THE AQUA PHASE WASH SEQUENCE

These steps demonstrate the simplicity of daily operation of Aqua Phase from start-up to shut-down.  You will notice that there are only FIVE steps for actually washing an item in Aqua Phase.

 

Aqua Phase Start-up Procedures:
1. Inspect water supply hose connections - check to make certain fill and drain hoses are properly connected to Aqua Phase.
2. Reservoir Screen - check to make certain reservoir screen is clean and in place (reservoir screen is located in the bottom of the water reservoir located inside the wash chamber).
3. Water Reservoir - check to make certain that the water reservoir is free of debris.
4. Rear Filter Screen (if present, newer models do not have a rear filter screen) - check rear filter screen and clean if necessary. 
5. Chemical Solutions - check chemical supply levels.
6. Power Supply - plug in Aqua Phase and press the reset button located on the GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) in the Aqua Phase power cord.
7. Water Supply - turn on water supply.
Aqua Phase Operating Procedures:
1. Load the item to be washed into wash chamber and close the front door.
For Aqua Phase units equipped with the Wheelchair Wheel Rotation System:
For washing wheelchairs - position the front, small diameter wheels into the wheel carriage loading rack, tip the wheelchair forward, and slide it into the wash chamber until the rear, large diameter wheels rest between the rotation system drive bars.
For washing items other than wheelchairs - it is recommended that you use the Equipment Rack for easy loading, positioning, and unloading.
2. Select the "Wash Time" (3, 5, or 7 minutes) on the control panel if your Aqua Phase is equipped with variable wash times.  Choose the length of wash time based on the condition of the item to be washed. 
3. Set the "Run/Drain" switch on the control panel to "Run". 
4. Select the wash mode ("Clean & Disinfect", "Clean Only," or "Disinfect Only") on the control panel if your Aqua Phase is equipped with the Disinfectant Application System
5. Push the "START" button on the control panel.
Aqua Phase Automatic Operation:
After pressing the "START" button, the computer will check to see if there is water in the water reservoir. If the reservoir is not full of water, Aqua Phase will automatically fill to the appropriate level.  The reservoir holds approximately 5-1/2 gallons.
When the reservoir is full, the pump will start and begin the wash cycle spraying the item being washed.
Detergent is automatically injected shortly after the wash cycle begins.
The machine will now be in the wash phase and will continue depending on the wash time you have selected - 3, 5, or 7 minutes.
When the wash phase is complete, the dirty wash water will be pumped out of the machine to the drain.
Aqua Phase will automatically refill to the appropriate level with fresh water.
After the reservoir is filled with water, the pump will start and the machine will begin its final rinse phase.
The rinse agent is automatically injected shortly after the rinse phase begins.  The rinse cycle will last for approximately 30 seconds.
The disinfectant application cycle will begin if selected and if installed on your machine.  
When all the lights are off, the wash sequence is complete.
During normal automatic operation, the rinse water remains in the machine and will be the wash water for the next item placed in the chamber. If you choose, you may drain the rinse water prior to beginning the next wash cycle. To drain the machine manually:
Set the "RUN/DRAIN" switch to "DRAIN".
Push the "START" button. The machine will drain the water.
Prior to beginning the next wash cycle, set the "RUN/DRAIN" switch to "RUN".
When the next wash cycle begins, the machine will automatically fill with fresh water for the wash phase.
Recommended shut-down procedures:
1. Drain Aqua Phase.
- Set the "RUN/DRAIN" switch to "DRAIN".    Press "START" button.
2. Water Supply - turn off water supply.
3. Power Supply - unplug Aqua Phase.
4. Reservoir Screen - clean reservoir screen (reservoir screen is located in the bottom of the water reservoir located inside the wash chamber).
5. Water Reservoir - check to make certain that the water reservoir is free of debris.
6. Rear Filter Screen (if present, newer models do not have a rear filter screen) - check rear filter screen and clean if necessary. 
7. Chemical Solutions - check chemical supply levels.
