How You’re UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ Works
The UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ produces the strongest Oxidizer (Ozone) commercially available for pool (and spa) water
treatment. UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaners™ take over the oxidation work usually done by chlorine (or bromine). Incomplete
oxidation by chlorine, accounts for up to 70% of its usage and 100% of its problems. With an UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™
installed, Ozone removes compounds that normally combine with chlorine. Obnoxious combined chlorine compounds (chloramines and
scum lines) are not formed. Once this oxidation is accomplished, smaller amounts of chlorine provide a 'free - available' residual that is
a very effective biocide to kill viruses, bacteria and algae. This produces superb water quality and minimizes chemical usage. Using
UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaners™ result in the least amount of chemicals of any method currently available for pool
(and spa) water treatment.

General Information
The suction side method of installing your UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ is very simple. The compression fitting check valve
is installed on the suction side of the pump. With the pool pump running and our exclusive Airflow Control Insert™ (AFCI™) in place,
Ozone and air is drawn into the pump. This Ozone (air mix) goes through the pump impeller and the Ozone is pressurized into the
water, and enters the filter. As much as 70 - 95% of the Ozone is absorbed by the water before it leaves the filter and the remainder is
absorbed in the return lines on the way back to the pool. When the pump shuts off, our 1/2 lb. compression fitting check valve prevents
water from leaking back into the unit.
Each UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ has a standard Valve-Less Suction Side Parts Package. If you wish to utilize an alternate
injection device, it must be purchased separately. Our Model Number indicates unit capacity at 6 - 12 hours of operation per day. All
UPP units have United States Gallon & Pump Size recommendations listed in the chart on page 4. Upsize or downsize the units
according to the daily pump run time.

INSTALLATION
For Above Ground Pools
To successfully install our suction side units, you must consider the following points:
a) An air draw above the maximum will lower the effectiveness.
b) Smaller sized pools may require an airflow rate in the lower end of the typical airflow;
e.g. A UPP15 on a 12,000 USG pool can use 3 - 7 cfh;
A UPP25 on a 25,000 USG pool can use 4 - 10 cfh
c) Increase run time when bather loads are very heavy and when weather conditions are severe.

A) Site Selection
1. Ensure the SITE SELECTION on the pump pad conforms to local electrical codes.
2. Select a pump pad location, within fifteen (15) feet of a 120 Volt power source; no more than eight (8) feet from the suction side
injection point. A qualified electrician should perform the electrical procedure(s).
3. Ensure your UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ is tied into the pump power supply and the plug is grounded in
accordance with local electrical codes, or simply plug the pump into the back of the plug supplied with the UltraPure™
Automatic Water Cleaner™ cord set.
4. This electrical ‘hook-up’ ties the UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ into the pump power supply. By operating your
UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ 8 – 12 hours per day, bulb life is extended.
B) Installation Steps
1.
2.
Shut off the pump and use the Above Ground Valve-Less Suction Side Parts Package (AGV-SSPP Part No. 1008000).
Strainer Basket Installation: Remove the drain plug

With the pump off, connect the black 3/8" tubing to the compression fitting check valve at the pump basket.
Thread the 1/4" NPT x 3/8” compression fitting ‘glow’ elbow into the 1/4" threaded hole opposite the cord end of the
unit.
7.
To control the airflow through the unit, insert the 1/4" Air Flow Control Insert™ (AFCI™) half way in the (unit) end of the 3/8”
tubing. Turn the power ON; START the pump; and, CHECK that the ‘glow’ Kynar compression elbow lights up a blue/green
colour. With pump running, adjust the air draw to suit the pump size while ensuring it does not exceed the maximum for the unit
size. The airflow is adjusted by moving the Air Flow Control Insert™ (AFCI™) in for less airflow and out for more airflow. Once the
desired airflow is attained, cut the excess Air Flow Control Insert™ (AFCI™) off and discard it. Push the remaining portion of the
Air Flow Control Insert™ (AFCI™), 2" - 3", into the tubing. Connect the 3/8" tubing with the Air Flow Control Insert™ (AFCI™)
inside, to the compression-fitting elbow in the UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™. Your installation is complete. With the
pump running, your UltraPure™ Automatic Water Cleaner™ is introducing the strongest Oxidizer commercially available into the
pool water.
8.
With the pump on, ensure a 'fine bubble mist' is entering the pool through one or more returns. Shut the pump off and ensure
that most of the air is leaving the filter, i.e. there is no surge or back up of air through the suction (skimmer) line. Ensure that the
1/2 lb. check valve is not allowing air to bubble back into the pump basket when the pump is turned off.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
UV LIGHT IS HARMFUL TO EYES AND EXPOSED SKIN; TURN OFF ELECTRICAL SUPPLY BEFORE OPENING
UNIT.
Ozone is considered to be toxic above certain concentrations and exposure times in air. If the ozone concentration in the
water exceeds the equilibrium state the excess ozone will be emitted into the air. The Occupational Safety and Health
Administration has set a short term exposure limit of 0.3 ppm (0.6 mg/m3) and 0.2 ppm (0.2 mg/m3) time weighted average,
over an 8-hour day, five days per week. There are ozone removal methods that may be considered prior to the addition of
the chemical disinfectant:
I.
Degassing by means of aerated flow;
II.
Granular activated carbon filter.
When the equipment is located in an enclosed room consideration should be given to having adequate exhaust in case of
ozone releases. The exhaust system should provide a minimum of three air changes per hour to comply with OSHA limits.
In addition, an ambient air ozone monitor should be installed.
Ozone systems, which operate under vacuum, should not present the danger of ozone leaks into the treatment room.
Important Safety Instructions
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
Connect to a grounded, grounding type receptacle only.
3.
Do not bury cord.
4.
WARNING – To reduce risk of electrical shock, replace damaged cord immediately.
5.
Install at least 5 ft. from inside wall of the pool using nonmetallic plumbing. Install
ozone generator no less than 1 ft. above the maximum water level to prevent water
from contacting electrical equipment. Install in accordance with the installation
instructions.
6.
WARNING – Short-term inhalation of high concentrations of ozone and long-term
inhalation of low concentrations of ozone can cause serious harmful physiological
effects. Do not inhale ozone gas produced by this device.
