• A ground terminal (pressure wire connector) is provided on the control box inside the unit to permit connection of a minimum No. 6 AWG

(16 mm²) solid copper bonding conductor between this point and any metal equipment, metal water pipe, metal enclosures of electrical equipment, or conduit within five feet (1.5 m) of the unit as needed to comply with local requirements.

• Do not connect any auxiliary components (for example, cable, additional speakers, headphones, additional audio components) to the audio system unless approved by Watkins Manufacturing Corporation

WARNING

• To reduce the risk of electrical shock, replace a damaged cord immediately. Failure to do so may result in death or serious personal injury due to electrocution.

• Your fitness system is provided with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter

(GFCI) for user and equipment protection. To ensure proper operation of this important safety device, test according to the following instructions:

• A ground terminal is provided inside the junction box. To reduce the risk of electric shock, connect this terminal to the grounding terminal of your electrical service or supply panel with a continuous green, insulated copper wire. The wire must be equivalent in size to the circuit conductors supplying the equipment. In addition, a bonding terminal (pressure wire connector) is provided on the outside of the control box/heater for bonding to local ground points. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this connector should be bonded with a No. 6 AWG (16 mm ² ) solid copper wire to any metal ladders, water pipes, or other metal within 5 feet (1.5 m) of the fitness system to comply with local requirements. The means of disconnection must be readily accessible, but must be installed at least 5 feet (1.5 m) from the fitness system.

Your fitness system must be installed on a smooth and level surface that can support 210 lbs per square foot.

OUTDOOR CONSIDERATIONS

• Local electrical and plumbing codes.

If a new slab is poured, consult your local electrical codes regarding grounding and bonding. Local code may require a bonding wire to be attached to the reinforcing bar or wire mesh that is embedded in the concrete. If new concrete is being poured, this is the ideal time to install the conduit for the incoming electrical supply.

Even if a new pad has been poured, it is essential that the system site is level and planar. There is a simple way to ensure that this is the case.

First, draw a chalk outline of the footprint of your fitness system. Place a six-foot level along and around the footprint of the system. Verify that there are no gaps between the level and floor. Next pour water inside of the chalk footprint. Verify that the water does not puddle inside the footprint.

Should there a be a gap or should the water puddle inside the footprint, call your ENDLESS POOLS dealer prior to continuing to discuss the best way to resolve this situation.

INDOOR CONSIDERATIONS

• Local electrical and plumbing codes.

• Ventilation fans and/or dehumidifiers should be provided to handle the humidity developed by your fitness system. Walls, ceiling and wood trim should be water resistant, also.

• Chemicals will vaporize from the water and may cause an odor and possibly corrosion to certain home hardware. Never store chemicals inside the fitness system cabinet.

• During the normal use of the fitness system, water will escape the vessel. Never place on or over any materials, which may be damaged by this water or the chemicals within the water. Keep damageable materials far enough away to avoid water damage, even if the fitness system should lose all its water.

• Consider and prepare for the unlikely event of rapid drainage. If placement of the fitness system is permanent, you may wish to provide floor drains to accommodate draining, etc. Always leave room all around the fitness system for easy access in case repairs are necessary.

• Consider and prepare for the unlikely event of removal.

• Do not set fitness system on finished floor without a waterproof barrier protection underneath.

• The fitness system should have access to a power source capable of supplying 230 volts AC power. It must be wired directly into a grounded circuit with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI).

No other appliances should be on the same circuit.

• The fitness system should be close to a source of water.

• Be sure that the location you choose is stable. It must be able to support the weight of the fitness system when it is filled with water, plus the weight of the occupants. The fitness system may weigh up to 22,745 lbs (10,330 kg) when it is filled with water.

• Do not use the fitness system above a finished living area due to the risk of water damage.

• The fitness system is not designed for in-floor installation.

However, it is compatible with a deck system that is built flush with the bar top, provided you leave access for service.

• Be sure to note any other considerations, such as aesthetics or privacy concerns, that may affect the safety or enjoyment of using the fitness system.

Page 4

• Consider local codes pertaining to fencing, enclosures, walls, electrical and plumbing. You will need to ensure that your fitness system is an adequate distance from power lines, both above ground and underground. Your fitness system will also need to be child proofed.

• View from house for aesthetics and supervisory needs.

• Distance from house for wintertime soaking.

• Nighttime lighting.

• Consider sunlight exposure, views, access, property lines, lighting, wind direction, shielding, septic tanks, plants, and trees when determining your location. Chemicals in the fitness system water may splash damaging nearby plant life.

• If your fitness system is to be located on a second story, be positive support is adequate. Call your builder and a structural engineer.

• Area for placement of support equipment where adequate space will be needed to gain access to components for maintenance and general servicing.

• Be sure to note any other considerations, such as aesthetics or privacy concerns, that may affect the safety or enjoyment of using the fitness system.

• Provide adequate drainage away from the equipment and adequate elevation to allow draining by siphon, if should be required.

• Location of electrical supply. 230-volt systems require hard wire installed from the main electrical source, to the sub panel, then to the fitness system terminal block. All equipment must be ground fault circuit protected (NOT SUPPLIED) . All electrical wiring must comply with the national electric code.

• Locations at least 5 ft (1.5 m) from all metal surfaces. A fitness system may be installed within 5 feet of metals surfaces providing each metal surface is permanently connected by a no. 8 awg (8.4 mm2) copper conductor attached to the bonding wire connector on the heater provided for this purpose. All installations must comply with article 680 of the U.S. national electric code and ANSI/NFPA

IMPORTANT: Fill the fitness system with water before turning on the power.

Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has been carefully designed to give you maximum safety against electrical shock. Connecting the fitness system to an improperly wired circuit will negate many of the fitness system’s safety features. Improper wiring may also cause electrocution, risk of fire, and other risks of injuries. Please read and follow the electrical installation requirements and instructions completely!

230 VOLT PERMANENTLY CONNECTED

ENDLESS POOLS fitness systems must be wired in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes. All electrical work should be done by an experienced, licensed electrician. We recommend the use of appropriate electrical conduit, fittings, and wire for all circuits.

The diagram below illustrates how to wire the fitness system model:

• An electrical subpanel containing two 30 Amp breakers is included with your fitness system. We recommend that this subpanel be used to supply power to the fitness system.

• The subpanel requires a 60 amp, single phase, 230 volt, four wire service

(two line, one neutral, one ground). The grounding conductor must not be less than #6 AWG. Refer to local codes and to NEC 250-122 (table).

• Mount the subpanel in the vicinity of the fitness system, but not closer than five feet away, in accordance with all local codes. (N.E.C. 680-38 to

41-A-3)

• Open fitness system by removing the 4 screws holding the vertical

T-spacer located in the center of the equipment compartment (back side of fitness system). Slide panel towards center, raise panel, pull bottom out, lower, disconnect light wires on both side and remove, repeat for other panel.

• Insert power wires into fitness system from either side towards the bottom, you will find a plastic cap attached to wall.

• Once your fitness system has been filled with water, turn it on and test all of the circuit breakers.

IMPORTANT: If breakers immediately trip, verify that the wires are correctly connected. Breaker should be tested prior to each use. Here’s how:

1. Push the “TEST” button on each GFCI breaker, and observe it click OFF.

2. Wait 30 seconds, then push the breaker switch to the OFF (down) position (to ensure that it has completely disengaged), then push the breaker switch to the ON (up) position. If you don't wait 30 seconds, the fitness system’s power indicator may continue to blink – try again.

If any of the GFCI breakers fails to operate in this manner, your fitness system may have an electrical malfunction, and you may be at risk of electrical shock. Turn off all circuits and do not use the fitness system until the problem has been corrected by an authorized service agent.

WARNING: Removing, or bypassing any GFCI breaker will result in an unsafe fitness system and will void the fitness system’s warranty.

IMPORTANT: If you ever need to move or relocate your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system, it is essential that you understand and apply these installation requirements. Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has been carefully engineered to provide maximum safety against electric shock.

Remember, connecting the fitness system to an improperly wired circuit will negate many of its safety features.

NOTE: Long wiring runs may require larger-gauge wire than stated.

The swim machine is turned on through the use of the remote control, which also adjusts the speed of the current faster or slower. When changing speed, you must press and hold the buttons on the remote, then wait a few seconds for the current to adjust. Upon initial start-up you will find that the unit has been set to its lowest speed; which is a barely perceptible current. You will need to press and HOLD the FASTER button to increase the speed. Our standard pool’s top speed is roughly equivalent to a 1:08 100 yard pace (1:14/100 meters) a speed for expert swimmers only. Set the water speed at a comfortable level for your needs. Remotes are waterproof but can not be submerged.

IMPORTANT: Starting up the swim machine will automatically turn OFF the hydromassage jet system if ON, once swim machine is turned OFF the hydormassage jet system will turn back ON. To stop swimming, simply press the on/off button on the remote. If left running, the power unit will turn off automatically after thirty minutes and can be restarted by pressing the on/off button again. Once you have found an optimal speed for yourself, you may leave the system at that setting. The controller for the swim machine is designed with a “ramp-up” feature which forces the swim machine to start slowly, but will increase to the last setting at which someone swam.

When you are first learning to swim in the swim current, it is often useful to allow yourself to drift back to the rear of the pool. Let your feet rest on the rear seat and then swim forward into position. By starting from the back, you can get a feel for just how much room you have. When swimming, center your outstretched arm about one foot from the front grill.

TREADMILL-HYDRAULIC (OPTIONAL)

TREADMILL OPERATION - Two remote controls have been provided with your system and have been packaged in the owner's packet inside the equipment compartment. These remotes are identical to the swim machine remotes but are labeled Treadmill.

Upon initial start-up you will find that unit has been set to its lowest speed. You will need to press and HOLD the FASTER button to increase the speed.

The treadmill is turned on through the use of a remote control, which also adjusts the speed of the treadmill faster or slower. When changing speed, you must press and hold the buttons on the remote, then wait a few seconds for the treadmill to adjust. Set the speed at a comfortable level for your needs. Remotes are waterproof but can not be submerged.

To turn off the treadmill, simply press the on/off button on the remote.

If left running, the power unit will turn off automatically after thirty

minutes and can be restarted by pressing the on/off button again. The treadmill will always default to the slowest speed when turned on.

When you are first learning to use the treadmill in conjunction with the swim machine, it is best to start at the lowest speeds for both the swim machine and treadmill. The added resistance the swim machine offers may allow for a slower treadmill speed then initially thought.

IMPORTANT: Do not use treadmill when circulation pump is OFF.

PACE DISPLAY (OPTIONAL)

SWIM PACE DISPLAY - For any ENDLESS POOLS’ product that generates a swim current the default setting for the display is 100 yard pace (shown as minutes:seconds). This indicates the water flow equivalent of swimming 100 yards in a traditional lap pool in the indicated amount of time. Swim current units can also be for a 100 meter pace. As the current speed is increased, the value the display reads goes down, since the faster you swim the less time it takes to swim 100 yards (100 meters). Any Pace Display can be set for a percentage of 0-100.

TREADMILL PACE DISPLAY - For the optional hydraulic treadmill the default setting for the display is miles per hour.

The pace can be also be converted to display kilometers per hour. Unlike a swim current display, as the speed of the treadmill is increased, the value on the display will also increase. Any Pace Display can be set for a percentage of 0-100.

QUICK START-UP INSTRUCTIONS

BEFORE YOU FILL YOUR FITNESS SYSTEM

Make sure your fitness system has been properly installed per all local codes, including the location of the fitness system, the foundation of the fitness system, as well as the electrical installation of the fitness system.

DO:

• Know which water treatment system you will be using and make sure you have necessary chemicals available. Read all of the instructions that come with the system.

• Have 5-way Test Strips Available.

• Have pH/Alkalinity Up & Down available.

• Know the Hardness of your water, contact your dealer to help you with this information. See Water Quality and Maintenance for more information.

• Purchase the Clean Screen ® pre-filter to remove unwanted contaminants from the tap water. This is recommended, not required.

DON'T:

• Fill the fitness system with hot water or cold water with cold water temperature below 50º F (10º C)! Tripping of the high-limit thermostat may result causing your fitness system to stop functioning.

START-UP

Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has been thoroughly tested during the manufacturing process to ensure reliability and long-term customer satisfaction. A small amount of water may have remained in the plumbing after testing and, as a result, may have spotted the fitness system shell or the fitness system siding prior to delivery. Before filling the fitness system, wipe the fitness system shell clean with a soft rag.

The following instructions must be read and followed exactly to ensure a successful start-up or refill.

CAUTIONS

• DO NOT CONNECT POWER TO AN EMPTY fitness system. Power to the fitness system automatically activates critical components within the fitness system, such as controls, heater, and other systems. If power is supplied to these components prior to the fitness system being filled, the components will be damaged, and this may result in a non-warranty component failure.

• DO NOT use your fitness system after filling until all of the steps listed below are completed.

• DO NOT add chlorine if treating your fitness system with polyhexamethylene biguanide (Biguanide, PHMB, eg. BaquaSpa sanitizer.

® )

• DO NOT use a salt-generated chlorine system, this will damage components and is not covered under your warranty.

• Before filling your fitness system for the first time, remove the equipment compartment door and check to ensure that the unions on either side of the pump(s) and heater are hand-tight and the slide valves are open.

1. CLOSE DRAIN, remove the filter compartment grill skimmer

tray and one filter (pg. 19). Fill your fitness system through the filter compartment using the CleanScreen ™ pre-filter (optional from dealer) that attaches to your garden hose. The water level of your fitness system should be maintained at a level 6" (15 cm) below the top of the fitness system. Reinstall the filter, skimmer tray, and grill once the fitness system is filled.

IMPORTANT: Watkins Manufacturing Corporation does not recommend that the fitness system be filled with “softened” water, as this may damage the fitness system’s equipment.

2. AFTER THE FITNESS SYSTEM HAS BEEN FILLED with water and the equipment compartment door is secured, power must be applied to the fitness system.

• FIRST activate power to the subpanel from the main house panel.

• NEXT open the door of the electrical subpanel and reset the

GFCI breakers.

• FINALLY, close and secure the subpanel door.

3. TO CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE HYDROMASSAGE JET

SYSTEM and to purge any remaining air from the system complete the following steps:

• Press the jets button placing all hydromassage jets on High.

• Once the jet system is fully operational (as indicated by strong, non-surging jets), priming of the fitness system is complete.

• To turn off the jets, press the jets button on the main control panel.

• If you do not feel a steady stream of water from your jets, refer to the instructions for priming the pump in the fitness system

TROUBLESHOOTING section.

4. SET THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL to the desired temperature between 59°F (15°C) and 104°F (40°C), then place the optional fitness system cover on the fitness system and allow the water temperature to stabilize approximately 1°F (0.5°C) per hour. Make sure you secure the cover in place. Periodically check the fitness system water temperature. When the water temperature reaches desired temperature, proceed to the next step. The fitness system temperature is pre-programmed to reach 85°F (29.5°C). You may change the water temperature by pressing the  button on the control panel to raise the temperature, or lower temperature by pressing the ▼button.

5. USING A TEST STRIP AND APPLICABLE CHEMICALS adjust

Total Alkalinity (TA) to 80-120 ppm, Calcium Hardness (CH) to

50-150 ppm, then fitness system water pH to between 7.2 and 7.8.

These procedures are listed in the “Water Quality and Maintenance” section.

OPERATION NOTE: Adjusting the Total Alkalinity as the first step is important, as out-of balance TA will affect your ability to adjust the pH correctly and will prevent the sanitizer from operating effectively.

IMPORTANT: Activate the swim machine by using the blue swim machine remote and increase speed to at least 50% before adding chemicals. Disperse the chemicals in the swim area away from the walls.

6. SUPERCHLORINATE THE FITNESS SYSTEM WATER by adding

1½ teaspoons of chlorine (sodium dichlor) per 250 gallons (950 liters) of water while running the swim machine above 50% for 10 minutes. Disperse the chemicals in the swim area away from the walls.

7. TEST THE FITNESS SYSTEM WATER FOR CHLORINE

RESIDUAL. If the residual is between 1 and 5 ppm on the test strips, go on to the next step. If the residual is less than 1 ppm, activate the swim machine above 50% for another 10 minutes and add more chlorine as needed, then retest.

WARNING: High sanitizer levels can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs and skin. Always allow the sanitizer level to fall to the recommended range before using the fitness system.

8. RECHECK the Total Alkalinity (TA) 80-120 ppm, Calcium Hardness

(CH) 50-150 ppm, and the pH must be between 7.2 and 7.8.

The fitness system is ready for use when the fitness system water has circulated and the bromine level remains between 1 and 2 ppm or chlorine level remains between 1 and 5 ppm.

BASIC INFORMATION

It’s important to have clean water. Water maintenance is one of the least understood, yet most important areas of fitness system ownership.

Your dealer can guide you through the process of achieving and maintaining balanced water in your fitness system, given your local conditions.

IMPORTANT: Water Terminology can be found at the end of this section.

• Always read & refer to the owner's manual for complete information.

• Test your water with a test strip once a week, or each time the fitness system is used.

• Add chemicals in frequent, small amounts to prevent overdosing the fitness system.

• Use the fitness system only when the chlorine level is between 1-5 ppm or manually add chlorine as needed.

• It is the fitness system owner's responsibility to prevent over or under chlorination.

IMPORTANT: It is recommended at a minimum to change 50% of your water every year; however, it is dependent on the amount of usage.

Check with your ENDLESS POOLS dealer to determine if water in your region has unique qualities - such as high metal or mineral content - that should be addressed.

Maintaining the water quality and the cleanliness of the filters in your fitness system is your responsibility. Keeping the fitness system water balanced prolongs the life of the components and will make the water more comfortable. Your program will depend on your water’s mineral content, how often you use your fitness system, and how many people use it. Watkins Manufacturing Corporation has developed several water care systems and products to simplify water care which are available from authorized ENDLESS POOLS dealers.

CHEMICAL SAFETY

When using chemicals, read the labels carefully and follow directions precisely. Though chemicals protect you and your fitness system when used correctly, they can be hazardous in concentrated form. Always observe the following guidelines:

• Allow only a responsible person to handle fitness system chemicals.

Keep them out of the reach of children.

• Accurately measure the exact quantities specified, never more. Do not overdose your fitness system.

• Handle all containers with care. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place.

• Always keep chemical containers closed when not in use. Replace caps on their proper containers.

Water Quality and Maintenance

Page 15

• Don't inhale fumes, or allow chemicals to come in contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Wash your hands immediately after use.

• Follow the emergency advice on the product label in case of accidental contact, or if the chemical is swallowed. Call a doctor or the local

Poison Control Center. If a doctor is needed, take the product container along with you so that the substance can be identified.

• Don't let chemicals get on surrounding surfaces or landscaping. Don't use a vacuum cleaner to clean up chemical spills.

• Never smoke around chemicals. Some fumes can be highly flammable.

• Don't store any chemicals in the fitness system equipment compartment.

HOW TO ADD CHEMICALS

TO THE WATER

IMPORTANT: All fitness system water chemicals, must always be dispersed into the swim area while the swim machine is running higher than 50%, and must run for a minimum of ten minutes.

TO ADMINISTER FITNESS SYSTEM WATER

CHEMICALS:

1. Fold back the cover.

2. Turn swim machine ON, run for 10 minutes and turn OFF.

3. Carefully measure the recommended amount of chemical and disperse into swim area while swim machine is on. Use care not to splash chemicals on your hands, in your eyes, on the fitness system sheet surface, or on the siding.

Risk of Drowning: Never leave an open fitness system unattended!

WARNING: High sanitizer levels can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs and skin. Always allow the sanitizer level to fall to the recommended range before using the fitness system.

IMPORTANT “SUPER CHLORINATION/NON-CHLORINE SHOCK

TREATMENT” NOTE: After administering a super chlorination treatment or non-chlorine shock to your fitness system, leave the cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the oxidizer gas to vent. A high concentration of trapped oxidizer gas which may exist as a result of the shock treatment (not daily sanitation) may eventually cause discoloration or vinyl degradation to the bottom of the cover.

FUNDAMENTALS OF

WATER MAINTENANCE

• Testing: Test the water weekly or each time the fitness system is used with convenient test strips or more accurate liquid/tablet reagent test kit per instructions. Critical parameters: sanitizer level, pH, Calcium

Hardness (CH), and Total Alkalinity (TA). Store test equipment in a dark, cool, dry place to maintain potency.

• Chemical Balance/pH

Control: It is important to adjust the primary water parameters (Total Alkalinity,

Calcium hardness, pH) into the recommended ranges so that they are stabilized or balanced. Balance the water chemistry every time you fill the fitness system with new water and then during the life of that body of water. Keeping the water

in balance prevents damage by holding the pH in a safe range and preventing calcium scale formation on fitness system equipment.

A low pH can damage metal components whereas a high pH can cause high levels of calcium to form scale. Your dealer should provide a detailed water chemistry orientation soon after your new fitness system is filled for the very first time.

• The following three water components must be kept in balance to avoid damage to the fitness system. Do balance these components in the order they are listed here as each will help you balance the next using a minimum amount of chemicals.

1. Calcium Hardness (CH) – CH is the measure of the amount of dissolved calcium in the water. Low levels can make the water corrosive and high levels cause scale formation on fitness system components. The recommended CH reading is between

50 - 150 ppm. If the CH level is too high, lower it with the calcium remover per instructions. Once in balance, the CH reading normally remains stable until more water is added. Great care must be taken when filling the fitness system from a water softener to ensure that the calcium remains in balance and avoid damage to the fitness system.

2. Total Alkalinity (TA) - TA is a measure of the water’s ability to resist changes of pH or buffer capacity. A low TA allows the pH to fluctuate easily. The recommended TA reading is between 80 - 120

ppm. To raise the TA, use pH/Alkalinity Up (sodium hydrogen carbonate). To lower the TA, use pH/Alkalinity Down (sodium bisulfate). We recommend you check the TA reading once per month. Raising/lowering the TA may cause the pH readings to fluctuate widely. Ignore the pH readings on the test strip while you are balancing the TA.

3. pH - The pH is the measure of the acidity and alkalinity.

Maintaining the proper pH level will optimize the effectiveness of the sanitizer, preventing damage to the fitness system and physical discomfort for fitness system users. A low pH dissipates sanitizer, causes corrosion, and irritates fitness system users. A high pH level will neutralize sanitizer, promote scaling and cloud water. The recommended pH reading is between 7.2 - 7.8. To lower the pH level, use pH/Alkalinity Down (sodium bisulfate). To raise the pH level, use pH/Alkalinity Up (sodium carbonate).

• Water Conditioners: Fitness system fill water varies from location to location and user to user, therefore it is important to consult with your dealer for an appropriate program. a. CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter –The CLEAN SCREEN pre-flter should be used at every fill and top-off to remove contaminants from the fill water, especially iron, copper, and manganese. Many water sources, including well water, contain high concentrations of minerals that can cause staining of the shell and plastics.

b. Stain and Scale control – For water high in calcium and minerals, it may be necessary to use an anti-scalant like Stain and Scale control. As water evaporates from your fitness system and new water is added, the amount of dissolved minerals like calcium, copper, iron, and manganese will increase. (Minimize evaporation by keeping the cover on the fitness system whenever possible.)

High iron or copper content in the water may produce green or brown stains on the fitness system.

c. Foam Inhibitors - Soap is introduced into the fitness system water from users’ bodies and swimming apparel and can cause the fitness system water to foam when the jets are used. Low levels of calcium hardness (soft water) can increase foaming. Although ozone can oxidize soap residual, it may become necessary to add

Foam Inhibitors to suppress the foam. Excessive soap in the water may require a water change to resolve.

• Oxidizers: Ozone and Monopersulfate (MPS) are oxidizers used to prevent the buildup of contaminants, maximize sanitizer efficiency, minimize combined chlorine, and improve water clarity. They are to be used in conjunction with EPA registered sanitizers. The UVC

Ozone system combines the Corona Discharge generator and a UVC lamp. The UVC lamp kills and damages bacteria DNA on contact providing a maximum water sanitation solution. Chlorine-Free Oxidizer,

Monopersulfate (MPS) is a granular oxidizing chemical.

• Sanitizers: Maintaining the recommended residual level of an EPA registered sanitizer at all times will decrease the occurrence of unsafe bacteria and viruses in your fitness system water. The recommended

Free Available Chlorine (FAC), the amount of available chlorine sanitizer, is 1.0-5.0 ppm. A low FAC can allow bacteria and viruses to grow rapidly in the warm water, and a high FAC can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs, and skin. Each sanitizer carries its own instructions regarding how much to use and when to add it to the fitness system water. Consult your dealer for their recommendations and instructions on proper sanitizing of the fitness system.

Watkins recommends the following sanitizer:

• Sodium Dichloro-s-Triazinetrione (sodium dichlor or chlorine)

• Biguanide

• Liquid sodium hypochlorite

WARNING: DO NOT use tri-chlor chlorine, bromo-chloro-dimethylhydantoin (BCDMH), or any type of compressed bromine or chlorine, acid or any type of sanitizer which is not recommended by Watkins

Manufacturing Corporation.

THE ENDLESS POOLS WATER

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

FILLING THE FITNESS SYSTEM WITH

WATER

Use the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter to remove unwanted contaminants such as rust, dirt, detergents, and algae from the fill water. Dissolved metals, copper, iron, and manganese are also removed. Instructions are included with the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter. Always fill the fitness system through the filter compartment. Do not fill your fitness system using water from a swimming pool as pool chemicals are very different from those used in a fitness system and can damage your fitness system.

ADDING CHEMICALS TO THE WATER

All fitness system water chemicals, must always be dispersed directly into the swim area while swim machine is running over 50%, and it must run for a minimum of ten minutes with the covers off.

BUILDING A SANITIZER ROUTINE

During the first month of ownership, measure the sanitizer residual daily in order to establish a baseline of sanitizer needed vs. fitness system usage. Sanitizer needed is the amount of Free Available Chlorine needed to accommodate the number of users and their combined usage time. For example, two fitness system users for twenty minutes every day creates regular demand on the sanitizer that is used to determine how much sanitizer to add in order to maintain the proper residual. If the usage pattern increases dramatically with invited guests, the amount and frequency of sanitizer required will also increase.

Water Quality and Maintenance

PERFORMING SUPER CHLORINATION/

NON-CHLORINE SHOCK TREATMENT

A weekly or monthly super chlorination (1.5 tsp dichlor/250 gal) or shock

(4tbs mps/250 gal) may be required of your chosen sanitation program.

Increasing chlorine to 5 ppm for 24-48 hours removes excess waste and chloramines from the water. Sodium dichlor is 6x stronger than

MPS and may be more appropriate for those users that experience heavy bather load conditions. Operate swim machine and leave the cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the oxidizer gas to vent to prevent damage and discoloration to the cover and pillows after administering a super chlorination or shock to your fitness system. This type of damage is considered chemical abuse and is not covered under the terms of the limited warranty.

IMPORTANT: Always allow the Free Available Chlorine to fall below 5 ppm before using your fitness system.

DANGER: Never leave an open fitness system unattended, especially if there are children present!

USING SILVER ION

Silver ions are introduced into the water via erosion of silver infused beads which inhibits bacteria growth. When combined with MPS, or chlorine, waste is oxidized and removed from the water. It is important to follow the recommended application and maintenance programs outlined for the product’s use. If the fitness system is being used over an extended period of time, such as a whole afternoon or evening, additional sanitizer will be needed. Required: a. One Silver Ion cartridge per 500 gallons.

b. Silver Ion cartridges to be placed inside filter skimmer tray

(maximum of 2 per tray).

c. Weekly Super Chlorinate/Shock the fitness system to reactivate the silver ion cartridge, allow the release of silver ions, and quickly destroy any remaining contaminants. Without this weekly shock treatment, the silver ion cartridge may stop releasing silver ions into the water.

IMPORTANT: Use only Dichlor sanitizer. Silver is not compatible with bromine and biguanides. Don't use a water clarifier. Clarifiers will cause the water to become cloudy.

MANUAL CHLORINE (SODIUM DICHLOR)

Watkins Manufacturing Corporation recommends the use of

Concentrated Chlorinating Granules (sodium dichlor) for sanitizing the water. Sodium dichlor is preferred because it is totally soluble, dissolves quickly, and is nearly pH neutral. The recommended Free Available

Chlorine (FAC), the amount of available chlorine sanitize the fitness system, 1.0-5.0 ppm.

If the FAC is too low: Increase the FAC by adding granulated sodium dichlor.

If the FAC is too high: Allow time to pass and the FAC level will naturally drop over time.

If the fitness system smells of chlorine: super chlorinate or shock the fitness system FAC chlorine does not have an odor whereas combined spent chlorine (chloramines) has a strong chlorine odor that can be eliminated by shocking the water.

IMPORTANT: There are several forms of stabilized chlorine available for use in fitness systems and swimming pools. It is extremely important to choose one specifically designed for fitness systems. Use of an incorrect product such as tri-chlor which has a very low pH (2.6) and dissolves too quickly in hot water, results in extremely high levels of

Water Quality and Maintenance chlorine that WILL cause damage to your fitness system. Use of a liquid or compressed bromine/chlorine or unapproved sanitizer WILL damage your fitness system and is specifically not covered under the terms of the limited warranty.

OZONE PLUS UV-C MAINTENANCE

If the water in your fitness system lacks the clarity you're used to, you find your chemicals increasingly out of balance and your water simply will not be sanitized like it should be then you should ask your technician to test your Ozone Generator and check you UV-C lamp which may need to be replaced.

DANGER: Corrosive condensation may collect in dips or loops in the tubing. DO NOT DRAIN IT. Have an Ozone Technician remove the acidic liquid.

Water chemistry damage is not covered by the warranty. The chemical levels and water quality in the fitness system are under your direct control. With proper basic care, the fitness system will provide many years of water relaxation. If you are unsure about any chemical or its usage in the fitness system, contact your Authorized Dealer, or Watkins

Manufacturing Corporation.

DO:

• Disperse all chemicals slowly into the swim area with the swim machine operating over 50% for ten minutes.

• Use special care if using baking soda to clean either the interior or exterior plastic surfaces.

IMPORTANT: Watkins Manufacturing Corporation DOES NOT recommend the use of any floating chemical dispenser. Damage to the fitness system shell or components caused by a floating chemical dispenser is specifically not covered under the terms of the limited warranty. Floating dispensers can become trapped in one area and cause an over-sanitization or release large chunks of sanitizer that very quickly chemically burn the shell and cover.

DON'T:

• Use compressed sanitizers.

• Use a floater type sanitization system as a low or no maintenance solution to your fitness system maintenance program.

• Use a sanitizer which is not designed for fitness systems.

• Broadcast or sprinkle the chemicals onto the water surface without the swim machine running during chemical additions and any additional 10 minutes after dose. This method may cause chemically-induced fitness system surface blistering (chemical abuse).

VACATION WATER CARE

INSTRUCTIONS

If you plan to be away from home, follow these instructions to ensure that the water quality of your fitness system is maintained:

Page 17

SHORT TIME PERIODS (3-5 DAYS):

1. Adjust the pH by following the instructions outlined in the Water Quality and Maintenance section.

2. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures also listed in the

Water Quality and Maintenance section.

3. Lock your cover in place using the coverlocks.

4. Set Water Care Mode to Away from Home (pg.11).

5. Upon your return, sanitize the water by following the shock procedures, and balance the pH.

LONG TIME PERIODS (5-14 DAYS):

Prior to leaving:

1. At least one day before you leave, set Water Care Mode to Away.

IMPORTANT: Fitness system water oxidizers such as sodium dichlor

(chlorine) maintain their level of effectiveness substantially longer in cool water 59°F (15°C) than in hot water 101°F to 104°F (38°C - 40°C).

2. Adjust the pH as required. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures.

Upon your return:

3. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures. Return the set temperature to its original setting. The fitness system water will be safe for you to use once the Free Available Chlorine residual level has dropped below 5.0 ppm.

IMPORTANT: If you will not be using your fitness system for an extended period of time (in excess of 14 days) and an outside maintenance service

(or neighbor) is not available to assist with the water maintenance, draining or winterizing of the fitness system is recommended.

SUPPLEMENTAL WATER MAINTENANCE

Proper water sanitation and mineral balance (pH control) are absolutely essential for a complete fitness system water maintenance program.

Here are two other popular water additives that are optional:

Mineral Deposit Inhibitors

As water evaporates from your fitness system and new water is added, the amount of dissolved minerals will increase. (Minimize evaporation by keeping the cover on the fitness system whenever possible.) The fitness system water may eventually become “hard” (Calcium Hardness too high) enough to damage the heater by calcifying its surface. Proper pH control can minimize this.

Occasionally, high iron or copper content in the water may produce green or brown stains on the fitness system. A stain and scale inhibitor may help to reduce these metals.

IMPORTANT: Well water may contain high concentrations of minerals.

The use of a low water volume, extra-fine pore water filter (in-line prefilter such as the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter) will help to remove many of the larger particles during the filling of the fitness system. In-line prefilters can be purchased at your local ENDLESS POOLS dealer.

Foam Inhibitors

Fitness system water requires changing due to the buildup of soap in the water. Typically, soap will cause the fitness system water to foam when the jets are used. Soap is introduced into the fitness system water from two sources: users’ bodies, which retain a soap residual after showering, and swimming apparel, which retains soap after washing.

Foam inhibitors can suppress foam, but cannot remove soap from the water. Soap is very difficult to remove from the water because soap is not oxidized by any chemical added to the fitness system. Only ozone can oxidize soap. Eventually the soap build-up in the water will be concentrated, resulting in an unclean feeling on the bather’s skin, which is impossible to remedy. When this occurs, it’s time to drain and refill the fitness system.

GLOSSARY

The following chemical terms are used in this Water Quality and

Maintenance section. Understanding their meaning will help you to better understand the water maintenance process.

Bromamines: Compounds formed when bromine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Unlike chloramines,

Page 18

bromamines have no pungent odor, and are effective sanitizers.

Bromine: A halogen sanitizer (in the same chemical family as chlorine).

Bromine is commonly used in stick, tablet, or granular form however, stick and tablet form should NOT be used.

Calcium Hardness: The amount of dissolved calcium in the fitness system water. This should be approximately 50 -150 ppm. High levels of calcium can cause cloudy water and scaling. Low levels can cause harm to the fitness system equipment.

Chloramines: Compounds formed when chlorine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Chloramines can cause eye irritation as well as having a strong odor. Unlike bromamines, chloramines are weaker, slower sanitizers.

Chlorine: An efficient sanitizing chemical for fitness systems. Watkins

Manufacturing Corporation recommends the use of sodium dichlor-type granulated chlorine. This type is preferred because it is totally soluble and nearly pH neutral.

Chlorine (or Bromine) Residual: The amount of chlorine or bromine remaining after chlorine or bromine demand has been satisfied. The residual is, therefore, the amount of sanitizer which is chemically available to kill bacteria, viruses and algae.

Corrosion: The gradual wearing away of metal and plastic fitness system parts, usually caused by chemical action. Generally, corrosion is caused by low pH or by water with levels of TA, CH, pH or sanitizer which are outside the recommended ranges.

Halogen: Any one of these five elements: fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine.

MPS: Monopersulfate is a non-chlorine oxidizer.

Nitric Acid: The formulation of nitric acid, a highly corrosive chemical, is a byproduct of the ozone generating process. Nitric acid is produced in very small quantities and is readily dissolved in the water stream with ozone.

Oxidizer: The use of an oxidizing chemical is to prevent the buildup of contaminants, maximize sanitizer efficiency, minimize combined chlorine and improve water clarity. See MPS and Ozone.

Ozone: Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent which is produced in nature and artificially by man. Ozone forms no byproducts, oxidizes chloramines, and will not alter the water’s pH.

pH: The measure of the fitness system water’s acidity and alkalinity.

ppm: The abbreviation of “parts per million”, the standard measurement of chemical concentration in water. Identical to mg/l (milligrams per liter).

Reagent: A chemical material in liquid, powder, or tablet form for use in chemical testing.

Sanitizer: Sanitizers are added and maintained at recommended residuals to protect bathers against pathogenic organisms which can cause disease and infection in fitness system water.

Scale: Rough calcium-bearing deposits that can coat fitness system surfaces, heaters, plumbing lines, and clog filters. Generally, scaling is caused by mineral content combined with high pH. Additionally, scale forms more readily at higher water temperatures.

Super-Chlorination: Also known as “shock treatment.” Super-

Chlorination is a process of adding significant doses of a quick dissolving sanitizer (“dichlor” is recommended) to oxidize non-filterable organic waste and to remove chloramines and bromamines.

Total Alkalinity (TA): The amount of bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides present in fitness system water. Proper total alkalinity is important for pH control. If the TA is too high, the pH is difficult to adjust.

If the TA is too low, the pH will be difficult to hold at the proper level. The desired range of TA in fitness system water is 80 to 120 ppm.

aIntenance

Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system is manufactured from the highest quality, most durable materials available. Even so, the fitness system care and maintenance program you develop will ultimately determine how long your fitness system, and its individual components, will last. Regular maintenance and following the advice in this section will help you to protect your investment.

FILTER MAINTENANCE

At least once a week, check and clean the skimmer trays to ensure proper filter flow. Remove leaves, foreign matter, and debris. It is very important to keep your fitness system filter cartridges clean and free of particles to ensure proper water flow. Clean filters enables the hydrotherapy system to function properly and allows for more efficient filter cycles. Depending on how frequently your fitness system is used, we recommend cleaning the fitness system filter cartridges every four weeks. If this is not done, the filter may clog and restrict water flow, which causes improper filtration, poor jet performance and may possibly freeze.

IMPORTANT: The frequency and duration of use, and the number of occupants all contribute to determining the appropriate time between filter cleanings. More use means that more frequent filter cleanings will be required.

FILTER CARTRIDGE REMOVAL AND

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

Place the fitness system in the "Standby" mode, then proceed as follows:

1. Find the filter grate inside the fitness system.

2. Pull the filter grate from the bottom up until it unlocks from the wall.

IMPORTANT: ONLY

PULL FILTER GRATE UP

SLIGHTLY.

3. Pull filter grate away from wall and set aside.

4. Pull skimmer tray away from wall, remove and clean.

5. To remove the filter, turn using the handle in the center of the filter counter-clockwise.

6. Pull filter up, then angle the top away from the filter compartment to pull filter completely out. Each filter has 50 sq. feet of effective filter area.

7. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to remove second filter.

Always clean the filter using a filter degreaser to remove mineral and oil build-up. Simply soak the filter in the degreaser (according to the package directions), then place the filter on a clean surface and spray until clean using a garden hose. It may be necessary to rotate the filter while spraying to remove any debris lodged between the filter pleats.

8. Re-insert filter cartridge by reversing steps 5, 6 & 7.

9. Slide skimmer try back into filter compartment reversing step 4.

10. Position filter grate as seen in step 2 & 3, grate should touch wall of fitness system slightly about black filter equipment compartment tracks. Slide filter grate down until it stops.

Repeat all of the above steps for the filters on the opposite side

NOTE: Replacement filter cartridges are available from your ENDLESS

POOLS dealer. Refer to the back of this manual to determine the appropriate size for your fitness system.

DRAINING YOUR FITNESS SYSTEM

1. Turn off all GFCI breakers in sub-panel, or main electrical panel.

2. Locate the drain valve (bottom, lower right of control panel) for the fitness system.

Pull on handle (Figure 1, pliers may be used to pull handle)

Figure 1 until you reach the mid position then rotate handle slightly to fully extended drain tube (drain cap and 1” of the drain tube is exposed) (Figure 2) then remove the drain cap

(Figure 3).

Handle

Figure 2

NOTE: Do not remove drain cap in mid position. Attach the garden hose to the end of the drain (to avoid flooding of the foundation surrounding the fitness system) making sure not to push the drain tube inward.

Route the outlet of the hose to an appropriate draining area.

Drain Cap with

Handle

Figure 3

NOTE: Fitness system water with a high sanitizer level may harm plants and grass.

Drain

Tube

3. Push the garden hose and drain tube half-way back towards the fitness system (Figure 4) which will start the gravitational flow.

Drain tube must be in the mid position for the fitness system to drain.

IMPORTANT: All models will

Figure 4 drain almost completely through the drain valve. Equipment such as the jet pump and heating system may not completely drain. Any water remaining within the plumbing or equipment after draining will only need to be removed if the fitness system is being winterized.

4. After your fitness system is empty, clean the shell and filter cartridges.

5. Pull and remove garden hose, replace drain cap and push drain tube back into fitness system as seen in Figure 1.

6. Follow the “START-UP PROCEDURES” to refill your fitness system.

PREVENTION OF FREEZING

Your fitness system has been designed and engineered for year-round use in any climate. In some areas, extremely cold temperatures (below

10°F) combined with strong wind, may cause partial freezing of the jet pump, even though the water inside the fitness system remains at the selected temperature. The energy efficiency of the fitness system may also decrease during these cold periods, as the heater will cycle more frequently. As an additional precaution against partial freezing of some of the components, the equipment compartment can be insulated with an insulating kit available from your local dealer. This insulating kit will also help to maximize the fitness system’s energy efficiency.

NOTE: When warmer weather returns (approx. 60°-70°F), the insulating kit must be removed to prevent overheating of the jet pump.

WINTERIZING YOUR FITNESS

SYSTEM

An ENDLESS POOLS fitness system may be used year round, even in colder climates. If you will not be using the fitness system during the winter in an area where freezing is a problem, special consideration must be taken to protect the pool and auxiliary equipment if either is located outside. If you have any questions regarding precautions to take against freezing, please call your ENDLESS POOLS Dealer.

CARE OF THE PILLOWS

The fitness system pillows will provide years of comfort if treated with care. They have been positioned above the water level to minimize the bleaching effects of chlorinated water and other fitness system water chemicals. To extend their life, whenever the fitness system shell is being cleaned, the fitness system pillows should be removed and cleaned. Body oils can be removed with a mild soap and water solution.

ALWAYS rinse off the fitness system pillows thoroughly to remove any soap residue. If the fitness system is not going to be used for a long period of time (that is during a vacation or if the fitness system is winterized), or when the fitness system water is being super-chlorinated, the fitness system pillows should be removed until the next use of the fitness system.

TO REMOVE AND REPLACE THE

PILLOWS:

1. Carefully lift one end of the pillow away from the fitness system shell.

2. Continue lifting one end until all pillow retainers are released from the pillow.

IMPORTANT: Just pulling the pillow straight up and out of the shell recess will eventually damage the pillow. This abuse is not covered under warranty.

3. To reinstall the fitness system pillow, carefully bend the pillow slightly to allow one of the pillow retainers to slip into the recess in the back of the pillow.

4. Keeping the pillow slightly bent, slide the other pillow retainer into the recess in the back of the pillow.

5. After all the pillow retainers are in place, press the pillow down into the recess in the fitness system shell.

Care and Maintenance

CARE OF THE EXTERIOR

FITNESS SYSTEM SHELL

Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has an acrylic shell. Stains and dirt generally will not adhere to your fitness system’s surface. A soft rag or a nylon scrubber should easily remove most dirt. Most household chemicals are harmful to your fitness system’s shell (see below for detailed information on cleaning agents). Always rinse off any fitness system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

IMPORTANT:

1. The following products are the ONLY approved cleaning agents for your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system shell: plain water, Spa Shine,

Brillianize ® or Soft Scrub ® . The use of alcohol or any other household cleaner other than those listed to clean the fitness system shell surface is NOT recommended. DO NOT use any cleaning products containing abrasives or solvents since they may damage the shell surface, specifically: Simple Green ® , Windex ® or Spa Mitt. NEVER

USE HARSH CHEMICALS! Damage to the shell by use of harsh chemicals is not covered under the warranty. Always rinse off any fitness system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

2. Iron and copper in the water can stain the fitness system shell if allowed to go unchecked. Ask your ENDLESS POOLS dealer about a Stain and Scale Inhibitor to use if your fitness system has a high concentration of dissolved minerals. (Watkins recommends Stain &

Scale Defense.)

3. Keep all cleaners out of the reach of children and use care when applying.

FITNESS SYSTEM CABINET

All fitness systems use the exclusive all-climate cabinet designed for years of performance. The unique design is made from a rigid polymer for durability and adds a film finish that provides a rich appearance.

Cleaning consists of simply spraying the cabinet with a mild soap and water solution to remove any stains and residue.

Do not rub the cabinet with an abrasive material or use abrasive cleaners as this may damage its surface.

VINYL COVER (OPTIONAL)

The vinyl cover is an attractive, durable foam insulation product. Monthly cleaning and conditioning are recommended to maintain its beauty.

To clean and condition the vinyl cover without a lifter:

1. Remove the covers from the fitness system and gently lean against a wall or fence.

2. With a garden hose, spray the covers to loosen and rinse away dirt or debris.

3. Using a large sponge and/or a soft bristle brush, and using a very mild soap solution (one teaspoon dishwashing liquid with two gallons of water), or baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), scrub the vinyl top in a circular motion. Do not let the vinyl dry with a soap film on it before it can be rinsed clean.

4. Scrub the cover’s perimeter and side flaps. Rinse clean with water.

5. Rinse off the underside of the cover with water only (use no soap), and wipe it clean with a dry rag.

IMPORTANT: To remove tree sap, use cigarette lighter fluid (not charcoal lighter fluid). Use sparingly, and rinse with a saddle soap solution immediately afterwards, then wipe dry.

HYDRAULIC TANK OIL REPLACEMENT

It is recommended to replace the non-food grade, biodegradable vegetable oil and filter used for both the swim machine and optional treadmill hydraulic units after 500 hours of use. Contact your ENDLESS

POOLS dealer to perform this maintenance.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Your ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has been designed to provide years of trouble-free use. As with any appliance, problems may occasionally occur that require the expertise of a qualified service person. Though such simple repairs as resetting a GFCI switch or breaker, or resetting a high limit thermostat may not require a service call, they may indicate that a more serious condition exists. These conditions may require an experienced service person. Before calling for service, please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide. Always retain your original sales receipt for future reference.

GFCI AND HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT

If your fitness system fails to operate at any time, first check the power supply to the fitness system.

Check each of the GFCI breakers in the subpanel. If a GFCI has tripped, reset it. If it will not reset, this may be an indication of a ground fault

(short circuit) within the electrical components. Contact an Authorized

Service Technician for a complete diagnosis.

If upon checking the GFCI’s you find that they have not tripped, check the house breaker panel and ensure the main breaker for the electrical circuit supplying the fitness system has not tripped. If it has, this is an indication that the circuit was either overloaded or a ground fault exists between the breaker panel and the fitness system receptacle or subpanel. Contact a qualified electrician.

If upon checking the main house breaker and fitness system GFCI’s you find no failures, check the high limit thermostat. To check it, simply turn off power to the fitness system for 30 seconds. This will automatically reset the high limit thermostat if it has tripped. If the fitness system energizes once you turn the power back on, this indicates reduced water flow through the heating system. Tripping of the high limit thermostat is normally a result of one or a combination of these problems. 1) clogged filter cartridge(s), 2) blockage within the system plumbing, 3) a non-functioning heater circulation pump, 4) power was not disconnected from the fitness system before it was drained, 5) an air lock in the plumbing lines. (The Power Indicator on the front of the fitness system’s control panel will also be blinking if the high limit thermostat circuit has tripped.)

If the fitness system does not function after tripping and resetting the GFCI’s or resetting the high limit thermostat, then the problem should be referred to an Authorized Service Technician. Refer to the

Troubleshooting Guide for additional service information.

MISCELLANEOUS SERVICE

INFORMATION

The control and high-limit thermostats are equipped with electronic sensors that are connected to the fitness system’s plumbing. Never cut or kink the wires that connect the sensors to the thermostats within the control box.

The jet pump is equipped with a thermal overload cutoff switch that is designed to protect the pump from overheating. If the pump shuts itself off in an older fitness system, it could indicate failure of the pump motor bearings. If the pump shuts itself off in a new fitness system, it is usually the result of one or a combination of the following factors:

• Thermal overload: Although mass-produced, not all thermal overload cutoffs are exactly the same. Some are more sensitive than others and will shut the pump off at lower temperatures.

Page 22

• High temperature: All ENDLESS POOLS fitness system models are equipped with a jet pump shroud that vents the heat generated by the pump motor to the outside of the equipment compartment, and back into the fitness system water. If the vent is blocked by masonry, grass or debris, overheating of the jet pump may occur. Once the pump motor has cooled sufficiently and any blockage has been removed from the vent opening, the jet pump can be restarted.

• Friction: Sometimes the moving parts of a new pump are tight enough to cause heat build-up due to friction. After a normal break-in period, the pump will run cooler.

• Improper wiring: If the fitness system is connected with an extension cord, and/or the house wiring is undersized, the pump may starve for voltage and therefore may draw more amperage and generate excessive heat.

• If the pump is shutting down due to excessive heat, make sure the equipment compartment has adequate ventilation. The air gap at the bottom must not be blocked. Should your jet pump continue to shut off after short periods of use, contact a qualified service technician.

ACTS INVALIDATING WARRANTY

The limited warranty is void if the ENDLESS POOLS fitness system has been improperly installed, subjected to alteration, misuse, or abuse, or if any repairs on the fitness system are attempted by anyone other than an authorized representative of Watkins Manufacturing

Corporation. Alteration shall include any component or plumbing change, electrical conversion, or the addition of any non-approved sanitation or water purification device or heating system which contributes to component or unit failure or unsafe operating system.

Misuse and abuse shall include any operation of the fitness system other than in accordance with Watkins Manufacturing Corporation printed instructions, or use of the fitness system in an application for which it is not designed; specifically: use of the fitness system in a non-residential application; damage caused by operation* of the fitness system at water temperatures outside the range of 35°F and 120°F; damage caused by a dirty, clogged or calcified filter cartridge; damage to the fitness system surface caused by the use of tri-chloro chlorine,

BCDMH, misuse of chemical tablets in a floater, acid, or any other fitness system chemicals or fitness system surface cleaners which are not recommended by Watkins Manufacturing Corporation; damage caused by allowing undissolved fitness system sanitizing chemicals to lie on the fitness system surface (no fitness system surface material can withstand this kind of abuse); damage to components or fitness system surface caused by improper water chemistry maintenance; and damage to the fitness system surface caused by leaving the fitness system uncovered while empty of water and in direct exposure to sunlight (this may cause solar heating distress in warm weather regions). These are considered abuses and may invalidate this warranty.

*Operation of the fitness system does not mean “use” of the fitness system! Watkins Manufacturing Corporation does not recommend using the fitness system if the water temperature is above or below the fitness system’s control panel temperature range.

TROUBLESHOOTING ERROR CODES

Cause & Solution

An internal hardware error has been detected . Reset the breaker, if the problem persists, call for service.

The system has shut the heater down because the temperature at the heater has reached 119°F (48°C). Do not enter the water!

Remove the cover and allow the water to cool down, then shut power off and power back up again to reset the system.

Temperature inside the equipment compartment is too high, causing the internal temperature in the control box to increase above normal limits. Shut off power, open equipment compartment and allow area to cool. Close equipment compartment and repower once compartment has cooled down.

The system does not detect any water flow while the primary pump is running. Check and open water valves. Check for water level.

Clean filter. If the problem persists, call for service.

A problem is detected with the temperature probe. Call for service.

The water temperature in the fitness system has reached 108°F (42°C). Do not enter the water! Remove the cover and allow the water to cool down to a lower temperature. Call for service if problem persists.

No low-level configuration software has been installed into the system. Call for service.
