Let’s see if anyone has dealt with something similar to this.
So starting at 6am Sunday morning most of the power usage alarms on both my eb832’s started throwing off alarms. All the outlets are showing high wattage alarms. All the outlets are constant wattage items like a calcium reactor, masterflex pump, return, skimmer, and so on. There are even a few open outlets that have nothing plugged into them and they are showing power being used.

I’m not sure what to make of this issue. Just was wondering if anyone has had similar issues with eb832s.
Here’s a few pics to show what I’m talking about

In this pic any outlet that says open does not have anything plugged into it. Yet all of them are showing wattage being used. But the outlets are working like they should be. They turn on and off like they should. Im not sure if this is an update issue, although I updated all the modules yesterday seeing if it would help. Or could this be a hardware issue. I’m just a bit concerned that if it’s showing current going through outlets that have nothing plugged in are the eb832s going to catch on fire or burn up. I’ve looked at both eb832 and don’t see a single issue. They aren’t warm either. Could this be a glitch in the brain, IDK.

Here are a few more pics that show how outlets were running over the last 7 days and on Sunday you can see how the patterns started getting way effed up.

Well thanks for asking. It was a bad ac/dc power block for the ecotech versa.
This morning when I got home I decided to inspect everything closely. Well when I got close to the control panel I could hear a slight buzzing sound coming from behind the board that hides all the wiring and power blocks. As soon as I took the cover off I could smell the burning electronic smell and the buzzing was more of a sizzling sound. So I disconnected the power block and checked fusion. Sure enough all the wattage reading went back to what they should be. So I replaced the power block with an extra one I had and everything had been running like a top sense.

That’s awesome! You still at the same house in Yucippa?
Naw, moved out to perris. The 3 bed house was to small for our needs. My 17yo and 9yo where sharing a room. They were constantly fighting. It got to the point where the 9yo was sleeping in my room and I finally had enough.
