    Can there be something bad on the board making cells go bad

    Unfortunately the only warranty place by me will only replace dealer/installer installed cells, making the whole process ridiculous. There used to be a service center in driving distance that would check and replace any cell with a receipt,, but they are no longer around. I feel like it's a...

    Can there be something bad on the board making cells go bad

    Ebay so the last two were this listing, granted when I got them they were under 300. I didn't expect hayward quality, but I didn't expect them to die at 9 months. In the summer, they run high, like 75% and winter maybe 25%. My pool runs 8 hours a day on low. The previous cell was a glx hayaward...

    Can there be something bad on the board making cells go bad

    Or are cells just this terrible lately? I have an older PS8 and a T15. I have had the board redone about 5 years ago and it fixed some high salt readings, but I think I've gone through 3 cells in 4 years recently. One hayward and two off brand. All of them drop one side of polarity first. My...

    heater temp control

    Yes, everything is Hayward/goldline. This happens regardless if I set the shopping at the control panel or aquapod. I don't think anything is programmed via the heater directly. Both displays read close to the actual water temp, measured independently. The problem is the heater doesn't turn...

    heater temp control

    hi all, i'm having trouble with my hayward heater control... the other day my kids were in the jacuzzi, telling me it was too hot. I had it set to 96, and when I went to check the controls it was reading 102. I've been watching it for a while now and it consistently overshoots. it does...

    is this a cracked impeller?

    got it all going, as an FYI, the new white wear ring that came with the diffuser is shorter that the one that was factory installed... i triple checked the # on the ring vs the one on the parts list, so i'm hoping it's just been updated. seem to work so far...

    is this a cracked impeller?

    so, my 2 spd 2hp tristar has been sounding like it's going on the uphill part of a roller coaster just before the drop. i was hoping it was some debris, but found that the white wear ring had just about eaten through the diffuser. i assume that the impeller was cracked as well, but looking at...

    How long to aerate?

    i know, super old thread, but, can i ask if this installed easily to a standard hayward eyesocket? it looks like 1.5" MIP and i've never tried to take the eyesocket fully off the pipe fitting... the web images don't look like a connection i've seen, and i haven't been able to scour any...

    low salt reading due to controller?

    sorry, what's an OCLT? i have a PS8 (about 8 years old or so). so no dial, just the settings section. i cycled through the diagnostic section and i didn't see any percent display there, only in the settings. found the oclt, i'll try that. just can't see why the huge jump just from swapping the...

    low salt reading due to controller?

    so, it seems i'm still having problems, only new ones now. the cell i replaced was a glx (1 year replacement aquarite). the new cell is a 940 (4 year cell) and it's labeled 940swp, for swim pure. i was under the impression the "name brands" were all hayward and were interchangable... is there...

    low salt reading due to controller?

    ok, thanks. seems a little closer to 600-700 off(reading 2900-3k this morning), but if the intent is just to get it to come on, i guess i'm ok for now. just seems like i'll be in trouble sooner whit this kind of offset.

    low salt reading due to controller?

    so, i recently measured my salt at almost 4k, and new that my call hadn't been doing it's best (clean and reading 2500), so i bought a new extended life 940. when plugged it in, i had it remeasure the instant and saved that... and it wound up being 3100. i re checked the salt with my taylor drop...

    Hayward T-15 vs T-51w vs extended life cell

    i have a glx/w/replacement cell that i got from an authorized dealer as a replacement for my failed 3yr cell. i't s bad now 10 months in, and the dealer (who would be the one to actually provide the replacement) told the the 1 yr on a glx is the max vs however much is left on your original 3 or...

    glx cells and warranty

    anyone here well versed in t cell failures and warranty? i had a 3 year t15 that i received a replacement for about 9 months ago. the shop i dealt with does direct swap in the shop, so it cost me nothing. he gave me the impression that the cells in general are a crapshoot as to whether i even...

    cya chart

    it's been a while since i've been on, but way back, i setup my pool according to the big cya chart and always ran bout 35-40ppm cya and followed the recc FC levels. i just ran across the simplified version in the school, and it seems to show not less than 70ppm for SWG pools... i looked through...

    Pool Automation Suggestions

    at this point, sisnce the panel all works off of relays anyway, might it be easier to run a separate microcontroller like an arduino with a net shield or something? a bunch of guys run this for controlling sprinkler with an android app, seems like it would be similar...

    bad cell behavior?

    i've heard people talk about wiring these in reverse to prevent buildup... i've never had a spot of scale on mine since it was installed. any chance that's the reason for the negative amps? or is that normal?

    bad cell behavior?

    i see, i'll take it in. i noticed that it's not really just that it starts out that way, but reads much higher at high speed on the pump. at high it reads about 3k and -6.1amps, it drops to -4.1 amps and 1.6k on low, then shuts down after a few minutes.

    bad cell behavior?

    i have a ps-8 with a t cell 15.... i'm pretty sure it's bad as it's been reding <2000 and my dropper kit says almost 4k... it does however seem to always start out at 3000-3200 when i just turn on the pump after its been down for a little while. i can do the save instant slat level at that time...
