    Want to upgrade solar controller

    I recently installed an IntelliFlo 3 HP Variable Speed Pump #011018. My solar array is controlled by an old Compool Lx220 Solar Control Sys.
    I'm considering replacing the old controller with a new SOLARTOUCH 521590 Control Unit.

    Will this controller properly operate the existing valve actuator?
    IG 30,000 Gal.pebble pool w/Pentair CCP-420 cartridge filter; Hayward SWP15 chlorine generator, IntelliFlo 3HP VarSpeed Pump & solar heating array. Have one waterfall; one top skimmer, two bottom skimmers/drains, three returns and Baracuda MX8 Pool Cleaner. Suction line is 2" w/pool equipment pad 60ft from pool. Filter pressure gauge is 6ft above pool water; solar array is about 20ft from equipment pad and approx. same level as pool.

    Valve actuators are pretty much universal. Good idea to find a controller that will interface with your new VS pump too.
