    Given a FREE Pentair IntelliFlo VS Pump but it won't work with my AqualinkRS?

    I'm a newbie pool owner and was just told that my local gas company is going to give me - and install FOR FREE - a Pentair Intelliflo 3HP Variable Speed pump (Model #011018). Problem is, I have a Jandy PDA AqualinkRS remote system (am I even referring to this correctly?) that controls everything for my pool and spa.


    Because my Jandy system is old - Aqualink RS and Model PS4 remote (see attached),Attachment 46738 Jandy is telling me that I'm going to need to spend about $600 and upgrade to the IQ20-RS. (So much for my new VS pump not costing me a dime!)


    My question: Is there another (less costly?) brand remote system I can consider instead of the Jandy?


    I've read some of your posts and you are all incredibly knowledgable and I welcome any and all of your thoughts/comments/ideas!

    If you have relays available in your automation you should be able to operate is with an Intellicom.
