The Uno, Duo, Trio Filter Kit comes out of the box "Ready to Install." Attach the Fountain Kit to the top of the Layer Locking Assembly. Place the filter kit fully submersed underwater. Turn on the Pump and see your fountain or pond getting cleared of debris. You may need to adjust the flow on the Diverter Valve to adjust the flow on the fountain spray.
The advanced features of the Uno, Duo, Trio Filter System allow efficient operation and if installed according to instructions, will keep the water in your pond or water garden crystal clear.
The Uno, Duo, Trio Filter System is a compact filter for ponds and water gardens, easy to install and designed for easy maintenance. Besides offering 2 different fountain spray patterns, it performs three different filtering functions:
- Multi Layer Mechanical Filtration to remove solids.
- Biological Filtration to promote beneficial bacteria growth.
- Quiet One Pump for optimal performance and compact setup: Quiet One 2200 for Uno, Quiet One 3000 for DUO And Quiet One 4000 for Trio.
- (Optional) Ultraviolet Sterilization puts out 13 Watts of intense UV light to kill free floating-algae. The ultraviolet sterilizer has a separate plug so that you can operate it only when needed.
Remove the Layer Locking Assembly that is holding down the Housing Cover Top. Take off the layer by gently sliding the Locking Notches. Inspect the Pump. It should be locked in place. The Biological Media bag should be opposite to the pump suction. Note: The Pump slides both forward to unlock and backward to lock. If pump is not slid all the way back to the Pump Base Wall, it will not lock into the UV Chamber.
Step 2: Once all the parts are inspected for correct positioning, make sure that the pump cable is running through the locks and is locked in place with the Rubber Cord Grommet.
Step 3: Correctly place the layer back on the base by sliding the Locking Notches into the Notch Holders. Similarly place the Housing Cover Top and lock it in with the Locking Assembly. Now you are ready to put the 1" Leveling Fitting for Fountain Kit, Diverter Valve and the Fountain Kit Complete in the same order.
It is recommended that you service the pump every three months to enhance its efficiency and the life of the moving parts. Before you start to service the pump, take note if you have upgraded your UNO, DUO or TRIO Filter kit with an Optional UV. You will first need to remove the UV bulb and Sleeve from the unit (see UV Installation below). By not doing this first, you risk cracking the Quartz Sleeve and UV Bulb.
To service the pump, follow Step 1 to remove the Top Cover, Filter Layers and the Biological Media Bag. Now remove the UV Housing Cover by removing the screws that hold it in place.
Step 4: Gently slide the UV Housing Cover by first sliding it out from the pump and then from the base UV seal. The pump is locked onto the base with horizontal notches. Note: Pulling the pump vertically will result in damaging the filter base and the pump. With the pump out, now you can remove the grey volute by twisting it counterclockwise. This will expose the impeller and shaft of the pump. Inspect all parts for any debris. Use a brush to remove any debris. Note the position of the pump when it is locked onto the base. The pump is properly locked once it slides over the Locking Notch. Note: If the pump is not installed properly, the UV Housing Cover will not align properly. Once this process is complete, you will have to lock the pump back into the same position. With the pump fully exposed, push it out horizontally along the notches.
Recommendation: It is recommended to use Lifegard Silicone Lubricant (DFS# 907904) on all rubber O-rings and the impeller and shaft of the pump. After servicing the pump, replace the pump back onto the base by following Step 4 in reverse. Make sure to slide the pump back onto the base until it is locked and you hear a locking click. If the pump is not locked all the way, the UV chamber will not fit properly. Reinstall the Pump to UV Chamber Adapter.
Step 5: Run the pump cord along the cord holders on the base and reinstall the Rubber Cord Grommet.
Step 6: Start to reinstall the UV Housing Chamber by first installing the open end of the Housing that goes over the O-ring for the Internal UV Housing. Slide it gently and press the end that connects to the pump by sliding it onto the O-ring of the Pump to UV Chamber Adapter.
Step 7: Adjust the UV Chamber housing and align the holes for the locking screws. You may need to adjust the Pump to UV Chamber Adapter so the screws align properly while the O-ring for the Internal UV Housing and the O-ring of the Pump to UV Chamber Adapter make a proper seal. Once the pump and the UV Chamber Housing are aligned correctly, the screw holes will fall in place. Install the screws.
Step 8: Replace the Biological Media Bag. The Biological Media bag should be by the UV Chamber Opening opposite the Pump Replacement Base. Follow Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3 to install the layers and Fountain Assembly.
UV is an OPTIONAL add-on feature for UNO, DUO and TRIO Filter Kits. Adding UV helps control algae and disease in your system. Install the UV Bulb into the Ballast Connecter. Install the O-ring onto the Quartz Sleeve. The tapered end of the O-Ring slides onto the Quartz Sleeve first. Slide the Quartz Sleeve with the O-Ring onto the UV Bulb. The Quartz Sleeve should slide into the groove of the Clear View Cover. Slide the complete assembly into the filter base. Align the Guide Notch on the Filter Base with the Clear View Cover and push it all the way in. Lock the assembly in place with the UV Light Cover Nut. Make sure the Ballast is not exposed to moisture and the wiring is laid out safely. Connect the Ballast cable to power. You should see the Blue Glow of the UV Light. Note: In the event of any water contact with the electrical components, the circuit breaker will trip.
