Hello - I'm looking for input & advice on this years upgrades to my pool. Everything on the diagram below is already in place except the EasyTouch panel and plumbing for the new solar system. Those will both be new for this season. The electrician is coming to rewire everything once I have the EasyTouch on hand.
Can I get by with the Easytouch 4P, or should I go with the 8P for future expandibility? Buying hte 4P would save me $400-$500 initially. Right now the only power relays I see that I need are for the gas heater and pool light. All the other electrical coming from the EasyTouch panel will be dedicated circuit breakers (autocover, pump, dolphin). In the future I may add some landscape lighting and some laminars to the EasyTouch panel. How many "programs" of the 4P would already be used up with this configuration?
This is how I'd like to program the IntelliFlo VS pump via the EasyTouch:
Speed 1 (10am to 10pm for filtration only)
Speed 2 (when solar activates)
Speed 3 (when gas heater activates)
Speed 4 (for additional filtration when needed)
Any other critiques would be greatly appreciated!
