    IC40 installed brand new build w/o dummy cell

    Thx I was thinking the same kinda, I did go ahead and order a dummy cell, for next 3 weeks ( even though I'd imagine start would probably be the best time to have had it) and for winter months. Yes I should probably update my signature! 😉

    IC40 installed brand new build w/o dummy cell

    When pool builder plumbed my pool they installed dummy cell. Well the tech came out to get pumps running (after filling pool for 1st time) and install the screenlogic kit. Well he removed the dummy cell and installed the IC40 on start up. I had assumed they'd install that after they come back...

    Light niche bonding (pics)

    If you really wanted to check. You should be able to take the ground wire at your junction box coming from the niche and ohm it out with the ground wire coming from your bond. I think anything under 1 ohm is considered acceptable.

    Light niche bonding (pics)

    It's a Hayward niche. It does call for a wire but also called for it to be bonded on outside lug but PB says pool is bonded with skimmer that's why niche wasn't bonded.

    Light niche bonding (pics)

    That's the thing as you see in the pics min is not. My pool is bonded through the pool skimmer. So is ground wire on inside still necessary? I've been having issues with installers being lazy so I've been going over their work.

    Light niche bonding (pics)

    My pool being built is being bonded through the skimmer. So the pool light niche is not bonded. Does a ground wire still need to be installed on the inside grounding strip that also attaches to the bonding lug on the outside of the niche? I hope this makes sense.

    Will Pentair 5g light fit into hayward niche?

    Thanks, PB came out yesterday to collect payment and I did ask him about it, he said it'll fit. The reason they used the hayward had something to do with the way the conduit would fit. pentair wouldnt fit unless the dug up more conduit but they could make it work with the hayward.

    Will Pentair 5g light fit into hayward niche?

    Pool builder installed a small light niche which is incorrect one for a Pentair 5g light. I didn't notice until after shotcrete. So they came out and cut wrong light niche out and installed a large light niche. I was watering the repaired shotcrete after they installed a large niche and I took...

    Wrong light niche installed, shotcrete already completed.

    Pool builder includes bluesquare spectrum 360 led light which uses a small light niche. Well I paid and upgraded to pentair 5g light which uses large niche. Shotcrete was on Thursday, I actually went down into pool and while watering shotcrete I noticed they installed small niche. I've heard...

    Gunite tomorrow, high of 111*

    Thanks, for some reason I was thinking gunite was more sensitive vs the plaster stage. That's probably in a few weeks I'm sure temps will be the same or higher :oops:

    Having gunite done tomorrow and the high temp is going to be like 111* here in PHX tomorrow and I'm the 2nd job so probably 11-12ish start time...I'm a little nervous. I'll be on a strict watering schedule for curing.

    Should I make use of these???

    Thx for all the replies on this. I went ahead and purchased the parts to "T" into either suction or return. Still not sure what to do, the pool doesn't get lots debris from trees or anything. If I make them returns will that mess with pump pressure? Running 10psi now.

    Should I make use of these???

    If I make them returns for a total of 3 (already replaced the intex one with the Hayward that came with my skimmer) would the skimmer and the 2 returns fight each other so to speak with having skimmer installed in between the 2?

    Should I make use of these???

    Adding cya sock method.

    When I read toss the sock into the skimmer. Is this the skimmer attached to pump? Do I need to worry about flow restrictions, I'm starting from a 0 CYA... Or do multiple doses with needing so much?

    newer intex pools come with the dual outlets, should i just mount the hayward wall skimmer in between the 2 and plug off the dual outlets??? (where the red square is)

    Let pool settle before installing hayward skimmer?

    Thanks for the replies everyone. In the middle of getting the yard set up. Hopefully this weekend I can start filling up :D
