Copper Anode Replacement

  1. Remove the four wires from the flow chamber by gently wiggling the blade connections. They are held on by friction and should come loose with minimal effort.
  2. Unscrew the large grey union connections on either side of the flow chamber. One half of the grey union will stay with the flow chamber, one half of the grey union will stay with the pool piping. Slide the chamber out of the pool plumbing.
  3. Using a Philips head screw driver gently unscrew the two screws holding the copper plates in place. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE TITANIUM PLATES FOR ANY REASON.) Remove the copper plates and the externally attached hardware held in place by the Philips head screws. Note the order the washers and blade connector are stacked on the Philips head screw. Your new set of bars comes with everything you need to reinstall.
  1. Reinstall the new hardware and copper plates. The Philips head screw should first thread through the bowtie shaped blade connection, then through the (copper requires 1 washer per plate, titanium 2 washers per plate) rubber faced cup washers, then through the chamber into the new copper bar. Be sure that the rubber face of both of the cup washers is facing towards the chamber. Do not over tighten the screw into the copper bar. Copper is a soft metal and can be stripped out if not careful. Tighten enough so that it is hard to turn the bowtie shaped connector.
  2. Reinstall the flow chamber into your pool's plumbing and tighten the grey unions. Do not over tighten the plastic unions, hand tight should be sufficient.
  3. Reattach the wires to the new blade connections on the flow chamber, check for firm connection.
  4. Enjoy the water!
