I'm trying to make it as trouble free as possible by adding a swg. Should I go with the Aquapure or one of the more often recommended ones?
Currently we have a circa 1997 RS6 using 3 single speed pumps for pool/spa (.5hp whisperflow), waterfall, and in-floor cleaner. At some point the whisperflow will move to the waterfall and I will get a new 2 sp or variable speed pump for p/s.
After the 3 pump relays the remaining are:
pump pad service light (using solar)
1 Indoor controller and 1 4 function spa side remote
Laars heater (not working, next project)
The easiest and smart thing appears to be adding something like the goldline controller and cell wired into the pump circuit and then I'm done. The $1000 option is the Pro version that can be upgraded to sense and dispense.
Cost: $800 - $1000
Since the automation is Jandy I looked at adding the Aquapure 1400. As SWG's did not exist when I bought the RS6 it likely needs some sort of upgrade to have the integration. Looking at reviews and comments on Jandy SWG's I don't get warm fuzzies so if I don't update the board there aren't any benefits to automation so I might as well use something like the Goldline.
Get the 1400 and upgrade the board/chip/whatever.
Cost: $900 cell + $??? for board.
Benefit: swg plus possibly control it from inside the house with a new pcb. Also might I be able to control digital lights and a new variable speed or 2 speed pump?
Does any of this make sense? If so what do you recommend, or do you recommend something different?
