Hey there! We finally signed the dotted line and our pool build starts as soon as permits clear!
Since this is my first pool and my first pool build (scary), I have a dilemma that I need some experienced expertise in. My pool will have 3 scuppers and 2 bubblers. I am getting the iAquaLink-PS4, which will control 4 items (pump, polaris, LED lights, and scuppers). The standard way my pb plums bubblers is with the rest of the returns, i.e., if the pump is running, the bubblers are going. Besides this raising PH, I just don't want that. There is a valve at the equip-pad that I can turn on/off the bubblers, so that is good, but I could instead run the bubblers WITH the scuppers. i.e., scuppers/bubblers on, or both off (controlled with iLink). Of course I can still manually control bubblers and shut them off so just the scuppers are on, but I would not be able to have just bubblers on.
The Question: should I connect the bubblers with the rest of the returns, or connect with the scuppers.
note: it is $500 more to upgrade to the PS6 and add the actuator so I could control each independantly )I think), but I am already $4000 over budget because of 'little' $500 upgrades and changes... so the buck stopped.
