IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
READ AND FOLLOW ALL
INSTRUCTIONS.
2. WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury, do not
1.
permit children to use this product unless they are closely supervised at all times.
3.
CAUTION - This pump is for use with permanently
installed pools and may also be used with hot tubs and spas if
06/02
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 storage pool is constructed so that it may be readily disassembled
for storage and reassembled to its original integrity and has a
maximum wall height of 42 inches (1.07m).
4. Do not install within an outer enclosure or beneath the skirt of a
hot tub or spa unless so marked.
5.
SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS.

INSTALLATION & OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL
NOTE:
Your AQUA-FLO pump has been quality built and engineered to give
maximum efficiency under normal water pumping conditions. Consult the manufacturer for any other applications.
LOCATION OF PUMP
For best pump performance, locate the system as close to the water
source as possible. Provide adequate access around the pump for
inspection and maintenance. Place pump on a firm level surface.
Pump need not be bolted down unless required by local code.
PUMP CONNECTIONS
Suction line from pool (skimmer and main drain) must be connected
to inlet at Hair and Lint Trap. Discharge line to pool (return lines) must
be connected to Outlet at top of pump via filter. If pump is installed
below water level of pool, install valves on the inlet and outlet piping to
permit removing of equipment without draining the pool.
CAUTION: During the pressure test procedure, this pump is under
pressure. DO NOT LOOSEN lock handles while pump is running or
until all pressure is released. Tighten lock handles securely by hand
only. Raise pressure slowly. Do not exceed 50 psi. Extreme care
must be taken during pressure test. Failure to follow these instructions explicitly can result in personal injury.
PRIMING PUMP
At initial start-up, pump must be primed by filling hair and lint trap with
water. To prime pump, remove cover from hair and lint trap: fill pump
and suction trap with water. Replace cover (make sure the o-ring is in
place) and tighten lock handles. Pump will now prime, with priming
time depending upon lift and horizontal distance of suction piping.
CAUTION: Do not remove hair and lint strainer lid while pump is
running or under pressure! Lid is held in place by lock handles which
can be removed or tightened by hand. Basket must be kept clear of
leaves and debris at all times.
REMOVING BASKET
1.) Turn off motor. 2.) Remove lid. 3.) Remove basket and empty
debris. 4.) Replace basket, fill with water, replace lid securely to prevent air from entering and tighten. DO NOT USE TOOLS. 5.) Turn on
motor. 6.) Open air-relief valve on top of filter until steady stream of
water comes out.
If pump is installed below water level of pool, close return
and suction lines prior to opening hair and lint pot. Make sure to reopen valves prior to operating.
DO NOT RUN PUMP DRY!
Always maintain proper water level in pool. If water level falls below
skimmer intake, pump will suck air. Pump is equipped with a maintenance-free, heavy-duty mechanical seal. Damage will occur if pump
runs dry, and warranty will be voided.
TO PREVENT FREEZING
Drain liquid from pump through plug at bottom section of volute. It is
recommended to apply a good rust inhibitor into liquid end to prevent
corrosion. Be sure motor is kept dry and covered. In mild climate
area, when freezing may occur, run pump and filter equipment continuously to prevent freezing.
MOTOR
Your pump is equipped with a permanently lubricated, maintenancefree, heavy-duty industrial quality motor especially designed to withstand the heavy-duty requirements of swimming pool application.
Wiring connection must agree with incoming line voltage. Improper
wiring can cause serious injuries and damage to the motor, voiding
warranty.
NOTE:
Your motor is designed to withstand the effects of normal
rainfall. To increase the life of your motor, observe the following:
1.)
2.)
3.)
4.)
5.)
6.)
7.)
Do not flood motor or submerge in water. To do so voids warranty.
Provide ample cross ventilation, minimum of 6” at all points.
Keep motor and surrounding area clean.
Avoid sweeping or stirring dust near motor while it is running.
Avoid storing or spilling dry chemicals, powders, etc., near motor.
Provide protection against the elements.
Locate motor on a slight elevation so water will drain away from
motor.
8.) Avoid spilling or dripping liquid chemical on or near motor.
9.) Avoid splashing water or hosing deck near motor. Water damage
voids warranty.
For replacements, contact your local supplier or authorized service
man.
WARNING - All electrical wiring of the motor installation must be done by a qualified electrician in accordance with applicable
electrical codes. Before working on any motor, be certain that the source of electrical power is off at the main junction box.
BONDING WIRE - Upon installation of the pump, the motor must be bonded with a No. 8 AWG solid copper conductor per
National Electrical Code. The connection should be from the accessible wire connector on the motor to all metal parts of the
swimming pool, spa or hot tub structure and to all electrical equipment, metal conduit, and metal piping within 6 feet (1.5 m) of
the inside walls of a swimming pool, spa or hot tub, when the motor is installed within 5 feet of the inside walls of the swimming
pool, spa, or hot tub.
NOTE: For electrical connections, see wiring diagram on motor rating plate.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
If pump loses prime, or if too many bubbles come through return line, check:
1.) Hair and lint pot cover is tight and o-ring is in place and free from
defects.
2.) Valves on suction and return lines are working properly and open.
3.) Water level in pool is too low.
4.) Filter o-ring or gasket is in place and free from defects.
5.) All fittings and connections are secure and air tight.
3.) Thermal protector in motor tripped. Allow motor to cool, then try to
restart.
Motor makes humming noise but won’t start, check:
1.) Make sure motor shaft turns free.
2.) Jammed impeller or an obstruction in (volute) casing.
3.) Low voltage and undersized wire.
Motor overheating and cycling on and off, check:
Not pumping water, check:
1.) Filter pressure gauge reading too high, indicating filter needs cleaning.
2.) Clogged plumbing lines.
3.) Impeller adjustment incorrect. Adjust impeller .015 inches from
face of volute.
4.) Worn or damaged impeller.
Motor does not run, check:
1.) Circuit breakers.
2.) Incorrect or loose wire connections.
1.) Incorrect or loose wire connections.
2.) Low voltage supply (frequently caused by undersized wire.)
3.) Make sure the motor gets a fresh air supply and the vents are kept
unclogged.
Noises, check:
1.)
2.)
3.)
4.)
Plumbing vibration.
Impeller turns freely and is properly adjusted.
Motor bearings.
For cavitation, due to obstruction in or undersized suction line.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOUNTING
LIQUID END TO MOTOR
STEP 1
Remove pump and motor from their boxes and check for any possible shipping damage.
STEP 2
Place motor vertically with shaft end up, being careful not to damage motor end bell. Remove shaft key on
motor if installed.
STEP 3
Install Liquid End to motor by placing the pump shaft onto the motor shaft and aligning the pump shaft set
screws with the motor shaft keyway. Align pump bracket holes with threaded holes on motor and install four
3/8”-16 hexbolts and tighten with 9/16” wrench.
STEP 4
Place assembled pump in its normal position, on the pump base. To adjust impeller, place screwdriver on the
pump shaft as shown, and gently pry pump shaft towards motor .015 inches and tighten one set screw with
1/8” Allen wrench. Rotate shaft to check if impeller is clear. If impeller is clear, tighten all set screws firmly. If
impeller is not clear, loosen set screw and adjust impeller further until it rotates freely.
(See illustration below.)
STEP 5
The pump is now ready for installation.
