    Heat pump - fan running, not heating

    Thanks all for the help. Got a $12 cap that matched the OEM's specs, popped it in and the heat pump is cranking away beautifully. Phew!

    Heat pump - fan running, not heating

    Looks like this is the OEM replacement: https://www.parts4heating.com/Jandy-R3001203-80-370-Capacitor-p/r3001203.htm But it's $111. I can get a quality 80uF 370 for under $20. Any reason not to go with a generic?

    Heat pump - fan running, not heating

    That's what it says on the cap itself. It's a lot bigger than the one in this link - I'll upload a picture of it tomorrow.

    Heat pump - fan running, not heating

    You were right on about that capacitor. I called up my bro-in-law that knows a lot about hvac systems and he tested the cap (80 uF, big boy), even though it doesn't look bad it's only showing 9.5 when tested. We first thought it was the contactor since it looks like a wire clean burned off of...

    Heat pump - fan running, not heating

    Since I opened my pool this year our mostly trouble-free heat pump (Jandy AE2000T Air Energy 103k BTU HP) has been making me a little nervous because sometimes although the fan kicked on, it was obvious from the temp of the returns as well as my swg's thermometer that it wasn't heating. Turning...

    That's what I'm thinking too - will give it a shot and report back with any updates, hopefully others will share some experiences as well.

    Realistic life of in-ground liner and possibility of using poolborders product to extend?

    Our pool has the original liner, built in 2008. Below the water line it seems great. At and above the water line, it is a little faded, a little stained, and I have a small tear above the water line where the liner has always been awkwardly stretched through an corner. I patched it with a clear...

    How much do you trust pool maintenance services at vacation pools?

    Thanks for the peace of mind. Being a SWG pool owner I had no idea those pucks had both Chlorine and CYA in them. I decided to let them be and am hoping all is well!

    How much do you trust pool maintenance services at vacation pools?

    We rented a house at Myrtle beach with a pool and attached hot tub. I checked the skimmer baskets (there are 4 of them) and each one had large chlorine pucks; three baskets had 1 puck and one of them had 4. We have a large gaggle of very young kids and I was guessing the pool guy dumped more...

    Getting those ladder and railing posts into their respective concrete holes

    Thanks - I took both of your advice, cleaned the holes out (there was a lot of sand in there ... thought maybe it was there on purpose?) and also used the ice water trick. I also took some fine-grit sand paper and got the metal ends of the poles nice and shiny/slick looking, and sprayed them...

    Getting those ladder and railing posts into their respective concrete holes

    I feel dumb for asking this but they say the only stupid question is one that isn't asked... Does anyone have any tricks for getting things like ladders and rails INTO their holes when opening their pool? Each year I spend FOREVER struggling with mine and this year is no different. I what I...
