    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Working! Thanks a ton guys. Only thing different in your advice is that I had to leave it at AL-0 for the AquaRite / AquaLink connection.

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Not yet...that's the goal. I used to be able to and somewhere along the line it got disconnected. I didn't install it in the first place & couldn't find an actual installation manual...so...I'm asking here.

    There is something in the RS485 on the Jandy side that is Yellow. The wire coming out of the Aquarite is White.

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Thanks! I'm not positive on the corrosion. Both boxes are outside on the side of my house. Maybe it was left open....don't have a clue. Should I clean it? How?

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Never late than never? Sorry...had lots of stuff wrong with the pool that had to get fixed before this. All done and now on back on this issue. I re-read all the post and sure appreciate it. I'm just confirming (w/ pictures) where I'm going to connect my Aquarite SWG AFTER I do the following...

    Aquarite Desired Output %

    The knob is maxed out at 100 while the display board is only showing 15. I just looked it up and actually replaced both main board and display in March 2017. Here is the exact Display PCB I purchased --> Amazon.com: Hayward GLX-PCB-DSP Aqua-Rite PCB Display: Garden & Outdoor . Looks legit...

    Aquarite Desired Output %

    I have an older Goldline SWG controller. I've replaced the main board a few times. The last time was a few years ago. I did replace the display board last year. Long story, but had the pool turned off for quite a while and basically started over with a refill. Pool has been great and I'm...

    Pressure gauge connection repair

    This just might not be possible now, but my pressure gauge stripped the internal threads of the filter. I don't want to (& couldn't afford) a new filter, so the only way I could fix it (before I found this forum) was to basically fill and glue it shut. I used liquid nails and a beer cap! That's...

    Landscaping redo / Plant recommendations

    First, this pool is located near Houston, TX. Hope that helps with the recommendations! Attached are pictures of my landscaping around the pool and it's out of hand! I'd like to either redo or managed this better. Not sure about the names of most of these plants, but know they drop Crud in my...

    PVC repair help needed

    Totally right Texas Splash! I thought about it, but it was late and dark when I wrote that. Here is a pic of the finished work. If you compare before and after pictures, you can see I had to move that 45/45 degree elbow jog back towards the house to make it between the booster pump and filter...

    PVC repair help needed

    Thanks for all the advice! I finally did the repair. Wound up waiting over night to turn everything back on since we were expecting rain...which never came (Pleaassseeee we need rain!!). Anyway, all is good! No leak (at least where I repaired - new post coming soon) which also means no air in...

    PVC repair help needed

    Hey guys - looks like all the PVC at Home Depot says Schedule 40 DWV. The small 2' precut 2" pipe has a 280 psi rating. I did find some that said 480psi but was still DWV. What gives?

    PVC repair help needed

    Picture is worth a thousand words! Thanks PoolGate and Pool_Medic and jblizzle. How are those 45's together? A 2" piece of PVC glued into each side? I've read some stuff about certain PVC I should be using...stuff not available at Home Depot. True? Also on the primer & glue. Do I need to use...

    PVC repair help needed

    I have a leak in my return line (yellow arrow). Yes, it's the 2nd time and the 1st time I used a rubber sleeve to fix it as you can see in the pictures. I'd like to fix it correctly, but where do I start...literally? Where would I make my cuts? As you can see I have a weird 45 degree jog in...

    Waterfall motor replacement

    Think I might be getting this whole horsepower vs. service factor vs. total horsepower. According to the recommendations, I don't really want to replace the diffuser and impeller, so I should stick with the same (i.e. equal) motor. To find an equal motor, I have to use the equation HPxSF to...

    Waterfall motor replacement

    Noted on the impeller. Yes, this is an in-ground pool. Guess I missed the Bluffton as an above ground motor, but it's just a motor - other than the impeller, who cares? I guess the bracket and such is one reason most say stick with the same model. Just trying to be frugal (cheap!), as I see...

I haven't run the waterfall in probably 3 years and the motor on the pump needs...

    Spa light tripping GFI

    My spa light trips the GFI. I can turn on my main pool light with no issues, but as soon as I turn the spa light on it trips. I've taken the light out of the spa and opened it up. There was a bit of moisture inside (dryed/cleaned with a few Q-tips). Only main pool light on - no issue Main pool...

    New salt cell needed. Generic? Brand recommendations?

    I have an AquaRite/Hayward system (r 1.59) and need a new cell. Current cell is a Hayward GLX t-15. Bite the bullet and get an OEM for $500 or go generic? If I go generic, who has had good luck with with brand? Where online did you purchase?

    How to determine what I have is calcium chloride?

    I have a bucket of white granular pellets that I'm fairly certain is calcium chloride, but I've had it outside and the label on the bucket is no longer readable. How would I go about determining if what is in the bucket is calcium chloride?

    Pool motor not starting - extremely hot

    No joy on the centrifugal switch. If I'm reading the serial number (007113M) correctly, this motor was built in 2011. Should I assume the motor needs to be replaced?
