Fig. 1
Remove the cleaner by placing the carton
down and removing it from the box as
shown. The cleaner and the Power Supply is
premounted to the cart. See the figure 4 for
Caddy Cart.
1. Select the nearest 220-240 volt AC outlet that is close and protected from short-circuits.
Fit a 30 mA differential protection device to protect people from electric shock caused by a
possible break in the electrical insulation.
2. Place the power supply so that it is at a minimum distance of 3.5 meters from the pool
edge. The length of the standard cable is 15.24 meters.
Fig. 2
3.5 m
3. Connect the floating cable to the power supply. Use only the original Power Supply
manufactured by Hayward.
4. Place the cleaner in the pool. It will slowly sink to the bottom of the pool as the air inside
is released.
5. Connect the power supply to the protected outlet and switch it on. The cleaner will
perform a self-diagnostics routine for several minutes before starting the cleaning cycle.
Caution: DO NOT switch power supply "ON" when the cleaner is out of water. This may
result in damage to the pump and drive motor seals, which will VOID the warranty.
6. The cleaner will automatically shut off after a cleaning cycle of 2 hours. If your pool is
cleaned in less time than 2 hours, you may shut the cleaner off manually by switching the
power supply to the off position.
Should a second cleaning cycle be required, switch OFF the power supply for 10
seconds and restart.
7. After the pool has been cleaned, switch OFF the power supply before removing the
cleaner from the pool.
8. Remove the cleaner from the water at the shallow end of the pool by pulling the cable
until the cleaner reaches the surface.
Then lift it out of the water using the handle, NOT the cable.
9. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent
or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
Caution: When pulling the cable, reel it in hand-over-hand - do NOT reel it around your
arm.
DO NOT ENTER THE SWIMMING POOL WHEN THE CLEANER IS OPERATING.
Optimum operating water temperature range for the cleaner is 10C - 35C.
Remove the cleaner from the pool after each use. Keeping the cleaner permanently in the
pool may result in additional service requirements.

Maintenance
Clean the filter cartridge after each use:
Open the cleaner by pressing the lid button and lifting up the dome cover.
Remove the filter bucket assembly by lifting it up out of the cleaner with both hands from
each side.
Flip the bucket assembly over to remove the debris and then rinse with a garden hose to
remove small particles.
Filter cartridges do not need to be removed to clean.
To Remove the filter cartridges:
Unsnap and lift up both filter door latches
Pull out the filter cartridges. Using a garden hose with a spray nozzle, wash the filter elements
to remove debris. Hold the filter elements as shown to allow the debris to fall out.
Wash the entire filter bucket assembly. (Previously shown).
Place the filter cartridges back into the filter bucket assembly with the center frame
reinforcements facing inward
10
Snap the filter door latches into place.
Return the filter bucket assembly into the cleaner using the diagram shown to determine
the front and back.
Close the dome and press the lid button to snap dome into place.
• Filter cleaning solution can be used to remove excessive dirt and/or sand.
Remember: The cleaner your filter is, the more cleaning will be effective.
Periodic Cleaning of Moving Parts
WARNING: Disconnect the power supply from electrical outlet
before cleaning moving parts.
• Inspect the venturi to ensure that no debris or hair has clogged the impeller.
• The impeller can be cleaned by spraying it with a garden hose
Remove any debris that has accumulated between the tracks and wheels
Storage
When out of the water, store the cleaner in a dry, shady location at temperatures between
4C - 46C
Cable Care
With continued use, the cable may become coiled (like a telephone cord). To correct this,
periodically stretching the cord out in the sun should remove any cord twists.
IMPORTANT: The cable should be checked periodically for any external damage.
11
Important Tips
• Cleaning the filter cartridge after every use maximizes the unit's performance.
• Replace worn brushes.
•To avoid clogging the cleaner's filter elements, be sure all chemical powders are fully
dissolved before operating the cleaner.
•In a pool with usually high calcium content, more frequent cleaning of the filter is
recommended.
•Save the original carton for extended storage or shipping requirements should your
cleaner require dealer service.
•The sealed Motor Unit and the Power Supply contain no user-serviceable parts.
Opening them will automatically VOID your warranty.
•Remove items such as thermometer, toys and the like from the pool before operating
the unit. Such items can jam the cleaner and cause damage to the unit and/or your
pool.
Troubleshooting
If the cleaner fails to pick up fine or heavy debris:
•Clean the filter. It may be clogged. A filter cleaning solution can be used to remove
excessive dirt and/or sand
If the cleaner starts working momentarily but then stops working:
•Impeller may be clogged or jammed with debris. Check and clean if necessary following
the instructions in the maintenance section.
•Brush roller or drive tracks are stuck. Check for debris and clean if necessary.
•Cleaner performs by both timing and a pool wall detection sensor, which ever comes
first.
•There are 3 intake ports located at bottom of filter bucket and near the brush roller.
Intake ports located next to the roller help collect debris such as leaves and sand better
than single intake.
•Fine debris such as sand may need a smaller intake port for stronger suction. The
cleaner can create a stronger suction with a "high velocity flapper" that can be installed
at intake port.
•For the cleaners used in areas that have a lot of sand the cleaner may need to be rinsed
with water at all flapper (filter bucket's flapper is at intake port) areas and may need
rinsing at the dome push button to allow free operation.
•Cleaner may get stuck if a high main drain is installed in the pool. Cleaner may remain
lodged on the drain for a short period of time, but will eventually free it's self by virtue of
the cleaner's embedded program.
12
Troubleshooting (continued)
•The filter bucket is designed to be cleaned with the filters installed for normal clean up. For
deep cleaning, the user can remove each filter cartridge and clean separately.
•During the normal operating cycle of the cleaner, the handle side of the unit will rise
from the pool bottom to allow the unit to clear obstacles, such as elevated main drains
and stair steps.
•It is normal to see the cleaner ride the wall for a short period of time; this allows the unit
to change position in the pool to assure full bottom coverage.
•Perception of cleaner performance: Confusion may exist over the perception of how
the cleaner operates at different times during each cycle. It is important to judge the
performance of the cleaner by observing improved pool cleanliness after the cleaner
has run a complete cleaning cycle.
•If a cleaner has poor coverage of the pool in one cycle or only covers a small area,
check the filter and clean if necessary and make sure the unit is not getting caught on
drains, floor cleaning heads or toys. The user may try starting the cleaner in different
locations to find the optimum cleaning location.
•If debris falls from cleaner while removing from pool, it may be caused by filter overload,
increase frequency of filter cleaning. Assure that there is no large debris blocking any of
the three intakes. Large debris must be removed from the pool before using machine.
If drain flaps are out of place or stuck by sand or leaves in the open position, the flaps
can be snapped back into place, after cleaning the area.
•Avoid dropping or throwing machine into pool. Place cleaner away from the pool wall
but do not throw the cleaner in the pool.
•If the flotation cord gets twisted which can be caused by the cleaner getting stuck on
large objects such as rocks, toys or main drains, it can be straightened by laying the
flotation cord at full length (if possible) in the sun; heat from the sun will help reduce the
twisting.
•If a high level of debris is visible through the dome windows, remove cleaner quickly
from the water to reduce the chance of the debris escaping the filter bucket and reentering the pool.
