It is a calcium build up
get a liquid cleaner that removes calcium and scrub it on the panels
just a side note here
I used to worry about the problem as it was affecting all of my garden solar lights until I bought a small solar panel from JAYCAR and placed it well up in the air and away from any spraying water
to my dismay it also went white but it still charges the battery enough to run solar lights all night to next morning
I think that the panel works from ultra violet rays that penetrate the white film so making the panel parts work
for roof panels that charge to the utility grid, the loss from dust and bird droppings is less that 1% so these companies that charge big dollars to clean the panels are in fact close to rip off people get more information by googling for sites that have cleaners to assist you

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool

Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

SunForce 2500w pure sine wave converter add on

Mixing different AH rated batteries, different ages of even the same type battery is a bad idea. The new batteries will be effectively reduced to the equivalent of your worst battery.

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.

My solar lights will not stay on they will blink and go off.I live in Florida SUNSHINE most of time. These are from Home Depot and are Hampton Bay mfg.

... and they are how old???

In my experience, where I live to the North of you, where I work in a camping resort, where our seasonal campers make use of the same devices from the same supply and source), I have found the batteries in these devices are good for NO MORE than two seasons with little exception.

You might have other troubles, like the day-lite sensor is cloudy or being impacted by some other light source or the panels are cloudy and will not charge the battery fully. Read on please.

The way these things work, generally speaking, the solar panel part of your light actually recharges a rechargable battery in the battery pack. These batteries take a beating - fully recharging and fully discharging EVERY DAY. You can probably replace these batteries with new RECHARGABLE batteries to extend the useful life of your lights. Did I mention the lights are always subject to the full heat of your beautiful sunny days as well as the full fury of your dreadful rainy season? BTW, we visit often and love Florida.

I hope this information helps you.

Thanks for using

Broken impeller part ?

Keep in mind that the head rate for this pump has been calculated at about 3 1//2 ft high. If you try to go to the garage roof you will exceed the head rate and extremly so if the garage is not on top of the pool and cause your motor to overheat due to it trying to pump the heavy water past its capacity
It would initially work but burn up sooner than later
you woul be better off building a solar type box with plexi glass and wrapping x amount of feet of smaller diameter black hose.
You will need to t down ( on the inlet and outlet ) your pool hose to the smaller one so that the water will slow down inside the box to accumulate the suns rays At no time should you exceed the height restriction

Hose keeps popping off of sunheater panel

Panel is most likely creating too much back pressure for the pump. The solar panel creates a major restriction in the flow of water, which is why the hose keeps poping. You can try a couple of thing,

1. The panel should be installed after the filter. Sequence should be Pump to filter to panel to pool.
2. Install a longer hose from filter to panel, will reduce pressure. Or install a diverter valve which you can control the amount of water going to the panel, sending some straight to the pool.
3. If you roof mounted the panel and it goes from the Pump to filter to a booster pump to solar panel, you will need to install a check valve to reduce the back pressure.
