Application
O nga SMH Series pumps are suitable for pumping clean water in a
domestic water system, small irrigation applications, and as pressure
booster pumps. The strength of the stainless steel pump casing coupled
with the impervious nature of the technopolymer impeller and diffuser
make it ideally suited for most potable water pumping applications.
NOTE: Consult your Onga dealer for information regarding the suitability of
each SMH pump in an automatic pressure system prior to installation.
5
Installation
The electrical installation shall be in accordance with the national
wiring rules (AS/NZS 3000) for class 1, IP44 rated products.
These instructions are a guide only. Users not familiar with
pumping equipment should seek advice from people experienced
in pump equipment and installation.
Freezing conditions will damage the unit, because when water
freezes it expands. Ensure that the pump is located so that it is
not prone to freezing, or ensure that the product is disconnected
and dried of water during cold conditions.
SMH pumps are electrically connected. Ensure that they are
switched off and unplugged from socket outlet during installation
and any subsequent service work.
The pump is designed to be used with clean water in a residential
application. Do not use it with alternative fluids, abrasive,
corrosive or explosive fl uids. Do not install or operate your pump
in an explosive environment or near combustible matter.
Incorrectly installed or tested equipment may fail, causing severe
injury or property damage.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high temperatures. To
reduce risk of fi re, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter
to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling
the motor, let it cool for at least 20 minutes before trying to work
on it. Automatic thermal overload cut-out protects the motor for
heat damage during operation and it will restart without notice
when the motor cools down.
The pump is not intended for use by young children or infirm
persons without supervision. Young children should be supervised
to ensure that they do not play with the pump.
Read the following instructions in this owner’s manual when installing and
operating equipment.

1. Preparation for Installation
Inspect your pump for shipping damage. Report any damage to your Onga
stockist. Make sure the suction piping is free of air leaks and is laid so that
there can be no airlocks.
Warranty of these pumps is void unless they are operated in accordance with
this owner’s manual.
2. Pump Protection
The pump should be protected from the weather, floods, chemicals, dust,
vermin, insects etc. It is highly recommended that the pump be housed in a
weather proof, well vented enclosure. If the pump is not adequately housed
the warranty may be deemed void.
3. Pipe Installation
Pumps can be damaged if care is not taken when connecting pipes. Pipes
should be supported so that the pump casing is not strained by the weight
or misalignment.
We recommend the pump and pipe are coupled using fl exible type polythene
pipe, rubber hose or a multi-directional barrel union. This union coupling can
also be used to remove the pump for service should it be necessary without
having to cut pipes.
Pipe fi ttings should be carefully screwed onto the pump making sure not to
cross-thread or overtighten. We recommend the use of a moulded pipe fi tting
to connect to the pump as this avoids possible damage to the pump threads
and unnecessary replacement of parts.
For best results use teflon tape to join seal joint. Satisfactory sealing can be
achieved by hand tightening fittings ensuring that no leaks are evident once
under pumping pressure.
4. Locating the Pump
Find a location for your pump as close to your water source as possible.
Ensure that this location is on a seperate footing from your home. To do this
you can mount the pump on a concrete tile or concrete base.
5. Power Source
Arrange for an electrician to install an outdoor 10A GPO electrical outlet near
the pump if there is not one there already.
7
6. Suction
This is the most important part of the installation as errors will cause significant
problems for the system in performance and longevity.
IMPORTANT: A gate valve must be installed at the tank outlets.

To maintain optimum performance from your pump, the suction pipe should
be:
Kept to the shortest distance practical, but not shorter than
therecommendedlength.
Re-enforced crush resistant (non-collapsable) hose or pipe.
All fittings should be air tight.
Pipes should be equal to or larger than the diameter of the
suction/inletport.
Ensure that the suction is completely submerged.
In-line strainers/filters are only recommended for pumps fi tted with Minipress,
PressControl or WaterSwitch. Regular maintenance is required to keep them
clean and provide maximum pump pressure.
Consult your Onga dealer for information regarding the suitability of each
SMH pump in an automatic pressure system prior to installation.
7. Discharge
The length and diameter of the discharge hoses/pipes will affect the pressure
and fl ow rate at which your pump operates. Pressure ratings of all components
must exceed the maximum pressure of the pump by an appropriate safety
factor. All pipework should be supported independently of the pump.
8. Pump Priming
Ensure that there is at least 200mm of water in your tank, (i.e. that the tank
outlet is covered, and the pump will not draw any air into the system). Open the
gate valve on the tank. Check for any leaks, and repair these if necessary.
If no leaks are present, remove the priming plug to open the priming port on
the top of the pump case.
If the tank is above the level of the pump, water will start to run out of this
port. Replace the priming plug carefully. Your pump is now ready to run.
(Note: If a check valve is installed in the suction line, water may not fill the
pump. If this occurs, follow the instructions below).
If the tank water level is below the level of the pump, you will need to fill the
pump body and suction line. Remove the priming plug and fi ll the pump body
and suction line using a funnel.
9. Electrical
The pump is supplied with a interconnection appliance coupler and standard
Australian 10 Ampere plug and cord. Connection to the power supply is a
9
matter of inserting the plug into the suitable socket outlet. Before plugging
the power supply cord into the socket outlet, connect the pump to it using the
provided IEC appliance connectors on the end of the interconnection cords.
Ensuring there are no water traces on the connectors push them fi rmly into
each other to ensure intended splash (water) proof protection. This connection
shall be separated again only for service purpose and only after the power
supply is removed by unplugging the cord from the socket outlet.
The socket outlet shall be in a dry and fl ood free location; preferably do not
use extension cords for this very reason and because they can cause voltage
drop.
WARNING
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn, or
cause death.
Supply voltage outside limits specified in Model
Data can cause motor overheat leading to overload
tripping, reduced component life or seriously
damage pump and voids warranty.
We recommend, for additional protection, the
pump to be supplied from socket outlet protected
by a residual current device – RCD (also known as
an Earth Leakage Circuit breaker – ELCB) with a
maximum rated residual current of 30mA.
10
Operation
The pump operator or owner must be provided with this owner’s
manual. This must be read before operation, and followed during
operation.
Ensure that your pump is fi lled with water before operating.
The pump is designed to be used with clean water in a residential
application. Do not use it with alternative fluids, specifically
abrasive, corrosive or explosive fl uids. Do not install or operate
your pump in an explosive enviroment or near combustible
matter.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high temperatures. To
reduce risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter
to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling
the motor, let it cool for at least 20 minutes before trying to work
on it. Automatic thermal overload cut-out protects the motor for
heat damage during operation and it will restart without notice
when the motor cools down.
1. Start-up / Operation
Ensure you have primed the pump correctly. (Instructions on priming the pump
can be found in the installation section under Point 8. Priming Pump).
Note: If the pump is not used for a long period of time, repeat the priming
procedure before start up.
Start the pump and check rotation of the motor. It rotates in a clockwise
direction when viewing the fan through the cowl behind the motor.
11
2. D.R.O.P (Dry Running Over-Temperature Protection)
The Onga SMH series of pumps (excluding the SMH35) are fitted with the
internationally patented D.R.O.P system which protects the hydraulic parts
from possible damage that can be caused by overheating of the liquid inside
the pump casing.
The overheating can be the result of external causes (outside the pump) or
occurs because the pump stops priming and as water is pumped out the
pump runs dry.
The D.R.O.P system is reset using the switch located on the condenser
box.
3. Restoring Operation
Set the switch to “O”, unplug unit from power outlet. Remove cause of
malfunction.
Wait a few minutes, allowing all the hydraulic parts to cool down.
Set the switch on the “1”, plug the unit into power outlet. The red light
goes off and the pump starts operating. If the red light remains on, turn the
switch to “O”, unplug the unit, wait a few minutes and repeat the start up
procedures.
12
Service and Maintenance
Pump should only be serviced only by qualified personel. For
best results, use only genuine service parts. Be sure to prime
pump before starting.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to
pump and remove plug from outlet before attending the pump.
RCD tripping indicates an electrical problem. If RCD trips and will
not reset have a qualifi ed electrician inspect and repair electrical
system and/or pump.
If service is required to the power supply cord and/or appliance
connectors, they must be replaced with the specialised cord
assemblies by Pentair Water service agent or similarly qualified
personnel in order to avoid a hazard.
Liquid may be HOT, release pressure with care before
servicing.
1. General Care and Maintenance
Under normal conditions the Onga SMH series of pumps requires only minimal
attention.
In order to prevent possible failures, it is advisable to periodically check the
pressure supplied and power absorption. A decrease in pressure is a symptom
of wear. An increase current absorpion is a sign of abnormal mechanical
function in the pump and/or motor.
