IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Always follow basic safety precautions with this equipment, including the following.

To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this product unless they are closely supervised at all times.

This pump is for use with permanently installed pools and may also be used with hot tubs and spas if so marked. Do not use with storable pools. A permanently installed pool is constructed in or on the ground or in a building such that it cannot be readily disassembled for storage. A storable pool is constructed so that it may be readily disassembled for storage and reassembled to its original integrity.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

READ AND FOLLOW ALL

INSTRUCTIONS!

This is the safety alert symbol. When you see this symbol on your system or in this manual, look for one of the following signal words and be alert

to the potential for personal injury.

warns about hazards that will cause death, serious personal injury, or major property damage if ignored.

warns about hazards that can cause death, serious personal injury, or major property damage if ignored.

warns about hazards that will or can cause minor personal injury or property damage if ignored.

NOTICE indicates special instructions not related to hazards.

Carefully read and follow all safety instructions in this manual and on equipment. Keep safety labels in good condition; replace if missing or damaged.

Incorrectly installed or tested equipment may fail, causing

severe injury or property damage.

Read and follow instructions in owner's manual when installing and operating equipment. Have a trained pool professional per-

form all pressure tests.

1.Do not connect system to a high pressure or city water system.

2.Use equipment only in a pool or spa installation.

3.Trapped air in system can cause explosion. BE SURE all air is out of system before operating or testing equipment.

Before pressure testing, make the following safety checks:

Check all clamps, bolts, lids, and system accessories before testing.

Release all air in system before testing.

Tighten Sta-Rite trap lids to 30 ft. lbs. (4.1 kg-cm) torque for testing.

Water pressure for test must be less than 25 PSI (172 kPa).

Water Temperature for test must be less than 100o F. (38o C).

Limit test to 24 hours. After test, visually check system to be sure it is ready for operation. Remove trap lid and retighten hand tight only.

NOTICE: These parameters apply to Sta-Rite equipment only. For non-Sta-Rite equipment, consult manufacturer.

INSTALLATION

Installation and wiring of pump should only be done by qualified, licensed personnel.

Pump mount must:

Be Solid - Level - Rigid - Vibration free. (To reduce vibration and pipe stress, bolt pump to mount.)

Be installed with pump suction inlet below water level at all times (this allows pump to prime).

Be installed with pump discharge below water level at all times (to avoid trapped air in discharge line).

Allow discharge line to be level or slope slightly up to heater, spa, or pool. Have adequate drainage to prevent flooding.

Be protected from excess moisture.

Allow adequate access for servicing pump and piping.

Ventilation:

Provide adequate ventilation to prevent motor overheating.

For continuous running, motor hot air exhaust must be able to escape motor compartment.

Piping:

Use flexible or rigid PVC pipe for connections to pump. Suction/discharge piping gate valves will allow removal for servicing. Use at least 1-1/2" IPS pipe.

Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings. Pump will not prime if suction pipe leaks.

Unions are provided. Use as follows for leak-free connections to pump:

1.‘O’ Ring and sealing surfaces must be clean.

2.Assemble handtight only! (NO WRENCHES!)

3.NO pipe compound or Teflon tape on unions.

4.Bond pipe to unions with PVC cement.

Use PVC cement only in a well ventilated area away from flame; FOLLOW MANUFACTURER‘S INSTRUCTIONS!

Spa Fittings:

Size and number of jets will have a major effect on jet action.

Typical installations use up to four 7/8" or 3/4" diameter jets or up to seven 1/2" diameter jets.

Spa fittings must meet International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards. Use only non-entrapping suction fitting or double suction.

ELECTRICAL

Ground motor before connecting to electrical power supply! Failure to ground pump motor 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 motor before working on electrical connections.

GFCI tripping indicates an electrical problem. If GFCI trips and will not reset, have a qualified electrician inspect and repair electrical system.

Exactly match supply voltage to nameplate voltage (115 Volt or 230 Volt single phase only)! Incorrect voltage can cause fire or seriously damage motor and voids warranty!

Grounding:

Install, ground, and wire motor according to local or National Electrical Code requirements.

Permanently ground motor; use size and type wire required by code. Ground connection must be made to green grounding terminal under motor canopy or access plate (see Figure 1B).

Connect motor ground terminal to electrical service ground.

Install and bond pump according to local codes and ordinances; use bonding lug on motor (see Figure 1A). Use solid copper conductor No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2) or larger.

Wiring:

Pump must be permanently connected to circuit. Table I, Page 6, gives correct wire and circuit breaker sizes for the pump alone. If other lights or appliances are also on the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads to pump amp load before figuring wire and circuit breaker sizes. (If unsure how to do this or if this is confusing, consult a licensed electrician.) Use the load circuit breaker as the master on-off switch.

Install a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) in circuit; it will sense a shortcircuit to ground and disconnect power before it becomes dangerous to pool users. For size of GFCI required and test procedures for GFCI, see manufacturer’s instruction.

In case of power outage, check GFCI for tripping (which will prevent normal pump operation). Reset if necessary.

NOTICE: If you do not use conduit when wiring motor, be sure to seal wire opening on end of motor to prevent dirt, bugs, etc., from entering.
