Hey, everyone! I think this is my first post here at TFP, but I've been lurking for quite some time, even before I registered.
I'm not a pool rookie, but I'm a pool automation rookie. I have a 10K gal AGP.
What I want to do is add a Jandy 125K heater this year, SWG NEXT YEAR, and automation this year.
For the automation, it appears that this is what I need:
1. Jandy RS-P4 AquaLink RS OneTouch
2. Jandy 6613AP PureLink Standard Power Center
3. Jandy 6891 AquaLink RS All Button wired panel
Here's my question:
Why in the heck do I need #3? Aren't the controls on #1? I feel like I'm being forced to buy a $350 part that I don't want. My pool is convenient. I don't mind walking to the OneTouch to change settings/turn things on/off.
None of the pictures of the RS-P4 online are great, so it is difficult to read what is actually done there.
Do I really need the wired panel?
