- Do not use fill-sleeve to lift or position.
- Pool Bladders are not intended for long-term usage. Some minor leaking may occur during normal usage.
- Not to be used for potable water.
- To be used on a flat surface not to exceed a variation of 3″ in grade
- Find a flat surface away from and down grade from buildings.
- Sweep area and remove any rough or sharp objects.
- If unit is equipped with two fill-sleeves, clamp unused closed.
- Position unit so it lays flat with no wrinkles underneath to ensure full filling capability.
- Tether discharge hose to fill-sleeve. Discharge hose can be attached with zip-ties
or hose clamps. Make sure the connection is secured tightly to reduce leakage. (fig 1 & 2)
- The Pool Bladder is full when the top-to-bottom seam is 10″ from the ground.
- Purge air from bladder by completely removing air purge cap. This will allow greater water volume and aid in draining. Replace cap when water begins to flow. (fig 3)
- Insert suction hose, with strainer attached, into fill-sleeve. Let the hose penetrate deep into unit as to allow
suction to occur close to the middle. This will allow the pump to discharge as much water as
possible. (fig 4 & 5)
- As the water level drops the Pool Bladder will collapse in on the strainer allowing the strainer to maintain suction. (fig 6 – 9)
- When the pump starts to strain under the load caused by the collapsing Pool Bladder, turn the pump to idle begin forcing water towards the strainer. (fig 8 & 9)
- When no more water can be removed by the pump, remove suction line.
- To remove remaining water, fold the corner of the bladder under so fill sleeve is at the edge of the fold. (fig 10)
- Work remaining water towards fill sleeve (fig 11). Most of the water will pour out of the fill sleeve, but some will collect in the folded-under corner. Lift this corner to drain remaining water (fig 12)
