    Screenlogic protocol adapter issues

    How far away is the outside antenna from the inside adapter? Pentair is going to tell you that they should be as close as possible. I had the same issue, after I moved everything so the outside and inside antennas were less than 10' apart it started working correctly.

    We bought 2 of those umbrellas, it's a Crud shoot, one has a steel pole (9'), the other is aluminum (11'). Steel one definitely started to rusting after a few uses (removed each night), aluminum doesn't rust.

    We bought a 5 foot stainless steel pole. The normal patio table umbrella poles were too short for the tanning ledge.

    Pentair alexa skill is back!

    It needs to be pulled down, the new app can't authorize on the Pentair side, they are denying the Amazon connection. You also now have to ask Alexa to connect to "Pentair Chat" which is dumb.

    Dolphin M600. Is this the BEST?

    The 600 is a nice robot, but Maytronics warranty is about worthless if you have an issue.

    Pentair Controller Selection ... EasyTouch, IntelliConnect, IntelliTouch, IntelliCenter, SunTouch, etc ...

    Save yourself the $700 for the ET8, get an ET4 and buy a 1K resistor and solder it in R41 and you will have an ET8...
