    Please help, we cannot afford the pool contractor...

    Hi

    I just finished my pool....

    but i want to get it auto with easytouch, we invest too much money on it and cant pay what our contractor asks for it (automation)

    so, i came here looking for answers, becouse pentair guides are a little confusing and does not gives all the info

    This is what i have installed:
    1 WHISPERFLO connected to all (caretaker, hydrojets from spa, 3 fountains, etc)
    1 MASTERTEMP 400
    7 color changin amerlite lights:
    - 2 at the pool
    - 1 at the spa
    - 3 at the "3 fountains"
    - Caretaker

    So basically i want to do it wireless with the wireless controller, and control lights (3 diferent controls, 1 for spa, 1 for pool, and 1 for fountains), jets, heater and caretaker

    Can someone guide me what to buy, ie easytouch 4 or 8, additional auxs? do a i need additional relays?, how many actuators, etc

    If i buy it and i installed i know i can save a lot of money, here in Mexico, pool contractors are too expnsive.

    i have atteched some photos, tell me if you need more.

    Saludos!

    Wow, I've never seen a pool with a continuous negative edge like that. Is there a catch basin or trench that goes all the way around? I'd love to see construction pictures of how it was done.

    I'm afraid I can't help on the automation front but you may receive more help if you post (or ask the moderators to move this) in the Everything Else section which includes automation: everything-else-f82.html

    Good luck and hopefully someone will be along who can answer the automation questions for you.
