Ok guy's, this what I got. I have spent the last few weeks going over reviews of pumps both 2 speed and VS and I'm not sure which way to go. My CURRENT price I'm paying for electricity is .10c, but I know electricity is only going to go up so right now 2 speed is the way to go but 2 years from now I could be paying .20 and then I'll wish I had went VS! Ok that aside I think the equipment I currently have is going to restrict me to 2 speed. I took some pictures today of the panel to show what I'm dealing with.
As you can see I don't have another rail for relays. A not sure if my board can handle a new style pump. I've narrowed my pumps down to Pentair Inteliflo. I understand I can use there Intellicom controller to control the comm side of the pump but what about the power side? My understanding is with a 2 speed you need a relay for each speed? Correct? And also a Intellicom (1). But for a variable speed say 8 speeds, do you need 8 relays? And also just 1 Intellicom? Since I got nowhere with Hayward tech as far as my board and also software, that is my next question. Here is what I currently have:
Not sure which one is valid. I remember reading here that 2.65 or higher is needed, but which one main or program? Pentair I have not been in contact with yet due to long hold times. Thanks Guy's!
