Only qualified, licensed personnel should install pump. 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. The pump is electrically connected. Ensure that it is isolated from electrical supply during installation and any subsequent service work. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety 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 fluids. 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 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. A thermal overload switch protects the motor from heat damage during operation. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, it’s service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard Children should be supervised do ensure they do not play with the appliance PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION Inspect your pump, ensuring that it is well packaged and has not been damaged in transport. If the pump is damaged, report it to the Reece branch where the pump was purchased. Make sure the suction piping is completely air tight and is laid so that there can be no air locks. Warranty of these pumps is void unless they are operated in accordance with these instructions. PUMP PROTECTION The pump should be protected from the weather, floods, chemicals, dust, vermin and insects. It is recommended that the pump be housed in a weather proof, well vented enclosure. VADA - V110-H GENERAL INSTALLATION 1. Fitting an Auto Pressure Control or Mains Water Switch Over Device If you are using a Vada Auto Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device with your pump, connect it either directly to the top of the pump or in a suitable position in line with the delivery piping. For further instructions on connecting these devices, please refer to the manual supplied with your unit. Ensure that the power lead remains disconnected until you have completed the installation process. 2. Locating the Pump Find a location for your pump as close to your water source as possible. Ensure that this location is stable, dry and on a separate footing from your home. To do this you can mount the pump on a concrete base. 3. Power Source Arrange for an electrician to install a 10A weatherproof outdoor power point near the pump if there is not one there already. 4. Suction This is the most important part of the installation as errors will cause significant problems for the system in performance and longevity. A gate valve must be installed at the water source outlet. To maintain optimum performance from your pump, the suction pipe should be: • • • • • • Kept to the shortest length practical. Re-enforced crush resistant (non-collapsible) hose or pipe. All fittings should be air tight. Pipes should be equal to or larger than the diameter of the suction/inlet port. When pumping from a well/pit etc. a foot valve should be installed on the suction pipe. Optional: Fitted with a suction Strainer/Filter* *In-line strainers/filters are only recommended for pumps fitted with a Vada Auto Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device. Regular maintenance is required to keep them clean and provide maximum pump pressure. 5. Discharge The length and diameter of the discharge hoses/pipes will affect the pressure and flow 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 pipe work should be supported independently of the pump. If you want to test that the pump is operating correctly prior to having the plumbing connected, attach a hose with a trigger nozzle to the top of the pump or the connected discharge hoses/pipes. 6. 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 water source. 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. • 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 fill the pump body and suction line using a funnel. VADA - V110-H ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. The pump must be supplied by an outlet protected by a residual current device or earth leakage circuit breaker with a maximum rated residual current of 30mA The pump is supplied with: • A fixed cable featuring a weatherproof IEC socket • A separate power cable which features a weatherproof IEC plug and a standard Australian 10 amp plug. If connecting directly to a power outlet, simply connect the two supplied cords using the IEC socket and plug. If you are installing a Vada Auto Pressure Control or a Mains Water Switch Over Device, connect the IEC socket from the pump to the IEC plug cord on the device. Ensuring there are no water traces on the connectors push them firmly 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 form the socket outlet. The socket outlet shall be in dry and flood free location; preferably do not use extension cords for this very reason and because they can cause voltage drop. 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. For additional protection, the pump must be supplied from an 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. 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 filled with water before operating. 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. A thermal overload switch protects the motor for heat damage during operation. DO NOT RUN PUMP DRY Ensure that your pump is primed 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 fluids. Do not install or operate your pump in an explosive enviroment or near combustible matter. START-UP/OPERATION Open all valves in the suction and discharge lines. When the power is turned on, the pump will start to pump water. Without an Auto Pressure Control or Mains Water Switch-Over Device, the pump will continue to operate until the power is switched off. Most applications will incorporate an Auto Pressure Control or Mains Water Switch-Over Device which will stop the pump as soon as it has pressurised the system it is connected to. For instructions on operating your pump with one of these devices, please refer to the manual that came with your unit. The system is now ready for use. If no water is delivered, check the troubleshooting section. VADA - V110-H SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE Pump should only be serviced by qualified personnel. For best results, use only genuine service parts. Be sure to prime pump before starting. Liquid may be HOT, release pressure with care before servicing. To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard, turn OFF power to motor and remove plug from power outlet before working on pump or motor. GENERAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE Under normal conditions VADA pumps do not need any type of maintenance. In order to avoid possible failures, it is advisable to periodically check the pressure supplied and current absorption. A decrease in pressure is a symptom of wear. An increase in current absorption is a sign of abnormal mechanical friction in the pump and/or motor. If the pump is not going to be used for long periods of time it should be emptied completely, rinsed with clean water and put in a dry place. TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE Symptom Cause Remedy The motor will not start, no water is pumped No electricity Ensure that the pump is connected to a live outlet Motor protection tripped Verify the cause and reset the switch. If the thermal circuit breaker has tripped wait for the system to cool down Defective condenser Replace the condenser Shaft blocked Verify the cause and unblock the pump The pump is sucking air Makes sure that the joints are airtight The motor runs but no water is pumped Check that the level of liquid has not dropped below the minimum priming level. The pump stops after running for a short period of time because the thermal motor circuit breaker trips The pump rotates in the wrong direction Reset the direction of rotation The power supply does not conform with the data on the nameplate Check the voltage on the power supply cable leads A solid object is blocking the impellers Call 1800 032 566 for your nearest Reece branch The liquid is too thick Call 1800 032 566 for your nearest Reece branch.
