❸ General use
3.1 I Operating principle
The cleaner is independent of the filtration system and can therefore operate autonomously. It just simply needs to be
connected to the mains power supply.
It finds the best route to move around and clean the areas of the pool for which it has been designed (depending on the
model: bottom, walls, water line). Debris is collected and held in the cleaner's filter.
The cleaner may be operated using one of the following methods:
- The control box, included with the robotic cleaner system;
- A smartphone or tablet which is compatible with the iAquaLink™ application (see "❹ Control using the iAquaLink™
app").
3.2 I Pool preparation
• This product is intended to be used in pools which are permanently installed. Do not use it in
pools which may be dismantled. A permanent pool one which is built into the ground or on
the ground and cannot be easily dismantled and stored.
• The device must operate in pool water of the following quality:
Water temperature
pH
Chlorine
Between 15°C and 35°C
Between 6.8 and 7.6
< 3 mg per L
• When the pool is dirty, especially when commissioning, remove the larger debris using a net in order to optimise the
device's performance.
• Remove any thermometers, toys and other objects that might damage the device.
3.3 I Immersing the cleaner
• Roll out the full length of the cable alongside the pool to prevent it from becoming entangled during immersion (see
image ).
• Position yourself halfway along the length of the pool before immersing the cleaner (see image ). This will optimise
the cleaner's movements and reduce tangling in the cable.
• Lower the cleaner vertically into the water (see image ).
• Move it slightly in all directions so that any air trapped in it can escape (see image ).
• It is essential that the device sinks on its own and settles on the pool bottom. When it is immersed, the cleaner draws
the length of cable it needs into the pool (see image ).

3.4 I Electrical supply connections
To prevent risk electrocution, fire, or serious injury, be sure to adhere to the following:
• The use of an electrical extension cord is prohibited when connecting the control unit.
• Make sure that the socket is easily accessible at all times and is protected from rain or splashes.
• The control box is splash-proof but must not be immersed. It must not be installed in an area
subject to flooding; keep it at least 3.5 metres away from the edge of the pool and avoid
exposing it to direct sunlight.
• Position the control unit close to the socket.
• Unscrew the protective cap (see image ).
• Connect the floating cable to the control unit and lock it into place by turning it clockwise (risk of damage to the
floating cable) (seeimage , ).
• Make sure that the connector is fully pushed in so that no water can get in (see image ).
• Connect the mains cable (see image ). The control unit should only be connected to a power outlet protected by a
30mA maximum, Residual Current Device (RCD) (if in doubt contact a qualified technician).

• Press
The cleaner adapts its movement strategy to the cleaning mode, in order to optimise its rate of coverage.
Tip: to improve cleaning performance
At the start of the bathing season, run a few cleaning cycles in bottom only mode (after removing any large
debris with a net).
Regular use of the cleaner (not more than 3 times a week) will keep your pool permanently clean and the
filter less clogged.
10
3.6.2 Ending the cleaning cycle
To prevent damaging the equipment:
• Do not pull on the cable to remove the appliance from the pool. Use the handle.
• Do not leave the appliance to dry out in sunlight after use.

• Screw the protective cap back on if you unplug the control box power cord.
• Switch off the device by pressing
.
• When the cleaner is within arm's reach, pick it up by the handle and lift it gently out of the pool so that the water it
contains drains into the pool (see image
).
• Place the cleaner vertically in the location provided on the caddy (depending on the model) for it to dry out quickly
(see image ).
• Then store it with the control unit away from sunlight and anywhere it might be splashed with water. A protective
cover is available as an option (see image ).
3.6.3 "Out of water" mode
This function enables the cleaner to be returned to an exact point at the edge of the pool. When it climbs the wall, the
cleaner sprays a jet of water behind it to make it lighter when lifted out of the pool.
• Direct the cleaner towards the required pool wall, then make it climb to the water line: keep pressure on it
tilt it. The cleaner moves towards the wall when you release the button.
to
Tip: avoid the floating cable becoming too entangled
The cleaner's behaviour is strongly affected by the cable becoming tangled. A cable which is correctly
untangled will ensure better coverage of the pool.
• Untangle the cable and lay it out in the sun so that it returns to its original shape.
• Then roll it up carefully and place it on the caddy handle.
