2. Disconnect all wires from the high-limit
switches except the short jumper wire.
3. Disconnect the pressure switch wiring.
4. Remove the temperature sensing bulb from the
inlet/outlet header. Note: If needed, you may cut
the wire ties holding them together.
5. Remove the 16 bolts holding the main inlet/
outlet head and return head in place, exchange
the heads, using the new tube seals supplied
with the heater, re-install the 16 bolts using
moderate torque.
6. Install the temperature sensing probe by passing
the wires through the hole provided on the left
side of the brace panel. Route wires through the
support bracket.

PLUMBING
VALVES
When any equipment is located below the surface of
the pool or spa, valves should be placed in the
circulation piping system to isolate the equipment
from the pool or spa.
Check valves are recommended to prevent back
siphon.
CAUTION
Exercise care when installing chemical feeders so
as to not allow back siphoning of chemical into the
heater, filters or pump.

PLUMBING CONNECTIONS
The MiniMax NT Low NOx heater has the unique
capability of direct schedule 40 PVC plumbing
connections. A set of bulkhead fittings is included with
the MiniMax NT Low NOx to insure conformity with
Pentair's recommended PVC plumbing procedure.
Other plumbing connections can be used.
CAUTION
Before operating the heater on a new installation,
turn on the circulation pump and bleed all the air
from the filter using the air relief valve on top of the
filter. Water should flow freely through the heater.
Do not operate the heater unless water in the pool/
spa is at the proper level.
MANUAL BY-PASS
Where the flow rate exceeds the maximum 120
GPM, a manual bypass should be installed and
adjusted. After adjustments are made, the valve
handle should be removed to avoid tampering.
