I love your site! It has been very helpful for me, a brand new pool owner, who just bought a house with a pool and I'm trying to get it opened by myself. I know I'm the one who will be monitoring and maintaining the pool all summer so I really wanted to open it and get it started myself.
I have gotten as far as ordering my TF-100, which will hopefully arrive mid-week. I took off the cover, cleaned out the debris I could reach, took the anti-freeze out of the skimmers and took out the winter plugs from the return lines and replaced them with eyeball jet things. I spent most of yesterday raising up the water level and then today decided to tackle turning the whole shebang on!
Here is what happened (pictures attached). I get an error message on the EasyTouch board. It says "AIR ERR" and "POOL ERR" I can't see that my pump is priming. I tried filling the skimmer bucket with water until it overflowed, still didn't seem to be working. I originally had both valves open but then changed it to only having the one valve open. I am definitely stuck. Help please??
