5.11 Optional Equipment
5.11.1 Leaf Trapper
The Waterco Leaf Trapper do not require a media such as sand or D.E powder to operate, instead the filter contains an element which is easily removed to clean or replace.
It is recommended to use an 800 micron bag when is expected high bather loads or heavy leaf environments.
I. Ensure that it is on a flat level surface and is aligned with the pump.
II. Remove the cartridge filter from the carton and install the pressure gauge into the threaded port on the filter lid provided. Using Teflon, wrap once around the brass pressure gauge thread in a clockwise direction and screw into the threaded lid port. A CAUTION.
III. Hand tighten the pressure gauge into the lid only for sealing.
IV. The optional leaf trapper should be located prior to the pump. Please refer to figure 5-36 an 5-37 for the recommended location.

MC = Multicyclone
Schematic diagram showing Injection Points of Perox598 and Acid in a side stream configuration.
VII. Cut and fit the pipe and fittings onto the Leaf Trapper and the pump.
It is advisable to bolt the filter down to the floor where the filter is located. This will prevent the filtration plumbing from working with dyna bolts loose with the expansion and operation of the filter during regular cycles. It will also help to prevent unnecessary stress on the plumbing while unscrewing the filter lid lock ring.
- Removal of hair and lint from the hydraulic lines prior to the filter are an important measure to ensure catalysts for biofilm are prevented from entering the filter.
- An extended service life of the media and reduction in backwashing times/cycles can also be achieved by taking this precaution.
5.11.2 Optional De-Gas Equipment
A. Degas Chamber – media and cartridge filters
The De-Gas Chamber is a compact and efficient device that will remove residual air from the Hydroxypure system.
For Hydroxypure systems that inject high volumes of ozone, multiple De-Gas Chambers can be installed in series to ensure adequate removal of excess air.
If installing in series, install each De-Gas Chamber as close as possible to the previous De-Gas Chamber.
Install the De-Gas Chamber after the MultiCyclone and prior to the filter.
Please refer to figures 5-36 and 5-37 for the recommended location of the De-Gas Chamber. If itâ€™s not possible to install it pre-filter, the alternative location is as last piece of equipment in the pool return line.
The connection of the inlet and outlet to the Chambers must be done in accordance with the stickers noting â€œINLETâ€ and â€œOUTLETâ€. The inlet of water must come through the centre pipe inside the chamber and exit through the opening in the bottom of the tank.
Media and Cartridge filters – FULL system includes;
- Contact chamber
- Auto De-Gas Valve(s
Cartridge system ONLY – includes;
- Auto De-Gas Valve(s)
B. Auto De-Gas Valves
Auto De-Gas Valve(s) are fitted to the top of the De-Gas Chamber substituted for the air release screw of a cartridge filter. They cannot be used alone on a media filter – De-Gas Chamber must be installed.
Hoses supplied direct the small amount of waste water created by the Auto De-Gas Valve back to;
- the balance tank (if applicable)
- to a drain located in a ventilated area or
- into the backwash line – provided the backwash line is not charged with water.
- Connect the hose by pushing into the quick fit hose connection on the valve.
- The outlets from the Auto De-Gas Valves should be arranged to ensure the minimum amount of discharge hose is installed.
- The discharge hose outlet must be lower than the top of the De-Gas Chamber to ensure the flow of any water in the discharge hose does not impede the flow of air discharged from the De-Gas Chamber.
- If you connect the waste from the degas chamber to a charged backwash line the expelled air from the Degas Chamber will not be able to escape and, in turn, stop the degassing system working.
- Tapping saddles are provided to connect to a backwash line.
5.12 Adapting Installations
There may be circumstances where installations need to be adapted to suit local environments such as restrictions in the plant room.
In these cases the following should be observed;
- No changes should ever be made to the configuration of the DVI assembly
- DVI immediately after the pool pump
- MultiCyclone immediately after the DVI – or as close as possible. No further than 1.2m (4 ft) away
- Hydraulic efficiency is ensured in all cases
