I'm considering putting in a Pentair Easytouch system for our pool, and am wondering what a fair price is for everything I'd need. Correspondence with Pentair says I need the following Pentair part numbers:
(Above is an Easytouch 8 w/IC-20, one valve, one valve actuator, Screenlogic kit, and wireless adaptor).
I've received prices from both inyopools.com and poolsupplyunlimited.com, and both are pretty close...both around $2550 for everything including shipping.
Conversations I've had with local pool supply stores tells me they've installed them before, but won't install anything that wasn't purchased from them.
My pool builder says they've never put one in, but would only charge me the cost of the electrician, which they say is $400. Note that they would keep the Autopilot DIG-220 and Pentair Intellibrite controller, so they'd be doing a "swap out", essentially. My only concern is they've never put one in, so I'm a little hesitant to go with them on this.
Does anyone have any advice on what a fair price would be from one of the local pool supply stores that HAVE installed these systems before?
