    Pump Replacement

    My SW will not control the new vsp - they want me to get an upgrade kit ~ 850. When I asked if I could buy a different pump and automation they said "Ripping out your existing automation would be a waste and you'd be starting from new and way more expensive. I suggest doing the upgrade kit and...

    Does anyone have experience with the iqpump? Could I use that with my existing automation or is it an either / or? Thx.

    Pump Replacement

    Thanks for the info. I spoke with a Jandy person from Utah and he told me I needed the upgrade kit. I'll check the prices of the Pentair and see if it's less expensive to start from scratch.

    Pump Replacement

    So the 2.7 HP pump is ~ 1,400 but the Jandy IQ20 RS upgrade kit is another $750. At that price, is there a better/less expensive option? Am I saving by upgrading the Jandy automation vice buying new automation and pump from another brand?

    Pump Replacement

    Thanks. I'm really not trying to reconfigure the pool or upgrade the automation. Would the two you recommend - the VSSHP220AUT or the VSSHP270AUT - be drop ins?

    Pump Replacement

    I'm trying to figure out how much flow I need. A 15K gallon pool divided by 1,440 would give me a minimum flow of 10.41 gallons per minute if run for 24 hours. Does anybody actually run their pump for 24 hours. My automation is probably the original automation from when the pool was built -...

    Pump Replacement

    I currently have a Jandy Stealth SHPMP2.0 pool pump. It is an extremely loud - I assume it has bad bearings - single speed pump that I'm looking to replace. The two options I have are the Jandy VSFHP165 which is a 1.65 HP variable speed pump and the Jandy VSPHP270 which is a 2.7 HP variable...

    Pentair Warrior SI

    Thanks for the feedback. I am impressed with the level of cleaning it does. It cleans the pool very well with the exception of the missed spots. Pretty pleased.

    Pentair Warrior SI

    Received my Pentair Warrior SI today - it is a 2018. Ran it through two cycles, standard and quick, after a very windy week. Initial thoughts - it cleans much better than my old Polaris but not as much of the pool as the Polaris. Maybe it's the shape of the pool, but there are definitely areas...

    Few days of below freezing temp. What to do?

    If I lose power for too long, I plan to do the following: 1. Secure power 2. Drain the filter (will backwash work?) 3. Drain pump 4. Drain heater. Is this a necessary step? Do I have to turn off the gas to the heater? Thx!

    Rolling black outs possible NTX

    I'm with you, never drained a pool before. Draining the filter is ready enough, it has a plug on the side. What do you drain on the pump and booster pump?

    Pool Freezer Settings

    My pool only has pool mode on which is the filter pump and the blower.

    Pool Freezer Settings

    Thank you for the manual. I can disable the blower - will water still floor through the spa jets?
