    Need wiring advice for new suntoch system


    I'd like some advice on the remodel of my pool. I'm thinking of getting a Suntouch system to control my Pentair 11018 pump and a solar heater (yet to be installed)
    Pool is currently awaiting new coping, tile, and plaster, as well as a new concrete deck. While it waits, I've upgraded the old electrical conduit and pump/filter pad. I ran two conduits. 1 at 1" and 1 at 3/4" . My origional thought was to wire directly to the pentair pump from the main panel using 12 AWG solid wiring and a 20 amp GFCI bkr. (80 foot run) I intend to install a Suntouch system when I add on a solar heater next year. However I now think maybe I should just install the Suntouch system now. My Delima is the electrical from the panel to the SunTouch panel- I couldn't fine any reccomendations - is the Suntouch system actually a sub panel? Do I need a subpanel between the Suntouch and the Main? and finally, would the 20 amp bkr / 12 awg wire be suffecient for the Suntouch panel (I'm thinking not!) Thanks

    It's not a subpanel per se, but will take power from the main panel through a breaker.
    Here's the manual (check page 49).

    Hope that helps.
    The sun panel will run 240V or 120V depending on your system needs (240V pump or 120V).
