    Pump doesn’t turn on once it reaches the set “start time”.

    So I have a Pentair Intelliflo VS + SRVS pump that will not kick on once it reaches the start time I have it set to, whenever I have the pump running on Auto. Couldn’t figure out what the issue was, so I left it running on service on the set schedule (I will be back tomorrow). Don’t understand...

    Pentair Optiflo 2hp Pump Issue

    I've had a 2HP Optiflo for about a month, self-installed and bought new. It's been running without issue for that time, until this morning, when I went out to check chlorine and turned the pump on. I heard a puff and pop from the rear of the housing followed by a tripped breaker. I'm thinking...

    Hi, everyone. Thanks for the great community! I've been learning a lot over the past couple of weeks. We had an electricity surge that fried a bunch of stuff, including my Pentair EasyTouch controller. The controller will still turn on my main pump and the overflow pump, but it won't turn...

    Overcurrent alarm: pentair sta rite VS

    My pool pump (pentair sta rite VS) gives repeated overcurrent alarms. The pump will start and run all good for a few (random 5 to 25) seconds. Then it stops with an Overcurrent alarm. After 20 seconds, the pump resets itself and start again, run, stops, repeats... The time the pump runs, it runs...

    Pentair Intellichlor IC15 PP40 Fuse issue

    My trusty SWG has stopped working. A LPS kindly suggested checking the fuse on the PP and bingo! Paying $0.50 when you're ready to shell out $1k doesn't happen often! The manual states using a 1.5a fuse. At the store, looking at the blown one I took in, they believed it was a 2a (not easy to...

    Pentair Master Temp 300 - Short Cycling

    I recently purchased a home with a heated pool & spa. The heater worked fine for a few months, but it's been taking longer and longer to heat the spa. Recently took over 2 hours to go 10 degrees. (84 to 94). When I put the pool in"spa" mode, the blower comes on, the amber heater blinks...

    Programming IntelliTouch / IntelliFlo - Time & Speed Settings

    I'm a new pool owner and my pool builder has been a bit lacking on the education front. I feel like a bonehead, but I cannot figure out how to get schedules that use different pump speeds. I'm not sure where I will land speed/schedule wise, but those particulars aside I cannot figure out what...

    Hello, I have a pool with spa, no automation, no solar. I just upgraded my pump to a multispeed pentair pump, and will be adding solar, salt cell and automation. Since I'm getting my pool resurfaced I had a consultant say we can control our landscape lighting with our pentair system so it's...

    DE filter questions

    Hello TFP! Recently I noticed a lot of dirt on the bottom of my pool. We've had some monsoons recently so I figured it was just extra dirty from that. I got out the manual vacuum and started vacuuming. While vacuuming I noticed debris coming out of the returns, It looks like almost anything...

    easytouch psl4 light control

    I'm in the process of selecting a pool/spa controller. I'm leaning towards the Pentair EasyTouch PSL4 controller however it says it controls 3 color lights.

    Pentair Intelliflo rebuild/restoration

    Hey everyone, I spent my holiday weekend rebuilding my Pentair IntelliFlo pump (PN: 011018). I figured I'd share some takeaways as it was not hard to do and these pumps are not the cheapest, so I think repair should be the way to go (if possible). My pump was manufactured in 2014, I do not know...
