I just installed my IntelliChem that I bought last year. Already had IntelliTouch and IC-60 running since pool was installed last year. The first thing that is really giving me trouble is what appears to be a step backwards in control of the IC-60. Without IntelliChem, I can control the IC-60 run percentage via Screen Logic from anywhere... even change it when out of town remotely if someone at home checks FC and see it low or high. But with IntelliChem installed, I see NO way of telling it NOT to control my IC-60. I have IntelliChem set to dose my IC-60 by time with 30 min dose and 10 min off time. Since I usually run my cell at 75%. And when it controls it, the ONLY way I can find to change the run time is via the IntelliChem front panel. Can't change it at all from Screen Logic. So I lose all remote control of IC-60 on time. If I need more or less than the 75% I cant do it remotely... and I can't tell IntelliChem to stop automatic control so I can get control again. Am I missing something here?
I have also read through all of the threads about IntelliChem... and I expected my initial ORP reading to be higher than it is... with the pool numbers at:
pH=7.6 (Intellichem matches this exactly)
my ORP is 625. I have only just turned on the IntelliChem... so I want to see what the readings are for a few days... my IntelliChem was purchased in 8/13... but I noticed it has old firmware (1.030) and the probes has April 14 dates on them. I wonder if this sat on the shelf for a year or more before I bought it.
