Warranty can be performed by more than 100 factory trained and certified Otterbine Service Centers found worldwide, or by Otterbine directly. A copy of the warranty statement for this product can be found within the owner’s manual. For warranty to be honored, a physical inspection of the unit must be performed by an authorized Otterbine Service Center between years 3 and 4.

Maintenance

Once a year: Disconnect the unit from the power source and physically inspect the aerator and underwater cable for any cuts, cracks or breaks as these may cause oil leaks or electrical shorts. Inspect and clean the pumping chamber components and screen.

After Every 3 Running Seasons: Perform a simple oil change. Otterbine oil must be used for this oil change for environmental and heat dissipation purposes. Otterbine oil can be purchased through Otterbine distribution with part number: 12-0077.

Winterization
 
Units considered under the Aeration Line (Sunburst, Gemini and Saturn) can remain in the water during the winter but need to run a minimum of 12 hours per day, and should run 24 hours per day when temperatures drop below 20o Fahrenheit or -7o Celcius.
 
All units under the Decorative Line should be removed from the water in freezing climates.

Basic Installation Guidelines

  • Unit Assembly:
Unit comes in two pieces, with float detached from motor unit for simplified shipping and storage. Minimal assembly is required and all hardware is provided, two 1/2in or 13mm sockets or wrenches will be needed.

  • PCC Installation:
 Qualified electrician will need to be on-site to install power control center (PCC is standard for all domestic/60Hz applications.)

  • Power Cable: 
Power cable should be buried or trenched in conduit per local codes, and run at least 3ft or 1m out into the pond/basin.

  • Anchor/Mooring Unit in Water:
Float unit into the water and either anchor or moor it in to place with nylon rope. For ponds that experience fluctuating water levels we recommend that you moor the unit into its location. Mooring the unit can often be done from the shoreline, while a boat is typically required when anchoring.
