    Burning through chlorine

    I did the SLAM after. Is this a new acronym for here? I’ve been on here off and on for years but don’t recall it being called this??? I’m about 4 days into the process. Does it usually take this long?

    Burning through chlorine

    Hi! I’ve had a few patches of yellow algae over the last few weeks. They scrubbed up with no problem. I’m in the process of super chlorinating (liquid 10%) the pool to wipe it out. The pool looks great but I’m burning through chlorine. Going from a 20ppm to 2.5ppm. I have scrubbed the pool and...

    Adding JVA to water feature

    The handle isn’t on it but I don’t believe so. I will double check to be sure. This JVA is supposed to be full open or close.

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Maybe the better question is: Can I add a JVA valve to an open Aux port?

    Adding JVA to water feature

    PoolGate, thanks for the reply. What would your suggestion be for the proper way to physically wire and program the valve for my deckjets?

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Thanks Dodger. I tried that but no luck. I assigned the cleaner port to Aux 6 in the JVA menu. I went into the Aux menu and renamed it to “deck jets.” Just to be clear, I don’t have anything plugged physically into the Aux 6 port? The JVA is plugged into the cleaner port.

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Hello, I recently upgraded my controller to the iAqualink system. Easy upgrade and everything works right out of the gate with the exception of one JVA valve. I’m having trouble setting up one of my water features. Aux 1 - activates secondary pump and sheer descent. I need to activate a JVA...

    Question on upgrading from PDA to iAqualink

    I have the Aqualink PDA system which I have it set to control my pool, spa, heater, lights, waterfall, deck jets and gas fire feature. If I upgrade to the iAqualink, will I have to reprogram all the features and valves? I’m guessing yes since it will require changing the board...at least I think...

    Spa refurbish advice

    We are ready to start tackling our buried spa (courtesy of the previous owner). From what I can gather, they just cut the pipes at the equipment pad and left them buried. The spa is just filled with rocks and dirt, then added concrete on top. Since its not a spill over spa, what is...

    Mine quit working after only being installed a month. Thanks for the info and link to order the switches. Mine just went out so hopefully this works! Edit 6/24/17: it worked! Thank you!

    Installed Pentair's IntelliPH

    I'm thinking of getting the IntelliPH as well. Do you control it through your EasyTouch system? Or is it stand alone? I like how you used an actual T instead of the saddle clamp. Do I only need one or two? Are there separate probes for injection of acid versus checking chemistry?

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    It works! Changed everything to Feature 1 and must have solved the problem. Thank you Jim and GDN for the help!

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    There is no change from hitting the Aux1. The pump continues at the same speed. Nothing happens when I push the button. The pump speed doesn't change and the valve doesn't move. - - - Updated - - - Is there an easier way to set a function to activate the valve and schedule it? At this point...

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Hi Jim, Thanks for catching those errors. I made the changes but still not getting the actuator to turn though the panel command? Pentair has made this a very frustrating process. I appreciate the help!
