    intelliflo 220 wiring to an easytouch 8

    I have the easytouch 8 and the intelliflo vs. Can the pump's 220 be wired into the load center as an available 20 amp breaker or should it run back to the main panel as a stand alone run.

    IMPORTANT: When connecting the pump to an automation system (IntelliTouch, EasyTouch,
    SunTouch and IntelliComm), continuous power must be supplied to the pump by connecting it
    directly to the circuit breaker. When using an automation system, be sure that no other lights
    or appliances are on the same circuit.

    Does this mean a dedicated breaker in the load center? I am pretty sure that this is the purpose of the 150 amp capacity but want to make sure.

    Yes you can use a double pole breaker in the loadcenter to power the Intelliflo.

    Is that a home depot purchasable breaker or a special pentair one?

    You can find them at Home Depot, though I forget which style it is you look for. Note exactly how one of your current breakers looks and find the matching series at Home Depot.

    I don't have any easytouch breakers to compare to. I don't think it comes with any do they?

    Check inside the power center cover. I believe there is a breaker compatibility list there.
