The robotic cleaner sweeps the pool floor and walls collecting dirt and debris in its filters. This user manual explains how to operate the robotic cleaner, including cleaning, maintenance and storage procedures.
Note: This manual reviews several different models with variations in components.
Once the robotic cleaner is placed in the pool and activated, it operates according to its program. It moves along the floor and walls of the pool, covering the entire area of the pool floor and walls. When it has finished its program, it remains inactive on the pool floor. Power will automatically shut off.
Note: It's not recommended to stop the pool cleaner prior to cycle end.
Note: Wall climbing is an optional feature. When the wall climbing feature is enabled, the robotic cleaner climbs the wall at intervals according to its internal program. Its ability to climb over stairs in swimming pool is subject to stair geometry and material.
The robotic cleaner is intended for use in residential swimming pools only and in the following conditions: (1) Recommended water temperature 22°C-32°C (72°F-90°F). (2) Water pH : 7.2 - 7.6 (3) Chlorine level: pool is maintained according to the pool manufacturer’s instructions. (Recommended Chlorine level: 2-4 ppm)
Note: Failure to maintain the pool according to the recommended operating conditions could prevent the robotic cleaner from functioning properly.

Place the power supply at least 3.6 meters / 11.8 feet from the pool and at least 12 cm above ground. CAUTION: The power supply is not water resistant; it must not be exposed to water or to direct sunlight. Press the plastic snap on the zip ties in order to release the floating cable. Use as much cable as needed in the the water.
Make sure there are no people in the pool. Make sure that the filters are clean. Make sure the pool conditions are met; (see “Operating Conditions” ).
Unroll the floating cable. It is recommended to extend a length of cable that is equal to the pool diagonal size plus an additional two meters. Smooth out coils or twists in the cable. Connect the floating cable to the socket located on the power supply. Roll extra cable, not in the pool, near the power supply. Place the cleaner unit in the pool. Let it sink to the bottom of the pool. Do not start operation before the robotic cleaner is settled on the pool floor.
CAUTION: Operating the cleaner out of water may cause immediate and severe damage resulting in loss of warranty.
Connect the power supply to the wall socket. The on/off button will lit and the robotic cleaner will start its cleaning program. If the power supply is already connected to the wall socket, the on/off button will flash to indicate that the robotic cleaner is in standby mode. Press the On/Off button in order to change the above mode (On to Off – standby, or vice versa).
Note: if the full filter indication light is ON make sure to remove and clean the filter prior to putting the cleaner inside the pool water.
During the cleaning cycle, the cleaner:
(1) moves across the pool floor picking up dirt and debris.
(2) Changes direction and rotates automatically according to the selected program.
(3) Climbs the pool walls every few minutes, as set in its internal program.
Note: The robotic cleaner might occasionally stop moving for a few seconds. This is part of normal operation, not a malfunction.
The robotic cleaner moves automatically to 'standby' after every cleaning cycle and the on/off button starts flashing. To stop the cleaner operation during a cleaning cycle, press the operation button once. On/off button starts flashing and the cleaner is in standby mode.
(1) Unplug the floating cable from the power supply.
(2) Pull the floating cable until the unit is close enough to reach the handle.
(3) Using the handle, lift the cleaner out of the pool.
CAUTION: Do not use the floating cable to lift the cleaner out of the water.
This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference that may be received or that may cause undesired operation. A distance of at least 20 cm. between the equipment and all persons should be maintained during the operation of the equipment.
The two filters must be cleaned after each cleaning cycle. Press the button to release the filter and pull it out of the cleaner. Open the filter case. Spray water on the outer sides of the filter and then spray water towards the inner side of the filter to clean all the dirt and debris. Reinsert the filter back into its location.
Follow these instructions to store the robotic cleaner when not in use: Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet. Disconnect the floating cable from the power supply. Make sure that the power supply is not exposed to water Spread out the floating cable, and roll it. Wash the cleaner unit interior space with fresh water and let it dry. Roll the floating cable and place it on the cleaner unit.
Caution: Do not roll the floating cable on the handle of the cleaner unit. Store the robotic cleaner components in a dry, closed location.
It is recommended to periodically clean debris and hair from the propeller of the water outlet: Remove the filters. Remove the screws that hold the water outlet cover. Remove the water outlet cover. Clean any hairs, dirt, or debris. Return the cover and fasten it with the screw. Reinsert the filters.

There is no electricity in the wall socket: (1) Disconnect cleaner from the power and control unit. (2) Disconnect power supply from the wall socket, wait 30 seconds and reconnect. (3) Turn power on. If not activated, connect the unit to a different wall socket.
Obstacle in the drive system of the cleaner unit: (1) Turn the cleaner unit carefully to view the underside. (2) Check that the scrubbing brush is not bent/broken. (3)Clean and remove obstacles and debris if necessary. Propeller is seized due to accumulation of hair: Check if the propeller is broken or needs to be cleaned (see “Checking Water Outlet Propeller”).
