    Maytronics S200

    FYI I have an s200 that started tripping the GFCI after running for less than a minute. Plugged into a non gfi outlet it ran fine. Called support, they said the controller box is bad. Sent a new one out ASAP and works perfect again. Would suggest calling maytronics support.

    Dolphin S200 tripping GFCI

    Just to update anyone that encounters a similar issue, Maytronics replaced the power supply via warranty and it works just fine again. No GFCI issues. Thanks everyone!

    Eye irritation

    That's a great possibility. UV index said 11 that day so the kids were lathered up pretty good. I'm gonna settle with that for the logic. Thanks for the insight!

    Eye irritation

    So the CC was cleared out by sun before I tested it again the day after? I would accept that as the answer except one thing. My 3 kids went swimming the day before the party when FC was 6. Only 1 of them had red eyes and she complained a lot that they hurt. Typically all the kids are fine, no...

    Eye irritation

    It was FC 6 the night before. I did not test after. The following day (today) I measured 5.5. SWG running it's usual 60% duty cycle. I don't think FC would drop drastically and immediately be replaced by 3hrs of SWG run time though...maybe? Since my pH has been uncharacteristically rock...

    Eye irritation

    We just had a pool party and a lot of kids, and adults including myself, noticed a significant amount of eye irritation that I don't recall ever having before. Test results are from Taylor k2006. FC 5.5 CC 0 pH 7.6 TA 70 CH 120 CYA 60 Salt 3000 84 degree water temp Pool is clear and looks...

    Dolphin S200 tripping GFCI

    So I made sure everything is dry and tried again. Still trips. This time I counted it off and it trips everytime right at about 38 seconds after I turn the robot on. Does something happen at that time point in the robot? I'm trying to be narrow down where the problem could be.

    Dolphin S200 tripping GFCI

    I have a fairly new S200 that I replaced an old pressure side cleaner about two months ago. Loving it until now. When I start it, it trips the GFCI outlet at random times but usually within two minutes of starting the cycle. I've replaced the GFCI outlet with no change. The outlet does not...

    Use of Cyclone Blower to close pool

    The pipe on the right coming from ground to pump is water coming from skimmer. The pump pushes it through the filter and back to the pool returns through the pipe on the left.

    First time closing questions

    Thanks! Another question came to mind. I have a cover pump that the previous owner would leave on and on the first step going into pool. Should I continue doing that? I guess the theory is any rainfall will raise the water level and the pump would keep it below the skimmer. Good idea or not?

    First time closing questions

    Hi everyone! Bought a house with a pool this year, wasted a bunch of money at the pool store, grew some algae, found TFP and have been sparkling clear and saving money for the rest of the summer. Great site! Now I'm looking at closing this pool myself. I read a lot of the posts and will be...

    SWG shot?

    This thing is wacky. Check/clean cell came up on display. Pulled the cell and it was scaling again which I cleaned off with acid. I just cleaned it out with muriatic acid a week ago. Now I'm getting 30V and 4-6A. Troubleshooting guide says bad cable connection (all seems well to me), scaled...

    SWG shot?

    Salt was measured at 3360 by the pool store. I have not checked it myself. Any recommendation on an accurate salt test? I'm using Taylor K2006 for everything else right now.

    SWG shot?

    Thanks James. So when the cell dies can I expect to see the current drop to 0? Does current within specified range pretty much guarantee proper functioning? I don’t want to go to 24/7 pump time. Maybe time to upgrade the cell. I think the previous owner was getting ripped off bad. He did...

    SWG shot?

    22V, 7.8A. Everything looks right but FC was 7 last night and 5 when I just checked. So lost 2ppm with it running 100% still. Water temp is 90 if that matters? No heater it’s just that warm. I wish I had a chiller!
