    Welcome to TFP!

    If you are getting a Pentair IntelliFlo pump, you should get a Pentair brand automation system. Matching the brand of the pump and the automation system will insure that the automation system knows how to control the pump.

    The Sun Touch system is fairly basic, but does everything you might want for a simple setup. If you have lots of other things you want to control, for example landscaping lights, you might well want to move up to an EasyTouch or IntelliTouch.

    The number of skimmers and returns is very flexible and essentially a personal choice. I like one skimmer and two or three returns, which others I know get two or three skimmers and eight to ten returns.
