My pump can run all day long or sometimes stops mid-day. Also when trying to activate pool pump from the App it doesn't start but I can see valve movement. The cable to control panel has been replaced twice. Final action has been to 'jiggle' the plug at the pump to get it running. Is there a known problem with that female plug connection on the pump control box?

Sorry for the delay, had to gather the info. So here it is:
Controls panel - Pentair EasyTouch Pool/Spa controller 5K42
Pump - Pentair Intelliflo XF VS
Pentair Intellichlor Salt Chlorine Generator Model IC40
Heater - Heatwave Superquit Icebreaker

Still suspect connection from the panel to the pump as yesterday the lock ring nut on the pump side was loose...again...and after tightening it, reconnecting the plug, the pump started up again. I would still like to hear if this is a common occurrence or a 1 off.


Roland,

How about telling us what pump you have??? :mrgreen:

Also what automation system you have..

Thanks,
