    Bypass Aqualink control of pentair intelliflo variable speed pump

    I have an Aqualink that controls my pentair intelliflo variable speed pump. Everything works fine. However, I'd like to be able to run the pump at its highest RPM for a few minutes after I clean the pump basket or the filter to make sure I get all the air out.

    How can I do this from the pump keyboard essentially bypassing the Aqualink control?

    I do the same thing when cleaning the basket. When my pump is connected to the Solartouch it says something like ext. control. But, that cycles back to the regular control screen every 30 seconds or so and when it does I can hit another speed, like 4, and it will go to speed 4 until the display cycles again and it will revert back to the programmed speed.

    em,

    If you unplug the serial cable, the pump will go back to local control.
