    Raypak 407A: Home warranty? Move AC? DIY? Drop-in?

    OK, that makes a lot of sense now. When using the fireman's switch the temp sensor in the pool automation is used, and the automation system just commands the heater on/off not to a specific temperature (the heater is just set for the max temp). So except for some possible difference in...

    Raypak 407A: Home warranty? Move AC? DIY? Drop-in?

    Thanks for the help. Maybe I'm being overly pessimistic/cautious on this, but the last thing I want is to agree to a non-drop-in replacement and find I missed something. Given the hassle I've had on the warranty I don't really trust their contractor. I called Pentair, and the support agent...

    Raypak 407A: Home warranty? Move AC? DIY? Drop-in?

    Thanks everyone for the help and suggestions. The warranty company's contractor is now proposing a Pentair MasterTemp replacement, likely a 460736. I understand it isn't drop-in and will need mods for water, gas, and electric. I just want to confirm that the temp control from my Jandy AquaLink...

    Raypak 407A: Home warranty? Move AC? DIY? Drop-in?

    There's already a Raypak 407A installed, so assuming Raypak hasn't changed the design I'm reasonably confident I can drop in a new one with the existing hookups. The problem is that it seems Raypak has changed their installer requirements over the past 15 years or else the heater wasn't...

    Raypak 407A: Home warranty? Move AC? DIY? Drop-in?

    We purchased a house last summer, and the vintage 2005 Raypak 407A heater worked for about 4 months before failing. Two sensor connectors are rusted off. There's water seepage, and the burner is broken. We have a 1-year home warranty from the purchase which includes pool coverage, but the...

    Following in my dad's footsteps - I've got a pool now

    I just joined the forum but was already impressed with the information here and what seems to be the answer to my immediate question at Aquarite Intermittent Output I grew up with an in-ground pool in NE Florida, helping my dad with chemicals, brushing, vacuuming, pump repair, etc. I convinced...

    Aquarite Intermittent Output

    @C0d3Sp4c3, I think you get a gold star answering the question I had. My new T-Cell-940 with old AquaRite FW 1.33 controller is only running for 24 minutes lately when I set it for super chlorinate or 100%. 20% of 120 minutes (the cycle time for the old FW) is 24 minutes. Water temperature is...
