I'm looking to upgrade to a variable speed pump. I recently placed an order for a hayward ecostar per my local pool stores recommendation. Their understanding from the hayward rep is that the iaqualink should have no issue communicating with the ecostar via the rs485 bus. After searching the internet and these forums I've found various discussions that suggest that they don't know how to talk, but most of the sources I've found are several years old. It certainly seems possible that in the last couple years hayward has updated the firmware on the ecostar to speak jandy.
So ... does anyone know the answer? Can an iAqualink controller talk to a Hayward Ecostar via the RS485 bus? Should I cancel my order and get something more compatible?
