Solar Control System

The smart, easy, efficient way to go solar.

The Reliability of Full Digital Control at Your Fingertips

The SolarTouch® Solar Control System offers full digital control for the most precise, efficient, swimming pool heating possible. The digital thermostat is set with the touch of a button and will monitor the temperature of the pool water and solar collectors. SolarTouch® Control System integrates with IntelliFlo and IntelliPro Variable Speed pumps for unparalleled efficiency.

  • Digital calibration of water andd solar temperature in one degree increments
  • Integrates with IntelliFlo® and IntelliPro® Variable Speed pumps
  • Set pool temperatures and solar temperature differentials with the touch of a button
  • Solar valve automatically drains the solar collectors when pump shuts off
  • Durable PTFE seal is maintenance-free for years of dependable service
  • LCD display provides sharp, clear readings
  • LED indicator lights confirm SolarTouch is working. Service indicator LED shows when attention is required
  • Motorized valve actuator is built to last with sturdy steel gears; highly efficient low-voltage motor; service switch for flow direction
  • Weatherproof composite enclosure
  • Nocturnal cooling and recirculation freeze protection with filter-pump timer override
  • 3-year warranty

ENERGY STAR® Certified IntelliFlo and IntelliPro pumps from Pentair meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. These pumps save money, reduce energy use and protect the environment.

Pump Up the Savings Even More with Variable Speed Technology

Why save less when you can save more?

If you like the energy and money savings of a solar collector, you’ll be amazed at the IntelliFlo and IntelliPro pumps. These pumps have saved more money for pool owners than all other variable speed pumps combined. Now, today’s IntelliFlo and IntelliPro pumps offer you all these cost-saving advantages:

  • Estimated savings of up to $1,500 each year on your pool energy costs—up to 90% versus traditional pumps*
  • Ultra-efficient permanent magnet motors, as used in advanced hybrid cars.
  • Precise matching of motor speed to your pool’s needs. 8 programmable speed settings and built-in timer for maximum efficiency and savings.

IntelliFlo and IntelliPro Pump Advancements don’t stop there.

  • With the ability to run at lower speeds, you achieve near-silent pump operation—about 4 times quieter than most traditional-style pumps.
  • Software and digital controls for easier programming.
  • Superior pool filtration for cleaner water, thanks to longer run times at optimized pump speeds.
  • Totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motor design for long life and quiet operation.
  • Built-in diagnostics safeguard the pump for longer service life.

Make the Most of the SolarTouch Controller.

An IntelliFlo or IntelliPro pump lets you access all the energy-saving power that the SolarTouch controller has to offer. You can:

  • Maximize solar efficiency by selecting the exact, manufacturer recommended flow rates to your solar collectors.
  • Control the flow to and from the collector.
*Savings based on variable speed pump compared to a single-speed pump running 12 hours per day at an average of $0.16 per kWh in a 20,000 gallon pool. Actual savings may vary based on local utility rates, pool size, pump run time, pump horsepower, pump rpm, plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor and other hydraulic factors.

An Eco Select® Brand Product

The Eco Select brand identifies our “greenest” and most efficient equipment choices. The SolarTouch controller can optimize energy use by only sending filtered water to the collectors when the sun’s energy is sufficient for effective heating.
