1. Foreword
This manual is indented to inform you correctly and exhaustively, i.e. also over potential risks caused by the
pump. The user, fitter and maintenance technician is responsible to check the compliance with the procedures and
advises in this manual. The Bubble King® skimmer pump
re built with state-of-the art technology and to comply with
existing safety regulations. Nevertheless this device may
cause risks for individuals and for property, if it is used improperly or not regarding to its designated use, or if safety
advises are ignored.
If the pump is used improperly, the liability of the manufacturer and the operating permit are void. For safety reasons
children and juveniles younger than 16 years as well as
people who do not recognize possible risks or who are not
familiar with this manual may not use the device. Please
preserve this manual carefully. In the case of a disposal
please hand over the complete manual.
Please keep up this user manual carefully!
On change of ownership pass the complete user guide!
The combination of water and electricity can be a serious
threat to life and limb, when not installed according to directions or when used improperly.
2. Use of the pump
!
IT IS NOT ALLOWD TO CUT THE WIRING OR THE POWER PLUG. DOING SO WILL IMMEDIATELY VOID ALL
WARRANTY AND LIABILITY OF THE MANUFACTURER.
Only use wiring, installations, adapters, extension cables
and connection cables with grounding-typ plugs, which are
approved for outdoor usage (DIN VDE 0620) with sufficient cable diameter. Do not pull on the wiring of the device
and to not use the wiring to carry the device! If the wiring
is damaged or broken the device may no longer be used!
Reparation is not possible as the wiring is permanently
grouted in the engine housing. Take care that the power plug never falls into water or gets wet. If the plug gets
wet in any kind, it has to be opened by a professional and
cleaned by purging with demineralised water. Protect the
plug and the wiring against heat, oil, UV light and sharp
corners. The manufacturer is not liable in any way for any
damages, which are made by improper installation or by
the carelessness of the user or installer.
In general, when put out of service, the pump has to be
cleaned extremely thoroughly. Before it newly brought into
service the ease-of-movement of the needle wheel has to
be checked by hand. If the needle wheel cannot be moved
round by hand, the pump needs to be disassembled and
cleaned completely. It is forbidden to disconnect the plug
from the pump while the device is in use. This can result
in serious damages to the electronic components and to
dangerous situations due to grounding problems.
Only use the device when no body parts have contact to the
water! Before you reach into the water always disconnect the
pump from the power supply. Compare the electrical specification on the type label of the device with the specification
of the power supply. Make sure that the device is connected
to an ELCB (earth leakage circuit breaker) with an assigned
leakage rating of max. 30 mA (DIN VDE 0100T739). Only
operate the device on a correctly installed power plug.
The wiring may not be modified or replaced. Electrical
installations always have to be compliant and according
to national and international directives and requirements.
Never open the case of the device or of the appending
parts if this is not explicitly suggested in the user manual.
Never apply technical modifications the device. Only use
original spare parts and accessories. Let only authorized
customer service facilities conduct reparations. Never use
the pump with other liquids than water.
Keep the power plug and the wiring dry! Install the wiring
protected in order to avoid damages.
If you have any questions or problems consult an electrician, your dealer or the manufacturer Royal Exclusiv®.

3. Fields of application
The Bubble King® pump is suitable to skim for sea water,
marinewater and saltwater. It can haul clean as well as –
to a certain extent – polluted water. The pump is not suitable for water with larger particles. The pollutants may not
exceed 0.8mm in size.
In general the pump is to be used for applications with
clean water. Clean water in this case is defined as water not containing solid particles, which could damage the
bearings. Examples for particles or pollutants not suitable
are sand, lime precipitation or pyrolosite after a manganese peroxide treatment in a pond. Damages caused by
such pollutants in the water do not fall under warranty or
service.
5. Putting into operation of the pump
Never use the device without water throughput. The
pump will automatically start when the power connection
is established.
The pump may be used in almost any position. However
it has to stand stable on a solid base. The inlet pipe is
connected to the suction side of the pump (see figure 1).

The pump has to be filled with water befor it is set into
operation.
Temperature of the liquid: Environment temperature:
Max. working pressure: +2 to +40°C.
0 °C to max. +50 °C
2 bar (20m head of water)

4. Installation/Fitting
Caution:
Before you install the pump you have to read the manual
thoroughly. Damages, which are caused because the manual was not read thoroughly, do not fall under warranty.
When unpacking the pump, check whether all parts were
delivered completely and undamaged. Detected damages
have to be reported within 24 hours after the purchase
of the pump at your retail location. When unpacking the
pump, it is possible that the inside of the pump is wet. The
pump is tested before it leaves the factory.
It has to be assured that the pump can be de-aerated
through the outlet (2).

5
Prior to its packaging the pump is treated with a biodegradable disinfectant in order to neutralize possibly present
bacteria. The pump therefore has to be purged with water
thoroughly before usage.
Please check the pump for damages before you set it into
operation. Should the pump have damages it may not be
set into operation. Please inform your retailer immediately
if the pump is set into operation even though it is damaged, any warranty and liability is void.
Pull the plug electrical socket and make sure that the pump
cannot be switch on. During the course of the installation
the pump may not be connected to the power supply. To
avoid injuries take care to reach not into the opening of
the pump with your hands or fingers, when the pump is
connected to the power supply.
The pump can be placed submersed (4) or out of the water (dry) (5). In the case of a dry placement, adequate air
ventilation has to be assured. Furthermore the pump may
not be exposed to direct sunlight. Place the pump as close
as possible to the actual water connection; hence the inlet
piping has to be as short as possible.
If the pump is placed external (dry), in this case the inlet
piping of the pump has to be filled with water before the
pump is set to operation. In such a setup the risk of the
pump to run dry is very high. Damages which are caused
by the pump running dry are excluded from warranty.

5.1. Inlet Pipe (intake side)
If no sufficient amount of water reaches the pump because
the drag of the inlet pipe is to strong, the pump will consume
a lot of power and the electronics gets very warm in the long
run. The electronic contains a self-protection mechanism
for this case and turn off. If the pump delivers less and less
water after hours or days of operation it is possible that the
inlet piping is too large.
5.3. Electrical connection – setting-up operation
Check whether voltage and frequency on the type label of
the pump match the supply voltage. The person, that´s responsible for the installation, has to check whether a standard conform grounding is available.
By problems caused by low water level:
The fuse for the electrical net has to be one level higher
than the fuse of the pump.
The pump inlet must not cause a swirl like shown on the
fig. on the left below, to prevent permanent damage to the
pump. Please do not use a 90 degrees angular tube, but a
90 degrees arch. Due to the deflection angles are reducing
the performance more than 50 % compared to an arch.
The nozzle has been trimmed to 40.0 mm to allow easy
installation of an arch.
It is necessary to check if the electrical installation has a
highly sensitive earth leakage circuit breaker (ELCB/GFCI)
is available (30mA – DIN VDE 0100T739).
6. Setup instructions, adjustable nozzle
All internal Bubble King® skimmer pump are fit with an adjustable water inlet nozzle. Using the nozzle mainly adjusts
the water flow rarely affecting the air performance.
Please note:
A skimmer performs best, when a perfectly well defined
amount of water and air enters the skimmer on the lowest
point of the device. The Red Dragon® Bubble King® pumps
has a so called “ideal operation point“. The ideal point is
well defined and will be found as shown below:
Please turn to completely screw nozzle, as on the upper
left picture shown. Then please turn to the nozzle to the
left, counter clockwise.
Usually 1 - 1 1⁄2 turn. This is the best operating point.
The black dots are used only for orientation.
Always use bows instead of elbows.
5.2. Pressure Pipe (Pump outlet/ pressure side)
The pressure pipe should has to have the same diameter
as the intake of the pump in order to minimize pressure
loss, high flow rates and noise.
The user may exceed or under-run this point as desired.
Under-running the point may be advisable to reduce the
skimmer performance in coral tanks with only a few fish.
Increasing the flow-through may be advisable on tanks
with many fish or in the case of disaster. A dying big Tridacna, algae emitting spores or poisoning triggered by dying
animals or similar reasons require a fast and wet foaming.
Notice:
Each spin increases water flow-through by
approx. 500 litres. Operation without nozzle screw is
prohibited. The air flow would be reduced by half and
water flow would be increased by 300%. In this state
the pump will be overloaded and within a short time
automatically switched off. The noise level also would
exceed dramatically.

7. Maintenance of the pump
We recommend the cleaning of the Bubble King® pump at
frequent intervals respectively to check the needle wheel
for foreign objects. To check the needle wheel it is not necessary to remove the pump from the filter tank.
Unplug the pump from the mains. Remove the jet tube
from its seating. Turn the skimmer into your direction and
optically check the first row of needles for foreign objects
like snails, mussels, activated carbon pellets, filter cotton
or food debris. In case of an accumulation of debris in the
pump, the pump must be disassembled.
Red Dragon® Bubble King® pumps have a built-in automatic shutoff. The internal circuit is permanently measuring
the pumps power consumption. In the case of serious calcifying, and thus, stiff bearings, the internal circuit will classify the rising power consumption as a failure and switch
off the pump, due to safety reasons. Because of this behaviour a Bubble King® pump never can be damaged by
smouldering fire or other damage due to a short circuit.
Just plug off and on to bring the pump back into operation.
Please note, that it is not advisable to trick the internal
circuit into normal operation by a repeated switching of the
device. If a Red Dragon® Bubble King® pump was switched
off, a failure occurred apparently, which must be solved.
If happened, usually only a cleaning session is required.
IMPORTANT:
Permanently tricking the circuit may result in
severe motor damage, which will not be
covered by warranty.
7.1. Disassembling the pump
After removing the pump from the silicone hose please
remove the inlet nozzle from the designated opening. Put
the skimmer onto a flat, soft surface or a towel and start to
disassemble the pump as shown below.
You just need a standard mid size screw driver and an
Allen wrench M5 required for a complete disassembling.
Turn off the 4 housing screws and remove the head.
Caution: The pump holders are made from plastic. Just
tighten the screws until the gap between pump head and
holder was closed. Overtighten the screws may damage
the threads. The housing screws were made from titan
and, thus, are 100 % salt water proof.
Use your fingers to grab behind the needle wheel and softly pull the wheel from its guidance. Clean the wheel by the
help of a sharp tip.
Please decalcify the wheel unit in an applicable decalcifying bath.

If the impeller group extremely calcified,
solve the plate between engine and rotor. Cover enter
with a small slot screwdriver, !carefully!
2.2. Deliming and cleaning the impeller
Important notice:
The backside bearing of the wheel unit
should have your special attention, because most
failures result from there.
If the bearing fits on the shaft, like shown on the picture on
the left, when pulled out, then manually remove it from the
shaft. And the bearing after removal from the shaft.
(shown on the picture on the right)
DO NEVER use hydrochloric acid even
when thoroughly diluted!!!
The pump may be seriously damaged.
Applicable are, formic acid, acetic acid and phosphoric
acid or even household decalcifiers for water conditioners
and coffee machines. Basically the wheel bearing of the
motor should be also decalcified. Thick, greasy residues
should be removed under running water by the help of a
semi hard brush.
Under no circumstances put the bearing loosely onto the
shaft and then insert the wheel unit into the motor block.
The bearing wont fit in its slide, and thus, the pump will hum
extremely after putting into operation. The bearing must securely installed into its slide before assembling the wheel
unit. After the bearing was installed into its slide, the O-ring
seal must be seated by the help of a mid-size screw driver.
After thoroughly rinsing of all decalcified parts with water,
we now begin to reassemble the device.
Attention:
Please consider the safety regulations imprinted when
using decalcifiers. Please wear protective clothing and
safety glasses.
We recommend to check the Red Dragon® pump already
after three months, to determine the possible maintenance
intervals that, can be depending on precipitation between
2-12 months.

At first, check if the bearing sleeve of the wheel unit on the
back was seated properly. Now take the wheel unit and
position in a way that the rectangular slide shows upward.
This rectangular slide will fit into the motor only, when
showing upwards. Wheel unit with slide and the counterpart on the motor shown on the picture on the left.
For assembly: fix the O-ring in position, then carefully let the magnetic impeller with the lip on top click into place.
Caution ! Strong magnetic forces !!
Bubble King® pumps are optimally on Bubble King® skimmer set and tested. You should use a skimmer from another company, it may be that the specified performance
data will not be achieved. In the external/dry preparation/
use of the pump, it may be also a different performance
results. Please consider this.
And now please enjoy your new
Red Dragon® Bubble King® pump.
A regular maintenance guarantees a long run.
