Hi. I had a pro install an intelliflo VS pump and an easytouch 8 indoor controller. My system is a pool with spa that overflows into the pool, with a suction side cleaner. I have separate pumps for the spa jets and a waterfall.
The point of this voluntary change was to save energy. I've read through lots of posts here and elsewhere and thought I understood how to make this work with the "features", but I can't get the pump to change speeds the way I was expecting.
I have set various speeds on the pump settings: "pool" at 1850 rpm, "pool high" at 2550 rpm, "pool heat" at 2750 rpm, etc.
I set Feature 1 as "pool high", and the best function for this I think is "generic". ???? Feature circuit 1 is enabled.
What I'm trying to do is run the pool at the 1850 rpm setting through the schedule for, say, 10 hours, and for 4 hours inside that window I want to ramp up the speed to the pool high 2550 setting to let the cleaner do its thing. I set the feature 1 ("pool high") schedule to turn on and off within the longer "pool" period. Isn't this the whole point of the features, to change something while that relay is on?
But when I test this out, what I find is that when the pool comes on, it is at the "pool high" setting of 2550 rpm. SHouldn't this be at 1850, since that's what "pool" is set to at the intelliflo speed settings? And one time during a test, the pool did come on at 1850 rpm but before the scheduled time for the "pool high" to turn on, the speed jumped to 2550 and stayed there even after the "pool high" schedule ended.
Can someone please help and explain how to set this up? It's making me regret this "upgrade" compared to my old Compool 3800, which was nice easy, either on or off.
Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
