    Power ipad and raspberry pi from controller

    I figured it out. I found an old power supply that outputted 12VDC. I wired one end to120VAC in the pool box and attached the other end to the low voltage cables going to the house. Then I connected the USB cable converter to the low voltage cables.

    I put the raspberry inside the house. The controller at the bottom of the hill has a bundle of 16 low voltage conductor cables running to the house. Similar to this: I cannot figure out how to convert 120VAC or is there something on the board that will give me 12 VDC. I also connected...

    New pressure gauge question

    My old pressure gauge had water in it because the pool guy left it out over the winter in the filter lid. The pressure gauge would show 10-12 as normal pressure with backwashing above 12. This year I decided to take care of the pool myself and after opening it, the pool was green. I...

    Pentair Multi-port leak

    My pentair sm2-pp2 multi-port is leaking from the top. I was wondering what I should buy to fix it. I saw on the internet rebuild kits and complete assemblies. From everyone's experience, which one would make more sense. Here is a picture of the multi-port. Thanks -Dimitry

    Maintaining pool levels

    I was adding liquid chlorine to bring up the slam to 16 at a CYA of 40. In my initial posts, I was just writing the amounts to make sure I was adding the correct amounts but I added more after that but never posted it. Thanks -Dimitry
