I am a newbie to this site, and, in general, to pools. We recently bought a house with a pool that had this system already hooked up (the 220, that is).
What I have noticed...sometimes (in fact, usually) there is nothing displayed on the display...not even the "walking dot."
The 2 times I have seen it on, which may be a function of normally not being able to see anything due to the bright daylight, it displayed information that was not meaningful.
Last night, I believe it said something like Pool Pilot 4.2 or something like that. No other readings or flashing or anything.
Tonight, it did not come on when I turned on my pool initially. I shut it off, and turned it back on about 10 minutes later, and this time it came on and just said Pool Pilot Digital.
To add insult to injury, my pool is starting to accumulate the junk on the bottom that produces the greenish "rolling cloud" when you use the broom. I assume this is algae, as I have attempted to sweep it to the drain, only to notice it was back again the next day.
1)Does anyone know what would cause the display to intermittently work/not do anything?
2)Does anyone know the warranty period for the DIG-220? My previous homeowners did not leave anything pertaining to the auto pilot/pool pilot.
I have pool guy coming to take a look and give his opinion on Thursday, but figured I would start here.
I believe the pool is roughly 14 X28, and is 3 feet in the shallow and 6 in the deep. Roman style.
I added 1 gallon of chlorine to it yesterday evening and ran the pool for about 2.5 hours. It ran all day today as normal, but still has the algae.
Any help would be appreciated. I also do plan to call the pool pilot guys.
