    Intelitouch remote reading sensor error- solar

    We are in the process of getting our home painted. Today when I got home the remote is reading sensor error- pool solar sensor

    How can I trouble shoot this before I need to call out the pool repair guy.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers!

    Usually that means the sensor has been disconnected. Follow the wire from the control unit to the solar sensor on the roof. Perhaps the painters have broken the wire or pulled it out.

    Thanks Jason. Found the tear. Do I need to reset anything once I have fixed the wire?

    You shouldn't have to reset anything, however, if you're splicing the wire back together make sure you use waterproof connectors (the sensors really don't like added resistance in the circuit-ruins their whole day, and makes their readings inaccurate)

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!
