Question about Jandy Aqualink Rs4 One Touch Control System Control System

Solar disappeared from display

We had a power outage and the solar panels disappeared from the display. I can get the valve to open properly when I press "Solar" on the main panel, but on the Aqualink it doesn't even show up.

I assume one of the labels (most like the "Extra Aux") has just reset and no longer says solar, but when I try any of these it doesn't switch the solar valve -- although the valve itself opens when the pump comes on.

Diagnostics says the solar sensor is opened -- so I assume it has failed (I've replaced sensors on both the air and pool many times in the past. Sigh). But that doesn't explain to me why I can't get the valve to open (or even show up) on the Aqualink. Or does it?

So... I guess what I'm asking is, will replacing the sensor in the solar panel resolve all of this? (The solar sensor is one I really can't replace myself, since it's on the roof and I'm an old man).

Why is my GL235 solar heater control panel not heating the pool. The heating light is on and the power light is on. What should we do.


If water is flowing thru the panels/collectors, (look to see if the valves are opened to allow water to the collectors) if the water is flowing and it is flowing through the collectors/panels, then the water is being heated!

If you are saying the controller is set for solar operation and the sun is shining, and there is a "Demand" for heat or a "Call" for heat, and the Valve is NOT turning to allow the water to the panels, then you have a problem with either the Hayward/Goldline Controller or the Valve Actuator.

Good Luck

Hello Phil, what is the size of your solar panel? This pump draws 17 watts so, your panel must be 17 watts or greater. Remember a solar panel only puts out full power when in direct sunlight and facing the sun directly. You can read 21 volts but your amperage may not be full and this is why your pump is not running, not enough amps. I would recommend a minimum of a 20 watt panel.

How to setup a diverter valve for above ground


If you want all your water going thru the solar heater before re-entering the pool, you'll need to plumb the end of your filter to the solar heater, then the water exiting from the solar heater would go where the filter hose did go back into the pool. Hope this helps.

the solar panel is just to charge your inverter,if it is charging and the inverter is on it will drain the current the solar panel is supplying to the batteries,this makes it look like it is not charging ,so i advice you to switch off you inverter when charging it,get another set of batteries connected to your solar panel then charge both, let them be separated so that the new one is not in use so that when solar is out you can switch to the other set of batteries

Freeze Protection for Sola Panels


Running water through them all night would prevent them from freezing, but it wouldnt help the cause, as it would be cooling the water and using electricity. When I installed solar panels I used isolation valves, and simple drains that were to be opened to allow the water to drain out. Glycol does not enhance the heat transfer, as plain water is best - it is only for antifreeze. And you dont want anitfreeze in your pool.....
