IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
▲WARNING Pay Attention to Children.
1. To reduce risk of injury, do not permit children to use
or climb on this product. Closely supervise children
at all times. Components such as the filtration
system, pumps, and heaters must be positioned to
prevent children from using them as a means of
access to the pool.
2. This pump is intended for use on permanently
installed swimming pools and may also be used with
hot tubs and spas if 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
storable pool is constructed so that it is capable
of being readily disassembled for storage and
reassembled to its original integrity.
3. Though this product is designed for outdoor use, it is
strongly advised to protect the electrical components
from the weather. Select a well-drained area, one that
will not flood when it rains. It requires free circulation
of air for cooling. Do not install in a damp or non ventilated location.
4. Pool and spa components have an finite life. All
components should be inspected frequently and
replaced at least every five years, or if found to be
damaged, broken, cracked, missing, or not securely
attached.
▲WARNING Risk of Electric Shock.
Applies to Inground Pumps
5. Hazardous voltage. Can shock, burn, or cause
death. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do NOT
use an extension cord to connect unit to electric
supply. Provide a properly located outlet. It is
required that licensed electricians do all electrical
wiring. All electrical wiring MUST be in conformance
with applicable local and national codes and
regulations. Before working on pump or motor,
disconnect motor wiring.
6. To reduce the risk of electric shock, replace damaged
cord immediately. Do NOT bury cord. Locate cord to
prevent abuse from lawn mowers, hedge trimmers
and other equipment.
7. Risk of Electric Shock. Connect only to a branch
circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). Contact a professional electrician if you
cannot verify that the receptacles are protected by
a GFCI.
8. Failure to bond pump to pool structure will increase
risk for electrocution and could result in injury
or death. To reduce the risk of electric shock, see
installation instructions and consult a professional
electrician on how to bond pump. Also, contact a
licensed electrician for information on local electrical
codes for bonding requirements.
9. Use a solid copper conductor, size 8 or larger.
Run a continuous wire from external bonding lug to
reinforcing rod or mesh. Connect a No. 8 AWG
(8.4 mm2) solid copper bonding wire to the pressure
wire connector provided on the motor housing and
to all metal parts of swimming pool, spa, or hot tub,
and to all electrical equipment, metal piping (except
gas piping), and conduit within 5 feet (1.5m) of inside
walls of swimming pool, spa or hot tub.
IMPORTANT: Reference NEC codes for all wiring
standards including, but not limited to, grounding,
bonding and other general wiring procedures.
NOTE: The National Electrical Code (NEC) permits
use of a cord with a maximum 3 feet (1m) length. If
your pump is equipped with a cord complying with
the NEC, the preceding four hazards apply.
10.Do not install within an outer enclosure or beneath
the skirt of a hot tub or spa.
11.SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
12.These pumps are not pool side pumps.
▲WARNING Suction Entrapment Hazard.
13.Suction in suction outlets and/or suction outlet
covers, which are damaged, broken, cracked,
missing, or unsecured, cause severe injury and/or
death due to the following entrapment hazards:
Hair Entrapment: Hair can become entangled in
suction outlet cover.
Limb Entrapment: A limb inserted into an opening
of a suction outlet sump or suction outlet cover that
is damaged, broken, cracked, missing, or not
securely attached can result in a mechanical bind
or swelling of the limb.
Body Suction Entrapment: A pressure applied to
a large portion of the body or limbs can result in an
entrapment.

Evisceration/Disembowelment: A negative
pressure applied directly to the intestines through
an unprotected suction outlet sump or suction outlet
cover which is damaged, broken, cracked,
missing, or unsecured can result in evisceration/
disembowelment.
Mechanical Entrapment: There is potential for
jewelry, swimsuits, hair decorations, fingers, toes,
or knuckles to be caught in an opening of a suction
outlet cover resulting in mechanical entrapment.
▲WARNING Reduce Risk of Entrapment Hazards.
14.When outlets are small enough to be blocked by a
person, a minimum of two functioning suction
outlets per pump must be installed. Suction outlets
in the same plane (floor or wall), must be installed
a minimum of 3 feet [0.91 meter] apart, as measured
from near point to near point.
•Dual suction fittings shall be placed in such
locations and distances to avoid ‘dual blockage’ by
a user.
•Dual suction fittings shall not be located on seating
areas or on the backrest for such seating areas.
•The maximum system flow rate shall not exceed
the values shown in the ‘Pipe Sizing Chart’ found
at this manual.
•Never use pool or spa if any suction outlet
component is damaged, broken, cracked, missing,
or not securely attached.
•Replace damaged, broken, cracked, missing,
or not securely attached suction outlet components
immediately.
•Installation of a vacuum release or vent system,
recommended, relieves entrapping suction.
▲WARNING Hazardous Pressure.
15.Pool and spa water circulation systems operate
under hazardous pressure during start-up, normal
operation, and after pump shut-off. Stand clear
of circulation system equipment during pump start up. Failure to follow safety and operation instructions
could result in violent separation of the pump
housing and cover due to pressure in the system,
which could cause property damage, severe
personal injury, or death. Before servicing pool and
spa water circulation system, all system and pump
controls must be in off position and filter manual
air relief valve must be in open position. Before
starting system pump, all system valves must be
set in a position to allow system water to return
back to the pool. Do not change filter control valve
position while system pump is running. Before
starting system pump, fully open filter manual air
relief valve. Do not close filter manual air relief
valve until a steady stream of water (not air or air
and water) is discharged. All suction and discharge
valves MUST be OPEN when starting the circulation
system. Failure to do so could result in severe
personal injury and/or property damage.
▲WARNING Separation Hazard.
16.Failure to follow safety and operation instructions
could result in violent separation of pump
components. Strainer cover must be properly
secured to pump housing with strainer cover
lock ring. Before servicing pool and spa circulation
system, all system and pump controls must be in
off position and filter manual air relief valve must
be in open position. Do not operate pool and
spa circulation system if a system component is
not assembled properly, damaged, or missing. Do
not operate pool and spa circulation system unless
filter air relief valve body is in locked position in filter
upper body. All suction and discharge valves MUST
be OPEN when starting the circulation system.
Failure to do so could result in severe personal
injury and/or property damage.
17.Never operate or test the circulation system at
more than 40 psi.
▲WARNING Fire and burn hazard.
18.Motors operate at high temperatures and if they are
not properly isolated from any flammable structures
or foreign debris, they can cause fires, which
may cause severe personal injury or death. It is
also necessary to allow the motor to cool for at
least 20 minutes prior to maintenance to minimize
the risk for burns.
19.Motor must be grounded in accordance with local
and national electrical codes.
20.To prevent electrical shock or injury, do not run
pump dry.
21.To reduce the risk of electric shock, install at least
10 feet from the inside walls of the pool. Do not use
an extension cord.
CHAPTER 2: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
▲WARNING This product should be installed and
serviced only by a qualified professional.
1. Pump Mounting: Install pump on a firm, level base
or pad to meet all local and national codes. Fasten
pump to base or pad with screws or bolts to further
reduce vibration and stress on pipe or hose joints.
The base MUST be solid, level, rigid, and vibration free.
Pump Mount Must:
•Allow pump inlet height to be as close to water
level as possible.
•Allow use of short, direct suction pipe (to reduce
friction losses).
•Allow for gate valves in suction and discharge
piping.
•Be protected from excess moisture and flooding.

NOTE: It is recommended that a minimum length
of piping, equivalent to 10 pipe diameters, be used
between the pump suction inlet and any plumbing fittings.
▲WARNING Hazardous Pressure.
Pumps, filters, and other equipment/ components
of a swimming pool filtration system operate under
pressure. Incorrectly installed and/or improperly
tested filtration equipment and/or components may
fail resulting in injury and/or property damage.
2. Plumbing: Use Teflon tape to seal threaded
connections on molded plastic components. All
plastic fittings must be new or thoroughly cleaned
before use. NOTE: Do NOT use Plumber’s
Pipe Dope as it may cause cracking of the plastic
components. When applying Teflon tape to plastic
threads, wrap the entire threaded portion of the
male fitting with one to two layers of tape. Wind the
tape clockwise as you face the open end of the
fitting, beginning at the end of the fitting. The pump
suction and outlet ports have molded-in thread
stops. Do NOT attempt to force hose connector
fitting past this stop. It is only necessary to tighten
fittings enough to prevent leakage. Tighten fitting by
hand and then use a tool to engage fitting an
additional 1-1/2 turns. Use care when using Teflon
tape as friction is reduced considerably. Do NOT
over-tighten fitting or you may cause damage. If
leaks occur, remove connector, clean off old Teflon
tape, re-wrap with one to two additional layers of
Teflon tape, and re-install connector.
3. Fittings: Fittings restrict flow. For better efficiency,
use the fewest possible fittings (but at least two
suction outlets). Avoid fittings that could cause an
air trap. Pool and spa fittings MUST conform to the
International Association of Plumbing and
Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards. Use a
non-entrapping suction fitting in pool (multiple
drains) or double suction (skimmer and main drain).
CHAPTER 3: ELECTRICAL
1.Ground and bond motor before connecting to
electrical power supply. Failure to ground and bond
pump motor can cause serious or fatal electrical
shock hazard.
2. Do NOT ground to a gas supply line.
3. To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn
OFF power to motor before working on electrical
connections.
4. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) tripping
indicates electrical problem. If GFCI trips and won’t
reset, consult electrician to inspect and repair
electrical system.
▲WARNING Fire Hazard.
5. Match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.
Insure that the electrical supply available agrees
with the motor’s voltage, phase, and cycle, and
that the wire size is adequate for the H.P. (KW)
rating and distance from the power source.

NOTE: All electrical wiring MUST be performed
by a licensed electrician, and MUST conform
to local codes and NEC regulations. Use copper
conductors only.
6. Voltage: Voltage at motor MUST NOT be more
than 10% above or below motor name plate rated
voltage, or motor may overheat, causing overload
tripping and reduced component life. If voltage is
less than 90% or more than 110% of rated voltage
when motor is running at full load, consult Power
Company.
7. Grounding and Bonding: Install, ground, bond,
and wire motor in accordance with local or national
electrical code requirements. Permanently ground
motor. Use green ground terminal provided under
motor canopy or access place; use size and type
wire required by code. Connect motor ground
terminal to electrical service ground. Bond motor
to pool structure. Bonding will connect all metal
parts within and around the pool with a continuous
wire. Bonding reduces the risk of a current passing
between bonded metal objects, which could
potentially cause electrical shock if grounded
5718 52nd Street Kenosha WI 53144 | Orders and Customer Care: 1-866-616-1270 | Fax: 1-866-616-1271 | HarrisPoolProducts.com
or shorted. Reference NEC codes for all wiring
standards including, but not limited to,
grounding, bonding and general wiring
procedures. Use a solid copper conductor, size
8 or larger. Run wire from external bonding lug to
reinforcing rod or mesh. Connect a No. 8 AWG (8.4
mm2) solid copper bonding wire to the pressure
wire connector provided on the motor housing and
to all metal parts of swimming pool, spa, or hot tub,
and to all electrical equipment, metal piping (except
gas piping), and conduit within 5 feet (1.5 m) of
inside walls of swimming pool, spa, or hot tub.
▲WARNING All Wiring Must be Done by a Licensed
Electrician.
8. Wiring: Pump MUST be permanently connected
to circuit. If other lights or appliances are also on
the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads
before calculating wire and circuit breaker sizes. Use
the load circuit breaker as the Master On-Off switch.
Install a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
in circuit; it will sense a short-circuit to ground and
disconnect power before it becomes dangerous
to pool users. For size of GFCI required and test
procedures for GFCI, see manufacturer’s instructions.
In case of a power outage, check GFCI for tripping,
which will prevent normal pump operation. Reset if
necessary. NOTE: If you do not use conduit when
wiring motor, be sure to seal wire opening on end of
motor to prevent dirt & bugs from entering.
CHAPTER 4: START-UP & OPERATION
PRIOR TO START-UP
NOTICE: If it is necessary to perform a pressure
test prior to initial use to ensure pump is functioning
properly, then the following criteria should be
maintained for this test:
1. Have a professional perform this test.
2.Ensure all pump and system components are
sealed properly to prevent leaks.
3. Remove any trapped air in the system by fully
opening filter manual air relief valve until a steady
stream of water is discharged.
4. Allow no more than 40 psi (276 kPa) at a water
temperature no higher than 100ºF (38ºC).
5. Run pressure test for no longer than 24 hours.
Immediately inspect all parts to verify they are
intact and functioning properly. Fill strainer housing
with water to suction pipe level. NEVER OPERATE
THE PUMP WITHOUT WATER. Water acts as a
coolant and lubricant for the mechanical shaft seal.
▲WARNING If pump is being pressure tested (40
psi MAXIMUM), be sure pressure has been
released, using the filter manual air relief valve,
before removing strainer cover.
▲CAUTION NEVER run pump dry. Running pump
dry may damage seals, causing leakage, flooding,
and voids warranty. Fill strainer housing with water
before starting motor.
6. Do NOT add chemicals to pool/spa system directly
in front of pump suction. Adding undiluted chemicals
may damage pump and voids warranty.
7. Before removing strainer cover:
1.
STOP PUMP before proceeding.
2.
CLOSE VALVES in suction and outlet pipes.
3.
RELEASE ALL PRESSURE from pump and
piping system using filter manual air relief valve.
See filter owner’s manual for more detail.
PRIMING PUMP
▲CAUTION All suction and discharge valves MUST
be OPEN, as well as filter air relief valve (if available)
on filter, when starting the circulating pump system.
Failure to do so could result in severe personal injury.
1. Release all pressure from filter, pump, and piping
system. See filter owner’s manual.
2. If water source is higher than the pump, pump will
prime itself when suction and outlet valves are
opened. If water source is lower than the pump,
unscrew and remove strainer cover, fill strainer
housing with water.
3. Clean and lubricate strainer cover O-ring each time
it is removed. Inspect O-ring and re-install on
strainer cover.
4. Replace strainer cover on strainer housing, turn
clockwise to tighten cover.
NOTE: Tighten strainer cover by hand only (no
wrenches).
▲CAUTION Turn on power and wait for pump to
prime, which may take up to five minutes. Priming
time will depend on vertical length of suction lift and
horizontal length of suction pipe. If pump does NOT
prime within five minutes, stop motor and determine
cause. Be sure all suction and discharge valves
are open when pump is running. See Trouble shooting Guide. Wait five seconds before re-starting
pump. Failure to do so may cause reverse rotation
of motor and consequent serious pump damage.
Close filter manual air relief valve after pump is primed.

CHAPTER 5: MAINTENANCE
•Clean strainer basket regularly. Do NOT strike
basket to clean. Inspect strainer cover gasket
regularly and replace as necessary.
•Pumps have self-lubricating motor bearings and
shaft seals. No lubrication is necessary.
•Keep motor clean. Insure air vents are free from
obstruction to avoid damage. Do NOT use water
to hose off motor.
•Occasionally, shaft seals must be replaced, due
to wear or damage. See ‘Shaft Seal Change
Instructions’ in this manual.
CHAPTER 6: STORAGE/WINTERIZATION
▲WARNING Separation Hazard.
1. Do not purge the system with compressed air.
Purging the system with compressed air can cause
components to explode, with risk of severe injury
or death to anyone nearby. Use only a low pressure
(below 5 psi), high volume blower when air purging
the pump, filter, or piping.
2. Allowing the pump to freeze will void the warranty.
3. Use ONLY propylene glycol as antifreeze in your
pool/spa system. Propylene glycol is nontoxic and
will not damage plastic system components; other
anti-freezes are highly toxic and may damage
plastic components in the system.
4.Drain all water from pump and piping when
expecting freezing temperatures or when storing
pump for a long time (see instructions below).
5. Keep motor dry and covered during storage. To
avoid condensation/corrosion problems, do NOT
cover or wrap pump with plastic film or bags.
Storing Pump For Winterization
▲WARNING To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical
shock hazard, turn OFF power to motor before
draining pump. Failure to disconnect power may
result in serious personal injury or death.
1. Drain water level below all inlets to the pool.
2. Remove drain plugs from bottom of strainer body,
and remove strainer cover from strainer housing.
3.Disconnect pump from mounting pad, wiring
system (after power has been turned OFF), and
piping system.
4. Once the pump is removed of water, re-install the
strainer cover and drain plugs. Store pump in a dry area.
Shaft Seal Change Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
Modifications done to the pumps will void the
warranty.
When servicing electrical equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be observed including
the following. Failure to follow instructions may
result in injury.
A. To reduce risk of injury, do not permit children to
use this product.
B.Disconnect all electrical power service to pump
before beginning shaft seal replacement.
C. Only qualified personnel should attempt rotary seal
replacement. Contact your local authorized Dealer
or service center if you have any questions.
D. The National Electrical Code requires either a
three foot maximum twist-lock cord set with a GFCI
protected receptacle (may be required and sold
at your local hardware store) or hard wire (conduit)
connection for swimming pool pump installation.
Do not use extension cords.
E. Exercise extreme care in handling both the rotating
and the stationary sections of the two-part
replacement seal. Foreign matter or improper
handling will easily scratch the graphite and ceramic
sealing surfaces.
CHAPTER 7: TROUBLESHOOTING
A. Motor Will NOT Start – Check For:
Make sure the terminal board connections agree
with the wiring diagram on motor data plate label.
Be sure motor is wired for available field supply
voltage (see pump operating label).
1.Improper or loose wiring connections; open
switches or relays; tripped circuit breakers, GFCIs,
or blown fuses.
Solution: Check all connections, circuit breakers,
and fuses. Reset tripped breakers or replace blown
fuses.
2. Manually check rotation of motor shaft for free
movement and lack of obstruction.
Solution: Refer to ‘Shaft Seal Change Instructions’
in this manual.
3. If you have a timer, be certain it is working properly.
Bypass it if necessary.
B. Motor Shuts OFF – Check For:
1. Low voltage at motor or power drop (frequently caused
by undersized wiring or extension cord use).
Solution: Contact qualified professional to check
that the wiring gauge is heavy enough. NOTE: Your
pump motor is equipped with an ‘automatic thermal
overload protector.’ The motor will automatically
shut off if power supply drops before heat damage
can build up causing windings to burn out. The
‘thermal overload protector’ will allow the motor to
automatically restart once the motor has cooled. It
will continue to cut On/Off until the problem is
corrected.
Be sure to correct cause of overheating.

C. Motor Hums, But Does NOT Start – Check For:
1. Impeller jammed with debris.
Solution: Have a qualified repair professional open
the pump and remove the debris.
D. Pump Won’t Prime, Check For:
1. Empty pump/strainer housing.
Solution: Make sure pump/strainer housing is filled
with water and cover O-Ring is clean. Ensure O-Ring
is properly seated in the cover O-Ring groove.
Ensure O-ring is lubricated and that strainer cover
is locked firmly in position. Lubricant will help to
create a tighter seal.
2. Loose connections on suction side.
Solution: Tighten pipe/union connections. NOTE:
Any self-priming pump will not prime if there are
suction air leaks. Leaks will result in bubbles
emanating from return fittings on pool wall.
3.Leaking O-ring or packing glands on valves.
Solution: Tighten, repair, or replace valves.
4. Strainer basket or skimmer basket loaded with
debris.
Solution: Remove strainer housing cover or
skimmer cover, clean basket, and refill strainer
housing with water. Tighten cover.
5. Suction side clogged.
Solution: Contact a qualified repair professional.
Block off to determine if pump will develop a
vacuum. You should have 5 in. to 6 in. of vacuum
at the strainer cover (Only your pool dealer can
confirm this with a vacuum gauge). You may be
able to check by removing the skimmer basket and
holding your hand over the bottom port with
skimmer full and pump running. If no suction is felt,
check for line blockage.
a. If pump develops a vacuum, check for blocked
suction line or dirty strainer basket. An air leak
in the suction piping may be the cause.
b. If pump does not develop a vacuum and pump
has sufficient “priming water”:
i. Re-check strainer housing cover and all
threaded connections for suction leaks.
Check if all system hose clamps are tight.
ii. Check voltage to ensure that the motor is
rotating at full RPM’s.
iii. Open housing cover and check for clogging
or obstruction in suction. Check impeller for
debris.
iv. Remove and replace shaft seal only if it is
leaking.
3. Plugged or restricted discharge line of filter, valve
partially closed (high gauge reading).
Solution: Sand Filters: backwash as per
manufacturer’s instructions; D.E. Filters: backwash
as per manufacturer’s instructions; Cartridge Flters:
clean or replace cartridge.
4. Air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return
fittings).
Solution: Re-tighten suction and discharge
connections using Teflon tape. Inspect other
plumbing connections and tighten as required.
5. Plugged, restricted, or damaged impeller.
Solution: Replace including new seal assembly.
F. Noisy Pump – Check For:
1. Air leak in suction piping, cavitations caused by
restricted or undersized suction line or leak at any
joint, low water level in pool, and unrestricted
discharge return lines.
Solution: Correct suction condition or throttle
return lines, if practical. Holding hand over return
fitting will sometimes prove this point or putting in a
smaller eyeball fitting.
2. Vibration due to improper mounting.
Solution: Mount the pump on a level surface and
secure the pump to the equipment pad.
3. Foreign matter in pump housing. Loose stones/
debris hitting impeller could be cause.
Solution: Clean the pump housing.
4.Motor bearings noisy from normal wear, rust,
overheating, or concentration of chemicals causing
seal damage which will allow chlorinated water
to seep into bearings, wiping out the grease and
causing bearing to whine.
Solution: All seal leaks should be replaced at once.

Products™ 5718 52nd Street, Kenosha, Wisconsin, warrants its products free from defects in materials and
workmanship for a period of ONE (1) year from the date of purchase.
Parts which fail or become defective during the warranty period, except as a result of freezing, negligence,
improper installation, use, or care, shall be replaced, at our option, without charge, within 90 days of the receipt
of defective product, barring unforeseen delays.
After 90 days, to obtain warranty replacements, defective components should be returned, transportation paid, to
the place of purchase. For further Harris Pool Product’s™ service, contact Harris Pool Product’s™ cus­tomer care
department. No returns may be made directly to the factory without the express written authorization of Harris
Pool Products™.
To original purchasers of this pump, Harris Pool Products™, warrants its pump housing/strainer to be free from
defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ONE (1) year from the date of purchase.
Strainers which become defective during the warranty period, except as a result of freezing, negligence, improper installation, use or care, or as the result of a use in association with an automatic valving system.
All other conditions and terms of the standard warranty apply.
Harris Pool Products™ shall not be responsible for cartage, removal and/or reinstallation labor or any other such

The Harris Pool Products™ warranty does not apply to components manufactured by others. For such products,
the warranty established by the respective manufacturer will apply.
Some states do not allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

General Maintenance
Storage/Winterization Maintenance
1.Clean strainer basket regularly. Do NOT strike
basket to clean. Inspect strainer cover gasket
regularly and replace as necessary.
2.Pumps have self-lubricating motor bearings and
shaft seals. No lubrication is necessary.
3.Keep motor clean. Ensure air vents are free from
obstruction to avoid damage. Do NOT use water
to hose off motor.
4. Occasionally, shaft seals must be replaced, due to
wear or damage.
1. Do not purge the system with compressed air. Use only a low
pressure (below 5 psi), high volume blower when air purging
the pump, filter or piping.
2. Allowing the pump to freeze will void the warranty.
3. Use ONLY propylene glycol as antifreeze in your pool/spa system.
4.Drain all water from pump and piping when expecting
freezing temperatures or when storing pump for a long time.
5.Keep motor dry and covered during storage. To avoid
condensation/corrosion problems, do NOT cover or wrap
pump with plastic film or bags.
