    Pentair Boost-Rite Cycles On and Off

    I finally got around to getting the capacitor kit for this pump and it made no difference. It still starts just fine but shuts down after a few minutes and then starts up again after a minute and continues to repeat. We did have one unusually cool day (mid-60s) where it ran without stopping...

    It's 5 years old and been running without a problem until now.

    Pentair Boost-Rite Cycles On and Off

    As suggested, I put a meter on it while it was running and when it stopped. It still had power. I did notice a 2 volt drop between running (117.5) and not running (119.5). The spec is 115 VAC ± 10%, so I guess that is probably fine. Since I had it opened, I was going to test the cap but...

    Pentair Boost-Rite Cycles On and Off

    HI! I normally run my pressure-side cleaner at night but decided to give it an early start this evening after a pretty good storm dump a bunch of tree debris in the pool. The cleaner started fine but after a few minutes I noticed that it had stopped moving. It started up again after about a...

    Sucking Air Through Waste Port

    Just to follow up, I took the valve apart and found that part of the gasket was damaged. Unfortunately, I picked up the wrong sized spider gasket from my local pool store. I'm sure my problem will be fixed once I get my hands on the right sized gasket. Thanks to Mark for weighing in! Hwy

    Sucking Air Through Waste Port

    Just opened the pool yesterday (we got off to a late start). I was getting ready to backwash the DE filter this morning when I decided to turn the pump back on to check the pressure which I knew was going to be high. (Timer had turned it off at 4am...forgot to disable that.) Ran the pump for...

    Help with removing broken barb from hose

    The barb on the drain valve of my jacuzzi j-375 broke off in the hose and I can't figure out how to pull it out. I prefer to not replace the hose because I can't easily get to the opposite end and I don't have a replacement on hand. There's also not enough slack to cut or trim the hose down...

    Greetings from Northern VA!

    It's an in-ground, plastered pool. My GF thinks it's 35,000 gallons. It's an irregular shape that goes from 3' to 8'. I know I need to figure that out next.

    Can't Figure Out These 3-Way Valves!

    Hi! After maintaining my GF's hot tub over the last year, I volunteered to maintain the in-ground pool this year (other than opening and closing it). I understand the multi-port valve on the DE filter, but there are two 3-way valves that I can't figure out. One of the 3-ways is right before...

    Greetings from Northern VA!

    Hi! Newbie here who has been lurking in the hot tube section for about a year. This site has been an incredible resource in helping me maintain my girlfriend's hot tub, so I decided to graduate to maintaining her pool this year! We just had a service open the pool today and I'm immediately...
