    Hayward OmniLogic vs Pentair EasyTouch?

    I'm sure there are happy users of each, but was wondering if there were some clear cut differences between the two systems. My naive take is that Omnilogic is newer and buggier, but with great long-term potential. The Pentair ET has been around longer and has fewer current issues, but maybe lacks the potential of the OmniLogic?

    I'm not in a big hurry as we closed the pool today, but I want to plan for Spring! Other things on the "to add" to the pool pad include: a variable speed pump (controller dependent), a heat pump (less controller dependent), SWG or Stenner (remain undecided).

    Go for the EasyTouch. You won't be disappointed.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.

    Ideally you would want to hear from someone who has used both. I have not. I can tell you the Omnilogic appears to have great potential and hopefully Hayward recognizes it needs work. I think Hayward needs to put more effort in their literature. I also think the app needs alot of work to be more intuitive and less buggy. I'm not sure who is designing their app, but they need an app person to design it not a pool person.
