Q360 Frequently Asked Questions
The cleaning jets themselves do not need to be manually sequenced, as they will not stay in sequence for long. They simply should be plumbed so that they cycle from the shallow area to the deeper area of the pool.
The cleaning jets have an offset hole that thrusts the nozzle forward while it transitions from the up to down position, turning the cleaning jet slightly. Each time the nozzle comes on it has moved to a new position and will clean a new area of the pool.
Turn off the pump. If the cleaning jet retracts it is a valve problem – if the cleaning jet remains in the up position it is a stuck cleaning jet.
There is probably a blockage in the cleaning jet. Simply remove the cleaning jet and clear the blockage.
The O-ring acts as a cushion or spring to make the bayonet lock work.
Before installing a cleaning jet nozzle into a body that has been without a cleaning jet nozzzle for a period of time, allow the system to blow through the line to eliminate any debris that may have fallen into the line. If heavier debris (such as rocks) has lodged in the body and won’t clear, place the install tool over the hole to create turbulence in the body cup. This will eliminate any debris in the body cup.
Two points of suction are safer than one. Many municipalities are now requiring two drains for each pump even when it is also tied to a skimmer.
The Q360™ System does not require the use of surface returns. The force of the cleaning jets mixes and turns over the surface water eliminating the need to direct water to the surface.
Each time the water valve switches, the next port opens before the one that has finished shuts off. The Q360™ water valve always operates so that the system is pressure safe.
A special molded plug is available to fit the body that will hold up to 50psi.
The addition of a booster pump to the system allows the cleaning nozzles to continue to work at peak efficiency because they are not subject to an increasingly dirty filter. The system then allows the pool water to be turned more quickly, thereby not needing to run as long.
Placing the water valve next to the pool greatly reduces the quantity of pipe necessary to plumb the system. It also allows easier servicing of the system with the pause knob readily available to the pool area.
The water valve housing does not need a module in place to have water go through it. Remove the module and replace the seal lid and clamp, and water will be sent to all return points in the pool, so you will have circulation.
Failure to rinse the inside of the filter with the drain plug removed will cause debris to reenter the pool when the cartridge is lifted out.
It is easy to winterize the system with parts that are available from Blue Square Manufacturing. See Winterization Instructions.
Even though most heaters come with an internal bypass, an external bypass is required to ensure that both the heater and the in-floor system function properly. The high flow rate of the in-floor system does not allow efficient transfer of heat in the heater, so a bypass is necessary to slow down the water going over the heat exchanger. The bypass also reduces the restriction on the system.
