Troubleshotting from LaMotte Support


            I understand that the WaterLink Connect 2 button on Pool Trackr was greyed out and you weren’t able to run a water test using your Spin Touch.

            I hit the Refresh button of your Google Chrome and then the Waterlink Connect 2 Button is enabled.


            With regards to your Spin Touch SN 06004-2018, it is able to communicate with your computer.

            We have checked its calibration and confirmed that all channels are in range.

            We also ran few tests using WLC2 interface and all test factors are displayed.


            Also, there are no Event Viewer error logs related to WLC2 Service.
