    Is this a temp sensor?

    Hi!

    This device is strapped into the pipe that outflows from my pool pump and has two purple discs that are crumbling. I will call these resistors until someone corrects me


    I was going to replace it based on the crumbling although the water temp seems to be correct when checked against a thermometer.

    Yes I agree with Jbizzle that is a temp sensor..In regards to the purple discs that are crumbling those look like UY connectors to me for connecting wires together.

    HEATER: None at the moment but in process of making my solar panels should be operational by next season!

    OK - so I'll replace those by the wet season then.

    Yup, sorry I overlooked the wire crimps that are crumbling ... easy enough to cut off and replace

    They were probably put in when the original temp sensor failed, and for, whatever reason, the repairman didn't want to run a new wire. If the sensor needs to be replaced again, buy one with a long enough wire to get to wherever it has to go (as the splice connectors age, they add resistance, which affects the accuracy of the sensor).

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!

    Fantastic!
    It had been replaced at one time (this tells the solar to come on as well correct?)

    That was a sweet piece of information!

    Thanks!

    All u guyz!
