Thread: Reading when spa over 100 degrees - Aquapure 1400

    Reading when spa over 100 degrees - Aquapure 1400

    My system tends to start showing a fault when the spa temperature is over 100 degrees (based on spa water reading). The Aquapure 1400 tends to think the water is about 5 degrees hotter than it actually is, which may be part of the problem. As soon as water temperate gets back to mid 90's the fault goes away and Aquapure functions fine.

    Is there any solution to this?

    Can the temp sensor in the Aquapure 1400 be calibrated?

    Trying this again. My AquaPure 1400 is out of calibration for TEMPERATURE only. Its reading is about 5 degrees too high at all times. I have twice replaced the sensor but it does not affect this issue. Is there a way to address. My AquaPure consistently ready "fault" when the SPA is at 104 degrees because it thinks SPA is 109 degrees. Error goes away once SPA cools to 96 degrees or so,

    Temp sensor cannot be calibrated.

    How often and for how long are you heating at 104?

    Frequently heat to 104 - whenever we use the spa. Maybe 3 days/week on average for 3 months. Usually gets heated for 4 hour intervals.

    My suggestion is to turn the SWG to 0% when you use the spa. The spa is a very small body of water and the SWG can over chlorinate it very quickly.

    I wish it were that easy. Turning off SWG requires a lot of button pressing on the Jandy panel. My wife is not going to do that. And there is no way to set a timer for the SWG that I know of.
