NOTE
Indicates special instructions not related to hazards.
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be followed, include the following:
Do not permit children to use this product.
RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Connect only to
a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuitinterrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that
the circuit is protected by a GFCI.
This unit must be connected only to a supply circuit
that is protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and should
be tested on a routine basis. To test the GFCI, push the test button.
The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button. Power should
be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the GFCI is
defective. If the GFCI interrupts power to the pump without the test button
being pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the possibility of an
electric shock. Do not use this pump. Disconnect the pump and have the
problem corrected by a qualified service representative before using.
This pump is for use with permanent swimming
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 is capable of being readily disassembled for storage and reassembled
to its original integrity.
F
Carefully read and follow all safety instructions in this manual and on
equipment. Keep safety labels in good condition; replace if missing
or damaged.
General Warnings
• Never open the inside of the drive motor enclosure. There is a
capacitor bank that holds a 230 VAC charge even when there is no
power to the unit.
• The pump is not submersible.
• The pump is capable of high flow rates; use caution when installing
and programming to limit pumps performance potential with old or
questionable equipment.
• Code requirements for electrical connection differ from country to
country, state to state, as well as local municipalities. Install equipment
in accordance with the National Electrical Code and all applicable
local codes and ordinances.
• Before servicing the pump; switch OFF power to the pump by
disconnecting the main circuit to the pump.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) of
reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience
and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND
WARNINGS CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS BODILY
INJURY OR DEATH. THIS PUMP SHOULD BE INSTALLED AND
SERVICED ONLY BY A QUALIFIED POOL SERVICE PROFESSIONAL.
INSTALLERS, POOL OPERATORS AND OWNERS MUST READ THESE
WARNINGS AND ALL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE OWNER’S MANUAL
BEFORE USING THIS PUMP. THESE WARNINGS AND THE OWNER’S
MANUAL MUST BE LEFT WITH THE POOL OWNER.
SUCTION ENTRAPMENT HAZARD: STAY OFF
THE MAIN DRAIN AND AWAY FROM ALL SUCTION
OUTLETS!
THIS PUMP PRODUCES HIGH LEVELS OF SUCTION AND CREATES
A STRONG VACUUM AT THE MAIN DRAIN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE
BODY OF WATER. THIS SUCTION IS SO STRONG THAT IT CAN TRAP
ADULTS OR CHILDREN UNDER WATER IF THEY COME IN CLOSE
PROXIMITY TO A DRAIN OR A LOOSE OR BROKEN DRAIN COVER
OR GRATE.
THE USE OF UNAPPROVED COVERS OR ALLOWING USE OF
THE POOL OR SPA WHEN COVERS ARE MISSING, CRACKED OR
BROKEN CAN RESULT IN BODY OR LIMB ENTRAPMENT, HAIR
ENTANGLEMENT, BODY ENTRAPMENT, EVISCERATION AND/OR
DEATH.
The suction at a drain or outlet can cause:
Limb Entrapment: When a limb is sucked or inserted into an opening
resulting in a mechanical bind or swelling. This hazard is present when
a drain cover is missing, broken, loose, cracked or not properly secured.
Hair Entanglement: When the hair tangles or knots in the drain cover,
trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the flow
rating of the cover is too small for the pump or pumps.
Body Entrapment: When a portion of the body is held against the drain
cover trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the
drain cover is missing, broken or the cover flow rating is not high enough
for the pump or pumps.
Evisceration/Disembowelment: When a person sits on an open pool
(particularly a child wading pool) or spa outlet and suction is applied directly
to the intestines, causing severe intestinal damage. This hazard is present
when the drain cover is missing, loose, cracked, or not properly secured.
INTELLIFLO® Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
iii
IMPORTANT PUMP WARNING AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Mechanical Entrapment: When jewelry, swimsuit, hair decorations,
finger, toe or knuckle is caught in an opening of an outlet or drain cover.
This hazard is present when the drain cover is missing, broken, loose,
cracked, or not properly secured.
NOTE: ALL SUCTION PLUMBING MUST BE INSTALLED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE LATEST NATIONAL AND LOCAL CODES,
STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES.
TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF INJURY DUE TO
SUCTION ENTRAPMENT HAZARD:
• A properly installed and secured ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 approved
anti-entrapment suction cover must be used for each drain.
• Each suction cover must be installed at least three (3’) feet apart,
as measured from the nearest point to nearest point.
• Regularly inspect all covers for cracks, damage and advanced
weathering.
• If a cover becomes loose, cracked, damaged, broken or is missing,
replace with an appropriate certified cover.
• Replace drain covers as necessary. Drain covers deteriorate over
time due to exposure to sunlight and weather.
• Avoid getting hair, limbs or body in close proximity to any suction
cover, pool drain or outlet.
• Disable suction outlets or reconfigure into return inlets.
A clearly labeled emergency shut-off switch for the
pump must be in an easily accessible, obvious place.
Make sure users know where it is and how to use it in case of emergency.
The Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act creates
new requirements for owners and operators of commercial swimming
pools and spas.
Commercial pools or spas constructed on or after December 19, 2008,
shall utilize:
(A) A multiple main drain system without isolation capability with suction
outlet covers that meet ASME/ANSI A112.19.8a Suction Fittings for
Use in Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, and Hot Tubs and either:
(i) A safety vacuum release system (SVRS) meeting ASME/ANSI
A112.19.17 Manufactured Safety Vacuum Release systems (SVRS)
for Residential and Commercial Swimming Pool, Spa, Hot Tub,
and Wading Pool Suction Systems and/or ASTM F2387 Standard
Specification for Manufactured Safety Vacuum Release Systems
(SVRS) for Swimming pools, Spas and Hot Tubs or
(ii) A properly designed and tested suction-limiting vent system or
(iii) An automatic pump shut-off system.
Commercial pools and spas constructed prior to December 19, 2008,
with a single submerged suction outlet shall use a suction outlet cover
that meets ASME/ANSI A112.19.8a and either:
(A) A SVRS meeting ASME/ANSI A112.19.17 and/or ASTM F2387, or
(B) A properly designed and tested suction-limiting vent system, or
(C) An automatic pump shut-off system, or
(D) Disabled submerged outlets, or
(E) Suction outlets shall be reconfigured into return inlets.
For Installation of Electrical Controls at Equipment Pad (ON/OFF
Switches, Timers and Automation Load Center)
Install all electrical controls at equipment pad, such as
on/off switches, timers, and control systems, etc. to
allow the operation (startup, shut-down, or servicing)
of any pump or filter so the user does not place any
portion of his/her body over or near the pump strainer
lid, filter lid or valve closures. This installation should
allow the user enough space to stand clear of the
filter and pump during system start-up, shut down or
servicing of the system filter.
INTELLIFLO Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
®
HAZARDOUS PRESSURE: STAND CLEAR OF
PUMP AND FILTER DURING START UP
Circulation systems operate under high pressure.
When any part of the circulating system (i.e.
locking ring, pump, filter, valves, etc.) is serviced,
air can enter the system and become pressurized.
Pressurized air can cause the pump housing cover, filter lid, and valves
to violently separate which can result in severe personal injury or death.
Filter tank lid and strainer cover must be properly secured to prevent
violent separation. Stand clear of all circulation system equipment when
turning on or starting up pump.
Before servicing equipment, make note of the filter pressure. Be sure
that all controls are set to ensure the system cannot inadvertently start
during service. Turn off all power to the pump. IMPORTANT: Place filter
manual air relief valve in the open position and wait for all pressure
in the system to be relieved.
Before starting the system, fully open the manual air relief valve and place
all system valves in the “open” position to allow water to flow freely from the
tank and back to the tank. Stand clear of all equipment and start the pump.
IMPORTANT: Do not close filter manual air relief valve until all
pressure has been discharged from the valve and a steady stream
of water appears. Observe filter pressure gauge and be sure it is not
higher than the pre-service condition.
General Installation Information
• All work must be performed by a qualified service professional, and
must conform to all national, state, and local codes.
• Install to provide drainage of compartment for electrical components.
• These instructions contain information for a variety of pump models
and therefore some instructions may not apply to a specific model. All
models are intended for use in swimming pool applications. The pump
will function correctly only if it is properly sized to the specific application
and properly installed.
Pumps improperly sized or installed or used in
applications other than for which the pump was
intended can result in severe personal injury or death. These risks may
include but not be limited to electric shock, fire, flooding, suction
entrapment or severe injury or property damage caused by a structural
failure of the pump or other system component.
The pump can produce high levels of suction within
the suction side of the plumbing system. These high
levels of suction can pose a risk if a person comes within the close
proximity of the suction openings. A person can be seriously injured by
this high level of vacuum or may become trapped and drown. It is
absolutely critical that the suction plumbing be installed in accordance
with the latest national and local codes for swimming pools.

INSTALLATION
Only a qualified plumbing professional should install the IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump. Refer to “Pump
Warning And Safety Instructions” on pages ii - iii for additional installation and safety information.
Location
REAR CLEARANCE
3 IN. (7.6 CM) MINIMUM
Be sure the pump location meets the following
requirements:
Note: Do not install this pump within an outer enclosure
or beneath the skirt of a hot tub or spa unless marked
accordingly.
3 IN.
(7.6 CM)
MINIMUM
1. Install the pump as close to the pool or spa as possible.
To reduce friction loss and improve efficiency, use
short, direct suction piping returns.
Pump Rear Clearance
2. Install a minimum of 5 feet (1.52 meters) from the
inside wall of the pool and spa. Canadian installations
require a minimum of 9.8 feet (3 meters) from pool
water level.
5 x SUCTION PIPE DIAMETER
3. Install the pump a minimum of 3 feet (.9 meters) from
the heater outlet.
4. Do not install the pump more than 10 feet (3 meters)
above the water level.
5. Install the pump in a well ventilated location protected
from excessive moisture (i.e., rain gutter downspouts,
sprinklers, etc.)
6. Install the pump with a rear clearance of at least 3
inches (76.2 mm) so that the motor can be removed
easily for maintenance and repair.
Piping
1. For improved pool plumbing, it is recommended to
use a larger pipe size. When installing the inlet and
outlet fittings (male adaptors), use thread sealant.
2. Piping on the suction side of the pump should be the
same or larger than the return line diameter.
3. Plumbing on the suction side of the pump should be
as short as possible.
4. For most installations Pentair recommends installing
a valve on both the pump suction and return lines
so that the pump can be isolated during routine
maintenance. However, we also recommend that a
valve, elbow or tee installed in the suction line should
be no closer to the front of the pump than five (5)
times the suction line diameter.
Example: A 2 inch pipe requires a 10 inch (25.4
cm) straight run in front of the suction inlet of the
pump. This will help the pump prime faster and last
longer.
Note: DO NOT install 90° elbows directly into the
pump inlet or outlet.
ELBOW
Recommended Piping
Fittings and Valves
1. Do not install 90° elbows directly into pump inlet.
2. Flooded suction systems should have gate valves
installed on suction and discharge pipes for
maintenance, however, the suction gate valve should
be no closer than five times the suction pipe diameter
as described in this section.
3. Use a check valve in the discharge line when using
this pump for any application where there is significant
height to the plumbing after the pump.
4. Be sure to install check valves when plumbing in
parallel with another pump. This helps prevent reverse
rotation of the impeller and motor.

or 115 VAC). If they do not match, permanent motor
damage may occur.
3. For wiring sizes and general guidelines for proper
electrical installation, please follow the specifications
defined in the National Electric Code and any local
codes as required.
4. Use strain relief and be sure all electrical connections
are clean and tight.
5. Cut the wires to the appropriate length so they do
not overlap or touch when connected.
6. Permanently ground the motor using the green ground
wire, as shown below. Use the correct wire size and
type specified by National Electrical Code. Make sure
the ground wire is connected to an electrical service
ground.
Ground Wire
Connection
7. Bond the motor to the structure in accordance with
the National Electrical Code. Use a solid copper
bonding conductor not smaller than 8 AWG. Run a
wire from the external bonding screw or lug to the
bonding structure.
8. Connect the wire from the accessible bonding lug on
the motor to all metal parts of the swimming pool, spa,
or hot tub structure and to all electrical equipment,
metal conduit, and metal piping within 5 feet (1.52
meters) of the inside walls of the swimming pool,
spa, or hot tub. For Canada, a 6 AWG or larger solid
copper bonding conductor is required.
9. The pump should be permanently connected to either
a circuit breaker, 2-pole timer or 2-pole relay. If AC
power is supplied by a GFCI circuit breaker, use a
dedicated circuit breaker that has no other electrical
load electrical loads.
10.IMPORTANT: When connecting the pump to an
automation system (IntelliTouch®, EasyTouch®,
SunTouch ® Control Systems and IntelliComm ®
Communication Center), continuous power must be
supplied to the pump by connecting it directly to the
circuit breaker. When using an automation system,
be sure that no other lights or appliances are on the
same circuit.
Note: When the pump is started and stopped by
removing power with a relay or timer, a two-pole
device should be used to apply and remove power
to both POWER LINE TERMINALS.

2. Close all gate valves in suction and discharge pipes. Relieve all pressure from the system.
3. Remove the pump lid and locking ring.
Top View
4. Fill the pump strainer pot with water.
5. Reassemble the pump lid and locking ring onto the strainer basket. The pump is now ready to prime.
6. Open the filter air relief valve and stand clear of the filter.
7. Connect power to the pump. Be sure green power light is on.
8.Press Start/Stop to start the pump. The pump will enter into priming mode (if enabled) and speed up to the maximum speed set in the pump menu
settings.
9. When water comes out of the filter air relief valve, close the valve. The system should now be free of air and recirculating water to and from the pool.
10. Do not allow your pump to run longer than
30 minutes time without developing full flow. If the
pump does not prime, check your priming settings
on the control panel or see the “Troubleshooting”
section on pages 24-25.
Priming Features
The default priming setting is ENABLED.
The pump also allows you to set the following from
the operator control panel:
•
•
•
•
Maximum priming time
Maximum and Minimum speed
Priming sensitivity (1-100%)
Priming delay
Set up instructions on page 14.
Do not add chemicals to the system directly in
front of pump suction. Adding undiluted chemicals
may damage the pump and will void the warranty.
This is a variable speed pump. Typically the
lower speeds are used for filtration and heating.
The higher speeds can be used for spa jets,
water features, and priming.
DO NOT run the pump dry. If the pump is run dry, the mechanical seal will be damaged and the pump will start leaking.
If this occurs, the damaged seal must be replaced. ALWAYS maintain proper water level in your pool (half way up
skimmer opening). If the water level falls below the skimmer opening, the pump will draw air through the skimmer,
losing the prime and causing the pump to run dry, resulting in a damaged seal. Continued operation in this manner
could cause a loss of pressure, resulting in damage to the pump case, impeller and seal and may cause property and
personal injury.

PRIMED SENSITIVITY
PRIMING DELAY
Default: 1%
Priming sensitivity can be set from 1 - 100%. 1% means the pump is the most
sensitive to sensing if pump has attained prime. Increasing % will decrease amount of
flow needed for pump to sense prime.
Increase the % if the pump clearly has water in the basket but is having trouble coming
out of priming mode. Setting this number too high can cause the pump to think it has
attained a prime when it has not.
Default: 20 seconds
Priming delay can be set from 1 second to 10 minutes.
If the pump does not have enough water after the automatic priming mode, the pump will
ramp to the Maximum Speed (under “Pump Settings” on page 9) and run for 20 seconds
(or for the time set).
You may need to increase the priming delay to allow the system to stabilize before the
pump starts running speeds. If pump continues to show a priming error, increasing the
priming delay time might correct this issue.

Connecting to EasyTouch® and
IntelliTouch® Control Systems
The pump can be controlled by an EasyTouch or
IntelliTouch system via the RS-485 communication
cable. The EasyTouch and/or IntelliTouch control
system starts, stops and controls the speed of the pump.
EasyTouch and/or IntelliTouch systems rewrite the
pump memory when a command is given. This can take
several seconds and can cause a delay until the pump
physically responds.
The pump control panel is disabled when
communicating with an EasyTouch and/or IntelliTouch
system. The EasyTouch and/or IntelliTouch system
will not start communicating with the pump until
the pump is assigned to a circuit. The default pump
address is “1” (only address for EasyTouch system).

MAINTENANCE
DO NOT open the strainer pot if IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump fails to prime or if pump has been operating without water in the
strainer pot. Pumps operated in these circumstances may experience a build up of vapor pressure and may contain scalding hot
water. Opening the pump may cause serious personal injury. In order to avoid the possibility of personal injury, make sure the suction
and discharge valves are open and strainer pot temperature is cool to touch, then open with extreme caution.
To prevent damage to the pump and for proper operation of the system, clean pump strainer and skimmer baskets regularly.
Pump Strainer Basket
Winterizing
The strainer basket (or ‘strainer pot’), is located in front of
the pump housing. The strainer basket must be kept clean
and free of debris. Inspect basket through the lid on the
top of the housing. Be sure to visually inspect the strainer
basket at least once a week. Dirty strainer baskets reduce
filter and heater efficiency and put abnormal stress on
the pump motor.
To protect the pump electronics from freeze damage,
the pump will switch on to generate internal heat as the
temperature drops below freezing. The Anti Freeze
feature on the pump is not intended to protect the
system plumbing from freezing.
• In mild climate areas, when temporary freezing
conditions may occur, run your filtering equipment
all night to prevent freezing.
• You are responsible for determining when freezing
conditions may occur. If freezing conditions are
expected, take the following steps to reduce the risk
of freeze damage. Freeze damage is not covered
under warranty.
To prevent freeze damage, follow the procedures below:
1. Shut off electrical power for the pump at the circuit
breaker.
2. Drain the water out of the pump housing by removing
the two thumb-twist drain plugs from the housing.
Store the plugs in the pump basket.
3. Cover the motor to protect it from severe rain, snow
and ice.
Cleaning the Pump Strainer Basket
1.Press Start/Stop button on the pump and turn
off the pump at the circuit breaker. Disconnect
communication cable from pump.
2. Relieve pressure in the system.
3. Turn the lid and clamp counter-clockwise and remove
from the pump.
4. Remove debris and rinse out the basket. Replace
the basket if it is cracked.
5. Put the basket back into the housing. Be sure to align
the notch in the bottom of the basket with the rib in
the bottom of the volute.
6. Fill the pump pot and volute up to the inlet port with
water.
7. Clean the lid and clamp, O-ring, and sealing surface
of the pump pot.
Note: It is important to keep the lid O-ring clean and
well lubricated.
8. Reinstall the lid by placing the clamp and lid on the
pot. Be sure the lid O-ring is properly placed.
Seat the clamp and lid on the pump then turn clockwise
until the locking ring handles are horizontal.
9. Turn the power “ON” at the circuit breaker. Reconnect
communication cable from pump.
10. Open the manual air relief valve on the top of the
filter. Stand clear of the filter.
11. Wait until all pressure is relieved. Start the pump.
12. Bleed air from the filter until a steady stream of
water comes out of the filter air relief valve. Close
the manual air relief valve.
Note: Do not wrap motor with plastic or other air tight
materials during winter storage. The motor may be
covered during a storm, winter storage, etc., but never
when operating or expecting operation.
THIS SYSTEM OPERATES UNDER HIGH PRESSURE.
When any part of the circulating system (e.g., Lock Ring,
Pump, Filter, Valves, etc.) is serviced, air can enter the
system and become pressurized. Pressurized air can
cause the lid to separate which can result in serious
injury, death, or property damage.
To avoid this potential hazard, follow above instructions.

SERVICING
Always disconnect power to the IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump at the circuit breaker and disconnect the communication cable
before servicing the pump. Failure to do so could result in death or serious injury to service people, users or others due to electric
shock. Read all servicing instructions before working on the pump.
DO NOT open the strainer pot if pump fails to prime or if pump has been operating without water in the strainer pot. Pumps operated
in these circumstances may experience a build up of vapor pressure and may contain scalding hot water. Opening the pump may
cause serious personal injury. In order to avoid the possibility of personal injury, make sure the suction and discharge valves are
open and strainer pot temperature is cool to touch, then open with extreme caution.
Be sure not to scratch or mar the polished shaft seal faces; seal will leak if faces are damaged. The polished and lapped faces of
the seal could be damaged if not handled with care.
Motor Care

5. Clean the lid and clamp, O-ring, and sealing surface
of the pump pot.
Protect against moisture
1. Protect from continuous splashing or continuous
sprayed water.
2. Protect from extreme weather such as flooding.
3. If motor internals have become wet - let it dry before
operating. Do not allow the pump to operate if it has
been flooded.
4. If a motor has been damaged by water it may void
the motor warranty.
Shaft Seal Replacement
The Shaft Seal consists primarily of two parts, a rotating
ceramic seal housed in the impeller and a stationary
spring seal in the sealplate. The pump requires little or
no service other than reasonable care, however, a shaft
seal may occasionally become damaged and must be
replaced.
Note: The polished and lapped faces of the seal could
be damaged if not handled with care.
To remove and repair the motor subassembly, follow the
steps below:
1. Turn off the pump circuit breaker at the main panel.
2. Disconnect the RS-485 communication cable from
the pump (if connected to pump).

FIRE and BURN HAZARD - The pump motor
may run at a high temperatures. To reduce the
risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect
around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the motor, shut
off the motor and allow it to cool for 20 minutes before servicing. The
pump provides an automatic internal cutoff switch to protect the motor
from heat damage during operation.
Alerts and Warnings
The IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump displays all alarms
and warnings on the control panel display. When an alarm
or warning condition exists, the corresponding light will
be lit on the display.
All control panel buttons are disabled until the alarm or
warning is acknowledged with the Enter button. Press the
Reset button to clear the alarm once the fault condition
has been resolved.
Note: The pump will not start if the impeller is rotating.
Power Out Failure
The incoming supply voltage is less than 170 VAC.
The drive faults to protect itself from over current. The
drive contains capacitors that keep it powered up long
enough to save the current run parameters. If power is
restored during this process, approximately 20
seconds, the drive will not restart until completed.
Priming Error
If the pump is not defined as primed within the “Max
Priming Time” it will stop and generate a “Priming
Alarm” for 10 minutes, then attempt to prime again. The
“Max Priming Time” is set by the user on the priming
menu as discussed on page 13. If the pump cannot
prime within five attempts it will generate a permanent
alarm that must be manually reset.
Overheat Alert
If the drive temperature gets above 54.4° C (130° F)
the pump will slowly reduce speed until the over
temperature condition clears.
Anti-Freezing
When active, the motor will run at the preset RPM until
the drive temperature increases above the minimum.
The pump’s internal antifreeze protection is disabled
when connected to an automation system. Freeze
protection is provided by selecting YES at the ON WITH
FREEZE portion of the circuit function menu in the
IntelliTouch® control system. To re-enable the internal
antifreeze protection, the power to the drive must be
cycled off then back on. Important: See explanation
of Anti-Freeze mode on page 16.
Over Current
Indicated that the drive is overloaded or the motor has
an electrical problem. The drive will restart 20 seconds
after the over current condition clears.
Over Voltage
Indicates excessive supply voltage or an external
water source is causing the pump and motor to rotate
thereby generating an excessive voltage on the drives
internal DC buss. The drive will restart 20 seconds
after the over voltage condition clears.

Check suction piping and valve glands on any suction
gate valves. Secure lid on pump strainer pot and be
sure lid gasket is in place. Check water level to be
sure skimmer is not drawing air.
Be sure the suction lines, pump, strainer, and pump
volute are full of water.
Pump does not come out of prime.
Adjust prime sensitivity to a higher setting (default
setting is 1%).
Pump stainer gasket is clogged.
Clean pump strainer pot.
Pump strainer gasket is defective.
Replace gasket.
Air pockets or leaks in suction line.
PRIME ERROR may be displayed.
Check suction piping and valve glands on any
suction gate valves.

on page 23).
Turn off electrical power to the pump.
Remove the (6) bolts that holds the housing (strainer
pot/volute) to seal plate. Slide the motor and seal
plate away from the volute.
Clean debris from impeller. If debris cannot be
removed, complete the following steps:
1. Remove diffuser and o-ring.
2. Remove left hand thread anti-spin bolt and o-ring.
3. Remove, clean and reinstall impeller.
4. Reinstall anti-spin bolt and o-ring.
Reinstall diffuser, and o-ring.

Air in system.
Bleed air from filter. Be sure air bubbles are not
visible coming into pump pot.
Suction lift above design limits.
Insert vacuum gauge into pump port connection port.
Confirm vacuum level is 25 in. mercury (hg) or less.
Blocked suction / Blocked discharge
Stop pump and clear blockage.
System flow too high. System changing flow too
quickly. In floor cleaning system issues.
Reduce system flow. Change speed. Reduce water
flow. In floor cleaning systems must be designed with
balanced hydraulic losses on all legs.
Priming not enabled.
Enable priming from the “PRIMING” menu.
Issues related to other equipment, such as
Heat Pumps and Heaters with internal valves
that vibrate.
