    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    Great idea! I know my hoses are old, and I already had to replace one section. I have a feeling that may be it!

    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    Fairly recently, IIRC in October. I think RPM.

    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    For most of two years, my Aquanaut has happily wandered around the pool, sucking up leaves and debris. Once or twice I had to open it up to remove a pebble or twig. Recently, though, it seems like every time I look at it, it's sitting still. Sometimes raising it up off of the pool floor and...

    Pool pump (not running pump, but draining pump)?

    How long does it take to drain with a garden hose? I saw another Superior with a 1.5" outlet, but can only find a 25' hose. Superior has a PN for a 50' but I can't find it anywhere...

    Pool pump (not running pump, but draining pump)?

    Any recommendations for a pump to drain a pool? Harbor Freight has some, but... it's Harbor Freight.

    Spa, heater, automation, and schedule

    It starts in spillover to dump the leaves and Crud out into the pool. The end of the cycle is running it in spa mode. That's the way the Pentair guy set it up! And it did work. I remember at some point seeing an entry in the manual that referred to a seemingly-relevant setting, but I'll be...

    Spa, heater, automation, and schedule

    Part of my pool schedule is to run the spa for 20 minutes to circulate the water daily. I used to have the heat turned on in the automation system. At some point, I turned it off, because why waste the gas when I'm not using it? But pressing the Spa button still made the heat come on...

    Pump not priming

    I think losing suction at any given position of the vaccum valve was a coincidence. I just tried again, and with that valve open, closed, or any point in between water was NOT running into the pump. I have no idea why water would sometimes run and sometimes not.

    Pump not priming

    That's the valve for my suction vac. It was open, I closed it just in case there was some hideous leak. That didn't help. But I just tried again with it open. Water did start pouring in. Closed it, water continued pouring in. The basket was nearly full and the relief valve on the filter...

    Pump not priming

    I noticed this AM my pump was shutting itself off. It wasn't priming. I cleaned out the skimmer & pump basket, then cleaned the lib and re-lubed the O-ring. For a while, it seemed to be trying to prime, but now I don't see any water being drawn in to the pump at all. The diverter on the...

    Differences between Dolphins?

    So, I found out about robot cleaners here, and am intrigued. I want to maytronicsusa.com to do research, and have questions they seem to be unable/unwilling to help with. A bunch of people here gush about the S200. That's in the "Better" class on their site. So, when I go there, I see...
