2.2
Functional principle
Heat pump systems consist of separate circuits in which
liquids or gases transport the heat from the heat source
to the heating system. As these circuits operate with
differing media (brine/water, coolant and heating
water), they are coupled to one another by means of
heat exchangers. In these heat exchangers the heat
passes from a medium at a high temperature to a medium at a lower temperature.
The Vaillant geoTHERM heat pump is loaded with geothermal energy as its heat source.

Fig. 2.3 Principle of operation of the heat pump
Fig. 2.2 Using a geothermal heat source
The system consists of separate circuits which are coupled to one another by means of heat exchangers.
These circuits are:
- The heat source circuit, by means of which the energy
from the heat source is transported to the coolant circuit.
- The coolant circuit, which releases its heat to the
heating water circuit by means of evaporation, compression, liquefaction and expansion.
- The heating water circuit, which supplies the heating
and the hot water generation for the domestic hot
water cylinder.
The coolant circuit is connected by means of the evaporator (1) to the environmental heat source, from which it
extracts thermal energy. At the same time, the physical
state of the coolant changes; it evaporates. The coolant
circuit is connected by means of the condenser (3) to
the heating system, to which it releases the heat again.
In so doing, the coolant becomes liquid again; it condenses.
As thermal energy can only pass from a body at a higher temperature to a body at a lower temperature, the
coolant in the evaporator must have a lower temperature than the environmental heat source. On the other
hand, the temperature of the coolant in the condenser
must be higher than that of the heating water in order
to be able to release the heat to it.
6
Installation instructions for geoTHERM exclusive VWS 0020051614_00
Description of the appliance 2
These different temperatures are produced in the coolant circuit by means of a compressor (2) and an expansion valve (4), which are situated between the evaporator and the condenser. The coolant flows in vapour form
from the evaporator into the compressor, where it is
compressed. This causes the pressure and temperature
of the coolant vapour to rise sharply. After this process
it flows through the condenser, where it releases its
heat to the heating water by condensation. It flows as a
liquid to the expansion valve, where it expands significantly and in so doing loses much of its pressure and
temperature. This temperature is now lower than that
of the brine which flows through the evaporator. The
coolant can thus take up more heat in the evaporator,
turning into vapour in the process and flowing to the
compressor. The cycle starts again.
If required, the electric auxiliary heating can be
switched in by means of the integrated controller.
To prevent the formation of condensate in the interior
of the unit, the pipes of the heat source circuit and the
coolant circuit are insulated. Should condensate appear,
however, it is collected in a pan inside the unit (see
Fig. 2.7) and fed away underneath it. Drop formation
under the unit is thus possible.
2.3
Design of the heat pump
A 175 litre domestic hot water cylinder is integrated in
the geoTHERM exclusive heat pump. The Vaillant
geoTHERM heat pump is available in the types listed
below. The heat pumps are, above all, different from
each other in their output.

Table 2.2 Type summary
You can read the type designation of the heat pump
from the sticker (see Fig. 2.5, Item 1) on the pillar frame.
The heat pump is designed to implement all current
electrical supply tariffs.
The heat pump is dismantled into two modules in order
to ease transport to the site of installation (see also
chapter 4.10):
– the domestic hot water cylinder module (1)
– the heat pump module (2)
The Vaillant geoTHERM exclusive heat pumps are
equipped with an auxiliary cooling function in order to
provide for comfortable, cool room temperatures in the
living room at high outside temperatures during the
summer operation. For this purpose, additional components are necessary in the heat pump hydraulics: an
auxiliary intermediate heat exchanger, an additional
mixer valve and an auxiliary diverter valve. In the case
of Vaillant heat pumps with cooling functions, the principle of "passive" cooling is applied, in which heat is
transported via an underfloor heating from the rooms
to the ground without compressor operation and therefore, without cold circuit operation. The heating circuit
water, which is colder than the room temperature absorbs heat from the room and is pumped via the heat
circulation pump into the intermediate heat exchanger.
The brine pump also conveys the colder brine from the
ground into the heat exchanger which is operated in the
counter flow principle. In the process, the warmer heating return emits heat to the colder brine circuit, so that
the brine which is heated to some degree is guided
again to the floor. The annealed heating flow circulates
again through the circuit of the underfloor heating
where the water can reabsorb heat from the surroundings. Thus, the circuit can start over again.

General notes on operating modes and functions
There are five operating modes available for the heating
circuit and these can be used for time and temperature
control of the heat pump (see Chap. 8 "Control system").
There are a further three operating modes available for
the integrated domestic hot water cylinder.
During start-up, you will tell the heat pump which of the
connection configurations listed in the appendix corresponds to your installation by entering the number of
the corresponding hydraulic plan into the controller.
Thus all the operating parameters will be set to predetermined values, so that the heat pump can work optimally. However, you can individually set and adapt the
operating modes and functions afterwards.
You will find all the information on operating modes,
auxiliary and special functions in Chapter 8, "Control
system".
The heat pump is equipped with numerous automatic
auxiliary functions to ensure trouble-free operation
(see also Chap. 8.2 "Automatic auxiliary functions"):
– Frost protection
Prevents the heating system from freezing
– Tank frost protection
Prevents the connected tanks from freezing
– Checking the external sensors
Checking the connected sensors during initial commissioning using the basic hydraulic circuit that was entered previously
– Protection against loss of heating water
Shuts down when there is a loss of heating water and
switches on again when there is sufficient water pressure
- Protection against loss of brine
Shuts down if the brine pressure is too low and
switches on again when the pressure is sufficient
– Floor protection circuit
Overheating protection for the floor (important for
wooden floors)
– Pump blocking protection

a
Caution!
This appliance contains R 407 C coolant.
The coolant must not be allowed to escape into the atmosphere. R 407 C is a
fluorinated greenhouse gas covered by
the Kyoto Protocol, with a GWP of 1653
(GWP = Global Warming Potential).
Before the appliance is disposed of, the
coolant it contains must be completely
drained into a suitable vessel so that it
can then be recycled or disposed of in
accordance with the regulations.
The relevant work in connection with the
coolant may only be carried out by officially certified specialists.
Draining or filling with new coolant (see
identification plate for quantity) may
only be carried out via the service
valves. All warranties become void if any
approved replacement coolant other
than the R 407 C recommended by Vaillant is used.
a
Danger!
Danger of lack of tightness by using potassium carbonate as brine lotion!
Insertion of potassium carbonate/water
as brine lotion is not allowed because it
can amount to interactions with the installed seal synthetic materials in the
brine mixing valve.
Danger!
R 407 C coolant!
Do not inhale gases or vapours emanating from leaks in the coolant circuit.
Risk to health! Avoid contact with the
skin and eyes. Escaping coolant can
cause freezing if the exit point is
touched! R 407 C coolant presents no
danger in normal use and under normal
conditions. With improper use, however,
it can cause injury and damage.

4.2
Requirements of the installation site
Install the geoTEHRM heat pump with integrated domestic hot water cylinder in a suitable position in the building and at the same time, pay attention to the following:
– Choose a dry room that is generally frost-proof. A
frost protection thermostat must be installed if necessary.
– The floor must be level and sufficiently stable to be
able to bear the weight of the heat pump, together
with the DHW and possibly a buffer tank.
– Floor unevenness should be able to be levelled from
the adjustable feet of geoTHERM heat pump
– An appropriate water supply pipe can be connected
directly from the mains water stop valve of the building with the geoTHERM heat pump.
– It must be possible to install suitable pipe conduits
(for heat source, DHW and heating).
– The discharge pipe from the tundish must be installed
at a minimum slope of 1:200 and end at a safe and visible point, see section 4.7, "Requirements for the domestic hot water cylinder".
– There must be enough room for the assembly, checking and pressure build-up of the expansion vessel.
– When choosing the installation site, bear in mind that
when operating, the heat pump can transmit vibrations to the floor or nearby walls.
– In accordance with DIN EN 378 T1, the minimum size
of the installation space for heat pumps, (Vmin), is calculated as follows:
Vmin = G/c
G = coolant fill quantity in kg
c = practical limit in kg/m3
(for R 407C c = 0.31 kg/m3)
This yields the following minimum installation space:

geoTHERM exclusive VWS 0020051614_00 installation instructions
• Make sure that the substrate is sufficiently stable (see
Chap. 4.2 "Requirements for the installation site“).
• Make at least two bore holes, bearing in mind the dimensions of the unit and its connections (1).
• Each pipe from the heat source requires its own bore
hole.
• Special pipe fairleads must be used if there is a risk of
ground water penetration (follow the manufacturer's
instructions).
• Take account of the distances to the core barrels for
the rest of the installation.
• Pass the heat source pipes (2) from the outside into
the installation area.
• Lay the heat source pipes (2) centrally in the bore
holes (1) to facilitate all-round thermal insulation.
• Seal the annular gap (1) as shown with foam insulation
(e.g. PE foam) (3).
• Insulate the heat source pipes in cellar areas against
vapour diffusion, as condensation will otherwise accumulate (pipe temperature can be as low as -15 °C).

Requirements of the heating circuit
a
a
Caution!
Danger of falling below the dew point and
condensate formation!
All the pipes of the heating circuit must
be insulated leak-proof against vapour
diffusion.
Radiator heatings are not suitable for
the operation with a Vaillant heat pump
geoTHERM exclusive.
Caution!
Danger of falling below the dew point and
condensate formation!
The heating flow temperature must not
be set too low in the cooling mode. Adequate cooling function is also guaranteed
in a flowtemperature of 20 °C.
The heat pump is only suitable for connection to a
closed central heating installation. To ensure troublefree operation, the central heating installation must
have been installed by authorised specialists in compliance with the applicable regulations.
A heat pump is suited to low temperature heating systems. The system must therefore be designed for low
flow temperatures (ideally around 30 to 35 °C). Furthermore, it must be ensured that power company outages
are bridged over.
EN 12828 requires the following the heating system installation:
– a filling valve, in order to fill the heating system with
water or be able to drain the water,
– a diaphragm expansion vessel in the return line of the
heating circuit,
– an overpressure safety valve (opening pressure 3 bar)
with pressure gauge (safety group) in the flow line of
the heating circuit, immediately after the appliance,
– an air/dirt separator in the return line of the heating
circuit.
To avoid energy losses in accordance with the Energy
Saving Order (EnEV) and to protect against freezing, all
connection lines must be provided with thermal insulation.
The pipes must be dirt free - if necessary, flush them
thoroughly before filling.
16
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
Do not add any antifreeze or corrosion
protection agents to the heating water,
as seals and other components can be
damaged as a result and this can lead to
water leaks.
In hydraulic installations that are predominantly
equipped with thermostatically or electrically controlled
valves, it is necessary to ensure a constant, adequate
flow through the heat pump. Regardless of the choice of
heating system, the nominal flow rate of heating water
must be ensured.
4.7
Requirements for the domestic hot water
cylinder
4.7.1 Cold water pipe pressure
The performance of unvented domestic hot water cylinder depends on the available water pipe pressure and
the percolation rate. In order to attain the optimal
power of the integrated domestic hot water cylinder of
the geoTHERM heat pump, an appropriate cold water
pipe must be available, i.e. the measured static line
pressure must be at least 2.0 bar. A corresponding flow
rate of at least 20 - 25 l/min should be available.
h
Note!
The mains water pressure is reduced
during periods of high water consumption. Make sure that the measurements
are carried out this time.
Example:
The available percolation rate of mixed water of 40 °C
is 25 l/ min (15 l/min hot water of 60 °C from the domestic hot water cylinder with 10 l/min cold water of
10 °C) if the measured static cold water line pressure is
2 bar and the available percolation rate is 30 l/min.
The domestic hot water cylinder operates satisfactorily
as well during a water line pressure below 2 bar, but at
a reduced percolation rate. The unvented domestic hot
water cylinder should not be installed if the water line
pressure is below 1 bar. You can obtain information on
alternative hot water supply systems from Vaillant Ltd.
To keep the friction losses at a minimum, a minimum diameter of 22 mm is recommended for the cold water
pipe in the building; however, a satisfactory power can
still be obtained with a 15 mm line.

4.7.2
• Install the assembled safety group in the cold water
pipe in a suitable location next to the domestic hot
water cylinder. Make sure there is sufficient space for
maintenance and the connection of the discharge pipe
from the expansion relief valve.
If the discharge pipes are all together, the expansion relief valve may not be installed more than 500 mm away
from the temperature and pressure compensating valve.

• When installing the valves, make sure they are aligned
in such a way that the 15 mm connection of the expansion relief valve (figure 4.5) can be connected to the
tundish.
• Install the discharge pipe of the expansion relief valve
(figure 4.4) with a constant outward inclination. The
drain pipe must end in a safe and visible point where
there is no risk of freezing.
a
Caution!
Risk of bursts for the domestic hot
water cylinder due to overpressure!
The outlet of the expansion relief valve
may not be covered or closed.
• Control the expansion relief valve (figure 4.4 item 1)
regularly to avoid calcification.
• Connect the domestic hot water cylinder to the cylinder connection (figure 4.4 item B).
To ensure an optimum performance of the domestic hot
water cylinder, especially during installations in which
the pressure-controlled cold water connection (figure 4.4 item B) is used, copper pipes with a diameter of
at least 22 mm should be used for the pipe from the
main stop valve of the building to the domestic hot
water cylinder.
• Install the drain valve in the cold water pipe at the
lowest point between the domestic hot water cylinder
and the safety group
geoTHERM exclusive VWS 0020051614_00 installation instructions
a
Caution!
Danger of bursting for the domestic hot
water cylinder!
No stop valve should be installed between the safety group and the cylinder.
The Vaillant geoTHERM heat pump with integrated domestic hot water cylinder is supplied with an external
hot water expansion vessel (ADG).
Connect this expansion vessel to the installed safety assembly as follows:
• Bolt the expansion vessel via the connection intended
for this purpose (figure 4.4 item 3) directly onto the
safety group or
• Connect the expansion vessel to the water control
pack with a copper pipe or an appropriate hose. Make
sure the expansion vessel is supported sufficiently.
Use the supplied mounting bracket if the expansion vessel is to be mounted on the wall.
• Establish (if necessary) the connection to the cold
water connection with pressure compensation of the
safety group (figure 4.4 item B).
h
Note!
In areas with high water pressure (4 bar
or more), a bath or shower mixer valve
can also be connected to the balanced
pressure cold water connection (figure
4.4 item 5) of the safety group. This is
to ensure that the pressure of the hot
and cold water supply to the mixer valve
is about the same. The cold water supply
for all other connections should be installed by means of a T piece to the domestic hot water cylinder in front of the
safety group in the cold water pipe.
17
4 Assembly and installation
4.7.3 Lines for primary circuit
The lines for the primary circuit of the Vaillant heat
pump geoTHERM to the domestic hot water cylinder uniSTOR should be made of copper and should have a minimum diameter of 22 mm.
Lines with bigger diameters must possibly be used if the
distance between the heat pump and the cylinder is too
big. It is not necessary to design a circulation pump for
these lines because the Vaillant is equipped with heat
pump via an integrated circulation pump.
4.7.4 Laying of the discharge pipes
The discharge connections of the temperature/pressure
compensation valve as well as of the safety valve must
be connected via 15 mm copper pipes with the supplied
drain hopper. The tundish should be installed vertically
as close to the appliance as possible and within 500 mm
of the temperature and pressure relief outlet. It must be
positioned away from any electricl components an dinstalled in the same space as the geoTHERM eclusive, so
that it is vislible to the user. The discharge pipe from
the temperature-/pressure compensation valve and
from the safety valve can be joined via a T piece above
the tundish.
The drain pipe from the 22-mm connection of the
tundish must be laid to a safe and visible outlet with
copper pipe with at least 22 mm diameter.
A vertical line section which is at least 300 mm long
must be below the tundish, before the line reaches a
curve. If the total drag of the drain pipe exceeds the values specified in table 4.2 below, the line diameter must
be increased. During the installation of the drain pipe,
the G3 specification must be observed.
The cylinder relief valve connections should not to be
used for any other purpose.

Danger!
Danger of scalding by withdrawing
water!
Make sure the discharge pipe ends at a
safe point inside or outside the building
(safe and visible), where there is no risk
of anyone coming in contact with hot
water.
A suitable point is, for example, under a fixed grating
above the trap of a trapped gully. Low discharge pipes,
for example up to 100 mm above external surfaces, such
as car and other parking spaces, grasslands etc., can be
used, provided they are secured by a wire fence or
something similar to prevent children from coming in
contact with the waste water, and as long as the system
is not visible. No valves or taps may be installed in the
discharge pipe.
• Make sure that the drain pipe from the tundish to the
drain has a steady gap of at least 1:200.
The discharge pipe from the pressure compensation
valve of Vaillant gas fired wall hung boiler can be connected per T piece to the horizontal discharge pipe of
the domestic hot water cylinder.
4.7.5 High discharge point
The method illustrated in Fig. 4.6 is allowed, provided
no-one inside or outside the building is endangered by
the discharge point. The following points, for example,
should be taken into consideration for the decision on
whether a place is suitable as high discharge point:
– Possibility (considering the impact of wind), that
somebody is in the range of water that is flowing out
and if this is the case, whether the water is already
cooled down enough such that no danger is posed.
The thermal conductivity of the surface, the climatic
conditions and the location and alignment of the discharge pipe may under certain circumstances have an
effect on the cooling down of the outflowing water
– The structure of the windows and other apertures.
– The likelihood that a baby carriage could be parked
beneath the drain.
– Resistance of the surface area against hot water.
– Possibility of ice formation if water is discharged on
the footpaths.

a
Caution!
Material damage resulting from escaping
brine!
The screw couplings on the brine expansion tank must be sealed with hemp.
Sealing with, e.g., seal can lead to leakage in the brine circuit.
• Fit the bracket for the brine expansion tank to the
wall using the wall plug and the screw.
• Unfasten the pre-assembled connection pieces from
the brine expansion tank (57).
• Wind hemp into the outer threads of the connection
pieces.
• Fit the first connection piece to the 3 bar expansion
relief valve (42a) enclosed with the heat pump.
• Using the second connection piece, fit the brine expansion tank (57) from the accessory kit to the pipe
(1) running from the heat source to the heat pump.
• Fix the brine expansion tank with the bracket.
• Fit the connection piece with the expansion relief
valve to the brine expansion tank.
• Fit the brine collecting tank (65) to the expansion relief valve (42a) at zero pressure.
The brine collecting tank must not be completely
closed, as otherwise the functioning of the expansion
relief valve is not guaranteed.
• Provide all the pipes with vapour-proof thermal insulation. The accessory kit contains the insulating mat
provided for the thermal insulation of the connection
plate.

Fitting the VRC DCF outside temperature
sensor
Fit the sensor in accordance with the enclosed installation instructions.
4.15
Fitting the VR 90 remote control unit
If you install several heating circuits, you can connect a
separate VR 90 remote control unit for each of the first
eight of them. It allows the operating mode and target
room temperature to be set, and takes into account the
actual room temperature measured by the built-in room
sensor, if necessary.
It is also possible to adjust the parameters for the associated heating circuit (timer programme, heating curve
etc.) and to select the special functions (party, etc.).
In addition, it is possible to query the heating circuit and
to display service and fault messages.
For assembly of the VR 90 remote control unit, see its
enclosed installation instructions. Regarding installation
see Chapter 6.8.1.
4.16
Installing the VR 60 mixer module
With the mixer module, you can expand the control system of the heating installation by two mixer circuits.
You can connect a maximum of six mixer modules.
A unique bus address is set on the mixer module by
means of a rotary switch. The setting of the heating
programme and all the required parameters is carried
out from the operating console. All heating circuit connections (sensors and pumps) are made directly on the
mixer module using a ProE plug.
For assembly of the VR 60 mixer module, see its enclosed installation instructions. Regarding installation
see Chapter 6.8.2.

Note!
The heat pump cladding sections are
only fitted after the filling and subsequent bleeding of the heating circuit.
Filling the heating circuit
a
Caution!
Malfunction!
Fill the heating circuit via the integrated
filling and draining valve, so that the
heating circuit is completely bled.
Pay attention that the 3 way valves are
upright in the mid position.
• Turn on all the thermostatic valves in the heating
system.
• Connect a filling hose to a water tap.
• Fasten the free end of the filling hose to the charging
and discharging valve of the heating circuit (fig. 5.1,
item. 1).
• Pressure the white change lever (3) on the motor
head of the 3-port diverter valve cooling system (2)
until it engages in its mid position.
You must now bring the 3-port diverter valve cooling
system (2) back to the original position. This is how to
do it:
• Remove the power cable on the motor housing of the
diverter valve (5).
• Detaching the motor housing (see fig. 5.2):
1. Push in the safety lever
2. Turn the motor housing around 45°
3. Detaching the motor housing
so that the spring in the valve body changes again to
the initial condition.
• Turn on the motor housing on the valve body again
and connect the power cable again.
The position of the white switch on the motor housing
of the 3-port diverter valve cooling system must now be
in the original position (fig. 5.1, item. 4).

Thus, both channels are opened and the filling process
is enhanced because existing air can be discharged from
the system.
• Open the filling and discharge valve of the heating circuit (1).
• Turn the water tap on slowly and fill with water until
the pressure gauge indicates a system pressure of approx. 1.5 bar.
• Shut off the filling and discharge valve of the heating
circuit (1) and unscrew the filling hose.
• Bleed the system again at the points provided.
• Re-check the water pressure in the system (repeat the
filling process if necessary).

Caution!
Danger of lack of tightness by using potassium carbonate as brine lotion!
Insertion of potassium carbonate/water
as brine lotion is in contrast to the units
without cooling function not allowed because it amounts to interactions with
the integrated seal synthetic materials
in the mixing valve.
a
Caution!
Environmental hazard!
Leakage of brine media must not result
in any contamination of the ground
water or the soil. Substances must be
selected that are non-toxic and biologically degradable.

Filling of the brine circuit
The brine fluid consists of water mixed with a heat
transfer fluid concentrate. As an additive we recommend propylene glycol (alternative: ethylene glycol)
with corrosion-inhibiting additives. A DN 40 collector
hose has a capacity of approx. 1 litre per continuous
metre.
The brine fluids that may be used differ greatly from region to region. Please find out about this from the authorities responsible.
Vaillant only approves of operating the heat pump with
the following brine media:
– max. 30 % ethylene glycol/water
– max. 33 % propylene glycol/water
– max. 60 % ethanol/water

Filling the heating and heat source systems 5
To fill the brine circuit, proceed as follows:
• Mix the antifreeze used by Vaillant in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, 1.2 % propylene glycol, with
water in the proportion 1 : 2.
This offers frost protection down to -15 °C.
• Mix water and antifreeze to the specified concentration in an external container (e.g. plastic canister, see
Fig.5.3, Item. 66). Every batch of the mixture must be
carefully blended.
• Check the mixing proportions of the brine fluid. Vaillant recommends the use of a refractometer for this
purpose.
• Then fill the brine mixture from the container (66)
into the heat source system. This will require a filling
pump (67) that simultaneously bleeds the collector
circuit as it fills it. Vaillant recommends the Vaillant
filling pump (product no. 307 093). Connect the pressure line on the pump to stop valve (62).
• Close stop valve (57).
• Open stop valves (62) and (64).
• Open stop valve (61) and connect a hose to it, with the
other end of the hose draining into the glycol mixture.
• Start the filling pump (67) in order to fill the collector
hose.
• Allow the filling pump (67) to run until fluid free of air
emerges from the hose connected to stop valve (61).
For a better filling and ventilation of the hydraulic pipe
of the cooling function on the brine side, it is expedient
to push in the pin of the brine mixing valve manually
around 50 %. Thus, both channels are opened so that
existing air in the system can be discharged. At the
same time leave the filling pump to run.
To be able to push in the pin of the brine mixing
valve manually, do as follows:

5 Filling the heating and heat source systems
Check the filling level of the brine fluid
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
The filling level is correct when the brine
expansion tank is 2/3 full. The installation can be damaged if the filling level is
too high.
• Top up the brine fluid when the filling level has fallen
so low that it is no longer visible in the expansion
tank.
Fig. 5.6 pushing in the valve pin

• Now, push in the valve pin at approx. 50 % of the
spring deflexion and hold onto this position for approx. 30 seconds. During this time, brine flows into the
two diverging hydraulic pipes
In order to overcome the spring pressure, a fixed object,
for example, a log of wood is helpful.
• Release the pin after about 30 seconds.
• Reattach the motor housing on the brine mixing valve.
• Reconnect the power cable that was disconnected before to the motor housing of the brine mixing valve.
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
Do not adjust the brine mixing valve position manually via the motor head because after unscrewing and reinstalling
it, this does not reposition automatically
into the initial condition!
• Open the stop valve (see fig. 5.3, item. 57), so that the
air between the stop valves (61) and (62) can be discharged.
• Close the stop valve (61) and pressurise the brine circuit using the filling pump (67). Take care that the
pressure does not exceed 3 bar.
• Now, close the stop valve (62) as well.
• Switch off the filling pump (67) and remove the
charging and discharging hose of the brine circuit
• Open the expansion relief valve (60) to allow any possible overpressure to discharge. The brine expansion
tank (59) must be filled 2/3 with fluid. Make sure that
valve (61) is closed.
• Further ventilation takes place after the assembly of
the cladding sections and the start up of the heat
pump (see Chap. 7.4)
Possible residues of the brine fluid are preserved in a
suitable vessel (e.g. plastic canister for a later refilling
(and conveyed to the customer)
30
Fig. 5.7 Fill level of the brine expansion tank
The filling level of the brine fluid can fall a little in the
first month following commissioning of the system; this
is quite normal. The filling level can also vary depending
on the temperature of the heat source, but under no circumstances should it fall so far that it is no longer visible in the expansion tank.
5.3
Filling the DHW ciruit
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
Do not manually open the temperature
and pressure relief valve or expansion
relif valve for venting purposes (any foreign matter in the pipwork may cause
damage to the valve seats).
• Ensure that the drain valve is closed.
• Open all hot and cold water taps.
• Open the mains water supply and continue filling until
water runs freely out from the taps.
• Close the hot and cold water taps and check for any
leaks.
• Open the hot water taps at the opposite ends of the
system and allow water to discharge to drain for at
least 5 minutes

Safety and installation information
e
Danger!
Risk of electric shock!
Always switch off the power supply before carrying out any electrical installation work. Make sure that they are secured against inadvertent switching on
again.
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
The electrical connection must be
equipped with a customer-supplied isolation device having a contact separation
of at least 3 mm on all lines (e.g. a line
protection switch).
Furthermore, take note:
– For electric power supply, connect the heat pump
onto the 230-V power mains. Fuse this connection as
specified in the technical data.
– Install the heat pump with a fixed mains connection.
– The required conductor cross sections must be determined by a qualified technician, using the values specified in the technical data for the maximum rated output. In any case, take into account the on-site installation conditions.
– If the local power company stipulates that the heat
pump should be controlled by a blocking signal, fit an
appropriate contact switch, as specified by the power
company, and connect it to the heat pump with a twocore cable.
It makes sense to fit this isolation device in the immediate vicinity of the heat pump.
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
The electrical installation may only be
undertaken by an authorised engineer.
a
Caution!
Risk of short circuits!
When connecting conductors carrying
230 V to the ProE plug, do not strip the
insulation back by more than 30 mm for
safety reasons.
If you strip back by more than this,
there is a risk of short circuits to the
PCB if the conductors are not correctly
attached in the plug.
a
Caution!
Risk of malfunction!
The lines for the outside temperature
sensor and the room thermostat carry
small, weak currents. Interference from
the environment can have an effect on
the sensor lines and transmit incorrect
information to the heat pump controller,
and for this reason the sensor lines
must be run absolutely correctly.
Low current lines must be run at an adequate distance from high current lines. If
low and high current lines are run in parallel, a minimum distance of 25 cm applies for lengths greater than 10 m.

You can activate the stop valves to the heating circuits
which should be excluded from the cooling operation
(e.g. bath) via the connection terminal "SK2-P" (see
Fig. 6.7, item 4).
6.6.1 Connecting the VR 10 standard sensor
Additional sensors are required as flow, return, collector
or cylinder sensors, depending on the configuration of
the system. The VR 10 standard sensor is so designed
that it can be used as an immersion sensor, e.g. as a cylinder sensor in a cylinder sensor tube, or as a flow sensor in a hydraulic switch. Using the enclosed cable tie
you can also attach it as a contact sensor to the heating
flow or return pipes. We recommend that the pipe together with the sensor be insulated to ensure optimum
temperature measurement.

6.6.3 Direct heating operation (Hydraulic plan 6)
The heat pump is connected directly to the underfloor
heating circuit. Control is carried out using energy balance control by default (see Chap. 8.4.2). To do this, the
VF 2 flow temperature sensor must be connected (floor
protection circuit).
Furthermore, the heat pump actuates the internal domestic hot water cylinder.
Note!
If hydraulic decoupling of the heating
circuit is necessary, then fit a low loss
header as well as an external heating
circuit pump.

Mixer circuit with buffer cylinder (Hydraulic
plan 8)
The unregulated underfloor heating circuits are operated by the external heating circuit pump from the buffer
cylinder via a mixer. The flow temperature sensor sits
behind the external pump. The heat pump responds to a
demand for heat from the buffer cylinder.
Furthermore, the heat pump actuates the internal domestic hot water cylinder.
a
Caution!
Error function in cooling mode!
The buffer cylinder must not be in operation during the cooling mode of the heat
pump.
Insert a motor-powered 3 way valve in
the flow and return respectively, so that
the buffer cylinder is bypassed in the
cooling mode.

Connecting accessories
a
Caution!
Risk of damage!
Switch off the power before connecting
additional units to the eBUS.
You can connect the following accessories:
– Up to six VR 60 mixer modules to expand the system
by system circuits (factory pre-set as mixer circuits).
– Up to eight VR 90 remote control units to control the
first eight heating circuits.
– vrnetDIALOG 840/2 or 860/2
– Connection in each case to the eBUS terminal
(Fig. 6.7, Item 11), connected in parallel.
6.8.1 Installing the VR 90 remote control unit
The VR 90 remote control units communicate with the
heating controller via the eBus. You can connect them
to any interface in the system. You need only make sure
that the bus interfaces are connected to the heat pump
controller.
The structure of the Vaillant system allows you to run
the eBus from component to component (see Fig. 6.13).
Interchanging the cables does not lead to any impairment in communication.
All eBus connector plugs are designed to allow you to
wire at least 2 x 0.75 mm2 per pigtail.
The use of cable with a cross-section of 2 x 0.75 mm2 is
therefore recommended for eBUS cables.
Setting the bus address
In order to ensure perfect communication between all
components it is necessary to provide the remote control unit with an address that matches the heating circuit to be controlled.
• Set the bus address on the first additional VR 90 remote control unit to "2".
• Set different, sequential bus addresses for any further
remote control units. Take note of the VR 90 installation manual.

Controller
To operate the heat pump economically, it is important
to match the control system to the customer's heating
system and to the pattern of use.
In the following chapter, all the functions of the weather-controlled energy balance controller will be explained.
8.1
Operating modes and functions
There are five operating modes available for the heating
circuit:
– Auto: the operation of the heating circuit alternates
between the "Heating" and "Energy saving" modes in
accordance with a preset timer programme.
– Eco: the operation of the heating circuit alternates
between the "Heating" and "Off" modes in accordance
with a preset timer programme. The heating circuit is
switched off during the set-back period provided the
frost protection function (which depends on the outside temperature) is not activated.
- Energy saving: the heating circuit is operated at the
set-back temperature independently of any preset
timer programme.
– Heating: the heating circuit is operated at the flow
temperature setpoint independently of any preset
timer programme.
– Off: the heating circuit is out of operation, provided
that the frost protection function (which depends on
the external temperature) is not activated.
The "Auto", "On and "Off" operating modes are available for connected domestic hot water cylinders:
– Auto: the commands for recharging the cylinder or
enabling the circulating pump are given according to a
preset timer programme.
– On: recharging is constantly enabled, i.e. the cylinder
is immediately re-heated when needed, and the circulating pump is constantly in operation.
– Off: the cylinder is not heated and the circulation
pump is not in operation. Only when the storage tank
temperature falls below 10 °C is the storage tank reheated to 15 °C for frost protection reasons.
8.2
Automatic auxiliary functions
Frost protection
The controller is equipped with a frost protection function. This function ensures that your heating installation
is protected from frost in all operating modes.
The set-back temperature is pre-set automatically
for each heating circuit if the outside temperature
falls below 3 °C.
"Off" and "Auto" operating modes, regardless of the
timer programmes.
Checking the external sensors
The hydraulic basic circuit given by you during commissioning determines the required sensors. The heat pump
constantly checks automatically that all sensors are installed and functioning.
Protection from loss of heating water
An analogue pressure sensor monitors possible low
water pressure and switches the heat pump off if the
water pressure on the pressure gauge reads less than
0.5 bar and switches it back on when the water pressure is over 0.7 bar on the pressure gauge.
Pump seizing and valve seizing protection
To prevent the heating, circulation or brine pumps, or
the hot water diverter valve UV1, from seizing, those
pumps and the valve that have not been in operation for
the last 24 hours are turned on in sequence for approximately 20 seconds every day.
Protection against loss of brine
An analogue pressure sensor monitors possible low
brine pressure and switches the heat pump off if the
brine pressure is ever less than 0.2 bar on the pressure
gauge and error 91 is displayed on the error memory.
The heat pump switches on again when the brine pressure rises above 0.4 bar gauge pressure.
If the brine pressure drops below 0.6 bar on the pressure gauge for more than one minute a warning appears
1.
in menu
Floor protection circuit for all hydraulics without
buffer cylinder (in hydraulic plan 6)
If the heating flow temperature in the underfloor heating circuit measured by sensor VF2 continuously exceeds a value of (max. HK temp. + compressor hysteresis + 2 K, default setting: 52 °C) for longer than 15 minutes, the heat pump switches off with error message
F.72 (see Chap. 10.6). When the heating flow temperature falls below this value again and the error has been
reset the heat pump switches back on.
The maximum heating flow temperature can be changed
via vrDIALOG with the "Maximum heating circuit temperature" parameter.
a
Caution!
Danger of damage to the floor.
Set the value for the floor protection circuit ensuring that it is not high enough
to damage the floor as a result of excessively high temperatures.
Cylinder frost protection
This function starts automatically when the actual temperature of the cylinder falls below 10 °C. The cylinder is
then heated to 15 °C. This function is also active in the
geoTHERM exclusive VWS 0020051614_00 installation instructions
49
8 Controller
Freezing protection function
The outlet temperature of the heat source is constantly
measured. If the heat source outlet temperature falls
below a defined value, the compressor switches off temporarily with error message 20 or 21 (see Chap. 10.4). If
these errors appear three times in succession, a fault-induced shutdown takes place (see Chap. 10.5).
For the geoTHERM VWS heat pumps you can set the
value (Default setting -10 °C) for the freezing protection
in the installation assistant A4.
8.3
Settable auxiliary functions
You can set the following auxiliary functions from the
controller yourself and thus adapt the system to local
circumstances or the operator's wishes.
h

If you do not wish to carry out the drying with the specified temperatures and/or times, you can specify variable flow temperature setpoints by means of fixed value
controlling (see following section). When doing this, take
note of the applicable compressor hysteresis (settable
via vrDIALOG, see Chap. 8.10).
Legionella protect
The purpose of the "Legionella protect" function is to
kill off germs in the DHW tank and in the pipes.
Once a week, the domestic hot water cylinder is raised
to a temperature of approx. 70 °C.
The expert technician activates the "Legionella protect"
function in the Code level and there can set a starting
time and a starting day (weekday) on which the heating
is to take place (see Table 8.4, Menu C9).
Remote parameter setting/alerting/diagnostics
It is possible to diagnose and adjust the heat pump by
remote commands via vrDIALOG 810/2 or vrnetDIALOG
840/2 or 860/2. You will find more detailed information
on this in the respective manuals.
8.3.3 Auxiliary functions via vrDIALOG
Using its computer-supported graphics visualisation and
configuration, vrDIALOG 810/2 (eBUS) enables you to
optimise heating appliances and control systems and
thus make use of their energy saving potential. Both of
them enable you to create a visual impression of the
processes in your control system and influence them at
any time. The programmes enable you to record and
graphically prepare system data, to load device configurations and change and save them online and to save information in the form of reports.
geoTHERM exclusive VWS 0020051614_00 installation instructions
Using vrDIALOG 810/2, you can make all the settings for
the heat pump as well as other settings for optimisation.
See Chap. 8.10.
Acceleration mode
This operating mode simplifies the diagnosis of heat
pump functions by speeding up the energy balancing in
hydraulic plan 1 or 3 by a factor of 60. It is used as a
test function.
See Chap. 8.10.
Fixed value controlling
Using this function you can set, via vrDIALOG, a fixed
flow temperature independently of the weather-controlled control system. See Chap. 8.10.
8.4
Description of the controller
8.4.1 Possible system circuits
The controller can control the following system circuits:
– a heating circuit,
– an indirectly heated hot water storage tank,
– a hot water circulation pump,
– a buffer circuit.
In order to extend the system a buffer circuit can be
used to connect up to six additional mixer circuit modules VR 60 (accessories) each with two mixer circuits.
The controller on the operating panel of the heat pump
is used to programme the mixer circuits.
For convenient operation, you can connect the VR 90
remote control unit for the first eight heating circuits
(see Chap. 4.15).
8.4.2 Energy balance controller
Energy balance control is applicable only to hydraulics
without buffer cylinders (hydraulic plans 6).
For economical and fault-free operation of a heat pump,
it is important to regiment the starting of the compressor. The start-up of the compressor is the point at which
the highest loading occurs. With the help of the energy
balance controller it is possible to minimise starts of the
heat pump without compromising the comfort of a
pleasant room atmosphere.
As with other weather-controlled heating controllers the
controller determines a supply set target temperature
by capturing the outside temperature through a heating
curve. The energy balance calculation is carried out
based on this supply set target temperature and the
supply real temperature the difference of which is
measured per minute and added up:
1 degree minute [°min] = 1 K temperature difference in
the course of 1 minute
51
8 Controller
The heat pump starts up at a defined heat deficit (selectable on the controller, see Menu C4) and only
switches off again when the supplied heat is equal to
the heat deficit.
The larger the preset negative numerical value is, the
longer the periods for which the compressor is kept running or at standstill.
8.4.3 Charging principle buffer cylinder
The buffer cylinder is controlled depending on the setpoint flow temperature. The heat pump heats when the
temperature of the buffer cylinder head temperature
sensor VF1 is smaller than the set target temperature. It
heats until the temperature measured by the sensor at
the base of the buffer cylinder, RF1, has reached the setpoint temperature plus 2 K.
In the connection to a hot water cylinder charging the
buffer cylinder is also charged when the temperature of
the head temperature sensor VF1 is less than 2 K higher
than the set target temperature (premature reheating):
VF1 < T VL set + 2 K.
8.4.4 Resetting to factory settings
a
Caution!
Inadvertent deletion of specific settings!
When you reset the control system to
the default settings, specific system
settings can be deleted and the system
can shut down. The system does not
suffer damage.
• Press both dials simultaneously for at least 5 seconds
in the top-level display of the graphics display.
After that you can select whether to reset only the
timer programme or all values to the default settings.

8.4.5 Controller structure
The top level display is a graphics display. It is the
starting point for all the available displays. This display
reappears automatically if you do not actuate any of the
dials for a long time when setting values.
In the following illustrations you can see all the controller screens in an overview in the form of a flow chart.
You will find descriptions of the individual screens in the
sections that follow them.
Controller operation is subdivided into three levels:
The Operator level is intended for the operator.
The Code level (Menus C1 - C9, D1 - D5, I1 - I5 and A1 A9) is reserved for the specialist and is protected
against unintentional adjustments by means of a code
input.
The following parameters can be displayed in the individual menus, but the values cannot be changed if no
password is entered, i. e. access to the code level is disabled.
In Menus C1 to C9 you can set parameters for the various functions of the heat pump for the heating circuit.
In Menus D1 to D5 you can operate and test the heat
pump in diagnostic mode.
In Menus I1 to I5 you can obtain general information regarding the settings for the heat pump.
In Menus A1 to A9 you are guided through the installation menu during the initial commissioning of the heat
pump.
Furthermore it is possible to display and select special
functions, such as the energy saving function. To do
this, press the dial once , twice, or three times, starting
from the top-level display (see Fig. 8.1).
The third level contains functions for optimising the system and can only be set by a specialist using vrDIALOG 810/2 (see Chap. 8.10).

When the compressor or the electric auxiliary
heating is switched on, the arrow is shown filled.
>>> Left and right flash when the compressor is
switched on and energy is consequently being
taken from the environment and fed to the heating system.
>>> Right flashes when energy is being supplied to
the heating system (e.g. only from the electric
auxiliary heating).
The heat pump is in the CH mode. Moreover, the
heating flow temperature is displayed (in the example 30 °C).
The symbol indicates that the domestic hot water
cylinder is being heated or that the heat pump is

optimise heating appliances and control systems and
thus make use of their energy saving potential. Both of
them enable you to create a visual impression of the
processes in your control system and influence them at
any time. The programmes enable you to record and
graphically prepare system data, to load device configurations and change and save them online and to save information in the form of reports.
Using vrDIALOG 810/2, you can make all the settings for
the heat pump as well as other settings for optimisation.
Settings via vrDIALOG may only be performed by an experienced specialist.

The heat pump is engineered in such a way that only a
few maintenance works need to be carried out:
– Manually actuate the safety assemblies in the brine
and heating circuits at regular intervals.
– Check the dirt filter in the brine circuit regularly.
– Check the pressures in the brine and heating circuits
regularly.
– Anual check of pressure/temperature relief valveand
expansion relief valve.
• Manually operate each valve by twisting the operating
cap, and check if water flows unostructed via the
tundish to the discharge point.
• Ensure that both valves reseat stisfstorily.
– Anual check of pressure expansion vessel.
• Turn off mains water supply and open nearest hot

10 Troubleshooting and diagnosis
10.5
Blocking error
The heat pump is shut down. It can only be restarted by
resetting the error after removing the cause of the fault
(see Menu I 1).
With the exception of Errors 90 and 91, these do not
need to be reset. The heat pump starts again when the
cause of the error has been removed.
Emergency mode
Depending on the nature of the malfunction, there are
settings that can be made to allow the heat pump to
continue operating in an emergency mode (by means of
the integrated electrical heating) until the fault is
cleared, either in heating operation (display: "CH priority"), hot water operation (display: "DHW priority") or
both (display: "CH priority/DHW priority"), see the following tables, "Emergency operation" column.

Possible cause
Solution
The auxiliary heating does not function,
even though it has been enabled by the controller (e.g. when the supply has been
blocked by the power supply company
(Power company blockage)); the heating or
the domestic hot water cylinder do not
reach the desired temperature.
The auxiliary heating is tied to a low-rate
tariff which has been blocked by the power
company.
Check whether the auxiliary heating is on a
low-rate tariff and a power company blockage is in effect.
