    Which Salt Reading do You Use?

    I have the Pentair IC-40. Recommended salt level is 3600 per Pentair. The reading I get from the unit itself fluctuates between 3700-3900. When I use the Taylor K-1766 I get 4200. Repeatable with 2 different test kits. I know TFP recommends running a couple hundred higher than the optimal...

    Muriatic acid cost?

    In the Southwest markets Lowe's and Home Depot only carry 14.5%. When they switched from 29% to 14.5% they never lowered the price. They continued to sell the half concentration at the same price as before. I get my 29% or 31% at Leslie's.

    First Results with TF-100

    So I am 3 weeks into having water in the pool. waiting another for the salt system to be installed. When I last talked to my PB start up tech, he claimed that Pentair SWG liked a higher level of salt than others, around 4000ppm. Has anyone else heard or experienced this. My other concern is...

    Sequestrant Question

    This is my third pool in Vegas and I don't recall having any issues with metal stains in the past. 1st pool was plain plaster, 2nd pool was pebble tec. This one is quartz so it is a new material to me. Is the scale remover useful with the Vegas hard water, especially with a salt cell?

    Sequestrant Question

    Now say that 5 times real fast. On most of the start up instructions I have read, including here, there is mention of adding sequestrant at a start up dose before adding chlorine and such. If the start up company did not add any, and the pool has been running for 3 weeks now, how would you...

    Screen logic issue. Schedule turned on heater this am.

    I have noticed on my ScreenLogic that when I turn on "spa" the heater comes on automatically. Kind of like a default setting with that circuit. I wish it didn't do that as we like to turn on just the jets for the kids without the heater. I keep the set point for the spa lower than the pool temp...

    Question About Pentair Easytouch 8 - Extra AUX Install

    Awesome. Just to confirm the relay is part# 520106? So my plan to upgrade was to get the pentair Amerbrite LED bulb for the pool light and Intellibrite 5G for the spa as I have not seen a spa bulb replacement available. Is there one in the Amerbrite series? According to Pentair the...

    Question About Pentair Easytouch 8 - Extra AUX Install

    My understanding is that with the Easytouch 4 I can only have 4 relays plus the one "Extra Aux" to make it an Easytouch 5. To get 8 (or 9) I would need to upgrade the board to the Easytouch 8 board. That's the way I understand it from the other threads. Thanks
