    Upgrading to iAqualink

    Ebay isn't the only bet, but it's probably the cheapest - search for "iq20-rs" on the web, and there are a couple of retailers who will sell you the kit. I needed the whole kit as the PDA panel firmware would have required a hardware and software upgrade. (And since Jandy is not so good with...

    Upgrading to iAqualink

    So just finished this upgrade - couple of pointers. 1) connect it to a access point with limited / no internet filtering - I connected this to a pretty locked up network and it wouldn't talk with the iaqualink server side. (Nothing crazy - but I don't serve add trackers /cookie services, etc...

    Upgrading to iAqualink

    I've been looking pretty hard core at this and have a similar panel. Mine was installed in 2006 so looking at an iq20-rs which is a full upgrade with wifi on a ps pda setup. Looks like it's a whole board swap. I believe the 20 is a rev over the 900 which supports > 802.11a/b bands (which are...

    Model - Jandy SHPM 2.5 replacement options - Intelliflow or Jandy VS

    Before and after - the last 90 going into the return after the nature 2 was the one that busted - was happy to take it out. After discovering it here here - my family has always been a big fan of the borax for water feel and sparkle, and never saw one of the nature 2 things before - one less...

    Model - Jandy SHPM 2.5 replacement options - Intelliflow or Jandy VS

    All done - ended up with a Hayward Progrid DE6020, and the Intellflow VS 11028 - all worked pretty much out of the box. The hardest part was chiseling off an old 90 and ended up cracking after the intellflow hit prime. (It was just like the Curly plumbing in the 3 stooges episode from the 90 on...

    Model - Jandy SHPM 2.5 replacement options - Intelliflow or Jandy VS

    Thanks guys - I'll start doing my planning for the wiring for the 011028 - it takes a bit to tear these projects into the right bit and pieces. I enjoy having a bit of a side project, and have always been handy with plumbing and electrical (esp with the support of the folks here in...

    Model - Jandy SHPM 2.5 replacement options - Intelliflow or Jandy VS

    Hi - I'm planning a replacement for a a Jandy single speed stealth 2.5, for power savings and quiet. The setup currently have an aqualink rs ps pda based panel. I'm considering upgrading that to the iq-20, but for now - want to get the benefits of the longer pool run time at the lower pressure...

    Jandy Del60 - bulkhead nut cracked when I screwed it in - getting a new one - silicone on internal side off inlet / outlet elbows?

    I tried to just reuse the bulkhead orings and retighten (don't do this) with the big ole pipe wrench but the orings were too flattened, and I eventually split the threads on the bulkhead here it screws into the inside the tank elbows thank goodness I didn't injure the inlet or outlet elbows...

    Jandy DE 60 - small return leak del60 - o-rings and jandy r40 sized led replacement light bulb

    Hi All - have a slow drip on the bottom filter connector and looks like it's the filter outlet - as I look at the parts diagram, and looks like a couple of o rings which shouldn't be too bad, any concerns and any tools besides a strap wrench to take off and retighten? Also - any led...

    Moving ... from Newark, DE to Allen, TX - any pointers for a Texas pool owner?

    GO HENS! (and will be on the watch for critters in the suburbs of Allen, TX) :) Thanks all - I'll post pump pictures tomorrow after settlement- it's a jandy pump / pebbletech setup with a nature 2 mineral thingy that I"m gonna cut out as soon as I get my toolbox, and then convert it to...

    Moving ... from Newark, DE to Allen, TX - any pointers for a Texas pool owner?

    wastage is my name for the loss of the water bag due to freezing in the winter - or just from handling at opening :) Love that no closing - saves a lot of effort, and will be pretty to look at over the winter months. -Adrian

    Moving ... from Newark, DE to Allen, TX - any pointers for a Texas pool owner?

    Hi Everyone - I'm moving from the Northeast to Dallas, and changing from a vinyl 28k to a pebbletec 35k (no idea on volume really) - challenges in the northeast were 1) full sun algae - responded well to borax, brushing and chlorine 2) opening / closing leaf load (mostly just due to wet leaves...

    My New PentairSuperflo VS

    Just to add to this for you - congrats on the variable speed, you won't be disappointed- I run at about 1500RPM for 2 hours / day to skim, and then 750RPM 24/7. Pump costs went from about 3-4$ / day running 8-12 hours at full speed to about $1 / day on average. (This is not measured but...
