Pool and spa lights on dimmers have gone crazy
I have not been around much as the pool has been working pretty well but a few months ago, I noticed that the lights on the pool are not working correctly.
I have 2 500w lights in the pool and 1 100w light in the spa. They are both on dimmers that work with my Jandy Aqualink RS8. They have been working fine for about 4 years (we really don't use the lights that much) but found that both of them are erratic now. I can from the controller inside the house select any power level - 25 -> 100% and the chances a light will come on are about 1 in 10. From the spa switch, the spa light will come on to whatever power it seems to want, if it comes on. Sometimes the light will be on in the spa, but the OneTouch controller will indicate it is off.
Called the builder and they suggested making sure that it knows the dimmers are present. It does, but still won't work correctly. For the pool, when the lights come on, they both come on, so the bulbs are not burnt out. Everything was fine until this winter when they both went out.
Any ideas on what to check? I think it strange that both relays would go out at the same time....
