    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Thank you JamesM and JoyfulNoise! So, what I have noticed is that temp rise is faster ... maybe 4F per hour? I should have created a log previously for comparison purposes, but ... When the heater starts - it starts! Quickly, and runs a bit more, er, robustly? Exhaust is a bit louder. I'm...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Service tech did not adjust - I watched the regulator box unsealed and the installation. I fully understand the engineering required and concept of tolerances, both manufacturing and operations - but this equates to around 20% ... I pulsed the tech yesterday on the pricing - he is standing by...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    If the regulator says it is set to 8”, how could it provide 9.62”? I watched the tech unseal the box.

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    So, quick check this morning - static starts high, but stabilizes at 9.62, then drops to 7.25 when running.

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Static was dropping as I was taking photo ... regular is preset at 8" (or at least that is what the label says) ... didn't wait long enough for it to stabilze, perhaps? Will check. After the risers it goes to plastic - at least that is normal for around here. Starts quickly and there is...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    wineform - yeah, I try and not think about how ugly the gas company work is - doesn't leak, though. So, here's status! Hired local gas contractor and watched carefully asking a few questions along the way. Nice fellow who tolerated my questions well :) Photos - Static pressure to heater...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    LED devices are still operating - one looks a bit discolored. Could replace the entire device, or just the covers. Ben from PAL Lighting called and we discussed how to remove the devices and their method for attaching. If I want to completely replace, it is a ridiculous amount of money. The...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    James - you are a great resource - THANK YOU! Will check options - like can I buy replacement lights only. Well, quick check is OEM only for lens and they are inexpensive, but can buy entire replacement kit elsewhere for about $300 - here's the page with the items ... being 12V, not fiber...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    I can't tell what manufacturer or model - 12V, though. May not be a niche, but just the conduit. Took another photo showing the other part that had fallen off ... the clear plastic cap slips over the light itself, and it looks like the white threaded ring keeps the cap in place ... I don't...

    Hard wired remote for Hayward ProLogic controller? Which one? Expandability?

    Just received today - just installed. I checked that it would actually control and was operational prior to running th 90' of wire :) Once confirmed, I disconnected everything and snaked the 24 AWG phone wire around inside the vinyl soffit trim, through the soffit trim where it was REALLY...

    LED lighting replacement - covers coming apart

    Hi All, Continuing maintenance on our pool - three years old - in ground. We have two LED lights - photos show cover and ring that have detached from one - the other is close to the same and both show some rust or corrosion on the multiple screws around the LED container. Can these be...

    Low Inlet Pressure to Hayward 400K natural gas heater

    Hmmm … the pipe into the house is under tension from being yanked into alignment … no longer a 90. As long as it doesn’t leak, right?

    Two Speed Hayward pump making noise and not starting on high speed

    James, Yeah, was thinking about just keeping the 189-227 JIC … was $7 … the 25-10 was $12. Appreciate everyone’s help. Hopefully, this evolution will inform and be helpful to others!

    Two Speed Hayward pump making noise and not starting on high speed

    Just received 25-10 cap - installed and high speed works fine now. Recall from previous comments, the original 25-10 uF did not test right (admittedly using an Ohm meter), whereas the original 189-227uF did test OK with the Ohm meter.

    Two Speed Hayward pump making noise and not starting on high speed

    Interesting discussion. I‘ll swap new 25-10 cap in when I get it. Apparently, there is no consistent failure mode.

    Two Speed Hayward pump making noise and not starting on high speed

    Right … does the relay control both the low and high speed with same switching action? ie if low speed works, and high speed can be made to happen by starting low speed then switching to high speed with the control button, could the relay be at fault? Contacts look good on the centrifugal...

    Two Speed Hayward pump making noise and not starting on high speed

    Yep … per the thread, the inside cap is 189-227 uF. The cap on top is dual run for two speeds.
