    Who is correct? Taylor Salt PPM vs Hayward Chlorinator PPM

    The water temperature is low at night but is currently 68F (The Chicago snow is cooling Georgia). I realize that the cell does not generate below 50F. any education note pointers about the effect of temperature on salt readings, please?

    Who is correct? Taylor Salt PPM vs Hayward Chlorinator PPM

    Gotcha! So pander to the cell and use the K1776 to prevent a real level from going above 4000. Presume when the cell is older and cannot cope at the 4000 real levels - is the point of cell replacement?

    Who is correct? Taylor Salt PPM vs Hayward Chlorinator PPM

    Hayward Prologic PL-P-4 Controller as in my signature . Is the instant reading any use at all as the cell appears to use the average reading before deciding to generate

    Who is correct? Taylor Salt PPM vs Hayward Chlorinator PPM

    ?Thanks for your very helpful comments. The cell did not produce at 2600 and does produce now at 2800 but these levels appear arbitrary and I wonder if that will change just as randomly. So I should bring up/maintain the salt level to the bare minimum just up to ' low end of the salt range'...

    Who is correct? Taylor Salt PPM vs Hayward Chlorinator PPM

    HI, New SWG build 'professionally' retrofitted in February- the cell is vertical with hump side up, followed by the flow switch. I just started the pool last week. I brought up the pool to 3200 PPM tested by the Taylor K-1776 however the Hayward T15 SWP persistently read 2600 PPM. Checke the...

    Pool Panel Wiring Question

    The V green is pretty similar/identical to the Hayward VSP and there may be a hack - I will report back if successful

    Pool Panel Wiring Question

    Its a Hayward PL-PLUS chlorinator with a subpanel - to accommodate the 240 volt breaker for the pump and needs a 120 volt supply with neutral for the control circuit . Had to redo the wires simply for the neutral but that wil come in handy for future electrical yard projects as the subpanel is...

    Pool Panel Wiring Question

    Guys - You are awesome! Makes sense now. Per recommendations: I am going to have a regular breaker at the Main panel and wire up 2 GFCIs at the subpanel - 240 v for the VSP and a separate 120 V for the control circuit. Will report back and once I am organized I will write all this up

    Pool Panel Wiring Question

    Breakers: Siemens 40A GFCI at House Panel & 20 A GFCI at Hayward PL Subpanel Current Wiring: Does this look right? Specifically, with regard to the neutral path: House Panel: Incoming Service Neutral - House Panel Neutral Bar - Pigtail to GFCI-Load Neutral Out to chlorinator subpanel...

    SWCG- Cable routing and sensor mount

    PG13.5 is the right connector

    SWCG- Cable routing and sensor mount

    Thank you. Going by the cable specs I think PG7 is correct. Presume these have the 1/2" NPT threads to screw into the pump

    SWCG- Cable routing and sensor mount

    Thanks - just that the entry hole normally is pretty large. Guess I will just use regular liquid tight conduit.

    SWCG- Cable routing and sensor mount

    Hi Which saddle tee do I use to mount a temperature sensor ( 3/8" drill size hole ) on 1 1/2" PVC. Any tips or build pictures? Which 1/2" NPT strain relief do I use that is narrow enough for the RS485 cable to waterproof it? Can I piggyback it with the 220V cable in the liquid-tight conduit...
