History Notes
INTRODUCTION
The Puresilk Chromatalyzer utilizes proven colourimetric technology and a patented analysis technique to
control the pH and chlorine levels in swimming pools and spas.
It takes the guesswork out of balancing and treating your pool water and through automation, eliminates the
constant requirement to handle dangerous chemicals.
The need to regularly test water, balance pH correction and manage chlorine dosage is very important in
maintaining healthy balanced water.
Bather load and environmental impacts are dynamic, therefore guessing a dosage requirement to control these
parameters is not sufficient.
The chlorine demand in a pool may vary enormously with changing bather load, water temp, debris and the
application of covers.
Typically, on a domestic pool, the Chromatalyzer will perform three pH and chlorine tests per day.
The results of these tests are compared with the targets set.
If a correction is required, the Chromatalyzer will initiate a pump or device to feed a prescribed dosage of
chlorine and/or acid to the pool or spa water.
Where a Salt Chlorinator is installed, the Chromatalyzer will switch the chlorinator ON and OFF to achieve the
desired chlorine target.
Where a pool and spa combination exists, the Chromatalyzer is able to establish which volume it is treating with
the installation of a flow switch in the spa suction line.
The only time the spa suction is utilized is if only the spa is being filtered and treated.
The Chromatalyzer therefore recognises if the smaller spa volume is to be treated and alters its dosage
calculations.
Given the average spa is approximately 25 times smaller in volume than a pool, and is therefore more volatile,
the Chromatalyzer automatically increases the frequency of testing to best manage this small body of water.
The Puresilk Chromatalyzer will ensure your pool water is correctly sanitised and the pH maintained.
The other less volatile balance parameters such as total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels must be
checked and adjusted by you local pool professional.
Seven years of ground breaking research and development has resulted in the development of this great
Australian product.
This innovative technology will benefit pool owners and commercial pools all over the world.
Thankyou for purchasing this great Australian product.

HOW THE PURESILK CHROMATALYZER WORKS
This flow chart is a basic representation of the Chromatalyzer test sequence.
FILTER PUMP SWITCHES ON
SAMPLE SWITCH ACTIVATES
CHROMATALYZER WAITS 5 MIN BEFORE INITIATING TEST SEQUENCE
PERFORMS pH TEST
DISPLAYS pH RESULT
PERFORMS CHLORINE TEST
DISPLAYS CL RESULT
IF CL IS BELOW TARGET - FEED CL
IF pH IS ABOVE TARGET - FEED ACID
NOTE: CPS2 and COMM1000 (salt chlorinator component only)
Where a salt chlorinator is controlled, both chlorinator and acid feed may occur simultaneously.
CPS3 and COMM1000 (Liquid or Solid Chlorine component only)
Where a liquid chlorine pump or any solid chlorine feed device is controlled, acid will not feed
simultaneously with chlorine feed.
Chlorine, if required, will always complete its prescribed dosage before acid feed is initiated.
All chemical feeds immediately stop if the flow switch detects lack of flow.
The acid feed controlling software has built in safety limits to prevent a gross over feed of acid.
This limit based on:
Volume treated per test cycle
Volume treated per 24hrs
Volume treated per 48hrs - If 48hr limit is reached, acid feed stops and alarm sounds.
2
CHLORINE PRODUCTION AND CONTROL
A free chlorine residual of 1.0ppm to 3.0ppm must be maintained.
The ability of a chlorine generator or liquid chlorine feed pump to maintain the correct chlorine level will depend
on the output of the device and the demand imposed by bather load and environmental factors.
Where a salt chlorinator is installed and is controlled by a Chromatalyzer, ensure the output of the salt
chlorinator is set to maximum.
The Chromatalyzer will monitor and control the chlorine level by switching the chlorinator on for calculated
periods of time based on demand, water volume and the chlorinator’s output capacity.
The CPS3 and COMM1000 have an in-built peristaltic pump which delivers liquid chlorine. The Chromatalyzer
will monitor and control the chlorine level by switching the peristaltic pump ON for calculated periods of time
based on demand, water volume and the Liquid chlorine feed rate.
Testing for chlorine levels is very important and should be performed on a daily basis.
The Chromatalyzer achieves this better than any other method or device.
For the typical domestic swimming pool, three tests for both chlorine and pH are performed daily. If the target
values are not hit, action is initiated via feed mechanisms to correct the level.
The requirement to super chlorinate or shock dose the pool manually during periods of
high chlorine demand is highly recommended and in some or most cases absolutely necessary.
Shock dosing the water manually with chlorine breaks irritating chloramines down and provides
for safer water with reduced chlorine demand.
When a test reveals low chlorine or zero chlorine, always treat manually with chlorine and investigate.
Check if the chlorine generator or liquid feed pump is operating correctly.
Check if the filtration cycle is operating long enough for chlorine to be introduced.
EXCESSIVE CHLORINE LEVEL
If an excessive chlorine level exists in a pool or spa and it is not intentional, treat with Sodium Thiosulphate.
Sodium Thiosulphate reacts with the chlorine to reduce the level.
Always follow the instructions on the container to apply the correct amount.
CYANURIC ACID – CHLORINE STABILIZER
The sun’s ultraviolet light breaks down chlorine so it is essential to use a chlorine stabilizer.
Cyanuric acid or chlorine stabilizer, when dissolved in the pool water to achieve levels of between 40ppm to
80ppm will effectively reduce the breakdown of chlorine by ultraviolet light.
Higher stabilizer levels may in fact be detrimental and hinder the kill rate of chlorine.
Consult with your pool professional.
3
WATER BALANCE
pH
pH refers to a logarithmic scale 0 to 14 where 0 represents the acidic end of the scale and 14 represents the
Alkaline end.
A pH of 7 is neutral.
Salt Chlorination increases the pH of pool water to approx 8.4 whereas Liquid Chlorine has a pH of close to 14
and therefore the effect is greater.
The requirement for acid will be greater where Liquid Chlorine Pools exist.
High pH will reduce the effectiveness of chlorine, potentially cause scale on both the pool and
the equipment, and irritate bathers.
Low pH may cause the water to become corrosive, damaging the pool interior finish, equipment and also irritate
bathers.
Each pool finish and type has a specific range in which the pH should remain.
Generally a pH of between 7.2 – 7.6 is suitable for most pool types, however those requiring a higher pH will
also require a higher chlorine residual. (Consult with your pool shop)
Total Alkalinity (T.A.)
The total alkalinity is a measurement of all the alkalis in your pool water, (Carbonates,
Bicarbonates and Hydroxides).
When adjusted within the accepted levels, T.A. acts as a pH buffer, resisting change to the pH.
The recommended T.A. level of your pool may vary from 80ppm – 120ppm depending on the pool finish.
Consult with a pool water professional.
Calcium Hardness
Probably the most ignored of the three yet just as important.
The hardness of your pool water is very important in controlling scale and the corrosive effects of water.
A low calcium level may cause pool water to become corrosive even if the pH is within its recommended range.
Corrosive water can damage pool interiors and equipment if left unchecked.
A high calcium level may cause pool water to deposit scale, again even if the pH is within its recommended
range.
Scale build up can damage equipment and interiors and make heating appliances inefficient.
Salt chlorinator cells may require very frequent cleaning as a result of high Calcium Hardness.
Generally a level of 100ppm – 200ppm is recommended.
Consult with your pool builder or pool shop.
NOTE: We strongly recommend you seek advice from a pool professional regarding the
balancing of water for your pool. A correctly balanced pool will protect it and the
equipment from damage and ensure bathers are swimming in clean clear healthy
pool water.

INSTALLING PURESILK REAGENT BAGS
Warranty void if non genuine reagents are used
Replace bags when empty or after 6 months, which ever comes first
Always keep spare replacement bags and store in a cool, dark place
The contents of each bag is sufficient for 750 tests (Domestic models)
It is good practice to regularly check the contents of the installed bags to help anticipate when a new set of
reagent bags will be required.
If a reagent bag is empty, a flashing warning light and an intermittent alarm will sound to alert the home owner
of the condition.
IMPORTANT:
If one or more of the test reagent bags are empty, the Chromatalyzer will produce a test fault and be unable to
perform tests to obtain real time data.
If this occurs, the Chromatalyzer automatically defaults to an assumption that the deviation from target is 0.1 for
every scheduled test.
This ensures that even if the reagent bag is not replaced in a timely manner, a small chlorine output is
maintained to help prevent the pool from going green.

ACID RESERVOIR
SAFETY
Safety goggles, respirator and gloves suitable for use with hydrochloric acid must
be used by persons handling the acid reservoir, feed and delivery system.
The Hydrochloric acid reservoir must be positioned in a secure location and in such a
manner that access, especially to children is denied.
We recommend the use of industry standard, 15lt containers of 33% Hydrochloric Acid as
the reservoir.
There is no need to dilute the acid as the peristaltic pump and tubing is suitable for use
with 33% HCL.
The use of larger acid storage reservoirs for domestic pools is not recommended.
The use of a 15lt container acts as a physical safety limit for acid delivery.
Hydrochloric acid and its fumes are corrosive and dangerous to persons.
You must prevent the escape of HCL fumes in a confined environment or they may
damage equipment, cause corrosion or be a danger to health.
The Puresilk Chromatalyzer contains a modified 15lt container cap which must be utilized.
This red coloured cap allows air into the container to replace the acid pumped out but
isolates the contents from the atmosphere to prevent fuming.
Cables ties must also be used to lock the cap to the container handle.
This will prevent unauthorised opening of the acid by children.
Check with your supplier for the availability of an acid safety storage container.
These help to prevent access to the acid container by children and act as a secondary
safety and containment vessel.
Ensure the acid feed and delivery tubing is correctly, neatly and safely installed.
DO NOT MIX CHLORINE OR ANY OTHER CHEMICAL WITH HYDROCHLORIC ACID
DO NOT USE HYDROCHLORIC ACID ON A PERISTALTIC PUMP AND FEED SYSTEM
INTENDED AND LABELLED FOR LIQUID CHLORINE USE.
DO NOT USE LIQUID CHLORINE ON A PERISTALTIC PUMP AND FEED SYSTEM
INTENDED FOR HYDROCHLORIC ACID USE.

ACID RESERVOIR – CONTINUED
DOES THE ACID RESERVOIR REQUIRE REPLACEMENT?
Inspect your acid reservoir regularly to ensure you have sufficient volume at hand.
The Chromatalyzer will provide an intermittent audible warning and illuminate the check acid or feed
rate if the pH target is not achieved within a 72hr period.
If the pH target is not hit within a 72hr period, the most likely reason is that the Acid Reservoir is empty.
Check and replace.

LIQUID CHLORINE RESERVOIR
CPS3 & COMM1000 ONLY
SAFETY
Safety goggles, respirator and gloves suitable for use with sodium hypochlorite must be
used by persons handling the liquid chlorine reservoir, feed and delivery system.
The liquid chlorine reservoir must be positioned in a secure location and in such a manner
that access, especially to children is denied.
We recommend the use of industry standard, 15lt containers of 12.5% Sodium Hypochlorite
as the reservoir. In some cases, the use of larger on-site storage containers may be more
practical.
There is no need to dilute the Liquid Chlorine as the peristaltic pump and tubing is suitable
for use with 12.5% Sodium Hypochlorite.
Sodium Hypochlorite is corrosive and dangerous to persons.
You must prevent leakage of this liquid or it may damage equipment, cause corrosion or be
a danger to health.
The Puresilk Chromatalyzer contains a modified blue coloured 15lt container cap which
must be utilised. This cap is know as the "LC CAP"
This "LC CAP" allows air into the container to replace the liquid pumped out and prevents
air within from expanding and potentially rupturing the container.
Cables ties must also be used to lock the cap to the container handle.
This will prevent unauthorised opening of the liquid chlorine by children.
Check with your supplier for the availability of a safety storage container.
These help to prevent access to the chlorine container by children and act as a secondary
safety and containment vessel.
Ensure the liquid chlorine feed and delivery tubing is correctly, neatly and safely installed.
DO NOT MIX CHLORINE OR ANY OTHER CHEMICAL WITH HYDROCHLORIC ACID

SET POOL AND OR SPA VOLUME
Before operation, it is necessary to program the Pool and/or Spa volume into the Chromatalyzer.
The unit performs both chlorine and acid dosage calculations based on the volume treated to hit set points.
The Chromatalyzer is pre-programmed with factory defaults of 50,000lts for Pools and 1,500lts for Spas.
Although these are common values, you must alter them to best approximate your own Pool and or Spa
volume.
The pre-set Pool volumes are listed below and correspond to volumes of zero, up to 999,000lts
0, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500,
600, 700, 800, 900, 999.
The pre-set Spa volumes are listed below and correspond to volumes from zero up to 10,000lts
0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0, 10.
The numbers listed represent cubic metres of water.
Eg: The number 50 = 50 Cubic metres = 50,000lts
Please note:
With spa only installations where the volume is less than 10,000lts,
Set the Pool Volume to zero - spa switch is not required.
With pool only installations where the volume is less than 10,000lts,
Set the Pool Volume to zero and operate pool as a spa - spa switch is not required.
Optional spa switch is required where pool and spa combinations exist.

TP AND TS VARIABLES
Note:
Optional Spa Switch MUST BE installed on Spa Suction line where a Pool and Spa combination
installation exists.
Note:
The daily filtration time MUST NOT be split into multiple periods.
TP = TEST FREQUENCY POOL
This term and its corresponding value refers to the time period between pool tests.
Setting the TP - Test Frequency Pool value is applicable for the following installations
Pool and Spa combinations
Pool only - where the volume is greater than 10,000lts
Spa only - where the volume is greater than 10,000lts - Volumes greater than 10,000lts are operated as Pools.
For domestic swimming pools operating a filter pump for 8hrs per day, the pre-programmed factory default test
frequency is No.10 which corresponds to a test every 2 hours and 40 minutes.
The test frequency for this example is shown below.
You will see that the period after the last test is equal to the other periods.
This is important as it provides adequate time for the Chromatalzyer to complete any dosage requirements.

The TP - Test Frequency Pool recommendations on page 20 ensure that you optimise the efficiency of the
analysis and chemical delivery systems.
TS = TEST FREQUENCY SPA
This term and its corresponding value refers to the time period between spa tests.
Setting the TS - Test Frequency Spa value is applicable for the following installations:
Pool and spa combinations
Spa only installations
Pool only installations with a volume of less than 10,000lts - volumes less than 10,000lts are operated as spas.
For spa only installations, filtration times of 2hrs per day are common.
Refer to the guide on page 20 to select the appropriate TS value for 2hrs per day.
POOL AND SPA COMBINATIONS
Where a pool and spa combination exists, the optional spa switch must be installed on the spa suction line. The
spa switch enables the Chromatalyzer to recognise when the spa only is being filtered and therefore choose the
appropriate volume of water to treat.
When spa mode is recognised, an LED is illuminated on the control panel.
During spa mode, TS -Test Frequency Spa is automatically selected.
The increased test frequency ensures the rapidly changing Spa environment is adequately tested and treated.
During spa mode, the chlorine level and pH are affected by environmental factors and higher bather load ratios
many times more quickly than during pool mode.
The higher test frequency enables the Chromatalyzer to react to a change in chlorine and pH levels and prevent
them from drifting from the set targets.
During normal filtration of the pool and spa system, the spa suction line remains closed.
Water is drawn from the pool with a small portion or all of the water returning to the spa.
The excess water flows from the spa, back into the pool via pipes or an overflow.
This ensures that the water in both the pool and spa is being turned over and will not stagnate.
The spa suction line is opened when the spa ONLY is being filtered or heated for use.
The spa switch detects when the spa ONLY is being filtered and or heated.
When this occurs, the Chromatalyzer selects the TS variable which delivers a high test frequency in order to
control the dynamic spa environment.
FOR POOL AND SPA COMBINATIONS - ALWAYS USE THE FACTORY DEFAULT FOR TS = 03

TEST FREQUENCY VERSES DAILY FILTRATION TIME TABLES
For the average domestic Swimming Pool, three test sequences for chlorine and pH should be performed per
day.
For the average domestic Spa not connected to a swimming pool, three test sequences for chlorine and pH
should be performed per day.
It is important to synchronise the daily filtration time with the Test Frequency to avoid wasted tests and optimise
the efficiency of the analysis and chemical delivery systems.
A wasted test sequence occurs when the filter pump switches off before the Chromatalyzer has time to act on
the results.
DO NOT SPLIT DAILY FILTER TIMES
DO NOT PROGRAM FILTER PUMP TO OPERATE MULTIPLE ON AND OFF TIMES PER DAY
OPERATE FILTER PUMP FOR A CONTINUOUS SINGLE PERIOD PER DAY
Where it is deemed three tests per day is insufficient such as in a commercial pool, the table on the

SET ACID FEED - AF
The pre-programmed factory default AF value of "04" does not require alteration where a
single Puresilk peristaltic pump is utilized with 33% Hydrochloric Acid.
The choice of feed rates is made available for adaptation where multiple acid feed pumps are being utilised or
the 33% HCL is diluted prior to feed.
Co2 injection via a solenoid valve may also be controlled.
Acid is introduced into the pool and/or spa by the Chromatalyzer via various feed methods.
Standard systems utilize an inbuilt peristaltic pump to feed hydrochloric acid, although external pumps and CO2
injector systems may be used.
The built in peristaltic pump feeds approx 55ml per minute into a return line with a pressure of up to 250kpa.
Acid is only fed if the pool flow switch indicates water flow ensuring the concentrate is diluted before it enters
the pool or spa.
Acid feed may occur simultaneously with salt chlorinator operation.
Acid feed WILL NOT occur simultaneously with liquid chlorine feed for safety reasons.
A 30 second delay exists between the completion of a liquid chlorine feed and an acid feed.
An acid feed will stop if a spa switch is activated during a feed based on the pool volume. This ensures
excessive acid is not fed into the smaller spa volume.
There are seven ACID FEED variables to choose from, but as explained, the factory default will rarely require
alteration.
Each of these variables corresponds to a formula which calculates the acid volume required to correct the pH
based on the pool or spa volume.
Each pool and or spa system has different environmental impacts and rates of change with respect to pH.
For this reason, if the factory set default of AF04 is feeding too much acid and overshooting the target, a lower
feed rate may be chosen.
The calculations incorporate an algorithm which uses test data to alter the dosage calculations to best suit the
acid demand in the pool or spa.
There are six AF - ACID FEED variables to choose from.
AF 00, AF 01, AF 02, AF 03, AF 04, AF 05
Each of these numbers corresponds to an ACID FEED calculation.
AF 00 - FEED OFF
AF 01 - 4 x Standard Delivery (¼ strength acid, 8.25% HCL)
AF 02 - 3 x Standard Delivery (1/3 strength acid, 11% HCL)
AF 03 - 2 x Standard Delivery (½ strength acid, 16.5% HCL)
AF 04 - Standard Default Delivery (33% HCL)
AF 05 - Half Standard Delivery
The factory set default of AF 04 is based on the requirements for the average domestic swimming pool and spa.
Where increased or decreased pH correction dosages are required, follow the procedure on page 23 to
change an ACID FEED variable to suit your application.
22

SET CF - CHLORINE FEED - SALT CHLORINATOR CONTROL
CPS2 AND COMM1000 MODELS ONLY
The pre-programmed factory default CF value of "03" WILL NOT require alteration where a salt
chlorinator is installed and sized correctly to the pool volume.
Chlorine is introduced into the pool and/or spa by the Chromatalyzer via various feed methods.
The CPS2 and COMM1000 switch a salt chlorinator on and off for various periods of time to meet the demand
requirements of the pool and/or spa.
The COMM1000 also utilizes an inbuilt peristaltic pump to feed sodium hypochlorite, although external pumps
may be used.
The CF - Chlorine Feed Value relates to calculations that control the ON and OFF time of a salt chlorinator.
The salt chlorinator may simultaneously deliver chlorine whilst the peristaltic pump is delivering acid.
The salt chlorinator may simultaneously deliver chlorine whilst the peristaltic pump is delivering liquid
chlorine (COMM1000 only).
There are nine CF - CHLORINE FEED values to choose from.
Each of these variables corresponds to a formula which calculates the chlorine volume required to hit the
chlorine target based on the pool or spa volume.
Each pool and/or spa system has different environmental impacts and rates of change with respect to chlorine
demand. For this reason, if the factory set default "03" is feeding insufficient chlorine to hit the chlorine target or
is overshooting and feeding too much chlorine, a greater or lower feed rate may be chosen.
There are nine CF - CHLORINE FEED values to choose from.
CF 00, CF 01, CF 02, CF 03, CF 04, CF 05, CF 06
Each of these numbers corresponds to a CHLORINE FEED calculation.

SET LF - LIQUID CHLORINE FEED
CPS3 AND COMM1000 MODELS ONLY
The pre-programmed factory default value of "03" WILL NOT require alteration where a single
Puresilk Chromatalyzer is installed and correctly sized to the pool volume.
The choice of feed rates is made available for adaptation where multiple chlorine feed pumps are being utilized
or the 12.5% liquid chlorine is diluted prior to feed.
Chlorine erosion feeders may also be controlled with the LF value via solenoid valves.
Liquid chlorine is introduced into the pool and/or spa by the Chromatalyzer via various feed methods.
Standard systems utilize an inbuilt peristaltic pump to feed liquid chlorine, although external pumps may be
utilized.
The built in peristaltic pump feeds approx 55ml per minute into a return line with a pressure of up to 250kpa.
Liquid chlorine is only fed if the pool flow switch indicates water flow ensuring the concentrate is diluted before it
enters the pool or spa.
Liquid chlorine feed may occur simultaneously with salt chlorinator operation (COMM1000 ONLY).
Liquid chlorine feed WILL NOT occur simultaneously with acid feed for safety reasons.
A 30 second delay exists between the completion of a liquid chlorine feed and an acid feed.
A liquid chlorine feed will stop if a spa switch is activated during a feed based on the pool volume. This
ensures excessive liquid chlorine is not fed into the smaller spa volume.
There are seven Liquid Chlorine FEED variables to choose from, but the factory default will rarely require
alteration.
Each of these variables corresponds to a formula which calculates the liquid chlorine volume required to meet
the demand based on the pool or spa volume.
Each pool and/or spa system has different environmental impacts and rates of change with respect to chlorine.
For this reason, if the factory set default of LF03 is feeding an excess and overshooting the target, a lower feed
rate may be chosen.
The calculations incorporate an algorithm which uses test data to alter the dosage calculations to best suit the
chlorine demand in the pool or spa.
There are seven LF - LIQUID CHLORINE FEED variables to choose from.
LF 00, LF 01, LF 02, LF 03, LF 04, LF 05, LF 06
Each of these numbers corresponds to a LIQUID CHLORINE FEED calculation.
00 – Liquid Feed OFF
01 – 3 x Standard Delivery
02 – 1.5 x Standard Delivery
03 – Standard Default Delivery (For use with 12-13% Hypochlorite Solution)
04 – ¾ Standard Delivery

The pre-programmed factory default setting for the pH Target is 7.6
A pH value of 7.6 is widely accepted as a target for most domestic swimming pools.
Conditions in some swimming pools or spas may exist where the target must be set higher or lower.
Swimming pool interiors differ in the requirement for pH, some plaster type interiors may prefer a pH of 7.8
where some fibreglass pool manufacturers prefer the pH to remain at 7.2.
An important factor is the requirement to balance water as per the Langlier Index.
In some areas where the tap water contains high calcium hardness levels, a lower pH than what is considered
normal may have to be applied to prevent scale deposits.
Consult with your pool professional as to which target best suits your pool and/or spa as many factors must be
taken into account.

AUX TIME CLOCK
CPS2, CPS3 AND COMM1000 MODELS
The Aux Time Clock operates on a 24hr clock system where 00:00 is 12:00 midnight.
The Aux Time Clock controls a switched 240V socket at the base of the Chromatalzyer.
Any 240V, 9.5A or less, appliance is suitable to be operated from this outlet.
The Aux Time Clock may be used to operate a filter pump
The Aux Time Clock may be used to operate an in-floor cleaning pump
In-floor cleaning pumps may operate within the time period of the filtration cycle or independent of the filtration
cycle.
Using the Aux Time Clock to control the in-floor cleaning pump provides the option to operate it at any time, or if
the INTERLOCK feature is set, specifically within the filtration cycle.
The Aux Time Clock may be used to operate a pressure cleaner pump.
Many pressure cleaning pumps draw water from the return line of the filtration system and operate for a limited
time within the filtration cycle.
The pressure cleaning pump relies on the filter pump to supply it with water.
If the filter pump switches off or is switched off for backwashing, the pressure cleaner pump will run dry and
damage will occur.
The Puresilk Aux Time Clock has the ability to INTERLOCK the 240V output so that is will not deliver power to
the aux device unless the flow switch recognises flow.
This feature uniquely protects the pressure cleaner pump from damage.
The Aux Time Clock may be used to provide TIME, DAY, MONTH AND YEAR details where optional data
acquisition equipment is installed.
When is it necessary to log testing and operational data, the Aux Time Clock may be programmed so that Time,
Day, Month and Year details appear alongside test data.
This data may be collected on a computer via a data cable or via a wireless modem.
