    Recommendation for PH tester

    I just started using it regularly. I used it once before prior to a 4 week trip. Do you know how long the life of the KCl is? Only a one "vial" amount is provided upon purchase; wondering if I need to stock up.

    Recommendation for PH tester

    Thanks for your analysis. I've been wondering why mine (PH60) has been taking longer recently. Perhaps it is the cooler water here in the Northern Hemisphere. However when on the phone with the company's tech support I was told that the probes are only designed to last 6-18 months, and one of...

    Dolphin S200 Repair Experience

    Thanks for sharing. My S200 is about 9 months old so hoping I don't need the service but good to know it's there.

    HP of My Pump and Other Questions

    Just wanted to add that another reason for not going with the V-Green 165 was that I likely would not utilize the digital inputs function; therefore I would not be able to know the time on its internal clock. That could cause an out-of-sync condition between my SWG's timer and the motor/pump...

    Thanks again Chris for the follow-up. As an update I came across a good deal/delivery date on my existing motor so I went ahead and purchased that one. I only run the motor during off-peak hours, so I figured with the 2 speeds my energy costs are low enough. I also purchased a new impeller...

    Thanks for your response Chris! I'll address your comments/questions below: I need to get moving on motor selection as my pool has been without for 3-4 days now. Luckily it's winter! I may go ahead and get the 1.65 V-green and worry about the digital inputs later. Thanks again.

    Merged threads - TFP Mod My filter pump motor died a few days ago and I've been doing a little research for replacement motors. My current motor is a two-speed, 1.5/.2 HP one with an on-board digital timer. It seems like similar motors are difficult to find, so I have been looking as VS...

    Thanks James. I am assuming these are minimum THPs? In other words if I went with the V-Green 2.7 HP motor, it would work with all impellers?

    Thanks James. Unfortunately the label is no longer there. I won't be able to determine the impeller P/N until I remove and disassemble the old pump. I guess I should do that prior to ordering the new pump? My pump's strainer lid is an SP-3100D if that helps.

    Thanks Allen. Interesting that the pump has the same CAT No. as mine though. Oh well. OK makes sense. But either will work with my impeller and pump?

    Thanks James. I've decided to replace my motor, as the pump is working fine. 1) My current 2-speed motor is "No longer Available" at InyoPools, but I found it here. I have to call for pricing, but do you think this motor will be compatible with my current one and work with my Super II? 2)...

    OK thanks. Now for Frames, Flanges and Frames...I found this motor which has a C-Flange but is a 56 Frame I believe. The bottom of the page has motors with a "C Face". Would the linked motor work for me?

    Hi, Attached is the label from my 2-speed filter motor pump. I don't understand the 1.5/.20 HP specification. Does anyone have any ideas? Also I suspect the issue I am having with it requires a new run capacitor. I replaced the start capacitor this morning and it didn't resolve the issue...

    Pool Math questions

    It's not urgent to test your fill water, but you should soon because it is good info for determining how evaporation will impact your chemistry. Also, when draining your pool in order to lower CYA, don't drain much before you start to refill. In New Orleans the water table is pretty high and...

    Suggestions for Layout of New SWCG

    Thanks Fred. I will probably use pucks once my SWG stops producing. I have a little CYA headroom, and I shouldn't need many because of the low demand this time of year. I will put a reminder on my calendar every 6 months or so to check the timers on the pool pump and the SWG timer.
