    First pool Tampa area - Plumbing question

    I don't know, the other bird is looking PRETTY suspicious. The wind just HAPPENS to have knocked over only his buddy?

    Finally Finished! - New Build in Tampa, FL

    I'm in Tampa and went with the attic route (via CSST). Trenching it would go right through our electric service main, fiber optics, and underneath (or around) our AC condenser concrete pad which would have been a pain. As far as safety goes, my thought is that if it's run up and then along the...

    Intellicenter temp sensors not working

    Actually just read through this again and do have a couple of questions. When you say "checked the ohms" for your air sensor, are you saying that the check you did confirmed it also read 100 degrees like intellicenter said? It says you're in Ocala, and I'm more than an hour further south than...

    Intellicenter temp sensors not working

    Not sure if you thought to reach out because of our last intellicenter collaboration or you happened to see my older thread that didn't get much traction about a similar issue with my newly installed solar sensor I was trying to figure out a couple months back! Unfortunately, my problem was...

    Actuator setup for feature plumbing

    Perfect tutorial. This kind of thing should really become a sticky somewhere on TFP because almost every intellicenter owner would really benefit from understanding circuit groups. I rarely see anyone talk about it, but it's gotta be the most useful thing about intellicenter - and PBs seem to...

    Turning on water feature (with a separate VSF pump) toggles the actuators for the other VSF pump

    Right, but Intellicenter stupidly shows A/B actuator ports as AUX-CIRCUITS by default alongside Spa, Pool, and lights - so it's not at all intuitive. Whoever designed Intellicenter just did not think logically through how even a technically inclined person would naturally proceed through the...

    Turning on water feature (with a separate VSF pump) toggles the actuators for the other VSF pump

    Yep pool/spa actuators can't be controlled from AUX-CIRCUITS, so I'm nearly positive it's plugged it into A/B instead of the pool/spa intake/return. Swap that, then go rename the AUX circuit to unused and "don't show" because that's just an unused actuator port. Then follow those previously...

    Turning on water feature (with a separate VSF pump) toggles the actuators for the other VSF pump

    I'm quite sure this is not accurate IF you only have one feature on a dedicated pump with its own suction/return. If you had an actuator on it, the position would just be full open and you'd control the intensity of the feature with the pump speed regardless. In any case, this sounds more like...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    I've had this chemistry page issue since the new app/firmware. Works fine on web. Also, the new app was blazing fast the first few days and has noticeably slowed down to the point of lagging more than the original! 5-10 seconds for local and 10-30 seconds for remote. This is on Cat6 direct to a...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    Oh I didn't think it was a dig at me! I was just reacting "sad" that all of these solutions require more work than they should for such a mature company as Pentair! I don't have homekit as I'm an all android guy, so it's frustrating to not just see better native support for things - I really...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    The alexa skill was still useful, you just had to create "Routines" that are triggered by something you say in English tied to the "Custom Action" feature where you type in whatever you want Alexa to ACT as if you said i.e. Pentair's complicated gibberish. For instance, when I want to vacuum my...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    I ran Cat6 to the panel a few months back because their wifi unit is trash. Since then, local access has been consistently a second or two and remote has been 5 or so seconds. I DEFINITELY want to look into nodejs soon too though actually - I already ran a second cat6 for a raspberry pi. I...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    I found an "okay" simple workaround to the auto disconnect for those on android. I just created a tasker action that launches Intellicenter2 as a new instance each time, replacing the background instance. I then just exported that action as "apk" (an app) so that you can replace the...

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    My understanding is that people just "calibrate" the temperature sensor to read a few degrees warmer than it is - not ideal but it works. It's in the main panel settings outside.

    IntelliCenter 1.064 Firmware and New Mobile App IntelliCenter2

    I do still have a very frustrating issue the same as before on Intellicenter2: If I login (android, S21) and then go to ANY other app for more than a minute or so, the intellicenter2 app loses connection. The worst thing is it takes a full minute or two to realize it before reconnecting (even...
