How to Operate a Jandy Pool System

Save

Jandy produces a variety of pool-control systems that can regulate a pool's filter pump and heater as well as auxiliary features such as lighting and waterfalls. The basic Jandy Pool Control is operated by means of a switch plate and a power center.

Power Center

  • Set the regular cycle for the pump by turning the large dial clockwise on the time clock.

  • Turn the small dial on the time clock counterclockwise to override the regular cycle. If the pump is currently on in the regular cycle, this action will turn it off and vice versa.

  • Set the filter pump switch to "Auto" to allow automatic control of the pump by the time clock.

  • Turn the filter pump switch to "Off" to turn the pump off. This action will override the regular cycle if the pump is on. When the pump is turned off, the water in the pool will not circulate through the filtration system.

  • Turn the filter pump switch to "Manual" to turn the pump on. This will override the regular cycle if the pump is off. When the pump is turned on, the water in the pool will circulate through the filtration system, cleaning it of particles and impurities.

  • Set the thermostat to the desired temperature for the pool.

Switch Plate

  • Turn the filter pump switch to "On" to override the regular cycle and start the filter pump. This has the same effect as setting the filter pump switch to "Manual" at the control center.

  • Turn the heater switch to "On" to activate the heater. This will heat the water in the pool until it reaches the temperature set on the thermostat.

  • Turn the auxiliary switches to "On" to activate any auxiliary equipment. This could be any optional equipment that has been connected to the system and can be controlled by an "On/Off" function, such as lights or a waterfall. There are two auxiliary switches. Each can control one auxiliary device.

Tips & Warnings

  • The filter pump switch at the power center must be switched to "Auto" to use the switch plate.
  • Do not attempt to access the electronic components of the system.
