    Low voltage lighting, fountain for Pentair IS9

    I would like to hook up low voltage lighting and a fountain to my Pentair IS9. Would somebody be able to provide some high level direction on how to go about doing this? I can do the detailed research once I know the basic direction that I need to head in.

    Can you describe the IS9 a little more, does it have a longer name? Is that an automation system? I am not aware of a Pentair product with that model number.

    Hi, I should have posted some links. Also, I got the model wrong, it is an I9+3S. Mine is the one that has the built-in Sub Panel.

    I took a look at my indoor control panel and I only have two "devices" available for programming. The rest are taken up between the pool and spa light, the spa jets, spillway, pool pump, cleaner, etc. So I guess that means that I can only control two more devices.

    I am pre-plumbed for solar but haven't had solar installed yet. Assuming that will take up at least one control port then I probably only have one available. My guess is that means I probably won't be able to hook up my low voltage lighting. If not that should be OK as I can just use the standard light sensors on those. Would be nice to hook up my fountain to it, though, so it doesn't run 24hours a day like it is now. Note that my fountain is just a normal patio fountain with one of the little pumps that plugs into 110V so it isn't a fountain that uses a normal pool pump.
