    M600, Marina, and warranties

    All- When I bought my M500 a few years back, I remember hearing/reading that if you didn't buy from a listed Maytronics dealer, you got a 2-year warranty instead of a 3-year. Now that I'm back in the market for an M600, I don't see anything like that as far as I can tell. Is this still a...

    Update: Dig underway!! | New (+1st timer) Pool Build - North DFW

    Do you have a pic of the Sky Blue Treasure you could post? Interested to see the differences side-by-side. Thanks!

    Robots- any alternatives to dragging the cord across decking?

    With 2" PVC shouldn't be a hassle snaking the cord through.

    Robots- any alternatives to dragging the cord across decking?

    Yup- so no outlet in the ground/stub box- it will be continuous cord from the robot, up out of the pool, back down into the skimmer/stub, through the PVC, and up out of ground to the power supply (off the ground). Pool is 35' long, then 8' to the house, and a few feet up off the ground plus a...

    New Build in Dallas

    Finalized the contract this morning; PB got on the phone with his Jandy rep and confirmed that with an RS system board, only the iQ20-A is required for complete web/app control. If I ever have a need for a wall-mounted panel for inside the house for guests, I'll mount an old iPad :)

    Robots- any alternatives to dragging the cord across decking?

    That's really cool. Essentially PB will give me the "poolside" solution, but without the inductive link (which is fine, as the cord from the power supply to the "skimmer"/induction connection point will be through PVC as opposed to buried in the dirt). It would just be a continuous line. I...

    Robots- any alternatives to dragging the cord across decking?

    PB said he'd run a 2" PVC line to a stub/box that would look like another skimmer cover and I'd run the cord thru that, which isn't a bad idea.

    Robots- any alternatives to dragging the cord across decking?

    All- I've got a new pool build in the planning stages; I've had a robot in the past, with the outlet on a wall 8' or so from the pool edge, power supply mounted on the wall, with the cord dragging across the ground/decking to get to the pool. I'm in Dallas, and keep the robot in year-round...

    New Build in Dallas

    @NCMike thanks- that helps a lot as well! The RS-PS12 is the RS system, and jived with what I'm thinking about the remote capabilities (the IQ20-A adds on the wireless).

    New Build in Dallas

    Getting down to the nitty gritty on equipment here. According to this: https://www.jandy.com/-/media/zodiac/global/downloads/sl/sl6458.pdf?force=1 I only need the iQ20-A (wireless adapter) for newer RS and PDA systems. For older systems, I need the iQ20-RS (wireless adapter + card). PB...

    Yes on the clay.

    New Build in Dallas

    PB isn't getting an engineer; they do a lot of work in my part of the city; I'm assuming they're using a conservative set of specs (though I have no clue what counts as conservative); there's a lifetime warranty on the shell (haven't seen a contract yet so need to confirm the verbiage)...

    New Build in Dallas

    This is huge- appreciate it! So, to be sure, I'm going to ask for an RS-P8 system board (single body of water, with max. # of relays), with iAquaLink (for web + mobile app), and a OneTouch panel (which will get mounted either at the pad or inside the house)? Side note, because we don't have a...

    New Build in Dallas

    At whatever I've got available to me at the pad. Apologies, closest thing I've ever had to automation was my Stenner on a timer :) I'm assuming that, thru either the iAqualink phone app, One Touch, or PDA, they all send commands to the "system board" (in my case, an AquaLink PDA-P8). And...

    New Build in Dallas

    Thanks! I will be able to use iAqualink (phone app) with whatever setup they're putting together (I don't have model numbers yet from them- instead, I gave them my own list above). Looks like the One Touch is a mounted panel- the PDA will be more of the "leave it poolside" device and I'd use...
