    Jacuzzi JVS 185S Above Ground Pool Pump...Simply Awesome from A-Z!

    My 10 year old single speed pool pump recently started to go south and I knew it was time for a change to a variable speed pump to save some money on my energy bill. Before my pump totally died I thought I should do some research on the main brands like Hayward and Pentair. I went to my local...

    IC40 with no lights

    Hi, I have Pentair VSP and I have been running for years at highest speed for 12 hours a day. I have also read somewhere that you can run at low pump, maybe at 1000 ppm. Is that right? With electricity cost nowadays, I hope I can save a few bucks here and there. What is your recommendation...

    WhisperFlo not flowing, but motor is normal

    Yesterday, I noticed that my volute wasn't filling completely, regardless which valve was on (floor, skimmer, or vacuum). Due to an aftermarket dark blue basket, it's hard to see down in there now, but I could see water swirling around, like in a flushing toilet. I also *thought* I was seeing...

    Hello, I purchased a house with the pool already installed and the old owners still haven’t given us the password to the pentair intelligence controller.
