IC60 + IntelliPH not compatible? Need help.

The board on my IntelliPH fried for the second time in about a year. The warranty service company came out today and is now telling me that Pentair says the IC60 pulls too much current for the IntelliPH and Pentair wants to swap out my IC60 for an IC40.

Would an IC40 work? Sure, but I’m not happy. I like the flexibility of running my pump for shorter time.

So, here are my questions. What should I do? Have them swap out my IC60 for an IC40? Keep my IC60 but ditch my IntelliPH (and ask for my money back)? If I asked for a free intellichem, would that help?

TIA

Jim,

There is no reason to have the ipH..

But if you just want one, it does not need to be connected to the IC60.. I would just use the ipH tank and motor and use it like a Stenner pump. Use an aux relay to turn the pump on and off to control the amount of acid dispensed,,

Thanks,

Jim R.

Disheartening as I just ordered IntelliPh for my IC60.
