I just installed a new Intelliflo VS to replace a Jandy single speed.
Problem 1: The instructions said to turn the mail PVC hand tight plus one more turn. I did that and it leaked like crazy. So I cut the pipe and tightened it quite a bit more. I had to piece together the remaining pipe to get it all to work. It still has a very small leak. Is there some kind of putty I can put on there to stop the leak?
Problem 2: I can't figure out how all the settings and flows work. I programmed the EasyTouch with the default RPMs of 1100, 1500, 2350, 3110. However, I don't know what to do with these 4 speeds now. How do I figure out how long to run the pump at what speed?
I have a 20,000 gal pool with a raised spa, 3 return jets in the pool, 4 in the spa (with a spillway). I have solar and a gas heater. I also use a Goldline saltwater chlorinator, and a Polaris ATV cleaner.
So I need to run the pump for a few hours in the early afternoon to heat the pool to where we like it...I would assume that would be at a pretty high speed. Then I guess it could be turned down and run long enough to make enough chlorine and clean the pool.
I really don't understand what all the circuits and features are for. Do I create a circuit or feature for each speed? Does each one of those get assigned to an Aux button (I have 3 open aux buttons).
The manual doesn't really help with any of this.
