Installing the Clarisea SK5000 into the sump

Installing the SK5000 V2.1, V2.2 and V3

***You can use either 1 or 2 SK5000 roller mats in these sumps. The flow rate into the sump will determine whether you need 1 or 2 roller mats. While each SK5000 is rated for 1200 GPH MAX, or 2 for 2400 GPH MAX, Flow rates thru this sump may be lower based on our testing. If using only 1 Roller mat, you need to keep the plug in the second bulkhead on the empty side with no clarisea SK5000. For the best operation we recommend keeping the flow below the SK5000's Maximum flow rate.

  1. Double check that the “Crash Box Weir Baffle” if not already, is installed into the sump. See figure A.2 Here:

  2. Remove the SK Access Panel’s 6 Thumbscrews and Panel. See Figure A.7 below.

  3. Make sure to have the SK5000’s 1″ drain flow tube installed into the unit.

  4. Place the Clarisea SK5000 into the desired chamber. The number 1 plate will be in the front position on a Left to Right flow sump. The number 2 Plate will be in the front position on a Right to Left flow sump. See Figure A.5

  5. Remove the 1″ Threaded plug from the desired bulkhead adapter for use.

  6. If needed, you may have to align the SK5000 white 1" input tube with the bulkhead adapter (The bulkhead may shift during shipping). You can loosen the 1″ Bulkhead nut from the back side and adjust while screwing in the 1" SK5000 tube. Then re-tighten the bulkhead nut after putting the thumbscrews into place on the SK Plate.

  7. Use the SK Access hole and slowly screw in the SK5000’s 1″ Drain Flow tube into the included 1″ Bulkhead. This only needs to be slightly screwed in and DO NOT Overtighten it. It will be hard to remove later if it is over tightened and can also damage the threads on the bulkhead or clarisea pipe.

  8. Close the water bypass triangle on the SK5000 all the way. This will not need to be used unless you have too much flow thru the Clarisea SK5000.

  9. Do the same for the second Clarisea if you are using 2 of them.

  10. You are now ready to turn on your return pump on your system!
