Cold water yes but not frozen , caution if water is cold, it might get to below freeze point at nite , this will dammage pool pump and filter and possibly in ground pipes

(moving water will not freeze till 28 degree's)

Pentair prowler 720 starts and stops

1st make sure the unit has no trapped air by briefly tunring upside down , then make sure hoses are not getting tight or snarled , and lastly ck that drive belt along inside housing is tight enough not to slip too easy on drive rolls , it's made from rubber and water chemistry chemicals seems to soften rubber up and make it slip too easy

Hi, When I push the start button on my prowler 720 control box, it automaticlly goes from green to red. When disconnect the prowler from its control box it stays green. Is there something on the prowler...

The power cord pins are numbered, 1 through 4. So are the transformer plug holes (the female pin holes in the "power pack"). For example, if you don't match number 1 to number 1, the green power light on the transformer will light for about 5 or 10 seconds, but the robot will sit there... well, like a powerless robot. Match the pin hole numbers and you have a working robot!
