Question about Pentair Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Pential Easy Touch Pool/Spa remote says the water temp is 225 degrees F. The Spa will not be allowed to heat up because the system is thinking the water temp is 225 degrees. Seems to be a sensor issue. Took the panel apart and checked the wires going into the water sensor circuit. Everything looked fine. No luck

Our heater will not heat past 78 degrees. How do we get it to heat above that. Is there a factory set temp control problem? Thank you


Yes there is, but only a service technician is allowed to adjust it. However, the fact that you are only reaching 78 degrees makes me think something else is wrong.

Your bypass valve is probably the culprit. It is located where the Pipes enter the heater. It has a spring on it that is thermally activated to open and close. This allows the right amount of water to pass through the heater. Too much water and the water will not heat up. Too little water and the heater will vibrate and howl!

You could also have a faulty thermostat.

Also, always use a heater blanket when trying to heat a spa or pool. It will save you lots of money and time! And they are cheap!

My heater is heating to 100 degrees as indicated on the heater, but the actual temp in the spa is much less, usually 10- 15 degrees less


Press menu, scroll to settings. There should be a choice labeled "calibrate". You can change the temp reading here.

Have pentair easy touch controls just installed new water temp sensor. spa is 88 degrees but master temp heater shuts off because it reads 104. what should i check? the thermistor/


If the Easy Touch is reading the correct temperature, but the heater is not - you need to double check the temperature of the pool water with a standard pool thermometer.
Other things to consider:
1) The water is traveling too slowly through the heater. If the water is heating too quickly, then it will shut it off. If it takes a while for this to occur, then this would not be the issue.
2) Thermostat/thermistor is incorrectly reading the temperature of the water prematurely shutting the system down.
Make sure you really are checking the temperature of the water and matching this temperature up with one of the two readings that you are getting. Don't just take the word of the displays on either unit.

Turned the temp for the spa up to 100 but it heated the pool too!?!


If you have automatic valves that switch over to run the spa, make sure that the valves turn completely to where they are supposed to be. Normally it will be about 180 degrees from where they are when in pool mode. If you have to change the valves over manually, make sure they're in the proper position. The only time this can happen is if the valves are not in the right position allowing the heated water to return to the pool. The thermostat on the heater will heat the water to the prescribed temperature no matter how you have the valves set. So if you place it on spa mode, it will heat whichever body of water that is flowing through it to that temp. If you have an automation system, double check the valves. That is probably where your problem lies.

Water Temprature read 126 on heater and will not fire. Pool temp @ 72 degrees. Heater set for spa @ 101 degrees. SR400NA Sta-Rite Heater


This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

Minimax pool heater cuts out at 91 degrees when remotely set for


Turn the temp set knobs on the front of the heater all the way up do both pool & spa temp.
If that doesn't help flip the selector switch on the front of the heater the pool temp. This switch doesn't control what heats up Pool or spa it just selects the heater on and which thermistat to use
