Congratulations, you are now the owner of a Zodiac pH Perfect, which allows you to regulate the pH of your pool simply and easily.

The pH Perfect measures the pH value between 0.0 (acidic) and 14.0 (alkaline) using a pH sensor on the filtration system, which constantly analyzes the water in your pool.

Depending on the value measured, the pH Perfect dosing pump injects the amount of product needed to maintain the balance of the water in the pool.

The pH Perfect will function with either acid or alkaline dosing.

3.2.

Rule for injecting pH Perfect

Proportional cyclic dosing - exclusive to Zodiac

• To reach the set point in the best possible conditions (the quickest, but with the least possible corrective solution), your pH Perfect automatically detects the difference of the pH value measured in the pool compared with the desired set point (default value = 7.4 pH).

• This proportional injection is cyclic and the cycle time is 10 minutes.

What will change in dosing is the different times of injection and pause.

• This type of dosing makes it possible to reach the set point quickly and precisely with the following advantages:

– Optimal consumption of corrective solution (better balance of water, little action on the buffering capacity or TAC).

– Water treatment functioning in the best conditions (the active chlorine is more effective with a good pH).

Rule for injecting pH Perfect

The proportions are adjusted automatically and the different dosages are distributed in steps of 0.15 pH.

• E.g.: For 4 cycles with a set point of 7.4 pH and acid regulation (pH minus):

– pH ≤ 7.55 : 20 % injection (2 minutes) & 80 % pause (8 minutes)

– pH ≤ 7.70 : 50 % injection (5 minutes) & 50 % pause (5 minutes)

– pH ≤ 7.85 : 75 % injection (7 minutes 30 secondes) & 25 % pause

(2 minutes 30 secondes)

– pH ≥ 7.90 : 100 % injection (10 minutes, continuous)

Note: The rule for injecting is reversed if an alkaline dose is chosen.

4.5.

“ OFA ” over - feed protection

Your pH Perfect is equipped with protection to prevent over- feeding with corrective solution in the event of a problem on the pH sensor, for example.

The purpose of this protection, called “ OFA” (Over Feed Alarm), is to pause the appliance if it has not reached the set point at the end of the time; set by default at 240 minutes. Figure F .

The “ OFA” over- feed protection functions in 2 steps:

> #1: “ OFA alarm ” flashes on the LCD screen after 70 % of the OFA programmed time has been used without reaching the set point. However, the appliance continues running.

> #2: “ Stop OFA” is displayed on the LCD screen after reaching 100 % of the OFA programmed time (240 minutes in the original setting). The appliance is then safe.

• To cancel this protection and start your pH Perfect, press the “ CAL / Enter ” button (possible on the 2 steps of the OFA alarm).

Note: Make sure that the pH sensor is in good condition. If necessary, clean and / or recalibrate it.

• The over-feed protection is set by default for a maximum time of 240 minutes.

It is possible to adjust it from “ OFF ” (disabled) to “ 240 ” by intervals of

1 minute.

Note: A fairly high setting is strongly recommended to avoid any inopportune and / or unjustified start.

• To regulate the OFA when in the “ Settings ” menu, enable the option list by pressing the “ CAL / Enter ” button (the value in minutes flashes). Then select the value chosen using the “ up ” and “ down ” navigation buttons.

The adjustment is made by intervals of 1 minute.

Accept the choice by pressing the “ CAL / Enter ” button.

Special functions of the OFA

To prevent “ false ” alarms just after installing a pH Perfect (if the pH is poorly balanced), the OFA may be temporarily disabled for 24 or 48 hours:

> Press “ up ” & “ down ” & “ CAL”: OFA disabled for 24 hours (automatically re - enabled).

> Press “ up ” & “ down ” & “ SET ”: OFA disabled for 48 hours (automatically re - enabled).

4.6.

Type of calibration

Your pH Perfect is calibrated by default in 2 steps: pH7 and pH4. Figure G .

This can be done in one single step on pH7 (faster but with lower measurement reliability over time).

To change it when in the “ Settings ” menu, enable the option list by pressing the

“ CAL / Enter ” button (a small arrow appears on the right of the screen and the type of calibration flashes). Then select the type chosen using the “ up ” and

“ down ” navigation buttons.

Accept the choice by pressing the “ CAL / Enter ” button.

Note: If calibration is done in one step, the procedure described in paragraph 3.1.

will automatically stop at the end of calibration with solution 7.

4.7.

Detection that filtration is in progress

Your pH Perfect is equipped by default with a double power feed for keeping the appliance live in order to calibrate the pH sensor when filtration is stopped.

However, it is possible to disable this function if the electrical connection is different (work done by a professional).

!

Caution:

The pH Perfect no longer takes into account whether filtration is in progress and is likely to inject corrective solution when there is no flow in the pipes. Disabling is only possible if the mains power cable is controlled by the filtration.

To change this function when in the “ Settings ” menu, enable the option list by pressing the “ CAL / Enter ” button (a small arrow appears on the right of the screen and the status of detection of filtration flashes). Then select “ ON ” or

“ OFF ” using the “ up ” and “ down ” navigation buttons. Figure H .

Accept the choice by pressing the “ CAL / Enter ” button.
