    So got it installed Sunday GFI keeps tripping, Tried another outlet still trips.even with the unit turned off Waiting to hear back from Intex I heard these GFI had issues , some folks just put a plug on it? I have GFI at the breaker , so that wouldnt be an issue for me and safety.

    Chlorine Consumption - What is considered normal?

    So bad luck continues I ordered this unit. Installed Sunday. GFI wont stay off. It never powers up. The GFI shuts off everytime I plug it in, I have tried several outlets, and the main unit is powered off.
