Safety Procedures & Warnings

Important Safety Precautions. To ensure safety, please read the following safety procedures carefully before operating your robotic pool cleaner.

A Ground Fault Current Interrupter (GFCI) outlet must be installed to protect your electric outlet and prevent any possible electric shock.

  • The connection to the branch circuit should be consistent with local and national wiring electrical codes.
  • To prevent possible electric shock hazard this unit must be connected to an RCD (Residual Current Device) with a related residual operating current not exceeding 30mA.

Do not turn the Power Supply on, unless the pool cleaner is in the water.

Operating the cleaner out of water will immediately cause severe damage and will result in loss of warranty.

The Power Supply must be placed at least 12 feet / 4 meters from the pool’s edge at all times! See diagram below.

The Power Supply should not be subject to standing water, puddles or rain.

If the cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer’s authorized service agent or a qualified and trained person in order to avoid hazards.

To avoid a possible electrical shock, do not use this product if the floating cable appears to be damaged.

Allow the cleaner to remain in the pool for 20 minutes following the end of its cleaning cycle. This will allow the motors to cool adequately. Following this period remove the cleaner from the pool – Do not leave the cleaner in the pool.

Always remember to turn the power supply “OFF” and unplug it from the power outlet before removing the cleaner from the pool.

Do not operate your machine while people swimming in the pool.

For use in residential swimming pools only

Before performing any troubleshooting maintenance procedures, your Cleaner should be disconnected from the Power Supply (transformer) and the Power Supply should be unplugged from the electrical outlet to prevent the possibility of personal injury or damage to your Cleaner!

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

TEMPERATURE:

Please be sure to always keep temperatures in mind when storing or using your pool cleaner:
Temperature Ranges Fahrenheit Celisius
Proper Storage 50°F – 104°F10°C – 40°C
Minimum/Maximum Usage 55°F – 95°F13°C – 35°C
Optimal Usage 72°F – 90°F 22°C – 32°C

USE OF THE CLEANER IN A VINYL LINER POOL:

Some vinyl liner patterns are specifically susceptible to rapid surface wear and pattern removal caused by objects coming into direct contact with the vinyl surface, including pool brushes, pool toys, floats, fountains, chlorine dispensers, and automatic pool cleaners. Vinyl liner patterns can be seriously scratched or abraded simply by rubbing the surface with a pool brush. Additionally, ink from the pattern can also rub off during the installation process or when it comes into contact with objects in the pool. The manufacturer is not responsible for, and the Limited Warranty does not cover, pattern removal, abrasion, cuts or markings on vinyl liners.
