Has anyone here connected an Intelliconnect to a Pentair IC15 with full functionality (thru RS485)? I purchased the IC15 because my custom inground SPA is only 2k in size but I wanted a completed automated solution and monitoring. The intelliconnect was a breeze to install and setup with my pump, heater, and lights. However, I'm stuck on the Intellichlor IC15. The pool supply house said that it can be connected to Pentair controls but I don't see how. The instructions are all describing the IC20 and above models with the accessible power supply. My "above ground" model has a sealed power supply with one 120VAC plug. I don't just want to connect it to the same GFCI that the pump is on. I want to control it with the app so I can run the other functions. BUT I don't see an easy way to connect with RS485 wires. What am I missing?

To my knowledge the IC15 cannot be connected to an automation system like the other IC units.
I suggest you return it to the pool supply house and get an IC20.

Thanks! Unfortunately, they won't take it back since I bought it last year while I was building the SPA - which unfortunately took longer than I planned (as everything in life). I may need to Ebay it and try the IC20.
