    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    That's awesome to hear!! Glad they're able to re-flash now. They were beta testing when I was having issues but weren't ready to implement yet.

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    I had purchased from target.com so I returned it at a store and bought another one at Pinch a Penny. They let me see inside the cover first so I knew it would be good.

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Check my last post on page 1. Look at your silver label inside the main cover (the one that you typed or scanned to set it up). If it begins with PNRA1 and yours is doing this, I wouldn't count on Pentair to fix it anytime soon because they said it's a bug in the hardware and it's difficult to...

    Looking to add some automation to my equipment

    EasyTouch should do what you want but I believe you'll need to add ScreenLogic in order to control remotely which is an additional cost. Intellicenter (not to be confused with IntelliConnect) comes with it and is a newer solution.

    Looking to add some automation to my equipment

    If you want to work with Intellichem, valve actuators, etc, I'd suggest an Intellicenter system. Intelliconnect won't do everything you want.

    Injecting liquid chlorine before SWCG

    Ahh gotcha, that makes sense. My bad. Carry on. :) (I use a pump for acid mounted behind the SWCG btw)

    Injecting liquid chlorine before SWCG

    Why do you need to inject chlorine if you have a SWCG? 🤔

    I just remembered I bought the "bad" IntelliConnect via Target.com (Spreetail was the seller on there) so I'm heading to their store to return it for a full refund! :)

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    I was in touch with them - they don't think they can make the fix in the firmware, which is why they can't just push out an update. He stated it's a problem in the WiFi module they're using. I didn't want to wait so I just bought one myself and I will try to get Pentair to buy the other one...

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Yep, exactly this. There's a little label inside the cover of the unit, with a number that you enter into the Pentair Home app during setup. The "bad" ones start with PNRA1 while the "good" ones start with PIF. :) My new IntelliConnect is still running everything perfectly so I'm happy!

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Went to Pinch a Penny today and picked up a new IntelliConnect. We opened the box and checked before purchase and it was not a PNRA1 model, so I purchased and installed and everything is operating normally. So, bottom line is, if you are reading this thread and you have a "PNRA1" device, this...

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Got a reply back from Pentair today. The issue affects all "PNRA1" devices, and it is related to a time sync issue. So my gut was right. Here's their email: I've ordered another IntelliConnect from a different supplier in hopes I get a non-PNRA1 device. I will continue to post updates in order...

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Yeah I'm good with running it 24x7, it's just the cycling that really bothers me. I'm going to keep doing a few tests of manual mode and see if manual mode truly is still cycling or if the one time it happened so far was just a fluke. It's all just really annoying because I spent extra money to...

    Intelliconnect restarts Intelliflo VSF every 15 minutes

    Alrighty... manual mode cycled after 15 minutes. @Jimrahbe what are your thoughts on how this would affect the pump, if I were to allow this to continue until Pentair fixes the IntelliConnect issue? I really appreciate being able to monitor and control the system remotely, but I don't want to...

    Interesting update: if I run a timer instead of a schedule, the pump does not cycle after 15 minutes. I'm going to try manual mode next and will see if that also keeps it from cycling. :) If that works I'll just leave my pump on 24x7.
