CAN THE PUMP BE USED TO DRAIN THE BAPTISTRY IF WE DON"T HAVE A FLOOR DRAIN?
There are a few considerations but yes the Baptistry can be power drained by the system pump if it has been plumbed with a 3 way valve in the return line on the pressure side.
The 3 way valve allows the user to close the return line from the pump and divert to a 3rd outlet to waste.
The pump will empty the baptistry at about 50 GPM so it should be faster than a gravity drain.
this will also require a person be on watch to turn off the pump once the water is at the level that allows air into it.
If this does occur there is a possibility of the pump motor failing if the pump runs dry.
There will also be water left in the tub just above the suction fitting.
You can use a submersible pump which can be placed in the baptistry to be power drained and then removed once it has been emptied.
This will leave only a few inches at most in the tub.
Looking at your AS-5-EQAS Fully automatic unit.
Here is what we are after:
1) Ability to automatically turn on pump & heater two days per week.
2) Ability to turn on pump only every day for a couple of hours to circulate & filter water.
Do you have a system to accomplish these tasks?
The AS-5 with 7-Day timer will allow you to operate the system each day in 2 hour segments.
The timed operation can be changed each day to run at different parts of the day.
Unfortunately the heater will come on each time the pump comes on unless the temperature is turned down.
Possibly setting the temperature to ambient (ie 70 degrees) will allow you to filter daily and not worry about the heater, turning it up to temperature prior to using it.
