Our pool build will be starting in a couple of months (after the electric company moves my power line, trees are removed, and current deck is disassembled), and I look forward to starting a construction thread to cover all of that. We have decided on a fiberglass pool with SWG, cartridge filter, VS pump, and gas heater. My wife and kids are in love with the look of Pentair's Magicstream laminars. That being said, my PB can give me a much better price on Hayward products (which is fine, I am not biased in any way to a particular brand).
Because of the savings in equipment cost I am looking at also adding the Hayward Omnilogic system to the build and wonder if it would be compatible with a laminar from a different brand. Activation (on/off, pump control, and valve actions) could surely be incorporated, but what about the lights in them? I have read some strong opinions on the Intellibrite controller and would rather incorporate the light functions into the automation system. Anyone have experience doing so? Is it even possible or is there another brand of Laminar that could work? Maybe there's something I am missing. Thanks all.
