    Is it safe to turn on my pool pump? (Electrical issue)

    Thanks for the response. I believe the place where the bonding wire connects to the pool pump is what broke.

    Is it safe to turn on my pool pump? (Electrical issue)

    The date on the pump is 11/26/2018. I have emailed Pentair to see if it's under warranty. Thanks for all the help! Aaron

    Something Broke off my Pentair Dynamo Pump...

    No I don't lubricate the gasket every time I take it off and yes I only hand tighten the cover. Thank you for the tip about leaving the pump running when it's going to drop below freezing. I'll start doing that. Thanks Aaron

    Something Broke off my Pentair Dynamo Pump...

    Thank you! Do you think it broke from the water freezing and expanding in the strainer? Or from something else? I want to avoid it breaking in the future. My pool is less than two years old.

    Can't Get Flow Light to Turn Green (iChlor 15)

    Hey everyone! Figured it out thanks to you all. I looked into the pump strainer and it was crazy clogged. Cleaned that out and I started the pump back and waited about a minute and the returns were strong with water flow and didn't have any air bubbles in them. I believe the first time I...
