Section 2.
Warning and Safety Instructions
SAFETY INFORMATION, (cont’d.)
WARNING — Risk of fire or explosion from incorrect fuel use or faulty fuel conversion. Do not try to run a
heater set up for natural gas on propane gas or vice versa. Only qualified service technicians should
attempt to convert heater from one fuel to the other. Do not attempt to alter the rated input or type of
gas by changing the orifice. If it is necessary to convert to a different type of gas, consult your Pentair
dealer. Serious malfunction of the burner can occur which may result in loss of life. Any additions,
changes, or conversions required in order for the appliance to satisfactorily meet the application needs
must be made by a Pentair dealer or other qualified agency using factory specified and approved
parts. The heater is available for use with natural gas or LP (propane) gas only. It is not designed to
operate with any other fuels. Refer to the nameplate for the type of gas the heater is equipped to use.
s 5SEHEATERONLYWITHTHEFUELFORWHICHITISDESIGNED
s )F A FUEL CONVERSION IS NECESSARY REFER THIS WORK TO A QUALIlED SERVICE TECHNICIAN OR GAS SUPPLIER before putting the heater into operation.
WARNING — Risk of fire or explosion from flammable vapors. Do not store gasoline, cleaning fluids, varnishes,
paints, or other volatile flammable liquids near heater or in the same room with heater.
WARNING — Risk of explosion if unit is installed near propane gas storage. Propane (LP) gas is heavier than
air. Consult local codes and fire protection authorities about specific installation requirements and
restrictions. Locate the heater away from propane gas storage and filling equipment as specified by
the Standard for the Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum Gases, CAN/CSA B149.2 (latest
edition) or ANSI/NFPA 58 (latest edition).
WARNING — Risk of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, or asphyxiation if exhaust venting system leaks. Only
qualified service technicians should attempt to service the heater, as leakage of exhaust products or
flammable gas may result from incorrect servicing.
WARNING — Risk of asphyxiation if exhaust is not correctly vented. Follow venting instructions exactly
when installing heater. Do not use a draft hood with this heater, as the exhaust is under pressure
from the burner blower and a draft hood will allow exhaust fumes to blow into the room housing the
heater. The heater is supplied with an integral venting system for outdoor installation. A vent conversion
kit (See Page 23 for Part Numbers for Conversion Kits) is available for installations in enclosures
Canada) or indoors (U.S.). Use the specified venting, and only the specified venting, when heater is
installed in an enclosure or indoors. In Canada, this pool heater can only be installed outdoors or in
an enclosure that is not normally occupied and has no openings directly into occupied areas. See
Page 18 for enclosure venting requirements.
CAUTION — Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper
and dangerous operation. Wiring errors can also destroy the control board.

Before operating the heater on a new installation, turn on
the circulation pump and bleed all the air from the filter
using the air relief valve on top of the filter. Water should
flow freely through the heater. Do not operate the heater
unless water in the pool/spa is at the proper level. If a
manual by-pass is installed, temporarily close it to insure
that all air is purged from the heater.

pump. When chemical feeders are installed in the circulation of the piping system, make sure the feeder outlet line is
down stream of the heater, and is equipped with a positive seal noncorrosive “Check Valve”, (P/N R172288), between
the feeder and heater.

BELOW OR ABOVE POOL INSTALLATION
The water pressure switch is set in the factory at 3.00 PSI (± 0.75 PSI). This setting is for a heater installed at pool level.
If the heater is to be installed more than 1’ above or below, the water pressure switch must be adjusted by a qualified
service technician. See page 34, Figure 29.
FLOW SWITCH
If the heater is installed more than 5’ above the pool or more than 4’ below the pool level, you will be beyond the limits
of the pressure switch and a flow switch must be installed. Locate and install the flow switch externally on the outlet
piping from the heater, as close as possible to the heater. Connect the flow switch wires in place of the water pressure
switch wires.

The gas meter should be checked to make sure that it will supply enough gas to the heater and any other appliances that
may be used on the same meter. The gas line from the meter will usually be of a larger size than the gas valve supplied
with the heater. Therefore a reduction of the connecting gas pipe will be necessary. Make this reduction as close to the
heater as possible.

WARNING
Risk of explosion if a unit burning propane gas is installed in a pit or other low spot. Propane is heavier than air. Do not
install the heater using propane in pits or other locations where gas might collect. Consult your local building code officials to
determine installation requirements and specific installation restrictions of the heater relative to propane storage tanks and filling
equipment. Installation must meet the requirements for the Standard for the Storage and Handling of Liquid Petroleum Gases,
ANSI/NFPA 58 (latest edition) in the U.S., or CAN/CSA B149.2 (latest edition) in Canada. Consult local codes and fire protection
authorities about specific installation restrictions.

WARNING
Risk of asphyxiation if exhaust is not correctly vented. Follow venting instructions exactly when installing heater. Do not
use a draft hood with this heater, as the exhaust is under pressure from the burner blower and a draft hood will allow exhaust
fumes to blow into the room housing the heater. Exhaust venting to the outdoors is required for all outdoor shelter installations.
WARNING
Risk of explosion if a unit burning propane gas is installed in a pit or other low spot. Propane is heavier than air. Do
not install the heater using propane in pits or other locations where gas might collect. Consult your local building code officials
to determine installation requirements and specific installation restrictions of the heater relative to propane storage tanks and
filling equipment. Installation must meet the requirements for the Standard for the Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum
Gases, CAN/CSA B149.2 (latest edition) or ANSI/NFPA 58 (latest edition). Consult local codes and fire protection authorities
about specific installation restrictions.

WARNING
Risk of fire and explosion if installed at floor level in an automotive garage or near gasoline or flammable liquid storage.
Gasoline fumes are heavier than air and will settle to floor level in closed spaces. Gasoline fumes and spilled gasoline or other
volatile liquids (such as some paints and varnishes) will travel across the floor and can be ignited by a gas appliance.

Troubleshooting Instruction
Initial Troubleshooting
Only qualified, trained service technicians with appropriate test equipment should service the heater. Remember
that all parts of the system affect heater operation. Before starting this troubleshooting procedure, make sure that
the pump is running correctly, that there are no blockages in the system, that the valves are correctly set and that
the time clock is correctly set and is running.
IMPORTANT! READ ME FIRST!
NOTICE: Installing the black 120 volt plug in the control box and
then connecting the heater to a 240 volt line will destroy the trans former, control broad, and ignition control module, and will void the
warranty. If you install the red 240 volt plug and then connect the
heater to a 120 volt line, the heater will not operate.
READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
1. Check the line voltage to your heater. This heater will operate
on either 120 Volts AC or 240 Volts AC.
2. Remove the covers and check the 12-pin plug in the back of the
control box. The plug must match the voltage in the heater circuit.
3. If the 12-pin plug is not plugged into the back of the control
box, select the correct plug from the bag in the control box
and plug it in. The BLACK plug is for 120 volts, the RED plug
is for 240 volts.

Heater Will Not Fire - D
IMPORTANT! READ ME FIRST!
IMPORTANT! READ ME FIRST!!
If your heater is correctly connected to 240 Volts AC, the
Ignition Control Module (ICM) will convert the 240VAC to
an intermittent pulse to the ignitor. Digital meters don’t read
this type of signal well. (An analog meter will give a better
reading than a digital meter). If the ICM is bad, your volt-
meter will read either 0 VAC or 240 VAC. If your ICM is
good, your meter will read some voltage between 0 and
240 VAC. Exactly what reading you get will depend on the
meter, but with a good ICM, the reading won’t be 0 VAC or
240 VAC, but somewhere in between.
