    Ichlor vs. Intellichlor

    Thanks. It is about 8 years old. I already replaced the flow switch a year or 2 ago. I think it just might be time to replace.

    Ichlor vs. Intellichlor

    I have a few questions on the Ichlor. I search the forum and could not find answers. I need to replace my IC40 and I am considering the Ichol 30. I have a 19,000-gallon pool with a UV light sanitizer. Is the Ichor the latest Pentair SWG? I saw a few youtube videos saying that? Does anyone...

    Jim, Thanks. I think I got it. I assume you meant upper left relay is the pump. Picture came out rotated negative 90. One question is neutral bar. Do you mean the connected group of white wires? Best, Eric

    My WaterPots (fountains) are dry

    Thanks all. I do not think it is a leak. My valve position have not changed at all. Sounds like it might be a check valve. Where might they put a check valve? It is probably better they drain back into the pool. I now have less squirrels drinking out of them and birds playing in them I...

    Water Pots are dry

    I noticed that my Water Pots that use to always have some water in them are dry. When I run them they seem to work fine. They fill up and then are bone dry the next day. They used to always have water in them. Any suggestions?

    Cement board screws?

    I used Parex per his suggestion as well. It is simple. I got a drywall hopper for my compressor at Harbor Freight and used that to apply it. It could not have been easier. I put two coats on.

    My Outdoor Kitchen is Complete!

    As of now all is dry in the storage. Had some big rains earlier. The granite top with silicon caulk around drop-ins is water tight. Initially had water splash through the doors since they are not water tight. I put some weather striping on the inside that took care of this problem. I think...

    New Build - Questions

    Thanks all. Yes crushed granite gets tamped down. It makes a great base for pavers in this area. Thanks for the advice on the sprinkler line. I was thinking about that might be a concern - not worth the risk.

    Hello all, This forum is awesome. I have couple questions before my build. Does anyone see a problem with building an island on crushed granite composite. That is very available here in central Texas. I think it would make a pretty stable base. Considering putting pavers on the granite...
