  • Keep the piping as straight and short as possible, and of suitable size.
  • Avoid connecting an elbow directly into the pump inlet. A length of straight pipe will allow proper entry of the water to the pump.
  • Slope horizontally, and run upward to the pump to prevent trapping air.
  • Use independent piping supports for suction and discharge pipes to reduce strain on the pump.
  • Keep as much of the suction line as possible below the water level to reduce priming time.
  • Install valves and unions in the pump suction and return lines to facilitate servicing. Valves are also essential for pump maintenance if the system is installed below deck level.
    notice: Use PTFE tape for making threaded connections to the pump. Do not use pipe dope.

Thread sealant tape instructions: 

  • Use only new or clean PVC pipe fittings.
  • Wrap male pipe threads with one to two layers of PTFE tape. Cover the entire threaded portion of pipe.
  • Do not overtighten or tighten past thread stop in pump port!
  • If leaks occur, remove pipe, clean off old tape, rewrap with one to two additional layers of tape and remake the connection.
FITTINGS

Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use the fewest number of possible fittings. Avoid fittings that could cause an air trap. Pool fittings must conform to International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards. Use only non-entrapping suction fitting or double suction.

POOL PUMP SUCTION REQUIREMENTS

WARNING Pump suction is hazardous and can trap, drown, or disembowel bathers. Do not use or operate swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs if a suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose. Follow the guidelines below for a pump installation that minimizes risk to all users of pools, spas, and hot tubs.

ENTRAPMENT PROTECTION
The pump suction must be designed to eliminate the possibility of suction entrapment or hair entrapment/entanglement.

SUCTION OUTLET COVERS

  • All suction outlet covers must be maintained. They must be replaced if cracked, broken, or missing.
  • See Testing and Certification for outlet cover certification requirements.
  • All suction outlets must have been correctly installed, with screw-fastened covers in place.

TESTING AND CERTIFICATION

All suction inlet covers must comply with ASME/ANSI specifications for suction fittings for use in swimming pools, spas, hot tubs, and whirlpool bathtub applications. The product must be tested for compliance with the standards, and the certification must be included with the components.
Suction inlets must be designed so that water is drawn simultaneously. A vacuum relief device can be installed in line leading to the pump suction.
All suction outlet covers must conform to ASME/ANSI A112.19.18M; or must be a minimum 18 x 23 grate or larger; or must have an approved channel drain system. Skimmers are exempted. All pool and spa single or multiple outlet circulation systems shall be equipped with an atmospheric vacuum relief system. The system must be ASME/ANSI A112.19.17 rated.
Any pool or spa shall immediately be closed if the cover or grate is damaged or missing.
Suction outlet covers/grates shall be tested and listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory as conforming to ASME/ANSI A112.19.8.

ELECTRICAL
Ground the motor before connecting to the electrical power supply. Failure to ground the motor may cause a severe or fatal electrical shock hazard. Never ground to a gas supply line. To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to the motor before working on electrical connections. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) tripping indicates an electrical problem. If GFCI trips and will not reset, have a qualified electrician inspect and repair the electrical system. Verify that supply voltage matches the nameplate voltage. Incorrect voltage can cause fire or seriously damage motor and voids warranty.

VOLTAGE
The voltage at the motor must be within 10% of the motor nameplate rated voltage or motor may overheat, causing overload tripping and reduced component life. If voltage does not fall within the specified range during operation consult the power company.

GROUNDING/BONDING
Install, ground, bond and wire motor according to local or National Electrical Code requirements. Permanently ground the motor. Use the ground terminal provided in the terminal box on the back of the motor. Use size and type wire required by local codes. Connect a motor ground terminal to electrical service ground. Bond motor to pool structure. Use a solid copper conductor, size No.8 AWG or larger. Run wire from external bonding lug to reinforcing rod or mesh.

TO WIRE A VARIABLE SPEED MOTOR 

  • Remove the terminal box lid. (FIG.1)
  • Use multifunction crimping pliers to press O-type grounding terminal which connects 14 AWG. (FIG.2)
  • Install 1/2” connector to terminal box. Install ground wire to ground rod using multifunction crimping pliers to connect two wires with two-wire caps. (FIG.3)
  • Install conduit to the connector. (FIG.4)
  • Reinstall the terminal box lid.EVERBILT PCP10001-VSP 1 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump User Guide  & troubleshooting 8
  • Connect a No. 8 AWG solid copper bonding wire to the pressure wire connector provided on the motor housing and to all metal parts of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub and to all electrical equipment, metal piping or conduit within 5 feet of the inside walls of swimming pool, spa, or hot tub.
  • Follow all national and local wiring codes. If unsure of the code requirements, consult a professional electrician.
  • Pump must be permanently connected to the circuit. Table I gives the correct wire and circuit breaker sizes for the pump alone. If other lights or appliances are also on the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads to pump amp load. If unsure, consult a licensed electrician.
  • A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is required in the circuit. For size of GFCI required and test procedures for GFCI, please see the manufacturer’s instructions.

  • Do not mount the pump on a wooden platform! Securely mount on a concrete platform for quietest performance before working on pump or motor.EVERBILT PCP10001-VSP 1 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump User Guide  & troubleshooting 9

OPERATION

Avoid running the pump dry. Fill the pump with water before starting the motor. Before removing trap cover: 

  • STOP PUMP before proceeding.
  • CLOSE GATE VALVES in suction and discharge pipes.
  • RELEASE ALL PRESSURE from the pump and piping system.
  • If the pump is being pressure tested, be sure pressure has been released before removing trap cover.

WARNING:

  • Do not block pump suction. To do so with body may cause severe or fatal injury. Small children using pool must ALWAYS have close adult supervision.
  • Fire and burn hazards. Motor runs at high temperatures. To reduce the risk of fire, do not allow debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. Allow the motor to cool prior to handling or performing maintenance. The motor is equipped with an internal thermal protection circuit to guard against overheating. The maximum ambient temperature for motor operation must not exceed rating on the motor model plate.

PRIMING PUMP

  • Release all pressure from the filter, pump, and piping system; see the filter owner’s manual. In a flooded suction system (water source higher than pump), pump will prime automatically during suction and discharge valves are opened.
  • If the pump is located above the normal pool water level, remove ring and trap assembly, and fill trap and pump with water. Clean and inspect O-ring; then reinstall on trap cover. Replace trap cover assembly on trap, then rotate clockwise to tighten the cover.EVERBILT PCP10001-VSP 1 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump User Guide  & troubleshooting 10

NOTICE: Tighten ring and cover assembly by hand – do not use tools. Pump priming time will depend on the vertical distance and length of the suction line. The pump is designed to prime at 10 ft. or less. If the pump does not prime, make sure that all valves are open, and that the suction pipe is submerged. Verify there are no leaks in the suction lines.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

The only routine maintenance needed is the inspection and cleaning of the trap basket. Debris or trash that collects in the basket will choke off water flow through the pump.

Before attempting to clean the basket:

  • Stop pump, close valves in suction and discharge, and release pressure from system

WARNING: Hazardous suction can trap hair or body parts, causing severe injury or death. Do not block suction.

  • Remove the ring and cover assembly by turning counterclockwise. If necessary, tap handles gently with a rubber mallet.
  • Remove the basket and clean. Inspect holes in the basket for blockage. Clean the basket with water and replace in trap. Verify that the basket is oriented correctly in pump housing.
  • Clean and inspect lid O-ring; then reinstall the ring and cover assembly.
  • Prime the pump (see priming instructions).EVERBILT PCP10001-VSP 1 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump User Guide  & troubleshooting 11

DRAINING THE PUMP 

  • Pump down water level below all inlets to the pool.
  • Remove the trap cover.
  • Drain the basket housing and pump housing through the drain plugs.
  • Clean the pump and basket, then replace cover assembly.
  • Be sure motor is kept dry and covered
    .NOTICE: Tighten trap cover by hand only.

STORAGE/WINTERIZING: 

WARNING: Explosion hazard. Purging the system with compressed air can cause components to explode, with risk of severe injury or death to anyone nearby. Use only a low pressure (below 5 PSI), high volume blower for purging the pump, filter, or piping.

For outdoor/unprotected installations: 

  • Enclose the entire system in a weatherproof enclosure.
  • To avoid condensation/corrosion damage, allow ventilation; do not wrap system in plastic.
  • Use a 40% propylene glycol/60% water solution to protect pump to -50° F (-46° C).
    NOTICE: Allowing the pump to freeze will damage the pump and void the warranty!
    NOTICE: Use only non-toxic antifreeze. Do not use automotive antifreeze. It is highly toxic and may damage plastic components in the system.
