WARNING
To reduce the risk of property damage or injury, do not attempt to change the backwash (multiport, slide,
or full flow) valve position with the pump running.
WARNING
Jandy pumps are powered by a high voltage electric motor and must be installed by a licensed or certified
electrician or a qualified swimming pool service technician.
WARNING
Due to the potential risk of fire, electric shock, or injuries to persons, Jandy Pumps must be installed
in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), all local electrical and safety codes, and the
Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). Copies of the NEC may be ordered from the National Fire
Protection Association, 470 Atlantic Ave., Boston, MA 02210, or contact your local government inspection
agency.
WARNING
Incorrectly installed equipment may fail, causing severe injury or property damage.
WARNING
• Do not connect the system to an unregulated city water system or other external source of pressurized
water producing pressures greater than 35 PSI.
• Trapped air in system can cause the filter lid to be blown off, which can result in death, serious personal
injury, or property damage. Be sure all air is out of the system before operating.
Stealth™ WaterFall Series Pumps Installation and Operation Manual
Page 5
WARNING
To minimize the risk of severe injury or death the filter and/or pump should not be subjected to the piping
system pressurization test.
Local codes may require the pool piping system to be subjected to a pressure test. These requirements
are generally not intended to apply to the pool equipment such as filters or pumps.
Jandy pool equipment is pressure tested at the factory.
However, if the WARNING cannot be followed and pressure testing of the piping system must include
the filter and/or pump, BE SURE TO COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:
• Check all clamps, bolts, lids, lock rings and system accessories to ensure they are properly installed
and secured before testing.
• RELEASE ALL AIR in the system before testing.
• Water pressure for test must NOT EXCEED 35 PSI.
• Water temperature for test must NOT EXCEED 100°F (38°C).
• Limit test to 24 hours. After test, visually check system to be sure it is ready for operation.
Notice: These parameters apply to Jandy equipment only. For non-Jandy equipment, consult
equipment manufacturer.
WARNING
Chemical spills and fumes can weaken pool/spa equipment. Corrosion can cause filters and other equipment
to fail, resulting in severe injury or property damage. Do not store pool chemicals near your equipment.
CAUTION
Do not start pump dry! Running the pump dry for any length of time will cause severe damage and will
void the warranty.
CAUTION
This pump is for use with permanently installed pools and may also be used with hot tubs and spas if so
marked. Do not use with storable pools. A permanently installed pool is constructed in or on the ground or
in a building such that it cannot be readily disassembled for storage. A storable pool is constructed so that
it may be readily disassembled for storage and reassembled to its original integrity.
CAUTION
Do not install within an outdoor enclosure or beneath the skirt of a hot tub or portable spa. The pump
requires adequate ventilation to maintain air temperature at less than the maximum ambient temperature
rating listed on the motor rating plate.

Pool Pump Suction Entrapment Prevention Guidelines
WARNING
SUCTION HAZARD. Can cause serious injury or death. Do not use this pump for
wading pools, shallow pools or spas containing bottom drains, unless the pump
is connected to at least two (2) functioning suction outlets.
WARNING
Pump suction is hazardous and can trap and drown or disembowel bathers. Do not use or
operate swimming pools, spa, or hot tubs if a suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose.
The following guidelines provide information for pump installation that minimizes the risk of injury to
users of pools, spas, and hot tubs:
Entrapment Protection - The pump suction system must provide protection against the hazards of
suction entrapment.
Suction Outlet Covers - All suction outlets must have correctly installed, screw-fastened covers in
place. All suction outlet (drain) covers must be maintained. Drain covers must be listed/certified to the
latest version of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8. They must be replaced if cracked, broken, or missing.
Number of Suction Outlets Per Pump - Provide at least two (2) hydraulically-balanced main drains,
with covers, as suction outlets for each circulating pump suction line. The centers of the main drains
(suction outlets) on any one (1) suction line must be at least three (3) feet apart, center to center. See
Figure 1 on page 7.
The system must be built to include at least two (2) suction outlets (drains) connected to the pump
whenever the pump is running. However, if two (2) main drains run into a single suction line, the single
suction line may be equipped with a valve that will shut off both main drains from the pump. The system
shall be constructed such that it shall not allow for separate or independent shutoff or isolation of each
drain. See Figure 1 on page 7.
More than one (1) pump can be connected to a single suction line as long as the requirements above are
met.
Water Velocity - The maximum water velocity through the suction fitting or cover for any suction outlet
must be 1.5 feet per second unless the outlet complies with the latest version of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8,
the standard for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and
Whirlpool Bathtub Applications. In any case, do not exceed the suction fitting’s maximum designed flow
rate.
If 100% of the pump’s flow comes from the main drain system, the maximum water velocity in the pump
suction hydraulic system must be six (6) feet per second or less, even if one (1) main drain (suction
outlet) is completely blocked. The flow through the remaining main drain(s) must comply with the latest
version of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8, the standard for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading
Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications.
Testing and Certification - Suction outlet covers must have been tested by a nationally recognized
testing laboratory and found to comply with the latest version of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8, the standard
for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming and Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub
Applications.
Fittings - Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings (but at least two (2) suction
outlets).
Avoid fittings which could cause an air trap.
Pool cleaner suction fittings must conform to applicable International Association of Plumbing and
Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards.

Section 2. General Description
2.1
Introduction
NOTE Better self-priming will be achieved if the pump
is installed as close as possible to the water
level of the pool.
2.
This manual contains information for the proper
installation, operation and maintenance of Jandy Stealth
WaterFall (SWF) Series Pumps. Procedures in this
manual must be followed exactly. To obtain additional
copies of this manual contact Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc.
at 800.822.7933. For address information, see the back
cover of this manual.
2.2
WARNING
Some Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS)
devices are not compatible with installation of check
valves. If the pool has an SVRS device, be sure to
confirm that it will continue to safely operate when
any check valves are installed.
Description
Jandy SWF Pumps are designed to meet the
needs of today’s more hydraulically demanding pool
equipment. The pump housing, backplate, diffuser, hair
and lint pot (pump debris filter basket), and impeller
are all made from high quality thermoplastic materials.
These materials were chosen for their strength and
corrosion resistance.
The pump is driven by an electric motor directly
attached to the pump impeller. As the electric motor
turns, it causes the impeller to turn, which forces water
to flow through the pump. The water flows through the
pump inlet and then into the filter basket. The basket
assembly pre-strains and traps large particles. The
water then enters the center of the pump housing, flows
through the impeller into the diffuser, and then flows
out the pump discharge port.

2.
Upon receipt of the pump, check the carton for
damage. Open the carton and check the pump for
concealed damage, such as cracks, dents or a bent
base. If damage is found, contact the shipper or
distributor where you purchased the pump.
Inspect the contents of the carton and verify
that all the parts are included. See Section 7.1,
Replacement Parts List.
3.1.2 Pump Location
1.
Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. recommends installing
the pump within one (1) foot above the water
level. The pump should not be elevated more than
a few feet above the water level of the pool. A
check valve is recommended on the suction line to
the pump.
The pump must be placed on a solid foundation
that will not vibrate. To further reduce the
possibility of vibration noise, bolt the pump to the
foundation, or place it on a rubber mat.
NOTE Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. recommends bolting
the pump directly to the foundation.
5.
The pump foundation must have adequate
drainage to prevent the motor from getting wet.
The pump needs to be protected from rain and sun.
6.
Proper ventilation is required for the pump to
operate normally. All motors generate heat that
must be removed by providing proper ventilation.
7.
Provide access for future service by leaving a
clear area around the pump. Allow plenty of space
above the pump to remove the lid and basket for
cleaning.
8.
If the equipment is under cover, provide adequate
lighting.
Plumbing
3.1.1 Preparation
The pump and other circulation equipment must
be located more than five (5) feet from the water.
Choose a location that will minimize turns in the
piping.
NOTE In Canada, the pump must be located a
minimum of three (3) meters [approximately ten
(10) feet] from the water (CSA C22.1).
Section 3. Installation
3.1
If the pump is located below water level, isolation
valves must be installed on both the suction and
return lines to prevent back flow of pool water
during any routine or required servicing.
3.1.3 Pipe Sizing
NOTE All HP ratings given in this section apply to fullrated pumps.
3.1.3.1
Suction Pipe
When the pump is located up to 50 feet from the
pool, the recommended minimum pipe size for the
suction side of the pump is 2½" for SWF 125 and 3" for
SWF 185 models.
Stealth™ WaterFall Series Pumps Installation and Operation Manual
3.1.3.2
Discharge Pipe
When the pump is located up to 50 feet from the
pool, the recommended minimum pipe size for the
discharge side of the pump is 2½" for SWF 125 and 3"
for SWF 185 model pumps.
NOTE All pipe sizes are able to withstand the
pressures the pump will deliver, but not
necessarily the flow. If the pipe is too small for
the pump, or it is elevated above water, the
maximum gallons per minute (GPM) may not be
delivered. If this happens, the pump will develop
an air pocket (cavitation) that will make noise
and the pump life will be shortened.
3.1.3.3
1.
2.
Installation Recommendations
If the pump is located below water level, isolation
valves must be installed on both sides of the pump
to prevent back flow of pool water during any
routine or required servicing.
To help prevent difficulty in priming, install the
suction pipe without high points (above inlet of
pump - inverted “U”s in plumbing), which can trap
air. For installations of equipment up to 100 feet
from the water, refer to the pipe sizing chart, Table
1. For installations of equipment more than 100
feet from the water, the recommended pipe must
be increased to the next size.

3.
SWF Pumps come equipped with unions on both
the suction and discharge ports. This feature
simplifies installation and service, and eliminates
the possibility of leaks at threaded adapters.
4.
The SWF Pump must be connected to at least two
(2) main drains (suction outlets) for each pool
pump suction line. Each drain must be provided
with covers that are listed or certified to the latest
published version of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8.
The suction outlets of the main drains must be at
least three (3) feet apart or at different planes. The
suction outlets can be a drain and skimmer, two
(2) drains, two (2) skimmers, or a skimmer with an
equalizer line installed. For additional information,
refer to the latest published version of ANSI/SPSP
7, the standard for Suction Entrapment Avoidance
in Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, Hot
Tubs, and Catch Basins. Check the local codes for
proper installation requirements. Applicable local
codes will take precedence over other codes.
Page 9
NOTE To prevent entrapment, the system must be
built so that it cannot operate with the pump
drawing water from only one (1) main drain. At
least two (2) main drains must be connected
to the pump when it is in operation. However,
if two (2) main drains run into a single suction
line, the single suction line may be equipped
with a valve which will shut off both main drains
from the pump.
5.
The piping must be well supported and not forced
together where constant stress will be experienced.
6.
Always use properly sized valves. Jandy Diverter
Valves and Jandy Ball Valves typically have the
best flow capabilities.
7.
Use the fewest fittings possible. Every additional
fitting has the effect of moving the equipment
farther away from the water.
NOTE If more than ten (10) suction fittings are needed,
the pipe size must be increased.
8.
If this is a new installation, pressure test according
to local codes. See Section 3.3, Pressure Testing.
3.2
Electrical Installation
3.2.1 Voltage Checks
The correct voltage, as specified on the pump data
plate, is necessary for proper performance and long
motor life. Incorrect voltage will decrease the pump’s
ability to perform and could cause overheating, reduce
the motor life, and result in higher electric bills.
It is the responsibility of the electrical installer to
provide data plate operating voltage to the pump by
ensuring proper circuit sizes and wire sizes for this
specific application.
The National Electrical Code (NEC, NFPA-70)
requires all pool pump circuits be protected with a
Ground Fault Interrupter (GFCI). Therefore, it is also
the responsibility of the electrical installer to ensure that
the pump circuit is in compliance with this and all other
applicable requirements of the National Electrical Code
(NEC) and any other applicable installation codes.
CAUTION
Failure to provide data plate voltage (within 10%)
during operation will cause the motor to overheat
and will void the warranty.
3.2.2 Bonding and Grounding
1.
The motor frame must be grounded to a reliable
grounding point using a solid copper conductor,
No. 8 AWG or larger. In Canada, No. 6 AWG or
larger must be used. If the pump is installed within
five (5) feet of the inside walls of the swimming
pool, spa, or hot tub, the motor frame must be
bonded to all metal parts of the swimming pool,
Page 10
2.
Stealth™ WaterFall Series Pumps Installation and Operation Manual
spa, or hot tub structure and to all electrical
equipment, metal conduit, and metal piping within
five (5) feet of the inside walls of the swimming
pool, spa, or hot tub.
4.
To configure the internal wiring of the pump motor
for the correct voltage, refer to the diagram on the
motor data plate.
Bond the motor using the provided external lug.
3.3
Pressure Testing
All Jandy model SWF pumps come with an
additional disposable o-ring for pressure testing. This is
the blue pressure test o-ring. See Figures 2 and 3.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of property damage, severe
personal injury, and/or death, always disconnect
the power source before working on a motor or its
connected load.
CAUTION
Do not open the pump lid before pressure testing,
because the blue pressure test o-ring may fall
out. If this happens, you will need to replace it.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of property damage, severe
personal injury, and/or death, make sure that the
control switch or time clock is installed in an easily
accessible location, so that in the event of an
equipment failure or a loose plumbing fitting, the
equipment can be turned off easily.
If you have not opened the pump lid, skip to
Section 3.3.2, Conducting Pressure Test.
CAUTION
The pump must be permanently connected to a
dedicated electrical circuit. No other equipment,
lights, appliances, or outlets may be connected to
the pump circuit, with the exception of devices that
may be required to operate simultaneously with the
pump, such as a chlorinating device or heater.

3.2.3 Electrical Wiring
1.
The pump motor must be securely and adequately
grounded using the green screw provided. Ground
before attempting to connect to an electrical power
supply. Do not ground to a gas supply line.
2.
Wire size must be adequate to minimize voltage
drop during the start-up and operation of the
pump. See Table 2 for recommended wire sizes.
3.
Insulate all connections carefully to prevent
grounding or short-circuits. Sharp edges on
terminals require extra protection. To prevent wire
nuts from loosening, tape them using a suitable,
listed (UL, ETL, CSA) electrical insulating tape.
For safety, and to prevent entry of contaminants,
reinstall all conduit and terminal box covers. Do
not force connections into the conduit box.

3.3.1 Replace Blue Pressure Test O-ring if
Necessary
If you open the pump lid before conducting the
pressure test, the blue o-ring will probably fall out. If
this happens, you will need to install it on the lid again
before conducting pressure testing.
There is a risk of damage to the blue o-ring during
re-installation. If you damage it when trying to re-install
it, you will need to order a new blue pressure test o-ring
before you begin conducting the pressure test.
These instructions describe the proper procedures
for replacing, using, and disposing of the blue o-ring.
These instructions must be followed exactly.
Read through the instructions completely before
starting the procedure.
3.3.1.1
3.3.1.2
Replace Blue O-ring
1.
Turn the lid with locking ring upside down and
place it on a stable surface.
2.
Place the blue o-ring on the step located ¼" from
the bottom of the lid. (See Figure 4.)
3.
Make sure that the o-ring is properly seated. It
helps to “place” the o-ring on the step rather than
to “roll” it on. That prevents it from rolling off.
NOTE The blue o-ring sits approximately ¼" away
from the seal. See Figure 4.
4.
Carefully install the lid, making sure that the blue
pressure test o-ring sits in the housing without
“binding” or “rolling” off.
5.
Following the markings on the lid’s locking ring,
align ‘START’ with the ports and turn the locking
ring clockwise until ‘LOCKED’ aligns with
the ports. Do not tighten past the ‘LOCKED’
marking.

Stealth™ WaterFall Series Pumps Installation and Operation Manual
3.3.2 Conduct Pressure Test
WARNING
When pressure testing a system with water, air
is often trapped in the system during the filling
process. This air will compress when the system
is pressurized. Should the system fail, this trapped
air can propel debris at a high speed and cause
injury. Every effort to remove trapped air must be
taken, including opening the bleed valve on the
filter and loosening the pump basket lid while filling the pump.
WARNING
Trapped air in system can cause the filter lid to be
blown off, which can result in death, serious personal injury, or property damage. Be sure all the
air is properly out of the system before operating.
DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR TO PRESSURE TEST OR CHECK FOR LEAKS.
WARNING
When pressure testing the system with water, it is
very important to make sure that the pump basket
lid is completely secure.
Section 4. Operation
4.1
CAUTION
Never run the pump without water. Running the
pump “dry” for any length of time can cause severe damage to both the pump and motor and will
void the warranty.
If this is a new pool installation, make sure all
piping is clear of construction debris and has been
properly pressure tested. The filter should be checked
for proper installation, verifying that all connections
and clamps are secure according to the manufacturer's
recommendations.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of property damage or severe
personal injury, verify that all power is turned off
before starting this procedure.
1.
Release all pressure from the system and open the
filter pressure release valve.
2.
Depending on the location of the pump, do one of
the following:
- If the pump is located below the water level of
the pool, open the filter pressure release valve
to prime the pump with water.
WARNING
Do not pressure test above 35 PSI. Pressure testing must be done by a trained pool professional.
Circulation equipment that is not tested properly
can fail, which could result in severe personal
injury and/or property damage.
1.
Fill the system with water, using care to eliminate
trapped air.
2.
Pressurize the system with water to no more than
35 PSI.
3.
Close the valve to trap pressurized water in the
system.
4.
Observe the system for leaks and/or pressure
decay.
5.
If there are lid leaks, repeat steps 1-3. For
technical support, call 1.800.822.7933.
6.
Discard the blue pressure test o-ring after
successfully completing the test.
Start-up
- If the pump is located above water level,
remove the lid and fill the basket with water
before starting the pump.
3.
Prior to replacing the lid, check for debris around
the lid seal or lid o-ring seat, as debris will cause
air to leak into the system, and make it difficult to
prime the pump.
4.
Place the lid on the pump housing and handtighten it to make an air tight seal. Do not use any
tools to tighten the lid, hand-tighten only. Make
sure all valves are open and the unions are tight.
5.
Turn on the power to the pump. Then turn on the
pump.
6.
Once all the air has left the filter, close the
pressure release valve.
7.
The pump should prime. The time it takes to
prime will depend on the elevation and length of
pipe used on the suction supply pipe. See Section
3.1.3.3 for proper elevation and pipe size.
8.
If the pump does not prime and all the instructions

Turn the lid’s locking ring counter-clockwise
until ‘START’ aligns with the ports. (You may use
a tool for leverage to open the lid, but never to
tighten the lid when closing it.) Carefully remove
the lid.
3.
Lift the basket out of the pump.
4.
Dispose of the debris and thoroughly clean the
basket, making sure all the holes are open. Using
a garden hose, spray the basket from the outside to
help clear the holes. Use your hands to remove any
remaining debris.
The pump must be protected when freezing
temperatures are expected. Allowing the pump to
freeze will cause severe damage and void the warranty.
CAUTION
Do not use antifreeze solutions in the pool,
spa, or hot tub systems! Antifreeze is highly toxic
and may damage the circulation system. The only
exception to this is Propylene Glycol. For more
information see your local pool/spa supply store or
contact a qualified swimming pool service company.
1.
Drain all water from the pump, system equipment,
and piping.
2.
Remove the two (2) drain plugs. Store the drain
plugs in a safe location and reinstall them when
the cold weather season is over. Do not lose the
o-rings.
3.
Keep the motor covered and dry. Do not cover the
pump with plastic. This creates condensation that
will damage the pump.
CAUTION
A misaligned basket will cause the lid to be improperly seated, allowing an air leak which could
result in pump damage.
5.
Replace the basket in the pump by aligning the
opening with the suction pipe. If aligned properly,
the basket will drop easily into place. Do not force
into place.
6.
Prior to replacing the lid, remove any debris
around the lid seal or lid o-ring seat, as this will
cause air to leak into the system.
7.
Place the lid with locking ring on the pump
housing. Following the marking on the locking
ring, align ‘START’ with the ports and turn the
ring clockwise until ‘LOCKED’ aligns with the
ports. Hand-tighten the lid to make an air tight
seal. Do not use any tools to tighten the lid. Do
not tighten past the ‘LOCKED’ marking.
8.
Verify that all valves have been returned to the
proper position for normal operation.
9.
If a filter is installed, open the pressure release
valve on the filter, and make sure it is clean and
ready for operation.
10. Turn on the power to the pump. Once all the
air has been evacuated from the filter, close the
pressure release valve.
Winterizing the Pump
CAUTION
Routine Maintenance
Inspect the pump basket for debris by looking
through the clear pump lid. Remove any debris, because
as debris accumulates, it will begin to block the flow
of water through the pump. Keep the basket clean to
improve the performance of the pump.
1. Turn off the power to the pump. If the pump is
located below the water level, close the isolation
valves on the suction and discharge sides of the
pump to prevent a backflow of water.
2.
Page 13
NOTE Zodiac Pool System, Inc. recommends having
a qualified service technician or electrician
properly disconnect the electrical wiring at
the switch or junction box. Once the power is
removed, loosen the two (2) unions and store
the pump indoors. For safety, and to prevent
entry of contaminants, reinstall all conduit and
terminal box covers.
4.
When the system is reopened for operation, make
sure all piping, valves, wiring, and equipment
are in accordance with the manufacturer's
recommendations. Pay close attention to the filter
and electrical connections.
5.
The pump must be primed prior to starting; refer
to Section 4.1, Start-up.

Stealth™ WaterFall Series Pumps Installation and Operation Manual
Section 6. Troubleshooting and Repair
Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. recommends that you contact a qualified service technician to perform any repairs on
the filter/pump system. To locate a qualified technician, check your local yellow pages or visit www.jandy.com and
click on "Product Support."
6.1
Troubleshooting
Symptom
The cleaning/circulating system is
not operating correctly.
Possible Problem/Solution
Verify that skimmer baskets, pump basket and other screens are clean. Clean as
necessary.
Check filter and clean as necessary.
Check valve positions. Adjust as necessary.
NOTE Multiple pieces of equipment operating at one time (for example, waterfalls, spa
jets, and surface returns) may prevent the cleaning system from working properly.
Check the cleaning system manually to ensure that the system is adjusted according to the
manufacturer's recommendations.
Bubbles present in the pump
basket.
Air in system. Check the pool or spa water level to ensure it is at the proper level and
that air is not being drawn into the suction piping. If the water is at normal level, turn
off the pump. Turn the lid’s locking ring counter-clockwise until ‘START’ aligns with the
ports. Carefully remove the lid and check for debris around the lid o-ring seat or improper
installation of the lid seal, as either of these conditions will cause air to leak into the system.
Clean the lid seal or lid o-ring and place on the lid. Place the lid with locking ring on the
pump housing. Following the marking on the locking ring, align ‘START’ with the ports and
turn the ring clockwise until ‘LOCKED’ aligns with the ports. Hand-tighten the lid to make an
air tight seal. Do not use any tools to tighten the lid. Turn the pump back on.
Air leaks are still present.
Check the suction side piping union. While the pump is running, try to tighten the union. If
this does not stop the air leak, turn off the pump. Loosen both unions and slide the pump
out of the way. Remove, clean and re-install both union o-rings.
Reposition the pump next to the piping and secure the union nuts to the pump. With clean
union o-rings, hand-tightening of the unions should create a seal. If the unions still do not
seal, gently tighten with a large pair of tongue-and-groove pliers.
Do not over-tighten.
There is no air in the system, but
the pressure is still low.
It is possible that debris is caught in the pump impeller. The pump impeller moves the
water, and the vanes in the impeller can become blocked with debris. See Section 6.2,
Service Technician Maintenance, 6.2.1, Blocked Impeller, for more information.
There is no debris blocking the
impeller and the pressure is still
low.
The pump impeller and diffuser are showing signs of normal wear. Have a qualified service
technician check the impeller and diffuser and replace as necessary.
If the pump is part of a relatively new installation, it could be an electrical problem. Contact
a qualified service technician. Have the technician check for loose electrical connections
and check the voltage at the pump motor while it is in operation. The voltage must be within
10% of the motor's data plate rating. If the voltage is not within 10%, contact a qualified
electrician and/or the local power service provider.
Pump seal is leaking air. Have a qualified service technician replace the seal.
The pump is leaking water between This is caused by a damaged or failed mechanical seal. Replace the seal. See Section 6.2,
the motor and pump body.
Service Technician Maintenance, 6.2.4, Mechanical Seal Replacement.
The pump gets hot and shuts off
periodically.
Ensure that there is adequate room around the motor to circulate air and keep the motor
cool. Have a qualified electrician check for loose connections and check the voltage at the
pump motor while it is in operation. The voltage must be within 10% of the motor's data
plate rating. If the voltage is not within 10%, contact a qualified electrician and/or the local
power service provider.

This is the only warranty given by Zodiac. No one is authorized to make any other warranties on behalf of Zodiac. IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY
OF MERCHANTABILITY AND THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES LISTED ABOVE.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Zodiac expressly disclaims and excludes any liability for
consequential, incidental, indirect, or punitive damages for breach of any expressed or implied warranty. In no event shall Zodiac be liable for incidental or consequential damages of
any nature, including damage to vinyl liners, plaster, aggregate-based pool surfaces, tile, stone, coping, ¿xtures, skimmers or skimmer covers, plumbing, drains, equipment covers or
shelters, landscaping, animals, plants, or dwellings. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply
to you. Certain vinyl liner patterns are particularly susceptible to rapid surface wear or pattern removal caused by objects coming into contact with the vinyl surface, including pool
brushes, pool toys, Àoats, fountains, chlorine dispensers, and automatic pool cleaners. Some vinyl liner patterns can be seriously scratched or abraded by rubbing the surface with a
pool brush. Ink from the pattern can also rub off during the installation process or when it comes into contact with objects in the pool. Zodiac is not responsible for, and this warranty
does not cover, pattern removal, cuts, abrasions or markings on vinyl liners.
