    IntelliConnect review/warnings - Seeking an alternative

    I actually really like the Pentair microbrites. We have multi-color options and preset programs that mix the colors really nice. You can set your light schedules for the entire year if you like. The main thing from what I hear is they are an easy swap so the replacement maint is easy.

    Can you recommend a cleaner for a new guy

    I only ask because I know nothing about cleaners. I brush the sides myself but hate the manual vacuum part. Just looking for a less expensive model for an inground pool with screen enclosure on pebblesheen. I know I dont get the leaves but I do get a lot of micro debris that falls through the...

    Show me your light strings

    The dimmer is a must! it connects directly to the string lights and has a remote with a nice distance. This way you can keep them plugged into an outlet and use the remote to power off and on as well as dimming.

    Drain covers, Skimmer lid covers, in deck umbrella holders, etc

    Not sure if its just our pool builder USFbull or if they are all as unorganized, incompetent and unconcerned with their customers satisfaction, as ours is. I could never recommend our builder to anyone no matter how good the final product looks. The things you are going through are ridiculous...

    Show me your light strings

    Thanks for the ideas. The hangers and hooks cant be used for they must have something to clip on to and there just isnt anything for it attach too. I was just asking to see if there was a standard way in which others were installing their own. I had a bunch of the self tapping screws left over...

    Show me your light strings

    Hey folks this question is specifically for those who have a screened enclosure and have installed string lighting or bistro lights. My wife wants me to put up some string lights along the edge of the screen surrounding the perimeter of the pool. I was wondering how you all installed your...

    Audio Video setup around pool patio

    Not sure a sale means they are going to stop production but who knows. The way I understand it is Sonos partnered with Sonance to get something outdoors and architectural in the walls and ceilings, which Sono's doesn't offer. I am sold on the technology. I even purchased stock in the company...

    Audio Video setup around pool patio

    I really like the package. I put a cheap 55" samsung TV on the wall and hung a Sonos beam from it with the bracket sold separately, then added the Sonance/Sonos amp speaker package. The beam sounds great by itself but when I kick on the Sonance left and right channels it makes the sound pop...

    IntelliConnect review/warnings - Seeking an alternative

    I wanted to chime in with my experience so far. The first time we downloaded the H20 app we had all kinds of issues but when I upgraded to the Pentair home app all has been well. I run the items in my sig with it and while I am still learning and understanding how things operate, it has been...

    Pentair Intelliconnect Server Error... Anyone else?

    I have had this happen but it usually comes back on line before I have to make a call. I have had this system for 3 months now and I have had to call Pentair about once a month. Not always due to the system as much as my learning how to take care of it. Foe example, my lights are on a schedule...

    So just when I thought I was starting to understand things a little better I came across another thing I dont quite understand. The pump should have been off for the day but it was running. When I looked at the app it says running under "pump override". I see that there is a override for the...
