    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    Actually it was specific to the Orbi network connectivity problems and that the connection should be to modem vs wifi, otherwise there are occasional connectivity losses... I did ask him that a second time saying "router not modem correct" and he then said " .. "yeah, modem"...I left it at that...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    Im sorry, I just stumbled on to that Orbi statement while researching my Easytouch no comm issue. I dont recall which site I read it on but if I see it again will let you know. I dont think it said much other than there was an issue with it. I have the same network config you described so that...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    thanks again .. and not to get too far off the original track, but I'll ask anyway ... I've read where ScreenLogic transceiver has issues with a mesh wifi network such as the one I have with an Orbi router. I did ask the Pentair tech, he agreed there is an issue and noted if I connect to Modem...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    thanks Jim. That makes sense as I dont know why an antenna would be damaged by power outage/surge and would expect circuitry to be prone to such. So, I suppose I can get the part number off old one to replace with same. But another question ..since I've been considering the ScreenLogic...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    I am finally back at the home where the pool issue is. I took the panel off the ET box and sure enough one of the wires to the heater had come loose from the panel. I replaced it and all is now functioning correctly. Fyi, heater does stay in standby mode at all times and when heat is called for...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    sorry for the delay, been away . I can only assume when I ran the new actuator wire into the box I must have disturbed something ... the unit most definitely would turn on the heater and turn off the heater based on reaching set temp, or, whenever I turned on spa and then turned off ... now, if...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    While in STandby mode the ET will not change the mode to pool or spa when heat is called for. Jim R. You are correct, the unit was wired as 2 wire switch option. Unfortunately my ET does not send the "off signal" so the heater just continues to run till it hits the set temp per heater...
