressure testing, make the following safety checks: □ Check all clamps, bolts, lids, and system accessories before testing. □ Release all air in system before testing. □ Tighten pump trap lids to 30 ft. lbs. (4.1 kg-m) torque for testing. □ Water pressure for test must be less than 25 PSI (7.5 kg/cm2). □ Water temperature for test must be less than 100° F (38 ° C). □ Limit test to 24 hours. After test, visually check system to be sure it is ready for operation. Remove trap lid and retighten hand tight only. NOTICE: These testing parameters apply only to the models described here in. For other equipment, consult the manufacturer.

If this pump is installed in an enclosure/pump house, the enclosure must have adequate ventilation and air circulation to keep the temperature in the enclosure at or below the motor’s rated ambient temperature whenever the pump is running. □ Be solid - Level - Rigid - Vibration free. (To reduce vibration and pipe stress, bolt pump to mount.) □ Allow pump suction inlet height to be as close to water level as possible. Pump will not lift water more than 10 ft. (3 m). □ Allow use of short, direct suction pipe (To reduce friction losses). □ Allow for gate valves in suction and discharge piping. □ Have adequate floor drainage to prevent flooding. □ Be protected from excess moisture. □ Allow adequate access for servicing pump and piping. Risk of fire and burns. Can cause severe injury, property damage or death. Motors run at high temperatures. To reduce the risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the motor, let it cool for 20 minutes before trying to work on it. : When connecting pipe to pump with union half, use PTFE tape between pipe and union adapter. Union collar to pump should be assembled dry and hand-tight. 6 For Professional Technical Support call 1-844-241-5521 Thread sealant tape instructions: □ Use only new or clean PVC pipe fittings. □ Wrap male pipe threads with one to two layers of PTFE tape. Cover entire threaded portion of pipe. □ Do not over tighten or tighten past thread stop in pump port! □ If leaks occur, remove pipe, clean off old tape, rewrap with one to two additional layers of tape and remake the connection. : Support all piping connected to pump! Piping Use at least 1-1/2 in. (38 mm) pipe (use 2 in. (51 mm) pipe if possible). Increase size if a long run is needed. To avoid strains on the pump, support both suction and discharge pipes independently. Place these supports near the pump. To avoid a strain left by a gap at the last connection, start all piping at the pump and run pipe away from the pump. To avoid air locking, slope suction pipe slightly upward toward the pump. : To prevent flooding when removing pump for service, all flooded suction systems must have gate valves in suction and discharge pipes. Pool Pump Suction Requirements Pump suction is hazardous and can trap and drown or disembowel bathers. Do not use or operate swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs if a suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose. Follow the guidelines below for a pump installation which minimizes risk to users of pools, spas, and hot tubs. Entrapment Protection The pump suction system must provide protection against the hazard of suction entrapment or hair entrapment/ entanglement. Suction Outlet Covers All suction outlet covers must be maintained. They must be replaced if cracked, broken, or missing. See Testing and Certification for outlet cover certification requirements. All suction outlets must have correctly installed, screw fastened covers in place. Suction Outlets per Pump Provide at least two hydraulically balanced main drains, with covers, as suction outlets for each circulating pump suction line. The centers of the main drains (suction outlets) on any one suction line must be at least 3 ft. apart. The system must be built so that it cannot operate with the pump drawing water from only one main drain. There must be at least two main drains connected to the pump whenever it is running. However, if two main drains run into a single suction line, the single suction line may be equipped with a valve which will shut off both main drains from the pump. More than one pump can be connected to a single suction line as long as the requirements listed above are met. 7 For Professional Technical Support call 1-844-241-5521 Water Velocity The maximum water velocity through the suction fitting or cover for any suction outlet must be 1.5 ft. per second unless the outlet complies with the latest ASME/ANSI Specification for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. In any case, do not exceed the suction fitting’s maximum designed flow rate. If 100% of the pump’s flow comes from the main drain system, the maximum water velocity in the pump suction hydraulic system must be 6 ft. per second or less even if one main drain (suction outlet) is completely blocked. The flow through the remaining main drain(s) must comply with the latest ASME/ANSI Specification for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. Testing and Certification Suction outlet covers must have been tested by anationally recognized testing laboratory and found to comply with the latest ASME/ANSI Specifications for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirl pool Bath tub Applications. Fittings Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings (but at least two suction outlets). Avoid fittings which could cause an air trap. Pool fittings must conform to International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards. Use only non-entrapping suction fitting or double suction. Electrical : Risk of electric shock. Can shock, burn or kill. Ground pump before connecting to power supply. □ Ground motor before connecting to electrical power supply. Failure to ground motor can cause severe or fatal electrical shock hazard. □ To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to motor before working on electrical connections. □ Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) tripping indicates an electrical problem. If GFCI trips and will not re-set, have a qualified electrician inspect and repair electrical system. □ Exactly match supply voltage to name plate voltage. Incorrect voltage can cause fire or seriously damage motor and voids warranty. If in doubt consult alicensed electrician. : Risk of explosion. Do not ground to a gas supply line. 8 For Professional Technical Support call 1-844-241-5521 Voltage Voltage at motor must be not more than 10% above or below motor name plate rated voltage or motor may overheat, causing over load tripping and reduced component life. If voltage is less than 90% or more than 10% of rated voltage when motor is running at full load, consult power-company. Grounding/Bonding Install, ground, bond and wire motor according to local or National Electrical Code requirements. Permanently ground motor. Use ground terminal “G” provided under motor canopy or access plate; use size and type wire required by code. Connect motor ground terminal to electrical service ground. Connect a No. 8 AWG (8.4 sq.mm) solid copper bonding wire to the bonding lug provided on the motor housing and to all metal parts of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub and to all electrical equipment, metal piping or conduit within 5 ft. (1.5 m) of the inside walls of swimming pool, spa, or hot tub. Voltage Setting and Wiring : Be sure power is off. □ The motor is 115/230 Volt single phase and pre-wired at 230 volts. □ If the power source is 115 volts, remove the motor end cover □ Flip the switch to 115 Volt. □ Re-install the motor end cover. Pump must be permanently connected to circuit. Table I gives correct wire and circuit breaker sizes for the pump alone. If other lights or appliances are also on the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads to pump amp load before figuring wire and circuit breaker sizes. ( If unsure how to do this or if this is confusing, consult a licensed electrician.) Use the load circuit breaker as the master on-off switch. Install a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) in circuit; it will sense a short circuit to ground and disconnect power before it becomes dangerous to pool users. For size of GFCI required and test procedures, see GFCI manufacturer’s instruction. In case of power outage, check GFCI for tripping (which will prevent normal pump operation). Reset if necessary. : If you do not use conduit when wiring motor, be sure to seal wire opening on end of motor to prevent dirt, bugs, etc., from entering.

Before removing trap cover: : NEVER run pump dry. Running pump dry may damage seals, causing leakage and flooding. Fill pump with water before starting motor. 1. Stop pump before proceeding. 2. Close gate valves in suction and discharge pipes. 3. Release all pressure from pump and piping system. 4. If pump is being pressure tested, be sure pressure has been released before removing trap cover. : Risk of fire and burns. Motors run at high temperatures. To reduce the risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the motor, let it cool for 20 minutes before trying to work on it. An automatic internal cut off switch protects the motor from heat damage during operation. Priming Pump Release all pressure from filter, pump, and piping system; see the filter owner’s manual. In a flooded suction system (water source higher than pump), pump will prime itself when suction and discharge valves are opened. If pump is not in a flooded suction system, unscrew and remove trap cover; fill trap and pump with water. Do not lubricate the trap cover O-ring. The original equipment O-ring contains a permanent internal lubricant. : If you replace the O-ring with a non-internally lubricated O-ring, you may need to apply a silicone based lubricant. Clean and inspect O-ring; reinstall on trap cover. Replace trap cover on trap; turn clockwise to tighten cover. : Tighten trap cover by hand only (no wrenches)! Pump should prime now. Priming time will depend on vertical length of suction lift and horizontal length of suction piping. If pump does not prime within three minutes, make sure that all valves are open, suction pipe end is under water, pump is not trying to lift water more than 10 ft. (3 m), and that there are no leaks in suction pipe. If necessary, see Troubleshooting. Storage/Winterizing: : Allowing pump to freeze will damage pump and void warranty! : Do not use anti-freeze solutions (except propylene glycol) in your pool/spa system. Propylene glycol, or “RV antifreeze”, is non-toxic and will not damage plastic system components; other anti-freeze formulas are highly toxic and may damage plastic components in the system. Drain all water from pump and piping when expecting freezing temperatures or when storing pump for a long time (see Draining Pump). Keep motor dry and covered during storage. To avoid condensation/corrosion problems, do not cover pump with plastic. For outdoor/unprotected installations: 1. Enclose entire system in a weather proof enclosure. 2. To avoid condensation/corrosion damage, allow ventilation; do not wrap system in plastic. 3. Use a 40% propylene glycol/60% water solution to protect pump to -50° F (-46° C). 10 For Professional Technical Support call 1-844-241-5521 Draining Pump : Risk of electric shock. Can shock, burn or kill. Disconnect power before working on pump or motor. 1. Pump down water level below all inlets to the pool. : Risk of electric shock. Can shock, burn or kill. To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard, turn OFF power to motor before draining pump. 2. Remove trap cover and use low pressure air to blow accumulated water from the piping system. Never use high pressure air to purge system. 3. Cap inlet piping after draining to keep water out of the pipes. 4. To prevent pump from freezing, remove trap cover and drain the tank body through the two drain plugs provided. Clean pump thoroughly; replace trap cover. : Tighten trap cover by hand only (no wrenches)! If pump is not anchored, use caution to avoid breaking attached piping! 5.
