    Filter pump keeps turning off! Intellicenter and IntelliFlo. Help!

    Good Day to All, I have a relatively new installiation, but not so new that it's under warranty, I'm afraid. Everything was installed in May 2019.

    Variable Speed or no...

    Just finishing up our 20,000 gallon pool, my pool builder has a single speed pump in the contract… Says it’ll be about $500 to upgrade to variable speed. So the question is this: we enjoy some of the cheapest electricity in the country at 6¢ per kilowatt hour, so from an energy usage standpoint...

    Sparkle Quartz

    First time poster here, but I’ve learned a lot from all of the members, so thank you! I’ve got a 18 x 40 pool that will be ready for plaster in the next couple of weeks… Originally we signed a contract for Sparkle Quartz in Lakeside, with blue plaster. My pool builder just built a pool a couple...
