    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    Actually it was specific to the Orbi network connectivity problems and that the connection should be to modem vs wifi, otherwise there are occasional connectivity losses... I did ask him that a second time saying "router not modem correct" and he then said " .. "yeah, modem"...I left it at that...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    Im sorry, I just stumbled on to that Orbi statement while researching my Easytouch no comm issue. I dont recall which site I read it on but if I see it again will let you know. I dont think it said much other than there was an issue with it. I have the same network config you described so that...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    thanks again .. and not to get too far off the original track, but I'll ask anyway ... I've read where ScreenLogic transceiver has issues with a mesh wifi network such as the one I have with an Orbi router. I did ask the Pentair tech, he agreed there is an issue and noted if I connect to Modem...

    Pentair EasyTouch Transceiver Issue

    thanks Jim. That makes sense as I dont know why an antenna would be damaged by power outage/surge and would expect circuitry to be prone to such. So, I suppose I can get the part number off old one to replace with same. But another question ..since I've been considering the ScreenLogic...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    I am finally back at the home where the pool issue is. I took the panel off the ET box and sure enough one of the wires to the heater had come loose from the panel. I replaced it and all is now functioning correctly. Fyi, heater does stay in standby mode at all times and when heat is called for...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    sorry for the delay, been away . I can only assume when I ran the new actuator wire into the box I must have disturbed something ... the unit most definitely would turn on the heater and turn off the heater based on reaching set temp, or, whenever I turned on spa and then turned off ... now, if...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    While in STandby mode the ET will not change the mode to pool or spa when heat is called for. Jim R. You are correct, the unit was wired as 2 wire switch option. Unfortunately my ET does not send the "off signal" so the heater just continues to run till it hits the set temp per heater...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    Just curious, my H400 manual does not reference a Bypass Operation mode ... but the H400IDL manual does ..is it possible the H400 didnt have capability to set BO from control panel ? Maybe dip switch settings ? I honestly do not recall ever seeing bo on the panel display either ... if it is a...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    put into pool mode, was set at 85 and I scrolled down a few degrees .. I put into spa mode, it was set at 104, and i scrolled down a few degrees .. I believe it was put in and left in spa mode when the easytouch installed, which i think makes sense.. I tried again pressing mode (while in...

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    Problem controlling gas heater from easytouch system

    Hello. I've searched for this issue, but unable to find information per my issue. I have an easytouch system controlling my pool and spa. It has worked relatively well since I had it installed, except for a few actuator issues. The easytouch allows me to use the wireless remote to turn on SPA...
