The ProtoMAX system requires a 240V AC / 30A power source and access to water and a drain. The power requirement is similar to a household clothing dryer and is required to drive the 5 horsepower pump. Check out our Utility Requirements document for more information. Water temperature and quality can impact how well the ProtoMAX runs. While we have successfully tested the ProtoMAX over a wide range of temperatures and water conditions, we offer the following recommendations for optimal operation:
  • Temperature: 45 - 80°F
  • pH Level: 6.5 – 8.5
  • Total Dissolved Solids < 250 ppm
  • Calcium < 17ppm
  • Magnesium < 6 ppm
  • Iron < 0.3 ppm
  • Manganese < 0.05 ppm
  • Chloride < 100 ppm
  • Sulfate < 200 ppm
  • Silica < 10 ppm
