    Intellitouch indoor control panel not responding control actions

    Hi all, my indoor Intellitouch panel responds to some button presses but not others. I am getting the error retrieving data message when trying to recall data from the central control board and the control actions (turn on spa, lights, etc) don't do anything other than beep when the buttons are...

    Aqua Rite showing zero salt. Generating LED on for several seconds then off. No Power LED

    Hi all, a couple of months ago I put my SWG back in service with a new T-15 cell after several years. It worked very well until this week. Now the display shows 0 salt. When the pump turns on, the Generating LED turns on solid for a few seconds but the Power LED never comes on, then the...

    Sanitizing pains. Tried SWG, Liquidator, chlorine tablets and bleach. Tired of fighting. Need help. Thinking Ozonator

    HELP! Hi all, I have a plaster pool that I am tired of fighting to maintain the FC levels.

    Can't get rid of fine sediment after using hth DE Filter Aid

    I have been recovering my pool from Harvey. During the process, I had to do several backwashes and eventually decided it was better to clean and recharge the filter. I have previously used the DE from Leslie's without any issue. However, since I was at Home Depot I decided to try hth DE Filter...

    How long to clear pool after Harvey?

    My pool (see pic taken 3 days ago) was under a ft of water from the local creek, which was undoubtedly mixed with the wonders of the North Houston storm and sewage overflows. Starting on Wednesday I removed the twigs and branches and other lumps of organics. After 3 days of running the filter...

    Controlling PH upwards creep with balanced chemicals

    Seems to be a common topic but thought I'd ask for a bit of quick advice on keeping PH stable as it typically rises about .3 per day. As a result, I'm adding Muratic every two days to bring it back down from 7.8 to 7.2. The pool water is beautifully clear now. I recently battled a bad case of...

    Brownish stain covering most of pool walls and floor

    Hi all, this is my first post, though I've learned a heck of a lot from this site thus far. I've gotten to know my pool over the last 9 months and have the TF100 to keep chemicals in balance. After returning from 2 weeks away, the chlorine in my pool had reached 0 (my liquidator ran out of...
