Help ! Hi all, I've been working on pools for just under a year now . I have a new client that needed a new heater installed. So I went ahead and installed a Rheem/Raypak 399k, natural gas, electronic ignition heater. No problem connecting the two wires from the Compool to the heater, one wire to spa and the other to the 24v line as shown in the manual. Now here is were I'm lost and very frustrated!!! I'm not familiar with Hayward Ecostar pumps at ALL. And I have very little knowledge of Compool. But to me compool is Pentair intellitouch , early version, for lack of a better description.
After reading the PITA Hayward Ecostar instructions, I see that I am to set it up, to be controlled by relay contacts with the compool. I'm lost ! The old pool guy installed the Ecostar and presumably wired it correctly as well as programed it. I don't see how I can get different speed with relays, aren't relays just closed or open ? After it primes, it appear to slow down to around 600 RPMs. From what I have leaned this seems to slow to run a gas heater, yes ? will the heat exchanger not scale ?Also, once I had the heater kick off on high limit, yikes! I'm just lost! Do I program the compool for cleaning cycle or the Ecostar ? Any and all advise or input would be greatly appreciated. Thank You !!! Bil
