SECTION 1. General Information1.1 IntroductionThis manual provides installation and operation instructions for the Laars LX and LT Low NOx A.S.M.E. certified pool and spa heaters. Read these installation and operation instructions completely before proceeding with the installation. Consult the Laars factory, or local factory representative, with any questions regarding this equipment. Certain sections of this manual are specific to either United States or Canadian installations, and are labeled as such. The Laars LX and LT Low NOx heaters get their electrical power from an external 115VAC or 230VAC source and provide a dual electronic thermostat control system for pool/spa combinations or preheat convenience. The Laars LX and LT Low NOx heaters are specifically designed for heating fresh water swimming pools and spas, and with proper installation and care, they will provide years of reliable service. Do not use the heater to maintain pool or spa water temperature below 70F. Do not use it as a heating boiler or general service water heater or to heat salt water. Consult your dealer for the appropriate Jandy products for these applications.

WARNING The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that elevated water temperature can be hazardous. Consult heater operation and installation instructions for water temperature guidelines before setting temperature. AVERTISSEMENT La U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission indique que des tempratures de l'eau leves peuvent tre dangereuses. Voir la notice d'installation et de fonctionnement pour le rglage de la temprature. 1. Spa or hot tub water temperature should never exceed 104F (40C). One hundred degrees Fahrenheit (100F [38C]) is considered safe for a healthy adult. Special caution is recommended for young children. The drinking of alcoholic beverages before or during spa or hot tub use can cause drowsiness which could lead to unconsciousness, and subsequently result in drowning. Pregnant women take note! Soaking in water above 102F (38.5C) can cause fetal damage during the first three months of pregnancy (which could result in the birth of a brain-damaged or deformed child). If pregnant women are going to use a spa or hot tub, they should make sure the water temperature is below 100F (38C) maximum. The water temperature should always be checked with an accurate thermometer before entering a spa or hot tub. Temperature controls may vary by as much as 1F (1C).
