    Raypak 206A - sensor open

    Hey TFP friends, I powered on my Raypak heater after having my pool replastered. The LCD panel immediately is showing "sensor open". Before draining the pool, I removed both drain plugs, turned off the breaker, turned off the gas, and covered the heater. We had snow here in Colorado over Labor...

    Old Aquaslide Duke slide - need deck flanges

    thanks @JamesW and @Arizonarob it is an indoor pool. I took off one of the slide legs--it wasn't even screwed to the underside of the slide! It seems the KoolDeck surface was poured around the slide legs. The legs themselves were never mounted to the deck! The leg is a standard 1.9" diameter...

    Old Aquaslide Duke slide - need deck flanges

    Add another +1 to the boneheads who installed this slide without deck flanges. It seems leg diameter is fairly standardized in the pool industry at 1.9" OD. When I measure the outer circumference with a string and do the math, the diameter of my slide legs are 2.03". Is that diameter even an...

    Could someone identify this model of Aquaslide?

    that looks just like mine. It's the Aquaslide Duke. The Duke has three legs, the Queen has four. Mine was installed without deck flanges! I'm looking for deck flanges to install, yet according to my measurements the diameter of the leg tubing is just over 2", which definitely seems non-standard.

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    @Bama Rambler the timer is at least five years old. It was installed when I bought the house. If it is dead, I'm thinking of getting a new timer (maybe not Intermatic), adding a GFCI outlet, and maybe some remote control functionality. This is for an indoor pool. The pump closet is protected...

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Thanks @Bama Rambler and @Jimrahbe . I have no display on my P1353ME and the relays don't function. 1. 240V Voltage reads properly on pins 1,2,3,& 5. 2. I removed the jumper connecting 5 & 7. 3. I verified the Core35 works as expected when plugged into a GFCI outlet. 4. I verified the fuse on...

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Wow, I'm stumped. I wired it correctly. I'm going to try to wire a plug to the Core35 and try plugging it into a GFCI to see if it functions as expected. I wonder if circuit 3 is meant for 240V. Maybe it's only for low power devices? Any other advice? --Jason

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Guys, The manual says, The Circupool Core 35 Control Module uses a switch-mode power supply designed to automatically accept either 120VAC or 220VAC. I see no ability to set it myself. I thought I wired it correctly. But the P1353ME went into protection mode. The breaker didn’t trip. I think...

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    thanks @Bama Rambler and @Jimrahbe . Does it matter which wire of the SWCG's cord I connect to L1 and L2 to pin 8?

    Planning a pool in Denver

    Hey Coloradans, I'm here too. We are about to get our indoor pool replastered by Integrity Pool Builders in Littleton. They start in a couple weeks. They do new construction too. They seem good so far--I can give you a better review once they finish.

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Jim, thanks again. The Core35 has a power cord coming out of it typically used to plug into a GFCI. My intention was always to wire it into the Intermatic. Good thing, because the unit shipped with wire leads as opposed to a standard wall plug. I have the black wire connected to pin 7 and the...

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Jim, My wiring matches what you've drawn, thanks for the effort. The only addition is you're bringing L1 from pin 1 to pin 8, right? Is your notation at the lower-right of the image showing the voltage stepped down from 220 to 120? The Circupool Core 35 Control Module uses a switch-mode power...

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Jim, Yes, my 2-speed pump works at both speeds and yes, it runs on 240V. The pump's hot wire is on pin 1. The common is on pin 4, The red wire is on pin 6. I think I want the SWCG to run on 240V...more efficient, right?.

    Intermatic P1353ME - no power on circuit 3

    Jim, Thanks for your insight. I have pin 2 jumped to pin 7 for the SWCG. You're right--my diagram is wrong. How should I get L1 (pin 1) to circuit 3? I attached an updated diagram.
