Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I dropped the lid to the pentair 320 chlorinator. The rubber gasket fell out and I don't know where it goes nor does it fit inside the lid. Do the gaskets go inside to screw on lid or somewhere else? Could it have possibly got stretched out? PLEASE HELP!!! The chlorinator leaks without the gasket.

SOURCE: change rubber gasket

Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

SOURCE: Black mold growing on rubber

The solution? Plain old bleach.
Scrub rubber seal on door. Run the bleach through the machine once a month to keep clean.

Keep door open after each wash to ensure that it dries out properly.

I dropped the lid to the pentair 320 chlorinator for inground pools. The rubber gasket fell out and I don't know where it goes nor does it fit inside the lid. Do the gaskets go inside to screw on lid...

Yes, the o-ring does swell up. I am not really sure what causes that, but the only fix is to replace it. It goes inside the cap. Only use teflon or silicone based lube on it.

Pentair 320

There is a term out there that is called "chlorine lock". It happens when the cyranuric acid level is excessive. Cyranuric acid (Cya) is also known by the names "conditioner" and "stabilizer".
Although it has not been scientifically verified, many pool pros including myself have run across chlorine lock, although it is very rare. An extensive study was done by Occidental Petroleum back in 1995 that took Cya levels to over 3000 ppm with no unusual effect on pool chemistry. (normal is 30-90 ppm)
However, it cannot be denied that chlorine can remain at high levels for weeks on end during the hottest times of the year with no additional doses.
The 320 chlorinator has been a staple in the industry for decades and has been proven very predictable and reliable.
Have your Cya level checked at a pool supply. If excessive, drain off some water and refill. Chlorine neutralizer is available at any pool supply to alleviate the high chlorine issue very quickly.

My salt water system seems to be working but no green light. I pushed the reset button but still no light. Also I want to boost as it has rained. I would appreciate it if u know what is going on....

Here's how I check if my system is generating chlorine... Light or no light...

I take a sample right out of the chlorination/ pump exit fitting in my pool and test for chlorine level. It should be out of the chart reading... If using strips, should be the highest reading or darker... If using OTO drops (Orthotolidine). The color should be dark yellow or 5.0 or higher... If you know the chlorinator is working and generating chlorine, the green LED light may be burnt??? You would need to very handy at electronics to be able to replace the LED light inside.. If you don't want to hassle with the light and testing.. The 8110 model is on sale at Wal-Mart (on line only) for $149.00 with a $50.00 gift card.. Just like paying $99.00.. Great deal.. I'm buying one for spare.. Cheaper than 1 year worth of chlorine!!! As for the boost cycle.. If your level is low and not too hot where you live, may not need to boost??? Good luck and hope I helped???

CL-200 lid won't lock into place because it's to tight.

Gasket in lid is swollen from chlorine gas over time, check to see if you can tuck back in and lubricate it with a silicone grease. if to swollen, replace gasket.

I have a Pentair 320 automatic chlorine feeder. I have filled it with chlorine tabs, but I am still getting a zero reading for chlorine when I test my pool water. Can it be plugged?

It can be but probably isn't. A three inch tab is meant only to maintain your chlorine level. You must first bring the chlorine level up to specs, by adding either liquid or powdered chlorine, than add one or two tabs a week to hold it at that level.

Pentair 320 (inline) clorine not disolving

Three possible solutions, and I have personally made use of all of them with great success.

1. A common reason why the flow of water through the Pentair 320 canister is insufficient to dissolve the chlorine tablets is that the pool filter is dirty or just too old with ingrained sediment. If your pump pressure is continuously running high then this usually indicates a dirty or old filter that is making it difficult for the pump to get an adequate flow of water through the chlorinator. If thoroughly cleaning it makes no difference, treat yourself to a new filter; it's often an immediate fix and the pump pressure drop may amaze you. Old filters that have served their time are deceiving. They may look clean but the fine sediment trapped in their fibers can seriously degrade performance downstream in the chlorinator.

2. Another trick to help SEE what is going on is to replace the short black feeder hose to the Pentair 320 canister with PVC tube, 5/8" outside diameter, 1/2" inside diameter, and a short piece of Pyrex tubing inserted into the middle of the PVC tube to serve as a clear sight glass. PVC tube is rated 100 psi and is readily available at just 50 cents a foot at local hardware stores. Pyrex tube with an outside diameter of 1/2 inch (13 mm) can be bought cut to length for about a dollar per inch from EBay sellers. I also strongly recommend swapping this new feed tube assembly to the UPPER inlet of the chlorinator and moving the plug from there down to the lower inlet. See the attached photo.
You will need an 8 inch and 3 inch length of PVC tube, and a 4 inch length of Pyrex tube. Insert the ends of the Pyrex tube 1/2 inch into each piece of PVC tube with some Goop glue smeared all around the outside of the Pyrex ends. Do not get any Goop inside the Pyrex tube, and do this as quickly as possible, rotating the Pyrex as you insert it into the PVC to ensure that the Goop forms a complete seal. Then let it set, preferably for 24 hours.
Now you have a new feed tube 14 inches long in total, 3 inches of which is the Pyrex sight glass. Just take the unions and spring off the original black hose and transfer them to the new PVC tube, putting the spring on the 8 inch piece of PVC tube. The 3 inch piece of PVC tube should be at the top of the feed where it enters the Pentair control valve.
You will now be able to observe the rate of flow of bubbles in the Pyrex tube (transparent PVC tube soon becomes opaque because of the chlorine but Pyrex remains clear) and know if water is proceeding up the tube and then cascading down over the chlorine tablets. Adjust the Pentair control valve to check if the bubbles speed up and slow down.

3. Lastly, when you open the Pentair 320 to insert new chlorine tablets, the water will normally drain down and out of the canister. IMPORTANT - When you restart the pool pump, keep the cap OFF the canister but have it ready. Assuming you have the Pentair control valve set above 0 (zero) flow, you should soon see water starting to flow through your new PVC feeder tube and then entering and rising up in the canister. When it gets past the top of the chlorine tablets screw the cap on until it feels firm but not cranked hard. If it leaks a little, tighten until that stops. Now you have got rid of that potential air trap that can prevent water rising to completely cover the tablets. Do this EVERY TIME you add new tablets to the canister.80edc77f-aab6-45be-854b-dcd213e89f9c.jpg
