  • Page 6 Page 6 WARNING Prolonged immersion in hot water may induce hyperthermia. Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6°F (37°C). The symptoms of hyperthermia include dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, lethargy, and an increase in the internal temperature of the body.
  • Page 7 Page 7 CAUTION It is important to note that certain materials used in and around swimming pools and spas may not be compatible with chemicals commonly used to purify pool and spa water (e.g. acids, chlorine, salt, stabilizers, etc.). As such, Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. does not warrant or guarantee that the chlorinated water generated by the salt water chlorinator will not damage or destroy certain types of plants, decking, coping and other materials in and around your pool and/or spa.
  • Page 8: Section 2. System Description

    2.1 Product Description The AquaPure and PureLink systems use a process known as electrolysis to produce sodium hypochlorite (liquid chlorine) from a low concentration of salt added to the pool water. Hypochlorite kills bacteria, oxidizes organic material, and kills algae then reverts back to salt.

    Page 13 WARNING When using electrical products, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following: • RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK WHICH CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Before attempting installation or service, ensure that all power to the device is disconnected/turned off at the circuit breaker. • Grounding is required. The unit should be installed by a qualified service representative and should be properly grounded. (See Section 3.4, Earth Grounding). • Install to permit access for servicing.
  • Page 14: Recommended Plumbing Configuration

    The preferred installation is that the cell and sensor are plumbed in the common line after (downstream) the heater. The sensor is designed to be plumbed into the 3-port cell. Figure 4 illustrates the recommended plumbing configuration, which results in the most reliable operation. NOTE The AquaPure® and PureLink systems are powered from the LOAD SIDE of the pool circulation pump relay. This ensures that the cell only operates when the pool pump is ON. The flow sensor serves as a secondary protection device to ensure there is sufficient flow for the cell to operate.

  • Page 28: Chemistry You Need To Know

    Page 28 Chemistry You Need to Know Chlorine Stabilizer (cyanuric acid) is needed to maintain proper levels of chlorine. Most unstable chlorine is destroyed by the UV radiation from the sun within 2 hours. Chlorine stabilizer should be maintained between 50 - 75 PPM. With high water temperatures above 30°C, stabilizer (cyanuric acid) must be kept at levels from 75 - 85 PPM. Nitrates can cause extremely high chlorine demands and will deplete chlorine from your swimming pool.
  • Page 29: Optimum Pool Water Conditions

    4.5 Optimum Pool Water Conditions In accordance with Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) standards, we recommend the following water balance conditions be maintained on an on-going basis to protect the pool finish and equipment and ensure the pleasing appearance of the water. The AquaPure is warranted to operate properly ® only if these conditions are met.

    Page 30 4.7 Salt (NaCl sodium chloride) 4.7.1 When to Add Salt? For a new concrete pool or newly resurfaced pool it is recommended to wait 30 days (surface should be completely cured) before adding salt. Follow the pool surface manufacturer’s guidelines for your particular pool. For vinyl and fiberglass pools, salt can be added at start up. After start up add salt as necessary to maintain proper levels.

  • Page 36: Startup

    Page 36 5.4 Startup 5.4.1 Shocking Shock (superoxidation) (see Section 4.4, 6. Shocking) the pool water from an outside source at the time of pool startup to burn off contaminates. During normal operating conditions the chlorinator is capable of generating a sufficient level of chlorine for sanitation within several hours. However, if the pool water has a high chlorine demand due to startup conditions then the chlorinator will not be able to produce enough chlorine to reach break-point chlorination.
  • Page 37: Recommendations

    Page 37 5.6 Recommendations DO List • Read and keep your manual in a safe place. • Increase chlorine production rate before a large number of bathers enter the pool and return to normal afterwards. • Increase chlorine production rate when temperature goes up. • Increase chlorine production rate when the number of bathers goes up. • Use stabilizer (cyanuric acid) to stabilize chlorine in pool. • Mount power center in shade or out of the direct sunlight whenever possible. • Decrease production rate when temperature goes down (for example, in the Fall and Winter seasons). • Take pool water sample to pool professional once per month. DON’T List • Do not get fertilizer in your pool. Fertilizers contain nitrates which cause a high chlorine demand on pool water. • Never use dry acid to adjust pH in arid geographic areas with excessive evaporation and minimal dilution of pool water with fresh water. A build up of by products can damage the electrolytic cell. • Do not add chemicals or salt to the pool unless the chlorinator is turned off.
  • Page 38: Section 6. User Maintenance Instructions

    Page 38 Section 6. User Maintenance Instructions The following information describes how to care for your sanitizing system. Important: Always test the chlorine levels of your pool before each use. 6.1 Daily Chlorine Test. Test pool water chlorine level with a reliable test kit. Maintain ideal range by adjusting the chlorine production rate using Section 5.4, Startup.
  • Page 39: Flow/Temp/Salinity Sensor Cleaning

    Page 39 WARNING Always turn pump off prior to installing or removing any components from the pool’s plumbing. Your pump/filter system is operated under pressure and pressure must be released before you begin to avoid system damage or personal injury. Open the air relief valve on your pool filter to release the pressure in the system. Acid Wash Cleaning. If the electrolytic cell has a tendency to scale, it is recommended that every two (2) months the cell be removed and inspected for scale formation and/or debris. Some filters allow debris to pass through to the cell which could lodge between the plates in the cell.

    Page 40 2. Brush with a mildly abrasive green fiber household cleaning pad. Contacts should be clean and bright. Thoroughly rinse the flow/temp/salinity sensor with clean tap water. Replace and resume normal operation. Turn power off and back on in order to recalibrate and reset Flow/Temp/Salinity Sensor. Reset anytime Flow/Temp/Salinity Sensor is unplugged. 6.5 Winterizing Very little chlorine is needed in cold water. Below 51°F (11°C), chlorine production is not permitted; operating the chlorinator in cold water might result in over-chlorinated pool water.
