manufacturer’s directions
carefully.
1. Before using your
Perform-Max Sanitizer, you
must first balance your pool
water. Take a water sample
to your local pool
professional or use a
complete test kit that will
test for the following
important elements.

Water Balance Guidelines
5. Do not add shock in or
near the skimmer or into the
Perform-Max as it could
damage equipment, risk
potential explosion or discolor
your pool surface.
MAX
6. Finally, at the beginning
of the season, add a stabilizer
or conditioner to the pool to
prevent chlorine burn off.
Follow manufacturer’s
directions carefully.
Perform-Max Installation
The Perform-Max comes in several different models. Please
review this list, determine which model you have and follow
the appropriate installation instructions for that model only.
Installation Tips
¥ Do not plumb into copper pipe as corrosion will occur.
¥ By installing a flow indicating device on the inlet line,
you can monitor the gallons per minute.
¥ Follow manufacturer s directions for installation of the flow
indicating device.

Isolating the Perform-Max by installing a corrosion resistant
check valve is recommended to protect the equipment and
prevent discoloration of pool surface.
For Proper Performance
1) Make sure back pressure Is between 3
and 8 psi.
Higher back pressures result in over chlorination. Lower back
pressures result in under chlorination. Adjust eye ball fittings
in the return jets to a larger size to decrease back pressure
or smaller size to increase back pressure.

8. For proper initial setting
continue to next section:
Setting Control Dial.
Setting Control Dial
When using slow dissolving trichlor, the Perform-Max should be operated
based on its normal erosion design where only the bottom layer of tablets are
wetted. This provides better controllability and longer lasting sanitation per
refill. When using bromine, the Perform-Max should be operated as a soaking
feeder as this chemical works best when all tablets are wetted. Therefore
bleeding the air by unscrewing the cap knob is recommended.
TROUBLESHOOTING: Begin with Option 1 for each
situation and continue with other options as necessary.
Contact your dealer or King Technology s Customer Service
Dept. at 800-222-0169, if the steps below do not solve the
situation.
