Changing Default Low Speed
The default low speed can be selected to operate at the medium speed. Please
follow all local/state regulations regarding pool motor and timer speed settings.
Step 1: Turn the motor on. Please ensure that the motor is mated to a pump as
well as having the pump primed. For a multi-speed timer, please ensure that the
HIGH speed is being commanded.
Step 2: After allowing the motor to come to full speed, press and hold the high
and medium buttons simultaneously for five seconds. This button selection
should be completed within the first two minutes of operation.
The low speed LED will blink for three seconds, followed by 15 blinks of the
medium speed LED. The low speed LED blinks for three seconds to identify that
the motor is ready for a modification of the default speed, whereas the 15 blinks of
the medium speed LED indicates that the default speed has successfully changed
to medium speed.
For a single speed timer, the motor will then return to high speed for the duration
of the initial two hour high speed operational period, converting the changed
default speed after the two hour period.
For a multi-speed timer, the motor will then return to the high speed. The
medium speed will then be the second speed selection.
Note: To revert back to low speed default, simply repeat steps 1-4.
