    Intellicenter Heat Pump Automation

    The TFP community saves the day again!! despite very poor and/or no documentation, and a not helpful call to Pentair, my heat pump is being controlled by my IntelliCenter. I ended up wiring straight from the 'Z' and 'Y' terminals on my AquaCal to the 'GAS HEATER' terminal on my Intellicenter...

    Intellicenter Heat Pump Automation

    thanks for the quick response... I just got off the phone with Pentair. He said it's possible to connect the 2 units, but confirmed it wouldn't be through the RS-485. He mentioned I need to go from the AquaCal to an Intellicenter Relay and from there to the Solar relay... Then there is an...

    Intellicenter Heat Pump Automation

    Hello all! I recently had an AquaCal SQ225 Heat pump installed... I asked the installer about connecting it to my Intellicenter and he didn't know if it could be done. The instructions reference the EasyTouch and IntelliTouch, so I assume it can work with the IntelliCenter too. I attempted to...

    Intellicenter Wiring Question

    You guys are awesome... Thanks for the quick response. The electrician wired the pump and SWG. I thought I had seen it that way online, so I assumed it was right... I'll fix it first thing! As for the 60 amp breaker... I'm getting a aquacal sq225 installed soon. The blower is a silencer...

    Hello all! I just got my Intellicenter up and running (thanks the discussions in this forum), so far I'm loving it! I had an electrician run power to it, but now I'm wiring all the smaller circuits. I have pool lights, a convenience outlet, a blower, and soon a heat pump. My question has to...

    So I would run 4 individual strands of that type of wire, plus a #8 ground through conduit from my main to the Intellicenter?

    Intellicenter circuit breaker question

    thanks for such a quick reply! This forum is always so helpful! I goofed in my posting, I meant to say blower and not bubbler... I'm thinking of getting the Silencer 1HP blower. As for the lights, currently I have 2. They are not LED (yet), I would like to upgrade, just haven't decided if I...

    Intellicenter circuit breaker question

    Hello all, I'm in the middle of replacing all my equipment... Based on all the input here at TFP, I invested in an intellicenter. My question is about the sub panel, I'm not sure what size breaker to feed the intellicenter with. I plan on having an intelliflo pump, aquacal sq225, bubbler, pool...

    Do I have flexible PVC?!

    Hello all... well, I just began the process of re-plumbing my pad. I'm updating all my equipment, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to change the pad plumbing from 1.5" to 2.0". The plumbing had been re-done years ago when the previous owner relocated all the equipment from the...
