Hay ya'll! It's my once-a-year-problem time.
My light has gone out again. I thought maybe it was just going to be that the bulbs need replacing. It's been almost 2 years since I had this light put in. I got a new gasket and replacement bulbs and of course, being my world and all, it's not the bulbs. I know there is some kind of electrical problem somewhere because I have been through 4 pumps and 5 or 6 capacitors in 4 years time; this last pump has lasted about 2 years so far but I just had to replace the capacitor yet again a couple of weeks ago. It had been on since 1/10. Every time I've had an electrician out he tells me that everything is done right and he can't find the problem.
So here I sit with the light out of the pool all covered up because of course we are having thunderstorms for the first time in 3 weeks and I don't want anything to get wet and rust until I can get an electrician to come look into it. My bottom line question is.....can I still run the pump as normal while this light is out of the pool? It appears that it is going to be several days before someone can make it over. I've had such "sparklypoolitis" for the last 4 years thanks to all you wonderful people that I don't want to ruin my streak and have it turn ugly.
