Hello everyone! I am a new pool owner and having a Hayward automation system with Aqua Connect installed next week. I currently have a Hayward Ecostart pump but was wondering if and when the Hayward pump is out of warranty and the time comes when I need to change the pump, can I install a Pentair brand pump and still use the Hayward automation system to control it? We will be installing the Hayward AquaPlus with SWG and Aqua Connect to remotely control it from a Smartphone.
I have contemplated waiting on automation but for $1500 I am getting the AquaPlus with SWGC and the Aqua Connect system, and that price includes everything, even installation, so I doubt I will ever find a deal like this again. We were originally going to move wait until we had to change out the pump and then move to a Pentair pump and automation system.
Any idea if we can use the Pentair pump with the Hayward automation in the future?
