Important Safety Warning
Do not connect system to an unregulated city water system or other external source of pressurized
personal injury, or property damage. Be sure all air is out of system before operating
or testing the equipment.
MAXIMUM OPERATING PRESSURE OF THE FILTER IS 50 PSI. NEVER SUBJECT THE FILTER
TO ANY OPERATING PRESSURE EXCEEDING 50 PSI.
This filter operates under high pressure. When any part of the circulating system, i.e., filter, pump,
valve(s), clamp, etc. is serviced, air can enter the system and become pressurized when the system
is restarted. Pressurized air can cause the filter lid to be blown off which can result in death, serious
personal injury or property damage. To avoid this potential hazard, follow all of the instructions in this
To minimize risk of severe injury or death the filter and/or pump should not be subjected to the piping
system pressurization test.
Local codes may require the pool piping system to be subjected to a pressure test. These
requirements are generally not intended to apply to the pool equipment such as filters or pumps.
Jandy pool equipment is pressure tested at the factory.
If however this WARNING cannot be followed and pressure testing of the piping system must include
the filter and/or pump BE SURE TO COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:
installed and secured before testing.
RELEASE ALL AIR in the system before testing.
Notice: These parameters apply to Jandy equipment only. For non-Jandy equipment, consult equipment manufacturer.

any other service of the circulating system; (A) turn the pump off and shut off any automatic controls to ensure
the system is not inadvertently started during servicing; (B) open the air release valve; (C) wait until all pressure
Once service on the circulation system is complete, follow Section 4 of this manual, "Start-up and Operation".
Maintain circulation system properly. Replace worn or damaged parts immediately.
Do not pressure test above 35 PSI. Pressure testing must be done by a trained pool professional.
Cartridge Pool Filters - CL and CV Series Filters
follow Section 3.4 of this manual, "Clamp Installation".
