    What's your current pool temp?

    Mine was a wonderful 91° all on Solar power, even with a bad thunderstorm in the middle of the night. So nice to not have the heater running.

    Heater service light

    Apparently there's a defrost that was on and has an "open". Turned that off since we aren't cooling and heat is working fine.

    Heater service light

    Do we attempt to fix or is there still warranty? I'm guessing per your instructions there's no warranty. We've run it 10 times or so. Just lucky I guess.

    CYA test says zero, but should I add more?

    I'm not help, but just wanted to say I lost all my CYA between September and May. I wasn't testing it those months and we have had tons of rain too. So my fear of CYA never leaving is gone. Lol I've been adding it in small doses because I'm still cautious. TLDR I'm in your situation too

    Heater service light

    It says: Alarm status Low Ambient Temp My interpretation is just that. A heat pump pulls heat from the air. The outside temp is 73°, the water is 84°, the pump is set on 88°. So it's just saying nope there's no heat to pull from the air? Just want to be sure we don't actually need service...

    CYA danger?

    The CDC is now recommending that public pools reduce CYA. "the industry is starting to change about CYA. Some areas are already banning its use. Here’s an interesting article https://www.google.com/amp/s/blog.orendatech.com/cyanuric-acid%3fhs_amp=true I also noticed CYA is a lot more costly...

    Borates wanted

    Several times it says"Before you start on borates, adjust your TA level toward the low end of the appropriate range for your pool type. See the Recommended Levels chart for appropriate levels." I'm guessing borates raise levels. I've read the other threads as well which has lead to my...
