    Pentair Intelliflo #011018 - Rotate the control panel?

    My buddy is about to upgrade to a Pentair Intelliflo #011018.

    Problem is that, the location where the pump will mount, is very very tight (other water feature pumps, associated plumbing, etc) and, the way you would have to stand over the pump in order to operate the pump controller, the controller display will be upside-down and thus will be very difficult to read as you look down upon it to program it, etc.

    Can the controller body / display on these pumps be disassembled and re-assembled, with the top half of the controller being rotated 180 degrees? The drawing below from the manual makes it ***seem*** like it may be possible. I'm looking at where the drawing calls out "Note: Do not remove these screws":

    I already have one of these pumps at my house, so if no one has experience with this, I might take a crack at it

    I don't know if it's possible, but it all depends on how the display board is mounted.

    In theory that is possible, but in practice you would need to create some custom adapters to get it to work. You will presumably also void your warranty.

    At one time I could have sworn I saw an adapter cable where you could mount the drive remotely from the pump, but I can't find it now.
