    Pentair SWG IC-60 Reads zero salt but FC says otherwise... thermistor p/n? or ideas?

    Thank you! yes SWG is producing just not reading. There is no build up on cell & I clean it faithfully. We did register it - so that is good info too! I like to see the number on my App/reading but I will learn to not obsess about it.

    Pentair SWG IC-60 Reads zero salt but FC says otherwise... thermistor p/n? or ideas?

    My Pentair IC-60 SWG shows zero salt ppm. Taylor test says 3400 lower then I want now & FC is 7 currently higher then needed but with a cover and not home it got up on me. My unit seems to be out of warranty August 2018 - Pentair online warranty says if online purchased unit is 60days, which we...

    Pentair IC40 Cell Issues

    There is a sensor switch (PN 520736 for an IC60 )inside your SWG per Pentair I spoke to them about my unit last week. About $90 and easy install... So could that be bad vs the whole cell? worth a try. I was also told to reset my unit - but the Pool company who installed it came out and...

    IC40 vs IC60: I could use a little help here.

    I have the Easy Touch control panel and the Pentair APP "Screen Logic" & I would do it again!!! Invest in the automation as my friend with his SWG does NOT have the automation and the 20% increments do not allow him to keep a steady FC reading. He is very frustrated that he got a SWG and now is...

    IC60 Installed & Pool Service Tech under warranty replaced with a IC40 Pentair???

    My Pentair IC60 was sold to me in 2014 & has 3 mos warranty left on it. I was told by the Pool company to get the bigger unit was not overkill but longer lasting vs. IC40. The same Pool company that installed it came out to warranty service call it today while we were not home. They did NOT...

    CYA %99-100?; on the market did Clorox take over? What to look for or stay away from?

    The normal stabilizer CYA brand I've bought Kem-Tek looks like it got a shove off the shelf from Clorox products at my home store... So now they advertise for pools & spa's (Clorox Pool&Spa 4-lb Stabilizer Pool Balancer) OR another jug for use with SWG... (Clorox Pool and Spa My Salt Pool...

    Cartridge Filter "DEEP" Cleaning???

    Besides water & hose is there any "deep cleaning" solutions I can make to clean my filters? OR? Ideas: We noticed an oily film over the top of our pool water when we opened the auto cover -cannot pinpoint what it's about or from. The water doesn't feel oily when touched by hand. The mechanics...

    Intellitouch vs Easytouch macro question

    I have the Easy Touch 8, meaning it has 8 options for programs at a push of the button on the wall control panel, or the Quick Touch remote (expensive option & for me not worth the money as it's not waterproof...unless that doesn't matter to you), or the APP for Smart Phones- if you purchase the...

    Intellatouch or no?

    I called Pentair & asked about a DIY on the IC60 SWG & they said if it's not installed by a professional Pentair authorized installation person - you are on your own for there will be no warranty...so with that I went on the search & thru the good people here & lots of calls locally to find the...

    Speed Stir is worth the money!!!

    Speed Stir - how did I live without this??? Only advice - get a second magnetic stir bar to speed up testing for FAS/DPD & SWG's Salt testing (twice as much speed stir fun :whoot:) & if you ever lose it once you will avoid that issue too.
