    Burning through chlorine

    I did the SLAM after. Is this a new acronym for here? I’ve been on here off and on for years but don’t recall it being called this??? I’m about 4 days into the process. Does it usually take this long?

    Burning through chlorine

    Hi! I’ve had a few patches of yellow algae over the last few weeks. They scrubbed up with no problem. I’m in the process of super chlorinating (liquid 10%) the pool to wipe it out. The pool looks great but I’m burning through chlorine. Going from a 20ppm to 2.5ppm. I have scrubbed the pool and...

    Adding JVA to water feature

    The handle isn’t on it but I don’t believe so. I will double check to be sure. This JVA is supposed to be full open or close.

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Maybe the better question is: Can I add a JVA valve to an open Aux port?

    Adding JVA to water feature

    PoolGate, thanks for the reply. What would your suggestion be for the proper way to physically wire and program the valve for my deckjets?

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Thanks Dodger. I tried that but no luck. I assigned the cleaner port to Aux 6 in the JVA menu. I went into the Aux menu and renamed it to “deck jets.” Just to be clear, I don’t have anything plugged physically into the Aux 6 port? The JVA is plugged into the cleaner port.

    Adding JVA to water feature

    Hello, I recently upgraded my controller to the iAqualink system. Easy upgrade and everything works right out of the gate with the exception of one JVA valve. I’m having trouble setting up one of my water features. Aux 1 - activates secondary pump and sheer descent. I need to activate a JVA...

    Question on upgrading from PDA to iAqualink

    I have the Aqualink PDA system which I have it set to control my pool, spa, heater, lights, waterfall, deck jets and gas fire feature. If I upgrade to the iAqualink, will I have to reprogram all the features and valves? I’m guessing yes since it will require changing the board...at least I think...

    Spa refurbish advice

    We are ready to start tackling our buried spa (courtesy of the previous owner). From what I can gather, they just cut the pipes at the equipment pad and left them buried. The spa is just filled with rocks and dirt, then added concrete on top. Since its not a spill over spa, what is...

    Mine quit working after only being installed a month. Thanks for the info and link to order the switches. Mine just went out so hopefully this works! Edit 6/24/17: it worked! Thank you!

    Installed Pentair's IntelliPH

    I'm thinking of getting the IntelliPH as well. Do you control it through your EasyTouch system? Or is it stand alone? I like how you used an actual T instead of the saddle clamp. Do I only need one or two? Are there separate probes for injection of acid versus checking chemistry?

    It works! Changed everything to Feature 1 and must have solved the problem. Thank you Jim and GDN for the help!

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    There is no change from hitting the Aux1. The pump continues at the same speed. Nothing happens when I push the button. The pump speed doesn't change and the valve doesn't move. - - - Updated - - - Is there an easier way to set a function to activate the valve and schedule it? At this point...

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Hi Jim, Thanks for catching those errors. I made the changes but still not getting the actuator to turn though the panel command? Pentair has made this a very frustrating process. I appreciate the help!

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Yes, the valve will change positions if I manually toggle the switch. Thank you for the suggestion. Let me power down and try changing the position of the actuator plug into the AUX A port. Also, I don't have a spa remote or a spa.

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Thank you for the link! For some reason, I only noticed the Windows version originally. I have updated the protocol adapter to the latest s/w too. I must still be missing something? When I click the Aux1 button, nothing changes. Below are the screen captures of what I did. Do you see what I'm...

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Thanks for the quick reply Jim. Sorry, I meant program the EasyTouch. I'm using the ET for all programming functions. I have ScreenLogic for my iphone but I'm not finding it any easier to use than the ET menu. I can't seem to find the program to download to my macbook. There doesn't seem to be...

    EasyTouch 8 - valve programming

    Hi, I've read the manual and watched many youtube videos without finding what I need. I have a pool only, no spa. I have a 3-way valve going into the pump that switches from skimmer to wall suction (currently hooked to my suction creaper). I have installed the actuator on this valve. I need...

    EasyTouch Intelliflo IC60 wiring

    Thanks Jim for the response and appreciate the tip on the screenlogic. This is along the lines of what I was thinking. With the setup you mentioned, does the system IC60 know to activate only when the pump is running? Any special programming or does it just know?

    EasyTouch Intelliflo IC60 wiring

    I've searched through the archives but can't seem to find any definitive answer. Hopefully the Jedi Masters can help me. I've had the EasyTouch and Intelliflo VS installed for 3 years+ but ran the pump independently. Now I'm getting the whole system operational. I'm hooking up my IC60 but...

    Polaris ATV power module repair

    After a quick visit to Leslie's, I was told the power module ( 5-5000 ) is not repairable. After a few minutes on the internet, I found out this is not true. How do I know if I need to replace the power module gears ( 5-5050 ) or the reverse clutches ( 5-5040 )? What's the troubleshoot test...

    Intellichem - Intelliph question

    I am using the EasyTouch subpanel to power and run my Intelliflo pump. GOAL: I want to install an Intelliph or Intellichem to integrate w/ my ET to control MA addition to lower PH. I constantly get PH creep even though my Alkalinity is in line. Do I have to run the Intellichlor in order to...

    Pentair EasyTouch Electrical Confusion

    Is there any reason to wire the ET transformer for 120 vs 220 other than to save the breaker space in the panel?

    Help: EasyTouch - IntelliFlo connection

    jerryt: Yes, I have the load center so that's what I thought. Thanks for confirming! From what I'm reading, if I add in my IC60, then the pump will no longer wire directly to the breaker, right? It would go to the relay, then from the relay to the breaker?

    Help: EasyTouch - IntelliFlo connection

    I need some help hooking up my IntelliFlo pump to my newly installed EasyTouch. I've had the IntelliFlo for a while but just installed a new EasyTouch panel. I'm lost on how to hook up the wires and the books don't help either. Do I simply wire the L1 and L2 from the pump to the 2-pole 20amp...

    Anyone Tried Sonos' Wireless Speaker System?

    I'll echo what the others have said...awesome stuff. I have a few of the Play5's and a Connect:Amp hard wired to some outdoor Bose 251's. We're very happy and I would buy them again.

    Plaster flaking

    I scheduled time with two plaster companies and the first showed up today. The gentleman I spoke with today, said to do nothing. It would not get worse by leaving it and the cost to repair it wouldn't be worth it. ~500 He said from his experience that I should see other area popping eventually...
