I am installing equipment for a brand new pool, tech guys went out to set up. But they did not specifically label each circuit (I.E...waterfall, spa...etc) My question is how do I go back to name them correctly?

David,

Does the system have ScreenLogic??

If not you can do it from the little 3" display..

Basically the system comes with preset names.. Such as Aux 1... This is known as the Circuit.. it also has a Circuit Name.. This is what YOU call it.. it can be anything you want.. As an example if the Aux 1 controls the pool light, it would make sense to name it .. Lights.. But you could name it "Dark".. It does not care what you name it.. Circuit Functions are generally best left set to Generic.. except for things like special lights like the IntelliBrite etc.

You have to go into the menu, setting and the change the Circuit Name of Aux 1 to "Dark".. :mrgreen:

Thanks,

Jim R.

I don’t believe it does.... but you described exactly what I remember seeing with the 3” display and the preset six names...I’m about an hour away from the job site. I’m heading back and gonna take a picture and send it.
Thanks so much! What a relief to get some help!🥵
