    Intelliflo/hurclon vx7t connection

    Hi all, apologies if this is in the wrong section. I,m a noob at pools and need some advice from a brains struss. We are about to install an above ground pool fitted with a Pentair Intelliflo pump, coupled with a Hurclon VX7T SCG. I have concerns that this pairing will not achieve the best results as the variable speeds of the pump cannot be activated by the VX7T. Does anyone know how the connections would be made? I have read various web documents and install manuals, but nothing I read seems to identify any workable solution. Do I need to further purchace a intellicomm II adapter or intellitouch controllers. Appreciate anyone's assistance. Kind regards, Bruce (Brisbane, Australia)

    Intelliflows all have timers built in. You should not need anything. It can turn on at speed A at a given time, jump to B later, fall back to a for a while and jump to speed C or D if you like.

    If you want to be able to control the pump, beyond simply turning it on and off, from another controller, you either need an IntelliComm II or a control system that supports Pentair data communication protocol (mostly only the Pentair controllers do).

    While what Jason suggests is true, I really don't see a need with an AGP.

    HI GUys,

    Thanks for the quick response.. My concern was that the VX7T only has a single power socket to control the pump power. Hence the pump would only recieve power when the SCG supplied it. Hence it might not start unless a speed button was pressed.. I'll keep researching, maybe I should go for all one brand products.. Cheers

    The pump should have power at all times to be in a happy place. Save the port on your home automation.
