7. Do not bury cord. Locate cord to minimize abuse from lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and other equipment.
8. The unit is provided with a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). To test the GFCI, push the test button. The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button.
Power should be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the GFCI is defective. If the GFCI interrupts power to the pump without the test button being
pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this pump. Disconnect the pump and have the problem corrected by
a qualified service representative before using.
9. The Filter Pump is to be assembled by an adult; care should be taken in the unpacking and assembly of the Filter Pump, this pool may contain accessible
potentially hazardous sharp edges or sharp points that are a necessary part of the function of the Filter Pump.
10. If a drain or suction outlet cover is missing or broken, do not use the pool. Suction can cause body part entrapment, hair and jewelry entanglement, evisceration,
or drowning. Repair or replace the drain or suction outlet cover before allowing the pool to be used.. During nighttime pool use, artificial lighting shall be used to
illuminate all safety signs, ladders, steps, deck surfaces and walks.
11. The floor of the pool shall be visible at all times from the outside perimeter of the pool.
12. Post a list of emergency telephone numbers such as the nearest available police, fire, ambulance and/or rescue unit. These numbers are to be kept near the
telephone, which is closest to the pool.
13. Basic lifesaving equipment, including one of the following should be on hand at all times:
• A light, strong, rigid pole (shepherds crook) not less than twelve feet (12’) [366 cm] long.
• A minimum one-fourth inch (1/4”) [6.35 mm] diameter rope as long as one and one half (1-1/2) times the maximum width of the pool or fifty feet (50’) [15.24 meters],
whichever is less, which has been firmly attached to a Coast Guard-approved ring buoy having an outside diameter of approximately fifteen inches (15”) [38.1 cm],
or similarly approved flotation device.
14. Pool shall be located at a minimum distance of 6 ft (1.83 m) from any receptacle, and all 125-volt 15- and 20-ampere receptacles located within 20 ft (6.0 m) of the
pool shall be protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI), where distances are by measuring the shortest path the supply cord of an appliance connected
to the receptacle would follow, without piercing a floor, wall, ceiling, doorway with hinged or sliding door, window opening, or other effective permanent barrier, to
the inside wall of the pool.
Circulation Systems
1. Installers shall follow written instructions regarding positioning of all equipment connected to the circulation systems.
2. The installer shall follow written instruction provided for operation of the circulation system components.
3. All circulation system components and pump that require replacement or servicing shall be installed according to the pump’s instruction manual.

Chemicals
For safety sake, ensure the deepest part of the pool is always visible. The user must properly maintain clarify of the pool water at all time. Check the pH and chlorine
levels periodically and make sure they are within the recommended limits. Additional water treatment chemicals might be needed from time to time. Have the water
sample tested by a local pool supply store to determine if additional chemical is needed. Turn on the filter pump system for at least six hours per day. Clean and replace
filter cartridge frequently. Replace only with genuine Polygroup® / Summer Wave™ Brand filter cartridge. Refer to the Filter Pump manual for additional water care
information.
Entrapment Risk
1. Entrapment Avoidance: There shall be no protrusions or other obstruction in the swimming area, which may cause entrapment or entanglement of the user. If
a suction outlet cover is missing or broken, do not use the pool. Suction can cause body part entrapment, hair and jewelry entanglement, evisceration, or drowning.
Repair or replace the suction outlet cover before allowing the pool to be used.
2. DANGER! TO AVOID SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH, CLOSE THE POOL OR SPA TO BATHERS IF ANY SUCTION OUTLET COVER/GRATE IS MISSING,
BROKEN OR INOPERATIVE.
3. Never play or swim near drains or suction fittings. Your body or hair may be trapped causing permanent injury or drowning.
4. Never enter the pool or spa if a suction fitting or drain cover is loose, broken, or missing.
5. Immediately notify the pool/spa owner or operator if you find a drain cover loose, broken or missing.
Drowning Risk
1. Keep unsupervised children from accessing the pool by installing fencing or other approved barrier around all sides of pool. State or local laws or codes may require
fencing or other approved barriers. Check state or local laws and codes before setting up pool.

PUMP MOTOR PROTECTION
IMPORTANT! Your filter pump is protected by a thermal switch. The switch senses the temperature of the filter pump. If it gets too hot, the switch will stop the pump from
running until it cools off. It will automatically turn back on when the filter pump has cooled down. This is a safety device to prevent pump damage and prolong service
life. If your pump is automatically turning off, it is because of high pool water temperature and/or low water flow through the pump. If this happens you need to check the
water flow and correct it if needed, as this filter pump uses the water flow for cooling. You may also want to run the pump at night when the temperature is lower.
POOL MAINTENANCE
BACKWASH
CLOSED
WASTE
1. BACKWASH the sand bed when the pressure reading is 1-1.5 bar (14.5 - 21.8 Psi) above the nitial presssure; or, BACK WASH the sand bed at least once TWO weeks.
2. Discard all the sand at the end of the season, wash the pump components, sand tank and 6-port valve thoroughly with freash water before storage. Fill up with new
sand at the beginning of the swimming season.
3. Check and adjust pH and chlorine levels daily using required chemicals. See below Section of “POOL WATER CARE”.
4. Check filter pump output daily. If flow is reduced, see below Section of “TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE”.
5. Check filter pump, hoses, fitting for leaks. If a leak is found, see below Section of “TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE”.
6. Check seams in pool periodically. Minor repairs may be made with the repair patch kit (supplied with pool). Additional patches are available from Polygroup® or your
local pool supply store.
POOL WATER CARE
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
1. Make sure all the Hoses 13 14 are secured to the fittings on the pump and pool.
2. Always press down the 6-port Valve Handle 20 before switching position.
3. Always turn off the pump power when switching position.
4. It is critical to the backwash the sand before using the pump to clean the pool water. This will
prevent fine sand to flow into the pool and also wash off any dirt or debris within the sand.
5. Make sure the power switch is at the “OFF” position. Plug the GFCI Power Cord Set 21 to
a grounded power outlet.
6. IMPORTANT: To stand the filter pump, press the RESET button on the GFCI Power Cord Set 21 .
7. Fill the pool until the water level reaches the pool fill line.
8. Follow the following steps to BACKWASH the sand before first use:
• Remove the 6-Port Valve Drain Outlet Cap 11 from the 6-Port Valve 10 . (Optionally, a
1.5” [38mm] hose can be connected to the drain port to direct the waste water to a nearby drain.)
POWER SWITCH
• Press down the 6-Port Valve Handle 20 and turn to the “BACKWASH” position.
• Turn on the power of the Pump 17 .
• Pool water is now circulating backward through the sand bed
to the drain outlet. Continue BACKWASH until the drain water
12
becomes clean and clear.
How to use the GFCI plug
• Turn off the Pump 17 and switch the handle to the “RINSE” position.
Turn on the Pump 17 for ONE minute, this will clean up and
Press
level out the sand bed. Turn off the Pump 17 when done.

when the sand bed is clean.
10. BACKWASH the tank when the pressure is 1-1.5 bar (14.5 - 21.8 Psi) above the
initial pressure. Or, BACKWASH the sand filter once every TWO weeks to
maintain water cleaniness.

1. The following items are required and readily available from your local pool supply store:
• TEST KIT - Used to check chlorine and pH levels.
• 1” CHLORINE TABLETS - Used to disinfect pool water and help control the growth of algae.
Chlorine Tablets
• pH CONTROL CHEMICALS - Used to adjust pH levels Up (Soda Ash) or Down (Acid).
• ALGAECIDES - Used to eliminate algae.
• SUPERCHLORINATOR - Used to destroy combined chlorine, ammonia, nitrogen, and organic compounds.
• LEAF NET with handle - Used to remove leaves, trash, insects, etc. from pool.
• CHLORINE DISPENSER (available in most pool supply store).
2. Use test kit daily to check pH and chlorine levels. Adjust accordingly using the required chemicals.
NOTE: Excessive levels of chlorine or low pH levels will damage pool liner.
3. The pool can be cleaned using a garden hose powered vacuum from Polygroup® or a pool supply store.
4. Using a foot bath near the pool to wash off your feet prior to entering the pool will assist in keeping the pool clean.
5. Well water often presents special problems with water chemistry. If you must use well water, take a sample to
your local pool chemical supplier for analysis before adding ANY chemicals.
6. Refer to the POOL’s USER MANUEL for the capacity of your pool. You will need this information to determine
the amount of chemicals you will need to correct the pool water.
NOTE: It is recommended to use a 5 gallon bucket of water to mix and dissolve your chemicals and then applying directly to the pool water. Follow manufacturers
label directions on all chemicals.
• Most pool supply stores will test your pool water for free and advise you of what chemicals you need, and the correct amount to use for your pool. You will need to
tell them the pool capacity in gallons.
7. IMPORTANT: We cannot over-stress the importance of proper and adequate daily chemical treatment. Chlorine and pH levels must be properly maintained at all
times. PUMP AND FILTER ALONE WILL NOT PREVENT ALGAE FROM GROWING IN POOL WATER; THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE BY MAINTAINING PROPER
CHLORINE AND pH LEVELS AT ALL TIMES.
• Maintain pH level between 7.3 and 7.8.
• Maintain chlorine level between 1.0 and 1.6 ppm (parts per million).
• Superchlorinate your pool at least every other week.
NOTE:
1. Hot weather/heavy use may require pH and chlorine levels to be maintained on the upper side of the scale and superchlorination of the pool every week.
2. Using a pool cover and/or solar cover will assist in maintaining your pH and chlorine levels by reducing the amount of evaporation from your pool.
CAUTION: Concentrated chlorine levels and low pH levels will damage pool. You must follow the instructions for the pool chemicals you use, as to quantity and
recommended usage. NEVER drop lumps or pellets of chemicals in pool; this may present a hazard to swimmers and/or damage your liner.
