    Hayward Navigator ultra not moving and not because lack of pressure.

    I thought it was not enough suction but then I used the pressure gauge and pressure is fine. The pods and flaps move like a beast when suspended and I removed the weight on the hose as well thinking the hose is weighing it down. I lift the hose to aid its movement and it moves fast then slows...

    pool light and CGFI issue

    last year my pool light went out and I did not replace it (I have another pool light in the pool on other end and then a spa light). I did not replace it because never really swam at night. This year when I tried to turn on the lights all were not working. I checked the CGFI and the red...

    Plumbing to the multiport valve of filter

    See those three unions (screw on collars) on each of the three pipes leading to the multi port valve? When I buy a new multi-port valve for the purposes of connecting it to the plumbing do I need to just buy the plumbing parts from the valve to the union? It appears with my existing valve that...

    I need a new pool spa pump

    Here is my old pump - it is dedicated soley to the jets in my spa for making the water bubbly. It is dead. It is really old. I want a new pump and wondered if today's smaller and maybe cheaper pumps can do the work this dinosaur did. If you need to recommend an equivalent 2.0HP pump then so...

    alternatives to ortega spring check valves

    I posted a question about waterfall pulp losing priming and I think it is because the end caps to each line had missing springs and check valve housings on each ortega spring check valve housing. It is weird - I bought the house 2 years ago and just noticed that there are no springs or housing...

    Waterfall pump priming problems

    When I turn on the waterfall pump it does not always prime so I open the check valve and stick a hose and add water until it starts filling up and pushes water out then I screw the cap back on before full force o f the water pushes back. I then wait and open the valve slightly to let out air...

    Advice on aqua link conversion upgrade?

    I have been looking at the upgrade possibilities. I currently have the Jandy RS8 and the sticker on the indoor controller says version E. I assume I need the 7092 upgrade part but I am seeing there is the IQ-900 RS upgrade path that allows for me to upgrade the board at the controller and then...

    low pressure with navigator cleaner

    Hi - I switched from a barracuda to a navigator because I find the navigator better at picking up the eucalyptus leaves. I have seen better suction pressure when I backwash the pump and I have checked for the common problems with suction. I do have a rather old 1.5 HP pump. The question I had...

    Upgrade options for aqua link rs8

    My pool spa is controlled by jandy aqua link rs8. I want to buy a variable speed pump like the Intelliflo but I'm concerned about what equipment I need to buy. Obviously my existing controller does not handle variable speeds. I see they sell a circuit board to handle that and it attaches to the...
