Find a suitable location to mount the control box. Ideally as with all pool equipment it should be
installed out of direct weather and no closer than 3 meters from the waters edge. Lift up the two
mounting tabs and use two appropriate screws to mount the control box to the wall, keeping in mind
that the power cable is 1.8m long and should be plugged directly into a general power outlet, not into
an extension lead.
Pressure Switch or Flow Switch for Retro-Fit (Boosted) Systems - Optional
If the V2 Controller is to be fitted to a Retro-Fit (Boosted) System the mains power cable is to be
plugged into its own power point. A Pressure Switch should be fitted between the main Filter Pump
and Filter or a Flow Switch straight after the filter. All must be in a vertical position and plugged into the
left hand plug socket beneath the controller. This will ensure that the booster pump only activates if the
main pool pump is operating. When a Pressure or Flow Switch is to be used the controller must have
this function turned on. To do this ensure the power is turned off, remove the lid and move the black
jumper link marked J1 to connect pins 5 + 6. Refit lid and switch power back on, a 33 will briefly be
displayed during start up. To switch off the pressure switch mode simply reverse the process.
For stand alone systems with separate suction and return the pool sensor must be fitted into the
suction line of the solar boost pump, preferably in a position out of direct sunlight. For retro-fit systems
the pool sensor must be fitted in the suction line of the main filter pump or between the outlet of the
filter and before the take off Tee fitting for the solar boost pump. It is recommended that a 14.5mm
hole be drilled in the PVC pipe, this can be carried out using a Dontek PD01 grinding drill or a small
pilot hole can be drilled and a 14.0mm drill-bit used spinning in a counter clockwise direction to
minimize the chance of shattering pipe. Insert the grommet into the pipe and gently push in the black
sensor barb. The green sensor plug is to be fitted to the centre plug socket.
Roof sensors must be fitted into a small piece of solar collector or equivalent and attached to the roof.
The best location is within arms length of the gutters edge of the house or shed as long as the sensor
end is not shaded and is on a roof of similar aspect of the main collector. It must not be fitted on top
of the solar collector or fitted to high points on the roof like Ridge Capping as false readings will be
Keep in mind that it is of the utmost importance to keep the roof sensor as short as possible as this
will assist in the longevity of the sensor and controller in the event of electrical storm activity and
power surges. Sensor cables must not be run parallel to power cables and run lengths should
be less than 50m. Cable ties should be used to fasten the sensor cable to the cold water inlet pipe
making sure that the ties are approximately 10mm from PVC fittings. Cable ties should be tightened
only firm, over tightening can cause breaks in the outer PVC if not careful. If the cable is to be run
under ground a conduit must be used to protect the wire and there is to be no cable joins within,
conduit ends must be sealed to prevent water ingress. Any excess cable should be removed and
re-fitted ensuring that the wire ends are tinned with solder. The sensor plug is to be fitted to the
right hand socket.

Summer Mode is normal operating mode used during the Pool Swimming Season. You may
set the desired pool limit by pressing the UP or Down Buttons. The display shows the pool
temperature then flashes the limit setting and light, the pump light and pump will be on when
solar gain is available.
Manual Mode is used to prime, clean or test the pump. To select manual mode press the
SELECT button until the PUMP/MAN light is illuminated. The pump will then start, or stop if it
has been running. To return to normal run simply press the SELECT button till the AUTO light
is illuminated. The V2 will automatically return to AUTO run after 30 minutes, with a limit of 30
Winter Mode should be selected when the pool is not being used for extended periods. The
pump will be turned on for 3 minutes every day at the same time Winter Mode was selected.
This will assist in the systems off-season maintenance and save energy. To enter this mode
press the SELECT button till the WINTER light is illuminated. When a flow switch is used
ensure the winter mode is activated during the filter run times only. If the power is interrupted
during winter mode the V2T will continue to count time accurately.
Tropical Mode is used to assist in cooling over heated pools. If the limit has been reached,
which is indicated by the limit light on, and the roof temperature drops below the limit
temperature (usually some time late at night) the pump will turn on and pump pool water
to the roof to cool it down. The pump will turn off when the pool water is cooled to the limit
setting. To set this function press the SELECT button till the TROP light is illuminated. To
switch back to Summer Mode press the SELECT button till the AUTO light is illuminated.
Retro-Fit (Boosted) Systems - Optional
When solar gain is achievable the V2 Controller detects constant water flow from the main
filtration system, the Pump light will flash for thirty seconds and then the solar boost pump
will start. When filter back washing is to be carried out the power to the V2 controller must be
turned off. If Winter Mode is to be selected, ensure that it is set during normal filter times and
the main filter pump is running.
The V2 will turn the pump on when the roof temperature is higher than the pool (pipe)
temperature by 8°C. If a pressure switch is fitted the V2 will flash the pump light for 30
seconds when constant flow from the main filter pump is first detected, then start the booster
pump. When the pool temperature reaches the limit setting the limit light will flash, it will
remain in this state while the roof is hot to prevent over heating the pool. The V2 will then wait
for night time to pass and the roof to reach 40°C the next day to start the process again, this
is to prevent the solar starting too early in the morning. If the roof does not achieve 40°C the
following morning the system will break out of it’s hold mode 12 hours from when the pool first
reached limit. These functions are to minimise the pool from over heating, hence reducing
water evaporation and consumption of chemicals. An auto flush program is incorporated
to ensure accurate pool temperature readings are obtained as the pool sensor is normally
located well away from the actual swimming pool and may sit in direct sunlight or in warm
enclosures, the last recorded pool temperature will be displayed for 6 hours from when the
pump was last running. When auto flush is in wait mode the limit light will be on constant
until the pump is turned on for a three minute test, the pump light will flash until this test is
over. The auto flush functions do not occur when the pressure switch option is turned on as
accurate water temperature is being read. The roof temperature is displayed when first turning
the power on for 3 seconds.
