My 17 year old AquaLink 2 needs to be retired. At least one relay has failed, the water temp sensor needs replaced, and other mainboard issues have arisen.
Here's my present configuration:
2HP shared filter/spa pump - inline heater
3/4HP booster pump for cleaner
2 actuators to control spa/pool valves
I already saw this thread from 2010-2011 discussing some of the merits of the Hayward OnCommand and Pentair SunTouch. ( budget-automation-hayward-oncommand-vs-pentair-suntouch-t27943.html ).
I'm ok w/ installing something that can only be programmed/accessed from outside, which is why both of these are possibilities. Long-term, we may consider converting to a SWG system, which might point me to the Pentair.
Any recommendations or insights would be greatly appreciated!
