hi, first time poster. Recently bought a home with a pool and having issues. this is our first home with a pool.
The home came with a Jandy RS8 with PDA automation (Jandy Aqualink PDA 52 Pin Board PDA PS8 8273 4.1 PPD) and everything was working well (2 of the 3 pool lights were not working ) and the system used to beep every minute. Called the pool guy who said, the salt system needs cleaning and suggested i convert to chlorine by disconnecting the salt system and putting the floater with chlorine tablets . this did not solve the beep problem so the pool guy returned to debug the system and in doing so, messed it up completely and says the mother board is dead and other than replacing the motherboard and chip , there is no option.
He sends a technicians who installs a iaqualink system (says cannot got a replacement for my old PDA board). the boards wifi cannot connect to my router so i pull in a LAN cable and the system starts up. After the tech leaves, i notice that the Spalight turns ON and OFF randomly and so does the spa pump i.e.; the spa and pump will turn ON outside of the schedule. I cleared the memory and reset the system couple of times but this does not solve the problem. any clues what could be wrong here? I am also thinking of getting rid of this iaqualink system and buying a 52pin board from ebay similar to the original. Do you think that could solve this problem?
so overall pretty unhappy with the system abd service. From a beeping system that worked well otherwise i am not $600 down with a system that works randomly
