    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)...

    Help! Semi-Clueless Texan Here: Are my main line, skimmer, return and suction valve settings okay (during winter storm)?

    The title says it all: I'm very stressed about my inground pool/spa combo (spa is attached), given that it's likely we'll set an all time low temp for the area overnight tomorrow. I'm running both main and aux pumps continuously (have freeze protection enabled), but have a question regarding...

    Pentair Magicstream not working?

    1 of my 2 magicstreams is not performing fully. The one in question thumps and red light comes out of it nicely. But I cannot figure out how to “switch modes” or use the solid light stream for this laminar. The other magicstream on the circuit does function properly. I’ve heard that perhaps...

    Here is a link to my video so you can hear the grinding sound that it is making. It just started doing this for the last few days. The pump still works. The cleaner runs normally, but it just makes this awful noise. I did some research so far but just want to confirm whether it's a sign of...

    Changing heater size

    I have a 9000 gallon small pool that had a MasterTemp 400 heater installed. The basket and coils rusted out and the replacement parts are not worth investing in a 9 year old heater. I was thinking about a new MasterTemp 250 bc it is a bit less expensive and the hookups should be easy except for...

    Just installed a new pump and Pentair multiport. The two ports on the multiport (for pump and return) are leaking. I only threaded them in.
