Pool automation systems can get glitchy. Best to get equipment and automation from the same company that work together the best. Also install a surge protecter in the main hosue panel and the pool panel. With equipment being outdoors glitches seem to happen around storms.Also -- how buggy are all of these systems? Have they all been plug and play without any issues?
Pentair Filter - $600 - $100So ballpark -- if I am going to replace my filter, pump, and pool heater -- what range are we talking? $5K? $10K? More?
Pentair Mastertemp 400 Heater - $2,100
Pentair Intelliflo VS Pump 011018 - $1,000 - $1,300
Pentair IC60 SWG (can be packaged with Intellicenter automation) - $1,200
These are equipment only internet prices. Double the cost if installed by a Pool Company.
Filters really don't wear out until they begin cracking and leaking. Replacing the filter depends on its condition or if you want a better performing filter or one that is more serviceable.I just read that the swimquip filter I took a photo of is an item from a company that was founded in 1952, then sold in the 1970s before being absorbed by Pentair. . . in the 1990s. Might be time for a new filter. . . .
