SAFETY
For personal safety, and to avoid damage to equipment, follow all safety instructions displayed in this guide. Repair
and service of your heat pump must be performed by qualified service personnel. Failure to properly install, operate,
maintain, or repair the heat pump will void factory warranty. Safety signals are placed where particular attention is
required. Please note "WARNING" signals relate to personal safety, while "CAUTION” signals promote avoiding
damage to equipment.
Follow all National Electric Codes (NEC) unless State or Local guidelines supersede. When installing and using your
heat pump, basic safety precautions must always be followed, including the following:
WARNING - Failure to heed the following may result in injury or death.






Heat pumps contain no owner-repairable components.
Electrical Installation should be by Licensed Electrician only.
Service to the refrigerant circuit must be performed only by qualified HVAC Technicians.
Heat pumps utilize high voltage and rotating equipment. Use caution when servicing.
Heater contains refrigerant under pressure. Recover refrigerant before opening system.
Prolonged immersion in water warmer than normal body temperature can cause fatal Hyperthermia.
The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly increase the risk of fatal Hyperthermia.
 Persons having an adverse medical history, or pregnant women, should consult a physician before
using a hot tub or spa. In addition, children and the extreme elderly should be supervised by a
responsible adult.
CAUTION
- Failure to heed the following may result in equipment damage.
 Improper water chemistry can cause damage to pump, filter, pool shell, etc. To avoid equipment
damage, maintain Pool/Spa water per standards detailed later in this manual.
 Water flow exceeding 70-GPM requires a bypass. Damage due to excessive water flow will void
warranty.

EQUIPMENT CLEARANCES
Keep the area immediately adjacent to the heat pump clear of items such as shrubs and bushes, lawn furniture,
chemicals containers, etc. These items can prevent air from circulating properly through the heater, and will result in
inefficient operation and/or damage to the heat pump.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
1)
Locate the equipment power disconnect within 6-feet of the heater’s electrical enclosure.
2)
Never mount power disconnects directly to heat pump.
3)
Only use copper conductors.
4)
Use sequencing controllers when multiple heaters are installed on site.
5)
Local codes and regulations may require the use of a ground fault interruption device (GFI Circuit Breaker).
Nuisance tripping of these devices is common and not covered under the terms of the Manufacturer’s warranty.
6)
Review online product manual when connecting external controller devices to heat pump.

WINTERIZING
In areas where freezing conditions are a rare occurrence, allow the filtration system to run continuously throughout
the freeze period. Typically, during light freeze conditions, circulating (moving) water will not freeze. In areas where
freezing conditions are prevalent and sustained, the heat pump must be winterized as follows:
1) Disconnect all electrical power to the heater; turn off circulating pump.
2) At the two (2) connection unions, disconnect the plumbing to the heater (removal is counter-clockwise).
3) If your unit has an external drain plug, remove plug. This plug would be located at lower, front corner of
heater (position may vary between models). Allow water to drain out of the condenser. Replace the
winterizing plug by threading the plug in clockwise until just snug, then apply an additional 1/8 turn.
4) If no drain plug is found, unit is self draining from unions. Check online manuals for appropriate winterizing
procedures on heat pumps older than 2005.
5) To prevent insects and vermin from entering the plumbing during the winterized period, partially reconnect
the two (2) plumbing connection unions: couple each union one or two threads; this will permit condensation
to drain, but will prevent most insects and animals from entering the plumbing circuit.
START UP
To ready a winterized heat pump for use, simply retighten plumbing connection unions. Hand-tight is generally
sufficient.
