Part # 520272
Dimensions 8.25" L x 2.25" W x 1.25" D
This is a temperature sensor for the Pentair Intellitouch and Easytouch systems. The diameter of this sensor is 1/4" diameter with 20' of 2 wire bare wire.
The 521590 Pentair Solar touch is not working properly. The system status light is green (Normal) but I can not adjust the pool temperature. I feel that I need to replace the temperature sensors, the water sensor is connected to a pipe and the roof solar sensor is not connected to anything just laying there on the roof. Do I need to replaced the unit or both sensors?
Hi. If you're unable to increase or decrease the temperature, the sensors may not be the issue. Since the system does not detect an issue with the sensors you can manually test the sensors using the info on page 24 of the SolarTouch Solar System Installation/User Manual. You can replace both sensors if they're bad.
On Pentair 520272 Temperature Sensor when do I know when is defective and if is, do I need to replace both, the solar and the water sensors?
Hi. You can test ohm resistance or compare the readings from what the sensor is registering to the actual temp.
Is this temp sensor 10K ohms?
Yes, the 520272 temp sensor is 10k ohms.

Pros: It works
Cons: Proper drill size?
Exact replacement for my Pentair EasyTouch system. Pentair does not state the drill size in the instructions. It's assumed for replacement only in an existing hole. In my case, I was moving the sensor. A 1/4" drill is too small and 5/16" is a hair too big, but it still sealed fine. It would be nice to know in the instruction what size drill Pentair recommends for a new install.
