Question about Jandy Laars LX Pool Heater / 400,000 BTU / Natural Gas

1 Answer

We bought a house with a built in pool and no manuals on how to take care of it. There was a pool guy cleaning it, but not doing such a great job. Need to know how to do it all myself.

    Please remember that "pool guys" do a service when cleaning, and they do not handle all aspects of the pool. When you havea weekly service done by a pool proffessional, this does not mean that you dont have to do anything yourself to help with the pool. Us pool guys do the best we can, but when we walk into a home and the water chemistry is bad, and theres algae, and your equipment is leaking, this is your problem unless we are paid to take care of it.

    FYI, no pool guy will help you on this forum if you talk badly about pool guys.

Hire a pool pro to come and give you instruction. Too many variables.

Need to replace old pump.

easy both of them are junk. get a (sta-rite max e click on it) a 1.5 hp should do just fine. the 2hp is to run your spa and not economical to do unless you you have two pumps one for the pool and one for the spa.. if you have a 2 story house with solar you will need a 2hp
used pumps can be tricky so search for your local pool pump repair guy and see if he could build you one, this will save you money and be handy if you need repairs in the future ! ask him how to take care of your pump !

400 watt hps grow light just bought it but wont work!

Please review the following information.

Take care note of the discussion of connecting the ballast to the lamp housing and ensuring the ballast is NOT connected to the mains when the lamp housing is connected or disconnected from the ballast.
Also be aware the system will not allow you to turn it off and then immediately turn it back on again. There is a built-in safety feature to ensure the lamp and ballast are not damaged due to loss of utility power. There is a 10-minute delay built into the system in the event utility power is lost..

The pool guy probably turned off the gas valve.

You are right, the book has an old number but if you you call the Jandy technical support at 800-822-7933 they should be able to help you figure this issue out. By studying this yourself you will be better able to handle future issues yourself but feel free to ask me for more information.

I hope this helps.

What is more important the blue collar job or the white collar job??

They both are as important depending on the circumstances.
A blue-collar worker is a member of the working class who typically performs manual labor and earns an hourly wage. Blue-collar workers are distinguished from those in the service sector and from white-collar workers, whose jobs are not considered manual labor.
SO if you wanted a house built, the blue collar workers would actually build the house, if the white collar workers where not there, the house would still get built.

However, if the white collar workers had not drawn up the plans, then the builders would not know how the house was to be built.
So you need both

Polaris 280 - tank track keeps coming off

I battled with the track falling off for over a season. The pool guys said they fixed it. Tried the previous solution to adjust middle wheel but no luck. My solution was to remove the left wheel and the tank (to get to the screws). The wheel mount allows for minor adjustment but it is also reversible. Turn the mount around and this will extend the wheel base much more. Mine ran for several hours after doing this and so far the track stays on.
