Get model numbers for lights, pump, filter, heater.

Delete the Polaris 280 and booster pump and get a robot cleaner from Marina Pool.

Consider getting IntelliCenter instead of EasyTouch.

If you get the EasyTouch what model number? Confirm it is not the Lite model. Confirm it includes ScreenLogic2.

Thanks! He responded with the following.

Pentair equipment 3 years warranty
  • microbrite LED color lights
  • 12 v intelliflow variable speed
  • Cartridge filter 520
  • Max Temp natural gas heater 400k btu
I read your links (very helpful!) and it seems the cartridge filter and heater should be good. Am I correct in thinking that? I'm not sure about the pump though.

You would like to know the specific model number IntelliFlo pump he is providing...


Confirm the filter is the CCP520...

That's correct - he had sent me the link, and I did not see the model number only the name, but I see it now. Is that a good choice?

Is $600 for an upgrade from easy touch w/ screenlogic to intellicenter a fair price?

Thanks for all your help.
