    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    Great idea! I know my hoses are old, and I already had to replace one section. I have a feeling that may be it!

    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    Fairly recently, IIRC in October. I think RPM.

    Aquanaut stopping more and more frequently

    For most of two years, my Aquanaut has happily wandered around the pool, sucking up leaves and debris. Once or twice I had to open it up to remove a pebble or twig. Recently, though, it seems like every time I look at it, it's sitting still. Sometimes raising it up off of the pool floor and...

    Pool pump (not running pump, but draining pump)?

    How long does it take to drain with a garden hose? I saw another Superior with a 1.5" outlet, but can only find a 25' hose. Superior has a PN for a 50' but I can't find it anywhere...

    Pool pump (not running pump, but draining pump)?

    Any recommendations for a pump to drain a pool? Harbor Freight has some, but... it's Harbor Freight.

    Spa, heater, automation, and schedule

    It starts in spillover to dump the leaves and Crud out into the pool. The end of the cycle is running it in spa mode. That's the way the Pentair guy set it up! And it did work. I remember at some point seeing an entry in the manual that referred to a seemingly-relevant setting, but I'll be...

    Spa, heater, automation, and schedule

    Part of my pool schedule is to run the spa for 20 minutes to circulate the water daily. I used to have the heat turned on in the automation system. At some point, I turned it off, because why waste the gas when I'm not using it? But pressing the Spa button still made the heat come on...

    Pump not priming

    I think losing suction at any given position of the vaccum valve was a coincidence. I just tried again, and with that valve open, closed, or any point in between water was NOT running into the pump. I have no idea why water would sometimes run and sometimes not.

    Pump not priming

    That's the valve for my suction vac. It was open, I closed it just in case there was some hideous leak. That didn't help. But I just tried again with it open. Water did start pouring in. Closed it, water continued pouring in. The basket was nearly full and the relief valve on the filter...

    Pump not priming

    I noticed this AM my pump was shutting itself off. It wasn't priming. I cleaned out the skimmer & pump basket, then cleaned the lib and re-lubed the O-ring. For a while, it seemed to be trying to prime, but now I don't see any water being drawn in to the pump at all. The diverter on the...

    Differences between Dolphins?

    So, I found out about robot cleaners here, and am intrigued. I want to maytronicsusa.com to do research, and have questions they seem to be unable/unwilling to help with. A bunch of people here gush about the S200. That's in the "Better" class on their site. So, when I go there, I see...

    How to keep this from happening?

    I'm kind of in love after seeing the video, but spending close to a thousand dollars on a vacuum vs. untangling the hose every now and then? This may get added to the list, but not the top of the list.

    Liquid chlorine hard to find

    Nope. I see pallets of it at Home Depot every time I go. And I go a lot, because I'm using up about two gallons of bleach a week...

    Aeration/pH Drama

    I wish aeration was my issue. My pH is always trying to climb into the 8s. If I leave it for more than a day or two, I'm easily up to 8.3 I'm guessing I use a gallon of acid every three weeks or so. Funny, though, that when pool temp gets over 88 or so, and I leave the aerator running when...

    My app shows mostly zeros!

    I signed out, cleared all cache and storage, signed in, it synched... and still a bunch of zeros. But not everything!

    My app shows mostly zeros!

    Most (not all) of my test and addition history has become zeros in the app (but I can see the data here).

    How do I find the GFCI for my pool light?

    My pool light doesn't work. Spa light does. I hear so many times, "Check the GFCI!"... but I have no idea where it would be.

    How do I find the GFCI for my pool light?

    There is a GFCI outlet below my automation panel, but the only thing plugged in to it is the transformer for the low voltage yard lights.

    What is this light?

    So I got a 79109000 It's way too small. It doesn't even fit in the center glass lens, let alone the metal bezel.
