    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Thank you JamesM and JoyfulNoise! So, what I have noticed is that temp rise is faster ... maybe 4F per hour? I should have created a log previously for comparison purposes, but ... When the heater starts - it starts! Quickly, and runs a bit more, er, robustly? Exhaust is a bit louder. I'm...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Service tech did not adjust - I watched the regulator box unsealed and the installation. I fully understand the engineering required and concept of tolerances, both manufacturing and operations - but this equates to around 20% ... I pulsed the tech yesterday on the pricing - he is standing by...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    If the regulator says it is set to 8”, how could it provide 9.62”? I watched the tech unseal the box.

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    So, quick check this morning - static starts high, but stabilizes at 9.62, then drops to 7.25 when running.

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    OK … so I have two PAL lights (see great sleuthing by Jim, above). Light 1. Discolored screws underneath the clear center cover, outer clear ring still attached, trim ring broken. Works fine. Light 2. Screws are not discolored. Outer clear ring broken and off, trim ring broken. Works fine...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Static was dropping as I was taking photo ... regular is preset at 8" (or at least that is what the label says) ... didn't wait long enough for it to stabilze, perhaps? Will check. After the risers it goes to plastic - at least that is normal for around here. Starts quickly and there is...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    wineform - yeah, I try and not think about how ugly the gas company work is - doesn't leak, though. So, here's status! Hired local gas contractor and watched carefully asking a few questions along the way. Nice fellow who tolerated my questions well :) Photos - Static pressure to heater...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    LED devices are still operating - one looks a bit discolored. Could replace the entire device, or just the covers. Ben from PAL Lighting called and we discussed how to remove the devices and their method for attaching. If I want to completely replace, it is a ridiculous amount of money. The...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    James - you are a great resource - THANK YOU! Will check options - like can I buy replacement lights only. Well, quick check is OEM only for lens and they are inexpensive, but can buy entire replacement kit elsewhere for about $300 - here's the page with the items ... being 12V, not fiber...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    I can't tell what manufacturer or model - 12V, though. May not be a niche, but just the conduit. Took another photo showing the other part that had fallen off ... the clear plastic cap slips over the light itself, and it looks like the white threaded ring keeps the cap in place ... I don't...
