I have a PB that installed an EasyTouch 8 controller and an Intelliflow VS-3050 pump. I have it programmed to run once a day at a low speed and another time at a higher speed to make chlorine and run the cleaner.
My question: It does not function in “Service” mode. When in service mode you can not control the pump or anything, completely stops the system. No buttons on the EasyTouch work.
And….the “Countdown” mode or timer mode doesn’t work either. Same as above.
So, if I want to add chemicals and run the system for, lets say three hours, I can’t unless I turn on and off the pump manually. My problem is, what if I have to leave before the three hours are up and I won’t be home to shut off the pump!
Seems to me the EasyTouch should run in a Service and Countdown mode. My PB says it doesn’t work that way because the pump has a wire connected from its controller to the main controller or some BS like that.
Is this true or is he full of it? Why would Pentair build a system that won’t work with their better pumps? It just doesn’t make sence…….
