1. Regarding your excuse for a digital flow meter. "These are purely for the geek in me." I can relate. Seeing how plagiarism is the highest form of flattery. If you don't mind, I'm going to steal that line, the very next time I take a "ribbing" for all of my pool-related electronic "gadgets" and wizardry. All kidding aside though... Usually nothing wrong with it so long as you keep in mind that electronics and software sometimes fail so don't lean too hard on the toys. Always continue to back up all of that electronics with good solid "manual" testing and chemical management.
2. And coz you are a "geek". Good call on the upgrade from the i5 to the i8. I won't go into detail at this time (you got enough on your plate), but just trust me, you will find many "geeky" uses for those IntelliCenter Power Relays. I'm just not quite sure why your first posting of equipment, calls out an i5P (and you mention NO SPA). Then your last post with an equipment posting calls for the i8PS. Did you decide to add another "body" of water somewhere that I missed?
Lastly, when all is said and done. Please take a minute to give a review on the Flowvis Digital FV-D. A couple of us have been eyeballing that thing for a while now. I would really like to incorporate that "feed" into my current automation "mix"...
Indeed, went out and did all the measuring. Everything is plus to 7 to 8 inches of what the plans say. My daughter also is having to learn patience in the process.Let the MUD begin!!!
You know the drill...........as soon as they say they are done go out there with the plans and a tape measure. Is it long, deep, wide, etc enough? Add about 8" for the steel, shell, and plaster. NOW is the time to fix.
A quick question or 2For this update, after one failed inspection because they forgot to put water in the pipes we are now approved and the gunite crew will be out next week for the greatest super soaker fight ever!
