    Converting Intellichem into Pump only

    OCLT showed 0.3ish when I check a few weeks back so with CC of 0, i should be good.

    Converting Intellichem into Pump only

    I guess i wasnt really clear. I was more curious if I should try to keep my min higher than 2.5 if Im losing ~3 per day....around say 3.5-4 to keep me from going to 0.

    Converting Intellichem into Pump only

    Hi all, I used my intellichem system for the last 2 years mostly successfully but this year I used dramatically more Cl so have messed with things a bunch. My plan is to use it to sense and adjust pH because it does well there but only use the CL side to pump a preset CL volume by controlling...

    Salty Tasting Cl Pool Water

    This summer I have noticed that my water has a fairly salty taste. It stays pretty balanced but has taken more Cl to stay that way this year. I did do an OCLT last night and am borderline (lost 0.4-0.5ppm) but no CC. Water clear, nada growing on walls. Here are my latest numbers: pH: 7.6 FC...

    Pentair Mastertemp 400 Screen problem

    In luck! Since it was a new build and all my equipment is Pentair, I did qualify for the 3yr warranty. They confirmed the board does have to be replaced and sending someone this week. Thanks for the help @ajw22!

    Pentair Mastertemp 400 Screen problem

    Its open with heat on or off. Sounds like bad relay.

    Pentair Mastertemp 400 Screen problem

    I have a multimeter. The relay the power lines are tied into is on the far left. Not sure why so many wires tied into that relay... I measured voltage from the black to red wires here with and without the system calling for heat. Shows 240 all the time regardless if heater is on or off.

    Pentair Mastertemp 400 Screen problem

    Moved from here. @ajw22 I have the same problem as the original poster but I wasnt as lucky. Same mastertemp 400 except I have the Intellicenter. Pool is 2.5yrs old and heater has always worked and nothing has been chamged. I followed all the steps up and checked the basics. 1. Heater has...

    Initial Setup of SWG

    Ok. Now what you said makes sense. I think I got it...now I just gotta get her through the SLAM via phone. :)

    Initial Setup of SWG

    I am confused about setting SWG to 100%. Why run it wide open? It seems like you are saying only run your pool pump as long as needed with the SWG at 100% to replenish FC then shut off. Doesnt she also need to make sure she turns her pool over at least 1x per day to get adequate mixing and...

    Initial Setup of SWG

    My sister is struggling to get her pool set up properly and unfortunately since I am CL based, I am a bit clueless on where to start with the SWG. Here are the details: Test Kit = Taylor K2005 Pool size = 15k gal SWG = AquaPure 1400 + @80%. Pool runs for 8hrs from 11am to 7pm. FC = 2 pH = 8...

    To SLAM or not to SLAM?

    I was afraid you were going to say that. 4 cups of acid and 2 gallons of CL going in..... :(

    To SLAM or not to SLAM?

    I have a little bit of green algae (or thats what I think it is) that forms in the same corner of my pool. The corner is always shaded and is where my pool robot fails to brush effectively and admittedly, I am a chronic non-brusher because the robot runs daily. Once I get the brush out, it...

    Recommended Order to Fix Numbers

    We don't have a pump so the plan was just to toss a hose in and start diluting. Gonna test after 24hr and see where it is. I know its slower but should still work.

    Step 6 was Step 0...Right after stop going to Leslies! They told the guy that his CYA was 5!!! At least I had told him the night before not to trust those clowns. He thought something was up when they told him to buy and add a GALLON of CYA.

    Recommended Order to Fix Numbers

    A good friend of mine called me and is struggling with his pool....first question was type of chlorine and the answer was tabs. I ran my Taylor kit over and checked all his numbers. He is pretty out of whack. Here are the numbers for his ~17k gal pool: pH = 7.9 FC = 5 TA = 150 CH = 360 CYA =...

    Another scale issue - maybe...

    The buildup is on the pool side of the spillway wall. One is at the intersection of the back wall and the spa. The other is along the steps on the spa wall.

    I'm not positive but know it was different than the other grout on the water line tile. Will check w PB.

    Any idea what is causing this stuff and if it will come back? I dont really want to have to do this repeatedly. Water here is pretty pricey.

    Another scale issue - maybe...

    Hi, as we have started getting back in the pool, I have noticed what appears to be some calcium scale but I am almost sure is it efflorescence from the glass tile grout since that is the only place its showing up (see pics). The funny thing is that it's mostly below the water line though the...
