    Pool R&R

    Purchasing a SWG in the near future.
    Have a 22k IG that i want to convert.
    Leaning towards the Goldline Aqua Logic Plus for a few reasons.
    1. Less $$.
    2. Automation included.
    Automation is an important factor for me, buying a stand alone SWG and also an automation system would be too cost prohibitive.

    Does anybody know if the Auqa Logic Plus plays nice with variable speed pumps?

    I have a 2hp single speed but might be moving to a variable speed in the future. I know the Auqa Logic will accomidate two speed pumps but I am not sure about the variable speed.

    AquaLogic supports the Hayward Tristar variable speed pumps.

    Ok thanks, how good are the Tristar pumps? They seem to be quite a bit cheaper than the intelliflo pumps.

    The TriStar is a good pump, but probably not quite as good as the IntelliFlo. The IntelliFlo has a higher inherent efficiency, a higher peak HP, and has been around for longer. Normally I would recommend an IntelliFlo, but getting it to work at more than one speed with a non-Pentair automation system is both expensive and more work than it ought to be.

    At one point there was a rumor that the ProLogic/AquaLogic series was going to support the IntelliFlo without the expensive Pentair adapter box, but I don't see that claim anywhere any more.
