    Does the company have a statement/stance on the battery issue? Seems like something they might want to address before shipping more units.

    Glass Tile

    I have a glass tile "negative edge" spa and lost a lot of tiles during the unprecedented freeze we had this winter. I'm looking for some advice on a good adhesive so that I can reattach them and then also some guidance on the best grout (black) to use for glass tile. I know there have been...

    How to deal with a frozen pool

    I'm no expert, but I would try to take it apart and assess the damage. If it's just that plastic flange that cracked, that could be repaired for a few dollars via a quick amazon search. A new pump will set you back quite a bit.

    All jokes aside, does anyone know if the Maytonics are smart enough to know they’re out of the water on a beach entry?

    I have been having a lot of sporadic issues with my Pi shutting down randomly and then corrupting the SD card. I think I isolated it to the POE adapter. My guess is it wasn’t providing adequate power. Just an FYI in case anyone else experiences same issue.

    Controlling Rs485 slave devices (heater, pump, SWG) directly with Pi

    What is the advantage of using the 3 wire method if controlling via an external source?

    The time is correct on the pi, and actually when I mess with the dash panel, the terminal prompt on njpc updates with the correct time. I'm not really that concerned with the time part personally, as I intend to run schedules via node-red and Home Assistant, but that will require me figuring...

    I have MQTT up and running and can see all the topics in mqttexplorer. What is the best way to control the speed of my standalone VSF pump via mqtt? I can't seem to create features or circuits, so is there a way to directly control the RPM?

    Honestly, if I can figure out how to automate the pump via node-red/home assistant, I'll be very happy. I don't really intend to use the web dash panel.

    I understand how that works. However, as shown in my screenshot above, I only have the available list to pick from and when I try to add more in circuits, I get the following error: So I'm clearly missing something simple on how to add the additional speeds.

    I don't have a manual option in the dropdown...only server where it is set. However, the time is not updating correctly.

    Here are the options I have...none of them directly change the RPM's: I use Home Assistant, so there doesn't appear to be a direct integration at this point.

    @jerryt I appreciate the detail. I do have programs 1 and 2 set on the pump. I finally got my new sd cards and the rpi has a new image and nrpc installed. I just need to experiment with the proper steps to get the pump recognized and in display mode. I'm wondering if I need to cut power to...
