I've got an older Jandy Aqualink RS8. I'ts connected to an Autelis unit so even though it's old, Ive already got web control. The other day my 2-speed pump motor went out. I want to upgrade to a Pentair Intelliflo VS but it's looking like this is going to be a costly upgrade.

According to Jandy, I need the IQ900-RS upgrade. This is $650! Is there any other option to upgrade the Jandy or is this the only way to go?

Thanks

Im a little lost now... what is the difference between IQ20-RS and IQ900-RS? Jandy has an upgrade document that says use the IQ900-RS but it may be dated. Is the IQ20-RS newer?
