    Algae inside Pentair MicroBrite light?

    I'll try that tomorrow. Did you have water intrusion into the Globrite or was it an internal failure?

    Algae inside Pentair MicroBrite light?

    Yes, the light works. I would think a MicroBrite would be made of rust-proof materials. :unsure:

    Algae inside Pentair MicroBrite light?

    Looks like I might have algae or dirt inside one of my MicroBrite lights. From what I understand, these are sealed units, so I'm not sure how water got behind the light lens. Any ideas?

    IntelliFlo VSF issues

    The handle on the 3-way diverter valve after your filter needs to be adjusted so all the flow goes to the heat pump (it's restricting flow as depicted in your photo).

    New Build - Houston, TX (Heights) - Pergola and Turf (most of it!!)

    AquaCal heat pump causes IntelliFlo pump to shut off

    I don't know. Maybe before the compressor comes up to full speed it sends a query to ensure the pump is primed and operating. Tested everything again today and it all works as it should.

    AquaCal heat pump causes IntelliFlo pump to shut off

    I think I have it fixed. I checked for error codes on the pump display (there were none). While I had the IntelliFlo disconnected from IntelliCenter, I checked the "Priming" setting and it had somehow reverted to "Enabled". The "Priming" setting caused me problems before (IntelliCenter...

    AquaCal heat pump causes IntelliFlo pump to shut off

    Update: Tried disabling automation and operating in standalone mode. Same problem appears where the IntelliFlo shuts off when the compressor reaches its operating speed. So, I don't think this is an automation/IntelliCenter issue.

    Is there a salt that’s better than others?

    Home Depot sells Diamond Crystal Solar Naturals. It's perfect for your SWG and inexpensive.
