So I've noticed a couple times now that when my scheduled pool run time ends for the day the "pool" will still show active. The pump will stop but the chlorinator will still have power and everything and I have to reboot the panel to fix this.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Show us what your pool schedule looks like and other circuits you have scheduled.

It sounds like you may have the pump scheduled to run and not the POOL circuit.

I'll try to grab a screenshot tomorrow as it apparently has dropped off my network again. I do have the pool circuit setup on there and this only happens sometimes.

I should mention I also run nodejs pool controller due to issues with the pentair system that drove me crazy. I attached a screenshot of the nodejs interface (it pulls from Pentair)

Thanks I'm not sure if it's nodejs or pentair but I was thinking pentair but I don't know the detailed workings of what turns the chlorinator on and off.
Is your chlorinator power wired to the Filter/pump relay?

If so the relay will be turned on and off along with the IntelliFlo pump when POOL mode is turned ON or OFF.

I'll have to check but I don't think so. One thing I forgot to mention (not sure it makes a difference) is that the green status light for the pool in on during all this but if I touch it it won't turn off even though the pump is not running.

Post a replay in the discussions on the njsPC repo. We should be able to see everything communicating from the panel. If you don't know how to create a replay we can walk you through it there. Also, are you running IntelliCenter fw1.064? There were a couple of rough spots in the earlier Pentair firmware. Maybe there are some things that we will be able to see wrt the panel keep alives.

Thanks I'll post up over there. Intellicenter firmware is 1.064
