    What is this pipe?

    Typically, you can install a one-way valve (check valve), or raise the pipe to 4ft above water level. This pipe is too short causing the water to be able to leak out when the spa is off (reverse siphoning itself). Considering your plumbing and filter are above this pipe, gravity works as it...

    Exposed PVC Pipe - Stand/Leg/Holder

    I had not considered this, I had only seen the T in use while it was the stand - (two of them got cut out when installing the salt-cell, full of nasty stuff. This will work if I can't find a good source for the clamp-stands.

    Exposed PVC Pipe - Stand/Leg/Holder

    I am looking for a source or name of the "stand/leg/holder" that can be used for PVC pipe running horizontally above gound, in example where the salt cell is or coming off the heater, to keep it from sagging or if something drops on top of it- keep it from flexing too badly. While I have seen...

    The CircuPool rep I last spoke with, wasn't helpful and didn't offer to complete a warranty - basically kept blaming it on 0volts (instead of 220v, which it is getting) and kept arguing that without listening to the 20 times I explained it was not POWER to the UNIT but Power from the Unit to...

    The RJ60+ has a clear end, and you can see the output. When it is in Reverse Polarity (20~volts and ~ NEGATIVE -7.8amps) it is bubbling and producing. When it is in Normal Polarity as seen above with positive numbers, it does not bubble or make noise at all. I did mention this to the...

    Hi Chris, I watched the unit for about an hour and it would go from 0 on both amps and volts to the readings above, then start over. Im not sure if its the controller or the cell (Im thinking cell but who knows). At this point I just want something that works, so that I can stop...

    No need to be sorry, I try to be as detailed as possible and planned. The original agreement was at 12PPM to turn on the SWG. I hit 12PPM yesterday at 1:15PM. So I flipped the switch for the SWG to on. This turned the SWG on at 100% from 1:15 to 3:00 PM. So not long, ultimately on...

    Chris, this was running through my head as well. Previously I used trichlor to raise cya, so I have to go buy some. I'm going to get the liquid to make it easier. I'm going to allow drift to 12FC, while allowing pump run time to be 12hrs and will cut on the SWG at ~12. If I drift back up...

    4 gallons and the left over of the two probably make a half gallon. I'd have to go back and check, but I still have 4 cases at the supply house that have my name on them until this is cleared and I tell them I need them or don't. They're 5 mins from the house.
