    Optimum pump speed when using heater

    I have run my heater with Ecostar pump on full speed, and I haven't seen a bypass problem. I am also running a 500k BTU heater. I am no scientist, but I have to think there is some optimum speed where one achieves max efficiency of the heater and the motor. @chem geek has a good discussion...

    Optimum pump speed when using heater

    Found another ARTICLE that says the faster speed is better. This article deals with solar, but the theory should be similar.

    Optimum pump speed when using heater

    Are there any conclusive studies that have been done with regards to optimum speed to run a variable speed pump when trying to heat a pool or spa? If you know of any please post the link. Slower water through the heater should achieve a higher delta. However, I have no idea if that increase...

    Omnilogic programming help

    I've had an omnilogic for a while. I installed everything, then the local Hayward rep came out and programmed it. I am decent with electronics and tech, but I have always found the omnilogic to be not very intuitive. The intial programming has been fine, until now I want to edit something...

    Thank you Jim R., Cleaned out the impeller a strip from a palm branch was wreaking havoc. Looks like its working now. After an hour most of the leaves have been sucked up.

    Aquavac 500 ds troubles

    I tried calling numerous Hayward Authorized Service Centers, NONE of them work on the Aquavac 500. So I was stuck going back to the original location which was 60 miles away in Los Angeles traffic (that means 90 minutes to 2.25 hours each way). I simply didn't have the time to go back and...

    Who’s Familiar with Hayward Equipment?

    I can't say any other product is better than Hayward, as I haven't the experience, but I would not use Hayward if I were building another pool. I built a pool with all Hayward Equipment about 5 yrs ago. The Omnilogic was fairly new to the market at the time. Every item I used was their top of...

    Dolphin 30i not picking up leaves

    A few weeks ago I purchased a Dolphin 30i. On Friday I put it in the pool. I hvae run it through at least 8 cycles since Friday. I have tried Regular, Floor only, and Ultra Clean modes. I watch it for a few minutes and it moves around the pool. I count about 15 quarter to dollar sized...

    Hayward T-Cell and Omnilogic

    I am going to replace my T Cell 15 with a T Cell 940. This will be the first replacement since pool was built. What procedure needs to be followed with the Omnilogic? How will it know it is a new unit, does it need to know? Thank you

    Dolphin S300i Review

    What do you mean by monolithic unit? Are parts available to consumers if a repair is needed outside of the warranty period?

    HAYWARD AQUAVAC 500 PROBLEMS

    Purchased the Hayward Aquavac 500. It worked fine for 2.5 years. Then it stopped working. Fortunately, was still under warranty. It took them 4 or 5 tries to fix it, each time I had to drive it 60 miles to the service center (and each time I brought it home, it still wouldn't work). A 60...

    Hayward Omnilogic touch screen problem

    Not quite at the 4 year mark and I can no longer calibrate the HAYWARD OMNILOGIC screen. The Omnilogic was definitely NOT worth the money in my opinion. I can't say if other products are better, but having to replace the screen is ridiculous. I use the screen not even once a month. Since my...

    Hayward Ecostar 3400SVP pump Drive Error

    Are there optimum settings for the questions you are asking? Or are you just researching to find possible trends in what is causing the problems? It's absurd for a 1k motor/pump to only last 3 years.

    Does anyone know why these $1k motors are going bad so quickly?

    Hayward Ecostar 3400SVP pump Drive Error

    I was fortunate my two motors that went bad were under warranty. I'm not excited to see what happens in another 3 yrs. Funny how my old pool motor lasted 15 yrs. I bought into the whole Hayward system...controller, heater, etc. The controller is the big thing. Makes it difficult to move...

    Aquavac 500 ds troubles

    Had the same issue wtih Aquavac 500. Fortunately, mine was still under warranty. It took them 4 or 5 tries to fix it, each time I had to drive it 60 miles to the service center (and each time I brought it home, it still wouldn't work). Finally, hayward sent me a new one. Here I am 1 year...

    Omnilogic app not showing diagnostic for chlorinator

    Anyone out there using the Omnilogic to control their pool. In the app when you go to the chlorinator screen you can then select diagnostics. When I select that nothing comes up for me. It used to work fine, not sure when the problem started. I recently updated to Nougat on my Android.

    Hayward Ecostar 3400SVP pump Drive Error

    I'm actually not too fond of gambling. I don't think 3 yrs ago there was much information that buying the top of the line Hayward pool pump was a gamble. Seeing as I also have the omnilogic system controller, it becomes a challenge to switch to something else. Home warranty isn't a bad idea...

    Hayward Ecostar 3400SVP pump Drive Error

    Not sure where you folks are seeing a 4 year warranty. In speaking with two different ppl at Hayward, emailing with a third, and speaking with two authorized service centers ALL of them indicate it's a 3 year warranty. Fortunately, I'm still within the 3 years. Unfortunate that a pool pump...

    Hayward Ecostar 3400SVP pump Drive Error

    I have the dreaded drive error on a pool pump. I called Hayward they said I have to call a local warranty center who they say will then come to the pool and check it out and warranty it if still under warranty. Pump is less than 3 years old. This is ridiculous. This pool has a second pump...

    T-Cell Chlorinator and Hayward Omnilogic

    When you say manually reset, do you mean just put the reminder in the "trash" in the app?

    T-Cell Chlorinator and Hayward Omnilogic

    I get a clean T-Cell alarm/warning every so often from my Omnilogic system. I haven't tracked exactly when it alarms? The alarm is basically a warning that shows on the screen of the app or the main board next to the pool equip. Once the warning goes off it will not dissapear until manually...

    Hayward Omnilogic touch screen problem

    My apologies. I had been meaning to update this thread. I called Hayward Tech Support and they gave me some instructions on how to calibrate the screen. It worked. They mentioned that some screens will not be fixable depending on whether you are able to "touch" the needed spots. Some...

    Omnilogic low voltage output

    There are two low voltage outputs on the Omnilogic (all the way on the left side, on the green bus). Can those be used to power up an LED landscape light or an automatic sprinkler valve? I have tried programming LVR3 and the when I turn it on, I don't see any voltage at the LVR3 terminals...

    Hayward T15 issues

    FC 6 PH 7.8 TA 110 CH 300 CYA 45 Salt 3400 I feel like I have added enough CYA to get it up higher than 45. I believe it should be up around 70 for a salt water outdoor pool. It seems to go up very slowly. Everything I read indicates the CYA only goes away through water replenishment. I am...
