now I say this with all due respect like ricky bobby...

how can you say an intellitouch is easy to use...an easytouch is better but still bad....it is the biggest pain in the ass to program...i used to be an ace with those and it would take easily take 30-45 minutes to set up a basic shared equipment setup....oh yea and bump setting up lights on those things...i wanted to throw that gay ass remote of theirs into a brick wall...their user manual was written by someone who things the number 7 comes before the number 2...i'll go on for days....

the FIRST jandy setup I did was a dual equipment with about 10 other circuits, and also was a onetouch....meaning I had alot more to setup than your basic shared equipment which most people have....

it took me 15 MINUTES!!

not to mention the homeowner (who is probably legally retarted) has never had a problem figuring out how to use it meanwhile a ton of a homeowners with the Pentair always are getting lost...even those who have had several pools in the past

after that I told Pentair to suck it and stopped remembering how to program their backwards ass automation systems...

I guess everyone's got their opinions and we'll always argue pentair vs jandy, ford vs. chevy, cowboys vs. redskins.....but i just wanna have a timed match with programming those things and then handing them to the average joe homeowner to settle the score

do your homework....find some respected residential pool guys and ask them their honest opinion...shoot, tell em you'll pay them for an hour of consultation just so you've got a local opinion...good luck

my opinions are formed totally upon experience...80% of my business is high end automated residential pools...aka I am in daily contact with this equipment

I used to be a fan of Pentair...mainly cause it worked fine at the time, and I had not been exposed to alot of the other manufacturers....

then **** started malfunctioning...and Pentair equipment is a p.i.t.a. in general....its like working on my ford vs my honda....everything on the ford is a pain to get to and fix vs. the honda which, when rarely malfunctions...is easy to diagnose and repair

in any event...I have found Jandy equipment to be the most reliable and easiest to use in general...their stuff is right on Pentair with cost but soars above in quality...and sure it costs more than Hayward crap...but thats exactly what most Hayward equipment is...
