    Hayward Sense & Dispense install

    That’s great to hear you are having success. Under the right conditions I have found the system to be very stable and precise. Here are the latest stats: Jan 18th-March 26th - 5 gallons @ 1/2 gallon per week March 27th - April 12th - 2 gallons @ 3/4 gallon per week April 13th - May 3rd - 5...

    In a mess with my pool builder! Help!

    Stick with the pool company. They most likely have been around a while and have a better chance of honoring the warranty.

    Polaris Issue

    I had a similar issue. I rotated the backup valve 180 degrees and that seem to fix it.

    Phosphate levels? Who's testing?

    Oh yea, a lot has changed in 10 years. When I had my 180g reef tank up and running every aspect of the process was automated. Even the water changes. Only thing I had to do was add the salt to the fresh RO water vat. Unfortunately I still had to manual clean the glass/clean the tank but that...

    Phosphate levels? Who's testing?

    Yea it definitely requires tighter parameter maintenance. Only way I can keep up with it is through automation. Once you get in that mindset of automating it’s hard to go back. I’ve defitnely carried it over to to Pool maintenance discipline. It may be overkill, but it works for me.

    Phosphate levels? Who's testing?

    I use this product regularly, 3oz every month or so and it defitnely works as advertised. I come from a reef aquarium background where phosphates are managed to reduce algae outbreaks as the use of chlorine is not an option. For me it’s piece of mind and a safety net that allows some...

    Neighbors revoked previously agreed upon access

    Regardless of their decision to deny access they will NOT get their piece and quiet during your build. And there’s nothing they can do about that.😉 a lot of noise on the way!

    New - Leslie’s AccuBlue Home Program

    If you plan to spend around $600 a year on pool “stuff” the Accublue test device(Aka Lamotte Spintouch) is basically free. You can also use the 50$ credit a month to buy more test disks which are 5.99 for 5. The Spintouch also comes with a calibration disk to ensure the photocell is calibrated...

    Hayward Sense & Dispense install

    It keeps 7 days of data. The way it works is any time ORP, PH, Air Temp or water temp changes a complete entry is logged. I usually have 600 entries per day. You can create very basic charts. See sample below of chart view and grid view.

    ORP only goes up with non-chlorinating shock

    Definitely keep us posted. Success with ORP and SWG is hard to come by. I’m sure others on the forums will be interested to learn the results.

    Not understanding the lure of robotic cleaners..

    Nothing like watching 2 robots playing chicken. now that is a robot I may consider. Most of my debris tends to stay on the surface and when I reduce my VSP for most of the day traditional skimming is not so good. Which one would you recommend for 15k gallon pool?

    Hayward Sense & Dispense install

    Hmm. That’s interesting. If you have room to install another relay you could add the chlorine dispenser as an accessory and create a schedule within the prologic to activate it.

    Not understanding the lure of robotic cleaners..

    I’ve never owned a robot so I can’t speak to the experience of pulling it out of the pool. I don’t find pulling my 280 out of the pool that difficult. Both robot and pressure cleaners have some sort of cord attached. Both need to be unplugged from some sort of wall outlet. Why is pulling a...

    Sense and dispense ORP & SWG

    Take a look at this excerpt from the HL-CHEM Manual below. Its from Page 10. I believe if you go back through the Config Wizard and Select 'No" when asked if ORP controls Chlorination you may be able to get your ORP readings even though it will not control the SWG. Unless the pics you sent are...

    Yea, not a big fan of those. Hard to lay that down on top of nice pavers.

    Not understanding the lure of robotic cleaners..

    I’ve considered this option as well. If I knew at the time this was an option, I probably would have ordered as part of the PB package. Instead I have the 280 which has been a solid performer but does not do walls. My biggest issue with robots is that it requires an electrical cord that...

    Below is a picture of my dashboard when Chlorinator is tuned off. I still see ORP measurement even on dashboard page.

    Sense and dispense ORP & SWG

    Although ORP won't show on the main dashboard page of the mobile app. I think if you select the body of water it will still show ORP reading on that screen under chlorinator tile, it that doesn't work you may have to go further and select the chlorinator tile and you might see it on that screen.

    Automated Testing

    Love the Apex system. I had one prior to Netptune adding automated testing capabilities. I heard its great though. Now I have a smaller tank and just haven't gotten around to buying one due to this big money pit "hole" in my backyard ;)

    Hayward Sense & Dispense install

    CYA above 30ppm can typicallydecrease ORP. It this case ORP is not decreasing but the level of FC needed to reach my set point of 715mV is less. So actually my ORP levels increased. I’m going to keep an eye on it to see if it changes.

    Pentair Intelliconnect Issues

    Does Pentair actually push and install OTA updates automatically? Hayward does OTA but the customer had to explicitly go to the panel and execute the install.

    Hayward Sense & Dispense install

    Update: Below are the latest chlorine consumption rates. The one item I forget to add in the Jun24-Jul15 update was that I added 8oz(1 puck) of Trichlor to help maintain CYA. I revised that line to incorporate that addition plus I also added 16oz(2 pucks) of Trichlor over the past few weeks...
