® Introducing the ChemiGem What’s in the box? The image above shows the main parts of the ChemiGem D10 Water Management System (clockwise from top left): Mounting brackets; top and bottom Multi-electrode (probe) ® ChemiGem Power Supply and Mains Cable ...
The ChemiGem D10 can also be installed with dosing pumps (instead of valves) to feed the chlorine and acid into the pool. Dosing pump models can be useful in certain applications, such as where pool equipment is installed below the water level of the pool.
Initial pool balance ® Before you begin using the ChemiGem make sure your pool water is balanced as follows: Chlorine If it is a new installation, add enough chlorine (liquid or granular) to achieve a reading of 3ppm on an appropriate test kit. Stabiliser –...
Basic Requirements – the Pool Owner ® Your ChemiGem maintains pool water biological safety by controlling the pH and the ORP (sanitation level). It achieves this by dosing the necessary chemicals into the pool in a controlled manner. The chemical drums must be checked on a regular basis – empty drums will lead to poor balance and incorrect operation.
Installation Guide Installation varies slightly depending on whether you have a solenoid valve model ® ChemiGem or a dosing pump model. The different methods of installation are described below, and illustrated on page 9 (Solenoid valve model) and page 10 (dosing pump model).
Installing the Probe (into the Injection Manifold) The probe supplied for use with an Injection Manifold has a bayonet fitting. To install the probe, simply insert it into the injection manifold and twist to lock the bayonet fitting. Installing a Tapping Band ®...
Installing Solenoid Valves The solenoid valves should be fitted as close as possible to the injection manifold or tapping band. The Y-piece should already be close to the manifold. The valves must be attached to a vertical surface above the top of the chemical drums but no more than 750mm above the base of the drums.
The ChemiGem Front Panel ® ChemiGem Display ® The ChemiGem uses a four line LCD display to provide the user with information. Line 1 shows the current time and the mode of operation. In the example above, line 1, tells you that the time is 3:27pm and the ®...
® ChemiGem Operational Buttons ® Your ChemiGem has 5 buttons that allow you to control the various functions available via ® the ChemiGem Menu system. Each button is labelled with its primary function either on the button itself, or adjacent to it. Secondary functions are labelled within a curved white outline next to the relevant button.
ENT Button ® Use this button to enter the ChemiGem Menu system and to access the various options in each Menu. Use the Y/UP and N/DOWN buttons to scroll through menu options and when your desired menu option is displayed on the LCD, press ENT to access that option. Y/UP Button and Optional Pool Light ®...
Advanced Settings Menu ® If you are interested in learning more about additional functionality of your ChemiGem detailed Advanced Settings Manual is available to download from the Pool Controls website - www.poolcontrols.com.au or call Pool Controls Service on 1300 550 010 for further information.
Timer Menu Setting the time ® Once you have installed your ChemiGem and turned it on, you will need to set the correct time on the ChemiGem’s 24 hour clock. First, access the Menu System by pressing the ENT button. The LCD will display the word TIMER MENU.
Running Times We recommend your system be operated for at least 4 hours per day and always run the system when using the pool. ® As sunlight destroys chlorine, it is recommended that the ChemiGem be run mostly in the evening.

After a few seconds, the LCD will read “ADD 5ppm of CHLOR”. You can increase the superchlorination dose to 10ppm by pressing the Y/UP button until the desired value is displayed. Press ENT to confirm your selection. The ChemiGem will then use the data entered in the POOL menu to calculate how much chlorine is needed and proceed to add it.
Note: Turning off the supply of acid is not normally necessary and could lead to unbalanced pool water that is unsafe to swim in. Pool Controls recommends that you seek advice from a qualified professional prior to disabling the pH system – or call Pool Controls Service on 1300 550 010.
ChemiGem Status Indicators, Warnings and Safety Features Normal Operation – Green Status Indicators When the ChemiGem is operating normally and ORP and pH readings are within the correct range, a green status indicator will be illuminated and the LCD will indicate the readings.
Low pH – (Excess Acid) If the pH of the water drops below the set point, a red status indicator will be illuminated and the words “LOW pH” will be displayed on the LCD. The ChemiGem will automatically prevent any further acid being added to the pool until the pH is brought back into the correct range by the addition of sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate.
Maintenance ® Like all equipment the ChemiGem will look better and last longer if it is maintained and operated in accordance with these instructions. ® The ChemiGem Power Supply The Power Supply has been design for operation in full sun and weather. However, it will benefit from being under cover.
