  1. Pentair Easy Touch temp won't calibrate

    How far off are the sensors?
  2. Pentair Easy Touch temp won't calibrate

    After you adjust the temp to the number you want in the calibration menu, are you hitting "select"?
  3. pump not turning over

    Is there a GFI integrated into the filter pump unit?
  4. I would test the water for salt at a couple of different places. You may even want to invest (less than 100 dollars online) in a salt tester. Most will come with a test packet that you can calibrate with a known level of salt to keep your unit accurate. My guess is that you have too much salt in the pool if you added any. Keep in mind that: Salt does not evaporate. The only way you lose salt is when water is taken from the pool. Splashing, pumping out, etc. NOT evaporation though. If you system is running fine then all of a sudden it needs salt, something is up. If you truly need salt, you would only need 10# or 20# AT THE MOST, unless of course you just pumped alot of water out of the pool.
  5. Jandy 1400 aqua pure issues

    Unfortunately, the sensor is bad, and needs to be replaced. Hopefully, you are still under warranty
  6. AquaLink Timer Issues

    Have you verified the correct time (am/pm) with both the "time of day" and the programmed on-off time of the pump(s)?
  7. Hooked up filter backwards

    You need to take the filter apart to see if you have damaged the grids (if it is a DE filter) or (the element if it is a cartridge).
  8. Intellichlor IC40 Problem

    Which lights?
  9. Lot of air in pump basket

    Is this a variable speed pump? It is not uncommon for a basket to not completely fill up on a variable speed pump.
  10. SWG Upstream of Pool Heater

    Everything in your post is accurate. Having said that, just relocate the cell to where it should be yourself, or pay to have it done. Sometimes its not worth the stress of trying to pursue problems with an old install... Unless of course you're up for it.
  11. Compool control boards

    See if you can return the sensor and get a TS5L sensor instead. That is the one you need, and is still in production. If your guy doesn't want to accept the return of the first sensor, I would say that if you gave the parts guy all the numbers you gave in your post when purchasing the first sensor, he should have known the sensor he sold you wouldn't work.
  12. Need Help Identifying Valves

    Valves From left to right: Valves 1-3 controls return or water returning to pool from filter /heater (note: valve 3 is main return to pool). Valve 4 controls where water is sent, back to pool (left side) or back to spa (right side). Valve 5 controls where water is drawn from. From pool (to the right) or from spa (left). Valves 6,7 and 8. controls water drawn from pool. (guessing) skimmer, main drain, vac line? Pipes on the left: small one, not sure. Looks like an unused conduit. Larger one is the cleaner output back to the pool, or rather to the cleaner head. Not being there in person to confirm this, the above is a "best guess"
  13. No Flow And Cell Reversing On Jandy Aquapure 1400

    My experience It appears, through my experience, that Jandy is having difficulty keeping the internals of the sensor dry. They cant seem to find an epoxy that can tolerate the hot cold cycles that the sensor goes through to determine the three variables necessary to give the unit accurate information, those being temperature, salinity, and flow.
  14. Inground pump timer?

  15. Salt Cell not chlorinating

    I can't tell what kind of quality or longevity you can expect from that cell. The OEM cell that comes with that unit can be expected to produce chlorine for about 5 years or 10,000 hrs.
