INSTALLATION
Please pay careful attention to the following warnings signs and indications.
Only qualified, licensed personnel should install
pump. The electrical installation shall be in
accordance with the national wiring rules (AS/NZS
3000) for class 1, IP44 rated products.
These instructions are a guide only. Users not
familiar with pumping equipment should seek
advice from people experienced in pump equipment
and installation.
Freezing conditions will damage the unit, because
when water freezes it expands. Ensure that the
pump is located so that it is not prone to freezing,
or ensure that the product is disconnected and
dried of water during cold conditions.
The pump is electrically connected. Ensure that it
is isolated from electrical supply during installation
and any subsequent service work.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance
by a person responsible for their safety
The pump is designed to be used with clean water
in a residential application. Do not use it with
alternative fluids, specifically abrasive, corrosive
or explosive fluids. Do not install or operate your
pump in an explosive environment or near
combustible matter.
Incorrectly installed or tested equipment may fail,
causing severe injury or property damage.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high
temperatures. To reduce risk of fire, do not allow
leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around
the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the
motor, let it cool for at least 20 minutes before
trying to work on it. A thermal overload switch
protects the motor from heat damage during
operation.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer, it’s service agent or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard
Children should be supervised do ensure they do
not play with the appliance
PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION
Inspect your pump, ensuring that it is well packaged and has not been damaged in transport. If the pump is damaged, report it to the Reece
branch where the pump was purchased. Make sure the suction piping is completely air tight and is laid so that there can be no air locks.
Warranty of these pumps is void unless they are operated in accordance with these instructions.
PUMP PROTECTION
The pump should be protected from the weather, floods, chemicals, dust, vermin and insects. It is recommended that the pump be housed in a
weather proof, well vented enclosure.
VADA - V110-H
GENERAL INSTALLATION
1. Fitting an Auto Pressure Control or Mains Water Switch Over Device
If you are using a Vada Auto Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device with your pump, connect it either directly to the top of the
pump or in a suitable position in line with the delivery piping. For further instructions on connecting these devices, please refer to the manual
supplied with your unit. Ensure that the power lead remains disconnected until you have completed the installation process.
2. Locating the Pump
Find a location for your pump as close to your water source as possible. Ensure that this location is stable, dry and on a separate footing from
your home. To do this you can mount the pump on a concrete base.
3. Power Source
Arrange for an electrician to install a 10A weatherproof outdoor power point near the pump if there is not one there already.
4. Suction
This is the most important part of the installation as errors will cause significant problems for the system in performance and longevity.
A gate valve must be installed at the water source outlet. To maintain optimum performance from your pump, the suction pipe should be:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Kept to the shortest length practical.
Re-enforced crush resistant (non-collapsible) hose or pipe.
All fittings should be air tight.
Pipes should be equal to or larger than the diameter of the suction/inlet port.
When pumping from a well/pit etc. a foot valve should be installed on the suction pipe.
Optional: Fitted with a suction Strainer/Filter*
*In-line strainers/filters are only recommended for pumps fitted with a Vada Auto Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device. Regular
maintenance is required to keep them clean and provide maximum pump pressure.
5. Discharge
The length and diameter of the discharge hoses/pipes will affect the pressure and flow rate at which your pump operates. Pressure ratings of all
components must exceed the maximum pressure of the pump by an appropriate safety factor. All pipe work should be supported independently
of the pump.
If you want to test that the pump is operating correctly prior to having the plumbing connected, attach a hose with a trigger nozzle to the top of
the pump or the connected discharge hoses/pipes.
6. Pump Priming
Ensure that there is at least 200mm of water in your tank, (i.e. that the tank outlet is covered, and the pump will not draw any air into the system).
Open the gate valve on the water source. Check for any leaks, and repair these if necessary.
•
If no leaks are present, remove the priming plug to open the priming port on the top of the pump case. If the tank is above the level of the
pump, water will start to run out of this port. Replace the priming plug carefully. Your pump is now ready to run.
•
If the tank water level is below the level of the pump, you will need to fill the pump body and suction line. Remove the priming plug and fill
the pump body and suction line using a funnel.
VADA - V110-H
ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision
or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
The pump must be supplied by an outlet protected
by a residual current device or earth leakage circuit
breaker with a maximum rated residual current of
30mA
The pump is supplied with:
• A fixed cable featuring a weatherproof IEC socket
• A separate power cable which features a weatherproof IEC plug and a standard Australian 10 amp plug.
If connecting directly to a power outlet, simply connect the two supplied cords using the IEC socket and plug. If you are installing a Vada Auto
Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device, connect the IEC socket from the pump to the IEC plug cord on the device.
Ensuring there are no water traces on the connectors push them firmly into each other to ensure intended splash (water) proof protection. This
connection shall be separated again only for service purpose and only after the power supply is removed by unplugging the cord form the socket
outlet. The socket outlet shall be in dry and flood free location; preferably do not use extension cords for this very reason and because they can
cause voltage drop. Supply voltage outside limits specified in Model Data can cause motor overheat leading to overload tripping, reduced
component life or seriously damage pump and voids warranty.
For additional protection, the pump must be supplied from an outlet protected by a residual current device – RCD (also known as an Earth
Leakage Circuit breaker – ELCB) with a maximum rated residual current of 30mA.
OPERATION
The pump operator or owner must be provided
with this owner’s manual. This must be read before
operation, and followed during operation.
Ensure that your pump is filled with water before
operating.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high
temperatures. To reduce risk of fire, do not allow
leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around
the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling
the motor, let it cool for at least 20 minutes before
trying to work on it. A thermal overload switch protects the motor for heat damage during operation.
DO NOT RUN PUMP DRY
Ensure that your pump is primed before operating
The pump is designed to be used with clean water
in a residential application. Do not use it with
alternative fluids, specifically abrasive, corrosive
or explosive fluids. Do not install or operate your
pump in an explosive enviroment or near
combustible matter.
START-UP/OPERATION
Open all valves in the suction and discharge lines. When the power is turned on, the pump will start to pump water. Without an Auto Pressure
Control or Mains Water Switch-Over Device, the pump will continue to operate until the power is switched off.
Most applications will incorporate an Auto Pressure Control or Mains Water Switch-Over Device which will stop the pump as soon as it has
pressurised the system it is connected to. For instructions on operating your pump with one of these devices, please refer to the manual that
came with your unit.
The system is now ready for use. If no water is delivered, check the troubleshooting section.
VADA - V110-H
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE
Pump should only be serviced by qualified
personnel. For best results, use only genuine service parts. Be sure to prime pump before starting.
Liquid may be HOT, release pressure with care
before servicing.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard,
turn OFF power to motor and remove plug from
power outlet before working on pump or motor.
GENERAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Under normal conditions VADA pumps do not need any type of maintenance. In order to avoid possible failures, it is advisable to periodically
check the pressure supplied and current absorption. A decrease in pressure is a symptom of wear. An increase in current absorption is a sign of
abnormal mechanical friction in the pump and/or motor.
If the pump is not going to be used for long periods of time it should be emptied completely, rinsed with clean water and put in a dry place.
