    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Jimrahbe Since putting the schedules in, I haven't seen a lapse in the pump just randomly shutting off. If it is, it's being restarted when the next 4 hour scheduled speed is being called for. I haven't any clue. But, I guess it's working just fine as we've not had a noticeable problem in...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Poolbreh, I can definitely go back to my single speed and just use the pump controller to see what happens! Great idea!

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Jimrahbe I've not had a concern since this change going on almost 10 days. Strange....... I change speed every 4 hours for 5 minutes and 10 minutes alternating and alternate 3 speeds 1550, 2050 and 2550 RPM. I don't see any change in pump prime by this method or by changing Aux 2 and Aux 3...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Jimrahbe made the schedule as you've suggested. So far no change in amount of water in pump basket area (still full). I'll go down this rabbit hole long enough to satisfy all options have been exhausted, so a warranty exchange can be done (pump prime theory). FWIW, i kind of like the change...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Jimrahbe I don't believe I have a priming issue at all. I have very little air bubbles in the top of the lid of the VSF pump. When it did it this morning, and the pump was stopped there was 1 singular air bubble about the size of a silver dollar. I thought maybe there was a priming issue a...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Jimrahbe the random trips started again. Pentair tech support for pumps said my pump speed was too low (1550RPM) and said I had to set it to 1850RPM. They also changed the pump prime sensitivity from 5 to 8. Their working theory is that there could be air bubbles from too low of flow and the...

    My SWG Maybe Undersized

    @BuffLosolja a SWCG will increase PH, much like aeration will. IDK how much it raises it over time though. I clicked the link and it said I didn't have permission to view...

    @Newdude, well........if it were a snake..... sure enough!

    My SWG Maybe Undersized

    @YippeeSkippy, what are your thoughts about adding a note to the ABC's of pool chemistry the negative impacts of using sodium bisulfate (ph minus), in certain situations (plaster, SWCG, etc). We talk about using muriatic acid. That is unless i missed it.

    @Newdude, that made me chuckle!

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    After the reset I've not had any more random 'shut offs' since Monday. I'll update the thread if this recurs.

    Water slightly hazy/cloudy

    @Newdude I'm planning on being a little conservative until I know how everything works, then I'll probably dial that FC 10 down just a little. I'm wanting to learn how things react when I add water, when I keep the cover closed (except for 2 hours to let it breath), swim a lot (lots of people...

    Water slightly hazy/cloudy

    My CYA is 80. My intention is to keep my FC at about 10 and set my SWCG to produce around 4 FC to replenish what's lost. I plan to use the pool math app to see what % output I need to produce that (assume its zero, set a target of 4 and see what is needed for near 24hr output). I'll monitor...

    Water slightly hazy/cloudy

    @cowboycasey thanks! It'd look even better with the high resolution pictures I took, but I couldn't attach them to the thread (file size too big). Appreciative of your quick replies along with everybody else. I will be a TFP donor soon. Already saved me more money than a donation for sure!

    This is TFP Clear!!! Wow! Thanks again!

    *Shallow end, being shocked when grabbing railing*

    This is where I was headed. There could be a ground in the motor or some impressed voltage onto the case. The GFCI breaker could be faulty or something wrong with timer as well as previously mentioned.

    *Shallow end, being shocked when grabbing railing*

    @gamerfan2004, I am not certain that is where it is. After I see some pictures I'll go back through some of your posts and look at where the differences in voltage were for different scenarios and see if there is anything common. I may not be of any help, but some of your current readings...

    *Shallow end, being shocked when grabbing railing*

    @JamesW you will not have current flow at all without a difference in potential. The purpose of any equipotential bonding grid is to have all parts at the same potential. You are correct, there is a possibility for voltage gradients due to resistance in bonding cables, but this change in...

    @gamerfan2004 I am very sorry to hear that you having problems with your pool. I've read through many of the posts and you've gotten a lot of amazing feedback and your methods of troubleshooting at AWESOME! There are soo many times where I still wish I had my oscilloscope from being in the...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @HermanTX There were two places for me to test the cables after I removed the drive operator panel lid (one for each color). I removed the 4 pin connector from the intellicenter and checked continuity. I had continuity and less than 0.5ohm resistance (meter lead resistance) on each wire and...

    VSF Pump Randomly Shuts Off

    @Rocket J Squirrel and @Jimrahbe here it is for VSF. MODS do you want these instructions elsewhere? These came straight from Pentair with photos from my experience. VSF Factory Default instructions. 1. Ensure pump is in stand alone mode, power on, pump at 0 speed (no run command) 2. Press...
