    Can anyone provide some advice for me. I was wondering if I would be able to connect my new Hayward HP21254T heater to the same timer (Intermatic T104P3) as my pool pump (USQ1152 - 115/230 volt 1.5 hp).

    Decreasing flow rate

    Hayward AquaRite AQR and EcoStar VSP

    I just learned that my AquaRite AQR needs to be powered on only when the pump is running. Both my AQR and EcoStar are 220/240 volt. Does the EcoStar have any output relays built in that I can use to cycle the power to my AQR when the pump is not running? Thanks!

    Pool pump making loud noise after winter.

    Hi there, I've just started up my pool after opening after the winter, and the pump (Hayward Super II) is making a very loud noise while running. Is my pump finished or is this something I can address myself? I've attached a video of the noise. t2_RUkOdL1I Thanks, Mark

    Main Board Replacement

    Greetings Everyone, Our pool maintenance company came to diagnose why our control panel was completely off. They diagnosed a faulty circuit board and quoted me around $1,600 to replace it. Well, I found it for under $500 (Hayward GLX-PCB-BRO) and wondering if I can replace it myself. They...
