The Pooled Energy System is automatic and can operate at any time. If it does happen to start when you are cleaning the skimmer box and have the basket out, injury is possible and you may have leaves sucked into the plumbing and down to the strainer and filter. We recommend that you shut the system down when you do this. It can be done in 2 ways:-
- Switch the system OFF using the Pool App, or,
- For those systems with lighted push-buttons:- To shut the whole system down to STAND-BY, press and hold the GREEN button on the Intelligent Pool Controller for about a second and the GREEN light goes out. This means the entire system is in STAND-BY and not operating any program.
Please don’t forget to switch it ON again when you are finished.
Please check the skimmer box regularly to see when it needs cleaning. If it gets really full to the extent that it is affecting water flow through the system, you may get an email or SMS request from the Pooled Energy Network Operating Center requesting that you clean the skimmer Box and Strainer.
if water flow is severely restricted, the system may shut down automatically.
OUR ADVICE IS TO ALWAYS SHUT THE SYSTEM DOWN PRIOR TO DOING ANY CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE AND ANY LIABILITY IS YOURS IF YOU DO NOT.
