    Making the IntelliChlor Work in a mild Winter

    Is it just Pentair’s IntelliChlor that has the cold water shut off feature? Doesn’t Jandy and Hayward’s product do the same thing?

    Possible New Pool In Central FL

    Hey pal, the glass beads both add color as well as texture. I was concerned with the texture of the pebble without beads as my kids have had their feet torn up at a friends pool who has mini pebble and they didn’t have glass beads. I did the beads more for the fact they have no sharp edges like...

    Hey, that looks familiar. Looks good pal. If those weeds are big, I'd pull them. If small, you can use a butane torch on them.

    New Pool build --- Northern California **Quote stage**

    Haaa..Funny guy...Don’t be intimidated by the equipment pal. Once the valve settings are in place (usually set by your builders start up guy / but verify the settings with the forum if you like) and the builder has it up and running, it’s not difficult. First thing to do is learn the different...

    Possible New Pool In Central FL

    Regarding the bubbler...I could be wrong but from what I see, that collar you refer to and that is shown in the directions gets glued in AFTER plaster. That way the lip of the collar rests on top of the plaster. Sounds like the only issue is it not being straight? As far as the gunite, you...

    Thanks...I saw that but didn’t know it works with intellicenter. I had the previous Pentair app before the took it away. I’ll give this a try. Thanks.

    Pentair IntelliCenter - Egg Timers not Working - Am I doing this right?

    For the last few days, everything seems to be working quickly and flawlessly while using the app. I was able to create a schedule for the first time in a long time via the app. Well, hope I didn't jinx it...sorry

    Pentair IntelliCenter - Egg Timers not Working - Am I doing this right?

    IC has been so frustrating lately. Basically, you can’t create timers / schedules on the app from your smart device lately. Try using the website and that may work. That’s how we have been having to set schedules. It seems to save the schedule you create on the website but not the app. I get a...

    Pentair IntelliCenter Review and Information

    AWESOME! In anticipation of their call, maybe blast "Burning heart" by survivor for some motivation. Stay focused pal, eye on the prize. I know you will do us proud!

    What’s this thing??

    Sorry I am no longer at my parents so I don’t have any additional pictures. The pic I added is deceiving. The top of the plug is about 1 1/2” below the lip of the opening. In the edited picture, I added a red line that indicates that opening for the suction line. The opening is just above the...

    Possible New Pool In Central FL

    The closer to the pool the more efficient everything works. The closer to your utilities, the less digging for electrical and gas. When I designed it, I put the equipment in what I thought would be the most secluded area but it could be put pretty much anywhere. I’m not sure whether placing...

    What’s this thing??

    The area forms a "T" just like a fitting for pvc. Right above where the thingy is, is an opening (which you can't see in the picture) which is the suction line for the skimmer

    What’s this thing??

    I think you may be right. Of course, we are in Southern California where it never freezes. Probably just leave it in. Don’t need the drain anyway and maybe it was put there due to a leak in the drain line. Thanks again

    What’s this thing??

    Yeah. They have no idea. Maybe your right cause it does look like a plug.

    What’s this thing??

    There is a main drain but not a wing nut. Looks like a metal loop on top as if you hook something into it to move it. No longer at my parents to check it out more.

    What’s this thing??

    Found this in my parents skimmer. Pool was built in the 70’s. Looks like a 70’s version of a UFO diverter? Any ideas what it is and if it’s a diverter, how to adjust. No issues with the pool. It’s skimming but not sure if the drains are restricted or not. Seems they would be.
