    TFP trusted source for pentair products?

    Any recommendations on where I can purchase the following products online?

    Pentair IC20 Cell #520554
    Intellitouch Load Center #521213
    Intellitouch Personality i9+3 #521221
    Intellitouch Control Panel #520138
    Intellitouch iS4 #520094
    Pentair Variable Speed Pump #011018

    Any compatible issues with any of these. Think I got everything sorted out. this will be replacing an Easytouch system which took a lightening strike and is acting very strange.

    Feel like I should be able to handle the install myself. Am going to install unions to make the process easier in the future for service.

    thanks,

    I like poolandspawarehouse.com for pretty much everything. Also, if you become a TFP supporter, you will get a discount there too.

    Buying on line is great for the DIYer. Asking someone like me to install them though is like bringing your own chop meat to McDonald's and asking them to cook it, IMHO.

    Why? Support.

    Lets suppose a pump motor dies within the warranty period. Who would you call first? Most likely, the installer. If I didn't sell it, I'm charging for the service call. If I have to supply the parts, I am billing for them.

    A manufacturer's warranty claims center would call in a 3rd party. They'll show when there isn't much else to do because warranty claims calls don't pay all that much.

    A DIYer might get them to sent the parts and do it themselves but they have a life too.

    Just stuff to consider.

    I agree 100% with you. I would be installing this stuff myself.
