    Hi all, so I finished my DIY trolley yesterday, was all mr bertie big bolls and happy turned on and all worked :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    so my problem is when I turn off by my switch the flo controller turns off and you need to press the controller to turn back on, so if I use a remote (though not installed that yet) it will be pointless as I will need to go and turn it back on by the controller!!!

    Also when using a tap on my pole it sometimes says de (dead end) so I again need to go and reset the setup to get working again, is there a way of bypassing these things or is my controller knackered, if it is I have drilled holes through it to do trolley (and thank you jimmyboots as I used your instructions as a guideline :thumbsup: )

    Hi mate. I dont know how you have wired up, but if you are thinking of using a remote, you will be leaving your manual switch turned on all the time and controlling the system by remote. That's what the remote is for....or am I missing something.
    As far as the controller saying DE, you have to collaborate it with your system. I Dont know what controller you are using though.

    Hunty, when the contoller displays DE, have you turned your tap on while DE is showing to see if the water will flow?

    Thanks for the response, jimmyboots the switch is still needed else you can't turn the controller off, since I fitted the remote it will now pause the flow controller, but with out and using a tap it will say de which the instructions says dead end,
    Tuffers, I did at first but then I had it all working (calibrated as well) and when I turned the tap off it went to de and again I have to press the controller button to fix.

    It does seem to be resolved now I am using remote but would like to fix issue just in case remote unavailable for any reason.

    Thanks for your time lads and the help, any further ideas?
