The Genesis Device Installation
Never attempt to make electrical connections yourself. Always have a licensed electrician provide this service.
For a more detailed explanation of the installation of The Genesis Device please consult your owner’s manual or download a copy: click here.
- Determine input voltage: 120 or 240 VAC. Set switch located on back of circuit board to proper input position.
*Note all units are shipped with a factory preset of 240 VAC.
- Securely mount the controller to a vertical surface. Make sure there is sufficient cable to accommodate wire connections between the Genesis controller, the Electrode cell and the AC power source.
- The Genesis controller must be wired to the load side of the pump or pump timer. This is extremely IMPORTANT: The Genesis Device is designed to operate and produce bromine only while the pump is circulating water. Failure to observe usage directions may result in equipment damage.
- Use liquid tight flexible conduit between the AC power source and the Genesis controller.
Electrode Cell Installation
NOTE: THE T-FITTING PARTS MUST BE GLUED PRIOR TO INSTALLATION TO AVOID LEAKAGE. TEFLON TAPE SHOULD BE WRAPPED ON THE THREADS OF THE ELECTRODE CAP FOR THE SAME PREVENTATIVE MEASURE.
The Electrode cell must be positioned ¾’ below horizontal. This will allow the Bromine gas to fully escape the Electrode chamber. If the Bromine gas can not escape the chamber this will result in damage to the Electrode.
If the Electrode cell is positioned above horizontal or horizontal to the ground it can prevent the Bromine gas from fully escaping the chamber. This can cause build up a gas inside the chamber that can damage the life of the Electrode.
*The Electrode cell produces concentrated Bromine. To avoid damage the Electrode cell should always be installed after the heater*
