My husband and I are in the middle of building our first pool so please excuse me for not using the right terminology - this is all new to me...
We would like to put our pool lights on a dimmer for flexibility. We have 2 500W Pentair lights and a Spa Brite light in the Spa. We also have an EasyTouch system. The pool builder says that the dimmer won't work because of the EasyTouch system.
I understand that the EasyTouch remote won't support the dimmer, but is there anyway to put a dimmer switch on the back end by the equipment pad that would have to be set manually? For example, if we want to dim the pool lights to around 300W each, we would manually set the dimmer at the equipment pad. When we turn the lights on with the Easy Touch remote it turns the lights on at 300W each. If we increase the dimmer at the equipment pad to full strength, the next time we turn the lights on with the remote it turns the lights on at 500W each.
What kind of relay/dimmer switch would I need to get for this scenario to work? Is it something I can do or do I need an electrician?
Thanks in advance for any help!!!!
