air is out of system before operating or testing equipment.
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.
• Water pressure for test must be less than 25 PSI
(7.5 kg/cm
).
2
• Water Temperature for test must be less than 100
o
(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, see Figure 1.

IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
Always follow basic safety precautions with this
equipment, including the following.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not per-
mit children to use this product unless they are closely
supervised at all times.
This pump is for use with permanently
installed pools and may also be used with hot tubs and
spas if so marked. Do not use with storable pools. A
permanently installed pool is constructed in or on the
ground or in a building such that it cannot be readily
disassembled for storage. A storable pool is con-
structed so that it may be readily disassembled for stor-
age and reassembled to its original integrity.
