    Just a little tidbit about the ICXX cold water stop I didn't know

    Thanks, Jim. I am in the Riverside area of So Cal, so I do not know if DFW area is much different than my location as far as Winter average temp. When my SWG is in cold cutoff 10 0z of liquid CL I had from the Fall seems to keep my CL at 5-6 ppm and happy. This is my first Winter with SWG so I...

    Just a little tidbit about the ICXX cold water stop I didn't know

    My IC60 has been giving a cold water stop light for a few days now. The light was on this morning, and then when I checked about 5 hours later the IC60 was back to generating Chlorine! I thought that when the unit powered up in the morning, it detected cold water and stopped until the next power...

    Time for the Stenner to take over

    Installed my IC60 last May and ran it all Summer. What a joy. It replaced a Stenner pump that I used for a few years before converting to the SWG. Now that the water temp has fallen enough to make the SWG not work, I will revert back to the Stenner for the Winter. Really glad now that I did not...

    IC60 cold water stop

    Thanks for the replys, will just let it go. 90's temp would be nice, I hate the cold!

    IC60 cold water stop

    My IC60 finally stopped working with a cold water temp indication. Pool water according to Easy Touch is 54 degrees, but probably the thermistor in IC60 is indicating 52 degrees or less to the IC60. Too bad the thermistor in the IC60 is NTC or I might be tempted to put a small value resistor in...

    LED pool light sometimes trips GFCI breaker

    Check all of your connections inside the junction box where you connected the light to be sure they are secure. Make sure there is no moisture inside the box and that the gasket between the top and bottom of the box is in place. Gary

    Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 - inspect cell

    Look around on the Web sites for end of year clearance deals on the Intellichlor. Not many people want to buy a new SWG just before winter. I just installed my IC60 last May and hope I can get as many hours out of mine as you did with you yours.

    IC60 zero salt indication

    Did your temp test. The 60% and 80% lights come on. Actual pool temp is 75 degrees. I did not get a model number from the switch. Unit is working great now so I am not going to tear it apart. 3 wire switch works with 4 wire cell and 4 wire switch works with 4 wire cell. I do not know if any...

    IC60 zero salt indication

    When I first talked to the Pentair rep, he informed me that they have a new vendor for the flow switch and that he was sending one of the new ones. Included was an instruction manual for the switch installation that showed connecting the red, black and white wires from the switch to the...

    IC60 zero salt indication

    Got the new flow switch and installed it today. Salt reading is now normal (displays 3300 ppm, actual salt is 3200 ppm). I measured the old thermistor and it was reading about 200 Ohms (no good for a 10K thermistor). The new thermistor read 9.2K at my shop temp of about 80 degrees. I still do...

    IC60 zero salt indication

    Thank you Jim. I will dissect the old switch and try to see what I can see. I know the switch is OK, but I can take resistance measurements of the Thermistor at various temperatures to see if it has any kind of Log function as a Thermistor should have. I just tried running the pool with a...

    IC60 zero salt indication

    Update: Contacted Pentair this morning and after only a 5 minute wait explained the problem. Tech said probably a flow switch and was going to open a case and have a rep come out to replace the switch. I told him just to send me the switch and I would replace it. After looking for their closest...

    IC60 zero salt indication

    Thanks, Jim I will start by insuring all connections are good, then install a new flow switch followed by the surge board. If not fixed, I will just live with it until the cell dies. I will report back if I can fix the problem. Gary

    IC60 zero salt indication

    My IC60, installed last May is showing zero salt in the ScreenLogic PC and Android applications. All lights on the IC60 are normal and the unit is producing CL. I can adjust the run percentage from ScreenLogic, so it would seem that the RS485 interface is working. The IC60 is connected through...
