My solar system went in yesterday! But we ran into an issue with the sun touch controller.
I have a pool with no spa. One skimmer and a separate vacuum line, 3 returns and a waterfall feature.
Install included new quad de 60 filter and vs3050 pump.
The plan as it was sold was to be able to run the cleaner for x hours on it's speed and then switch to filtration at a lower speed having solar kick on when needed and available. And then the option to return via returns or waterfall, setting the waterfall up as the aux feature.
What happened though is that when the cleaner is running the return rotates to waterfall which won't work as I am adding a solar blanket and don't want the aeration. So filtrstion mode can use the regular returns but cleaning can't. Something about How the controls assume it's a spa and have to isolate the water flow.
We could just remove the actuator on the return valve but then to enable the waterfall it's a manual turn of the valve (no big deal) and going through a bunch of menus to up the speed to have decent flow for the water fall. What I wanted was simple one button or one button and rotate a valve.
They told me this was their mistake and may not be possible with upgrading to the easytouch...which means more money.
So my question is does anyone know if it is possible (and is so how?) to setup what I want with the sun touch controller?
