    Acid washing pebble tec

    Hi there! No. It wasn't for that at all. My plaster was fine prior to the acid wash. My pool guy suggested it to "brighten up" the plaster. After so many years, you think that maybe it was once was brighter...but that is likely an illusion. I had a few tiny little rust stains from metal. One...

    Acid washing pebble tec

    The funny thing is that my plaster was fine the way it was. But after a dozen years, it sounded like a good idea to freshen it up. Of course, after the pool was filled, it looked great. Bright and clean. But by the end of the pool season, around August, I think it was, that first weird dark...

    Acid washing pebble tec

    Apparently, he didn't. He claimed to have done acid wash on many other pools, pebble included. But now I wonder. And who knows if they had any problems. He's a very nice young man, not in business a long time, but maybe a little overzealous trying to expand his services. Some of us end up the...

    Acid washing pebble tec

    Hi...and thanks! I explained in my post that my pool guy suggested it to "brighten up" my plaster. He'd been so good with everything else, he was one contractor - maybe the only one - I trusted. Always doing right by me. I went along knowing nothing but what he told me and I had no reason to...

    Acid washing pebble tec

    I am doing research on the effects of acid washing pebble tec. A couple of years ago, my pool guy - who I trusted implicitly - suggested acid washing my pebble tec plaster. He said it would brighten it up. Ok. Sounded good. Well, it appears not. My plaster is now ruined. There is a clear pattern...

    Need Education on Diamond Brite

    Yes...my subject is Diamond Brite. Sorry if I was unclear. But I want to get educated on the product because I will need to replaster due to the failed acid wash. But I also want to know more about acid washing pebble finish. I'm not asking bc I want to do it again - heck no - I'm asking bc I...

    Need Education on Diamond Brite

    Howdy. Looking to replaster. My pool guy acid washed my pebble tec & destroyed it. Word to the wise: DON'T ACID WASH PEBBLE TEC...even if done properly, so I've heard, it can cause damage. I am beside myself. Seriously sick over this. My plaster was in excellent condition. My pool guy suggested...

    It's 36" before the top part, so yes, the top and the vent add about 4".

    Thank you for that! Mine is def not the LoNOx. Which I didn't think it was. But the instructions for the board were very confusing regarding the model numbers. And my unit isn't 4 feet tall as was previously stated. I think they might have goofed on the board instruction page that pertained to...

    Ok...so.........I DID IT!!!!!!! :) :) :) It wasn't the half hour job a lot of folks said it was...because I wasn't sure about the tab. And it was VERY hard to get the plugs off the pins. Yikes. I had to slowly pry that big one off, took a little doin. So because I wasn't sure about the tab, and...

    Hang on! I just measured the height. It’s 36” not counting the top piece & vent. So now I’m really confused.

    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    I'm praying that removing the LoNox tab is the right thing to do. My manual says Atmopheric Models P-R185B - P-R405B and C-R185B - P-R405B then it lists the LoNOx models, same numbers but ending in BL. Somebody posted earlier that a LoNOx is 3 feet high with a blower and atmopheric is 4 feet...

    That's good to know. I PRAY this goes well. It appears that all comments are positive, didn't see anyone cite difficulties. I'll be getting the board tomorrow, hoping early enuf to install it. Getting company Friday and wanted to throw a little heat on things. So it'll be a tight squeeze. Will...

    Called Sunplay...STILL NO WORD ON DELIVERY. He said I would not get it by Friday, for certain. CANCEL! Bought it thru Amazon. Had to do what I had to do. Now I pray it gets here early in the day, have dinner plans Thursday eve and company coming on Friday. From the looks of it, reading others'...

    I'm calling Sunplay again right now...I might go ahead and cancel and buy the other one. I don't generally shop Amazon...but I'm also not a fool who cuts off his nose to spite his face. Thanks for the link! :)

    UPDATE: STILL WAITING FOR MY BOARD. I ordered it on the 9th. They say 5-7 days. It's now 11 days. I called last week, they said 2 more days at most. Today they said there is a 6 day delay at the NJ warehouse...which they've known about. I am not a happy camper. The guy tried to make me feel...

    I ended up buying from Sunplay. The link you sent. It was the best price for a new unit. I'm not taking any chances with a used one. I call Raypak to double check the warranty which is a year. The guy was saying if that board goes (being new) then you have other issues. I also have 60 days to...

    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    I didn't buy it. I was just looking. Bc it was new, open box for $150ish. I'm glad I ran it by you. He hadn't answered me yet so I can't say he lied. He has a no questioned asked 30 day retrun so it would be really stupid for him to sell me something I don't need. Not only that, I'd give him a...

    Yes, I can only turn on the heater when the pump is on. I always turn breakers off anyway, there's one right there on my electric panel by the pool equip. I'm looking for a board. I know you said that the one you linked is a newer model. So therefore a different model number. I saw one on eBay...

    Oh my. How funny. We went full circle from board to board. That's why the few posts I came across by folks with the same exact problem replaced their boards and problem solved. I certainly have a better understanding of how this all works now. Better. Not great. lol Ok, so a board it is. I will...

    OHHHH. No wonder. It looked like you edited it early this AM, but I wasn't sure what had happened. Well, that's a relief. Cuz I was going nuts trying to find FENWAL... lol So what does this mean now? I guess FENWAL is ruled out entirely. Do you think it would be crazy to try the board? It...

    You wrote (couldn't find it here so I copied it from the email notification): Couple of things You can have good flow through the SYSTEM, but have a problem with how the water is flowing through the heater. Without getting too involved, all the water that enters the heater does not make it to...

    First off, you have been a HUGE help. Are you kidding? What I learned alone here is of great value. I am a do-it-yourselfer from a fix-it family. I got a late start (cuz girls didn't do that stuff) but I will try to fix anything within reason. So I am very grateful! Thank you! Ok, so... I...

    Raypak RP2100 shuts off

    I put the sensor back in (is that what you had meant for me to do, let the actual sensor hang?) and everything was working fine for as long as I could stand there. It was getting dark. So around 20 minutes. But before I did that, I also disconnected the sensor from the board just in case that is...

    Hi there and thanks for the input. I don't have a sticker. My panel looks similar to yours but not my digital read out, so maybe yours is newer? I looked everywhere on it and found nothing. But it is about 40" tall and doesn't have a blower.
