I had to read my owners manual due to a "no flow" error on my Jandy Aquapure when I noticed it stated that the equipment had to be covered (sheltered) or it would void the warranty. My builder put the pad on the side of the house but never mentioned this. I was curious as to how many people have their equipment under shelter. When I called Jandy support they never asked about it. Does it make a huge difference in life expectancy?
