Safety & Electrical Connections

1. danger symbol Always disconnect the electricity supply before handling, maintaining, repairing or installing any pond equipment.

2. Always make sure you know the correct amps and voltage required before installing.

3. Use dedicated power outlet only. Sharing the outlet with other equipment may cause overheating and fire.

4. EasyPro TLS pumps come in 115 volt only.

5. Always connect to a Ground Fault Circuit (GFCI) to prevent electrical shock. Never submerge connecting power cable plug in water.

6. danger symbol Never let the pump run without water as this will damage the impeller, over heat and possibly burn out the pump. This pump must stay submerged entirely when operating. If used in a skimmer, the debris net must be kept clean to ensure adequate water flow to pump. Running pump low on water will cause overheating, premature failure and will void warranty.

7. Do not use this product in bathrooms or swimming pools.

8. Do not let the water level in your water feature fall below the top of the pump body.

9. All electrical work must be performed by a qualified technician. Always follow the National Electrical Code (NEC) or the Canadian Electrical Code as well as all local, state and provincial codes. Code questions should be directed to your local electrical inspector. Failure to follow electrical codes and OSHA safety standards may result in personal injury or equipment damage. Failure to follow manufactur- er’s installation instructions may result in electrical shock, fire hazard, personal injury or death, damaged equipment, provide unsatisfactory performance and may void manufacturer’s warranty.

10. Do not attempt to disassemble pump during the warranty period. If there are any questions please contact your local EasyPro dealer.

11. Never use an extension cord or tamper with power cord. Power cord cannot become bent, twisted, abraded or cut. A damged cable may cause electric leakage, shock or fire.

12. The motor has a built-in protection system which stops the pump when overheating occurs due to excessive load or low water, this can be caused by clogging at inlet/outlet or when flucuations occur in power supply. The cooling time is roughly 15 to 20 minutes, then the pump will automatically come back on. If the overload is tripped, it is essential to identify and remedy the cause of the overheating.


  • Do not paint casing, over heating may occur
  • Lift only by handle, not by power cable or float switch
  • Do not hang pump in water, install on solid flat base in upright or horizontal position
  • Install proper outlet adapter for pipe or hose
  • Make sure that power cable plug and power outlet are away from water and water discharge pipe/hose.


1. danger symbol Do not start operation with people standing near intake or outlet.

2. Do not operate out of water.

3. Pump must remain fully submersed.

4. Only use pump for circulation, transfer or removal of water with limited solids 1/4" or smaller.

5. Do not pump oil, salt water, sewage, food or chemical liquids.

6. Do not allow dry operation

7. Do not allow foreign objects to clog or enter intake

8. In case of power outage, turn off power switch to avoid damage when power is restarted.

9. If excessive vibration occurs turn off power immediately.

Service & Maintenance

1. danger symbolDisconnect all power supplies before inspection or service to avoid possible electrical shock.

2. The pump should be removed from the pond on a regular basis, cleaned and checked over for damage to prolong the life of the pump.

3. Clean the impeller and intake screen when the flow is visibly reduced.

4. Clean the pump and impeller with clean fresh water.

5. Check inside the impeller housing for large debris or algae, which could reduce the flow.

6. Check and tighten nuts and bolts if required, refer to dealer for advice on other repairs.

7. Winterization/Storage: When the pump is out of use for extended time - wash and dry it then store indoors in a non-freezing location. It is best to store in a bucket with about an 8" water depth. It is essential to prevent any risk of the pump freezing.

8. If the pump is left in water but not operating regularly, test run it at least once a week.
