General Remarks/Requirements on site
1. General Remarks/Requirements on site
1.1 Specific Use and Purpose
Built-in whirlpools with the appropriate equipment and accessories are warm
water bubble pools, that are designed for private and family use and are installed
in fitness centers, hotels and large bathing areas. Outdoor installation is possible
provided special precautions are taken regarding winterizing.
Private whirlpools contain about 700 – 1500 liters of water and are therefore
too large to be filled and emptied with warm water each time a person bathes
in the whirlpool. These whirlpools are like a swimming pool and need to be
equipped with a filtration and heating system that maintains the proper disinfection and temperature of the water at all times.
The water needs to be changed about every 2 months. At that time the pool
should be cleaned manually. Only clean tap water from the public supply should
be used to refill the pool. The water quality should be like drinking water.
Private whirlpools emit humidity and sound. Therefore, a steam barrier, a
humidifier and dehumidifier, and a whirlpool cover need to be installed, and,
if necessary, special measures need to be taken to absorb the noise.
The maximum water temperature in the whirlpool can not be higher than
40° C. The chloride level can not be higher than 300 mg/l.
If you want to install a private whirlpool in a situation that is different from the
one described above and as described in the installation and service instructions, we ask you to please contact us. There are different solutions available,
for instance when salt water is used. Inappropriate use voids the warranty.
1.2 Subsoil/Foundation
The foundation should be level and firm and have the same dimensions as the
whirlpool (see data sheet). The entire base of the whirlpool must stand completely flat on the ground so that its weight is properly supported. There must be
sufficient head room above the whirlpool for getting in and out with ease.
If the pool is dropped in the ground, the prepared recess clearance in the base
plate should be about 10 cm wider than the outside dimensions of the pool.
The piping and insulation are located beneath the pool edge.
The concrete base for the equipment pack needs to be at the same level as the
pool, so that the pumps are always filled with water. The distance between the
equipment and the pool should never be more than 5 meters.
1.3 Power supply
Total connected load: 400V, 16 Amp. The whirlpool must be connected to the main
power supply. The installation should be carried out by a qualified and licensed
electrician and in compliance with local regulations.
1.4 Fresh water
Only water of drinking water quality from the mains should be used.
1.5 Waste water
The whirlpool should be emptied into the public sewage system (see diagram
fort he proper connection).
1.6 Delivery
The whirlpool is delivered on a pallet. The whirlpool should be transported to
its destination completely packed, to avoid damage during transporation to
the installation site. Immediately upon arrival the pool should be unpacked
and inspected for any sign of damage.
1.7 Noise insulation
If the pool is installed next to bedrooms, for example, or any other rooms which
according to DIN 4109 require special noise insulation, additional measures
will have to be taken.

Installation- and Operating Instructions
Art.No.3030000030 (with solenoid valve)
Art.No.3030000020 (without solenoid valve)
Functioning:
The
collecting vessel control NR-12-TRS-2 is a technically high-quality product Which can only work
properly, if it is duly mounted and connected while observing the operating instructions. The
NR-12-TRS-2
is best suitable for the use in pool units with overflow. It is an integrated connection scheme consisting of:
•
electronic control unit
•
dipped electrodes (optionally)
•
solenoid valve (optionally)
The dipped electrodes which are operated at alternating voltage don’t cause the formation of electrolytes in the
2
water. The electrode lines can be prolonged up to 100m (min.1.5mm ) without the need of an adjustment of the
electronic system. The electronic switching process is specially designed for overflow collecting vessels. Due to a
special switching technique, a direct switching process is not triggered in case of wave motions and excessively
short switching distances are avoided.
The dipping electrodes are operated at a harmless safety extra-low voltage. The control unit itself is designed
according to the regulations of the VDE which are currently in force.

2.6 Installation and operation osf-collector tank control
Operating instructions No-12-TRS-2 Page: 2
Installation of the dipping electrodes:
The
dipping electrodes are provided with a water- and ozone-resistant special line in the standard version.
The tensile strength of the line is sufficient to hang the electrodes into the overflow collecting vessel by means of
this special line, while a touching contact of the individual electrodes may well be allowed. The line is fixed at the
top of the vessel. Depending on the corresponding conditions in place, the line is fixed by means of strain relief
clamps, cable clips, cable binders or similar construction elements. The special lines are brought together in a
2
branch box which is to be installed in place. Starting from this branch box, one line ( e.g. NYM-0 5x1.5 mm ) is
laid to the control unit.

Operating instructions No-12-TRS-2 Page: 3
Connection of the dipping electrodes:
During connection of the dipping electrodes, in particular one has to see to it that the consequential
order is not mixed up, for mixing-up of the electrodes unavoidably leads to malfunctions of the unit.
If the function "forced connection" is not applied, the corresponding dipping electrode (terminal 8) is
not necessary. The connection terminal 8 is not used in this case. It need not be bridged.
All other dipping electrodes are necessary for the functioning of the control system, they cannot be
dispensed with and shall not be bridged.
Functioning notes:
The
a)
collecting vessel control system NR-12-TRS-2 comprises the following functions:
Water level control.
If the water level decreases down to below the dipping electrode "solenoid valve OPEN"
(terminal 6) due to a loss of water in the pool, e.g. by evaporation or re-flushing, the solenoid
valve opens and the fresh water which is flowing in leads to an increase of the water level. As
soon as the water level reaches the position of the dipping electrode "solenoid valve SHUT"
(terminal 5) and touches the corresponding electrode, the solenoid valve closes the fresh water
feed.
b)
Dry-running protection of the filter pump.
If the water level decreases down to below the dipping electrode "Dry-running protection pump
OFF" (terminal 7) due to a loss of water in the collecting vessel, e.g. as a result of re-flushing,
the collecting vessel control systems switches off the filter pump preventing it from damage due
to a lack of water. As soon as the water level rises again up to the height of the electrode "Dryrunning protection pump ON" (terminal 6) and touches the electrode concerned, the
collecting vessel control system automatically re-connects the filter control.
c)
Forced connection.
If the water level increases in the collecting vessel and touches the dipping electrode "forced
connection ON" (terminal 8) due to water displacement in the pool, the
collecting vessel
filter control system) automatically
control system NR-12-TRS-2 (in connection with an
connects the filter pump. Now, water is pumped back into the pool and thus an unnecessary
loss of precious water is avoided. The dipping electrode "forced connection ON" (terminal 8) is
to be mounted a few centimetres beneath the overflow.
A currentless closed solenoid valve has to be used.
After completion of the mounting- and installation works, a complete performance test has to be
carried out.
We wish you much joy and recreation in your pool.

Noise reduction
3. Noise reduction
3.1 Installing noise insulation
precautions
Because of the way they are constructed, whirlpools produce a certain noise
that is transmitted via material or air. In order to keep noise transmission to
a minimum, we recommend installation according to the following instructions.
3.2 Installation without special noise
insulation precautions
Water
Expansion joints
Calcium sandstone or
multi-layered plaster
board
Insulating hollow spaces
Noise absorbing rubber
Expansion joints
Reinforced concrete
base
This recommendation is only sufficient if there are no rooms next to or below the installation room that
require noise insulation according to VDI 4100 / DIN 4109 regulation.
• The edge of the bath tub should not lay directly on the tub wall. Opportunities for noise transmission should be
avoided.
• Pipes that are installed through a wall should never be in direct contact with this wall (use noise absorbing sheathing).
• Install compensators in the pipe lines between the whirlpool and the aggregates.
• Assembly foam is acoustically not suitable (noise transmission).
• The hollow room under the tub should be protected with material that prevents noise from reverberating through
the air (should be at least 200mm thick).
• Install noise absorbing bearings underneath the feet of the tub.
12
Noise reduction
3. Noise reduction
3.3 Installation with special
noise precautions.
More stringent noise absorbing requirements occur when living areas are
situated below the whirlpool. The sound level in these rooms can not exceed
the 35 dbA limit prescribed by DIN 4109 (25 dbA in industrial spaces). This
noise level depends basically on the construction of the building and the
installation, and the way the installation has been assembled. Therefore, we
recommend individual, custom-made sound reducing planning on the basis
of the diagram below.
Water
Expansion joints
Calcium sandstone or
multi-layered plaster
board
Insulating hollow spaces
Noise absorbing rubber
Expansion joints
Reinforced concrete base /
steel base with noise
absorbing material
(e.g. with polymeric
concrete)
Elastomer bearing support
Insulating hollow spaces
Reinforced concrete base
This recommendation is only sufficient if there are no rooms next to or below the installation room that
require noise insulation according to VDI 4100 / DIN 4109 regulation.
• The edge of the bath tub should not lay directly on the tub wall. Opportunities for noise transmission should be
avoided.
• Pipes that are installed through a wall should never be in direct contact with this wall (use noise absorbing sheathing).
• Install compensators in the pipe lines between the whirlpool and the aggregates.
• Assembly foam is acoustically not suitable (noise transmission).
• The hollow room under the tub should be protected with material that prevents noise from reverberating through
the air (should be at least 300mm thick).
• Noise absorbing bearings underneath the feet of the tub and underneath the reinforced concrete base / steel
base; agreed-on frequency f0 = 10-12 Hz.
• Also required: elastic buffering of the reinforced concrete base (horizontal movement < 1 mm). Caution: Connections!

The Installation
4. Mounting the installation
4.1 Mounting the whirlpool
Place the whirlpool on a level concrete base, adjust and secure feet with lock
nuts
4.2 Mounting the Power Pak
The equipment pack should be installed in an equipment room that leaves
enough space to access the equipment comfortably from all sides. Sufficient
space and air should be present to cool the pumps and motors. The blower
needs to be supplied with ca. 200 m3 of fresh air. The maximum distance
between the pool and the equipment should never be more than 10 m. The
equipment pack should stand at the same floor level as the pool, in order for
the pumps to always be filled with water.
The blower should be connected to the pool about 30 cm above the water
surface via a waterproof hose coil.
4.3 Installing the pipelines
Please make sure that all pipelines can be drained completely. All drainage
valves indicated on the diagram must be installed. Do not create air or water
pockets .
Please note:
The channel drainage should be installed with a wide loop from the pool to
the collector tank. This way the water can flow along the inside wall of the
pipeline. This way the water willl cause less gurgling noise. Also, a bleeder
valve should be installed on site underneath the channel drain, so that drawn
in air can be released. The light comes with a 10m cable which should be
connected to the transformer.
14
4.4 Connecting the pneumatic
control cable
The PN-cables are connected to the Pak. The cables need to be drawn through
a protective hose to the pool and connected to the pneumatic button according to the diagram.
4.5 Installing and connecting
the mains cable
The Pak comes with a 1 m long connection cable. This needs to be removed
and replaced by a permanent connection on site. This connection needs to
be installed on site by a qualified and licensed electrician in compliance with
local regulations.
4.6 Forced start
When a massage pump or the blower is switched on, the filtration system
needs to be started as well in order to maintain the water level. After pump
1 of the blower stops running, the filtration system should continue to run for
another 5 minutes. A potential-free outlet is available for on site connection
of the filtration pump in the control box of the Power Pak.
Start-up and operation
5. Start-up and operation
5.1 Start up
- Close the water lines..
- Open the suction and pressure lines of the pumps.
- Fill the pool with water until the overflow channel.
- Fill half of the collector tank with water.
- Turn main switch to „ON“.
Operation pneumatic button at pool edge:
Button 1 press: Light on,
Press again: Light off
Button 2 press: Blower on,
Press again: Blower off
(After the air bubble blower has been switched on, it willl take a few seconds
before the air comes out, because the blower need to press the water out of
the pipes).
Button 3 press: Massage pump 1 on, Press again: off
Button 4 press: Massage pump 2 on, Press again: off
Please note: After the pumps are turned on for the first time, air is being
pressed out of the pipes. It is possible that it willl take a few minutes bevore
all jets operate continuously. The jets can be closed by turning the nozzle. It
is necessary to check if all jets are properly opened.
5.2 Reversing valve and
massage jets
By operating the reversing valve at the upper pool edge it can be regulated
which jets are working when the pumps run.
Middle Position: The water flows evenly through all jets . Leave the valve in this position when the whrilpool is not being used.
Left Position:
This is the massage position for jet line 1.
Right Position:
Massage position for jet line 2.
The reversing valve can be moved back and forward in between these positions,
in order to obtain an individual setting of the intensity of the massage. To do
this, the jet pump needs to be turned off, the valve needs to be turned, and then
the jet pump needs to be switched on again. In addition, the intensity of the
Superjets (and with some models the Hydrojets) can be adjusted by turning the
nozzle. While the massage pump is running, additional air can be added to the
jets through position
„Jet 1“ or „Jet 2“ . To do this, the air regulator at the upper edge of the pool needs
to be opened by turning the lever. The added air mix needs to be closed after the
pool has been used.
5.3 Automatic Ringsing Cycle
The massage pumps and the blower are switched on automatically after every
6 hours, so that the disinfected water can flow through the pipes. This rinsing
cycle lasts a few minutes. Please make sure that the filtration system operates at
these sames times, in order to maintain the water level of the pool. If necessary,
the time can be adjusted. In information sheet about the operation of the time
clock can be found in the control cabinet.

Instructions for bathing
6. Instructions for bathing
6.1
Water temperature
Water temperatures in whirlpools are significantly higher than those
for instance of swimming pools. This is so, because it is through the
combination of heat and the movement of the water that the desired feeling
of relaxation can be achieved. However, this may cause increased pressure
on the circulation. Therefore, in order to ensure safe bathing, always observe
the following rules and follow these instructions for water maintenance.
The water temperature should be set at approximately 36° C. Higher
temperatures can cause circulatory problems and lead to fatigue - lower
temperatures of, for example 32°-33° C have an invigorating and refreshing
effect. The ideal temperature will naturally depend on the constitution of
each individual.
6.2
Duration of baths
The higher the temperature of the water, the less time should be spent in
the water. If the water is 36° C the bathing time should be approximately 20
minutes, if the water is 38° C, no more than 10-12 minutes.
6.3
Taking a break
Each bath should be followed by a cool-down period of the same length of
time. This can be done either by going out into the fresh air or by taking a
swim in a cool pool.
6.4
Showering before bathing
Before entering the whirlpool, be sure to shower thoroughly. Otherwise the
high temperature of the water means that impurities in the water will have
to be treated with correspondingly high amounts of disinfectant.
6.5
