I think I am going to take the plunge on the new Pool Pilot Nano...someone has to review it, right?

My elec. box has 220V for the pumps and 110V going to a GFI outlet so I could wire to either. Is the 220V a better option? I know with pumps it is preferred (less losses on the wires I believe is the reason).

There are other ways to do it, but it is usually best to wire the SWG in parallel with the pump, so you are sure that it is turned off when the pump is off. That means going with the voltage the pump is wired for.

Thanks guys! I just ordered it. I know Jason recomended holding off until we get some feedback for a year or so, but I couldn't resist the price. I have to believe it is based on their exisiting technology, and the cell is the same as the small one they are using with the Digital now.
