    Pump wiring question...

    And not worry about overpowering (5 Amp vs 20 amp)?

    Pump wiring question...

    Yup. Any more ideas? I believe I need a very strong filter that works at 20A or else something to isolate this part of the circuit.

    Pump wiring question...

    XPF's were wired as follows: Each pump load was wired to red lead of XPF. Black leads from XPF went to breaker. Neutrals from XPF went to neutral bar. I was actually surprised XPF's failed, but then read of similar experience from another person with same Intelliflo/Insteon issues (he had 4...

    Pump wiring question...

    I tried two XPF-20's (that is where I started). That failed. I suppose the Insteon band is not the same as the X-10 and the small difference was the problem. One suggestion I had from someone was to try the XPF and XPNR in series, with the XPNR closer to the pump. The seemed to be XPNR...

    Pump wiring question...

    How would I put it on pump only? The pump has two line leads but no neutral. Would you connect the leads to the pump's breaker? Then what about the neutral?

    Pump wiring question...

    I installed PZZ01 yesterday. I put it in pool house breaker box because there was no room in the other - I could not access the neutral line (it is very short, coming into Jandy box going directly to the neutral bar - no room to run through PZZ01). Ran neutral wire that comes from pool house...

    Pump wiring question...

    I want to block everything from the Jandy box (which has 5 breakers in it - 3 double pole and 2 singles). I want the pool house to sned signal to the rest of the house, but not receive anything from its 70amp breaker that feeds the Jandy box. Biggest problem I have putting PZZ01 in Jandy box is...

    Pump wiring question...

    I have not tried it yet, but I have one sitting beside me - I had some installation questions. It looks to me like the X-10 Pro PZZ01 and the Leviton 6254 are one in the same (I bought the Leviton). It looks like I need to purchase 15 amp breakers to dedicate to the PZZ01/6254. I was going to...

    Pump wiring question...

    My house uses Insteon to control light switches and also for the HVAC control and a few relays (fan motors, garage doors etc). In the last year or two, we developed interference on the lines which corrupts the Insteon and causes many commands to be unread by their intended devices. I have...

    Pump wiring question...

    I have a Jandy controlled pool system that has been up and running for 20 years. We upgraded to an Intelliflo pump about 8 years ago and all worked well until recently. The intelliflo pump is causing electrical "noise" which interferes with my power line electronics in the rest of the house. In...

    Jandy Aquapure 1400 not working

    I have read that document. My situation is not described. I get the power light on. I get no service code. But also no flow light. And no cell on light.

    Jandy Aquapure 1400 not working

    My unit is not making chlorine AND has only the power on (and sometimes reversing) lights on and states wait (cell on, flow, and service lights not on). I am able to read the water temperature and salinity. Cell is probably 6 or more years old. Not sure when the problem started as pool company...

    Jandy RS / variable speed pump and chlorinators offline

    Max 2 devices per RS485. Its a 20 year old system that worked fine until this year - wiring not changed. The 8 button spa control was acting up, going on and off (lights going out, then on). So I disconnected. The one touch pad (all wired) froze at 10:38 PM last night. At 6 AM, the pad...

    Jandy RS / variable speed pump and chlorinators offline

    Re-connected all wires as the problem has gotten worse. The Jandy system now keeps freezing - the keypads lock at a particular time and show a fixed display (say at 8:36 PM). The only fix is to reset the Jandy system by depressing the reset button on the main unit. I have disconnected the spa...

    Jandy system freezes

    My Jandy system started to "freeze" the last 10 days of so. It locks up every few days and the equipment stops working. I must reset the system to get it working again. iAqualink says its online but won't work. Keypads just freeze with the time of incident stuck (like 8:45 PM). Any ideas...
