    Check Valve Help

    It’s about 6 feet higher and plumbed with 2in pipe. I checked and the arrow on the valve was pointing in the correct direction. When I put everything together, I jammed a rock in to valve to keep it open. I guess if it’s functioning that I shouldn’t mess with it.

    Check Valve Help

    Hey all, I was trying to backflush some leaves off of my main drain and took apart the front end of the pump. When I removed the check valve, I noticed a rock was lodged in it. I put everything back together and tried several times to get prime and it wouldn’t work. I went up to the hardware...

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    Ok. Makes sense. So the pump can go to the line side of the relay and then run from the relay to the breaker? There is actually a wire going into the extra breaker. It goes to a GFCI receptacle on my post. So right now, my primary control transformer goes to the 240v breaker. Will I need a...

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    On that dual pole GFCI breaker I’ve got the 240v vsf pump (the manual says to wire it directly to the breaker) and I’ve got the primary control transformer on that same breaker.

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    Hey everyone, someone pointed out that my salt water generator was wired directly to the circuit breaker. I disconnected and moved the wires to the filter/pump relay. Does this look correct? Each wire that Goes to the salt transformer is connected to the load lug on the relay. Do I need...

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    Just following up. Went ahead and bought a new pump and replaced the existing breaker with a GFCI. Also moved the salt cell wiring to the relay. Does this look correct? I also bought a square D surge protector. I think it connects to its own 240v 20amp breaker. Does this just go in any available...

    Question about replacing Pentair Pump

    Thanks. I believe the check valve is there because of the incline from the pool to the pump. I was having issues losing prime.

    Question about replacing Pentair Pump

    Thanks. So just to clarify, will I need to rebuilt back to these existing unions that I’ve highlighted in red? Can I just cut the vertical pipe and use a coupling at the spot I’ve highlighted in yellow?

    Question about replacing Pentair Pump

    Hi everyone, I needing to replace an older Pentair variable speed pump (011018). I’m looking at a newer Pentair VSF pump (011056). My question is, can I simply unscrew the plumbing and switch this out without having to raise or lower the incoming or outgoing pipes? I can order this online...

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    I guess my question now is if it’s possible that the drive unit was causing these issues in the first place and not the motor. Can a faulty drive unit cause a grounding issue and trip the GFCI breaker? Just wondering if it’s worth buying the entire pump system or spending the $600 on the drive.

    Pump Won’t Power On - No Display

    Thanks. I will do that. Is there a chance that a faulty drive would trip the breaker like this? Or is that more likely to be motor windings shorting out?

    Last season I had a similar issue with The breaker tripping immediately and I had an electrician replace the GFCI breaker and I did not have any more issues the rest of the season.

    Yes. 240 between l1 and l2. I pulled the pump motor assembly with plans to bench test it at a service center later next week.

    Hey everyone- I attempted to open my pool this morning and as soon as I would turn my breaker on, it would flip right back off. I disconnected my pump from my easy touch panel and the breaker stayed on. I reinserted the wires back into the breaker lugs and tried again. Now the breaker isn’t...
