    Pentair Screenlogic and Mac Catalina

    Very annoying. Thankfully I still have an old MacBook that I was able to fire up to update the brick and at least Screenlog runs on that laptop. Very frustrating I cannot use a modern iMac with Catalina to run ScreenLogic and this version of MacOS has been out for 7 months.

    Pentair IC40 salt cell PPM level issue

    Yes it is generating chlorine and levels are normal. Currently running the cell at 20%. Good to know not to rely on the cell reading.

    Pentair IC40 salt cell PPM level issue

    I have an IC40 in use for our 1 year old pool and recent readings on the cell are about 600ppm higher from my electronic salinity tester and two independent pool stores. The IC40 registers 3300 and the other tests all come back around 2700. Is this normal? Do salt levels at the pump generally...

    Temp is good to go now. Still working out to find the best pump schedule. Funny thing is the pool guy that is maintaining the pool for the first month after startup says that trouble free pool is the worst site and don’t listen to anyone there. HA! I think they just want to keep customers...

    Has anyone experienced temperature sensor issues? The temp coming from the Pentair sensor (via ScreenLogic App) is about 8-9 degrees higher than the thermometer in the pool: 90 from Pentair vs 81/82 using a traditional pool thermometer. Temp is definitely not 90 so Pentair is wrong... Here is...

    Too late for us to change the plumbing, but good advice.

    Very minor leaks addressed so we are good. Irrigation is being don’t today then landscaping later this week! I am ready to have grass in the back yard once again for sure. What pump schedule do you all run?

    Leak detection will be here on Thursday to check the entire pool inside and out... at least right now water is not filling the trench as much by the equipment.

    Contract has drainage to edge of decking... that’s fine - I can dig a trench to connect to another drain pipe near the pool

    Good question - the PB is going to finish this issue. Lots of checking behind I have learned with building a pool. I still like the PB even though there have been mistakes. Anytime something not right has been pointed out by me, they have fixed it pretty quick. Except the pebble main drain...

    From the PB on the overflow drain... “Ok, I’ll need to do some more digging and find the end. I thought the idea of putting a valve on it came up after your pool. It might of been during your pool. So the decking crew said they have a builder that decided to put valves on the overflow lines...

    And I found the overflow pipe covered in dirt about a foot down and plugged with mud

    That exposed white pipe is from the deck drains and one downspout from the gutters on the house. I’m actually not sure where the overflow goes now that you mention it.

    PB ordered leak detection company to come out and they will pressure test all pipes and inside the pool with dye. Hopefully not too long when they can come out.
