I have a Pentair controller down by the pool equipment which I use to control my chlorinator, VS pump, and paramount in-floor cleaning system.
I have a wired Easytouch 8 function control panel in the house which enables me to control things from there.
I use Screenlogic2 on a PC to configure the system.
My problem is this.
When there is a power cut to the house, the Pentair controller seems to lose what time it is, and goes back to 00:00 (i.e. midnight or midday). Strangely, it does not lose any of the program settings, such as when the filter comes on and off, the VS pump flow rate settings, and when the cleaner comes on etc. But with the time all wrong, obviously they now come on at the wrong time (i.e. the noisy in-floor cleaner comes on in the middle of the night!).
Is there a separate backup battery for the program settings and another backup battery somewhere for the clock?
I've looked in the back of the Easytouch control panel in the house and there doesn't seem to be any batteries in there.
What am I missing?
Why does a power outage affect the clock and not the programs on the Pentair system?
How can I fix this so that the clock/time is not affected by a power cut?
