Installation

Positioning the pump

The dosing pump is a self-priming pump. When there is big difference between the inlet and the outlet height, siphoning may occur. In order to avoid siphoning, the dosing pump should be placed in a position to ensure that the height difference between the inlet and the outlet is within 0.5m.

The inlet tube should be as short as possible, and the outlet tube should not be submerged.

A length of clear tube is provided with the unit. Coloured hoses (Part code DDCT01) are available as an optional extra.

Please carefully check that the inlet and outlet tube connections are correct on the pump head and that the hoses are pushed fully onto the hose connection pipe collets before installation.

The pump should be secured into place or installed in a stable location not above open water or very humid environments. A specially designed mounting bracket is available as an optional extra for secure fixing (Part code DDP1BKPRO).

Connect the dosing pump to the Cloud

Make sure your mobile device is connected to your home network, the location services on the mobile device are enabled and that the Kamoer Remote app permissions are set correctly from your mobile device settings page.

Please note the device does not support 5G Wi-Fi and cannot use a 5G Wi-Fi hotspot.

Connect the power supply to the DC 12v input socket on the rear of the dosing pump and plug in to a mains power source.

After the dosing pump is turned on for the first time, the blue status indicator will flash slowly. At this point you need to use the Kamoer Remote app to connect the dosing pump through a wireless router to the cloud.

Open the app, click the ‘+’ button in the upper right corner of the device to add the device. Under the D-D H2Ocean heading select the P1 PRO in the list of supported devices.

 

 

Confirm that your mobile device is connected to your 2.4G Wi-Fi network. Enter you 2.4G Wi-Fi network password and then when prompted tap next.

 

Connection option 1 – Can be used when connecting to a split 2.4g and 5g Wi-Fi network.

Press and hold the “Reset” button on the dosing pump for 4 seconds then release. Wait for the blue status indicator to flash rapidly to show the device has entered configuration mode. Then tap the next button in the app and select “The blue light is flashing fast and continuously” followed by next.

The pump will now start the connection process.

After the connection is completed, the App will confirm the “Successful Connection” and the status light on the dosing pump will show solid blue.

From this stage you can now access and control the pump.

 

Connection Option 2 – Can be used when connecting to a mixed 2.4g and 5g Wi-Fi network.

Press and hold the “Reset” button on the dosing pump for 6-8 seconds then release. Wait for the blue status indicator to flash intermittently to show the device has entered AP mode. Then tap the next button in the app and select “The blue light is flashing slowly and intermittently” followed by next.

Go to the Wi-Fi network settings in your mobile device and select the network for the dosing pump you are trying to connect. Once connected return to the app and tap the blue bar on the bottom of the screen to confirm the connection has been made.

The pump will now start the connection process.

After the connection is completed, the App will confirm the “Successful Connection” and the status light on the dosing pump will show solid blue.

From this stage you can now access and control the pump.

 

Programming the dosing pump

To Program the dosing pump, open the Kamoer Remote app and select the device you want to program from the available devices list.

With the device selected the main plan page will be displayed.

 

Setting the dosing plan

Tap on ‘Cycle time’ and choose if you want to set up the schedule dosing frequency ‘By Days’ or ‘Weekly’

‘By Days’ will set the pump to dose every ‘X’ days, e.g. every 3 days. This can be set from every 1 day to a maximum of every 99 days.


‘Weekly’ will allow you to choose the days of the week that you want to dose, e.g. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

When you have chosen the frequency tap ‘Save’ in the top right corner.

 

 

To set the dosing volume tap on the ‘+’ button in the top right corner. Then set the name of the dosing plan and the time period to dose. It is factory set from 00:00 to 23:59 so that the dosing volume will be added throughout the full day, it can set to dose for a limited period e.g. between 10:00 and 18:00. Once the times have been set tap ‘Save’ in the top right corner.

Select the ‘Quick Add’ tab. Enter the total amount that you would like to dose during the period selected in the previous step and how many times to split that dose. For example, if the ‘Total add’ is set to 10ml and the ‘Add times’ to 24 the pump would automatically split a 10ml dose in to 24 smaller doses throughout the set period.

The number of times the dose can be split will be determined by the overall time period set for the plan and the total volume to be dosed.

By tapping on the Eye logo next to the save button a detailed plan preview will be shown based on the ‘Add times’ and ‘Total add’ figures. This will show when the pump will run and how much it will add on each dose.

From here set the Anti-chemical interference can also be set. If you are using multiple P1 PRO dosing pumps this can be used to prevent them dosing at the same time. The time set in here will delay the automatically calculated program for that pump.

For example, if the two P1 PRO pumps are set to dose 10ml, between 12:00 and 23:00, over 8 doses with the chemical interference set to ‘0’, both will enter the first dose at 12:00 at the same time. They will then continue to dose at the same time throughout the day until they complete their program. If the chemical interference is set to ‘0’ on the first pump and ‘3’ on the second, the first pump will run as described above but the second pump will start its first dose at 12:03 and then continue with an automatically programmed 3 minutes delay on every dose.

When finished tap ‘Save’ in the top right corner to store the plan.

Finally set the amount of dosing solution available by tapping the dosing container volume. This gives a real time estimate of how much and how many dosing days of solution are available. When the dosing solution is low the icon will change to yellow.

The plan page will now show the completed settings.
