    Post ELI5: Adding Pentair iPhone controller

    We have a newly installed pool system with a Pentair Easy Touch 8 interface and remote system. It works wonderfully. The DSW would like iPhone control. So, TPMers, explain it to me like I am five years old.

    Specifically, what is needed to add iphone control? (Incl. Pentair part #s) For the sake of simplicity, please presume this would be a hard wired install rather than a wireless install.

    It sounds like you want the 520500 iPhone/iPad/iPod touch/PC and Mac Interface Kit. There is a different part number when bundled with the wireless kit.

    I'll give you the easy version.

    1. Call pool guy and ask him if he can do it.
    2. If he can go to step 3.
    3. Write Check.
