    Pentair intellichlor Dead

    I do have an EZ touch with built in power supply. And yes, I’m refering to screen logic. The black wire is on the power supply wire to the SWG. Pentair part #520724. There are four wires. (White/blue/black/red. Black is the burnt wire) I took pictures but I can’t figure out how to make them...

    Pentair intellichlor Dead

    I noticed my Chlorinator led lights weren’t operating. Checked the cell and it seems to be dead. When I opened the EZ touch I noticed the black wire connector to the circuit board was burned. I obviously need to replace the wire, but is there additional problems I should look for so I don’t hook...

    Pentair Whiserflo Pump

    When I'm running both, I split the difference so maybe I do need this size? If I keep this size, what additional things should I do when I replace the motor? For example, are there seals I should replace, etc?

    Pentair Whiserflo Pump

    I always felt it was a little overkill. The waterslide is actually a slide and water fall combo rock feature. You can divert the water equally or to one feature (slide/waterfall). It stands about 6ft tall and the pump is seated behind it out of sight. It draws separately from the main...

    Pentair Whiserflo Pump

    I have a Whisperflo Pump dated from 2007, model number: WFE-8. It's a dedicated pump specifically for a waterslide feature for the pool. I turned it on to filter some water through it. It buzzed for a moment, then it fell silent and it's completely dead now. I'm able to manually rotate impeller...

    Pentair WhisperFlo

    I have a Pentair WhisperFlo (Model No. WFE-8) as a pump. A couple weeks ago when I turned it on, all I heard was buzzing. I quickly turned it off, then back on and it worked perfectly. This past weekend, I turned it on. Again, the buzzing was heard, but before I could turn it off it went dead...

    Pentair Master Temp 400 problems

    Bypass valve was broken. The piece was stuck in a Jandy valve between heater and SWG. Replaced that and the Thermal Regulator. Heater works like a charm! Thanks everyone for their help. I love this website!

    Pentair Master Temp 400 problems

    From what I've been reading, Salt Water Pools and Pentair Master Temps have this problem with regulators frequently. I ordered one and will replace as soon as I get it. Oddly I had a service tech come out last year (5/15) and all he ended up doing was replacing the regulator. Amazing that I have...

    I'm trying to upload pictures to my forum threads, but every time I try, it says I have exceeded my quota by 19.5kb. The original file is 47kb. I pretty say as far as uploading and downloading images so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Pentair Master Temp 400 problems

    I took out the regulator. It seemed a little gummed up, but I've never seen one new so I'm not sure. I can't seem to get a photo small enough in some to attach, but there seems to be a rust color around main part of regulator. Spring is clean and looks fairly new. Is it possible to clean off...

    Pentair Master Temp Spa Problems

    I currently have Spa mode running at 3200. Pool mode is set at 2900 and runs fine. Is there a difference in temp depending on what it's set at? I assume it just heats water at relatively the same temp/rate until it reaches the desired temp. Is that correct? Or does it heat hotter when set at...

    Pentair Master Temp Spa Problems

    I have a Pentair Master Temp that runs normally when heating the pool, but when we run it in spa mode the heater will heat for approximately one minute, then shut off for a minute and reignite for a minute repeating the process indefinitely. The pipes do shake briefly, but I have checked my...

    Plaster Disaster

    I'm thinking to do an acid wash. I'm pretty good about maintaining, but this was how we inherited the pool and it's always bothered me.

    Plaster Disaster

    Water hardness was always an issue so calcium scaling might be the case. Would acid washing restore or just reduce the stains?

    Plaster Disaster

    We inherited a pool when we bought our house and while everything works great, I've always noticed what looked like hard water stains all over the plaster. No matter what brush I used there was nothing that worked to get rid of it or even diminish the definition. I've had to drain the pool and...
