4. Start up
When starting up the system it is compulsory to
ensure that the shaft driven pump produces pressure
by the pressure gauge and through the alarm setting
of the pressure switch.

When rotating direction is different from specified,
please change the attachement between suction and

Note: When priming up the RHP-pump do not loose the suction hose/pipe, only open one of the suction connection
plugs or valve plugs which is above the suction hose/pipe connection. Dont change the hose/pipe attachment.
Do not open the pressure line.
