    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    Confirmed that automation is Pentair Easy Touch. The Raypak Heater is a propane R406A-EP-C. I cannot raise the temp above the 104 top limit on the Raypak control panel.

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    I'm 95% certain it is a Pentair Easy Touch. As the spa is getting cooler, the Pentair control confirms that the temperature is decreasing. The spa could be set to 104, but the water temp is only reading 101 and the heater is not producing heat. At this same time, the RayPak heater's display on...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    I bought the house a few months ago so I don't have all the details of the pool and equipment, which were all pre-existing. It is a gunnite pool with attached spa, which is approximately 28k gallons combined. The automation is Pentair. It has a Pentair variable speed pump and DE filter. The...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    The pool is controlled by automation. The water temperature readings are in agreement as it is warming up. However, once it achieves the set temperature is when the delta grows. As you can imagine, it's pretty annoying when you get into it nice and hot, but the heat shuts off and water cools...

    Raypak propane heater has wide temperature swing

    Hi all. I have a Raypak propane heater on my attached spa. I don't know the exact age of the heater as we bought the house this summer. I suspect it is 4+ years old, but only guessing. This issue I have is when I heat up the spa, it comes up to temperature nicely, but once it reaches the desired...

    New Jersey Pool Heater - Has natural gas line but runs heater with propane. Why?

    No easement issue. House was built in 98 and appears to have always had NG. The line into the house is no more than 20’ from either the heater or the above ground propane tanks. My RE agent is continuing to ask the seller the reasoning for the set up. It’s not a deal breaker, but I’d hate to...

    New Jersey Pool Heater - Has natural gas line but runs heater with propane. Why?

    Hello. I am buying a home in South New Jersey that has an inground pool with built-in spa. The house has a natural gas line run to it for heating and other appliances, but it ALSO has two large above ground propane tanks that run the pool/spa heater. I’m trying to understand the logic in having...

    Nicheless LED Light Replacement Options

    I’ve had my Jandy nichless lights replaced almost every 4 months since I bought them two years ago. Fortunately, they have been very good about the replacement process. When I had some replaced this summer, the company that has been installing them said that Jandy was field testing a new version...

    iAqualink Losing Connection When Making Change

    I have been having the same issue for months. Called Jandy a bunch of times. No luck. Even had them replace the iaqualink antenna. Didn’t help. I am convinced it’s a software issue on their end and I hope they figure it out soon. Very annoying. FWIW, I’m using the app on an iPhone X. What device...

    Jandy Lights Cycle each time to get to new color

    There's no way to go directly from one color to another. However, I did find a solution to the cycling every time they turn on. It was really bothering me and I also had the feeling that switching on/off so many times was causing unnecessary wear. The way I solved it was by changing the light...

    Best way to clean calcium from glass tiles on waterfall?

    Does anyone have a recommendation on how to get calcium buildup off of glass tiles that run along a spa with waterfall flow over into the pool? The tiles are smooth and glossy, so I am concerned about using a pumice stone or anything too abrasive. I don’t want to end up with a bunch of fine...

    iAqualink Losing Connection When Making Change

    I have been having this exact same issue for several months now. The folks at Jandy have been helpful but have not yet solved my problem. I am having a company come out next week to work on it. I'll report back. It's not a wi-fi issue, from what I can tell, because the signal strength at the...

    Raypak 85kBTU vs vs Raypak 119kBTU vs Hayward 125kBTU

    When I first got the advice "buy the biggest heat pump you can afford" I thought that sounded really flip and possibly misinformed. However, what I've learned over time is you really can't go wrong going larger with a heat pump. It comes down to how long the heater will need to run to get you...

    Pentair Intellilevel - Feedback?

    I agree. Another creative option I've seen to avoid having the autofill pot and cover in your pool deck is to run the PVC fill line over to somewhere near your equipment pad or other less obtrusive location, and locate the whole assembly there. As long as the run is unobstructed and the mounting...

    LED Nicheless lights incorrect colors

    Are these the Jandy nicheless lights? If so, it's a very common problem. The blue color stops working properly and throws off any color that has a mix of blue in it. Jandy has been very good about replacing them, but I've gone through at least 5 sets in less than two years. My understanding is...

    iAquaLink still down for anyone?

    Figured it out. Had to recycle my router and it came back online. Alls well. - - - Updated - - - It came up when I opened the app on my iPhone.

    iAquaLink still down for anyone?

    My iAqualink automation has been showing offline for the last couple days. I saw a maintenance notice today that said it would be back up by noon or so eastern but it’s 6pm and still down. Nothing has changed with my WiFi or set up otherwise. Just wondering if anyone else still having trouble as...

    Three position valve actuator?

    Success! Found that dip switch 3 was down. Put it up and spillover option apppeared. Adjusted the cam in the return JVA and had to reverse the plugs because they were backward (intake vs return.) It’s perfect now! Thank you!!! -Chad

    Three position valve actuator?

    That makes a lot of sense! I’m looking all over for a spillover mode in iAquaLink but can’t seem to find it. Can anyone suggest where this setting might be located? It’s driving me nuts.

    Three position valve actuator?

    Thanks Jim. The smart JVA looks like a viable option. Dodger, the waterfall is a spa spillover. Not independent feature.

    Three position valve actuator?

    Is there such thing as a valve actuator that can be set for three different positions with iAquaLink automation? I have a pool with a spa and waterfall into the pool. I want to be able to have three settings. One for isolated spa only. One for partial spa and pool split for the waterfall to...

    Dark blue fiberglass Pool with Tanning Ledge, Should I do Bubblers?

    I would definitely suggest blubbers on the shelf, but not the lighted ones. I had them in my original design, but removed them just prior to construction (and glad I did.) Read a lot of experiences from others saying that the lights fail quickly and are not the easiest things to replace. I opted...

    Jandy Color LED nicheless greenish/yellow color showing through.

    I couldn't agree with you more. In hindsight, I'd probably have done all nicheless lights rather than 2 and 2. Not only do they look super streamlined and barely noticeable in the daytime, they cost less than the large lights so you can add more of them and better balance your source of light at...

    Jandy Color LED nicheless greenish/yellow color showing through.

    Hi Erik. I have two of those in my pool, along with two of the full size LED lights. The nicheless ones do put off a small bit of yellowish/green light but it doesn't seem quite as noticeable as what's in your first few pictures and only shows very close to the light. I'll take another look...

    What do I need for pool automation with Jandy equipment?

    Hi Brian. I have a very similar setup to what your building. I built my pool and spa last year with very similar Jandy components. Same filter, same chlorinator, same lights, same automation (well, except the spa control). A couple thoughts... 1. Jandy Nicheless lights: I have two of the exact...
