Generator Usage

To use a power generator as a power source for your pump, you must follow the power on/off process.

Power On:

First, turn on the generator and allow it to warm up for at least 1 minute to allow the power to stabilize. Then, you may turn on the pump.

Power Off:

Reverse the above process. First turn off the pump, then turn off the generator.

We recommend that you install a 2-pole switch in between the generator and the control box for switching On / Off the pump.
