    Pump Trips Breaker

    Thank you for the help! Excellent advice and an interesting result! Turning off the breaker at the pad allowed me to press the pump button on the BH2100 without issue. I could hear the relay click on and off with the button inside the controller. Then, I turned pad's circuit breaker back on and...

    Pump Trips Breaker

    Thank you. That's the direction I was leaning. Stupid question but I want to be extra careful as I'm dealing with 230v. Should be fine to turn off the power to the circuit at the main breaker, take the wires out of the back of the pool controller's own breaker, twist them together good with a...

    What filter to buy?

    Thank you all for your input and insight. I've never soaked my cartridge to clean it but I must say I'm a little skeptical of how much it would help with the situation I'm experiencing. Even with a brand new filter cartridge I was back up to over 20psi in less than 2 weeks. I can't imagine the...

    What filter to buy?

    Hello everyone, I've been reading this site for help with my pool for a little over a year now and I've found lots of great information to get me going on getting things right! I'll start off with some information about the pool: Year: 1997 (owned by me since 2011) Size: Approximately 17,000...
