    Replacement for Fafco solar control

    Does anyone have any experience with the GoldLine Aqua Solar Pool Control? I'm looking for something to replace my existing Fafco control panel.

    The main issue I have with the Fafco control panel is that it doesn't give me enough control over the temperature. The panel has two 10K sensors that measure the water temperature at the pump and at the panels, a Fafco-branded Jandy valve, an on/off/auto switch and a slider which lets me select from "cooler" to "warmer". I have an Intermatic timer for my pump but there's no connection back to the Fafco.

    The GoldLine looks interesting in that I could control the pump for daytime heating and nighttime cooling. Also I'm trying to stay in the sub-$500 price range if possible.

    If you do it yourself you can find the Pentair SunTouch under 4500 online and that will do your solar and upgrade you to automation if you don't have it now.

    I went through the Pentair manual online but I didn't find any indication that the system can handle the cooling function.

    However, I like the digital timer and the expandability....
