Iíve been looking into an EasyTouch system, focusing on the 4P, but just noticed that Pentair has another newish EasyTouch line -- the PL4 (and PS4 for pool+spa):
From what I can see, the main difference is the PL4 doesnít have a built-in load center/breaker slots or the optional built-in IntelliChlor power supply; it does have a bundle that includes the ScreenLogic wireless interface that can be purchased separately for the 4P.
From a quick search on pricing, these seem to be equivalent in cost and functionality:
4PSC-IC40 (520593) + ScreenLogic wireless (522104) = ~$1500
PL4 (522353) + IC40 cell (520555) + IC power supply(520556) = ~$1500
The cost advantage comes if I decide to go with a Stenner pump now but later end up installing an SWCG.
The only disadvantage I can see to the PL4 setup is having 3 boxes on the wall (EasyTouch, load center, SWCG supply) instead of 1, with the resulting conduit between them. Any other differences that Iím missing? Do they otherwise have the same control capabilities?
