    pentair ic20 red flow light

    Hello, bout a week now and the flow light is solid red all the time. The returns are putting out flow as usual... should I assume bad flow switch and is this a user serviceable part? the SWCG is about 5 years old as of this season.

    easytouch triggering pool delay

    confirmed... it's been an hour now since i backwashed and just tried to turn the pump off after leaving it running. no luck. DEL appeared. I am supposed to be in the middle of a scheduled pump cycle right now, which is between 7pm and 7am (weeknights). you would think I could interrup this...

    easytouch triggering pool delay

    i can recreate this problem on demand. in fact, if i try to shut my pump off right now, I will get the delay and have to cancel the delay to shut the darn pump off. I will go test this theory right now. I had certainly triggered this delay about 5 times as I was toggling my pump on/off during...

    easytouch triggering pool delay

    while I agree this makes sense, there are 2 issues: 1) the heater had not been running 2) it never used to do this

    easytouch triggering pool delay

    I have been having troubles getting my programming on my easytouch correct this year. What I've just noticed in the last 2-3 days is that i cannot shut my pump on and off from my easytouch anymore. I keep getting a "pool delay" and i have no clue why. I have to override/clear the delay to turn...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    interesting idea! I will see if this suits. as others have said, it's not like I can blow anything up. the worst that can happen with me messing around is the heater would just run non-stop, which I would notice after a day I should hope. With a circuit function as an egg timer, does this...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    yes, I contemplated creating an elaborate schedule. it would work except for 1 part... if the pool is already on, when my kids touch the P button(to get heat), it wont start heating. there must be a way... 1 or 2 seasons ago, turning on the "Spa" heat by touching the "heater" button would...

    Anyone with ScreenLogic want to do me a favor???

    sadly, it looks like that NOAA site is only for american airports. I mean I suppose I could pick Ogdensburg NY, that is only about 60 miles south of here (98 kms :) ). I will see if there is a candian weather XML feed on the interweb

    Anyone with ScreenLogic want to do me a favor???

    false alarm above... you will note the system name was just malformed. so back to Jim's question...here's what I see now that I set this up. you can see even though my system is in celsius, the weather is coming in F. I have no idea what weather source it is using... the lat long seems wrong...

    add gfci breakers

    Hi everyone, so is my diagram too busy/confusing or is it that no one knows? I am not an electrician, but I think to achieve my goals I would need to follow these steps: 1) remove the 20A dual pole pump breaker, and replace with the 20A dual pole GFCI breaker.(I have one) In this case, I guess...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    Thanks for all the tips Jim. I should have explained better what I want to do. 1) I want to run my pump over night, 7days a week (7pm-7am), I have the heater set point kinda low, as I dont always want to apply max heat to the water. 2) I have a schedule for this, and it works well 3) my wife...

    Anyone with ScreenLogic want to do me a favor???

    I didnt even know about this feature. I am in Canada. I just tried the setup, but it doesnt find any airports and errors out. I had to force kill screenlogic on my laptop. Now when I try to connect to my system, I get this:

    Easytouch and pool heater

    On the ScreenLogic, neither is green because at the time I took that photo, my system schedule was “off”. It runs from 7pm-7am(overnight). When the pool schedule is active, the pool button is green. as for the indoor wall remote, it seems to just replicate most of the outdoor panel. I am...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    here's a screenshot of the screenlogic heat settings, and a photo of the "heater" button on the indoor panel I was describing. when I touch the button on the indoor panel, the display indicates my "spa" is on... i dont have a spa. you can see in the photo I had touched the button, turning it...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    i will take a screenshot like that tomorrow when I am at my desk with the pentair app. i do not have a spa. it seems to me, i used to be able to touch the heater button on the indoor easy touch controller, and the heater would come on. then i changed a setting and now that button does nothing...

    add gfci breakers

    so i happen to have a 15A and a 20A breaker with gfci capability in my toolbox. i was thinking I'd add these to my easy touch. the pump and heater are presently not even on a gfci. the pool lights are tied into a breakout gfci plug. I am attaching a diagram of my wiring. basically, the SWCG...

    Easytouch and pool heater

    So my easytouch has an indoor panel as well as the app. When I turn on the heater using the easy touch indoor panel, the heater does not come on. I think it used to though. I cannot remeber what I did but I must have changed some settings because I think the heater button on the easytouch...

    Easy touch relays to control 110v?

    So I bought all the parts today and after about 2 hrs I now have a switched gfci outlet for the gazebo on the easytouch! Woohoo! Thanks for all the info. Tomorrow I am going to draw up a circuit diagram of how my panel is wired with hopes to get advice on how to add the pump gfci breaker as...

    Easy touch relays to control 110v?

    makes perfect sense. seems I could improve upon it somewhat by taking the lights and putting them on their own gfci breaker (vs using the receptacle). i do have one here. then the receptacle would be on its own breaker. i am going to have to add another breaker for my new aux run for my patio...

    Easy touch relays to control 110v?

    What did you think about my other comment there where the gfci is still on when the light relay is off. The gfci is only off if the lights breaker is off.

    Easy touch relays to control 110v?

    I did the test with service mode and yes the swcg powered off. looks like I need a breaker, an outdoor gfci box and some conduit.
