I'm looking into getting a Pentair SWG and IntelliPH, to automate chemical maintenance as much as possible. The installer I spoke with says that to accomplish this I should also get an IntelliChem, as he's saying that without it I won't be able to have the other Pentair products automated. He's also saying that the IntelliChem isn't compatible with my Jandy AquaLink, and that that having the IntelliChem not linked to the Jandy shouldn't be a big deal though, as he's saying it's always powered on anyway.
My questions are:
- Is he right about all of the above?
- If I had a EasyTouch would I still need a IntelliChem if I wanted the salt and acid automated?
