    Re: Pentair Diagnostic Wand Results

    3 days later, salt level is little higher, likely due to MA injections by Simpool to keep pH at 7.6

    Two separate tests at Leslie's came out to 3800 ppm

    The output comes on the device display connected via USB that runs IntelliSoft.exe

    Re: Pentair Diagnostic Wand Results

    Have had that wand for years. Haven't really found a use for it.

    You need to wand a unit if it is failing or giving a red light, yes? I mean, you could wand a working unit for fun, but it makes no money, and uses up time you can't charge for.
    So you're asking a failing unit to give you a report. I wonder if the reporting is accurate? or if it is false since the unit itself is failing.

    For example how do i interpret susas' readout?

    _______________________________
    This unit probably has no problems, but to view the report, could suggest otherwise.


    Total hrs reported: 73
    Hrs good NaCl: 71 +/-
    Hrs low NaCl: 35 +/-
    Hrs high NaCl: 2 +/-

    --------------------------
    Total hrs: 108
    Hmmm.
    OK

    REVERSE CYCLE 5 HRS # REVERSES 0001
    One 5 hour reverse cycle on 73 hours of cell time? The amount of total reverse time compared to total cell time indicates a low run percent on the cell, but a single five hour reverse cycle indicates a high percent cell run time, however, the total time, which most of it is low %, does not support this.

    Not to mention, getting your laptop out, wait for it to boot, find a place to set your laptop without it falling (off the heater that's running) Where you can see the screen good, just to get info that you may or may not be able to trust.

    I don't know... I think i get more use out of my firmware flasher than my wand.
