Before you start
The Housing must be installed in the RETURN pipework to the pool. It must always be installed after the filter, gas heater, solar heating or heat pump.
A Venturi Pipe is incorporated within the Cell Housing designed to eliminate any possible gas build up, although it is always recommended to ensure proper installation to eliminate this from happening.
Connect the Cell Housing horizontally (A or B) in the return line to the pool (use Reducing Bushes supplied if using 40mm PVC pipe) using high pressure PVC glue. The Cell Housing can be mounted vertically (C) but provision must be made for a gas trap.
Check that the O-ring is clean, greased with silicone grease (DO NOT use petroleum based jelly) and securely located in the Cell Housing.
Fit the OXI Cell and ensure the Locking Ring is firmly tightened by hand. DO NOT USE A TOOL TO TIGHTEN
NOTE: The pump rating should not exceed 8amps. All 15amp pumps must be plugged into a 15amp wall socket.
- We DO NOT recommend the use of valves on the inlet or outlet of the Housing. If you do use a valve then it is important to ensure that the valve cannot deadhead (lock closed) while the pump is running. It is the installers responsibility to ensure some form of flow control is installed in this instance and it disables the pump.
- ALWAYS ensure that pipe work and equipment do not allow gases generated to collect and build up in any part of the installation.
- DO NOT apply priming fluid to the Cell Housing, it is not needed and may react
with the plastic.
