    Red and Green light blinking and red flow light on IC-40 (both intermittent)

    If you replace the flow switch and it doesn't help, at least you'll have an extra flow switch which you will eventually need anyway.

    SPA vs POOL

    I think I have a good handle using the TFP methods of maintaining a pool. Is there anything different with a SPA? My neighbor has the SPA and been using Bromine and ozone etc. and having trouble. I'm a Liquid Chlorine and Mauratic Acid guy. Can we just drain it and use the basic TFP procedures?

    Cheap Chinese Variable Speed Pump 1.5HP

    It's still working!!.....The only thing I don't like is that if the power to the whole house cuts out, the pump stays off and needs the start button pushed. Is that the way better pumps operate also?

    Pentair Flow Switch vs. Generic

    I'm not so happy with the Pentair product either. It "seems" like every IC that I run into, the stock flow switch will fail at least once during the life of the Salt Cell.

    Pentair IC 15/40/60

    A neighbor said that his SWG wasn't keeping up and that all the lights on the display were green. He brought it over and when I took off the cover for the flow switch I noticed that someone previously replaced the flow switch. I also noticed that the white wire had come out of the connector.

    SWG vs Chlorine not making sense

    "With regards to longevity of the SWG, is it better to have a shorter total time or a lower percent? I figure one has to be better then the other. I am just not sure which it is". They are equal

    SWG

    I can get my IC 60 to "activate" at 1000 rpm by using 2 needle nose pliers and carefully bending the stainless steel tab 50% closer to the plastic post.
