    Pentair IC60

    Planning to add the IC60 this spring. Do I need EasyTouch to run it, or can it just run off of the basic mechanical timer that currently runs the pump?

    You do not need EasyTouch to run it. You will not have the 1% increment adjustability that you can get with EasyTouch, I think you're limited to either 10% or 20% increments, not positive, but someone else will have that answer. You can run it off the same timer that you have that runs the pump.

    Yes, you can run the IC60 on a mechanical timer. And yes, the output can only be changed in 20% increments. 20, 40, 60, 80, 100. Mine is wired directly to its own mechanical timeclock and it is easy to control the output by changing the percentage and the on time. Just make SURE that the SWG only runs when the pump is running.

    Our neighbor recently got an IC40 in their 10k pool without the EasyTouch. They run their pool pump 6 hours a day and the FC is way to high at the lowest setting of 20%. Having the EasyTouch makes it much easier as you could dial it down further than 20%.
