    Dead IC40

    Have to ask... I had to replace my IC40 so I have a dead IC40 laying around. This one wouldn't light up but power was good to the cell. Can these be taken apart? Can they be put back together again? Just hate seeing a cell with just two years on it laying around.

    Pentair Ultratemp HC Issues ?

    I pulled the capacitor and it was a bit swollen. Put the new one in and the fan started then 5 minutes later the compressor. It is hot today so I’ll let it run to see if it works.

    Pentair Ultratemp HC Issues ?

    I had some electric issues after a storm. I got the pump going. Lost my Intellichlor and they are out of stock most places but I have tabs and liquid chlorine till I can get one. The Ultratemp chiller is my favorite item during 100+ degrees but it is not working either. It runs but compressor...

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    That is what I wondered but it has been working for years without issues so I haven't messed with it. Going to order a new cell as I truly can't live without. I'm not going to use liquid chlor like dang cave man... Maybe he was colorblind..

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    I pulled the fuse and it has an unbroken piece of metal in the middle so it looks good. In one picture the piece looks bad but in the other fine. Restarted the system same result no lights on ic40. Just downloaded power center manual but not alot of detail there..

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    Yes sir light is green. I will check the fuse. Then I'll find the surge card. Not much in there to go wrong really. Thanks for all the patience.

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    It has a separate power box. Pic above. Breaker->Transformer->surgee card->IC40. Ok.. I do not know where the surge card is but I'll go through the manual. I have a really good multimeter what should the voltage be for the surge card.

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    I build tube audio electronics for a hobby so I at least know how to stay safe. I removed the cables in the grey cover from the com port and tried again. In pool mode the ic40 remained dead. The pool pump continues to function.

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    Grey cable noted... The intellichlor is dead as a doornail. Not a peep or a blink of a light. Before it stopped working. The 2% and 4% were blinking in pairs alternating with 8% and 10%. Pool is indeed in pool mode. Pump is working perfectly now.

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    Ok I read some threads. A little confusing but some good tips. Good news: I took some deoxit to the pins of the Pump Com cable. Now the pump works from the panel without issues. Bad news: However, I have lost power to my SWG cell. It went from blinking like crazy to nadda. I did check...

    Pentair PS4 Panel Comm Probs???

    I just walked out to check and the pump turned itself off. The screen is orange and displays RPM so I hit number 2 so it runs at 1800rpm... If the display not active is green then the panel controls it but not reliably. Service mode shows RPM as you said. Weird but glad you said great! I am...

    This is our 4th year with the pool and I had just bragged about how easy it has been to manage.... Sucker... DOOOM! We had some storms last night with lots of lightning so I turned off the power at the panel. After they passed I turned everything back on and assumed it would resume normal...

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Everything came in really nice this year except for the hibiscus. I dug up several banana trees so the hibiscus has room to spread out. The trees in the back have grown a few feet higher since this pic was taken. Last weekend heated the pool to the 90's. We will be out of town the next two...
