    AutoPilot - Low Amps at times

    Thank you. Will just stick to OEM. Odd part is after sitting off last night it’s working fine today. Wonder if the cord is going bad. Cell looks good no edges worn. Just random discoloration on the plates.

    AutoPilot - Low Amps at times

    Thanks Marty, I did read that, and hoping its just a depleted cell, but I bought a bigger cell than needed and didn't usually go above 25-40% on power on level 1. Anyone ever try the Aftermarket Cells that have the 5 year warranty vs the Autopilot Factory Cells? Few hundred dollars in cost...

    Autopilot Digital Tri-Sensor Leaking.

    Opened up the pool, and fired up the pump. Seeing water leaking in small beads around the sensor. Is there a replacement seal? Something I can take apart and fix? Or do I need to order a new sensor. Thanks. Wanted to ask before taking it apart.

    Clorox Pool Salt

    Crazy as I was about to buy this the other day when opening the pool. Read reviews on the Walmart site, and all stated the same issue. Definitely a product issue.

    New Skimdoctor installed

    I have one of these, and been using it for over a year. I love it, causes a nice waterfall effect into the basket allowing it to skim the top of the pool very well. My float broke due to the concrete pad on top of the skimmer basket sinking. Been working great. Can open a close the flow a bit...

    LED or Incandescent???

    I am having this question right now, as my fixture is bad and tripping the GFCI. I diagnosed it down to the fixture from the housing. I was looking at the Pentair Intellibrite 5G 120V, but so many bad reviews with it failing in a year or less. Anyone have any opinions or longer term...

    Salt Levels High

    I drained some, since I was worried about the Ladder in the deep end and the ring around the light. I didn't pump out as much as originally planned. If I can get it down to about 4000ppm I will be happy. Will test it tomorrow to see where the levels are at. Thanks

    Salt Levels High

    Pump out a whole bunch of water. Then refill with fresh water. I pumped out about a third of the pool this morning. Gave me some time to re-grout a few spots on the tile that needed it. So not a total loss of time. :)
