Pentair Easytouch upgrade to Intellitouch?
I currently have an Easytouch system with a 4x160 pump, and believe that the ET panel is failing due to a lightning stike a year or so ago. I would like to upgrade from the ET system to the Intellitouch system primarily so that I can eventually take advantage of the extra lighting features on my SAM and SAL lights.
It appears that all I would need to do would be to replace the current ET panel with an i7 or i9 personality panel and change the indoor control panel with the intellitouch backlit LCD panel (I already have the large Load Center with the ET). Do any of you see any problems with this approach? I know I'll get the best performance if I had a VF pump, but since I just replaced the 4x160 last year (as part of the same storm), I think I'll keep it for a while.
