a) Normally the Smart Press is mounted directly on the delivery point of a surface pump: the device is connected with a 1" male connector, however it can be mounted at any point on the delivery piping (even on a submerged pump) in a vertical or horizontal position. Avoid applying check valves downstream from the appliance, whereas application upstream is recommended.
b) The Smart Press delivery should be connected to the water supply (1¼" female). It is recommended to use a flexible hose to prevent damage from tightening and/or vibration.
c) The standard model of Smart Press works correctly if the highest point of use is not higher than 15 meters. Change this value using the setting screw (dowel) on the front of the Smart Press. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the ignition value. Turn counterclockwise to reduce the ignition value.
d) Make sure that the pump primes perfectly by filling the body of the pump and suction hose with water. If the pump is going to be used with supply from a low level (well), always install a foot valve.
e) Perform electric connection observing the screen-printing on the electronic card located in front of the clamps.

THE PUMP JAMS: (red LED on) reset the priming and eliminate the cause of the failure to prime (suction leak, malfunctioning foot valve, tank without water, etc.). Then press the manual reset button, being careful not to run the pump without water to prevent damaging the seal and hydraulic part.
THE PUMP GOES ON AND OFF CONTINUOUSLY: find the leak in the delivery system and eliminate it.
THE EQUIPMENT IS COMPLETELY OFF (NO LlGHTS ON) AND WILL NOT START AGAIN: Check the power supply. If the board has been removed for replacement or for easier wiring, check if the flow sensor located in the rear part of the board is properly located in its housing in the main body, while carefully avoiding crushing the feet, which would cause the board to stop completely.
