    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    Confirmed that automation is Pentair Easy Touch. The Raypak Heater is a propane R406A-EP-C. I cannot raise the temp above the 104 top limit on the Raypak control panel.

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    I'm 95% certain it is a Pentair Easy Touch. As the spa is getting cooler, the Pentair control confirms that the temperature is decreasing. The spa could be set to 104, but the water temp is only reading 101 and the heater is not producing heat. At this same time, the RayPak heater's display on...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    I bought the house a few months ago so I don't have all the details of the pool and equipment, which were all pre-existing. It is a gunnite pool with attached spa, which is approximately 28k gallons combined. The automation is Pentair. It has a Pentair variable speed pump and DE filter. The...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    The pool is controlled by automation. The water temperature readings are in agreement as it is warming up. However, once it achieves the set temperature is when the delta grows. As you can imagine, it's pretty annoying when you get into it nice and hot, but the heat shuts off and water cools...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    Hi all. I have a Raypak propane heater on my attached spa. I don't know the exact age of the heater as we bought the house this summer. I suspect it is 4+ years old, but only guessing. This issue I have is when I heat up the spa, it comes up to temperature nicely, but once it reaches the desired...

    New Jersey Pool Heater - Has natural gas line but runs heater with propane. Why?

    No easement issue. House was built in 98 and appears to have always had NG. The line into the house is no more than 20’ from either the heater or the above ground propane tanks. My RE agent is continuing to ask the seller the reasoning for the set up. It’s not a deal breaker, but I’d hate to...

    New Jersey Pool Heater - Has natural gas line but runs heater with propane. Why?

    Hello. I am buying a home in South New Jersey that has an inground pool with built-in spa. The house has a natural gas line run to it for heating and other appliances, but it ALSO has two large above ground propane tanks that run the pool/spa heater. I’m trying to understand the logic in having...

    Nicheless LED Light Replacement Options

    I’ve had my Jandy nichless lights replaced almost every 4 months since I bought them two years ago. Fortunately, they have been very good about the replacement process. When I had some replaced this summer, the company that has been installing them said that Jandy was field testing a new version...

    iAqualink Losing Connection When Making Change

    I have been having the same issue for months. Called Jandy a bunch of times. No luck. Even had them replace the iaqualink antenna. Didn’t help. I am convinced it’s a software issue on their end and I hope they figure it out soon. Very annoying. FWIW, I’m using the app on an iPhone X. What device...

    Jandy Lights Cycle each time to get to new color

    There's no way to go directly from one color to another. However, I did find a solution to the cycling every time they turn on. It was really bothering me and I also had the feeling that switching on/off so many times was causing unnecessary wear. The way I solved it was by changing the light...

    Best way to clean calcium from glass tiles on waterfall?

    Does anyone have a recommendation on how to get calcium buildup off of glass tiles that run along a spa with waterfall flow over into the pool? The tiles are smooth and glossy, so I am concerned about using a pumice stone or anything too abrasive. I don’t want to end up with a bunch of fine...
