    Jacuzzi Spa 355 temp sensors tripping breaker

    Yes thanks - that is exactly right. And the problem is solved. It appeared to be water that had got into the heater. Once the unit dried out, everything was perfect and back into operation. My supposition was that with the hi-limit switch disconnected the heater and thus is did not work. When...

    Jacuzzi Spa 355 temp sensors tripping breaker

    Within about 5 to 20 secs of turning on the breaker the unit trips the breaker. I removed each pump and sensor 1 at a time and have isolated it to the temperature sensors. With the sensors disconnected all other equipment operates. Any guidance on what to do or replace the sensors? I can see...

    Pentair Intellitouch to control heater to get different temperatures

    Thanks - what you note is exactly what I have done for the last year. As you note, the downfall is that the heater is available the entire time the pump runs. I only want it to be available for the portion of the day. (ie I had hoped using the second pump feature) Any ideas? Many thanks

    Pentair Intellitouch to control heater to get different temperatures

    Exactly right, I am looking to create two different schedules. However, I see no way to create a heater schedule that is exactly the issue. On the system today, you set the temperature and the intelliflo calls for heat when the temperature (from the sensor) drops below the set temperature. If...

    Pentair Intellitouch to control heater to get different temperatures

    Jason Many thanks - I can't remember the technical terms, both heaters were Raypaks and less than 3 years old. the "insides" ceramic tiles/area burnt out. It appears to me that the heater keeps working even when the flow is at or below 15GPM - I have never seen it turn off.

    Intellitouch SPA Error; when heater is required

    I have a raypak heater connected to the pool. When the pool function requires heat is activates the heater perfectly and everything is fine. In order to establish a second heating cycle at a higher temp, I have connected the SPA function to the heater. When the SPA function calls for heat, I...

    Pentair Intellitouch to control heater to get different temperatures

    I have an Intellitouch system and want to set two different set of temperatures during the day. The main reason being I do not want the heater (Rayvak) to activate when the pool is in it's normal very low flow mode - I am also using a Intelliflo VF pump so the flow is very low during the day -...

    Autopilot and Salt water eating plaster and using acid

    Jason - thanks as always and I am sure you are right. It just becomes impossible to disprove anything they say.

    Autopilot and Salt water eating plaster and using acid

    No - as per my note they never said that - they said the salt water had caused the corrosion - (also noting the pool runs 12 months of the year). I have had an ongoing issue getting the salt water system to stabilize and I also now find that no 'sacrificial' anode had been installed which Raypak...

    Autopilot and Salt water eating plaster and using acid

    A latest update; I am removing the saltwater system as I have now replaced 2 raypak natural gas heaters over the past 4 years (and raypak have advised me that it was the salt water that corroded the systems)

    Pool Clown - holding for at least 8 to 10 secs and even longer - just defaults to Rem OFF. racket - the heater has worked for a year and just changed after a power outage. it is connected to the intellitouch and it is calling for heat according to it. Any other ideas as this is very confusing...

    Autopilot water flow sensitivity

    Jason I looked at the manifold but I cannot see if it is open or closed. Excuse my ignorance but I don't know how to test/check this? Thanks

    Autopilot water flow sensitivity

    Jason Thanks and that seems to be a good idea - I am trying to look at the manual to see how to test and see that. Any help or can you point me to a url to see that?

    Autopilot water flow sensitivity

    I do clean the strainer every week (if you mean the one where the water diverts from the main flow to enter the autopilot) Any other way to do some testing? or check the sensor?
