Hello guys.. great forum that I've benefiting from for a while and today I decided to join and post
Facing a situation I need your help with..
I just replaced old equipment with a new Hayward SP3400VSP and a new T-15 cell.
The guy who installed the pump connected the data cable but still programmed the pump locally for a single speed.. which made no sense to me.
Then the power company sent a guy to calibrate the pump and he did some math based on size of pool then re-programmed the pump (not the panel) to alternate speeds and to work 6 hours during night and 4 before noon (which I like.. and he seemed very knowledgeable).
For that to happen, the filter timer on the panel needs to cover the 2 time windows so pump would have power when needed.
However, I think that setup is causing the cell not to make chlorine because it is not detecting flow when power is connected prior to pump run.. and my guess is confirmed because chlorine level keeps going down.
Is that a bad setup... Should I program the whole thing thru the panel? Any other advice?
