IMPORTANT

EXERCISE SYSTEM

INSTRUCTIONS

The following contains important exercise system information, and we strongly encourage you to read and apply them.

DO:

• Follow the exercise system Care and Maintenance recommendations stated in this manual.

• Use only approved accessories and recommended exercise system chemicals and cleaners.

DON'T:

• Leave the exercise system exposed to the sun without water or a cover in place. Exposure to direct sunlight can cause solar distress of the shell material.

• Roll or slide the exercise system on its side. This will damage the siding.

• Lift or drag the vinyl cover by using the cover lock straps; always lift or carry the cover by using the handles.

• Attempt to open the electrical control box. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Opening of the control box by the exercise system owner will void the warranty. If you have an operational problem, carefully go through the steps outlined in the Troubleshooting section. If you are not able to resolve the problem, contact your authorized ENDLESS POOLS dealer. Many problems can easily be diagnosed over the telephone by an Authorized Service Technician.

EXERCISE SYSTEM SHELL

Your exercise system has an acrylic shell. Stains and dirt generally will not adhere to your exercise system’s surface. A soft rag should easily remove most dirt. Most household chemicals are harmful to your exercise system’s shell (see below for detailed information on cleaning agents). Always rinse off any exercise system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

IMPORTANT:

1. The following products are the ONLY approved cleaning agents for your exercise system shell: plain water or Soft Scrub ® . The use of alcohol or any other household cleaner other than those listed to clean the exercise system shell surface is NOT recommended. DO

NOT use any cleaning products containing abrasives or solvents since they may damage the shell surface, specifically: Simple

Green ® , Windex ® or spa Mitt. NEVER USE HARSH CHEMICALS!

Damage to the shell by use of harsh chemicals is not covered under the warranty. Always rinse off any exercise system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

2. Iron and copper in the water can stain the exercise system shell if allowed to go unchecked. Ask your ENDLESS POOLS dealer about a Stain and Scale Inhibitor to use if your exercise system has a high concentration of dissolved minerals.

3. Keep all cleaners out of the reach of children and use care when applying.

Site requirements

Your exercise system must be installed on a smooth and level surface with a 15 cm concrete slab or wood decking able to support 980 kg/m².

If a new slab is poured, consult your local electrical codes regarding grounding and bonding. Local code may require a bonding wire to be attached to the reinforcing bar or wire mesh that is embedded in the concrete. If new concrete is being poured, this is the ideal time to install the conduit for the incoming electrical supply.

Even if a new pad has been poured, it is essential that the system site is level and planar. There is a simple way to ensure that this is the case.

First, draw a chalk outline of the footprint of your exercise system.

Place a six-foot level along and around the footprint of the system. Verify that there are no gaps between the level and floor. Next pour water inside of the chalk footprint. Verify that the water does not puddle inside the footprint.

Should there a be a gap or should the water puddle inside the footprint, call your ENDLESS POOLS dealer prior to continuing to discuss the best way to resolve this situation.

INDOOR CONSIDERATIONS

• Local electrical and plumbing codes.

• Ventilation fans and/or dehumidifiers should be provided to handle the humidity developed by your exercise system. Walls, ceiling and wood trim should be water resistant, also.

• Chemicals will vaporize from the water and may cause an odor and possibly corrosion to certain home hardware. Never store chemicals inside the exercise system cabinet.

• During the normal use of the exercise system, water will escape the vessel. Never place on or over any materials, which may be damaged by this water or the chemicals within the water. Keep damageable materials far enough away to avoid water damage, even if the exercise system should lose all its water.

• Consider and prepare for the unlikely event of rapid drainage. If placement of the exercise system is permanent, you may wish to provide floor drains to accommodate draining, etc. Always leave room all around the exercise system for easy access in case repairs are necessary.

• Consider and prepare for the unlikely event of removal.

• Do not set exercise system on finished floor without a waterproof barrier protection underneath.

• The exercise system should be close to a source of water.

• Do not use the exercise system above a finished living area due to the risk of water damage.

• The exercise system is not designed for in-floor installation.

However, it is compatible with a deck system that is built flush with the bar top, provided you leave access for service.

• Be sure to note any other considerations, such as aesthetics or privacy concerns, that may affect the safety or enjoyment of using the exercise system.

OUTDOOR CONSIDERATIONS

• Local electrical and plumbing codes.

• Consider local codes pertaining to fencing, enclosures, walls, electrical and plumbing. You will need to ensure that your exercise system is an adequate distance from power lines, both above ground and underground. Your exercise system will also need to be child proofed.

• View from house for aesthetics and supervisory needs.

• Distance from house for wintertime soaking.

• Nighttime lighting.

• Consider sunlight exposure, views, access, property lines, lighting, wind direction, shielding, septic tanks, plants, and trees when determining your location. Chemicals in the exercise system water may splash damaging nearby plant life.

• Area for placement of support equipment where adequate space will be needed to gain access to components for maintenance and general servicing.

• Be sure to note any other considerations, such as aesthetics or privacy concerns, that may affect the safety or enjoyment of using the exercise system.

• Provide adequate drainage away from the equipment and adequate elevation to allow draining by siphon, if should be required.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

1. The exercise system should have access to a power source capable of supplying 220-240 volts AC.

2. It must be wired directly into a grounded circuit with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) or RCD. No other appliances should be on the same circuit.

3. Location of electrical supply 220-240 / 380-415 volt systems require hard wire installed from the main electrical source, to the sub panel, then to the exercise system terminal block. All equipment must be ground fault circuit protected (NOT SUPPLIED).

All electrical wiring must comply with the national electric code.

4. Locations at least 1.5 m (5 feet) from all metal surfaces. A exercise system may be installed within 1.5 m (5 feet) of metals surfaces providing each metal surface is permanently connected by a no. 10mm² (8 awg) copper conductor attached to the bonding wire connector on the heater provided for this purpose. All installations must comply with your national electric codes.

Site Requirements

DECK INSTALLATION

To be certain your deck can support your system you must know the deck’s maximum load capacity. Consult a qualified building contractor or structural engineer before you place the system on an elevated deck.

To find the weight of your system, its contents and occupants, refer to the System Specification chart. This weight per square meter must not exceed the structure’s rated capacity, or serious structural damage could result.

DELIVERY ACCESS

It may be necessary to remove a gate, part of a fence, or other movable obstructions in order to move the system to its installation site. Your site will determine what equipment is necessary to move your system to its final location. A roll back truck with a tilt bed is a good option if your site can be accessed by an across road vehicle. When a small reach is needed for the final placement of your system, a boom truck is ideal. A telehandler vehicle can off load, traverse property and place your system in a more challenging situation or terrain. When access to your site is limited a crane may be used to lift your system over obstructions for precise placement.

The exercise system delivery personnel will supervise the crane delivery and complete the system installation. NOTE: If your system delivery requires the use of a crane, you may be required to pay for its services at the completion of the delivery.

How is your width & height clearance?

Check all gates

Protruding electric meters

Gas Meters

A/C units

Do you have sufficient overhead clearance?

Check low roof eaves, overhanging branches, rain gutters

Is the path clear?

Move away branches, dog house, firewood, etc.

If there is a 90º turn, can we clear it? (the exercise system will not bend)

No more than 6 consecutive stairs without a landing to accommodate the exercise system

IMPORTANT: Fill the exercise system with water before turning on the power.

Your SWIMCROSS exercise system has been carefully designed to give you maximum safety against electrical shock. Connecting the exercise system to an improperly wired circuit will negate many of the exercise system’s safety features. Improper wiring may also cause electrocution, risk of fire, and other risks of injuries. Please read and follow the electrical installation requirements and instructions completely!

SINGLE PHASE WIRING

220-240 VOLT PERMANENTLY CONNECTED

SWIMCROSS exercise systems must be wired in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes. All electrical work should be done by an experienced, licensed electrician. We recommend the use of appropriate electrical conduit, fittings, and wire for all circuits.

The diagram below illustrates how to wire the exercise system model:

• The exercise system requires an electrical service using two 24 amp

GFCI/RCD breakers.

• Disconnect switches with at least 3 mm separation between contacts must be used for all electrical circuits to the exercise system.

• Mount the subpanel in the vicinity of the exercise system, but not closer than 1.5 m (5 feet) away. Your exercise system, must be supplied by a ground fault circuit interrupter - residual current device (RCD) - with a tripping rating not exceeding 30 mA in an electrical subpanel.

• Open exercise system by removing the 4 screws holding the vertical T-spacer to the left of the equipment compartment (see

Door Panel Removal and Replace Instruction on the following page).

• Insert power wires into exercise system from either side towards the bottom, you will find a plastic cap attached to wall.

• Once your exercise system has been filled with water, turn it on and test all of the circuit breakers.

IMPORTANT: If breaker immediately trips, verify that the wires are correctly connected. Breaker should be tested prior to each use. Here’s how:

1. Push the “TEST” button on each GFCI breaker - residual current device (RCD), and observe it click OFF.

2. Wait 30 seconds, then push the breaker switch to the OFF (down) position (to ensure that it has completely disengaged), then push the breaker switch to the ON (up) position. If you don't wait 30 seconds, the exercise system’s power indicator may continue to blink – try again.

If any of the GFCI/RCD breakers fails to operate in this manner, your exercise system may have an electrical malfunction, and you may be at risk of electrical shock. Turn off all circuits and do not use the exercise system until the problem has been corrected by an authorized service agent.

WARNING: Removing, or bypassing any GFCI/RCD breaker will result in an unsafe exercise system and will void the warranty.

IMPORTANT : If you ever need to move or relocate your SWIMCROSS exercise system, it is essential that you understand and apply these installation requirements. Your SWIMCROSS exercise system has been carefully engineered to provide maximum safety against electric shock.

QUICK START-UP INSTRUCTIONS

BEFORE YOU FILL YOUR EXERCISE

SYSTEM

Make sure your exercise system has been properly installed per all local codes, including the location of the exercise system, the foundation of the exercise system, as well as the electrical installation of the exercise system.

DO:

• Know which water treatment system you will be using and make sure you have necessary chemicals available. Read all of the instructions that come with the system.

• Have 5-way Test Strips Available.

• Have pH/Alkalinity Up & Down available.

• Know the Hardness of your water, contact your dealer to help you with this information. See Water Quality and Maintenance for more information.

• Purchase the Clean Screen ™ pre-filter to remove unwanted contaminants from the tap water. This is recommended, not required.

DON'T:

• Fill the exercise system with hot water or cold water with cold water temperature below 10º C (50º F)! Tripping of the high-limit thermostat may result causing your exercise system to stop functioning.

• Fill the exercise System with “softened” water that is outside

WATKINS WELLNESS recommended range, as this may damage the Exercise System’s equipment. See Water Quality and Maintenance for more information.

SWIM JETS

Swim Jet - The Swim Jet provides a powerful stream of water used to simulate a water current.

Getting Started

Page 11

START-UP

Your SWIMCROSS exercise system has been thoroughly tested during the manufacturing process to ensure reliability and long-term customer satisfaction. A small amount of water may have remained in the plumbing after testing and, as a result, may have spotted the exercise system shell or the exercise system siding prior to delivery. Before filling the exercise system, wipe the exercise system shell clean with a soft rag. The following instructions must be read and followed exactly to ensure a successful start-up or refill.

CAUTIONS

• DO NOT CONNECT POWER TO AN EMPTY exercise system.

Power to the exercise system automatically activates critical components within the exercise system, such as controls, heaters, and other systems. If power is supplied to these components prior to both swim side and spa side being filled, the components will be damaged, and this may result in a non-warranty component failure.

• DO NOT use your exercise system after filling until all of the steps listed below are completed.

• DO NOT add chlorine if treating your exercise system with polyhexamethylene biguanide (Biguanide, PHMB, eg. BaquaSpa sanitizer.

® )

• DO NOT use a salt-generated chlorine system, this will damage components and is not covered under your warranty.

• Before filling your exercise system for the first time, remove the equipment compartment door and check to ensure that the unions on either side of the pump(s) and heater are hand-tight and the slide valves are open.

1. CLOSE DRAIN, remove the filter compartment grill skimmer tray and one filter (pg. 24). a. Fill your swim side through the filter compartment using the

CleanScreen ™ pre-filter (optional from dealer) that attaches to your garden hose. The water level of your swim side should be maintained at a level 15 cm (6") below the top of the SWIMCROSS

Exercise System. Reinstall the filter, skimmer tray, and grill once the swim side is filled. b. Fill your spa side through the filter compartment (lift filter basket up and out first) using the CLEANSCREEN pre-filter (optional from dealer) that attaches to your garden hose. The water level of your spa side should be maintained at 2.5 cm (1") above the highest jet.

IMPORTANT: Watkins Wellness does not recommend that the exercise system be filled with “softened” water, as this may damage the exercise system’s equipment.

2. AFTER THE EXERCISE SYSTEM HAS BEEN FILLED with water and the equipment compartment door is secured, power must be applied to the exercise system.

• FIRST activate power to the subpanel from the main house panel.

• NEXT open the door of the electrical subpanel and reset the

GFCI breakers.

• FINALLY, close and secure the subpanel door.

3. TO CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE HYDROMASSAGE JET

SYSTEM IN SPA and to purge any remaining air from the system complete the following steps:

• Press the jets buttons on spa side control panel placing all hydromassage jets on.

• Once the jet system is fully operational (as indicated by strong, non-surging jets), priming of the spa side is complete.

Page 12

• To turn off the jets, press the jets button on the spa side control panel.

• If you do not feel a steady stream of water from your jets, refer to the instructions for priming the pump in the exercise system

TROUBLESHOOTING section.

4.   TO CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE SWIM JET SYSTEM and to purge any remaining air from the system complete the following steps:

• Press the jets buttons on spa side control panel placing all swim jets on.

• Once the jet system is fully operational (as indicated by strong, non-surging jets), priming of the spa side is complete.

• To turn off the jets, press the jets button on the spa side control panel.

• If you do not feel a steady stream of water from your jets, refer to the instructions for priming the pump in the exercise system

TROUBLESHOOTING section.

5. SET THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL to the desired temperature between 15°C (59°F) and 40°C (104°F) on both the swim side and the spa side control panels, then place the exercise system cover on the exercise system and allow the water temperature to stabilize approximately 0.5°C (1°F) per hour. Make sure you secure the cover in place. Periodically check the exercise system water temperature.

When the water temperature reaches desired temperature, proceed to the next step. The exercise system temperature is preprogrammed to reach 29.5°C (85°F) on the swim side and

38.0°C (100°F) on the spa side. You may change the water temperature by pressing the  button on each control panel to raise the temperature, or lower temperature by pressing the

▼button.

6. USING A TEST STRIP AND APPLICABLE CHEMICALS adjust

Total Alkalinity (TA) to 80-120 ppm, Calcium Hardness (CH) to

50-150 ppm, then exercise system water pH to between 7.2 and 7.8. These procedures are listed in the “Water Quality and

Maintenance” section.

OPERATION NOTE: Adjusting the Total Alkalinity as the first step is important, as out-of balance TA will affect your ability to adjust the pH correctly and will prevent the sanitizer from operating effectively.

7. SUPERCHLORINATE THE EXERCISE SYSTEM WATER by adding 1½ teaspoons of chlorine (sodium dichlor) per 950 liters

(250 gallons) of water while running the swim jets at high speed for

10 minutes in the swim side. Disperse the chemicals in the swim area away from the walls. Add into filter area on the spa side while running both jets for 10 minutes.

8. TEST THE EXERCISE SYSTEM WATER FOR CHLORINE

RESIDUAL. If the residual is between 1 and 5 ppm on the test strips, go on to the next step. If the residual is less than 1 ppm, activate the swim jets (on swim side) on high for another 10 minutes and add more chlorine as needed, or if needed activate the jets on the spa side and run both jets for 10 minutes.

WARNING: High sanitizer levels can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs and skin. Always allow the sanitizer level to fall to the recommended range before using the exercise system.

9. RECHECK the Total Alkalinity (TA) 80-120 ppm, Calcium Hardness

(CH) 50-150 ppm, and the pH must be between 7.2 and 7.8.

The exercise system is ready for use when the exercise system water has circulated and the bromine level remains between 1 and 2 ppm or chlorine level remains between 1 and 5 ppm.

Emerald, Ruby, color wheel with abrupt color changes, slow full color wheel and fast full color wheel.

NOTE: If left on, the lights will automatically turn off after 4 hours of operation.

FILTER CYCLES

When your spa side is first powered up, the default filter cycle is set to start at 12:00 pm and 12:00 am and will run for 1 hour each day using the Beginner Water Care mode. Unless you set the time using the control panel (see Date & Time under Settings) the spa side filter cycle will start at power up and run for 1 hours and repeat every 12 hours.

We recommend setting your date and time first, then going to the Water

Care section and making any desired changes for days, start times and length of time in the desired Water Care Mode.

The spa side filter cycle will activate the circulation pump for the entire cycle that has been programmed.

NOTE: Power interruption of the spa side will not change the filter cycle settings when power is regained.

At the beginning of each filter cycle all jets on spa side will first run on high speed for 1 minute (purge cycle) back to back.

FILTER CYCLE SUSPENSION:

The filter cycle will be suspended every time a jet pump or light is activated manually during the filter cycle time. The suspension will end 10 minutes after the completion of the manual use.

POLLING

Polling is necessary for your hot tub to maintain the proper set temperature. The temperature probe located inside the heating tube requires water from the hot tub to pass through it, this is done by automatically turing on your filtration pump for approximately 2 minutes.

Outside temperatures will determine how often the pump is turned on, this can range anywhere from 15 to 90 minute intervals.

ALL OFF / MEMORY ON

Water Quality and

Maintenance

BASIC INFORMATION

It’s important to have clean water. Water maintenance is one of the least understood, yet most important areas of exercise system ownership.

Your dealer can guide you through the process of achieving and maintaining balanced water in your exercise system, given your local conditions.

IMPORTANT: Water Terminology can be found at the end of this section.

• Always read & refer to the owner's manual for complete information.

• Test your water with a test strip once a week, or each time the exercise system is used on either the swim side or spa side.

• Add chemicals in frequent, small amounts to prevent overdosing the exercise system.

• Use the exercise system only when the chlorine level is between

1-5 ppm or manually add chlorine as needed.

• It is the exercise system owner's responsibility to prevent over or under chlorination.

IMPORTANT: It is recommended at a minimum to change 50% of your swim side water every year however, it is dependent on the amount of usage. Drain & refill spa water 2-4 times per year depending on how often you use your spa, and how many people use it. Check with your

ENDLESS POOLS dealer to determine if water in your region has unique qualities - such as high metal or mineral content - that should be addressed.

• Don't inhale fumes, or allow chemicals to come in contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Wash your hands immediately after use.

• Follow the emergency advice on the product label in case of accidental contact, or if the chemical is swallowed. Call a doctor or the local

Poison Control Center. If a doctor is needed, take the product container along with you so that the substance can be identified.

• Don't let chemicals get on surrounding surfaces or landscaping. Don't use a vacuum cleaner to clean up chemical spills.

• Never smoke around chemicals. Some fumes can be highly flammable.

• Don't store any chemicals in the exercise system equipment compartment.

HOW TO ADD CHEMICALS

TO THE WATER

IMPORTANT: All swim side water chemicals, must always be dispersed into the swim area while the swim jets are running on high speed, and must run for a minimum of ten minutes. All spa side water chemicals, must always be dispensed into the filter area while jets are running for a minimum of ten minutes.

TO ADMINISTER EXERCISE SYSTEM

WATER CHEMICALS:

1. Fold back the covers.

2. Turn swim jets ON, run for 10 minutes and turn OFF.

3. Carefully measure the recommended amount of chemical and disperse into swim side while swim jets are on and spa side while spa jets are on. Use care not to splash chemicals on your hands, in your eyes, on the exercise system sheet surface, or on the siding.

Risk of Drowning : Never leave an open exercise system unattended!

WARNING: High sanitizer levels can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs and skin. Always allow the sanitizer level to fall to the recommended range before using the exercise system.

IMPORTANT “SUPER CHLORINATION/NON-CHLORINE SHOCK

TREATMENT” NOTE: After administering a super chlorination treatment or non-chlorine shock to your exercise system, leave the cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the oxidizer gas to vent. A high concentration of trapped oxidizer gas which may exist as a result of the shock treatment (not daily sanitation) may eventually cause discoloration or vinyl degradation to the bottom of the cover.

Maintaining the water quality and the cleanliness of the filters in your exercise system is your responsibility. Keeping the exercise system water balanced prolongs the life of the components and will make the water more comfortable. Your program will depend on your water’s mineral content, how often you use your exercise system, and how many people use it. Watkins Wellness has developed several water care systems and products to simplify water care which are available from authorized ENDLESS POOLS dealers.

CHEMICAL SAFETY

When using chemicals, read the labels carefully and follow directions precisely. Though chemicals protect you and your exercise system when used correctly, they can be hazardous in concentrated form.

Always observe the following guidelines:

• Allow only a responsible person to handle exercise system chemicals.

Keep them out of the reach of children.

• Accurately measure the exact quantities specified, never more. Do not overdose your exercise system.

• Handle all containers with care. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place.

• Always keep chemical containers closed when not in use. Replace

so that they are stabilized or balanced. Balance the water chemistry every time you fill the exercise system with new water and then during the life of that body of water. Keeping the water in balance prevents damage by holding the pH in a safe range and preventing calcium scale formation on exercise system equipment. A low pH can damage metal components whereas a high pH can cause high levels of calcium to form scale. Your dealer should provide a detailed water chemistry orientation soon after your new exercise system is filled for the very first time.

• The following three water components must be kept in balance to avoid damage to the exercise system. Do balance these components in the order they are listed here as each will help you balance the next using a minimum amount of chemicals.

1. Calcium Hardness (CH) – CH is the measure of the amount of dissolved calcium in the water. Low levels can make the water corrosive and high levels cause scale formation on exercise system components. The recommended CH reading is between

50 - 150 ppm . If the CH level is too high, lower it with the calcium remover per instructions. Once in balance, the CH reading normally remains stable until more water is added. Great care must be taken when filling the exercise system from a water softener to ensure that the calcium remains in balance and avoid damage to the exercise system.

2. Total Alkalinity (TA) - TA is a measure of the water’s ability to resist changes of pH or buffer capacity. A low TA allows the pH to fluctuate easily. The recommended TA reading is between 80 - 120 ppm . To raise the TA, use pH/Alkalinity Up (sodium hydrogen carbonate). To lower the TA, use pH/Alkalinity Down (sodium bisulfate). We recommend you check the TA reading once per month. Raising/lowering the TA may cause the pH readings to fluctuate widely. Ignore the pH readings on the test strip while you are balancing the TA.

3. pH - The pH is the measure of the acidity and alkalinity.

Maintaining the proper pH level will optimize the effectiveness of the sanitizer, preventing damage to the exercise system and physical discomfort for exercise system users. A low pH dissipates sanitizer, causes corrosion, and irritates exercise system users. A high pH level will neutralize sanitizer, promote scaling and cloud water. The recommended pH reading is between

7.2 - 7.8

. To lower the pH level, use pH/Alkalinity Down (sodium bisulfate). To raise the pH level, use pH/Alkalinity Up (sodium carbonate).

• Water Conditioners: Exercise system fill water varies from location to location and user to user, therefore it is important to consult with your dealer for an appropriate program. a. CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter –The CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter should be used at every fill and top-off to remove contaminants from the fill water, especially iron, copper, and manganese. Many water sources, including well water, contain high concentrations of minerals that can cause staining of the shell and plastics.

b. Stain and Scale control – For water high in calcium and minerals, it may be necessary to use an anti-scalant like Stain and Scale control. As water evaporates from your exercise system and new water is added, the amount of dissolved minerals like calcium, copper, iron, and manganese will increase. (Minimize evaporation by keeping the cover on the exercise system whenever possible.)

High iron or copper content in the water may produce green or brown stains on the exercise system.

c. Foam Inhibitors - Soap is introduced into the exercise system water from users’ bodies and swimming apparel and can cause the exercise system water to foam when the jets are used. Low levels of calcium hardness (soft water) can increase foaming. Although ozone can oxidize soap residual, it may become necessary to add

Foam Inhibitors to suppress the foam. Excessive soap in the water may require a water change to resolve.

• Oxidizers: Ozone and Monopersulfate (MPS) are oxidizers used to prevent the buildup of contaminants, maximize sanitizer efficiency, minimize combined chlorine, and improve water clarity. They are to be used in conjunction with EPA registered sanitizers. The UVC

Ozone system combines the Corona Discharge generator and a UVC lamp. The UVC lamp kills and damages bacteria DNA on contact providing a maximum water sanitation solution. Chlorine-Free Oxidizer,

Monopersulfate (MPS) is a granular oxidizing chemical.

• Sanitizers: Maintaining the recommended residual level of an

EPA registered sanitizer at all times will decrease the occurrence of unsafe bacteria and viruses in your exercise system water. The recommended Free Available Chlorine (FAC), the amount of available chlorine sanitizer, is 1.0-5.0 ppm . A low FAC can allow bacteria and viruses to grow rapidly in the warm water, and a high FAC can cause discomfort to the user’s eyes, lungs, and skin. Each sanitizer carries its own instructions regarding how much to use and when to add it to the exercise system water. Consult your dealer for their recommendations and instructions on proper sanitizing of the exercise system.

Watkins recommends the following sanitizer:

• Sodium Dichloro-s-Triazinetrione (sodium dichlor or chlorine)

• Biguanide

• Liquid sodium hypochlorite

WARNING: DO NOT use tri-chlor chlorine, bromo-chloro-dimethylhydantoin (BCDMH), or any type of compressed bromine or chlorine, acid or any type of sanitizer which is not recommended by Watkins

Wellness.

THE SWIMCROSS WATER

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

FILLING THE EXERCISE SYSTEM WITH

WATER

Use the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter to remove unwanted contaminants such as rust, dirt, detergents, and algae from the fill water. Dissolved metals, copper, iron, and manganese are also removed. Instructions are included with the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter. Always fill the exercise system through the filter compartment. Do not fill your exercise system using water from a swimming pool as pool chemicals are very different from those used in a exercise system and can damage your exercise system.

ADDING CHEMICALS TO THE WATER

All exercise system water chemicals, must always be dispersed directly into the swim area while swim jets are on high speed or dispensed into the spa side filter area with spa jets on while running for a minimum of ten minutes with the covers off.

Page 22

BUILDING A SANITIZER ROUTINE

During the first month of ownership, measure the sanitizer residual daily in order to establish a baseline of sanitizer needed vs. exercise system usage. Sanitizer needed is the amount of Free Available Chlorine needed to accommodate the number of users and their combined usage time. For example, two exercise system users for twenty minutes every day creates regular demand on the sanitizer that is used to determine

Water Quality and Maintenance

how much sanitizer to add in order to maintain the proper residual. If the usage pattern increases dramatically with invited guests, the amount and frequency of sanitizer required will also increase.

PERFORMING SUPER CHLORINATION/

NON-CHLORINE SHOCK TREATMENT

A weekly or monthly super chlorination (1.5 tsp dichlor/950 liters) or shock (4tbs mps/950 liters) may be required of your chosen sanitation program. Increasing chlorine to 5 ppm for 24-48 hours removes excess waste and chloramines from the water. Sodium dichlor is 6x stronger than MPS and may be more appropriate for those users that experience heavy bather load conditions. Operate swim jets and/or spa jets and leave the covers open for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the oxidizer gas to vent to prevent damage and discoloration to the cover and pillows after administering a super chlorination or shock to your exercise system. This type of damage is considered chemical abuse and is not covered under the terms of the limited warranty.

IMPORTANT: Always allow the Free Available Chlorine to fall below 5 ppm before using your exercise system.

DANGER: Never leave an open exercise system unattended, especially if there are children present!

USING SILVER ION (SWIM SIDE)

Silver ions are introduced into the water via erosion of silver infused beads which inhibits bacteria growth. When combined with MPS, or chlorine, waste is oxidized and removed from the water. It is important to follow the recommended application and maintenance programs outlined for the product’s use. If the exercise system is being used over an extended period of time, such as a whole afternoon or evening, additional sanitizer will be needed. Required: a. One Silver Ion cartridge per 1,893 liters (500 gallons).

b. Silver Ion cartridges to be placed inside filter skimmer tray swim side (maximum of 2 per tray).

c. Weekly Super Chlorinate/Shock the swim side to reactivate the silver ion cartridge, allow the release of silver ions, and quickly destroy any remaining contaminants. Without this weekly shock treatment, the silver ion cartridge may stop releasing silver ions into the water.

IMPORTANT: Use only Dichlor sanitizer. Silver is not compatible with bromine and biguanides. Don't use a water clarifier. Clarifiers will cause the exercise system water to become cloudy.

MANUAL CHLORINE (SODIUM DICHLOR)

Watkins Wellness recommends the use of Concentrated Chlorinating

Granules (sodium dichlor) for sanitizing the water. Sodium dichlor is preferred because it is totally soluble, dissolves quickly, and is nearly pH neutral. The recommended Free Available Chlorine (FAC), the amount of available chlorine sanitize the exercise system, 1.0-5.0 ppm.

If the FAC is too low: Increase the FAC by adding granulated sodium dichlor.

If the FAC is too high: Allow time to pass and the FAC level will naturally drop over time.

If the exercise system smells of chlorine: super chlorinate or shock the exercise system FAC chlorine does not have an odor whereas combined spent chlorine (chloramines) has a strong chlorine odor that can be eliminated by shocking the water.

IMPORTANT: There are several forms of stabilized chlorine available for

Water Quality and Maintenance

Page 23

use in exercise systems and swimming pools. It is extremely important to choose one specifically designed for exercise systems. Use of an incorrect product such as tri-chlor which has a very low pH (2.6) and dissolves too quickly in hot water, results in extremely high levels of chlorine that WILL cause damage to your exercise system. Use of a liquid or compressed bromine/chlorine or unapproved sanitizer WILL damage your exercise system and is specifically not covered under the terms of the limited warranty.

OZONE PLUS UV-C MAINTENANCE

If the water in your swim side lacks the clarity you're used to, you find your chemicals increasingly out of balance and your water simply will not be sanitized like it should be then you should ask your technician to test your Ozone Generator and check you UV-C lamp which may need to be replaced.

DANGER: Corrosive condensation may collect in dips or loops in the tubing. DO NOT DRAIN IT. Have an Ozone Technician remove the acidic liquid.

Water chemistry damage is not covered by the warranty. The chemical levels and water quality in the exercise system are under your direct control. With proper basic care, the exercise system will provide many years of water relaxation. If you are unsure about any chemical or its usage in the exercise system, contact your Authorized Dealer, or

Watkins Wellness.

DO:

• Disperse all chemicals slowly into the swim side with the swim jets on high for ten minutes.

• Place all chemicals slowly into the filter area on the spa side with the jets on for ten minutes.

• Use special care if using baking soda to clean either the interior or exterior plastic surfaces.

DON'T:

• Use compressed sanitizers.

• Use a floater type sanitization system as a low or no maintenance solution to your exercise system maintenance program. Damage to the exercise system shell or components caused by a floating chemical dispenser is specifically not covered under the terms of the limited warranty. Floating dispensers can become trapped in one area and cause an over-sanitization or release large chunks of sanitizer that very quickly chemically burn the shell and cover.

• Use a sanitizer which is not designed for exercise systems.

• Broadcast or sprinkle the chemicals onto the water surface without the swim jets or spa jets running during chemical additions and any additional 10 minutes after dose. This method may cause chemicallyinduced exercise system surface blistering (chemical abuse).

OZONE MAINTENANCE (SPA SIDE)

Reduced or no ozone bubbles coming from heater return (clogged ozone injector) or no ozone, clean the injector:

1. Place 16 ounces of white vinegar into a cup or bucket.

2. Carefully loosen the long tubing attached to the bottom of the ozonator, located in the equipment compartment.

DANGER: Place the end of the tubing into the vinegar, making certain that the end of the tubing sits at the bottom of the container.

3. Run the spa until all 16 ounces of the vinegar are gone. This should allow an ample flow of vinegar to be run through the injector and clear the blockage.

4. Reinstall the tubing to the bottom of the ozonator.

VACATION WATER CARE

INSTRUCTIONS

If you plan to be away from home, follow these instructions to ensure that the water quality of your exercise system is maintained:

SHORT TIME PERIODS (3-5 DAYS):

1. Adjust the pH by following the instructions outlined in the Water Quality and Maintenance section.

2. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures also listed in the

Water Quality and Maintenance section.

3. Lock your cover in place using the coverlocks.

4. Set Water Care Mode to Away from Home (pg.13 & 17).

5. Upon your return, sanitize the water by following the shock procedures, and balance the pH.

LONG TIME PERIODS (5-14 DAYS):

Prior to leaving:

1. At least one day before you leave, set both Water Care Modes to Away.

IMPORTANT: Exercise system water oxidizers such as sodium dichlor (chlorine) maintain their level of effectiveness substantially longer in cool water 15°C ( 59°F ) than in hot water 38°C - 40°C (101°F to

104°F).

2. Adjust the pH as required. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures.

Upon your return:

3. Sanitize the water by following the shock procedures. Return the set temperature to its original setting. The exercise system water will be safe for you to use once the Free Available Chlorine residual level has dropped below 5.0 ppm.

IMPORTANT: If you will not be using your exercise system for an extended period of time (in excess of 14 days) and an outside maintenance service (or neighbor) is not available to assist with the water maintenance, draining or winterizing of the exercise system is recommended.

SUPPLEMENTAL WATER MAINTENANCE

Proper water sanitation and mineral balance (pH control) are absolutely essential for a complete exercise system water maintenance program.

Here are two other popular water additives that are optional:

Mineral Deposit Inhibitors

As water evaporates from your exercise system and new water is added, the amount of dissolved minerals will increase. (Minimize evaporation by keeping the cover on the exercise system whenever possible.) The exercise system water may eventually become “hard”

(Calcium Hardness too high) enough to damage the heater by calcifying its surface. Proper pH control can minimize this.

Occasionally, high iron or copper content in the water may produce green or brown stains on the exercise system. A stain and scale inhibitor may help to reduce these metals.

IMPORTANT: Well water may contain high concentrations of minerals.

The use of a low water volume, extra-fine pore water filter (in-line pre-

Page 24

filter such as the CLEAN SCREEN pre-filter) will help to remove many of the larger particles during the filling of the exercise system. In-line pre-filters can be purchased at your local ENDLESS POOLS dealer.

Foam Inhibitors

Exercise system water requires changing due to the buildup of soap in the water. Typically, soap will cause the exercise system water to foam when the jets are used. Soap is introduced into the exercise system water from two sources: users’ bodies, which retain a soap residual after showering, and swimming apparel, which retains soap after washing.

Foam inhibitors can suppress foam, but cannot remove soap from the water. Soap is very difficult to remove from the water because soap is not oxidized by any chemical added to the exercise system. Only ozone can oxidize soap. Eventually the soap build-up in the water will be concentrated, resulting in an unclean feeling on the bather’s skin, which is impossible to remedy. When this occurs, it’s time to drain and refill the exercise system.

GLOSSARY

The following chemical terms are used in this Water Quality and

Maintenance section. Understanding their meaning will help you to better understand the water maintenance process.

Bromamines: Compounds formed when bromine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Unlike chloramines, bromamines have no pungent odor, and are effective sanitizers.

Bromine: A halogen sanitizer (in the same chemical family as chlorine).

Bromine is commonly used in stick, tablet, or granular form however, stick and tablet form should NOT be used.

Calcium Hardness: The amount of dissolved calcium in the exercise system water. This should be approximately 50 -150 ppm. High levels of calcium can cause cloudy water and scaling. Low levels can cause harm to the exercise system equipment.

Chloramines: Compounds formed when chlorine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Chloramines can cause eye irritation as well as having a strong odor. Unlike bromamines, chloramines are weaker, slower sanitizers.

Chlorine: An efficient sanitizing chemical for exercise systems. Watkins

Wellness recommends the use of sodium dichlor-type granulated chlorine. This type is preferred because it is totally soluble and nearly pH neutral.

Chlorine (or Bromine) Residual: The amount of chlorine or bromine remaining after chlorine or bromine demand has been satisfied. The residual is, therefore, the amount of sanitizer which is chemically available to kill bacteria, viruses and algae.

Corrosion: The gradual wearing away of metal and plastic exercise system parts, usually caused by chemical action. Generally, corrosion is caused by low pH or by water with levels of TA, CH, pH or sanitizer which are outside the recommended ranges.

Halogen: Any one of these five elements: fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine.

MPS: Monopersulfate is a non-chlorine oxidizer.

Nitric Acid: The formulation of nitric acid, a highly corrosive chemical, is a byproduct of the ozone generating process. Nitric acid is produced in very small quantities and is readily dissolved in the water stream with ozone.

Oxidizer: The use of an oxidizing chemical is to prevent the buildup of contaminants, maximize sanitizer efficiency, minimize combined chlorine and improve water clarity. See MPS and Ozone.

Ozone: Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent which is produced in nature and artificially by man. Ozone forms no byproducts, oxidizes

Water Quality and Maintenance

chloramines, and will not alter the water’s pH.

pH: The measure of the exercise system water’s acidity and alkalinity. ppm: The abbreviation of “parts per million”, the standard measurement of chemical concentration in water. Identical to mg/l (milligrams per liter).

Reagent: A chemical material in liquid, powder, or tablet form for use in chemical testing.

Sanitizer: Sanitizers are added and maintained at recommended residuals to protect bathers against pathogenic organisms which can cause disease and infection in exercise system water.

Scale: Rough calcium-bearing deposits that can coat exercise system surfaces, heaters, plumbing lines, and clog filters. Generally, scaling is caused by mineral content combined with high pH. Additionally, scale forms more readily at higher water temperatures.

Super-Chlorination: Also known as “shock treatment.” Super-

Chlorination is a process of adding significant doses of a quick dissolving sanitizer (“dichlor” is recommended) to oxidize non-filterable organic waste and to remove chloramines and bromamines.

Total Alkalinity (TA): The amount of bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides present in exercise system water. Proper total alkalinity is important for pH control. If the TA is too high, the pH is difficult to adjust.

If the TA is too low, the pH will be difficult to hold at the proper level. The desired range of TA in exercise system water is 80 to 120 ppm.

Care and Maintenance

Your SWIMCROSS exercise system is manufactured from the highest quality, most durable materials available. Even so, the exercise system care and maintenance program you develop will ultimately determine how long your exercise system, and its individual components, will last.

Regular maintenance and following the advice in this section will help you to protect your investment.

2. Pull the filter grate from the bottom up until it unlocks from the wall.

IMPORTANT: ONLY

PULL FILTER GRATE UP

SLIGHTLY.

3. Pull filter grate away from wall and set aside.

4. Pull skimmer tray away from wall, remove and clean.

5. To remove the filter, turn using the handle in the center of the filter counter-clockwise.

FILTER MAINTENANCE

At least once a week, check and clean the skimmer trays & filter basket to ensure proper filter flow. Remove leaves, foreign matter, and debris. It is very important to keep your exercise system filter cartridges clean and free of particles to ensure proper water flow. Clean filters enables the hydrotherapy system to function properly and allows for more efficient filter cycles. Depending on how frequently your exercise system is used, we recommend cleaning the exercise system filter cartridges every four weeks. If this is not done, the filter may clog and restrict water flow, which causes improper filtration, poor jet performance and may possibly freeze.

IMPORTANT: The frequency and duration of use, and the number of occupants all contribute to determining the appropriate time between filter cleanings. More use means that more frequent filter cleanings will be required.

SPA SIDE FILTER CARTRIDGE

REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS

Place the spa side contol panel in the "Standby" mode, then proceed as follows:

1. Pull skimmer basket straight up and out.

PREVENTION OF FREEZING

Your exercise system has been designed and engineered for year-round use in any climate. In some areas, extremely cold temperatures (below

-12°C or 10°F) combined with strong wind, may cause partial freezing of the jet pump, even though the water inside the exercise system remains at the selected temperature. The energy efficiency of the exercise system may also decrease during these cold periods, as the heater will cycle more frequently. As an additional precaution against partial freezing of some of the components, the equipment compartment can be insulated with an insulating kit available from your local dealer. This insulating kit will also help to maximize the exercise system’s energy efficiency.

DRAINING YOUR

EXERCISE SYSTEM

Your exercise system uses two drains, one for the swim side and one for the spa side. Both drains are located on the same side as the control panels towards the bottom.

1. Turn off all GFCI breakers in sub-panel, or main electrical panel.

Figure 1

Handle

Figure 2

2. Locate the drain valves

(bottom, lower right of control panels) for the exercise system.

Pull on handle (Figure 1, pliers may be used to pull handle) until you reach the mid position then rotate handle slightly to fully extended drain tube (drain cap and 2.5 cm of the drain tube is exposed) (Figure 2) then remove the drain cap

(Figure 3).

NOTE: Do not remove drain cap in mid position. Attach the garden hose to the end

Drain Cap with

Handle

Figure 3

Drain

Tube

Figure 4 of the drain (to avoid flooding of the foundation surrounding the exercise system) making sure not to push the drain tube inward. Route the outlet of the hose to an appropriate draining area.

NOTE: Exercise system water with a high sanitizer level may harm plants and grass.

3. Push the garden hose and drain tube half-way back towards the exercise system (Figure 4) which will start the gravitational flow.

Drain tube must be in the mid position for the exercise system to drain.

IMPORTANT: All models will drain almost completely through the drain valve. Equipment such as the jet pump and heating system may not completely drain. Any water remaining within the plumbing or equipment after draining will only need to be removed if the exercise system is being winterized.

4. After your exercise system is empty, clean the shell and filter cartridges.

NOTE: When warmer weather returns (approx. 15°C - 21°C or 60°-

70°F), the insulating kit must be removed to prevent overheating of the jet pump.

WINTERIZING YOUR EXERCISE

SYSTEM

An SWIMCROSS exercise system may be used year round, even in colder climates. If you will not be using the exercise system during the winter in an area where freezing is a problem, special consideration must be taken to protect the pool and auxiliary equipment if either is located outside. If you have any questions regarding precautions to take against freezing, please call your ENDLESS POOLS Dealer.

CARE OF THE PILLOWS

The exercise system pillows will provide years of comfort if treated with care. They have been positioned above the water level to minimize the bleaching effects of chlorinated water and other exercise system water chemicals. To extend their life, whenever the exercise system shell is being cleaned, the exercise system pillows should be removed and cleaned. Body oils can be removed with a mild soap and water solution.

ALWAYS rinse off the exercise system pillows thoroughly to remove any soap residue. If the exercise system is not going to be used for a long period of time (that is during a vacation or if the exercise system is winterized), or when the exercise system water is being superchlorinated, the exercise system pillows should be removed until the next use of the exercise system.

TO REMOVE AND REPLACE THE

PILLOWS:

1. Carefully lift one end of the pillow away from the exercise system shell.

Page 26

2. Continue lifting one end until all pillow retainers are released from the pillow.

IMPORTANT : Just pulling the pillow straight up and out of the shell recess will eventually damage the pillow. This abuse is not covered under warranty.

3. To reinstall the exercise system pillow, carefully bend the pillow slightly to allow one of the pillow retainers to slip into the recess in the back of the pillow.

4. Keeping the pillow slightly bent, slide the other pillow retainer into the recess in the back of the pillow.

5. After all the pillow retainers are in place, press the pillow down into the recess in the exercise system shell.

Care and Maintenance

CARE OF THE EXTERIOR

EXERCISE SYSTEM SHELL

Your SWIMCROSS exercise system has an acrylic shell. Stains and dirt generally will not adhere to your exercise system’s surface. A soft rag or a nylon scrubber should easily remove most dirt. Most household chemicals are harmful to your exercise system’s shell (see below for detailed information on cleaning agents). Always rinse off any exercise system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

IMPORTANT:

1. The following products are the ONLY approved cleaning agents for your SWIMCROSS

Shine, or Soft Scrub ® exercise system shell: plain water, Spa

. The use of alcohol or any other household cleaner other than those listed to clean the exercise system shell surface is NOT recommended. DO NOT use any cleaning products containing abrasives or solvents since they may damage the shell surface, specifically: Simple Green ® , Windex ® or Spa Mitt. NEVER

USE HARSH CHEMICALS! Damage to the shell by use of harsh chemicals is not covered under the warranty. Always rinse off any exercise system shell cleaning agent with fresh water.

2. Iron and copper in the water can stain the exercise system shell if allowed to go unchecked. Ask your ENDLESS POOLS dealer about a Stain and Scale Inhibitor to use if your exercise system has a high concentration of dissolved minerals. ( WATKINS WELLNESS recommends Stain & Scale Defense.)

3. Keep all cleaners out of the reach of children and use care when applying.

EXERCISE SYSTEM CABINET

All exercise systems use the exclusive all-climate cabinet designed for years of performance. The unique design is made from a rigid polymer for durability and adds a film finish that provides a rich appearance.

Cleaning consists of simply spraying the cabinet with a mild soap and water solution to remove any stains and residue.

Do not rub the cabinet with an abrasive material or use abrasive cleaners as this may damage its surface.

VINYL COVER (OPTIONAL)

The vinyl cover is an attractive, durable foam insulation product. Monthly cleaning and conditioning are recommended to maintain its beauty.

To clean and condition the vinyl cover without a lifter:

1. Remove the covers from the exercise system and gently lean against a wall or fence.

2. With a garden hose, spray the covers to loosen and rinse away dirt or debris.

3. Using a large sponge and/or a soft bristle brush, and using a very mild soap solution (one teaspoon dishwashing liquid with two gallons of water), or baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), scrub the vinyl top in a circular motion. Do not let the vinyl dry with a soap film on it before it can be rinsed clean.

4. Scrub the cover’s perimeter and side flaps. Rinse clean with water.

5. Rinse off the underside of the cover with water only (use no soap), and wipe it clean with a dry rag.

IMPORTANT: To remove tree sap, use cigarette lighter fluid (not charcoal lighter fluid). Use sparingly, and rinse with a saddle soap solution immediately afterwards, then wipe dry.

Service Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

Your SWIMCROSS exercise system has been designed to provide years of trouble-free use. As with any appliance, problems may occasionally occur that require the expertise of a qualified service person. Though such simple repairs as resetting a GFCI switch or breaker, or resetting a high limit thermostat may not require a service call, they may indicate that a more serious condition exists. These conditions may require an experienced service person. Before calling for service, please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide. Always retain your original sales receipt for future reference.

GFCI AND HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT

If your exercise system fails to operate at any time, first check the power supply to the exercise system.

Check each of the GFCI breakers in the subpanel. If a GFCI has tripped, reset it. If it will not reset, this may be an indication of a ground fault

(short circuit) within the electrical components. Contact an Authorized

Service Technician for a complete diagnosis.

If upon checking the GFCI’s you find that they have not tripped, check the house breaker panel and ensure the main breaker for the electrical circuit supplying the exercise system has not tripped. If it has, this is an indication that the circuit was either overloaded or a ground fault exists between the breaker panel and the exercise system receptacle or subpanel. Contact a qualified electrician.

If upon checking the main house breaker and exercise system

GFCI’s you find no failures, check the high limit thermostat. To check it, simply turn off power to the exercise system for 30 seconds. This will automatically reset the high limit thermostat if it has tripped. If the exercise system energizes once you turn the power back on, this indicates reduced water flow through the heating system. Tripping of the high limit thermostat is normally a result of one or a combination of these problems. 1) clogged filter cartridge(s), 2) blockage within the system plumbing, 3) a non-functioning heater circulation pump, 4) power was not disconnected from the exercise system before it was drained,

5) an air lock in the plumbing lines. (The Power Indicator on the front of the exercise system’s control panel will also be blinking if the high limit thermostat circuit has tripped.)

If the exercise system does not function after tripping and resetting the GFCI’s or resetting the high limit thermostat, then the problem should be referred to an Authorized Service Technician. Refer to the

Troubleshooting Guide for additional service information.

MISCELLANEOUS SERVICE

INFORMATION

The control and high-limit thermostats are equipped with electronic sensors that are connected to the exercise system’s plumbing. Never cut or kink the wires that connect the sensors to the thermostats within the control box.

The jet pump is equipped with a thermal overload cutoff switch that is designed to protect the pump from overheating. If the pump shuts itself off in an older exercise system, it could indicate failure of the pump motor bearings. If the pump shuts itself off in a new exercise system, it is usually the result of one or a combination of the following factors:

• Thermal overload: Although mass-produced, not all thermal overload cutoffs are exactly the same. Some are more sensitive than others and will shut the pump off at lower temperatures.

Page 28

• High temperature: All SWIMCROSS exercise system models are equipped with a jet pump shroud that vents the heat generated by the pump motor to the outside of the equipment compartment, and back into the exercise system water. If the vent is blocked by masonry, grass or debris, overheating of the jet pump may occur. Once the pump motor has cooled sufficiently and any blockage has been removed from the vent opening, the jet pump can be restarted.

• Friction: Sometimes the moving parts of a new pump are tight enough to cause heat build-up due to friction. After a normal break-in period, the pump will run cooler.

• Improper wiring: If the exercise system is connected with an extension cord, and/or the house wiring is undersized, the pump may starve for voltage and therefore may draw more amperage and generate excessive heat.

• If the pump is shutting down due to excessive heat, make sure the equipment compartment has adequate ventilation. The air gap at the bottom must not be blocked. Should your jet pump continue to shut off after short periods of use, contact a qualified service technician.

ACTS INVALIDATING WARRANTY

The limited warranty is void if the SWIMCROSS exercise system has been improperly installed, subjected to alteration, misuse, or abuse, or if any repairs on the exercise system are attempted by anyone other than an authorized representative of Watkins Wellness. Alteration shall include any component or plumbing change, electrical conversion, or the addition of any non-approved sanitation or water purification device or heating system which contributes to component or unit failure or unsafe operating system. Misuse and abuse shall include any operation of the exercise system other than in accordance with Watkins Wellness printed instructions, or use of the exercise system in an application for which it is not designed; specifically: use of the exercise system in a non-residential application; damage caused by operation* of the exercise system at water temperatures outside the range of 2°C and

49°C (35°F and 120°F); damage caused by a dirty, clogged or calcified filter cartridge; damage to the exercise system surface caused by the use of tri-chloro chlorine, BCDMH, misuse of chemical tablets in a floater, acid, or any other exercise system chemicals or exercise system surface cleaners which are not recommended by Watkins

Wellness; damage caused by allowing undissolved exercise system sanitizing chemicals to lie on the exercise system surface (no exercise system surface material can withstand this kind of abuse); damage to components or exercise system surface caused by improper water chemistry maintenance; and damage to the exercise system surface caused by leaving the exercise system uncovered while empty of water and in direct exposure to sunlight (this may cause solar heating distress in warm weather regions). These are considered abuses and may invalidate this warranty.

*Operation of the exercise system does not mean “use” of the exercise system! Watkins Wellness does not recommend using the exercise system if the water temperature is above or below the exercise system’s control panel temperature range.
