    Question: Hayward heatpro with pentair automation

    Hi,

    I'm new here. I've been perusing the forum, and am finally ready to post my first question.

    I've had a pool for almost 4 years.

    24x40 pond shaped vinyl in-ground pool. 8ft deep. Approx 30,000 gal
    Pentair 1.5 hp SuperFlo single speed pump
    Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 chlorine generator
    Hayward HeatPro HP21104T heat pump
    Pentair Clean & Clear Plus 420 cartridge filter
    Pentair IntelliBrite 5G without controller
    Waterfall with Intermatic PE24VA actuator to control flow

    I've been considering upgrading my SuperFlo pump to an IntelliFlo VS or VF pump. The SuperFlo has been loud this summer, and I'm afraid it's bearings are going. If I upgrade, I might a well get an efficient variable speed pump.

    While I'm upgrading, I thought I would look into more automation, such as EasyTouch or IntelliTouch, to control my pump, heater, light and waterfall.

    The pump and light are both Pentair, so that should work fine. I believe the waterfall actuator is compatible with Pentair systems as well.

    However, I'm not sure if the heat pump is compatible with the EasyTouch or IntelliTouch systems. The Hayward documentation says the heat pump is compatible with the ComPool controller, which I believe is the old Pentair automation system. Pentair sells a ComPool to EasyTouch upgrade kit, but I can't find documentation that says the Hayward HeatPro is compatible with either EasyTouch or IntelliTouch.

    The only automation I have now is I can controller the waterfall actuator and pool light (on/off) via my Insteon home automation system.

    Any help would be appreciated, as well as suggestions for alternate automation.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Essentially all heaters are compatible with all automations systems. The automation system just needs simple on/off control, and that is always provided by the heater.
