Location of Your Power Supply


They say location is one of the most important factors, and in the case of your Power Supply, they are right.

Place the Power Supply in a dry, sheltered area at least 12 feet / 4 meters away from the pool. Since the Power Supply is water resistant, not  water proof, it should be placed in an elevated dry area where it will it will be sheltered from water and rain.

Plug the Power Supply Cord into a standard Ground Fault Circuit Interrupted (GFCI) / Residual Current Device (R.C.D.) protected outlet.

If a protected outlet is not close enough, then a proper outdoor grounded extension cord may be used to connect to the nearest grounded outlet as indicated above. Remember to always keep the Power Supply at least 12 feet / 4 meters away from the pool.


The Power Supply should be placed in a sheltered area, at least 12 feet / 4 meters away from the pool! While the Power Supply is weather-resistant, it is not water-proof and therefore should be placed in an elevated, sheltered area where it will not sit in water or rain!


For optimum cleaning performance, locate the Power Supply at the mid-point of your pool’s longest side. This will allow your cleaner to make the best use of its Floating Cable length without using excess Cable, which could result in it unnecessarily twisting or kinking. Excess Cable should be kept coiled outside the pool near the Power Supply.


The Power Supply may only be connected to a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) / Residual Current Device (R.C.D) to protect your electric outlet and to prevent from possible electrical shock!


Never operate your cleaner when it is not totally submersed in the pool water! Doing so may cause severe damage to motor and require costly repairs!
