To avoid strains on the pump, support both suction and discharge pipes independently. Place these supports near the pump.
To avoid a strain left by a gap at the last connection, start all piping at the
pump and run pipe away from the pump.
Never use a suction pipe smaller than pump suction connection.
To avoid airlocking, slope suction pipe slightly upward toward the pump.
NOTICE: To prevent flooding when removing pump for service, all flooded
suction systems must have gate valves in suction and discharge pipes.
Fittings:
Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings.
Avoid fittings which could cause an air trap.
Pool fittings must conform to International Association of Plumbing and
Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards.
Use only non-entrapping suction fitting or double suction.
POOL PUMP SUCTION
REQUIREMENTS
Pump suction is hazardous and can trap and drown or disembowel bathers. Do not use or operate swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs if a
suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose. Follow the guidelines below
for a pump installation which minimizes risk to users of pools, spas, and hot
tubs.
Entrapment Protection
The pump suction system must provide protection against the hazard of
suction entrapment or hair entrapment/entanglement.
Suction Outlet Covers
All suction outlet covers must be maintained. They must be replaced if
cracked, broken, or missing.
See below for outlet cover certification requirements.
All suction outlets must have correctly installed, screw-fastened covers in
place.

Testing and Certification
Suction outlet covers must have been tested by a nationally recognized testing
laboratory and found to comply with the latest ASME/ANSI Specification for
Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool
Bathtub Applications.
Outlets Per Pump
Provide at least two hydraulically balanced main drains, with covers (see Page
5), for each swimming pool pump suction line. The centers of the main drains
(suction fittings) must be at least three feet apart.
The system must be built so that it cannot operate with the pump drawing
water from only one main drain (that is, there must be at least two main drains
connected to the pump whenever it is running). (See Figure 2). However, if
two main drains run into a single suction line, the single suction line may be
equipped with a valve which will shutoff both main drains from the pump
(see Figure 2).
More than one pump can be connected to a single suction line as long as the
requirements above are met.
Water Velocity
The maximum water velocity through any suction outlet must be 1.5 feet per
second unless the outlet complies with the latest ASME/SNSI Specification for
Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool
Bathtub Applications. In any case, do not exceed the suction fittings maximum designed flow rate.
If 100% of the pump’s flow comes from the main drain system, the maximum
water velocity in the pump suction hydraulic system must be six feet per second or less even if one main drain (suction fitting) is completely blocked. The
flow through the remaining main drain(s) must comply with the latest
ASME/ANSI Specification for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools,
Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications.
ELECTRICAL
Ground motor before connecting to electrical power supply. Failure to
ground motor can cause severe or fatal electrical shock hazard.
Do not ground to a gas supply line.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to motor
before working on electrical connections.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) tripping indicates an electrical
problem. If GFCI trips and will not reset, have a qualified electrician
inspect and repair electrical system.
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Ground pump before
connecting to
power supply.
Exactly match supply voltage to nameplate voltage. Incorrect voltage
can cause fire or seriously damage motor and voids warranty.
If in doubt consult a licensed electrician.
Voltage
Voltage at motor must be not more than 10% above or below motor nameplate 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.

Pump must be permanently connected to circuit. See Figures 4A and 4B for
wiring connection diagrams. Match wire and circuit breaker sizes to correct
Fusing and Wiring Data Chart (Page 8). If other lights or appliances are also on
the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads to pump amp load. (If unsure
how to do this or if this is confusing, consult a licensed electrician.) Use the
load circuit breaker as the master on-off switch.
Install a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) in circuit; it will sense a shortcircuit 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 power outage, check GFCI for tripping (which will prevent normal
water circulation). Reset if necessary.
NOTICE: If you do not use conduit when wiring motor, be sure to seal wire
opening on end of motor to prevent dirt, bugs, etc., from entering motor.

OPERATION
NEVER run pump dry. Running pump dry may damage seals, causing
leakage and flooding. Fill pump with water before starting motor.
Before removing trap cover:
1. STOP PUMP before proceeding.
2. CLOSE GATE VALVES in suction and discharge pipes.
3. RELEASE ALL PRESSURE from pump and piping system.
4. NEVER tighten or loosen clamp while pump is operating!
If pump is being pressure tested, be sure pressure has been released before removing trap cover.
Do not block pump suction. To do so with body may cause severe or
fatal injury. Small children using pool must ALWAYS have close adult
supervision.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high temperatures.
To reduce the 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 20 minutes before trying to work on it. An automatic internal cutoff
switch protects the motor from heat damage during operation.
Hazardous suction.
Can trap hair or
body parts, causing
severe injury
or death.
NOTICE: Maximum ambient temperature for motor operation must not
exceed maximum ambient temperature rating on motor model plate.
Do not block
suction.
Release all pressure from filter, pump, and piping system; see the filter owner’s
manual.
In a flooded suction system (water source higher than pump), pump will prime
itself when suction and discharge valves are opened.
If pump is not in a flooded suction system, remove trap cover handle ring and
trap cover; fill trap and pump with water.
Do not lubricate the trap cover O-Ring. The original equipment O-Ring contains a permanent internal lubricant.
NOTICE: If you replace the O-Ring with a non-internally lubricated O-Ring,
you may need to apply a silicone based lubricant.
Clean and inspect O-Ring; reinstall on trap.
Replace trap cover and handle ring on trap; turn handle ring clockwise to
tighten cover.
NOTICE: Tighten trap cover handle ring by hand only (no wrenches)!
Pump should prime now. Priming time will depend on vertical length of suction lift and horizontal length of suction piping.
If pump does not prime, make sure that all valves are open, suction pipe end
is under water, and that there are no leaks in suction pipe.
See Troubleshooting Guide, Page 13.
Priming Pump
Routine Maintenance
The only routine maintenance needed is inspection/cleaning of trap basket.
Debris or trash that collects in basket will choke off water flow through the
pump. Follow instructions below to clean trap:
1. Stop pump, close valves in suction and discharge, and release all pressure
from system before proceeding.
9
2. Remove trap cover handle ring (turn counterclockwise). If necessary, tap
handles gently with a rubber mallet.
3. Remove strainer basket and clean. Be sure all holes in basket are clear,
flush basket with water and replace in trap with large opening at pipe connection port (between ribs provided). If basket is replaced backwards cover
will not fit on trap body.
4. Clean and inspect lid O-Ring; reinstall on trap.
5. Clean O-Ring groove on trap body and replace cover and handle ring. To
help keep cover from sticking, tighten hand tight only.
6. Prime pump (see priming instructions).
Draining Pump
1. Pump down water level below all inlets to the pool.
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Disconnect power
before working
on pump or motor.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard, turn OFF power to
motor before draining pump.
2. Remove trap cover and use low pressure air to blow accumulated water
from the piping system. Lugs have been provided on the trap lid to use a
lever or pry bar for loosening.
3. Cap inlet piping after draining to keep water out of the pipes.
4. To prevent pump from freezing, remove trap cover and drain the tank body
through the drain plugs (Key No. 19, Pages 14 - 18). Clean pump and trap
basket thoroughly; replace trap cover.
NOTICE: Tighten trap cover by hand only (no wrenches)! Use a rubber
mallet only if necessary to remove cover! If pump is not anchored, use caution not to break attached piping!
5. Be sure motor is kept dry and covered.
Storage/Winterizing:
Explosion hazard. 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.
NOTICE: Allowing pump to freeze will damage pump and void warranty!
NOTICE: Do not use anti-freeze solutions (except propylene glycol) in your
pool/spa system. Propylene glycol is non-toxic and will not damage plastic
system components; other anti-freezes are highly toxic and may damage plastic components in the system.
Drain all water from pump and piping when expecting freezing temperatures
or when storing pump for a long time (see instructions below).
Keep motor dry and covered during storage.
To avoid condensation/corrosion problems, do not cover pump with plastic.
For outdoor/unprotected installations:
1. Gravity drain system as far as possible.
2. Protect areas which retain water with non-toxic propylene glycol antifreeze
(“RV antifreeze”).
3. Enclose entire system in a weatherproof enclosure.
4. To avoid condensation/corrosion damage, allow ventilation; do not wrap
system in plastic.
5. Use a 40% propylene glycol/60% water solution to protect pump to -50°F
(-46°C).
10
Startup For Winterized Equipment
1. Remove any temporary weather protection placed around system.
2. Follow filter manufacturer’s instructions for reactivation of the filter.
3. Inspect all electrical wiring for damage or deterioration over the shutdown
period. Have a qualified serviceman repair wiring as needed.
4. Inspect and tighten all watertight connections.
5. Open all valves in suction and return piping.
6. Remove any winterizing plugs in piping system.
7. Drain all antifreeze from system.
8. Close all drain valves and replace all drain plugs in piping system.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Read and understand safety and operating instructions in this manual
before doing any work on pump!
Only qualified personnel should electrically test pump motor!
FAILURE TO PUMP; REDUCED CAPACITY OR DISCHARGE PRESSURE
Suction leaks/lost prime:
1. Pump must be primed; make sure that pump volute and trap are full of
water. See priming instructions, Page 9.
2. Make sure there are no leaks in suction piping.
3. Make sure suction pipe inlet is well below the water level to prevent
pump from sucking air.
4. Suction lift of 10 to 20 feet (3-6 M) will reduce performance. Suction lift of
more than 20 feet (6 M) will prevent pumping and cause pump to lose
prime. In either case, move pump closer (vertically) to water source.
Make sure suction pipe is large enough.
Clogged pipe/trap/impeller, worn impeller:
5. Make sure suction trap is not clogged; if it is, clean trap and strainer.
6. Make sure impeller is not clogged (follow steps 1 through 7 under
“Removing Old Seal”, Page 11; check impeller for clogging; follow steps
7 through 10 under “Installing New Seal”, Page 12, for reassembly).
7. Impeller and diffuser may be worn. If so, order replacement parts from
Repair Parts List, Pages 14-15.
8. Pump may be trying to push too high a column of water. If so, a “higher
head” pump is needed.
Electrical:
9. Pump may be running too slowly; check voltage at motor terminals and at
meter while pump is running. If low, see wiring instructions or consult
