iAqualink or Aqualink touch?

CoopsydJuly 30, 2012

Hi,

I've been reading this site for months as we've prepared for our new pool, and the information has been invaluable. My pool builder is now asking me to make a decision on whether to use go with the iAqualink control system or the standard Aqualink Touch. While the iAqualink seems to be the more obvious choice, I am worried about it's reliance upon internet connectivity. Because we already have so many devices on our internet, it isn't always the most stable and has to be reset pretty regularly (once per week). Additionally, we don't think we'll have any great need to pre-heat our spa prior to getting home in the evenings. Would it be a mistake to go with the traditional model in your opinion for the sake of reliability? For what it's worth, the more expensive iAqualink is already budgeted in my contract so it wouldn't be more expense, but that's not the major factor anyhow. Thank you in advance for any thoughts and advice you have.

Best,

Jeff

Go iAqualink, and if you are worried about wireless connectivity, just have it hard wired to your router, it is an option to wireless. Issue solved. You will regret not being able to control your pool or monitor it while you are not home.
