    Ok so I just got the courage to turn it back on lol. And it returned to original shape. Yay I guess? Pentair so far giving me the run around. Builder wants no part in it. What to do now? See more pics attached.

    Filter sucking itself in!

    I was under the impression the check valve was needed to keep the salt/chlorine from going back into the heater. Also this happened the first time right after build. Which was before the heater/check valve was installed. Heater check valve installed 2 months ago.

    Bonding between Pump, Heater, Salt Generator Question

    Hello, I just recently had a heater installed and on the bonding lug my installer ran a green wire back inside the heater to the metal. I could have sworn that they were supposed to run a wire from the bonding lug to join the other wire that is hooked to my pump, generator, and...

    Wifi at pool area
