"Enhance Your Pond's Beauty with the Amphibious IQ Energy Saving Pond Pump - Perfect for Fountains, Waterfalls, and Extra Large Ponds!"
LOW RUNNING COSTS - digital motor technology uses around 30% less energy than similarly priced pumps, the flexible power usage control and display with touch button stop, start, increase or decrease power and flow helps to cut costs and save money
RUNS FILTERS AND WATERFALLS - suitable for waterfalls and filters, the Amphibious IQ Pump combines low maintenance with high performance
MOTOR PROTECTION SYSTEM - if the pump detects the motor is clogged or jammed the motor protection system will pause and display, "motor jammed, clean impeller, clean rotor". When the clogging has been removed the pump can safely restart
RUN DRY PROTECTION SYSTEM - the run dry protection system detects insufficient water; the pump will pause, and a warning will be displayed, the pump will automatically restart when the water level is safe again
SOFT START TO REDUCE WEAR - on initial start up the controller will gradually increase the power supplied to the pump to it's pre-set power position, in turn gradually increasing the flow rate. This reduces pump wear and reduces stress on pipework and filters fitted to the system, decreasing the risk of leaks or damage

Under normal running conditions the display on the controller will show you the current power consumption of the pump. This can be altered through use of the increase/decrease power buttons.
However, there are pre-set programmes on the controller designed to increase the levels of protection for the pump, preventing overheating and damage to the impeller. These functions are identified by the scrolling text displayed on the controller.
See below controller warning messages and actions required.
Jammed, Clean Impeller, Clean Rotor
An object has caused an obstruction of the impeller – stopping it from being able to spin.
Turn off the pump at the socket, open the cage, clean the impeller and impeller chamber and remove any obstructions.
If the pump has remained blocked for a period of time the display will read “jammed clean pump clean rotor reset power”. After cleaning turn the power off at the mains supply for a minimum of 5 seconds to enable the pump to run again.
Low Water, Add Water
The water level in the pond has dropped.
Add dechlorinated water to raise the water level back to the original depth.
If the pump has been without water for a period of time, the display will read “low water add water reset power”. After adding water or solving any leaking issues, turn the pump off at the mains for 5 seconds to enable the pump to run again.
Check Pump Cable and Connector
Either the plug from the pump to the controller has not been connected correctly, or there may be damage to the pump cable.
Ensure the plug is fully inserted into the socket on the controller. Check cable for any damage, if damage is found, cease using the pump.
After ensuring the connector is correctly inserted, turn the power off at the mains supply for a minimum of 5 seconds to enable the pump to run again.
