    Jandy Aqualink RS Power Center Problems

    Thank You. I replaced the fuse and the unit seems to have normal power and everything is working except for the solar valve actuator I previously mentioned. There is no burnt smell around the Solar valve actuator, I took the top off and everything looks brand new. It should look new, it is...

    Well I have went and done it this time! I have a Jandy Aqualink RS 8 controller with an Aqualink RS Power Center My 2 year old Compupool CVA-24 valve was not opening when Solar was activated. It worked fine all last year. I watched the valve, no movement. I switched the toggle switch on the...

    Jandy1400 another bad tri-sensor

    Update: I went ahead and installed a new tri-sensor to get rid of my no-flow problem on my Jandy 1400. This new tri-sensor has the little daughter board on it. It came with wiring adapters to use with new or older units. My unit is 10 years old. Good news, the unit has been working for...

    How much more acid will I need to add with a SWG?

    No Borax, I want to try it buy my wife likes the water the way it is LOL! I keep the CYA at about 70-80. This keeps the sun from buring off so much chlorine and allows the SWG to easily keep up (I have a big pool 20 x 40 feet) With the salt water pool I also keep the chlorine leves...

    pool light

    When I bought my new (used) house with a pool and spa, I had a pool service check out the pool and spa. Spa light and one pool light was out and had him change them. Worked well for a few months, and then both the pool and spa lights would come off and on when in use. After a few months of...

    How much more acid will I need to add with a SWG?

    I have had a SWG for 3 years and the PH does creep up a bit, I might add 1-2 gallons a week in the middle of summer during heavy use. Very little during the winter months when the pool is not in use (still have water in it and I maintain chemicals for most part). So I do buy 4 gallons of...

    Starite sr400na heater problems

    I totally believe you. I could hear what sounded like a blower come on, but did not see the windings spinning. Thank you so much. And you are right about the touchpad, the plastic protective coating just fell off as I was pushing buttons on the touchpad. Not sure if they make a new stick on...

    Starite sr400na heater problems

    I am talking about the combustion blower/fan with the heater. It has the gas line plumbed on one side of it for blowing gas into the unit. Everything I read in the manual or here says it should be running and it is not. The heater fires right up (no fan) and sounds like a normal furnace...

    Starite sr400na heater problems

    Update Feb 11,2013 So I got the new transformer and when I bench tested it, it turns out I checked the voltage for DC not for 24vac. So my old transformer was not bad. OOPS! So I continued through the troubleshooting guide. It said to jumper the firemans switch and then press either the...

    Starite sr400na heater problems

    Update: I spent the day working through the troubleshooting diagrams. Assuming there was a reason my green spa light was not on, the trouble shooting chart led me to check the 24 volt transformer that provides voltage to the control board. I found 120v into the transformer no voltage (should...

    Starite sr400na heater problems

    My Starite SR400NA heater is 10 years old. I bought the house 2 years ago and it has worked flawlessly until just recently. The heater is controlled from my Jandy Cabinet by an Aqualink RS-6. The heater did act up a couple of times before it completely quit responding. On New Years, it was...
