Each inlet valve is connected to the main power unit by a low voltage (24v dc) supply. This allows the main power unit to start from a remote location (i.e. inlet valves). The power unit should be plugged in to the main outlet at all times. To operate your Power Unit, plug the hose into the wall valve in the house OR plug your garage hose (optional) into the utility valve on the front of the Power Unit and use the ON/OFF switch to start the Power Unit. To turn the Power Unit OFF remove the hose from the inlet valve.
If your hose is equipped with a control switch on the handle, then you will be able to operate (turn ON/OFF) the Power Unit at your fingertips!
Allegro is designed with an exclusive Filtration System which provides complete protection of the electric blower motor fan assembly. Your main Power Unit requires minimum maintenance. It is normal for some dirt and lint to cling to the filter. For best results, empty the pail when half full.
MICRO FIBER FILTER
1. Undo the latches and remove the dirt pail from the Power Unit.
2. Wrap a large plastic bag around the lower portion of the Power Unit, so that the filter is contained with in the garbage bag.
3. Hold the filter through the plastic bag and shake, so the dirt will drop into the bag.
4. Remove the plastic bag from the unit. Empty the remaining contents from the dirt pail into the plastic bag.
5. Re-attach the dirt pail to the Power Unit. To re-attach simply hook both latches to the body. The dirt pail should hang freely. Now, use both hands to simutaneously engage both latches. It is not recommended to engage one latch at a time.
