    Globrite LEDs replacement

    I have had 3 LEDs go bad this year. The first 2 were under warranty and the 3rd is not. The PB wants $474 for the light and $150 labor. Yikes. It looks like I can get this on Amazon for $350. Is this something I can do myself or is it best to just have the PB do it.

    Pentair heater not working

    Pool temp is 80 and the heater is set to 86. It turns on and clicks 3-4 times over a 1-2 minutes then shuts off. I can smell gas so there appears to be gas flowing. When it was working a few weeks ago I could hear the heater "fire" now I don't.

    Re-plastered looks bad

    We had to drain our pool this spring and fix several cracks and replaster. Some of the cracks are coming through new plaster and the new plaster is wearing off in high traffic areas revealing the older darker plaster. There is also bubbling of the new plaster in some areas. The pool is only...

    Screenlogic says it is on but it is not warming the pool and it is not making any noise at the actual heater. Any tips or tricks to get it running.

    Easy touch schedule

    Thanks. I actually found why the pool looked like it wasn’t running..... I added DE last night and the sand filter was clogged. Backwashed and now running. Can’t decide if I want to add DE or not. Pool is a little cloudy and I’m starting SLAM again!

    Cloudy pool from filter

    I added DE to the sand filter last night because we have a cloudy pool. I woke up this morning and it didn’t look like any water was flowing. I check the pump and there was air in it so my guess is the small amount of DE that I added was clogging the sand filter. I back washed it and now it’s on...

    Easy touch schedule

    Every time I try to change the schedule it adds “pool 8-5”. My concern is if I add other features for that pump that overlaps the pool being on from 8 to 5 which will it default to. Could you have a setting that has the pump run from 8 AM until 7:59 am the next day and also have several features...

    Cloudy pool from filter

    After adding the floc I circulated for 2 hours on recirc. I then turned off the system for the night (9hours) before I vacuumed this AM. It was hard to see the bottom in the deep end but I didn't see any floc or junk on the bottom.

    Cloudy pool from filter

    We have a cloudy pool despite SLAM. I deep cleaned the sand filter last night and it was very dirty towards the bottom. Not pond looking water but very cloudy. I used floc last night and there wasn't much to vacuum up but the water was still very cloudy. I could barely see the water in the...

    Cloudy pool from filter

    We have an issue with our pool being cloudy for the past month or so. It’s been often on because I have been slamming the pool and doing the overnight test with success. After reading a little bit more today I found out that the filter could be the cause so I closed the valves and I am in the...

    Removing LED to look for algae

    Is there a tutorial on how to remove a pool LED and can this be done easily? I have a chlorine demand problem and I wanted to take a look behind the lights to see if algae is growing there. I believe my lights are pentair.

    Spa LED replacement

    I have searched and can't seem to find out how to remove my burned out bulb in my spa and replace it. Do I need to drain the spa to remove it and does anyone know how to remove the intellibrite bulb. Thanks

    Shocking without bleach

    We have had a few heavy bather loads his week and I am getting a little cloudy water. CYA 80 Cl 4 I have used 5 lbs of dichlorvos but would like to find an alternative as I don’t want my CYA levels to get too high. What’s the best way to shock the pool besides bleach?

    CYA

    I put cyuronic acid in my skimmer baskets using the pantyhose method A week and a half ago. Unfortunately they painted the bottom of my pool the wrong color so I had to drain the pool. I took this cyuronic acid that was in the pantyhose and put it in a bucket in my garage. It sat there for...

    Pump won’t turn off

    I have a 2nd pump to run my features and infloor cleaners. For some reason when i shut the cleaners off tonight the pump still runs sending water down the slide. Then when I turn the patio lights on using ScreenLogic and turn the slide off so must’ve moved the valve. I thought I had all my plugs...

    Lo-T setting

    With the help of Jimrahbe I was able to get my valves working by plugging them into the main board on my easy touch 8. I still have several connections on the board that are not plugged in and I am think I will need to get these plugged in to get my features working? ( pool lights, patio...

    Lo-T setting

    I filled the pool the last 2 days and turned the pool on this am by taking it out of service mode and opening all the valves. I have a spa that has been open all winter. I think the water is all going to where I’d like it to go but I can’t get the screen logic to highlight the “pool” button when...

    Open pool 1st time

    Our pool builder did some crack repairs on our Gunite and plaster. I am refilling the pool and they wanted to come out when it got full to open the pool. I have already plugged in the valves at the EasyTouch and they are working and have power. I have also added Cyuronic acid, muriatic acid...

    Opening and antifreeze

    I am doing a fresh fill of the pool due to some work that needed to be done. The PB closed the pool and used antifreeze. Can i just start the pool in filter mode or do I need to waste some water when I turn the pump on due to the antifreeze?

    Pump RPMs

    Yes, I have a Easytouch 8 and plan on setting schedules once I have repairs done. I also have a robot so I might just not run my infloor cleaners (they just seem to blow stuff around) and run my pump on low for 10 hours at night.

    Pump RPMs

    I have a VS intelliflo pump that circulates my water. Last year I planned on backing off of the 2600 RPMs that the pool builder sets when opening to a lower more cost effective RPM of 1200-1500. We have a spa that overflows into the pool and when the pool worker came out to do some work last...

    Lo-T setting

    The wires were not labeled. I did label them to make it easier for closing next winter. I will attach a picture below it might be hard to follow. Basically I have the spa and three Other pipes going into the variable speed pump. I have three skimmer baskets one in the shallow end, one in the...

    Lo-T setting

    I got all of the valve wires hooked up in the correct position and labeled. The valves work! My next goal is to locate the main drain pipe. There are four pipes that go to the variable speed pump but none of them appear to be the main drain. One of them is the spa and I believe the three others...

    Gunite cracks

    Wow. That looks pricey but I’m sure it would solve our situation. I’m not sure what kind of soil it is built on.

    Gunite cracks

    We installed our pool three years ago and after the first year had significant cracks in the bottom of the pool between each of the in floor cleaners. They just got done repairing the cracks by applying a layer of something over each crack. They then repainted it. I noticed tonight that some of...
