Orbit Maintenance

To ensure your Orbit is running at its best and looks great for every customer, you will need to maintain its cleanliness and solution diagnostics regularly, see below for a quick breakdown:

DAILY TASKS:

  • Run a ‘660’ Second float at the start of the day to ensure your system is running as expected, warmed for the customer, and to clear any salt that may have crystallized inside overnight.

  • Test the H202 levels with supplied test strips before your first float for a quick read to ensure disinfectant levels are as expected.

  • Clean the Internal & External surfaces with a hot cloth to remove any deposit of salt. Additionally, we advise cleaning the floor in front of the Orbit at the end of the working day.

 

WEEKLY TASKS:
  • All of the daily tasks outlined above, and the following:

  • ‘Deep Clean’ of Orbits Internal & External surface either dowsed with a hose and hot water or just a microfibre cloth and then buffed with a dry cloth or leather chamois.

  • Test Salt Levels to ensure the buoyancy of the solution is correct at 1.26 SG.

  • Test the Water Level of the solution to ensure it’s at a constant 10 inches.
     

  • We advise completing these tasks on designated days when your center is closed and keeping a log of all the measurements you make for your record.

 

MONTHLY TASKS:

 

  • Clean the Blue Pre-Filter Foam Blocks or replace if required.

  • Replace the Bag Filters with a new set.

POST FLOAT

After every float we advise the following:

  • Running a ‘660’ Second

  • Test the H202 levels

  • Clean the Internal & External Surface

    • Around the internal surface edge of the base

    • Internal & External Buttons located on the lid

    • The external front edge of the entrance

    • External Grab handles on each side

  • Wiping down the surface

  • Using Skimmer Mode
    This mode is useful for processing and removing hairs from the Orbits Base, if the user doesn’t leave any hairs behind there’s no need for a skimmer mode.

Weekly Deep Clean

Every week we advise the following:

  • ‘Deep Clean’ of Orbits Internal & External surface either dowsed with a hose and hot water or just a microfibre cloth and then buffed with a dry cloth or leather chamois. To prevent build up spray the surface of the tank with the Orbit Surface Disinfectant.
     

  • AREAS TO FOCUS ARE:

    • The entirety of Orbits Internal surface; both base and top component

    • The entirety of Orbits External Surface including front, sides back, and lid

    • Grab Handles at the side of the Lid Opening on the top component

    • Front and Back edge of the door opening

    • Additionally, the floor to the float room, especially in front of the Orbit, and space in-between the Orbit and the Shower.
       

  • Test Salt Levels

  • Test the Water Level
