EUROPEAN WIRING
WARNING - Risk of electric shock
Blue Diamond pumps are self priming pumps designed to quickly and efficiently
remove condensed water from refrigeration and air conditioning systems where
gravity drainage is not practical.

IMPORTANT NOTE
This unit must be earthed, and the
supply should be fused.

Connect the discharge tube of the pump to a suitable drainage system using the hose clip supplied.
A stepped adaptor is also supplied to convert various tube diameters.
Leave sufficient space around the pump unit to allow for cooling. When all other installation tasks
have been completed, connect the mains cable (Live, Neutral and Earth) to a suitable mains supply.
The mains supply should be fused (see table).

Choose to use either the top or side IN & OUT connections and fit blanking plugs to the unused ports.
Connect the reservoir outlet to the inlet of the pump & the flexible condensate inlet to the condensate
tray hose. The reservoir is fitted with a vent tube, which must remain unblocked with the free end
secured above the full level of the condensate drip tray. Ensure the reservoir assembly is secured in a
VERTICAL position using the screws supplied.

The pumps are operated by either full reservoir sensing with zero volt alarm output,
the hot & cold thermistor sensor or DrainStik™ with zero volt alarm output
(recommended).

Placement of the pump - Ensure that the pump is not more than A above the condensate outlet, and not more
than B below the desired drainage point for the pump outlet. The pump can be mounted in any orientation
but must be kept DRY. (See performance chart for A & B).

(2011 onwards cooling signal) option allows the pump to run
continuously. When powered from the same source as the air
handler the pump will switch on/off with the unit.

To ensure that the alarm connection is working, restrict the outlet of the reservoir/DrainStik™ hose
and fill with water up to the high level sensor. The pump will turn on intially, then after a short delay
the alarm relay will switch, detected using a multimeter or observing the shut down of the AC
unit. Allow the water to exit the reservoir; the water should then be pumped away, and AC operation
will restart.

SAFETY WARNING
Be sure that the power to the unit is disconnected before installing,
servicing or removing any component.
Do not store or install the pump in a damp environment.
The unit must not be placed outside, immersed in water or exposed
to frost. All existing collection elements and fittings should be
thoroughly cleaned before installing. Do not install if damaged.

The operational test ensures that the pump responds to the water level & that the pump switches
off when dry. To test, slowly pour cold water into the tray until the pump switches on. Allow the
pump to run and switch off. The pump should run for approximately 20 seconds after emptying the
reservoir/condensate tray pipe.

Important Note
Before Running, Ensure:
The condensate tray is free from debris.
The mains supply is fused.
The inlet & outlet of the pump are connected correctly.
All tubing is watertight and kink free.

5. Commissioning & Test
Gently warm the RED sensor until it is approximately 8°C warmer than the BLUE sensor and the pump
will turn on. Allow the red sensor to cool. The pump will turn off again when the RED & BLUE sensors are
within 2°C of each other. This could take several minutes.

1. Hot & Cold sensor Installation
Position the red sensor in a suitable place at ambient air temperature. It is recommended that ceiling
voids are avoided as these are usually at much higher temperatures. Then place the blue sensor in the
path of the air flow from the air conditioning unit.

1. Sensor Installation
Insert the sensor into the condensate tray pipe as shown and secure the hose in position. Follow the
recommendations below to ensure correct positioning:
- The DrainStik™ must be mounted vertically.
- The end of the DrainStik™ must be mounted at least 10mm above the top of the ‘U’-bend.
- The top of the DrainStik™ body must be mounted below the condensate tray.
- Remove any pipe insulation down to the level of the end of the DrainStik™ or use the silicon
hose provided.

2. Connections
Mount the pump as required and position the suction hose and sensor lead in the desired location.
Trim off excess hose and bunch excess cable with a cable tie (provided). Connect the hose to the
pump inlet and sensor lead to the pump. Use cable ties to secure the hose and cable so that the
pump can not be accidentally disconnected. See parts 2 and 3 of reservoir installation for details of
pump outlet connections and volt free alarm connections.
3. Commissioning & Test
Refer to part 4 of reservoir installation for commissioning and test instructions.
