    Disabling SWG

    It won’t turn off with the power button. It just has an alert that the cell is missing and the power button is useless. Now I’m thinking I’ll have to plug the cell back in, hit power, then remove the cell...

    Disabling SWG

    We had a great first year with our RJ60+. We’re getting our pool remodeled in the spring and we won’t be able to use the SWG for the first 30 days. I bought a bypass valve for when we close. Do I need to disable the flow switch? Right now the salt console turns on with the pump. What’s the best...

    Renovation tips for eastern PA (philly burbs)

    I’m totally interested in this thread because we’re also renovating our old pool and we live in the same area. The price we were quoted sounds similar to yours. We’re trying to decide between brick or concrete cantilever coping. What are you go in go with? What finish?

    Lanternflies

    Anyone else here from PA dealing with the spotted lanternfly invasion in your pool this year? I’m running the pump constantly and there’s always at least 100 on the surface. After I skim, 50 will fall back in. Any tricks on dealing with these suckers? We live in the woods, which doesn’t help...

    Bad O Ring/ High Pressure

    I cleaned the filter cartridges again with a garden hose and wiped and lubed the o ring. I got the leak to stop! Filter pressure is 0 when off. Went back to 20 after cleaning filters but today we’re back at 30. FC 9 CC 0 TA 80 PH 7.8 CYA 80 SALT 3400 Water is crystal clear other than pine...

    Bad O Ring/ High Pressure

    Our cartridge filter is leaking. A new o ring has been ordered. Is it normal for pressure to be high as a result? I cleaned the cartridges yesterday and the pressure hasn’t dropped. The new o ring won’t arrive until tomorrow.
