My wife and I are just about to buy a new house with an old pool. The pool is ~15K with an attached spa. It appears that all of the equipment is original to the pool circa 2001 or so ... one pump is newer but still OLD.
I have prior experience with Jandy equipment circa 2007. Based on my research to date all of my knowledge is COMPLETELY outdated and there doesn't seem to be a recent thread on automation equipment recommendations (yep ... I'm starting a religious war). My question is this - What automation platform would you recommend given the following:
Existing pumps will stay in place until I can afford to replace them with variable speed pumps.
Existing heater will stay - may add a heat pump to extend the season at some point.
Access the system from iPhone or Web
upgrade to LED lights
No plans for salt water.
I've looked at Jandy ithingy ... Hayworth ... Auetils ... There is a lot of information out there, I'm hoping a good ford / dodge / chevy conversation will ensue to narrow down my choices.
