    Calcium delight: combination of surface staining and nodules

    OnB: thanks for your reply. I had read the Ca Nodules thread (and many others) and share the concern, but based on past PB responses and the language of the warranty (good topic for another thread: "what to look for and require in a PB contract!!") seems to favor the builder (IANAL), i.e...

    Calcium delight: combination of surface staining and nodules

    My pool surface has always had white chalky staining, so much of it that it wasn't clear what the true quartz french grey color was supposed to look like for the first 2 years of ownership. The pool was put in as part of a new home build, and there were too many issues to deal with in parallel...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    Dirk: more or less my thoughts. Would add: burn may not be related to the current per se, but due to corrosion of the wire pressure contacts in the connector, which just isnt up to the outdoor location and frequent on/off cycles. Corrosion causes resistance causes heat at the rated current...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    Black wire bypass update I have a nearby computer repair store I have used for other issues, and brought the disassembled ipH controller box to them and described the proposed bypass procedure. They said they were a bit worried about melting the nylon connector too much, but gave it a go...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    I like this last solution best. make a jumper, and retain the mechanical stability of the "designed by professionals and built in a factory" existing.

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    All thanks for your advice and enthusiasm. I am attaching some close-ups of the burnout of one pin within the nylon AMP type power supply connector, for the record. AMP is made by TE.com. I can learn if this is rated for an outdoor/damp application with this current range. Seems like this...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    Thanks for everyone's feedback, as i am coming up to speed I see this is a "known issue" with intellipH. I am out of warranty and got a lot of repairs under warranty, this one is on me (and more to come!!). I opened the intellipH control box (3 screws) and it seems that I have a recurrence of...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    Jim: I would remove the IC40's cable from the ipH and connect it to the Automation and see of the IC40 then gets power. This helped: IntelliChlor is fine, when driven directly from the power center. Also. the IpH is fine, driven from power center. So PS and IntelliChlor are fine, and...

    IC40 Lights out, with red system error light on IntellipH

    My IC40 start-up was in fall 2017, and intellipH was added summer 2020. Both stopped working recently. IntellipH control box has power, but red error light is on, and the IntellipH message panel says the the salt cell is not on. Manual acid injection is not allowed. All IC40 lights are...

    Replacing Whisperflo with VS in an "oversized" system

    For completeness: Pentair agreed to a Whisperflo pump repair beyond the 3 year limit. I asked if they would give a credit towards the Intelliflo but this was not offered. Thanks again for the helpful input, I'll consider this as i weigh the option of a upgrade based on sound level and energy cost.

    Replacing Whisperflo with VS in an "oversized" system

    I'm the first owner of a fully Pentair-equipped lap pool, 12K gallons. I'm new to pool ownership too, so have been "learning as things break". Two weeks after the 3 year warranty ended, my heater broke. Pentair authorized the repair, under conditions that would be the last warranty repair...
