THE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS WILL HELP TO AVOID DANGERS, REDUCE REPAIR COSTS,

components are damaged, notify the carrier immediately.
Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious adverse health effects,
or even serious or fatal injury. Failure to follow the safety instructions will in all cases
invalidate all guarantees and liability on the part of the manufacturer.

Please follow instructions for filling up the pump according to installation and instruction
manual.
Section 2
Application
Only to be used to circulate swimming pool water.
Section 3
Installation
Install the pump as near to the pool as practical.
Use a direct and short suction line with continuous slope in order to avoid long priming times.
The pump should be placed on a flat, solid foundation, high enough to prevent flooding of the
motor.
Install the filter and pump in a sheltered location, ensuring ventilation and adequate access for
servicing.
Do not mount electrical controls directly over pump.
Provide adequate floor drainage to prevent flooding.
Size all piping adequately and keep the number of elbows to a minimum.
Independently support the pipe near the suction and discharge of the pump in order to reduce the
strain.
Avoid overtightening pipe connections. Use only pipe sealants formulated for plastics. Do not use
petroleum based products. It is essential that the suction line is free of air leaks. The suction line
should always be at least the same size as the suction inlet of the pump.
