    Regarding Pentair SolarTouch controllers - what is the purpose of the Solar Hold feature?

    I have a Solar Touch controller, and an Intelliflo pump. When the Solar Touch turns on the heat, it goes into Solar Hold mode, for about 5 min, then turns on the valve. I am not sure I understand the purpose of this feature, as my pump ramps up to speed quickly enough where I would just like...

    Solar heater question with 2 speed pump

    I've been reading on the board here that most 2 speed pumps cannot prime solar panels, but that it may be possible if the pump ran on high, then switched to low? I have an installer scheduled to come out and install 7 FAFCO Sunsaver panels. I have a 2 story house. My pump is a 1.5 HP Jandy...

    Longtime lurker, first time poster. Looking for a solar heater - Orlando FL

    We have a 322 sq ft, 11,400 gallon screened pool. I'm looking to add a solar system to extend the season. I think 5 or 6 panels may be what I need based on what I saw at the Florida Solar Energy Center website. There appears to be many different brands of panels that exist - I think we've...
