Looking to replace my Aqualink 8 with an Easytouch 4 Pool/Spa 520538.

Can I plug in the valve actuator control cable (for my non-boosted cleaner) into the Optional VLV A or VLV B and have it programmed as a circuit? No plans to ever add solar heat.

I think the ET 4 has enough relays. My needs are: 1. VS Pentair pump, 2. Jandy JXi heater, 3. Bubbler, 4. Pool light, and 5. Spa light.

Called Pentair, not much help. They have the same hold music as Jandy/ Fluidra? Strange.

Heater does not need a relay. Neither does the bubbler.
Be sure the ET 4 is NOT the lite version. If you are getting ScreenLogic too you may as well get the Intellicenter.

Jeff,

Valve actuators are all the same.. I see no reason you can't plug it into Valve A or B... on the EasyTouch

You would just set up a Feature Circuit that is assigned to say Valve B

You can see below where I my Waterfall Circuit is assigned to Valve B




Thanks,

Jim R.
