Section 6. User Maintenance Instructions
The following information describe how to care for your AquaPure.
Chlorine Test. Test pool water chlorine level with a reliable test kit. Maintain ideal range by adjusting
the AquaPure chlorine production rate using Section 5.4, Startup. Recommended Free Chlorine is
NOTE It is recommended that chlorine test samples be taken from two places, one at the pool return line, the other
well away from the pool return line. Compare the samples. A higher level should be found at the pool return
line. The higher level at the pool return line indicates the AquaPure is producing chlorine.
pH Level Test. Test the pH level of your pool with a test kit. If necessary, adjust according to your
pool professional's recommendations. NSPI standard of 7.2 - 7.8 is recommended.
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.
Salt Level Test. Test pool water salt level by depressing the
located on the front cover of the AquaPure power center. Maintain the ideal range of 3.0-3.5 gpl for
optimum performance of the AquaPure. If additional salt is required, follow the procedures and charts
described in Section 4. If salt level does not rise after 24 hours, see Section 7, Troubleshooting.
Pool Water Sample. Take water sample to local pool store for testing.
Total Alkalinity Test. Test pool water for total alkalinity with a test kit. Adjust according to your pool
professional's recommendations. 80-120 PPM NSPI Standard.
Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid). Test pool water stabilizer (cyanuric acid) level using a test kit or by having
a water sample tested by a pool professional. Maintain ideal range of 50-75 PPM. Follow your pool
Calcium Hardness. Test pool water for calcium hardness level using test kit or by having a water
sample tested by a pool professional. If necessary, adjust according to your pool professional's
recommendations. NSPI standard of 150-400 PPM is recommended.
Metals Test. It is recommended that the pool water be tested periodically for the presence of metals
such as copper, iron, and manganese. These metals should not be present in the pool water. If those
metals are present, contact the local pool professional.
6.4 Electrolytic Cell Cleaning - As Needed
Automatic Cleaning. The power center has an automatic cell cleaning feature (Cell Reversing) that
removes scale deposits from the electrolytic cell.
NOTE Automatic Cleaning does not interrupt Chlorine Production.
