1. My JandyColors pool light suddenly stopped working. Its was working fine several nights then stopped completely. Bulbs are only two years old and haven't been used much since then. Removed light from niche to replace gasket, all bulb filaments look ok. Very very minor amount of condensation on inside of lens. Tested light while on pool deck, no luck. I have the Jandy Aqualink with sub panel and GFCI knockout. Light wiring is wired to back of GFCI outlet. The GFCI outlet also has my landscape light transformer plugged into it. Landscape lights work fine. The GFCI will not hold the Reset button. Pressing Test button trips the landscape lights off. I can hear the relay tripping in the Jandy Aqualink Powercenter when I try to turn on the pool light via my PDA controller.
-Could it be the GFCI?
-Should I consider replacing the pool light with the niche cover/nicheless LED lights or the direct-fit standard Pool LED light? (so I don't have to replace the halogen bulbs in the future)
2. I hate using my Jandy PDA remote and noticed the new iAqualink and Autelis systems. I currently have an AqualinkRS and PDA-P8 (pool only) from ~2007. PDA only, no RS One-Touch or interior control panel. The PDA says Firmware PPD: PDA 1.2, J-box 1.29, Handheld 3.0. I would like to be able to control my pool system from my Android phone.
-Should I upgrade to the iAqualink system or Autelis? Will I need the Jandy IQ900RS or the IQ900? Is the Autelis system any better?
