Here's my setup....
16x32 vinyl liner pool only / no spa / 21k gallons
Intellitouch i5+3s panel / Mobiletouch wireless remote
Intelliflow VS pump / Pentair sand filter / Pentail 200k Mastertemp heater
Hayward inline hockey puck chlorinator
Pentair Intellibrite LED color changing light
Inter-fab X-Stream 2 Slide w/ Valve Actuator
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what the priming parameters on the Mobiletouch remote do for my VS pump. There are 2 settings on the remote at the following menu location --> MENU --> SETUP --> EQUIPMENT --> INTELLIFLO --> IFlo VS #1 --> PRIMING PARAMETERS -->
PRIMING TIME 0 MIN
PRIMING SPEED 1800 RPM
I understand the VS pump is supposed to cycle for 3 sec. @ 1800 RPM and then determine, based on current draw, whether the pump is primed or empty. If primed, it's supposed to revert to the specified RPM for whatever program it's in. If not primed, it's supposed to kick up into max RPM.
I've got 2 issues....
#1 - Every single time the pump starts, after 3 sec., it always kicks up to max RPM of 3,450, even when the basket is full of water with no air in it.
#2 - There's a sensitivity setting of 1% from the factory - I've taken this all the way to 100% and the pump still always kicks up to max RPM.
#3 - The PRIMING TIME and PRIMING SPEED on the Mobiletouch above don't seem to do anything, at all.
Can anyone explain why the 100% sensitivity doesn't keep the pump from priming at max RPM?
Can anyone explain what the 2 settings on the Mobiletouch do?
This entire Intellitouch system is really way too complicated, the manual is poorly written, and all of the controls and menus seem to have been hacked together with no forethought. For as much money as this system costs, it's really pretty bad.
