heater product line.
ENGLISH
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal body temperature
reaches a level several degrees above the normal body
temperature of 98.6°F (37°C). Symptoms include
dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, lethargy, and an
increase in the internal body temperature. The effects of
hyperthermia include:
• Lack of awareness of impending hazard
• Failure to perceive heat
• Failure to recognize need to leave spa
• Physical inability to leave spa
• Fetal damage in pregnant women
• Unconsciousness resulting in a danger of drowning
1.3.2 Swimming Pool Energy Saving Tips
Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc., offers the following
recommendations to help conserve fuel and minimize
the cost of operating your pool heater without sacrificing
comfort.
1.
The American Red Cross® recommends a
maximum water temperature of 78°F (26°C). Use
an accurate pool thermometer. A difference of 4F°
(2°C), between 78°F and 82°F (26°C and 28°C),

ENGLISH
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
2.
Carefully monitor the water temperature of your
pool in the summertime. You can reduce heater
usage due to warmer air temperatures.
1.
3.
Find the proper setting on the pool heater
temperature control and use the Set Point Lockout
feature to discourage further adjustments.
In the United States, the National Fuel Gas Code,
NFPA® 54/ANSI Z223.1. Pay particular attention
to the chapter addressing Venting of Equipment.
2.
4.
Set the pump time clock to start the pump no
earlier than 6:00 AM during the pool heating
season. This is the time when nightly heat loss
balances.
5.
If the pool is only going to be used on weekends,
reduce the heater temperature control setting by 8
or 10 degrees during the week. Reset it to the 78°F
(25°C) level a day or so before you plan to use the
pool.
In Canada, the Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code, CAN/CSA-B149.1. Minimum
combustion air requirements MUST be
followed for proper and safe operation. The
Jandy Pro Series JXi heater may not operate
properly when installed with only the minimum
combustion air openings allowed in CAN/
CSA-B149.1.
6.
During the winter or when on vacation for longer
than a week, shut down the heater by following
the shutdown instructions found on the inside of
the heater.
7.
Where possible, shelter the pool from prevailing
winds with well-trimmed hedges or other
landscaping, cabanas, or fencing.
8.
Always use a pool cover when practical. Besides
providing a valuable safety feature, a pool cover
will reduce heat loss, conserve chemicals, and
reduce the load on filter systems.

as per the utility or Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
In the absence of local codes, refer to the latest edition of
the following national codes for installation:
The JXi pool and spa heaters meet or exceed the
requirements of energy conservation regulations, such as
those in California, Hawaii, New York, Oregon and other
states that have disallowed the use of continuously lit pilot
type ignition sources. In addition, the natural gas models
of this heater comply with the California South Coast Air
Quality Management District's (SCAQMD) Rule 1146.2
for Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions.
Any changes to the heater, gas controls, air orifice, gas
orifices, wiring, draft diverter, or improper installation
may void the warranty. If change is required to any of the
above, consult the factory.
1.6
General Operation Description
In the JXi heater, the blower draws air and fuel through
specially designed orifices for both air and gas, then
delivers the precise mixture to the burner located inside
the combustion chamber. The combustion chamber
is completely sealed and contains the heat exchanger,
which surrounds the burner. Once combustion gases pass
through the heat exchanger, the flow is directed through
an exhaust duct located on the side of the combustion
chamber, where it vents to the atmosphere.
1.7
Safety Controls
The JXi heater is equipped with the following safety
controls to protect internal components and prolong the
life of the heater.
Air Flow Switch
The air flow switch monitors the vacuum (negative
pressure) within the blower housing. The air flow switch
is factory set and the ignition module will not operate
unless the air pressure switch and all safety switches are
satisfied.
Water Pressure Switch
Operating the heater without sufficient water flow may
severely damage the heater. If water flow to the heater is
restricted, the water pressure switch prevents the burner
from firing. The control panel will display an error
message to indicate water flow is insufficient.
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
NOTE: If the heater is installed below the level of the pool,(or
more than two feet above the pool level), the pressure
switch setting must be adjusted. See Section 5.4
Adjusting the Water Pressure Switch for guidelines.
Water Temperature Control
All heater models are equipped with an electronic control
which senses water temperature by means of a thermistor
and controls heater operation to bring the water to the
temperature selected. It has an option for two (2) separate
thermostat settings which are typically used to set pool and
spa temperatures.
2.2
Section 2. Installation
Requirements
2.1Introduction
Install the JXi in accordance with the procedures in this
manual, local codes and ordinances, and in accordance
with the latest edition of the appropriate national code.
See Section 1.5 for certification codes and standards.
All gas-fired products require correct installation to assure
safe operation. The requirements for pool heaters include
the following:
•
Field assembly (if required)
•
Appropriate site location (clearances) and flooring
(see Section 2.6)
•
Sufficient combustion and ventilation air
•
Properly sized gas meter and piping
•
Proper electrical wiring (if required)
•
Adequate water flow
This manual provides the information needed to
meet these requirements. Review all applications and
installation procedures before continuing the installation.
See Section 2.7 for NOTE on operating the heater in areas
with below freezing conditions.
Page 5
Materials Installer Must Provide
For ALL Installations
• The correct size gas pipe to supply gas from gas meter to
heater (see Section 4.1).
• Gas shut-off valve to be installed in gas line outside of the
heater jacket.
• Manual gas shut off valve must be installed in an
accessible location, within 6’ upstream of heater.
• A suitable gas union joint to connect heater to gas line
outside of heater.
• Plumbing materials for providing sediment trap (drip leg)
in gas line between the manual gas valve and heater (see
Section 4.1).
Ignition Control
The ignition control provides energy for ignition of the air/
gas mixture, monitors the flame and controls the gas valve.
When the temperature control calls for heat, the ignition
control initiates the start-up process by first purging the
combustion chamber gases. The ignition control will
then energize the igniter and open the gas valve when
the igniter surface is sufficiently hot. During the start-up
process and after ignition, the ignition control system is
continually monitoring the flame condition. If the control
senses an unstable flame it will close the gas valve as a
safety precaution.
ENGLISH
• 120 VAC or 240 VAC power supply. (A junction box is not
needed at the heater; connections are made inside of the
heater jacket.)

1.
Gas Valve - The gas valve controls gas flow
into the burner. It enables flow only when the
temperature control requires heat and only if
all safety controls enable operation. It is also a
negative pressure regulator, where it maintains a
gas pressure of 0.2” WC below the the air pressure
at the blower inlet. It regulates the gas pressure to
0.2” WC less than the air pressure at the blower
inlet. This is necessary for proper operation of the
burner system and cannot be accomplished with
common (positive pressure) gas valves.
2.
Combustion Blower and Air Orifice – The
blower pulls air and fuel gas in through their
respective orifices and mixes the two gases before
forcing the fuel/air mixture through the burner
for combustion. During normal operation the fan
will turn on before flame initiation to ensure that
the combustion chamber is clear before the igniter
is energized. Additionally, the fan will run after
the flame is extinguished in order to clear the
combustion chamber of exhaust gas.
3.
Pool/Spa Water Temperature Control - The
JXi heater models are equipped with an electronic
control, which senses water temperature by means
of a thermistor and controls heater operation to
attain and maintain the water according to the
temperature selected. It has an option for two (2)
separate thermostat settings, which are typically
used to set pool and spa temperatures.
4.
Ignition Control - The ignition control provides
energy for ignition of the air/gas mixture, monitors
the flame and controls the gas valve. When the
temperature control calls for heat, the ignition
control provides a pre-purge of the combustion
chamber. Once the pre-purge is complete the
ignition control then applies electrical power to
a hot surface igniter. When the igniter attains
sufficient temperature, the ignition control opens
the gas valve. Immediately after ignition, the
control system will look for characteristics of a
stable flame and de-energize the igniter. If flame
is not detected shortly after opening the gas valve
the control system will close the valve to prevent
further gas release. The ignition control will
attempt to start 2 more times before an ignition
fault is displayed.
5.
Igniter - The hot-surface igniter is constructed of
a ceramic material that attains a temperature great
enough to ignite the air/fuel mixture, when an
electric current is applied.

High Altitude
•
Appliances are normally de-rated when installed at high
elevation. This is not necessary with the JXi heater
because it has a special venturi-type combustion system
which self-compensates for changes in barometric
pressure. Air flow through the blower inlet pulls the
correct flow of gas into the burner regardless of air
density. Proper combustion and high efficiency are
assured without special adjustment or changes to the
heater.
Heater Components
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
6.
7.
High Limit Switches - Two (2) limit switches one at the heat exchanger first pass (135°F/57°C)
and one at the heat exchanger outlet (150°F/65°C)
-- prevent water of excessive temperatures from
being discharged from the heater. If either switch
senses excessive temperature, the gas valve will
close and combustion will stop.
Water Pressure Switch - Operating the heater
without sufficient water flow may severely
damage the heater. This control senses whether or
not water is available to the heater by measuring
back pressure at the header inlet. If the pool
water pump fails or the water filter is blocked, the
pressure switch prevents operation of the burner.
The display will indicate a no flow fault to alert
you that water pressure is insufficient.
NOTE: If the heater is installed below the surface level of the
pool,(or more than two feet above the pool level), the
pressure switch setting must be adjusted. See section
5.4 Adjusting the Water Pressure Switch.
8.
9. Vent Temperature Limit (240°C/464°F)- This
is a single use switch, which detects abnormal
temperatures in the vent system. It is mounted
to the exhaust duct. Excessive temperatures
will cause the switch to open. Excessive
temperatures can be caused by inadequate water
flow or a compromised heat exchanger. The vent
temperature limit switch will open the safety
circuit which shuts off the gas valve and shuts
down the heater. If this limit is activated/tripped,
the heater cannot be safely operated without first
determining the cause and without replacing the
limit switch with an exact replacement.
Air Pressure Switch - The air pressure switch
monitors the vacuum (negative pressure) within
Page 7
ENGLISH
the blower housing. This switch verifies that air
is flowing through the combustion system by
sensing pressure. It shuts off the heater if air flow
is inadequate.
2.5Dimensions
See Figure 1 for exterior dimensions and dimensions to
critical connections.
2.6Clearances
In both indoor installations (US) and outdoor shelter
installations (Canada), the heater must be placed to
provide clearances on all sides for maintenance and
inspection, as well as maintain minimum distances from
combustible surfaces.
NOTE Clearances are manufacturer’s tested values. These

CAUTION
When pool equipment is located below the pool
surface, a leak from any component can cause large
scale water loss or flooding. Zodiac Pool Systems,
Inc., cannot be responsible for such water loss or
flooding or resulting damage.
Location of the heater below or above the pool water level
affects operation of its water pressure switch. See sections
on water piping and heater start-up for more information.
All criteria given in the following sections reflect
minimum clearances as stated in the national standards.
However, each installation must also be evaluated, taking

Combustion Air Supply
As outlined in the latest edition of ANSI® standard Z223.1
(NFPA® 54), the heater location must be properly vented
to provide sufficient air supply for proper combustion and
ventilation of the surrounding area.
In general, these requirements specify that the room in
which a heater is installed should be provided with two
permanent air supply openings:
•
one within 12 inches (305 mm) of the ceiling
•
one within 12 inches (305 mm) of the floor
All indoor installations must have openings to outside
air for combustion, ventilation, and dilution of flue
gases from inside the building. Do not, under any
circumstances, install this product in an indoor location
which does not provide combustion air to the appliance
from outside the building.
In addition, the heater must be completely isolated
and protected from any source of corrosive chemical
fumes such as those emitted by trichlorethylene,
perchloroethylene, chlorine, etc.
WARNING
Do not store any chemicals, cleaners, or other corrosive material near combustion air openings or in the
room. Avoid locating appliance vents in the vicinity of
combustion air openings. Failure to prevent corrosive
materials from mixing with combustion air can result in
reduced heater life and unsafe heater operation.
Minimum Net Free Open Area* for Combustion
Openings (square inches/centimeters)
*Area indicated is for one of two openings:
one 12 inches from floor level, one 12 inches from ceiling level.
Table 1. Air Openings to Outside
NOTE: If using screens and/or metal louvers, compensate by
adding 50% additional area to each opening. If using
wood louvers, each opening must be at least four
times the area indicated in the table above.
For special conditions, refer to Section 9.3.3.1 NFPA 54
ANSI Z223.
The information in Table 1 is not applicable in
installations where exhaust fans or blowers of any type are
used. Consult a Professional Engineer (P.E.) to ensure that
installations where exhaust fans or blowers are used are
designed and installed in accordance with all applicable
local and national installation codes.
Outside Air Supply: When combustion air is supplied
directly through an outside wall, each opening should
have a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 4,000
BTU/h (1.2kW) input of the total input rating of all
appliances in the enclosed area.
If air is provided through horizontal ducts, each opening
and duct must provide 1 square inch of flow area for
each 2000 BTU/h (0.6 kW). These requirements are
summarized in Table 1.
Exhaust Fans or Vents: Any equipment which exhausts
air from the room where the heater is installed can
deplete the combustion air supply or reverse the natural
draft action of the venting system. This could cause flue
products to accumulate in the room. Additional air must
be supplied to compensate for such exhaust.
The information in Table 1 is not applicable in
installations where exhaust fans or blowers of any type
are used. Such installations must be designed by a
Professional Engineer (P.E.).
3.2
Exhaust Venting
When converted to indoor and outdoor shelter venting
configuration, the JXi has a flue collar for attachment to
the venting for category I vertical venting and category
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
III vertical and horizontal venting. The only correct
procedure for vent pipe sizing is to do so in accordance
with Table 2 (Section 3.3.2 of this manual) and the
applicable installation code as stated in the following
warning and Table 13.1(a) and 13.1 (b) per NFPA 54
for category I and Table 3 for Category III.
WARNING
Vent pipe materials, sizing, and installation must be
as required by the National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/
ANSI Z223.1 or the Canadian Installation Codes for
Gas Appliances CAN/CSA-B149.1. Undersized pipe
can result in inadequate venting and oversize pipe
can result in vent condensation. Improper selection
of vent pipe material, incorrect sizing of the pipe, and
misinstallation of vent piping can result in release of
combustion products to the indoors. This can cause
serious injury or death by Carbon Monoxide poisoning
or asphyxiation.

Vent Pipe Sizing and Installation
The JXi may be installed with venting as a Category I or
Category III appliance.
•
•
A Category I appliance is a vented
appliance that operates with a non-positive vent static
pressure and with a vent gas temperature that avoids
excessive condensate production in the vent. Category
I installations are vented vertically and terminate at
the roof.
Category I:
A Category III appliance is a vented
appliance that operates with a positive vent static
pressure and with a vent gas temperature that avoids
excessive condensate production in the vent. Category
III installations can be vented via a side wall.
Category III:
In all installations (Category I and Category III):
•
Avoid terminating heater vents near air conditioning
or air supply fans. Fans can pick up exhaust flue
products from the heater and return them inside the
building, creating a possible carbon monoxide or
other health hazard.
•
Selection of vent pipe type and material must be
carefully considered depending on the type of
installation. Zodiac strongly recommends using high
quality vent pipe materials, which are corrosion

3.3.3 Vertical or Horizontal Venting
(Category III)
When the installation requires horizontal venting in excess
of what is allowed for Category I installations or calls
for horizontal discharge, the JXi may be installed with a
Category III venting system.
Vent the heater either vertically or horizontally
using Al29-4C® stainless steel components. Consult
manufacturers such as Z-Flex® or Heat Fab® to obtain
approved components. Venting materials must comply
with UL® 1738 for Category III, Special Gas Vent.
In Canada, the venting materials must be ULC S636
compliant. Vent piping must be adequately supported with
no low spots or sagging that could allow condensate to
collect.
1.
Install the vent connector or elbow
(see Section 3.3.1).
2.
The heater must not be used to support the vent pipe.
Horizontal runs must be sloped upwards away from the
heater to a vent terminal at a minimum of 1/4 inch per
horizontal foot (2 cm/m).
Install the vent pipe so it can expand and
contract freely with temperature changes. Before
connecting, wet a clean cloth or paper towel with
rubbing alcohol and wipe the socket of the vent
body.
3.
Follow installation instructions from the
manufacturer of the special gas vent components.
It is recommended that vent runs over 18 feet be insulated
to reduce condensation and/or use a condensate trap in
the vent run close to the heater, especially in certain cold
climate installations.
See Table 3 for recommended vent size and run lengths
without elbows. For each elbow installed, reduce the run
length by 12 feet (3.7m)
WARNING
Incorrect design and installation of heater vents and
ducts can result in personal injury, damage to property,
or death. To avoid such hazards, the heater must
be installed only by a qualified professional service
technician.
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
Precautions Against Common Venting:
Seek the assistance of a Registered Professional Engineer
for proper design of a common venting system.
Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. does not recommend using
a common vent to vent multiple appliances through a
common duct. However, if no other option is deemed
available by the installer, each appliance must have its
own vent temperature limit switch. All vent limit switches
must be wired in series so as to prevent any appliance
from firing in the event of a blocked vent. An outside
draft inducer must be installed to pull and create negative
pressure in the vent system. Refer to ANSI® Z223.1 or
in Canada CAN/CSA B149.1 for more information on
common venting multiple appliances. Do not connect
vent systems of different categories to the same venting
system.
WARNING
The JXi pool and spa heaters are designed for use
with either natural gas or LP gas. Check the rating
plate on the front of the combustion chamber to be
sure that the heater is designed to use the type of gas
being supplied. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONVERT
THIS HEATER FOR USE WITH ANY OTHER TYPE
OF FUEL OTHER THAN THE FUEL TYPE FOR
WHICH IT WAS CONFIGURED AT THE FACTORY
AND WHICH IS MARKED ON THE NAMEPLATE.
CAUTION
Permanent damage to the gas valve will occur if the
installation procedures are not followed correctly.
1.
Refer to Table 4 for correct gas inlet piping length
from the gas meter to the heater. When sizing gas
lines, calculate three (3) additional feet of straight
pipe for every elbow used.
WARNING
Improper installation or maintenance can cause nausea
or asphyxiation from carbon monoxide in flue gases
which could result in severe injury, or death. For indoor
installations, as an additional measure of safety, Zodiac
Pool Systems, Inc. strongly recommends installation
of suitable Carbon Monoxide detectors in the vicinity of
this appliance and in any adjacent occupied spaces.

Install Piping and Check Gas Supply
Gas piping installation must be in accordance with the
latest edition of ANSI Z223.1 and all local codes. In
Canada, the installation must be in accordance with CAN/
CSA B149.1 and all local codes that apply.
The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing the individual manual shut off valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressure equal to or less than 1/2 psi
(3.5kPa).
The heater and its individual shut off valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in
excess of 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa).
Numbers are for natural gas (0.65 Sp. Gr.) based on 1/2
inch (3.45 kPa) water column pressure drop. Check supply
pressure with a manometer, and local code requirements
for variations. For LP gas, reduce pipe diameter by one
size, but maintain a minimum 3/4 inch diameter.
Check supply pressure and local code requirements before
proceeding with installation.
Consider pipe fittings when determining gas pipe sizing.
Table shows the minimum supply gas pipe size required.
Larger pipe size can be used if required by local code or
if desired.
It is critical that the incoming gas supply pressure at the
heater is within the maximum and minimum pressure
requirements. If the range of acceptable supply pressure
is not provided, the gas supply system to the heater must
be modified to meet pressure requirements.
Table 4.
2.
Supply Gas Pipe Size Requirements*
Check the gas meter to make sure it will supply
enough gas to the heater and any other appliances
using the same heater.
NOTE: The gas line from the meter is usually larger than
the gas valve. Therefore, you will need to reduce
connecting pipe as necessary. Make this reduction as
close to the heater as possible.
3.
Install a manual gas shutoff valve for service and
safety.

Special Precautions for LP Gas
Under the same environmental conditions, liquid
propane (LP) gas is more dense than air and will more
readily collect in enclosed areas if there is not adequate
ventilation. It is not recommended to install LP gas
heaters in enclosed areas such as pits. Locate heaters a
safe distance from LP gas cylinders and filling equipment.
Consult the National Fuel Gas Code (NFPA® 54/ANSI®
Z223.1, latest edition), the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code
(NFPA 58, latest edition), the Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code in Canada (CAN/CSA B149.1, latest
edition), and any other local codes and fire protection
authorities about specific installation restrictions in your
area.
For ALL installations the combustion air openings
requirements and NFPA54 / ANSI Z223.1 MUST be
followed for safe and proper operation.

Any configuration other than as illustrated in Figure 12
can affect the operation of the water pressure switch.
Locating the heater above or below the pool water surface
can also affect operation of the switch.
NOTE: When pool equipment is located below the pool
surface, Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. is not responsible
for any large scale water loss, flooding or damage
caused by a leak.
The heater must be protected from back-siphoning of
water, which can result in dry starts. If there is any chance
of back-siphoning, provide a check valve between the
pool and the filter pump inlet.
5.2
Pump Sizing
The internal flow bypass within the heater manifold
will accommodate flows delivered to the heater from a
minimum of 30 gallons per minute (gpm) to a maximum
flow of 120 gpm, depending on the heater model. A
manual bypass valve should be installed when the pump
flow exceeds 120 gpm.
To install a manual bypass valve:
1.
Connect ball valve valve between water inlet and
outlet (Figure 13).
Heater

Figure 13. Install Manual Bypass Valve
IMPORTANT
The system water pump must be capable of providing
no less than 30 gpm of flow through the heater.
Flow rates at less than 30 gpm may cause nuisance
operation causing the heater to turn off or damage to
the heater.
2.
Adjust the valve to bring the flow rate within the
acceptable range (see Table 6).

Remove the valve handle to avoid tampering.
Pump Sizing for New Pool Construction:
When sizing a pump for the system, the head loss for
all system components must be added together when
determining the design flow rate. Component “Head
Loss at Flow” curves are available from equipment
manufacturers.
NOTE: In order to properly establish head loss at flow for a
filter, remember that a “dirty” filter can typically add 10
psi of additional head loss (23 extra feet of head). This
must be considered when sizing a pump for a new
pool system.
Pump Sizing for Replacement in an Existing Pool:
If the JXi heater replaces a different model of heater,
determine if the existing pump is capable of providing the
minimum flow of no less than 30 gpm indicated in Table
6 for the specific model. JXi heaters are high efficiency
heaters. Heaters typical of this construction may have
higher head loss characteristics than the one being
replaced.
IMPORTANT
Heater failure due to insufficient water flow is not

Plumbing Connections
The heater has a standard 2 inch water header and coupling
design. With this feature, only nominal two inch PVC
or CPVC may be connected to the heater. However, by
installing the appropriate pipe adapters and two (2) short
pieces of two-inch plastic pipe (supplied by the installer),
any size existing pipe may be fitted to the heater.
Optional Water Inlet Piping
The water inlet can be piped in one of two possible
configurations. The heater comes with a Zodiac®
Sweep Elbow for increased hydraulic performance and
efficiency. The sweep elbow also provides the advantage
of its exclusive interface with the Zodiac AquaLink® RS
temperature sensor. The sweep elbow may be installed in
the top inlet connection, and the cap and plug with O-ring
installed to close off the unused side port (see Figure 15).
This configuration may be preferred for Versa Plumb®
piping to mating components

WARNING
To avoid an electrical shock hazard, which can result
in serious injury or death, ensure that all electrical
power to the system is turned off before approaching, inspecting or troubleshooting any leaking valves
or plumbing that may have caused other electrical
devices in the surrounding area to get wet.
WARNING
Follow all filter manufacturer’s
instructions. NEVER attempt to
assemble, disassemble or adjust the
filter when there is pressurized air in
the system. Starting the pump while
there is any pressurized air in the
system can cause the filter lid to be
blown off, which can cause death,
serious personal injury or property
damage.
To install the Sweep Elbow:
1.
ENGLISH
Clean the cut ends of the pipe and both ends of
the sweep elbow(s) with an appropriate NSF®
approved All Purpose cleaner/primer. Glue the
sweep elbow(s) onto the cut pipe ends using an
appropriate All Purpose NSF approved adhesive/
glue.
NOTE Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. recommends Weld-On
The pressure switch is preset at the factory for activation
at 2 psi (14 kPa). If the heater is installed below the
surface level of the pool, more than two feet above the
pool level, or any time the pressure is measured at 1 psi
or greater with the system pump off the pressure switch
setting must be adjusted.
Location of the heater above or below the pool water
surface can also affect the operation of the switch. The
factory installed switch can accommodate elevations not
exceeding 6 feet above the pool water surface or 11 feet
below pool water surface. If the heater water connections
are outside this range Consult your local Zodiac
representative for recommendations.
Make sure the pool filter is clean before making any
pressure switch adjustment. A dirty filter will restrict the
water flow and the pressure switch cannot be adjusted
properly.
To adjust the water pressure switch:
NOTE: It is recommended that a Pressure Release Valve
(PRV) be installed prior to taking any of the steps
below. See section 5.7

6. Slowly turn the pressure switch adjustment
sprocket counterclockwise one-quarter turn. The
heater should come back on.
7.
Check the adjustment by turning the filter pump
OFF. The burners should shut off immediately.
If they do not, restart the filter pump and repeat
Steps 6 and 7. Check the adjustment again.
8.
Return the pool temperature control to the desired
temperature.
It may be necessary to repeat these steps to get a proper
setting. The switch must be set so that the heater will not
fire unless the pump is running. If a proper setting cannot
be reached, contact the factory service department.
5.5
Check Valve Installation
When any equipment is located below the surface of the
pool or spa, back-siphoning can occur, which is when the
pump stops and a pressure-suction differential is created.
Check valves should be installed in the piping system to
isolate the equipment from the pool or spa if there is any
chance of back-siphoning. Always install a check valve
if there is a chemical feeder installed in the system (see
Section 5.8).
Do not install any shutoff valve in the piping between
the heater outlet and the pool, unless it is being used as a
diverter valve. Always use care when installing chemical
feeders so that there is no back-siphoning of chemical
into the heater, filters, or pump. Make sure the feeder
Pressure Relief Valve Installation
A pressure relief valve (PRV) is recommended in all
installations, and is mandatory in any installation in which
the water flow can be restricted between the heater outlet
and the pool/spa.
A pressure relief valve is not supplied with the JXi heater.
However, it is recommended that a pressure relief valve
be installed and may even be required by local codes.
Be sure to check any applicable installation codes in
your area to determine whether a pressure relief valve is
required.
The maximum working pressure of this heater is 50 psi.
Be sure to take into consideration the maximum allowable
pressure of the other components in the system when
selecting a PRV. Any pressure relief valve installed must
comply with provisions of the standard described in
ANSI® Z21.22 for the United Sates or CSA 4.4 in Canada.
To install a pressure relief valve:
1.
Locate the threaded boss on the outlet port of the
in/out header (beside the “out” arrow). See Figure
18.
2.
Note the dimple at the center of the blind bottom
of the boss. Using the dimple to center the
drill bit, drill a 1/4" diameter hole through the
bottom of the boss, taking care not to damage
he surrounding plastic threads. (TIP: Drilling a
1/8" diameter hole first will help prevent thread
damage.)
WARNING
A check valve can interfere with the proper operation
of certain Suction Vacuum Release System (SVRS)
products. To avoid possible entrapment hazard,
serious injury, or death, make sure to review the
operation/owners manual of your particular SVRS
product before installing the check valve.
Reversing the Water Connections
WARNING
Drilling through plastic can often cause the drill bit to
‘grab’, causing the drill motor to twist in your hand.
Hold drill firmly to avoid potential injury.
NOTE: The fittings must be installed immediately after the
outlet with no valves or other components inbetween.
The pressure relief valve must be installed at the outlet
port. Do not install at either of the header inlet ports.
3.
Install a brass 3/8 NPT x 3/8 NPT x 3" long pipe
nipple into the boss, using 5 to 6 wraps of Teflon®
tape on the threaded end. Do not overtighten. See
Figure 18.
Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
CAUTION
Use Teflon® tape only on the threads of the pipe nipple
attachment to the plastic header. Do not use any pipe
compound or pipe dope on the threads or any part that
comes into contact with the plastic headers. These
compounds may damage the header over a period of
time.
ENGLISH
Page 21
NOTE: To ensure the continued proper operation of the
pressure relief valve, the valve should be tested once
a year. To test, lift the lever with the circulation system
running to ensure that water will pass through. When
the lever is down, there should be no leaks from the
outlet.
5.8
Auxiliary Components, Chlorinators,
Ozone Generators, and Sanitizing

Wrap 5 or 6 turns of Teflon tape on the end of
the pipe nipple and install a 3/8 NPT brass elbow
while holding the pipe nipple from rotating. Orient
the elbow to point straight up. See Figure 18.
Install a brass 3/4 NPT female to a 3/8 NPT male
pipe adapter to the elbow using 5-6 turns of Teflon
tape on the male end of the adapter. See Figure 18.
• When ozone is injected upstream of the heater,
install an offgas mixing chamber, or an ozone bypass
system between the heater and the ozone injector to
prevent ozone and air from entering the heater.
• When chemical feeders are used, plumb the feeder
downstream of the heater and install an in-line check
valve between the heater and the feeder (a minimum
of 18 inch is required between the heater and the
check valve).
• Wire any electrical chemical feeder so that it cannot
operate unless the filter pump is running. If the feeder
has an independent clock control, synchronize it with
the filter clock.
• Never deposit chemicals directly in the pool
skimmer.

WARNING
6.
Install the pressure relief valve on the elbow.
Use 5-6 turns of Teflon tape on the male end of
the valve. Install the pressure relief valve so it is
vertical. See Figure 18.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD. This heater contains
wiring that carries high voltage. Contact with these
wires may result in severe injury or death.
7.
Install a drain pipe from the pressure relief
valve outlet to a safe area. This is a precaution
to prevent the possibility of personal injury or
property damage in the event scalding water is
discharged from the pressure relief valve.
Install the drain pipe so that there is no trapped or
standing water in the piping. Drain piping must be
facing down, terminating with a threadless nipple,
no less than 6” from floor. It must be open with no
reducers or shut-off valves or other restrictions.

Section 7. Operating Instructions
7.1
First-Time Start-Up Procedure
WARNING
Vent pipes and heater tops get hot! These surfaces
can cause serious burns. Do not touch these surfaces
while the heater is in operation.
Do not use this heater if any part has been under
water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to
inspect the heater and replace any part of
the control system and any gas control which has
been under water.
Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut
off, turn off the manual gas control valve to the heater.
Do not attempt repairs on the gas controls or
appliance. Tampering is dangerous and voids all
warranties.
1.
Confirm that pool water is flowing normally
through the pool system and equipment.
2.
If it is a new pool or spa installation, operate the
filter pump with the heater off long enough to
completely clean the water. This will remove any
installation residue from the water.
3.
Clean the filter before starting the heater.
4.
Start the heater in either Pool or Spa mode (see
section 7.6, Operating the Heater).
5.
Start the heater (see section 7.2, Lighting the
Burner).
6.
ENGLISH
Page 27
When the heater starts, confirm there is adequate
water flow by touching the outlet header. The
header should not be hot. Normally, water
temperature will rise only a few degrees as it
passes through the heater, and a “hot” header or
pipe indicates low water flow.
If ignition is unsuccessful:
If ignition is unsuccessful, or the flame fails during normal
operation, the ignition control shuts off the gas valve.
The heater will then go through a post purge process and
attempt to establish stable combustion two additional
times. If ignition is unsuccessful after three attempts,
the system shuts down and will automatically attempt to
restart after one hour.
To reset the heater to provide three (3) attempts to start:
1.
Turn OFF the control then turn it back ON.
2.
Access either the Pool or Spa mode.
7.2
Starting the Heater
Follow the instructions outlined below to start the heater.

fire or explosion may result, causing property damage,
personal injury or loss of life.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Read Before You Start:
(A) This appliance does not have a pilot light. It
is equipped with an ignition device, which
automatically lights the heater. Do NOT try to
light the burners by hand.
(B) BEFORE OPERATING, smell all around the
appliance for gas. Be sure to smell next to the
floor because some gas is heavier than air and will
settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
- Do not try to light any appliance.
- Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any
phone in your building.
- Immediately call your gas supplier from a
neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s

is ON, the filter is clean and that water is flowing to
the pool. If the heater still does not operate, follow the
procedure below (Shut Down) to turn off gas supply to
the heater.
WARNING
When the heater is fired for the first time, the
combustion chamber refractory binder material is
driven out by the heat of the flame. White smoke and/
or sharp odors may be emitted from the vent during
this period. Do not inhale combustion product fumes
at any time, and especially when these fumes are
being emitted. This “burn-in” period will last only a few
minutes.
TO TURN OFF GAS TO THE HEATER
1.
Set temperature thermostat controls to their
lowest setting and turn off the controller. Make
sure the display shows GAS HEATER IS OFF.
2.
Turn off all electrical power to the heater at the
junction box.
3.
Remove the heater door.
4.
Turn the gas valve control switch to OFF.
5.
Shut off the external gas supply valve to the
heater.
6.
Replace the door panel.
7.3
Normal Operation
During normal operation, the control system measures
the temperature of the water flowing through the heater
and will begin the start-up process if the temperature is
below the set point. If the blower pressure switch senses
adequate airflow when the blower starts, the ignition
sequence begins. Following a pre purge, the igniter is
energized, then the gas valve opens. As long as a flame
is sensed at the burner, operation continues until the
temperature of the water entering the heater reaches the
temperature control setting.
7.4
Operating the Controller
Unless the heater is connected to a remote controller,
all operations are set up and programmed through the
control panel on the top of the heater (Figure 28).

Professional Service
and Maintenance
WARNING
SERVICING SAFETY
Service procedures can be hazardous because
they involve fuel gas, electricity, moving parts and
procedures which require testing or temporary bypass
of safety controls. For this reason, the heater must
be serviced only by a qualified professional service
technician.
IMPROPER SERVICE HAZARD
The heater incorporates unique design features.
Incorrect service of this heater can result in personal
injury or damage to property. To avoid such hazards,
the heater must be serviced only by a qualified professional service technician.
Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. strongly recommends that you
call a qualified service technician to perform all service
and repairs on the heater. To locate a licensed or qualified
technician or independent service company in your area,
contact Zodiac Technical Support at:
1-800-822-7933 (USA)
1-888-647-4004 (Canada), or
www.zodiacpoolsystems.com -Dealer Locator tab
Before servicing the heater:
•
Confirm that the heater control is set to either
POOL or SPA
•
Confirm the temperature set point for either Pool or
Spa is set high enough to make the heater operate
given the current water temperature.
10.1 Gas Pressure Offset Test
1.
Connect a tee to the hose from the fan inlet to the
gas valve vent port.
2.
Connect a shorter hose to the opposite side of the
tee to the gas valve vent port.
3.
Connect the third part of the tee with a hose to the
positive side of the manometer.
4.
Connect a second tee to the gas manifold pressure
port.
5.
Connect a short hose to the opposite side of the tee
to the gas manifold pressure port.
6.
Connect a hose between the third part of the tee to
the negative side of the manometer.
7.
Start the heater and record the gas offset pressure
with the heater running and the sealing cap firmly
in place.
8.
If the offset is incorrect, adjust the gas valve until
the correct pressure is obtained, see Table 5.
9.
Remove the tees and replace the hoses to the vent
port at the gas valve and the other hose to the gas
manifold port at the gas valve.
IMPORTANT MAINTENANCE NOTE
We recommend that before each pool session, the
Thermal Regulator Valve (TRV) be inspected for
proper operation and replaced if there are signs of
scaling or corrosion.
The TRV ensures the heater operates at it’s optimal
efficiency and if properly maintained will extend the life
of the heater.

Jandy® Pro Series, JXi™ Gas-Fired Pool & Spa Heater | Installation & Operation Manual
Water Chemistry
Proper Water Balance is the key to the enjoyment of your
pool or spa experience and to the long life of your heater.
The pH of your pool or spa’s water is one of the factors
that has the most impact on indicating how properly
balanced the water is. The other factors are: temperature,
total alkalinity, calcium hardness and total dissolved
solids. Cold water is typically more acidic (corrosive),
while hot water that is not properly balanced could lead
to a scale forming (basic) condition. While the heater is
in operation, if the PH is allowed to rise above 7.8 and
the calcium hardness and total alkalinity are not properly
maintained; calcium in the water could lose solubility,
coating the copper tubes inside the heat exchanger.
This will restrict the flow of water resulting in reduced
efficiency and possible damage to the heater.
If the pH is allowed to drop below 7.2, and the alkalinity
is not properly maintained, the water will become more
acidic. Acidic water has a tendency to dissolve metal
components in the pool plumbing with the copper heat
exchanger in the heater being a prime target.
PH, Total Alkalinity (TA), temperature, Calcium Hardness
and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) play a role in whether
the water is either corrosive or scale forming. These
factors are combined in the Langelier Saturation Index,
which is a method for determining whether or not water is
properly balanced. See Table 7 below.

A saturation index of 0 is perfectly balanced
A negative saturation index has corrosive tendencies
A positive saturation index has scaling tendencies
A saturation index of +0.3 or -0.3 should be used for visible,
cosmetic pool surfaces.
NOTE Acceptable “saturation Index” is between +0.5 and
-0.5. When dealing with a cosmetic surface the
index should be maintained between +0.3 and -0.3.
A positive value is more acceptable than a negative
value.
The practice of putting tablet-based sanitizers in the
skimmer basket can produce heavily chlorinated water
with very low pH in contact with metal parts of the heater
that can cause serious damage. Practices like this should
be discontinued and the use of floating sanitizer dispensers
and check valves as backflow preventers with inline
erosion-style feeders should be encouraged.
If acidic conditions are present, there could be signs of
metal in the pool water that could cause staining on the
floor of your pool. This might manifest itself in the form
of brown stains on the finish of your pool bottom or pool
water discoloration. Your local pool dealer can test for
metals in your water or can provide you with a test kit.
Every effort should be made to maintain the water balance
of your pool or spa in the proper range. Ignoring this very
important component of your pool’s water chemistry can
make the water less enjoyable to bathe in and result in
permanent damage to your heater and/or complete failure
of individual components.
Zodiac Pool Systems does not warrant heat exchangers
damaged by corrosive water issues or from the build-up
of calcium in the heater’s heat exchanger. Any questions
regarding proper water balance can be directed to our
product support line at Zodiac or to your local pool dealer.
NOTE: The Thermal Regulator Valve (TRV) is an indicator of
how well the water chemistry is being maintained.
The TRV Should be inspected before each
pool season to ensure it is clean and operating
properly. If you see signs of calcium buildup or
corrosion the TRV should be replaced and your
water balanced.
