Safety & Assembly Instructions

USE WITH 1 to 2 HP RESIDENTIAL SAND OR CARTRIDGE POOL FILTERS.

Cartridge Filter Installation May Require Additional Parts

INTRODUCTION: This manual contains information for the proper installation and operation of Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain / Saver.                 

This product is designed to operate with above-ground and in-ground swimming pools equipped with 1.0 or 2HP (horsepower) sand or cartridge filter systems. This manual MUST be followed precisely.

DESCRIPTION: The Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain/Saver (sometimes referred to as the Eco in this manual) is the only Drain that comes down like Rain. The Eco is designed to ONLY be used with properly balanced pool water.  The Eco is ONLY to be used with sand or cartridge filter systems. The Eco re-purposes swimming pool waste water by gracefully spraying it several feet into the air.  Your actual height may vary based on many factors such as; the size of your pool pump and pressure. The returning spray naturally falls back to the ground covering approximately 30 to more than 100 sq. ft.  It’s environmentally friendly and reduces the soil erosion commonly associated with the forceful blast of a wastewater hose.     

The Eco is constructed with heavy-duty thick durable HDPE plastic and yet it is light enough to carry around on your fingertips.  

The Eco is designed to operate with ONLY hoses rated at 20 PSI (pounds per square inch or higher).  Kits #400 & #420 include our heavy duty hose which is designed to operate with the Eco.       

Hoses that don’t meet these specifications may burst, cause damage and/or result with injury or death and are not suitable for with this waste water fountain.

PROPER USES:

  • Disposing of properly balanced swimming pool waste water.
  • When: After routine maintenance, after heavy rainfalls, before adding fresh water.
  • Where: Never dispose of pool water into a storm water sewer, always onto your own yard.
  • How: With the Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain.  

PLUMBING & INSTALLATION:

     WARNING – Pump and Filter System Operate Under High Pressure. Failure to follow this instruction manual may result in injury or death.

  1. Unwind your waste water hose.
  2. Slide each hose clamp onto the hose and stop once you are 3” to 4” from each end.
  3. Hand stretch or use liquid dish detergent to lubricate the openings on each end of the hose for ease of connection.
  4. Attach/slide the waste water hose to the waste line water outlet on your pool filter/pump & then slide the clamp onto the connection and securely tighten.
  5. Attach/slide the other end of the waste water hose onto your Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain & then slide the clamp onto the neck of the fountain and securely tighten.
  6. Place your Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain on the ground with the top side facing up.

HOSE REQUIREMENTS: The Eco operates under pressure.  DO NOT operate above 20 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch).  Kits #400 & #420 include our heavy duty hose designed to operate safely with the Eco.  Item #200 does not include a hose.  Inferior hoses may burst and result in property damage, injury or death.  Only use a waste water hose that exceeds these specifications.  Some vacuum hoses may be suitable for the Eco.  Confirm with the manufacturer beforehand.

OPERATION/USE & WARNING:  Do not operate above 20 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch).  Move unit to a different location with each use.  DO NOT over saturate any areas.  Excessive amounts of water may damage or kill your lawn, flowers, shrubs, plantings, garden and/or trees.  Attention should be given to how your vegetation is responding to each use.  Immediately stop use of the Eco if negative impacts are observed to your property.

Stand clear of hose & fountain when in use.  Position top side facing sky.  Do not operate above 20 PSI (pounds per square inch).  Use ONLY with properly balanced pool water!  Change location with each use.  Do not over saturate any area.  Poorly balanced pool water may severely damage your lawn & vegetation.  Do not allow anyone, pets or animals near the area while the Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain is in use.  Potential trip hazard.  Put away when not in use.  Do not use where water may come in contact with an electrical source. This product is a waste water irrigation device.  Incorrect installation and/or improper use may result in product failure, property damage, injury and/or death.  This product is intended for above-ground & in-ground residential swimming pool applications only.  Do NOT connect to a high-pressure systems such as a municipal water main.  Confirm that ALL clamps have been securely tightened and that the Eco & hose are in good condition before each use.  Replace the Eco, hose and clamps annually or at the first sign of wear, fatigue or if not operating as properly.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE:   An increase in the fountain’s water height is an indicator of blocked water escape openings.  Debris may collect inside the Eco and block these water outlets.  The water outlets must be routinely cleared to keep the Eco operating safely.  Failure to do so may result in product failure, property damage, injury or death.  Disconnect the device prior to starting maintenance.  The openings may be cleared with a tooth pick or similar object and then flushed / rinsed clear with a garden hose.  Do not conduct maintenance without safety glasses or while the Eco is in operation.  REGULATORY COMPLIANCE:  The Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain is designed to comply with most State & Federal pool waste water disposal regulations.
