How To Set up a Jandy AquaPure Ei Salt Chlorine Generator

This guide will help you to install a Jandy AquaPure Ei Salt Chlorine Generator. The manufacturer's owner's installation manual has more detailed instructions on where to place the generator and what precautions to take. Make sure you also read and understand your owner's manual before installing this unit. The AquaPure Ei Salt Chlorine Generator has three parts.: the Power Pac, the Cell which generates the chlorine, and the Pod (not shown) which senses water flow.

1. Mount jandy aquapure ei power pack to wall bracket. The power pack must be installed at least 5 ft off the ground and be at least 10 ft from the inside wall of your swimming pool of spa. Also the power pack must be within 15 ft of where the cell will be placed.

2. Make sure that the power pack is within 3 ft of a power receptacle. To avoid electical shock, DO NOT plug in the power pack until the last step after all pieces of the generator have been wired up and are ready to operate.

3. The cell and pod must be installed on a 2 1/2 ft minimum horizonal length of pipe and must be the last pieces of equipment in the plumbing system - just before returning to the pool. The pod must be installed upstream from the cell.

4. Disassemble the cell and pod. Unscrew the locking ring from the cell and the pod in order to extract them from their lower clamps. You will have to press the 2 push buttoms on either side of the upper clamp to separate the upper clamp from the lower clamp.

5. The lower clamps are used as guides to mark where to drill the feeder holes. Invert the lower clamps and place them on the top of the pipe. Mark the pipe for drilling the feeder holes.

6. Drill holes into pipe for cell and pod with the holesaw provided.

7. If you are mounting the cell and pod on 1 1/2" pipe, you will have to add the pipe spacers (included) as shown in the picture. These spacers are not required on 2" pipe.

8. Connect jandy aquapure ei locking clamps. Secure the clamps, pipe spacers and gaskets around the pipe as shown making sure the flow arrows on the clamp point in the direction of the water flow. Ensure that the gaskets are attached to the upper clamps and that the curved side of each gasket is pointing down for an optimum seal. Make sure that the 2 clips on the sides of each clamp are snapped into place.

9. Place o-rings into the channel on each of the clamps.

10. Attach the pod cap and the electrode bell to the clamps. Make sure that the pod is installed upstream from the cell - the cell is the last unit installed on the pipe returning to the pool.

11. When installing the jandy aquapure ei pod, make sure that the flow switch is inserted into the inlet port on the clamp - ports are marked.

12. The pod and cell are secured to their clamps with locking rings. To start the locking rings correctly, ensure that the bump on the locking ring aligns with the top thread on the lower clamp as shown.

13. Tighten the locking rings to the threaded clamps using the locking ring tool (provided). If the locking ring is started correctly, the ring should be level when engaging the threaded housing.

14. Attach color-coded cell leads to electrode terminals and plug the pod connector into the power pack.

15. Place cell cap over electrodes.

16. By code the power pac must be bonded to the rest of the pumping system. Attach one end of the bonding wire (provided) to the bonding lug located on the bottom of the power pack. Attach the second end to the bonding lug on your pump or heater.

17. Plug in and turn on power pack.
