I'm trying to lock down all the pool equipment next week. Right now I have a Jandy PDA 6 on my back porch. I want to make sure I don't immediately fill up all the available channels in my brand new system. I've never had a Pool Remote, so I don't really know how many things I will need/want to control. At the minimum I want:
All Pool controls: Pump Speed (its a Jandy Variable), Sweep, Heater, Timers for the equipment, etc
All Spa Controls: Pump, Heat, Jets. It sounds like the venturi is just a tube that sucks more air the faster the pump runs. At the very least I'm going to install a ball valve to control the air flow a little
LED Lights: We are going to have 4 Jandy Lights (2 Pool, 1 Spa on the Reef Step, 1 Spa in the Spa. I'd like the option to control all lights individually or at the same time (sounds like that might be 4 channels)
Landscape Lights: I don't have a system picked out yet, but it will have a couple dozen lights
Remote Control for the Gas Tikis. This may be too expensive.
Laminar Water Jets
Sprinklers ? - This seems unnecessary
So, how many channels do you guys/gals have?
What do you control with your pool remote? Might as well list the brand you have too.
