Hydroxypure Manual
1.OVERVIEW
The Hydroxypure system is the most advanced breakthrough in swimming pool water sanitisation in recent
history. Hydroxypure is a truly chlorine-free water treatment system. It’s free of odours and taste, is soft and
gentle on the skin. What’s more, no shower is required after swimming. It’s been described by users as “just
like a refreshing swim in a natural spring”.
The Hydroxypure system is advanced patented technology that has been adapted from the treatment of
drinking water and applied to swimming pool sanitation. Using the advanced oxidation process, a chemical
reaction is generated by combining Perox (a chlorine free, hydrogen peroxide based sanitiser) and hybrid
ozone that will remove all of the bacterial threats, better than any other oxidation process.
The Hydroxypure system is completely different from any other sanitation system that is currently available
on the market. If the following basic steps are followed you will enjoy many years of a healthy swimming
environment.
Hydroxypure is a system of components. Attempting to operate the system without correctly
installing all components, or with chemicals other than those recommended in this manual
may result in the system not functioning correctly, failure of the system, may be hazardous,
or may cause adverse effects to your swimming pool or bathers.
Do Not use chlorine (In any form)
Do Not use stabilisers
Do Not use bromine
Do Not use copper based algaecides
Do Not use chemicals other than those recommended in this manual
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Gloves and safety glasses should be worn when handling chemicals.

5.PLANNING
Before commencing the installation, take time to plan;
• The layout of the system, allowing sufficient space and free flowing hydraulics. Waterco recommends
the use of ‘Sweep Elbows’ to ensure optimum hydraulic flow and best results of the Hydroxypure system
• The wall mounted panel should be installed with the base of the Hydroxzone unit at least 400mm (16in)
above the highest point of the filter system, or
• If the Hydroxzone unit is installed in a flooded situation, or if the Hydroxzone unit is installed below
400mm (16in) above the highest point of the filter system, two (2) check valves and a drain must be
installed to the Hydroxzone braided supply tube to prevent backflow of water through the Hydroxzone
unit (see Figure 6-3).
• The Hydroxzone unit is as close as possible to the Dynamic Venturi Injector to reduce ozone loss
through lengthy tubes
• That the chemical drums will be at least 1.5m (5ft) apart
• Ensure unit is protected from the weather and when possible not exposed to elements.

CHEMICAL DOSING UNIT SETTING
The Chemical Dosing unit is pre-calibrated and pre-set with parameters that suit a pool from 40kL to 60kL
(10,600 -15,900 US gal). In most cases, adjustment will be required to the pre-set parameters.
If Hydroxypure is being installed on a smaller or larger pool, or the minimum Perox (hydrogen peroxide) level
or pH levels are either too high or too low, the following steps should be followed.
Readings will vary from region to region depending on conditions. Some adjustment may be required.
Refer to the Chemical Dosing unit operations manual below for further information.
9.1

NOTE: The lower set point is the reading which correlates to the desired Perox (hydrogen
peroxide) level in the pool
The ‘range’ is the distance between the lower and upper set points.
The ‘proportion’ is the number of seconds per 100 seconds that the unit will dose. Always ensure that
the proportional mode is on and the proportional setting at the lower range number is ‘00%’. Adjust the
proportion (%) corresponding to the upper range number.

9.1.1 Increase Perox
To achieve an increase in Perox (hydrogen peroxide) reading in the pool, LOWER the upper
AND lower mV range settings by 5mV, maintaining the same range. This should provide a
Perox (hydrogen peroxide) increase of around 10-15ppm. Then let the pool circulate for
48 hours before testing and comparing readings again.
9.1.2 Reduce Perox
To achieve a reduction in Perox (hydrogen peroxide) reading in the pool, INCREASE the upper
AND lower mV range settings by 5mV, maintaining the same range. This should provide a
Perox (hydrogen peroxide) decrease of around 10-15ppm. Then let the pool circulate for
48 hours before testing and comparing readings again.

Operation
11.MAINTENANCE
In periods of extremely high usage or significant water dilution, more frequent testing and maintenance
may be required. Please ensure that you follow the correct procedure for filling the pool and that pool water
chemical levels are carefully monitored.
Hydroxypure is a system of components. Attempting to operate the system without correctly installing all
components, or with chemicals other than those recommended in this manual may result in the system
not functioning correctly, failure of the system, may be hazardous, or may cause adverse effects to your
swimming pool or bathers.
NOTE: Low levels of either Perox (hydrogen peroxide) and/or Hybrid Ozone will result in a failure of
the system to adequately maintain healthy, crystal clean water.
11.1
REGULAR CARE
Waterco recommends that you have your water tested regularly by your local pool professional who
is trained and accredited in the operation of Hydroxypure. A record of testing should always be kept
for reference.
11.1.1 Water testing and balancing
For the very best results, it is important to ensure the water is balanced as per the
recommended levels. Once the water has been balanced it is recommended that Perox
Balance is used to lock and maintain the pool water chemical levels.
The pH is level is maintained by the control unit (provided the Hydrochloric Acid chemical
drum is not empty) but the use of Perox Balance will help minimise the consumption of
Hydrochloric Acid. The consumption of Perox sanitiser can be minimised provided that the
recommended balances are maintained.
The chemical system comprises of three elements:
i. Perox hydrogen peroxide blends.
ii. Perox “Balance”
iii. Perox “Perfect”
NOTE: Perox sanitisers are blends of hydrogen peroxide. Other forms of hydrogen peroxide
that have not been specifically designed for Hydroxypure and approved by Waterco should
not be used.
NOTE: Perox Perfect can be use at lower dosage in higher frequency as part as the regular
maintenance to prevent phosphates to increase and keep pool water clarity. For further
information consult your local Hydroxypure specialist.

Perox Balance is to be dosed 24 hours after the recommended operating levels are achieved
(Please see 8. WATER PREPARATION). It is also recommended to be dosed if excessive
amounts of Hydrochloric Acid are being used.
NOTE: Always check with your local Hydroxypure specialist prior to dosing additional
amounts of Perox Balance
Perox Balance and Perox Perfect should not be added to the pool at the same time. Allow at
least 7 days between dosing each chemical.
Water testing should be carried out weekly.
Water balancing should be carried out as required with, to ensure water is balanced within
the following parameters, and within these tolerances be balanced to the Langelier Saturation
Index within a range of -0.2 to +0.2.

In periods of extremely high usage or significant water dilution, more frequent testing may be
and maintenance may be required.
11.1.2 High levels hydrogen peroxide
High levels of hydrogen peroxide may cause irritations to the skin and eyes. Always ensure
that the levels are maintained at 100ppm.
11.1.3 Low levels hydrogen peroxide
Low levels of hydrogen peroxide will fail to maintain a safe and pristine pool. Always ensure
that the levels are maintained at 100ppm.
11.1.4 Shock dose
As the Hydroxypure system uses a highly oxygenated environment and as the hybrid
ozone produces a powerful natural oxidiser, the use of regular shock dose type oxidisers
is not required. Maintaining a level of 100ppm Perox (hydrogen peroxide), ensuring the
system is functioning correctly and using the Perox Balance and Perox Perfect products as
recommended will maintain the pool in a safe and pristine state.
Should the pool look cloudy or green, follow the Troubleshooting Guide below and if required
follow the Green/Cloudy Pool Recovery Guide to return the pool to pristine condition.

a list of other suppliers in your area, please contact your local Waterco branch.
11.4
DYNAMIC VENTURI INJECTOR ASSEMBLY
The Dynamic Ozone Injector Assembly has been designed to give optimum control over the injection
of ozone under all flow conditions. Many pumps have variable speed options so it is important that
a flow of ozone is always maintained by adjusting the valve to the correct position and ensuring the
pump is set to the optimal speed for attaining such flow of ozone.
The Injector Piece is set by rotating the valve on the injector towards the “on” position until the gauge
indicator is in the middle of the YELLOW ZONE. This should be done after the primary pool filter
is clean and all leaf baskets in pool skimmer and filtration pump are empty. As the filter begins to
become clogged, or the leaf baskets are full, the indicator on the gauge may fall into the green area.
It is recommended that the filter is cleaned if this occurs. Check that the venturi is operating correctly
by observing bubbles flowing through the inlet of the Multicyclone. If the inlet into the Multicyclone
is clear with no bubbles then the venturi is not drawing in ozone. It is essential that ozone is injecting
into the system. If there is not any ozone flowing into the system the Chemical Dosing unit will not
dose Perox.
Hydroxypure Manual
29
11.5
MULTISPEED PUMPS
Multispeed pumps adjust the volume of water through the pool system. Adjusting the speed of a
Multispeed pump will affect the flow and vacuum through the Dynamic Venturi Injector.
When making any changes to the speed of the Multispeed pump, always adjust the Dynamic Venturi
Valve so that the indicator gauge is in the YELLOW ZONE.
All pools are different. Depending on the hydraulic resistance in the pool system, running a
Multispeed pump on low speed may not create enough vacuum to move the gauge into the yellow
zone. If this is the case, the pump speed will need to be increased until the needle is located in the
YELLOW ZONE.
11.6MULTICYCLONE
The MultiCyclone is patented technology that has several functions within the system. The ozone
is injected via the Dynamic Venturi Injector which creates micro bubbles of hybrid ozone. The
bubbles are then mixed within the MultiCyclone while simultaneously oxidising bacterial and organic
matter. This reaction creates small and large particles which are then forced to the bottom of the
MultiCyclone. The Multicyclone removes up to 80% of the load prior to the main filter. This process is
highly efficient and forms a critical pathway for the advanced oxidation process to occur.
Periodically, the MultiCyclone will need to be cleaned. View the sediment in the clear bowl of the
MultiCyclone and if required, turn the system off to clean the MultiCyclone.
Once the system is off, open the MultiCyclone drain valve to remove the water and sediment in the
base. When drained simply close the drain valve and turn the system back on again. If a backwash
is required, perform that now (please refer to the Multicyclone manual for further information).
11.7BACKWASHING
In order to thoroughly clean the filter media during a backwash cycle it is recommended that the
Dynamic Venturi Injector Valve be placed into the fully OPEN position to allow full water flow through
the pool system. Once the Backwash and Rinse cycle is completed, the valve can be reset so that
the needle locates in the YELLOW ZONE.
The delay function on the controller will disable chemical dosing for 10 mins each time the controller
is powered off and then on. It is for this reason the pump should be stopped and started using the
manual switch on the timer when backwashing your filter. This will ensure the controller is set to a
delay for 10mins to allow the backwash cycle to complete without the chemical dosing unit adding
chemicals. The same will occur through the rinse cycle.
11.8
DRAINING WATER
If water is required to be drained from the pool that will take longer than 10 minutes it is
recommended that the Hydroxzone unit and the Chemical Dosing unit are disconnected from
the timer during this procedure. Once the procedure is completed, plug the Hydroxzone unit and
Chemical Dosing unit back into the timer.
Hydroxypure Manual
30
11.9
TOPPING UP THE POOL
If you are filling the pool with new water, please refer to installation guide (Please refer to 8. WATER
PREPARATION) for instructions.
It is not recommended that Bore or Well Water is used to fill or top up a pool unless it has been tested
and recommended for this purpose.
When topping up your pool with tank water or town water it must be considered that this water may
contain many contaminates or high metal content.
When filling the pool, the hose should be placed into the skimmer box. This is done so that the
system will treat the new water as it is filling. This will help reduce the overall “shock” to the pool that
the new water may present. It is not unusual to see the control unit begin to dose Perox sanitiser
during this process. The system will continually treat the new water as it is added to the pool. High
dosage rates of Perox sanitiser are generally experienced when new water is added. Minimising
splashed water and evaporation can assist with reducing the amount of Perox sanitiser required to
keep your pool looking crystal clear.
11.10 HYDROXONE MAINTENANCE/HOURS
The Hydroxzone unit is rated to last 20,000 hours of continuous operation. Start up and shut
down cycles should be kept to a minimum to extend the life of the lamp. The U/V lamp within the
Hydroxzone unit will provide up to 80% of the maximum output for the system right up until the lamp
stops working.
It is good practice to check the vacuum level on the Dynamic Venturi Piece at regular intervals to
ensure there is sufficient air flow through the Hydroxzone unit.
11.11 CHEMICAL DOSING UNIT MAINTENANCE
The chemical control unit ensures that the correct residual level of Perox is maintained within the
swimming pool while also correcting pH as required. Periodical maintenance of the Chemical Dosing
unit is required.
11.11.1 Dual Probe
The Dual Probe should be removed and cleaned every 3-6 months.
Turn the system OFF. Remove the Dual Probe, being careful not to touch the sensor tip.
Clean the tip with a soft, clean cloth dipped in a small amount of methylated spirits.
11.11.2 Peristaltic Pumps
The squeeze tubes of the peristaltic pumps should be replaced every one (1) year
depending on the amount of chemical being used. The higher the usage, the more often
replacement is required.
Hydroxypure Manual
31
11.11.2 Changing of the tube without dismantling the rotor
Important: Use original pump tube only!
Important: Never grease the tube!
The pump tube is a wearing part and must be changed after reasonable periods of time
corresponding to the pictures below.
Figure 11-1
Figure 11-2
Figure 11-3
Figure 11-4
Caution: Before changing the tube always ensure, that the tubes don’t contain residual
chemical. Acid and Perox may cause dangerous injuries to your eyes and to your skin. Wear
protection glasses and gloves and protect the environment from escaping dosage product
with a cloth if necessary.
Caution: The turning rotor can cause dangerous contusions! Always first ensure that the
pump stays disconnected from the operational voltage during the changing of the tube
(Switch off power to the machine!)
11.12CALIBRATION
The Chemical Dosing unit requires annual calibration. See Chemical Dosing unit section for
full instructions.
Calibration solutions are available from your nearest Waterco dealer.
Hydroxypure Manual

11.13 GREEN OR CLOUDY WATER RECOVERY
Under normal circumstances, if the Hydroxypure system is maintained, the pool should be in pristine
condition. If at initial start up, the pool is green or if the pool does go green for any other reason,
the following procedure should be followed:
NOTE: Do Not Swim While Performing This Procedure
1) Turn Hydroxypure system on in as detailed in the installation section, ensuring the Chemical
Dosing unit is in SERVICE MODE.
2) Adjust pH to 7.2
3) Add a super shock dose of Perox sanitiser to gain a level of between 150ppm and 200ppm
hydrogen peroxide (See recommended dose rate for shock on container) In most cases, the pool
may recover in a few days from this action alone.
4) Add shock dose of Perox Perfect as per dosage rates stated on the bottle.
5) If the pool appears cloudy after shock dosing, a daily dose of 1/10th of the monthly dose may
be used for 3-4 days. This may recover the pool without further treatment. Always clean or
backwash the filter a few days after adding higher doses of Perox Perfect.
6) If further treatment to clear the pool is required, circulate water in pool for 4 hours. Turn system
off after 4 hours and leave for 36 – 72 hours. The pool should have cleared and a white “fluffy”
residual will be present at the bottom of the pool.
7) Vacuum this sediment to waste.
8) When vacuuming to waste, ensure that the Dynamic Venturi Injector Valve is OPEN allowing full
flow of water through the pool system and ensure that the Chemical Dosing unit is in
SERVICE MODE.
9) Once the pool is clear and free from algae, re-set the Dynamic Injector Valve so that the gauge is
in the YELLOW ZONE, and turn the Chemical Dosing unit SERVICE MODE OFF.
10) Follow the procedures in section 8. Chemical Dosing unit settings to set the Chemical Dosing
unit again, ensuring that set point maintains a level of 100ppm hydrogen peroxide in the pool.

12.TROUBLESHOOTING
12.1 Eliminate all standard pool system and circulation possibilities before suspecting the Hydroxypure
system.
12.2 Check water balances to ensure no other potential issues may be contributing. Balance any areas
before checking Hydroxypure system again.
12.3 Check the timer operation. Then check the control unit. This may alert to potential issues within the
system such as a alarms of system faults, or low chemical drum level. You may also check the control
unit displays and calibration. Compare the displays to water tests.
12.4 Check supply of all components. Start with the ozone supply; light operation, supply tube,
connection to Dynamic Venturi Injector – and set up. Ensure the ozone is being injected to the
system. Then check supply of chemicals, ensuring both Perox and acid supply; drums with adequate
supply, supply tubes free and clear, peristaltic pump tubes in good condition and operating.
By following this simple 4 step process, most issues will be resolved with ease. Refer to the table

13.1INTRODUCTION
The Hydroxypure Chemical Dosing unit is a fully integrated controller ideal for a broad range of
swimming pool designs. The system incorporates inputs for a Flow Switch, pH & ORP sensors as
well as an optional GSM/GPRS modem package for remote access and monitoring (optional).
The chemical dosing is performed with high-quality integrated peristaltic pumps, which feature low
maintenance tubing sets and roller assemblies.
The Hydroxypure Chemical Dosing unit ensures that the correct residual level of Perox is maintained
within the swimming pool while also correcting pH as required. The Perox residual level is maintained
by setting the ORP setting as set out in the operating instructions.
Working ranges are:
pH : from 0 to 14 pH
ORP: from 0 to 999 mV
All information is provided through a large LCD display screen. The controller can be easily
programmed using the revolutionary wheel control system. The Hydroxypure Chemical Dosing unit is
housed in an IP65 plastic box.

16.1
INTRODUCTION TO HYDROZXONE
The Hydroxzone Ozone Generator produces ozone when air is drawn across a special high-energy
vacuum ultraviolet lamp (VUV), converting some air to ozone. A venturi injector is inserted on the
return line, by-passing water back into the return line of the pool which creates suction that draws the
ozone into the venturi, mixing the bubbles as the water returns to the pool.
A check valve is employed to prevent water back up in the event of system failure.
CAUTION: Make sure voltage is the same as prescribed on the side of Hydroxzone Ozone
Generator.
Hydroxypure Manual

16.2
ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
Hydroxzone Ozone Generator unit is designed to operate on either 120 or 240 VAC, 50/60 HZ. Wire
Hydroxzone Ozone Generator unit to circulation pump switch or timer. Hydroxzone Ozone Generator
unit and circulation pump should be started simultaneously. Use N.E.C. or local code grounding and
installation procedures for swimming pool equipment.
IMPORTANT: The ozone unit must run when the pump is operational. Damage to unit may
occur if air does not pass through the unit for prolonged periods of time.
Avoid running the ozone unit on short cycles. The useful life of the UV lamp will be reduced if stop/
start operation is performed.
CAUTION: Make sure the voltage is the same as prescribed on the side of the Hydroxzone
ozone generator. Over voltage will void customer warranty.
