Before you Begin
The Hayward HydroRiteTM HYD-UVO is designed for use in residential swimming pools and spas; it must not be used in potable (drinking) water installations. Use
of this product in applications other than swimming pools and spas will void your warranty and could be harmful to your health or the health of others.
How the Hayward HydroRite Works
The Hayward HydroRite contains a high intensity electrically operated Ultraviolet (UV) lamp which is located inside the unit’s wet chamber. The UV lamp emits
light at two separate wavelengths within the UV spectrum; 254 nm and 185 nm. The 254 nm wavelength is called the “germicidal” wavelength. This wavelength
is capable of inactivating a wide array of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa (e.g. Cryptosporidium and Giardia), algae spores and other single
vesseled waterborne microbes. The 254 nm UV light alters the DNA and RNA of the microorganisms rendering them incapable of infection. The 185 nm wavelength, on the other hand, is called the “ozone generating” wavelength and is responsible for converting oxygen contained in the quartz sleeve area, into ozone.
The ozone so created is introduced into the water stream using a venturi. Ozone, a strong oxidizer and bactericide, works together with the UV to oxidize bather
waste and inactivate microorganisms utilizing a process known as “advanced-oxidation”.
When the HydroRite is creating Ozone, bubbles will appear within the HydroRite vessel and may also be seen at the return jets in the pool. At flow rates below
35 gpm, Ozone creation will stop and the bubbles will disappear. Although low flow rates will prevent the creation of ozone, the longer exposure time to UV
light within the vessel will increase the efficiency and efficacy of the UV sanitization process. Consider these factors when setting run times and pump speeds.

Determine a suitable location
Installation of HydroRite system requires mounting the controller and vessel, plumbing the vessel, venturi and flow switch (on the return side of the filter pump),
and finally, connecting the required cables. Remove power to the pool filter pump before starting this installation. Installation must be performed in accordance
with local and NEC code.
Heaters can be installed before or after the HydroRite system but water temperature must not exceed 104º at the entrance of the Vessel. If locating a heater
before the HydroRite Vessel, please note that water temperatures at the exit of a heater can be substantially higher than the current heat setting.
The HydroRite vessel must be mounted at least 10 ft. from the pool. The controller must be mounted a minimum of 6 ft. horizontal distance (or more, if local
codes require) from the pool and has a 6 ft. power cord that must be connected to a GFCI protected circuit. Refer to the diagram above for lengths of other cords
and the venturi tube. Note that the vessel and flow switch will be plumbed into the return plumbing after the heater and all other equipment with the exception
of chemical feeders and chlorination systems.

Mounting the Controller
The controller is designed to mount vertically on a flat surface with the cables facing downward. Because the enclosure also acts as a heat sink (disperses heat
from inside the box), it is important not to block the four sides of the controller. Do not mount the controller inside a panel or tightly enclosed area. If the supply
or a lamp cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
After ensuring that the controller’s cables can reach their destinations, mount the controller to the intended surface using proper mounting hardware given the
size and weight of the unit. The controller’s mounting brackets require a total of 6 mounting bolts to fasten the controller to the mounting surface.
Plumbing the HydroRite System
Note that the Hydrorite system will impose additional head loss to the pool’s circulation system. As such, Hayward recommends that the HydroRite system be
plumbed in a manner (see diagram on page 3) that allows the unit to be bypassed under high flow conditions. It is expected that high flow conditions would
be encountered when utilizing the jets of a spa, or operating a suction cleaner or activating a water feature, as a few examples. In these high flow situations, a
valve and actuator (included with the product) can be used to bypass the Hydrorite system to avoid the added head loss. Be aware that the Hydrorite will not be
sanitizing the water when the bypass mode is used.
When using automation systems such as Hayward’s Omnilogic or Prologic systems, the valve/actuator can be made to be part of a group or theme setting so
that the valve will turn and allow the bypass of the Hydrorite system under the conditions where high flow is used. Note that lower flow rates are always better
for energy savings and filtration performance.
When installing the HydroRite below the waterline, 3-way valves on the inlet and outlet lines to the vessel are mandatory. Failure to use valves where any portion of the device is below the waterline will not allow the device to be properly drained which could lead to cracking of the unit if any retained water freezes.
Securing the Vessel
Vessel
Cap
When the vessel installation location has been determined, it should be
secured to a concrete or wood base. Four mounting holes are located in
the mounting base of the unit that accommodates ¼ inch diameter bolts
to mount the HydroRite unit in place. FAILURE TO PROPERLY SECURE THE
UNIT MAY CAUSE NOISE DUE TO VIBRATION CAUSED BY WATER PASSING
THROUGH THE WET CHAMBER. Secure the vessel using bolts and anchors
(not supplied) where necessary and appropriate for your installation.
Do not
remove
Outlet Pipe
Plumbing the Vessel
The HydroRite vessel comes with union nuts and tails pre-assembled on
the housing. Remove the Inlet and Outlet nuts and note the orientation of
the orange gaskets when removing union tails. These will need to be put
back together after gluing the union tails to the pool piping.
Inlet Pipe
Union
Tail
Union
Nut
After cutting pipe to length, slide one union nut onto the cut pipe and glue
the gray tail piece to the pipe end. Repeat for the other pipe. Thread the
union nuts onto the vessel and handtighten both unions. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. OVERTIGHTENING WILL BREAK THE UNION NUTS. To avoid stress on the connections at the vessel, piping should be supported and should not rest solely upon the unions.
Plumbing the Flow Switch
The flow switch is a safety device that ensures that the HydroRite is only operating when there is water passing through the vessel. The flow switch must be
plumbed in the same section of plumbing as the vessel. Failure to properly install the flow switch can result in damage to the pool’s equipment.
IMPORTANT: There must be at least a 12” (30cm) straight pipe run before (upstream) the flow switch.
IMPORTANT: To ensure proper operation, verify that the arrow on the flow
switch points in the direction of water flow.
Head Loss
The venturi assembly is pre-assembled and ready to be plumbed. A 3 ft
hose connection is made from the venturi to the ozone manifold at the vessel
as shown in the diagram on page 3. More information about the venturi tube
and connection can be found on page 5.

If using a chlorine erosion feeder or other chemical feeders, install a check valve (see diagram on page 3) to isolate the vessel from the feeder, preventing chlorine from
backfeeding when the pump is off. For salt chlorinators,
a check valve is not necessary because those systems
stop producing chlorine when the pump is off.
Venturi Tube
After plumbing is complete, run the filter pump and
check for leaks in the HydroRite system. Address
any concerns before making electrical connections.
Electrical Connections
Do not plug in the electrical power cord until all wiring
is complete.
There are 2 wiring connections between the controller
and the HydroRite vessel. In addition, a connection must
be made at the controller from the flow switch.

Input Power
HydroRite uses a linecord for input power and must be plugged into a 120V 50/60hz GFCI protected outlet. NOTE: Should the electrical power cord of your
HydroRite unit become frayed or damaged, unplug it from the power receptacle and contact Hayward. USE OF A FRAYED OR DAMAGED POWER CORD COULD
RESULT IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK CAUSING SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH.
Pool Preparation
Water Preparation
Now that HydroRite has been plumbed and wired, start the pool pump and verify that there are no leaks at the vessel. Before starting operation of HydroRite,
the pool’s chemistry should be checked and adjusted to the recommended levels shown below. If opening the pool for the first time of the season, sanitize and
balance the pool BEFORE operating HydroRite.
NOTE: UV light, whether from HydroRite or the sun, will deplete the pool’s chlorine over time. It’s important to maintain the proper level of Cyanuric Acid (Stabilizer) to prevent this reaction. Use the recommended level of Cyanuric Acid regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors.

Operation
Start Up and Operation
With the pool water balanced and the installation complete, HydroRite can be plugged into a GFCI protected outlet to begin operation. After powering up, the UV
lamp inside of the vessel will illuminate and the green POWER ON LED on the controller should be lit. HydroRite’s operation is fully automatic and requires no
interaction from the user. It is designed to stay powered and active at all times and will stop sanitizing when it senses that the pool pump has turned off. When
the pool water flow returns, HydroRite will automatically resume operation.
LED Indicators
Power On LED
This green LED will be on under normal operation. Even when the pool pump is not running
and HydroRite shuts off its lamp, the Power On LED will be lit.
Lamp/Ballast LED
This red LED indicator will come on when there is an issue with the lamp or ballast. It will
also light if there is a problem with the connection from the ballast cable to the lamp. Note
that the lamp has a defined life and will eventually need to be replaced. Refer to Maintenance
and the UV Lamp Replacement sections of this manual for more information.
Flow/Over Temperature/Interlock LED
The HydroRite will shut down due to the following conditions:
• Flow - the LED will light when the HydroRite sense a no-flow condition. This will happen
normally whenever the pool filter pump is turned off and the pool water stops flowing.
• Over Temperature - The HydroRite has a temperature sensor inside its enclosure and
will shut down operation to protect itself if it senses very high temperatures. Note that
high ambient temperatures and direct sunshine can contribute to an over temperature
condition.
• Interlock - The LED will light indicating that the vessel cap has not been installed properly or the interlock connection is not properly made.
Maintenance
HydroRite has been designed for robust performance in the harsh environmental conditions of sun, wind, and rain. Like most pool equipment, routine maintenance will help provide years of trouble-free service. While HydroRite requires very little maintenance throughout the year, inorganic and organic chemicals may
deposit on the surface of the quartz sleeve causing it to appear hazy/foggy and reducing its efficacity by lowering the germicidal UV (254nm wavelength light)
transmittance. Cleaning the sleeve should return HydroRite to previous performance.
Hayward recommends that you remove the lamp and clean the sleeve every 1-3 months depending on the condition of your pool’s water. The sleeve may need
more frequent cleaning in areas of the country that have hard water. The quartz sleeve can be manually cleaned or cleaned with an in-line automatic cleaner.
Automatic Cleaning of the Quartz Sleeve
When using an automatic cleaner, the HydroRite’s quartz sleeve can be cleaned with no need to disassemble the vessel. When the user initiates a cleaning, an
acid bath will clean the quartz sleeve. The cleaner is connected
to the inlet and outlet ports located on the top and bottom sides of
the vessel only when cleaning, then disconnected during normal
operation. If automatic cleaning will be employed, three way valves
are required to isolate the HydroRite vessel from the pool’s plumbing. Refer to your automatic cleaner for cleaning instructions.
Muriatic Acid: Use a diluted mixture of 4 parts water to 1 part
Muriatic acid (20º Baume hydrochloric acid 31.45% by weight).
Always add acid to water, and do so slowly.
Disposing of Acid
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to properly dispose
of the Muriatic Acid mixture.

Manual Cleaning of the Quartz Sleeve
To remove and clean the quartz sleeve, follow the steps shown below:
CAUTION: The UV lamp is sensitive to handling and should be allowed to fully cool before being moved. Wait at least 30 minutes after disconnecting power to
begin the removal process.
1. Disconnect Power
Unplug the device from its Power Outlet.
2. Stop the Circulation Pump
You must shut off the circulation pump so that no water is flowing into the vessel. When you are absolutely sure that there remains no pressure inside the
HydroRite vessel, you can proceed to the next step.
3. Drain the HydroRite System
You must drain the unit before any internal maintenance is performed. To drain, unscrew the threaded plug from the base of the vessel. NOTE: If the Acid Wash
system is plumbed, remove the hose to the shut-off valve from the base of the vessel. You can then open the valve to release the pool water.
4. Remove the Electrical Enclosure Cover
NEVER REMOVE THE VESSEL CAP WITHOUT FIRST UNPLUGGING THE CONTROLLER FROM ITS POWER SOURCE – DO NOT OPERATE THE UNIT WITH THE CAP
REMOVED - The vessel cap is removed by unscrewing the four mounting screws that hold the cap to the HydroRite vessel.
5. Remove the UV Lamp
To remove the lamp, grasp the lamp connector (at end of ballast cable) and rotate counter-clockwise (about 1/8 turn) to unlock the lamp from the vessel. Once
unlocked, slowly pull the lamp straight up and away from the quartz sleeve until it clears the vessel. DO NOT TOUCH THE UV LAMP WITH YOUR BARE HANDS!
Oils from your hands can attach to the lamp surface and create hot spots during operation and shorten lamp life. Use a soft clean cotton cloth (or cotton gloves)
to handle the lamp. Carefully place the lamp in a safe location.
NOTE: If you should touch the lamp with your bare hands, it can be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth and rubbing alcohol
6. Unscrew the Vessel Lock Nut
Grasp the two large “handles” on the vessel lock nut and fully unscrew (counterclockwise) the light engine.
Vessel Lock Nut

Pinch Stainless Steel
Baffle here to separate
from light engine
7. Pull the Light Engine out of the Vessel
Using the handles on the vessel lock nut, lift the light engine straight up and out of the vessel.
8. Remove the Stainless Steel Baffle
There is a stainless steel baffle that surrounds the quartz sleeve which must be removed. To
remove the baffle, pinch the end in three places while pulling it away from the light engine (see
adjacent diagram). Pinching the baffle at those points will flex the surface enough to “unhook” itself
from the light engine.

USE ONLY HAYWARD GENUINE REPLACEMENT PARTS
9. Cleaning the Quartz Sleeve
The quartz sleeve will now be exposed and can be cleaned. Note that the inside of the
glass sleeve is normally sealed and should never need cleaning. Carefully clean the
outside of the quartz sleeve using NON-ABRASIVE CLEANERS, as they can scratch the
high quality glass. If lime or hard water calcium deposits are encountered, rinse the quartz
sleeve with tap water, then clean with lime removal products such as Lime-A-Way® or a
Muriatic acid mixture as described on page 7. Use appropriate eye protection and gloves
when handling harsh chemicals. A lint free cloth can be used to help wipe away deposits. After using the lime removal products, rinse and wipe with the sleeve with Isopropyl
alcohol. Completely dry the sleeve before re-assembly.
Clean only the outside of
of the quartz sleeve
Carefully inspect the cleaned quartz sleeve for cracks. If any cracks in the quartz sleeve are found, the sleeve should be replaced. A broken quartz sleeve will
allow water to enter the dry electrical chamber and attack the electrical components of the unit, which will cause them to fail and need to be replaced. Dispose
of any broken glass in the proper waste receptacle. BROKEN QUARTZ SLEEVES, OR WATER DAMAGE CAUSED BY BROKEN QUARTZ SLEEVES, ARE NOT COVERED UNDER YOUR LIMITED WARRANTY.
10. Reinstall the Stainless Steel Baffle
The easiest way to reinstall the baffle is to place it end up on the ground and lower the light engine on top of it. Guide the baffle making sure that the 3 locking
tabs on the light engine line up with the 3 slots in the baffle. Gently push the light engine down until the baffle snaps into place.
11. Insert the Light Engine into the Vessel and Fasten with the Vessel Lock Nut
The light engine must be oriented in a certain position for it to fully insert into the vessel. Lower the light engine until the final 1” or so and look for the two slots
on the inside top of the vessel. Spin the light engine until the two keys line up with the slots. Now fully push the light engine down into the vessel and lock by
tightening the vessel lock nut.
12. Reinstall the UV lamp.
Slowly lower the lamp down into the quartz sleeve and twist clockwise to lock.
13. Reinstall the Vessel Cap
Place the vessel cap on the top of the HydroRite unit and tighten the screws using a Phillips screwdriver. DO NOT over tighten the screws due to risk of cracking the cover. Turn on the circulation pump, making sure to open any valves (if applicable) that were closed. Verify that there are no leaks before powering the
HydroRite.
Scheduled UV Lamp Replacement
In addition to cleaning of the quartz sleeve, periodic replacement of the UV lamp is required. The High Output UV lamp in your HydroRite unit is designed to last
for approximately 16,000 hours of continuous operation. If replacing the lamp, clean the quartz sleeve at the same time to minimize your maintenance efforts.
Winterizing
Your HydroRite unit can be damaged if not properly winterized. Ice formation inside the vessel can break the glass quartz sleeve, the UV lamp or the vessel itself.
Therefore, you must protect your HydroRite unit from freezing. Damage due to freezing, including the breakage of glass components, the vessel, or water damage to other components caused by freezing IS NOT COVERED under your Limited Warranty. During winterization, drain your UV device of all water within the vessel—use a Wet-Dry vacuum if necessary. Store the sleeve and lamp and all connectors in a manner to prevent breakage or corrosion during the winter months.
Freeze damage
Freeze damage can be avoided by keeping the water flowing at a minimum of 5 PSI pressure at all times, without interruption during freezing weather. All pump
timers must be inoperable and the pump must run continuously. Freeze damage can also be avoided if the pump and HydroRite unit are maintained inside a
climate controlled enclosure. If you do not plan to operate your HydroRite unit during freezing temperatures, you must take precautions to make sure all water is
removed from inside the HydroRite vessel so it does not freeze. This can be accomplished by first closing any valves on lines in the plumbing system and then
opening the inlet union at the bottom of the HydroRite unit so that the water can drain.
How To Obtain Service
In the event that service is required, contact your builder or dealer so they can advise the best method of providing the services you need. In some instances,
the supplier will handle the required service themselves, including the ability to supply any necessary parts. In other instances, the supplier will refer you to
Hayward, who can assist you as well. Please read the Limited Warranty in this manual for your HydroRite unit. It explains fully what is and what is not covered
under the Limited Warranty and the warranty periods.

USE ONLY HAYWARD GENUINE REPLACEMENT PARTS
FAQs
Q.
A.
Is HydroRite compatible with ALL Pool chemicals?
YES, except for a biguanide sanitizer. The strong oxidizing power of the HydroRite device will destroy the biguanide chemical, rendering the water a milky
white color.
Q.
A.
Is There Any Residual Effect From UV?
NO, UV light is applied only to the water while it passes through the HydroRite vessel. For this reason, a chemical sanitizer such as bromine or chlorine
is still required; however, the levels of these sanitizers can be reduced by as much as 75% over typical levels
Q.
A.
Is the HydroRite System Designed For Salt Water Use?
YES, all plastic components are compatible with pools equipped with Hayward Salt Chlorine Generator Systems. Over time, the stainless steel baffle can
be affected by a high salt environment but can be easily replaced if necessary.
Q.
A.
Do I Need To Turn HydroRite Off When I Clean My Filter?
NO, the flow sensing pressure switch that is part of your HydroRite unit will automatically shut the UV lamp off until proper water flow inside the HydroRite
vessel is re-established. Should you need to turn the HydroRite off, simply unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Q.
A.
Will A Time Clock On My Pool Shorten My Lamp Life?
NO, not unless the HydroRite is cycled on and off multiple times per day. A single ON/OFF cycle per day is normal and should give you optimum lamp
life (which is ~16,000 hours). Frequent on/off cycles should be avoided and for longer lamp life, allow at least 10 minutes rest before turning back on.
For best lamp efficiency, the lamp should be replaced on a yearly basis.
Q.
A.
Can the HydroRite Unit Be Mounted Horizontally?
NO, vertical mounting is required to maintain the proper flow dynamics inside the vessel for maximum exposure to the UV light. Also, the unit has been
designed for maximum weather integrity of the electronics when mounted vertically.
Q.
A.
Can Multiple Units Be Used Together For Larger Systems?
YES, you can add any number of HydroRite units to a manifold system to allow for larger outputs and flow rates beyond the capacity of a single HydroRite
unit. Contact Hayward to obtain a drawing showing the proper method of plumbing multiple HydroRites for larger applications.
Q.
A.
Is There Any Residual Effect From Ozone?
NO, the Ozone create by the HydroRite is injected into the plumbing in front of the vessel. After entering the HydroRite vessel, the UV light converts the
Ozone to Hydroxyl radicals in a process called Advanced Oxidation. The Hydroxyl radicals are very short lived sanitizers/oxidizers that are used up before
the water exits the HydroRite vessel.
Q.
A.
Do I Still Need Chlorine?
YES. HydoRite is a potent sanitizer and oxidizer but does not place a residual in the water. A residual (chlorine) is needed in the pool 24 hours per day
to prevent algae buildup.

Troubleshooting
The information below will help guide you through any problems you may have at time of initial installation or during operation. For additional assistance, contact
your supplier or Hayward.
The UV Lamp Will Not Light at Start-up
If this occurs upon initial start-up:
• Determine whether the Flow/Over Temperature/Interlock LED is lit. If so, resolve the issue.
• The lamp has become disconnected from the 4-pin connector. Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet, open the vessel cap and confirm the
lamp connector is firmly in place. At the same time, check all exposed wires for a possible loose connection. Plug the electrical cord back into the electrical
outlet ONLY after the electrical enclosure cover has been reinstalled on the unit.
• Verify that the power cord is plugged into a properly functioning electrical outlet. Test the electrical outlet and make sure the GFCI has not tripped. You should
confirm the availability of the same voltage as indicted on the electrical label on your HydroRite unit.
• Make sure you have not plugged your device into any power source other than that specified on your device’s electrical label. If you have done so in error,
the ballast has been damaged and needs to be replaced. Contact your supplier or Hayward for the correct replacement ballast. A replacement ballast is
not warranted.
The UV Lamp Is No Longer Lit
If this occurs after the unit has been operating successfully for a period of time:
• Determine whether the Flow/Over Temperature/Interlock LED is lit. If so, resolve the issue.
• The lamp has burned out. Replace the UV lamp.
• The ballast has burned out. Contact your supplier or Hayward for assistance in obtaining a new ballast.
• Verify that the electrical outlet where the device is plugged into has the proper voltage and the cord is securely plugged into the outlet.
• Verify that the GFCI has not tripped. To verify the operating state of the GFCI, trip the GFCI manually and reset it. The GFCI should reset. If it does not, it
indicates a fault to ground in the electrical circuit or the HydroRite unit itself. Call a certified electrician to fix the problem.
The HydroRite Unit Makes Noise When Operating
If an unusual noise is heard from the vessel:
• The HydroRite vessel is not properly attached to a firm mounting base.
• The HydroRite vessel bottom plate may be cracked or damaged.
There is Water under the Vessel Cap
Water in contact with the electrical connectors can cause damage. If this occurs:
• The quartz sleeve seal is bad.
• There is a broken or cracked quartz sleeve.
There are no visible bubbles in the vessel
Bubbles seen in the vessel are an indication that Ozone is being generated. If no bubbles are seen, check the following:
• Flow rate through the venturi is too low (below 35 gpm).
• Venturi tube is not properly installed or seated.
