Find the last 3 characters of the Aqua
Connect Home Network’s MAC address (on label beneath base) and
write them down. Now go to any PC
in your home network and open the
web browser. On your browser’s address line, type “mypoolxyz” (where
x, y, and z are the last 3 characters
in the Aqua Connect Home
Network’s MAC address) and then press the Enter key (do not type “www” or
“.com”). The local server should start and your browser will display a page that
is similar to your pool controller. You should now be able to control your Pro
Logic, Aqua Rite Pro or Aqua Plus using this web page. If not, refer to the
manual for alternatives to this step.
Step 6
Setup Web Control
To control your Pro Logic, Aqua Rite Pro or Aqua
Plus remotely through the web, go to
www.aquaconnectweb.com where, after setting up a new user account, you’ll be able to
enjoy a brief trial period. Call 1-800-HAYWARD
to subscribe for continuing web functionality. Be
sure to have your Aqua Connect Home
Network’s MAC address handy when you call.
Refer to Step 5 for the location of the Aqua Connect Home Network’s MAC address. Once an
account has been setup, you should be able to
