    Lowering my CYA without draining water!

    I went behind TFP's back and tried something, something that has been discussed on this forum before and didn't seem like it was very well received. My CYA was high because the pool startup guy put way too much conditioner in before I found TFP. Only thing he did right was add plenty of MA in...

    Screenlogic for Android is terrible!

    Or is it me? I have a Samsung Galaxy S10. The SL interface is a mess. I only say this because I also have a company provided iPhone and I just installed ScreenLogic on it and it's wonderful! Specifically I can't adjust my Intelliflo vsf pump speed from the Android. It just seems like it...

    Trying to get better control of valves from screen logic

    New pool install with Pentair Intelliflo, booster pump and SWG. Right now I have two modes (pool and spa) From what I understand, in spa mode it sucks from spa and returns to spa. I understand this as I wouldn't want heated water going back to pool. However, in pool mode, I thought* it is...

    That new guy in California

    Hey there folks! Just built a new in ground pool with pentair equipment and easytouch / screen logic. Pool contractor has a "usual" pool start up guy but he wouldn't come out to my rural neck of the woods so he found a local guy that would. That turned into a disaster. He didn't do anything he...
