WARNING - Entrapment Prevention - continued DANGER: DO NOT BLOCK SUCTION SUCTION HAZARD. Can cause serious injury or death. Do not use this pump for wading pools, shallow pools, or spas containing bottom drains, unless pump is connected to at least two (2) functioning suction outlets. WARNING: Pump suction is hazardous and can trap and drown or disembowel bathers. Do not use or operate swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs if a suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose. The following guidelines provide information for pump installation that minimizes risk of injury to users of pools, spas, and hot tubs: Entrapment Protection: The pump suction system must provide protection against the hazards of suction entrapment. Suction Outlet Covers: All suction outlets must have correctly installed, screwfastened covers in place. All suction outlet (drain) covers must be maintained. Drain covers must be listed/certified to the latest published edition of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 (ANSI/APSP-16, 2011). They must be replaced if cracked, broken, or missing. Number of Suction Outlets Per Pump: Provide at least two (2) hydraulicallybalanced main drains, with covers, as suction for each circulating pump suction line. The centers of the main drains (suction outlets) on any one (1) suction line must be at least three (3) feet apart, center to center. The system must be built to include at least two (2) suction outlets (drains) connected to the pump whenever the pump is running. However, if two (2) main drains run into a single suction line, the single suction line may be equipped with a valve that will shut off both main drains from the pump. The system shall be constructed such that it shall not allow for separate or independent shutoff or isolation of each drain. More than one (1) pump can be connected to a single suction line as long as the requirements above are met. Water Velocity: The maximum water velocity through the suction fitting or cover for any suction outlet must be 1.5 feet per second, unless the outlet complies with the latest published edition of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 (ANSI/ APSP-16, 2011), the standard for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. In any case, do not exceed the suction if fitting’s maximum designed flow rate. If 100% of the pump’s flow comes from the main drain system, the maximum water velocity in the pump suction hydraulic system must be six (6) feet per second or less, even if one (1) main drain (suction outlet) is completely blocked. The flow through the remaining main drain(s) must comply with the latest published edition of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 (ANSI/APSP-16, 2011), the standard for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. Testing and Certification: Suction outlet covers must have been tested by a nationally recognized testing laboratory and found to comply with the latest published edition of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 (ANSI/APSP-16, 2011), the standard for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. Fittings: Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings (but at least two (2) suction outlets). Avoid fittings that could cause an air trap. Pool cleaner suction fittings must conform to applicable International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards. 5
WARNING - Risk of Electrical Shock or Electrocution This pool pump must be installed by a licensed or certified electrician or a qualified pool serviceman in accordance with the National Electrical Code and all applicable local codes and ordinances. Improper installation will create an electric hazard which could result in death or serious injury to pool users, installers, or others due to electrical shock, and may also cause damage to property. Always disconnect power to the pool pump at the circuit breaker before servicing the pump. Failure to do so could result in death or serious injury to serviceman, pool users, or others due to electric shock.

3 Installation Information Preparation Guide 1. Upon receipt of the pump, check the carton for damage. Open the carton and check the pump for concealed damage, such as cracks, dents, or a broken base. If damage is found, contact the shipper or distributor where the pump was purchased. 2. Inspect the contents of the carton and verify that all parts are included. See Section 7, Parts List and Exploded View for details.
Pump Location WARNING: This product must be installed and serviced by a qualified pool professional, and must conform to all national, state, and local codes. Before installing this product, read and follow all warning notices and instructions of this product. Failure to follow warning notices and instructions may result in property damage, personal injury, or death. ATTENTION INSTALLERS: This manual contains important information about the installation, operation, and safe use of this product. This manual should be given to the owner/operator of this equipment. 1. In order to achieve better priming, to install the pump as close to the pool as practical and run suction lines as direct as possible to reduce friction loss. 2. It is recommended that a minimum length of straight pipe, equivalent to five (5) times the pipe diameter be used between the pump suction inlet and any plumbing fittings (elbows, valves, etc.). 3. Install the pump on a level, solid foundation which provides a rigid and vibration-free base. Secure the pump to the base with screws or bolts to further reduce vibrations and stress on the plumbing. 7
Pump Location - continued 4. Protect the pump against flooding and excess moisture. Select an area that will not flood when it rains. DO NOT install the pump in a damp or non-ventilated location. 5. Keep the motor clean and provide free circulation of air for cooling. 6. Though the pump is designed for outdoor use, it is advised to protect the pump from continuous direct heat. Install the pump in a well ventilated location protected from excessive moisture (flooding, sprinklers, rain downspouts, etc.). 7. DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity of this pump. DO NOT store pool chemicals near the pump. 8. DO NOT remove any safety alert labels such as DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION. Keep safety labels in good condition and replace any missing or damaged labels. 9. Provide access for future services by leaving a clear area around the pump. Allow plenty of space above the pump to remove lid and basket for cleaning. WARNING: Some Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) devices are not compatible with the installation of check valves. If the pool has an SVRS device, be sure to confirm that it will continue to safely operate when the check valves are installed. NOTE: In Canada, the pump must be located a minimum of three (3) meters (approximately ten (10) feet) from the water (CSA C22.1).
Pipe Sizing NOTE: All pipe sizes are able to withstand the pressures the pump will deliver, but not necessarily the flow. If the pipe is too small for the pump, or is elevated above water, the maximum gallons per minute (GPM) may not be delivered. If this happens, the pump will develop a pocket of air (cavitation) that makes noise. This may shorten the life of the pump. SUCTION & DISCHARGE: When the pump is located up to fifty (50) feet from the pool, the recommended minimum pipe size for both the suction and discharge is 2”. For better efficiency and less restriction, use as few fittings (elbows, tees, valves, etc.) as possible. Suction line diameter must be equal or be greater than the discharge line diameter. Suction and discharge lines should be independently supported at a point near the pump to avoid strains being placed on the pump. NOTE: If more than ten (10) suction fittings are needed, the pipe size must be increased.
Plumbing Installation When installing the pump, care should be taken to see the suction line is below water level to a point immediately beneath and in front of the pump to ensure quick priming via a flooded suction line. The height between the pump and water level should not be more than five (5) feet. 8
Plumbing Installation - continued If the pump is located below water level, isolation valves must be installed on both sides of the pump to prevent the back flow of pool water during any routine or required servicing. The Badu EcoM3 V (1.65) comes equipped with unions on both the suction and discharge ports. This feature simplifies installation and service and eliminates the possibility of leaks at the threaded adaptors. Before starting the pump for the first time, remove the see-through lid. (Turn lid ring counter clockwise to remove.) Fill strainer tank with water until it is level with the suction inlet. Replace lid, making sure the o-ring is in place and not damaged. Hand-tighten the lid to make an air tight seal. Do not use any tools to tighten the lid: handtighten only. Every new installation must be pressure tested according to local codes. See the Pressure Testing Section on page 10.
Bonding and Grounding WARNING: Ground and bond the pump before connecting to electrical power supply. Failure to ground and bond the pump can cause serious or fatal electrical shock hazard. DO NOT ground to a gas supply line. To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to the pump before working on electrical connections. 1. The motor frame must be grounded to a reliable grounding point using a solid copper conductor, No. 8 AWG or larger. In Canada, No. 6 AWG or larger must be used. If the pump is installed within five (5) feet of the inside walls of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub, the motor frame must be bonded to all metal parts of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub structure and to all electrical equipment, metal conduit, and metal piping within five (5) feet of the inside walls of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub. 2. Bond the motor using the provided external lug. WARNING: In order to avoid the risk of property damage, severe personal injury, and/or death, make sure that the control switch, time clock, or control system is installed in an accessible location, so that in the event of an equipment failure or loose plumbing fitting, the equipment can be easily turned off. CAUTION: The pump must be permanently connected to a dedicated electrical circuit. No other equipment, lights, appliances, or outlets may be connected to the pump circuit, with the exception of devices that may be required to operate simultaneously with the pump, such as a chlorinating device or heater.

On Off 12345 NOTE: All Dip switches should be in the OFF position when external controllers are not being used.
Figure 3 CAUTION: Voltage at the pump MUST NOT vary by more than +/- 10% of nameplate voltage. Components may overheat, causing overload tripping and reduced component life. Consult your power company if this condition exists. NOTE: Use only liquid tight fittings to protect the electronics and motor.
Pressure Test WARNING: To minimize the 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. However, if the WARNING cannot be followed and pressure testing of the complete system must be done, follow the following guidelines: 1. RELEASE ALL AIR in the system before testing. 10
Pressure Test - continued 2. Water pressure for the test MUST NOT EXCEED 35 PSI. 3. Water temperature for the test must NOT EXCEED 100° F (38° C). 4. Limit the test to 24 hours. After the test, visually check the system to be sure it is ready for operation. DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR TO PRESSURE TEST OR CHECK FOR LEAKS.
4 Operation Start Up Guide CAUTION: Never run the pump without water. Running the pump “dry“ for any length of time can cause severe damage to both the pump and the motor and will void the warranty. If this is a new pool installation, make sure all piping is clear of construction debris and has been properly pressure tested. The filter should be checked for proper installation, verifying that all connections and clamps are secure according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. WARNING: To avoid risk of property damage, severe personal injury or death, verify that all power is turned OFF before starting this procedure. 1. Depending on the location of the pump, do one of the following: n
If the pump is located below the water level of the pool, open the filter pressure valve to prime the pump with water. Once all the air has left the filter, close the filter pressure release valve.
If the pump is located above the water level of the pool, remove the lid and fill the basket with water before starting the pump.
2. Prior to replacing the lid, check for debris around the lid o-ring seat. Debris around the lid o-ring seat will make it difficult to prime the pump. 3. Hand-tighten the lid to make an air tight seal. Do not use any tools to tighten the lid: hand-tighten only. Make sure all valves are open and the unions are tight. 4. Restore power to the system. 5. Pressing the START key will start the motor based on the factory default schedule (See Table 2.0). Table 2.0 - Factory Default Schedule Button
Start Up Guide - continued NOTE: Motor will always run the PRIMING sequence when starting from the OFF position, except when starting in OVERRIDE. The factory priming settings are 2600 RPM for 3 minutes. 6. (Self Priming Pump) Open the filter pressure relief valve until all air has escaped and then close. 7. If the pump does not prime and all instructions to this point have been followed, check for a suction leak. Repeat steps 2-7. 8. For technical assistance, call Technical Support at (800) 223-8538. NOTE: If power goes off to the motor and the user did not press the STOP key, then the motor will automatically start and run the programmed schedule. This will ensure that the motor will re-start in the case of a power outage.
Energy Savings Optimization The speed and duration can be programmed on site for each specific pool installation to support specific pool parameters and equipment. In order to maximize Energy Savings from pump operation, follow the steps below to optimize the pool pump speeds to take full advantage of these savings opportunities. 1. Push the OVERRIDE button directly from the pump control, adjust the pump speed to determine the proper operation rpm of the pump for each device intended for use on the pool (filter, vacuum, HPPH, gas pool heater, etc.). 2. Use the UP (+) or DOWN (-) buttons on the pump control to increase/decrease the pump speed while in the OVERRIDE mode (NOTE: The light over the OVERRIDE button will be lit when in OVERRIDE mode). 3. Record the lowest RPM that allows each pool device to work properly and save for future reference and use later in these instructions. 4. STEP 1 is primarily used to circulate the pump for a sufficient period each day to ensure proper turn over of the pool water and filtration. Adjust the pump speed and duration for STEP 1 as determined for proper operation of the filtration system (proper number of turns per day). 5. STEP 2 and STEP 3 can be used and set for other equipment operation. 6. Once all pump speeds have been determined, you can adjust the programs in the pump accordingly, See the Programming Section on page 13. NOTE: It is best to use a speed slightly above the minimum speed determined in the steps above to ensure proper operation under dirty filter or clogged strainer baskets, etc. Example, if the heater operation requires a setting of 1600 RPM – use 1850 RPM. This still maximizes pump energy cost savings, but also reduces the probability of nuisance issues with the pool equipment not operating properly because of insufficient water flow.
Programming The pump operates on a 24 hour cycle that begins from the time the START button is pushed. To start the cycle at a specific time, See the Schedule Advance Section on page 16.
Programming - continued Programmable Speed Settings: 3450, 3100, 2850, 2600, 2350, 2100, 1850, 1600, 1350, 1100, 850, 600, 0 NOTE: 0 is a programmable speed (RPM) and can be set for a specific duration. Programmable Duration Settings (Hours) 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0 NOTE: Up to three (3) separate speeds with duration may be set. The sum of the three (3) durations combined must not exceed 24 hours. If the three combined exceed 24 hours, the pump will keep the current step and rewrite the remaining two steps to zero. User can change the program duration and speed of STEP 1, STEP 2, STEP 3 & OVERRIDE keys. NOTE: Pump must be OFF for programming speed and duration of the STEP 1, 2, 3 keys. Override speed and duration can be programmed when the motor is either OFF or running. Four (4) programmable buttons lay across the top of the Keypad (See Figure 4 - shows the speed being set at 3100 RPM). The LED directly above each button when lit indicates it is in operation or active. To create a custom schedule and change the factory defaults settings, follow these steps: 1. Place the pump in the stop position (Press STOP Button). 2. Press the STEP 1 button. The LED above it will illuminate. The LED above the SPEED column will illuminate. 3. Using the UP (+) or DOWN (-) arrows, toggle to the desired speed. The Bar graph will show the setting as you toggle up and down (See Figure 4 - shows the speed being set at 3100 RPM). 4. Press the STEP 1 button again. The LED above the duration column will be lit. 5. Using the UP (+) or DOWN (-) arrows, toggle to the desired duration that you want this speed to run in hours. The Bar graph will show the setting as you toggle up and down (See Figure 5 - shows the duration being set at 10 hours). 6. Press any of the other STEP or the OVERRIDE button to save these settings for STEP 1. 7. To exit the system and not save these settings, press the STOP button. 8. Press STEP 2, STEP 3, or OVERRIDE key. Repeat steps 3-6 to program the corresponding speed and duration for each button.

NOTE: The START button must be pressed for the pump to operate. The START LED will illuminate after the button has been pressed. NOTE: If the schedule times combined are less than 24 hours, the remaining time for the 24 hour cycle will be filled with the motor stopped. 14
Menu Structure - continued Schedule Table Use these tables to enter a personalized operating schedule. By writing down the planned schedule, it will make the programming process easier and will help the user to remember the user’s settings in case the programming is inadvertently lost. The User Interface will not allow the user to program an overlap between different steps of the schedule. The STEP currently being set will always take priority of any older settings. Therefore, the duration for the other two (2) STEPs not currently being set will be cleared to 0 hours and have to be programmed again by the user. It is always a good idea to double check your programmed settings once you have completed the programming process. Setup #1 STEP 1
Speed (RPM) Duration (Hours)
Keypad Lock The Keypad has a “key lockout” feature to prevent unwanted changes to the settings. To lock the keys, hold down the STEP 1, 2, and 3 buttons all at the same time for more than 3 seconds. The “active step LEDs” for STEP 1, 2 and 3 will blink for 30 seconds indicating that the keypad is locked (See Figure 6). The user can unlock the keys by holding down the same buttons for more than 3 seconds. The “active step LEDs” for STEP 1, 2 and 3 will illuminate continuously indicating the keypad is unlocked.

The motor will turn off and the START and OVERRIDE LED’s will blink. Once every second indicating that the “motor pause” feature is enabled. 2. To resume running, hold the START button for three seconds.
Power Outage If there is a power outage and the user does not press the STOP key, upon power being restored, the pump will automatically start and run the schedule starting with STEP 1. This feature ensures that the motor will re-start in the event of a power outage. The Priming sequence precedes STEP 1. All programming is retained. 15
Schedule Advance The Schedule Advance Feature allows you to program the pump yet start the 24 hour cycle at a different time of day. The following steps should be followed to set the Schedule Advance: 1. With the motor stopped, press the START Key and hold for more than three seconds. The Start LED will blink. The Duration LED and Bar Graph will illuminate. 2. Press the UP (+) or DOWN (-) arrows to set the desired schedule cycle start time. The schedule advance mode will automatically start after the desired delay time is selected. This mode can be cancelled by pressing the STOP key. Note: During the Schedule Advance if a user presses the STEP 1, STEP 2, STEP 3, OVERRIDE, or the START key, the system will start the normal schedule and the Schedule Advance will be cancelled. NOTE: If power is lost during the Schedule Advance, then the 24 hour schedule will automatically start when power is restored.
Using an Existing or New 24 hour timer to start the pump controller program The Badu EcoM3 V (1.65) operates on a 24 hour cycle. Once the controller is programmed, it only requires the START button to be pressed to start the 24 hour cycle. Once the START button is pressed, power cycled (such as a temporary power failure) to the pump would result in the 24 hour cycle restarting at the beginning of STEP 1. Using or adding a “24 hour timer” will allow you to start the “24 hour cycle” at any time during the day. Note: The pump must be programmed and the Start Key pressed in order to operate.
Optional Controller This optional controller uses the RS485 connectors (See Table 3.0). Note: Verify that Dip switch 1 is ON and Dip switch 5 is OFF. Note: The +12V and GND can also be used to supply 12V for the Digital Inputs when Dip switch 1 is ON. The benefits of the optional remote controller: 1. Ability to view fault-codes and troubleshoot. 2. Ability to set a pump running schedule based on a real-time clock setting. 3. Ability to remotely mount. 4. Ability to configure Prime Speed and Prime Duration. 5. Ability to configure Freeze Protection temperature. 6. Ability to view speed and power of the motor in real-time. 7. Ability to adjust motor speed in 25 RPM increments. 8. Battery backup to keep stored settings and time. 16
Freeze Protection Freeze Protection will run the motor at 2600 RPM for eight (8) hours if the ambient temperature drops below 39° F. Once this eight (8) hour duration has elapsed, the motor control will check the ambient temperature again. If the temperature is still below the 39° F threshold, the motor will run for an additional eight (8) hours. If the temperature is above the threshold, the motor will automatically return to the 24 hour based schedule. NOTE: The freeze protection function will NOT operate if the START button is not pressed. This can be confirmed by verifying that the START LED is illuminated.
Override The pump is equipped with an OVERRIDE feature, which can be engaged to temporarily run at higher or lower speeds between 600 to 3450 RPM. Once override duration has elapsed, the motor will automatically return to programmed schedule. 1. Pressing the OVERRIDE key; while the motor is running; will cause the motor to start running in the OVERRIDE mode at the programmed Speed and Duration. The “active step LED” for OVERRIDE will illuminate. The speed and duration settings LED along with its respective bar graph LED of OVERRIDE shall blink back and forth at three (3) seconds. 2. The UP (+) / DOWN (-) arrows allow the user to configure Speed and Duration. These settings can be changed while the motor is running. These settings are stored each time the UP (+) / DOWN (-) arrows are pressed. NOTE: When the OVERRIDE duration ends, the motor resumes the 24 hour duration cycle and will start in the corresponding STEP. The OVERRIDE duration will not affect the start or stop times of the 24 hour cycle. NOTE: Pressing/Holding OVERRIDE key for more than three (3) seconds will cancel OVERRIDE mode. NOTE: During the OVERRIDE mode, the motor will not start with the priming sequence. NOTE: Pressing STOP at any time turns the motor OFF and clears the start time for the 24 hour schedule.
Communication Control with Digital Inputs The user can run the motor at the programmed STEP 1, 2, 3, or OVERRIDE speeds by utilizing the four (4) digital inputs. STEP 1, 2, 3, or OVERRIDE are equivalent to Digital Input 1, 2, 3, or 4 respectively. The controller is rated to accept digital inputs of 18V-30V AC (24V AC+/- 20%) and 9-30V DC (12/24 V DC +/20%). NOTE: The motor will detect either a 50/60Hz for AC input or an active low signal for DC digital inputs. The items below describe the functionality of the digital inputs: (See Figure 7) 1. If the user provides any one of the 4 digital inputs, then the DURATION LED will blink every one (1) second to indicate the Digital Input is functioning properly. 2. The motor will illuminate the corresponding “active step LED” and the respective bar graph LED. The START LED will be OFF when a digital input is present. NOTE: There is no schedule for digital inputs. The timing for each speed is controlled directly by the digital inputs. 17
Communication - continued NOTE: The digital inputs have the highest priority amongst all the inputs (i.e. Keypad, Serial and Digital Inputs). Therefore, the serial commands as well as the Overlay Keypad inputs will be ignored when a digital input is present. NOTE: If more than one digital input (switch) is present, then the motor will give priority to the highest number digital input. Therefore, OVERRIDE has highest priority followed by STEP 3, then STEP 2, then STEP 1. NOTE: If no digital input is detected, the motor will automatically start the 24 hour schedule if the START key was pressed prior to the application of the digital input. NOTE: If using external devices it is the users responsibility to verify appropriate power and speed conditions. Refer to the proper external device manual.

Heat Pump Pool Heater Connections (Wiring) The Badu EcoM3V (1.65) can be connected directly to a single phase or 3-phase Raypak, Rheem, Ruud, Weatherking, and Perfecttemp Heat Pump Pool Heater (HPPH) without the need for any external sequencer or control. The HPPHs will provide an OVERRIDE signal to the pump whenever there is a Call for Heat at the HPPH if wired as shown in these instructions (See Figures 12, 13, and 14). The pump will continue to operate at this OVERRIDE speed until the HPPH thermostat has been satisfied. NOTE: For heaters other than those listed, please consult the heater manufacturer for direct wiring compatibility with the Badu EcoM3 V (1.65)
Digital HPPH Wiring Connections: Field wiring to Digital HPPH products will be accomplished by connecting directly to the HPPH control board as shown below in Figure 13. A ¼” spade connection is required to connect to the HPPH control board at the terminals marked “PUMP” as noted below. Use 18 AWG insulated stranded wire for these connections.

Heat Pump Pool Heater Connections (Wiring) - continued Wiring Connections to the the Badu EcoM3 V (1.65) Pump Connect the 18AWG wires from the HPPH to the Badu EcoM3 V (1.65) pump as show and described below. It does not matter which wire is connected to the IO-4 terminal or the IGND terminal for these 24 VAC connections. While the 24 VAC connections are polarity sensitive, the digital inputs on the VSP pump are floating and look for a differential voltage from IO-4 to IGND. Therefore, the wiring does not matter for an AC input signal, but will matter for a DC input signal. However, connections to the Analog and Digital HPPH are 24 VAC signals and so this is not an issue. The factory default speed setting for this OVERRIDE signal is 3450 RPM. This is to ensure sufficient water flow to ensure proper operation of the HPPH. If optimization of this pump speed is desired as an energy savings measure (Refer to the Energy Savings Operation - Pump Speed Optimization Section page 12).

5 Service and Maintenance Routine Maintenance This pump requires little or no service other than reasonable care and periodic cleaning of the strainer basket. 1. Inspect the pump basket for debris by looking through the clear pump lid. 2. Turn OFF the power to the pump. If the pump is located below the water level, close isolation valves on the suction and discharge sides of the pump to prevent back flow of water. 3. Remove any debris, because as the debris accumulates, it will begin to block the flow of water through the pump. Keep the basket clean and clear to improve the performance of the pump. 4. Turn the lid’s lock ring counter clockwise until it stops. Carefully remove the lid and lock ring. 5. Remove the basket and properly dispose of the debris into the trash and rinse out the basket. Check basket for cracks, if crack is found replace basket. 6. Replace basket back into the pump, align the basket properly with the suction pipe. Then fill with water up to the suction pipe. Clean clear cover, lid o-ring and sealing surface of the pump of any debris. 7. Replace lid with locking ring. Hand-tighten the lid to make an air-tight seal. Do not use any tools to tighten the lid. 25
Routine Maintenance - continued 8. Verify that all valves have been returned to the proper position for normal operation. Turn on the power to the pump.
Winterizing CAUTION: The pump must be protected when freezing temperatures are expected. Allowing the pump to freeze will cause severe damage and void the warranty. There are two options when winterizing the pump Option 1: 1. Drain all the water from the pump, system equipment, and piping. 2. Remove drain plugs. Do not replace plugs. Store the plugs in the empty strainer basket for winter. 3. Keep the motor covered and dry. Option 2: 1. Drain all the water from the pump, system equipment, and piping. 2. Remove the pump and motor from the plumbing and store indoors in a warm and dry location. Note: When the winter season is over the pump will need to be primed prior to start (Refer to Section 4 Operation, Start Up Guide). CAUTION: DO NOT run the pump dry. If the pump is run dry, the mechanical seal will be damaged and the pump will start to leak at the seal. If this occurs, the mechanical seal will need to be replaced. ALWAYS maintain the proper water level in your pool. Continued operation in this manner could cause a loss of pressure, resulting in damage to the pump casing, impeller, and mechanical seal (voiding warranty).
6 Troubleshooting Fault LED WARNING: The pump must be serviced by a professional service technician qualified in pool/spa installation. The following procedures must be followed exactly. Improper installation and/or operation can create dangerous electrical hazards, which can cause high voltage to run through the electrical system. This can cause property damage, serious personal injury, and/or death. Improper installation and/or operation will void the warranty. The fault LED will be solidly on if there is a fault in the controller portion of the electronics. This can include over temperature, over current, over/under voltage, or an open phase of the motor. The fault LED will blink if a fault has been detected in the user interface. The motor reads the fault status every seven seconds. The motor will stop and remain off when a fault is present. Once the fault is cleared, if the motor was previously running, it will automatically resume running the normal schedule. During the fault condition, the Bar graph LEDs will turn off. However, the power LED and active STEP LED will remain illuminated. When a fault is present, only the STOP key will function. Once the fault is cleared, the fault LED will turn off automatically.
