    Is a VS pump right for my situation?

    since I JUST took these, they might help with your decision - I have Pentair VS pumps and the power savings from SMALL reductions in RPM is significant The VS maxes out at 3400 rpm and lowest usable for us is about 800 rpm but we usually run 1100 or higher just to keep good flow. Here the RPMs...

    Salt Preference

    just bought 400 lbs of Solar naturals at home depot - the price goes down some after 6 bags in the past the salt has been pure white and smaller, about half the bags this time were larger and dirtier looking crystals, the pool was already a little cloudy so it wont hurt my pool but wanted to...

    Spa draws down in spa mode

    well I replaced both JVAs and the check valve, and the issue isn't gone but its better, I hope Also realized that even though the pump pressure wasn't high the filter cartridges were so full they were blocking flow, and causing the heater to make noise and error with a high limit error. The...

    Lights went out and family is coming

    ive seen similar intermittent issues when the wires in the controller get loose or corroded. Here we have ants and they are attracted to the heat or vibration in the controller, at least once a year I have to open the controller box, take of front cover and blow out all the fried ants and ant...

    Spa draws down in spa mode

    Great idea I can turn off the automation and run in manual mode. last year one of the limit switches was broken inside one of the actuators and replacing it was challenging because the case and innards were crispy from the sun and age. And stuff was cracking in the housing. I haven't...

    Spa draws down in spa mode

    The one picture shows it goes past the returns ,. When in pool mode the spa fountain refills the spa. Today I've seen it low twice, it refilled then drained again.

    Spa draws down in spa mode

    I'm guessing that one of the valves is not turning all the way, an alignment issue, that's causing this ? ive attached some images of the plumbing I'm considering just ordering new valves and actuators. Ive "repaired" one of the limit switches in one of the valves already One question is do...

    aquabright worth the money?

    not sure whats fair but I did AB 2 years ago and have added less than 16 oz of acid to my pool since then to manage PH. If my pool didn't leak the chemistry would be VERY stable

    A Request from TFP, and a few updates

    I own and run a couple Forums and know how much work it is. For the casual reader of forums, a forum with over a million posts, 200k members and 3000 users online at once, this site likely runs on a dedicated server, and that likely costs in the hundreds of dollars a month. Its easy to guess...

    Help me save money with our pool pumps

    nice place I'm no expert but you can google and find that if your pump is single speed its using 5-10x the power a VS pump would for less flow Both numbers are guesses but my older pentair VS pumps use 1600 watts or more at full speed and 200 at lower speeds A post here shows 2500 watts at...
