    Dolphin working but not communicating with power supply.

    Maytronics has so far replied with the ever helpful "have you tried turning it off and back on again yet?"

    Dolphin working but not communicating with power supply.

    The app seems to work fine as I can connect, change the cleaning mode, and start a job... It's just that when the job starts, I get this... Now, while this is shown on the app, the robot is happily cleaning away like he's supposed to. And, if I click "STOP" on the app, he does stop. It...

    Dolphin working but not communicating with power supply.

    So I shouldn't be running my robot right now then, eh? I mean... he's only got another 10 minutes to go on his 2 hour cycle. I'm assuming this would be inside the robot that you are talking about? If that's the case then I'm looking at a warranty claim it seems.

    Dolphin working but not communicating with power supply.

    Getting 0 replies here on TFP is concerning... I've hit a unique issue which probably means parts replacement. I did send a note off to dolphin support through the phone app yesterday, hope to hear something back soon.

    Dolphin working but not communicating with power supply.

    So, started my Active 30 this morning from my phone. About the time it started the self-test, I got an error in the app stating the robot is not responding and asking me to check the blue cable. The little guy appears to be working fine... doing his thing right now, cleaning away. It just...

    Plug DE after drain?

    Might seem a silly question, but does everyone re-plug their DE filters after they drain them? I have visions of local field mice making a home in there over the winter if I don't.

    Light Niche Algae?

    So, after finally taking my light off for the first time to clean the niche I've discovered a few things. 1. It's surprisingly easier to remove then I thought it would be. One screw. 2. Two screws to remove the trim ring from the light, which I'm glad I did because there was gunk behind it...

    Light Niche Algae?

    Because this is bothering me, I've shot an email off to Hayward asking this very question... is just having water in the niche sufficient such that I can gasket the light. It will be interesting to see if they give a response beyond "modification nulls warranty."

    Light Niche Algae?

    I'd imagine the light housing and retainer ring would be the largest surface area between front and back of the light, no? What little open exposure there is for water to move between has to be negligible I'd think. But, I'm no thermal expert either. Perhaps a thermal dabbler? :LOL:

    Light Niche Algae?

    So here is an interesting question... if the light (Hayward ColorLogic 4 in my case) is tight enough to prevent decent water circulation how does it dissipate heat from the back? I have a hard time imagining temperature differential would create enough movement to push the hot water out the top...

    Light Niche Algae?

    OK... so next step is to invent a never-leak pool design. I think it might involve a lot of dirt and planting grass. ;) That's pretty cool... eliminate the problem. (y) Unless you already have a niche of course...

    Light Niche Algae?

    Bah... that all make sense, but seems like such a stupid self-created problem. Can't have it sealed or else the light will get too hot and burn out, but it isn't open enough to allow for good circulation. Someone should invent a light niche that has vents around it and can be hooked to a...
