    JandyStealth 2.5 2 speed replacement

    Pump is in the shop, would not turn on. When powered on the pump would make a humming sound for 3 secs then shut off. The impeller turns freely. I am getting prepared for when they tell me I have to replace the motor. My biggest issue is that my pump on low was barely maintaining the pool due...

    I just bought a CircuPool RJ45 and had it for two weeks which means not much at this point. I can only tell you my thinking process. I narrowed down my selection to the Compupool SC48, CircuPool RJ45 and Aquarite40. - CircuPool and CompuPool are made by same manafacturer. Reviews are good on...

    New CircuPool RJ45 Install - Low Salt?

    All, I have the CircuPool RJ45 connected to my timer and my unit has power even when the pump is off. That is to say I do not loose the clock. The screen displays "OFF".(The screen kind of greys out but still visible. I guess you can say the backlight dims.)

    Compupool CPSC36

    I have the CircuPool which is made by the same manafacturer and mine reverses every 12 hours. I do not know if that 12 hours is running time or based on a 24 hour schedule but for 2 days I had the unit at polarity 2 and today roughly the same time it was polarity 1.

    Compupool CPSC36

    I can't see the images. I just installed the CircuPool RJ 45 which is almost the same as the Compupool and have similar questions. My unit came with the bonding lug but I do not see were it goes attached. My case is all plastic except for the metal braket. If I attach the bonding lug to the...

    How to protect wooden patio furniture?

    I just bought two chaise lounges online and the reviews say they are great chairs but they don't weather well. I was thinking of using Thompson Water Seal or some kind of polyurethane. What do you guys recommend? The chairs are some kind of imatation teak and the instructions say to use teak oil...

    Looking to buy a SWG

    Thanks to all, I made my choice. I went with the CircuPool RJ 45. I was not completely ready but there was a special at Discountsaltpool that upgraded the CircuPool 1 model up and it ends Aug 1st and did not want to miss the special. I bought the RJ 30 (1.35 lbs p/day CL) for $799 and they...

    Help to choose SWG

    At 70 CYA normal CL levels are 4-8ppm. Most say it is OK to swim at shock levels which would be 16ppm for a 70 cya level. I personally would not go in over 12ppm but that is just me. Go to and plug in your pool numbers, this is a great tool.

    Looking to buy a SWG

    Sean, Is Davey LTD the same as "CircuPool" on that list? Do you happen to know where to look up their numbers? Bobo, I asked that question in another thread and I think you anwered my question, what is the conversion of SWG lb/per day vs liquid chlorine? If 1 lb of CL gas the same as 1 gallon...

    Ideas on non-climbing Navigator

    There is also a small plastic adjustment screw next to one of the back feet. I don't have the manual handy but the state to try to turn the screw 1 click and test. Don't know if it is left or right. I will try to find the manual.

    Looking to buy a SWG

    I'm ready to pull the trigger on either the CompuPool 36 $598, CircuPool RJ 45 $799 from DiscountSaltPools. Problem is there is conflicting information on their website. THey have the CompuPool with 3 different CL output. They have .92, 1.69 and 1.28 and they state a 3yr Warrenty. I went on the...

    Installing Circupool RJ-45

    I saw thel cable on a website and one end is molded and the other end is just bare wires, can I extend the length of the cable without damiging the unit? 6' is not going to cut it. THe website listed the 15' cable for $93. Has anyone extended their cable?

    Pipe size for CompuPool, CircuPool.

    I went to my pad to see where to mount the SWG and noticed my piping is 2". What size pipe are the SWG in the subject line? What are the consequences if they are smaller than 2" (head loss, etc).

    Installing Circupool RJ-45

    Also, does the design of the CompuPool and CircuPool affect water flow? I notice that all the water flowing to the SWG takes a hard 90 turn going up into the unit, makes another 90 turn through the unit, then another 90 turn to exit the unit and then one last 90 to go to the the return. Other...

    Installing Circupool RJ-45

    I think the cable that goes from the controller to the cell is 6' long. Is that the case with yours?

    Chlorine Output

    Is there a conversion that takes the amount of lbs of chlorine a SWG makes and turns it into chlorine amt in gals (based on %) Example, my pool uses .5 gal of 10.5% chlorine, How much lbs of Chlorine does my SWG has to produce. I am seeing comparisons of SWG rated for 30,000gal and they range...

    Installing Circupool RJ-45

    I'm thinking of purchasing this unit and read the installation part of the manual (Self install) and it stated to plumb the cell after the filter and solar and that the cell needed to be 6' from the panel (cord is 6' long). My pad is very cramped and the only place I have is right after the pump...

    Looking to buy a SWG

    I would of thought the same but I do use less CHlorine when I manually dose. I always thought it was because when I add manually at night when the sun goes down and through the night I have a larger ppm of Chlorine in the pool for a longer time period. Really don't know why.

    Looking to buy a SWG

    Hi guys, I need some advice. I'm looking at the CompuPool CPSC36 or Pool Pilot SC-36 I prefer the better value. I have a few concerns 1. My water temp is usually in the low 90's most of the time. I am not using a solar cover in the Summer so I have a high chlorine demand. About .5 gallon of...

    POOLSKIM connector too big for my 1" pool inlet.

    I have an update. I mentioned that my adapter popped out after a week, well it happened again last week so I went back to Pinch a Penny and talked to the salesperson. Polaris makes a "1.5 expansion connector" part #91008011 which works better. I bought it for around $18 but it is worth it for my...

    What type of grids to get?

    Based on cost and maintenance, I went with the porcelin. I think they are cast iron with porcelin overlay. The original I had lasted 4 years. Costing $34, I can live replacing them every 4 years. S/S was way too expensive and probably would of given me a couple more years for 5 times the cost...

    Finally some rainwater dilution!

    Dman, is this question for the OP or for me? If it is for me, then no, I do not have an autofill and my CYA does not decrease at the same rate as CH. I usually replace less than 4 inches of water per season using my garden hose. This method should be increasing my CH due to evaporation of pool...

    Finally some rainwater dilution!

    I haven't been on the boards lately so please don't bash me for my upcoming comment. I had problems with CH a couple of years ago, new plaster pool so CH went from 200 to 650. I was able to get it down to 450 with partial drains and was content with that 450 number. After a couple of months went...

    What type of grids to get?

    Does the S/S grids scratch and look dull if not taken care of? I have read that the cast iron needs to be seasoned all the time with oil/grease. Does that mean that you have to coat them with oil after each use? Thanks for the replies.

    What type of grids to get?

    I have a Perfectglo S/S grill that I bought at BJ's wholesale which I like but it it beat up and I need to buy new grids, a new burner and new heat deflectors. I believe the grids that came with the unit is steel with porcelin. THat has all flaked off, so I am considering upgrading the parts so...
