    New GFCI and my pool light

    I’ve swapped out the original 15A GFCI for a 20A GFCI, and I’ve confirmed that the neutral (white) is connected to the bus bar, along with all the other circuits. I’ve ruled out a major short, since swapping in a standard breaker works fine. @avspin, I think you may have the solution for me...

    New GFCI and my pool light

    I recently upgrade my entire pool pad with a Pentair Easytouch, VS pump, intellichlor, etc... I finally got around to hooking up the pool light, and I wired it to a new GFCI breaker in the Easytouch. However I now have an issue where the GFC trips where the GFCI trips whenever I turn on the...

    Installing Solar Diverter Valve

    Here is the modified plumbing diagram after taking your feedback into account. I also moved the intake to the Polaris pool sweeper to a point after the filter as well for the same reasons.

    Installing Solar Diverter Valve

    Once again TFP has saved our pool ; ) Great point on the unfiltered water, I will modify the design to move the solar intake to the filtered side, and out of caution, add a check valve below the diverter valve so the drain down flows out to the pool side and not back into the filter (which is...

    Installing Solar Diverter Valve

    I was looking to keep things simple, and did not think I need the isolator valve, but I do have the check valve and vacuum break to allow the drain down. Also, I plan to run the solar heating in line with the pump and before the sand filter. I've looked at the link to the Florida Design, and...

    Installing Solar Diverter Valve

    I recently installed a complete Pentair System, EasyTouch controller, VS Pump, and IC40. I am now ready to add the diverter valve to a roof mounted solar. I saw a picture in one of the posts that show a single diverter valve and a check valve, plus vacuum break at the top of the solar...

    Wiring Intelliflo VS Pump and Intellichlor SCG to EasyTouch control system - direct or through relay?

    I've finally received all the components I need to replace my antiquated system with what I hope will be an upgrade. I am working through the connections on paper, but the various Pentair manuals are not at all clear. The EasyTouch installation manual has instructions to connect the comm cable...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    Thanks Jim and Allen! Since I didn't unpack and install anything, it looks like I will be able to return the items. I will order the 520593 and once it arrives, will get started with the installation. Thanks for all the help in cutting out what would have been a very complicated and expensive...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    Allen, I don't have a Spa, and also no water features. In terms of heating, we had a water heater a long time ago, but it's no longer serviceable and we will go to solar (we get pretty good results with just a cover at night). Jim, You referred to a link in your note for the Easytouch, but I...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    Jim, The pool pad is fed by a 12 gauge service feed on a 20 amp breaker. There are two 20Amp breakers feeding the pool pad (connected by a pin in the handle of the breaker). This made me realize that I actually have 220VAC, with the two phase connected, and I went out to the pool pad this...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    I realized I should have "prioritized" my goals! - Add a Salt chlorinator. - Move to a easy to use iPhone based interface for basic setting and use. - Move away from the manual timers currently on the equipment pad. - Wire and plumb for a passive Solar heater we will mount on the garage roof...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    Thanks Jim, I am not sure why Pentair would have given me the part number to order, 522353 and Intellichlor cell with the pump, if there is a better way to do this. I have not installed anything, so I will see about the return. Can you suggest a better alternative, and if I can return all or...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    I have gone through the TFP Forum postings ( great resource! ) and am aware of some of the issues in connecting the Superflo VS pump to the Easytouch. I could use some guidance here as well. Any suggestion on connecting the Easytouch to the Superflo? The Pentair technician suggested using two...

    Wiring Intellichlor IC40 to Easytouch PL4 and Pentair Superflo VS pump

    I am upgrading my pump / controller and wanted to add salt generation. I worked with Pentair tech support and they spec’d out the Easytouch PL4 with Screenlogic, Intellichlor IC40, and the Superflo Variable Speed pump. But as I am getting ready to install the system, it seems I am not able to...
