    Pump Shutting Down (Pump Shudder)

    So maybe the switch is defective? Is it just a matter of replacing the switch then? A trip to Home Depot to pick one up and I can swap it in? Shutting all the power off, of course.

    Pump Shutting Down (Pump Shudder)

    Yes, it was in the “on position” but not fully. Almost like a circuit breaker that has been partially tripped. A slight touch up and it kicks back on. That is the way I have been finding it when it shuts down on its own.

    Pump Shutting Down (Pump Shudder)

    Thanks James. Can you tell me what you think is happening in the first YouTube video I posted? The switch is in the off position and when I move it to the on position the first couple of times, the motor does not kick in. On the third attempt it kicks in. You can also see the copper wire that...

    Pump Shutting Down (Pump Shudder)

    Hi James, I added a Pentair IC40 and a Raypak 266 Electronic gas heater. My pump has now been “bonded” (I think that’s the correct term) to the switch that you see in one of the pictures. The electrician told me that it is now code to have the equipment bonded together. I posted two links to...

    SWG Recommendations? What are the pros and cons of the various options?

    Thanks for the information. It seems like many people are happy with the Pentair Intellichlor IC40). I should have more accurately explained in my original question that the power supply is $700 and the cell is $1000 when you need to replace it. The Pentair option comes with a 3 year warranty...

    SWG Recommendations? What are the pros and cons of the various options?

    Hi everyone, I am looking at having a SWG installed in a couple of weeks when I replace my gas heater (with a Raypak 266 electronic). I have been told by the pool tech that I can go with either of the following options: 1. Aquapure PLC1400 (price unknown at this point) 2. TrueClear (price...

    Where do you buy large quantities of baking soda in Canada?

    I usually find it at the Dollar store for $1 per 500g box.

    Test Questions

    Ok TS, thank you. It seems from the chart on CYA & FC levels that if my CYA is around 40, then my minimum FC level is 3 and my target is 5. I'll try to keep those levels as I test daily over the next week or so.

    Test Questions

    Thanks Duraleigh, I thought FC of 7.4 sounded high because I've never had a reading from a pool store that was over 4.5...so I thought maybe I did the test wrong. Maybe I took too long adding the drops?

    Test Questions

    For the first test I used the 25 ml test line and had to add 37 drops, so 37 x .2 = 7.4, right? But maybe I took too long between testing FC and CC? I tested around 2 pm in the afternoon. - - - Updated - - - Hi Lefty51, thanks for the response. I have started to read the forums, but I...

    Test Questions

    Hi everyone, I'm using the Taylor 2006 FAS-DPD test kit. 1. For my first tests on Monday I used the 25 ml sample line and had to add 37 drops of R-0871...so my FC is around 7.4? Seems too high, and I'm wondering what I did wrong? 2. No combined chlorine was found, that's good, right? 3. pH was...

    Leak has me Stumped

    Ok John, thanks for the suggestions. I will try to get down and leak test the drain with food colouring or by covering it up as per your suggestion. I'll keep you guys posted.

    Leak has me Stumped

    After 24 hours the water loss is the same, about an inch. The skimmer line was plugged as well as all the return lines. I did not perform a leak test on the bottom drain yet as I had difficulty staying down there long enough to remove the cover and squirt the food colouring. I'm checking the...

    Leak has me Stumped

    Ok, I've refilled the pool and have plugged the skimmer and my returns lines. I am going to watch for water loss over the next 24 hours to determine if I continue to lose water with the returns & skimmer plugged. I will also try getting down to the drain to perform a leak test. Thanks John...

    Leak has me Stumped

    Ok, I brought water level up to our "normal" fill level. I shut off pump and plugged the skimmer line. I have lost about 1/2 of an inch of water in the first 6-8 hours, but then the water loss definitely seems to slow down to the point where it is only about 1/8 of an inch over the next 16...

    Leak has me Stumped

    Hi Doghouse, I don't think it is a leak on my concrete pad as I never have water there. All my fittings & connections were replaced last week when the company did the pressure test and I had the leak before and after. I am in the process of bringing my water up before I shut off my pump and see...

    I will measure the water loss with the pump off and nothing plugged tomorrow and report the results.

    Leak has me Stumped

    Hi John, Thanks for the quick reply. As I am new to pool ownership, maybe I am not describing the issue accurately. I can run my pump with the intake valve set at all skimmer, all bottom drain, or any mix in between. We only seem to lose water when the skimmer line is being used. All bottom...

    Leak has me Stumped

    Hi everyone, Our in ground pool has a leak whenever our pump is running using the skimmer line. Our latest test showed 1/2 an inch in 10 hours. We tried isolating the leak by shutting off the pump and plugging all return lines and we did not lose any water. When we run the pump using the bottom...
