    Our brand new Pentair heater is broken. We're trying to figure out what could be causing it and if it's a quick fix or we'll need to make a warranty call. We are hoping it is a quick fix, since we're sharing the pool with several other families (with a google calendar so there is no overlap)...

    Pentair MasterTemp 400 temperature reading wiggling around, causing heater to cycle rapidly - bad thermistor?

    Hey everyone. I just replaced my MasterTemp 400's thermistor in March (old one was reading 126F so was definitely bad) and this one has been working fine all season until this week when the heater started cycling on and off within the span of a few minutes, now down to a few seconds! The temp...

    HL2 Code on Raypak r206a

    Hey guys, this season I've been getting an HL2 code on my Raypak 206a heater. I'm aware that this is because the outlet temperature is exceeding 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
