    Polaris VRX iQ+

    i thought that stock Polaris filter was fine. With the option of upgrading to an ultra fine basket if needed?

    Polaris VRX iQ+

    uograded from a P965iQ to VRX iQ+. The VRX has several significant improvements. Was surprised to see Polaris improved upon an already solid, modern model. The VRX has improve navigation. It’s not a gimmick. After only the initial run (smart cycle), it already seems like a game changer. It...

    Polaris VRX iQ+

    Seems the VRX iQ+ gets over the air firmware updates. The P9650iq (previous gen) did not. The VRX iQ+ smart cycle and navigation seem significantly improved over the previous models.

    Using Dolphin Oasis Z5 in an above ground pool?

    Have a spare Dolphin Oasis Z5 pool robot. Was thinking of giving to a relative for their above ground pool. This model cleans the bottom as well as the sides and waterline of an IGP. Could it damage an above ground pool? It always got caught on my drains in the deep end and spun in circles...

    That’s a significant detail. You’ll want to know. It’ll be needed.

    Polaris VRX iQ+

    So I’ve come from a Dolphin Oasis Z5 with treads that constantly perched itself on top of my drains to a Polaris P965iQ (Leslie’s white version) with 3 year warranty, rebate, etc. same as the new VRX-iQ+ without the extra gimmicks to break (blue light, etc.). Anyway, the 4WD Polaris is...

    IC60 Chlorinator: Communication Lost?

    As luck would have it, my IC60 was failing. The service tech was instructed by Pentair to first attempt a flow switch replacement. Once they did that the cell died completely. Fortunately Pentair has agreed to replace the SWCG under warranty. Still the frequent alert behavior and com link errors...

    IC60 Chlorinator: Communication Lost?

    Thanks Jim R. Will be sure to echo back with what I find out. I did not a few older posts on the forum with similar com link errors, however no one ever confirmed back their issue and resolution unfortunately.

    IC60 Chlorinator: Communication Lost?

    Hi - have been running my Pentair EasyTouch, ScreenLogic2 and IC60 SWCG for 3 years now without any real issue. Though last year had my IC60 flow switch replaced under warranty. After reinstalling the IC60 this season (was kept in storage during winter, swapped in dummy cell), there was also no...

    Pentair IntelliCenter Review and Information

    TLDR; seems the new Intellicenter is coming along but still a ways to go. Glad to at least see Pentair trying to evolve their products. The EasyTouch and ScreenLogic 2 are bulletproof. Is there a simple upgrade kit/path for converting existing ET4 panel and ScreenLogic WiFi kit to this in...

    Pentair IntelliCenter

    Exactly. Any new news on this? Has anyone successfully “upgraded” from EasyTouch to Intellicenter? Any info to share?

    Buying teak patio furniture online?

    Has anyone had success doing this? Time has come to replace our aging power coated furniture around SWCG pool with newer furniture. Preferably something more durable and less prone to the elements. Overstock seems to have quite a bit of it with free shipping. How is their quality? Is it real...

    TA raised over the winter - best approach?

    Thank you both. I didn't realize if my CSI was in range, I wouldn't need to push for each, individual number to also be in its respective range. This is great news.

    TA raised over the winter - best approach?

    Hi - this is first year since we've had pool that we've left it open over the winter. While Pool Math app indicates my CSI is acceptable -0.16, my TA has increased to a level it's never hit before (110). Removed SWCG and moved to liquid chlorine, like usual, during the off season. This is...
