Carefully read the operating instructions before assembling and starting. The appliance must not be used by persons who are not thoroughly acquainted with the instructions handbook (operating instructions). Children and persons under the age of 16 cannot use the pump and must be kept well away from the appliance when it is connected. The user is liable towards third parties in the area where the appliance is in operation.
While the pump is operating persons must not be in the liquid to be pumped. The pump may be connected only by means of a safety switch for fault currents, with a rated opening current up to 30 mA and a socket with an earth contact installed in conformity with the regulations. Protection: at least 10 Amps. Operation in swimming pools and garden ponds is admitted. For other operation, the provisions in conformity with the standard VDE 0100 part 702 must be respected.
CAUTION: Before checking, connect the pump and the system with no voltage! Replacing the line connecting up with the mains requires using special tools and therefore may be done only by the manufacturer or its service engineers.
The pump may operate only with a pipe connecting the appliance (extension) that is no lighter than a rubber hose mod. H07 RNF in conformity with the DIN 57282 or DIN 57245 standard.
⚠ (For your safety) The voltage (230 Volts alternating current) indicated on the pump’s rating plate must correspond to the available mains voltage. Before starting it is necessary to make sure by having a check made by qualified personnel that there are the necessary electrical protection measures.
- Earth connection.
- Earthed neutral.
- The safety switch for fault currents corresponds to the safety regulations of the electricity board and functions perfectly.
- Plug connections must be protected from water. If there is a risk of flooding, plug connections must be placed somewhere safe.
- Definitely avoid pumping aggressive liquids and abrasive products.
In the event of the pump failing, repair work may only be carried out by the repair workshops of the technical service. Only genuine spare parts must be used.
It is notified that in conformity with the law on product liability we cannot be held responsible for the damage caused by our appliance: a) because of improper repairs not carried out by the personnel of the assistance points authorized by us; b) or if GENUINE SPARE PARTS are not used to replace

The maximum temperature of the delivery liquid should never exceed +3°5°C in continuous operation. Inflammable, combustible or explosive liquids cannot be conveyed with this pump! In particular, do not use engine fuels, detergents, or other chemical products.
CAUTION! Sector of use
“DRAINAGE” To transfer and empty fresh to slightly polluted water from rainwater barrels and casks.
“VORTEX” Portable submersible pump for discharge and waste water with solids in suspension. Also used as emergency pump, in case of overflowing with muddy water, thanks to its large suction filter.
To achieve excellent motor cooling the pump casing is provided with a breather hole that enables water to flow out. The pump must be protected from running dry.
⚠ First put the pump into water and then connect the plug. The pump is ready for use.
Note: pollution of liquid could occur due to leakage of lubricant
3. Before starting
Installation of your canned motor pump is: ·
- fixed with a fixed pipe, or
- fixed with a flexible hose.
When installing it is necessary to take care that the pump is never fitted hanging from its delivery pipe, but is always placed in a raised position with respect to the bottom of the well so that the muddy bottom is not sucked up with the water. Never handle or hang the pump by gripping the power supply cable. In pumps with a floating switch, the latter is adjusted in order to make immediate starting possible.
The pump well must have minimum dimensions of 40x40x50 cm. so that the floating switch can move freely. It is also possible to use round, prefabricated concrete wells with an inner diameter of approx. 40 cm.
4. Maintenance instructions
Your canned motor pump is a quality product, free from maintenance. It has been subjected to rigorous final checks. However, for a long service life and continuous operation, we recommend constant care and regular checks.
- Before every maintenance job, disconnect the plug.
- For transportable use the pump should be washed with clear water after every use.
- For fixed installation it is recommended to check the operation of the floating switch every 3 months.
- Using a jet of water, get rid of the fibre and spindly particles that may get deposited in the pump’s casing.
- In the event of excessive deposits in the pump casing, dismantle the inlet filter by unscrewing the star screw. Wash the pump casing and fit the inlet filter back on. ·
- Every 3 months remove the mud from the bottom and walls of the well. ·
- Eliminate the deposits from the floating switch, washing it with fresh water.
- Protect the pump from frost.
