That was the Ron Popeil Showtime Rotisserie!But they do at least want it to operate the way it was designed and then "set it and forget it" (sorry George Foreman for steeling your line).
But I understood what you meant!
Well, I applaud Pentair for getting an end user involved. I know the company I work for, our best relationships and most productive development comes out of our group that deals directly with the end users. The end users find ways to use the equipment that the designers can sometimes never imagine!
That is super frustrating about the Intellivalves. Glad I went ahead and replumbed my equipment to do what I want, rather than waiting on the update. Although I was not really certain that the update would do what I needed, it sounded as if it might have.
Good luck and I know you will keep us posted!
