Just joined as I'm running into a lot of questions about my pool. The pool came with my house and is about 15 years old.
I think I have a lot of the basics down but I'm really intrigued with automation. I didn't see a forum dedicated to automation, so I figured I'd post here and hopefully somebody could put me in the right spot.
My pool is all manual at this point. I have to move two valves in order to go from spa to pool, the heater has to be turned on manually, the timer is separate and old-school, the pump settings are all manually adjusted. I'd love to have this all automated and controlled by a smartphone app!
After looking around I came across this kit which seems like it would do the trick: Jandy AquaLink RS System IQ904-PS | Jandy IQ904-PS
My question to the forum is this: Will it work with my existing equipment?
Purex Minimax 400 heater (not sure if it will work with this)
Hayward pump (not sure the model, but it's new so I'm thinking it will work)
Existing 3 way valves (almost 100% it will work with the included actuators)
Not sure what brand my salt converter is, but I'll get back to that.
Basically, I want to start all the equipment from inside my home and be able to control pool mode vs. Spa mode including heater. Pluses would be if I could adjust the thermostat, pump speed and chlorine.
Help would be totally appreciated!
