I'm a first time pool buyer and I'm starting the research. One thing I am planning on doing later on after the pool is stable is automate as much as possible. I'm away a lot. My builder uses Hayward exclusively, but I plan on adding mostly Pentair upgrades later. Do the VS pumps across mfg (or at least Hayward and Pentair) use the same communication protocol? It looks like RS485 for Pentair in the manuals. But I can't find the info on Hayward pumps. And that is just the physical layer. The control protocol is a whole different topic.
I want to know if the Hayward VS pump may be controlled at variable speed by a Pentair Intellitouch later on?
