    Jandy Aqualink Z4 cleaner booster interlock?

    Page 11 and 19 Solar may not come up in the menu until you connect a solar temp sensor. Yes, you will need an available aux relay for the solar pump motor and label it solar pump (from the menu labels). Note: You should be able to get away with just diverting the water to the panels by way of...

    Jandy Aqualink Z4 cleaner booster interlock?

    Once you assign the appropriate aux that is wired to the cleaner motor (typically Aux 1) with the "cleaner" label, the lock out(s) will occur. You wont be able to turn on the cleaner manually without the filter on, or when in spa mode. Or while in spillover mode. Page 23...

    Compool lx3800 dimmer relay rly-dim discontinued and need it!

    Since no one has addressed the 800 pound gorilla in the room, i thought i might have a go... Once you get everything up and running, you may want to throw an am meter on those two circuits to make sure that they are not exceeding the amp rating on the relay. Those relays/dimmers failed from too...

    Name that Niche

    If the slot lines up, and you can get the screw started, just measure the fixture length to be sure it will fit. If you go looking for a new fixture, all the manufacturers should provide cut sheets (specs) on their fixture dimensions, to confirm it will fit in the niche.

    pureline led pool light

    Not sure if it is compatible with dimming or color changing features. Manufacturer says to treat it like an incandescent bulb type fixture (simple on and off). A call to the manufacturer would probably answer all your questions about control.

    Name that Niche

    When you re-plaster, the contractor is supposed to chip out around all the fittings so when they apply the new coat, they can feather right up to the fitting edge without an unsightly or obstructive build up of plaster, which, in the case of a light fixture, may cause the fixture to be "tweaked"...

    Sta rite 333 not ignite, no service lights on, new ignitor and afs

    You may still have to take the igniter out to confirm that it is glowing, and not just getting hot. Dont forget to turn the gas off first! FENWAL flashes are like the "no kidding... I could have told you that!" comment after it wont fire. Hi limit switches open when the temp exceeds a preset...

    Raypak 406a Main Ignition Failure Heater keeps cycling

    From viewing the video for the first few seconds, i would say that you are having a ground issue at the pilot assembly. When the heater is off, i wont say cold, but it is cooler than when it is running. When you first start the heater, it is cooler and you have a ground connection good enough...

    Sta rite 333 not ignite, no service lights on, new ignitor and afs

    Thoroughly check wiring. if you are getting the click of the gas valve, all your safety devices have been satisfied, including pressure switch, so it doesn't appear to be a water flow/pressure issue. Knowing that it is a new igniter, they can still fail. Try to fire the heater once then...

    Came home to find an empty pool (Updated: Diagnosis and cure at end)

    A lot of rural areas require the installation of a hydrant line from the pool for fire suppression. Did you have one installed? They would typically be a 3" or a 4" line. If that line were to fail, you could drain the pool completely within the 4 days that you were gone. However, If you had...

    Pentair Intellitouch PANELS

    To clarify, i was referring to part numbers on the board in foil, not a sticker, that denotes a naked board part #. I wouldn't be too worried about having the latest firmware version unless it is real old. most firmware updates fix things that wouldn't impact end users a great deal. (it...

    Pentair Intellitouch PANELS

    Pentair has a part number for EVERYTHING! What you were sold was a kit or bundle. Two or more Pentair parts that get their own part number, that contains several part numbers within that dont necessarily get listed. If you wanted just the board, it would be a different part number (and not the...

    Pentair Intellitouch PANELS

    If you want to save a couple of bucks, go ahead and get it. It will only be an inconvenience after a power outage. You will have to wait about 30 seconds for the system to upload all the settings, etc. to the ICP (indoor control panel). To answer your original question, you will not loose...

    Pentair Intellitouch PANELS

    The only difference is that the service panel loses it's memory when powered down (settings, programming, labels, etc.). This is a very important feature for the service person because you don't want your panel uploading the settings from the previous customers system to another customers...
