    Need help setting up new remote for Pentair EasyTouch.

    I think I figured it out. Seems it was just a matter of renaming the circuits in settings. Oooops double posted.

    Need help setting up new remote for Pentair EasyTouch.

    I have another question about my new remote. The following is copied from the user manual: “SPA (Hi-T) or POOL (LO-T) : Displays when the Spa/HI-T or Pool/LO-T button is pressed to rotate valve actuators and activate the filter pump and heater. This line on the screen is blank when no spa or...

    Kudos and many thanks to Ogdento! He walked me through installing the antenna and everything is up and running! Couldn’t have done it without him.

    Admitting my confusion

    Somehow, this year, I got confused over combined chlorine and total chlorine. In my mind they were the same thing. I’ve been fighting a battle that had no basis. Reading out here finally woke me up. Hey, I’m no chemist. And a lot of this goes over my head. I’ve had my pool for 8 years...

    As if...grandson with fish tank out of balance

    Yes, as if I weren’t having enough water problems with the pool. Little cloudy, combined chlorine too high. Cya too low. ph fluctuating...etc. etc. And my grandson decides he wants a 20 gal aquarium. We have been trying to balance that water for over a month! And I keep getting confused...

    Yes, it’s the new one. So, if I get a new/compatible antenna, should that work?

    Yep...one is an P4HEASYTOUCH and the new one is an “A”. Guess that answers that. Thanks everyone.

    Need help setting up new remote for Pentair EasyTouch.

    I'm only trying to use one remote...the new one...and it won't find the wireless address. I only set the old one back up to see if there was a bigger issue. Are you saying the new remote operates on a different frequency than the main panel? My old remote was version 2090. The new remote is...

    Need help setting up new remote for Pentair EasyTouch.

    Thanks...sadly, that’s what I’ve been doing...and it just keeps sending and searching. I put the batteries back in the old remote, went through the same procedure and it found the address in seconds. The only reason I bought a new remote is because the old one has a blacked out spot on the...

    Need help setting up new remote for Pentair EasyTouch.

    The new remote does not find the wireless address...it just keeps searching. The main panel displays “sending address.” I’ve tried rebooting the panel by cutting off the power to the pool at the house. And I’ve taken the batteries out of the old remote Any suggestions?

    Pentair Easy Touch Remote display going bad

    . I’ve had my easy touch remote for about 6 years. Today there was a burned looking spot at the bottom of the display screen. It still works, but wonder what is happening and would like to stop it before it gets worse. Going to change batteries as a starter. Any thoughts are welcome!

    Raypak vs Jandy jxi heater

    Thank you for your input. Decision made...Raypak it is. Our pool stays really well balanced...knock on wood. I’m a little disappointed in the heater only lasting 7 years. It appears to be in pretty good shape, but after replacing several parts, which I will now remove and keep as backup for...

    Raypak vs Jandy jxi heater

    We’ve decided to replace our failing heater. I’m trying to decide whether to go back with what I have...Raypak 406A, using the cupronickel this time, or changing to a Jandy jxi. Any thoughts?

    Raypak 406A Problem. Stumped

    Thanks! I’m inclined to agree with you. Now I’m trying to decide whether to try one more part (the control board) or just go ahead and replace the heater. Decisions, decisions!

    Raypak 406A Problem. Stumped

    It’s a free-form, about 20 x 40, pebbletech, with attached spa. There are eyeballs in the returns. Not sure about the length of the return line. The equipment is about 15’ from the pool...level ground. Heater worked fine for 5+ years.

    Raypak 406A Problem. Stumped

    Well, it didn't appear there was a problem with the connections. The error code is still PRS. Filter and pump basket are clean. What else could be clogged up to cause low pressure? Since the pilot did light manually and ran for a while and then the heater shut off again with the PRS error...

    Raypak 406A Problem. Stumped

    We have a Raypak 406A, about 6 years old. Had intermittent problems last year with it not firing up or not bringing the water up to the desired temperature. Problems started again. After igniting once and not bringing the temperature up to desired level, it just stopped igniting. Error code...

    Replacing pool heater...looking for recommendations

    It’s been several things. Not igniting. Not staying lit until desired temperature is reached. Currently it’s both of those things ... hit or miss. I may try replacing the gas valve, which was sticking last summer.

    Replacing pool heater...looking for recommendations

    I currently have a Rheem natural gas heater which is about 6 years old. Had quite a few problems last year and it looks like they’re continuing, so I’ve decided to bite the bullet and replace it. I’m going back with natural gas, but would love any suggestions on brand.

    Question about pressure side pool cleaners

    I don’t think it’s doing that. the second the auxiliary pump comes on, if I don’t have it attached it sounds horrible...and it’s on the return side, not the suction side.

    Question about pressure side pool cleaners

    I have a Polaris Kreepy Krauley. Love it..works fine...been using it for 6 years. My question is this: The connection is under water, so why does it sound like the pump is running dry when it comes on and the hose is not attached. I have jumped out of my chair one time too many when this has...
