    TFTestkits’ pH meter

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I used one of the two packs of buffer that comes with it to calibrate yesterday. It seemed to be giving me readings that were close to expected. Today, the readings I'm getting from my pool water and tap water are completely out of whack with what I think they...

    TFTestkits’ pH meter

    Can someone describe the proper process for calibrating the pH meter? The instructions that come with the meter leave much to be desired.

    Questioning Pool ownership

    I bought a motorhome. Motorhomes depreciate faster than nearly any manmade object on earth. I bought it because we enjoy it. Same with the pool. Our kids are grown, and we have no grandchildren. It's just for us. If we had kids at home, or grands, I would hesitate even less on putting in a...

    I’m having a senior moment

    I could have sworn I saw something on here that told you how much chlorine a swcg would produce over a 24 hr period. Now I’m coming up with nothing. Did I dream that? I have a Hayward T3.

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    I put the test gauge on both the inlet and manifold gas ports. I’m getting zero on the manifold side when the valve opens. The readings on the inlet side are as shown in this video. You can see what happens when the valve opens and closes. Is this normal? https://youtu.be/9QLPYoTJm_E

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    Thanks Reno, I had toyed with that idea in my head. I’ll give it a shot tomorrow. Nothing to lose I suppose.

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    Thanks for that, James. I thought they came out as a unit. I pulled each out and they are not obstructed in any way. I’m beginning to think I have a fuel problem. My tank is at 50% which should be good I think. Maybe those pressure readings I’ve been taking aren’t what I think they are. A...

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    So here’s where I’m at now. I removed the manifold and blew air into each of the tubes. Buttoned everything back up, tried it, no luck. Then I decided to tear into it and get the burner assembly out for a visual inspection. I’ve got it down to this: I’ve blown more air into the tubes and...

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    I have not done that. That’s a good point, though. I’ll see if I can figure out how to get to them.

    I’ve done that, James. Thank you. They were clear.

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    My tests of the inlet and manifold gas pressures indicate the valve is opening as it should. I’m also getting 24v at the terminals. It seems to open long enough to allow gas to begin entering the chamber, but since it doesn’t fire off, the valve immediately shuts down, which I assume is due to...

    Troubleshooting Hayward H200FDP Heater

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I left that out of my post. I have removed each orifice and checked for obstruction.
