We've signed a contract to do some remodeling work on our pool/spa, and plan to also upgrade the pump and add automation at the same time.
The pool contractor has suggested the Jandy PDA-PS4 and a Pentair Intelliflo VS Pump.
When we moved in, the pool had a brand new Pentair Mastertemp 400K heater. It also has an older DE 60Sq filter, and a Polaris 280 pool cleaner with booster pump.
My questions are:
1. Are these decent automation and variable speed pumps?
2. Can we easily add an integrated (to the automation system) SWG later? I was thinking Jandy PLC1400, but it is not clear from all the searches what is needed.
3. Would it be difficult to add iPhone/Android control for the automation later?
