1. General

The Pulse series pool pump is designed to operate todays swimming pools, its high performance and high head flow characteristics will ensure that the Pulse pool pump will operate with all your ancillary equipment including chlorinators, heaters, in floor cleaners and pool cleaners. It is important to correctly size your pump to suit your pool and installed equipment.


2. Installation of the Pulse Pool Pump  

Edgetec Systems Pty Ltd has applied the latest CAD and CFD software in designing your Pulse Pool Pump to ensure that you have many years of trouble free operation. Here are some simple installation rules that should be followed when installing the Pulse pool pump;

1. Care should be taken to position the pump so that it has adequate drainage. Ensure the motor cannot become immersed or flooded and the pump location should be well ventilated.  The pump should be protected from direct sunlight and weather.

2. Ensure that the pump is secured onto a stable base. The pump mounting foot has mounting points where the pump can to be bolted to the base to prevent movement.

3. The pump foot has an anti-vibration pad moulded into the base to minimise noise and vibration. Failure to secure the pump to the base securely may cause damage and void the warranty.

4. The pump must be accessible for maintenance and be easily removed for service. Ensure that you allow enough area around the hair and lint pot basket for removal and cleaning.

5. The pump suction line requires a minimum of 50mm PVC pipe and should be kept as short as possible with the minimum number of elbows and bends and no air trap for optimum performance. The suction line must be installed below the water level until just in front of the pump location and the vertical riser used to reach the pump inlet. Note: Wear protective gloves when using PVC glue and solvents and always allow 24 hours to dry before starting the pool pump.

6. The suction and return pipe work should be self-supported so that no strain from the pipework loads up the pump barrel unions. The pump should not be suspended by the pipe work or other equipment as this will cause leaks and eventual damage to the pump. Only use the barrel unions supplied with the pump, barrel unions only require to be hand tight, do not use tools to tighten the barrel union nuts.

7. If the pump is installed below the water level - isolation valves must be fitted to the suction and return lines.

8. Pump installations that are 500mm or more above the water level will require a foot valve at the pool or a check valve in the suction line. 

9. Water temperature must not exceed 45°.


3. Electrical Connection

1. IMPORTANT! - The electrical installation must be performed by a licensed electrician and must conform to all national, state and local codes. Australian Wiring Rules AS3000

2. The PULSE pump must be supplied through a residual current device (RCD) with a rated residual operating current of 30mA.


FOR YOUR SAFTEY: This Product must be installed and serviced by a qualified service technician. Improper Electrical installation can create dangerous electrical hazards which could cause death, serious injury or property damage. Improper installation will void the warranty.

If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by Edgetec Systems or its service agent or a suitably qualified person.

Never run your spa pump without water as this can cause serious damage to the mechanical seal which may cause the spa pump to leak. Running the pump without water will void your warranty


4. Operation-Priming

The Pulse series pool pump has been designed to prime and re prime as long as the Strainer Basket is full of water and there is adequate supply from the suction points.

Priming/Start up

1. If the pump is installed above the water level and the Strainer Basket has no water in the bowl, close off the valve in the suction line (if fitted), remove the Strainer Basket lid, and fill the bowl with water to the lowest level of inlet pipe. Replace the Strainer Basket lid ensuring that its fitted correctly- see Strainer Basket - Maintenance below.

2. If the pump is installed below the water level, open the valves and you should see the water flow freely into the hair lint pot bowl.

3. Switch the pool pump on.

4. The pump should now be primed and running; however, on some installations the priming time may alter depending on the elevation and the length of pipe on the suction line.

5. If after around 90 seconds the pump has not primed switch the pump off and repeat step 1. If after a number of attempts the pump does not prime - check your connections for any leaks, it may be necessary to fit a foot or check valve to obtain prime.


Do not block the pump suction, as this can cause severe injury and/or death. Do not use this pump for wading pools, shallow pools, or spas containing bottom drains, unless the pump is connected to at least two (2) functioning suction outlets. Drain covers must be certified to the latest published version of AS 1926.3


5. Strainer Basket - Maintenance

Your Pulse series pool pump has been designed to run for extended periods of time, however, the Strainer Basket should be inspected and cleaned on a weekly basis or more regularly if required, to do this follow the steps below;

1. Turn the power off to the pump and close the isolation valves.

2.  Undo the Strainer Basket lid by turning the Strainer locking ring in an anticlockwise direction (approximately 1/8 of a turn) and remove the locking ring and Strainer Basket.

3. Clean the debris from the basket and clean with water if required.

4. Refite the Strainer Basket into the pump aligning the open section of the basket with the inlet of the pump. If the basket is not fitted correctly the Strainer lid will not seal airtight and pump may not prime.

5.  Fill the Strainer Basket with water to the lowest level of inlet pipe (if required). and 

6. Replace the Strainer Basket locking ring and tighten in a clockwise direction approximately 1/8 of a turn.

Hand tighten the lid only, do not use any tools to tighten the lid.

7. Open the isolation valves and switch the pump on.


6. General Maintenance

1. On a monthly basis check the area around the pump motor to ensure that it is clear of debris, i.e. leaves, sand and dirt etc.  Failure to keep this area clean may cause the pump fan cowl to become blocked and cause the pump to overheat.

2. Check the Strainer Basket regularly, blocked Strainer Basket or suction line will limit the water to the pool pump and may cause serious damage and void your warranty.

3. On a monthly basis check the O rings on your Strainer Basket lid and pump barrel union O rings for leaks. Should any leak be detected, clean and regrease the O Rings or replace if required. Use a Silicone Based grease - Do not use petroleum based grease or Vaseline.

4. Check under your pump every 3 months to ensure that it is not leaking; if a leak is found call a pool service technician for repair.

5. Maintain your water and chemical balance.

6. Do not add salt, chlorine, acid or any chemicals directly into your skimmer box, this may cause damage to your pump and possibly void your warranty.

7. If there is large amounts of sand or grit in your pool always use a filter sock in your hair and lint pot basket, otherwise the sand and grit passing through your pump could cause serious damage.

8. In cold climates where the pool pump maybe subject or exposed to frost or freezing, we recommend that the pump not be used during this time and that the water be drained completely. There is a drain point located on the hair and lint pot and a ¼ BSP drain plug can be sourced from Edgetec Systems. Fitting this plug requires drilling out the wall and tapping 1/4 BSP thread.

9. Should your pool pump require servicing and you cannot locate a service person, please contact Edgetec Systems for their nominated service outlet.

10. Use only genuine Edgetec parts when replacing or maintaining your pool pump.
