Use 2.1 Advice on use • The cleaner must operate in pool water maintained at the following levels: Chlorine < 3 mg, pH between 6.8 and 7.6, temperature between 10°C and 35°C. • Use your cleaner as often as possible. You will benefit from a pool that is always clean and the filter will not become clogged. • If the pool is very dirty, especially during first use, remove larger pieces of debris using a net in order to optimise the cleaner's performance. • Remove thermometers, toys and other objects that might damage the cleaner from the water. • Immerse the cleaner in the pool, before starting a cleaning cycle. • Do not leave the cleaner in the water permanently. • Stow your cleaner on its caddy as soon as possible after use, in order to avoid distorting the flexible edge at the opening to the filter. • Never cover the control box while the cleaner is in operation • Do not leave the control box in direct sunlight after having used the cleaner. • If part of the pool is not properly cleaned, change the place where you immerse the cleaner until you find the best position of entry to achieve the best coverage. • The cleaner's behaviour is strongly influenced if the cable is tangled. Spread the cable out in the sun from time to time so that it resumes its original shape. • The behaviour of the cleaner can be influenced by the jet at the pool return outlets especially when the filter pump is operational. In this case we recommend that you start your cleaner when the filter pump is not operational. Do not use your cleaner during shock chlorination! 2.2 Immersing the robot • Submerge the cleaner in the pool and remove any air trapped inside by keeping the unit vertical (1). • Ensure the unit sinks to the bottom of the pool (2). • Spread out the floating cable over the pool, ensuring there are no kinks or coils in the cable (3). H03818-00.A3 EN – 2012-03 5 2.3 Electrical connection The cleaner control unit is water-resistant, not waterproof. In order to prevent electrocution, which could result in serious injury or death, never submerge the control unit. • Place the control box at a distance of at least 3.5 meters from the pool edge and away from direct sunlight; it can either be placed on the ground or attached to the caddy. • Connect the cleaner cable to the control box (1) and lock the connector by firmly tightening the ring by turning it clockwise (2). Make sure the connector is sufficiently pushed into place, if this is not the case repeat operation. • Connect the power cable. Only connect the control box to a power outlet protected by a 30 mA maximum ground fault circuit breaker (if in doubt contact a qualified electrician). Ensure that the plug is permanently and easily accessible. If you use an extension cable to connect your cleaner to the power supply, ensure the control box is placed no less than 3.5 meters from the pool edge. 2.4 Operation Program I: Maximised cleaning of the pool floor in minimum time.

H03818-00.A3 EN – 2012-03 6 EN Approximately 15 minutes after the cycle is completed, the light located on the control unit will flash slowly to indicate that the cleaner may be removed from the pool. The 15 minute period allows the motor to cool and will prevent damage to the cleaner. • Remove the cleaner from the pool after the cleaning cycle is completed and store on the caddy. • Never lift the cleaner out of the pool by the floating cable. Always use the handle to remove it from the pool. • Remove the cleaner from pool when super chlorinating. • Do not handle cleaner while it is in operation. 3. Maintenance 3.1 Cleaning the filter bag • Use your cleaner as often as needed to keep your pool clean. • Clean the filter canister after each cleaning cycle. • Do not leave your cleaner in the pool on a permanent basis. • At the end of each cycle, remove the cleaner from the pool. Start at the cleaner head and untangle any coils in the hose before storing the cleaner. • To avoid electric shock and other hazards which could result in permanent injury or death, disconnect (unplug) the cleaner from the control unit before performing any cleaning and maintenance. • The filter canister should be cleaned at the end of each cycle. • Ensure that the control unit cable has been disconnected from the electrical outlet or that the floating cable has been disconnected from the control unit. • Remove the cleaner from the water and let the remaining water drain by maintaining the cleaner in the vertical position. • Set the unit on its wheels. • Push the cover lock (1) and lift the cover (2) until it is secured in the vertical position (Figure 1). • Remove the filter assembly from the body (3) (Figure 2). • Push the quick release button on the canister assembly (4) and pull open the filter assembly (5) (Figure 3). • Separate the filter canister from the filter support (6) (Figure 4). • Wash the filter canister, the filter support, and the cleaner under water or using a hose (7) (Figure 5). H03818-00.A3 EN – 2012-03 7 3.2 Cleaning and Storing the Cleaner The cleaner must be cleaned regularly using slightly soapy clean water, do not use solvents such a trichloroethylene or its equivalent. Rinse the cleaner generously using clean water. Do not let your cleaner dry in direct sunlight near the pool. The cleaner must be stored on its own caddy, so that it dries quickly. • Place the rear wheels on the caddy side wedges (1). • Roll the unit into place onto the caddy (2). EN The cleaner cable must be disconnected from the control unit before removing the cleaner from the pool. Wrap the cleaner cable around the hooks located at the rear of the caddy. 4. Replacing the Brushes The cleaner is fitted with PVC brushes. There are ''wear'' indicators on the brushes. To maintain cleaner performance at its best you need to replace the brushes as soon as one of the wear indicators has been reached (even if the blade wear is not even). It recommended to replace the brushes every two (2) years. • Lift the cleaner to a vertical position so that the handle is up (1). • Separate the edges of the brush and undo the tabs (2). Remove the worn brushes. • To install a new brush, position the new brush on the roller with the spikes facing downwards (3). • Thread each tab into the slot provided and gently feed it through until the heel comes out at the other side of the slot (4). • Use a pair of scissors to cut the tabs 20mm from the heel so that they are no higher than the spikes (5). • Repeat this procedure to install the second brush.
