You need to connect a 18-24 AWG, two wire cable from the RS-485 port on the pump to an available BUS port on The Attendant. Connect the Yellow to D+ and Green to D-. Do not connect the Red and Black wires to The Attendant.
If the connection is successful, you will see the Connect button light on the pump switch to a pink color.
Older versions of The Attendant software do not explicitly list the IntelliFlo3 pump. In this case please select IntelliFlo VSF from the dropdown menu.
IntelliFlo3 generation pumps may experience issues that prevent the pump from starting when controlled by any automation system including The Attendant in case of a dry start or a loss of prime.
If you observe the pump start to spin for 2-3 seconds and then shut down without displaying any warnings in the Pentair Home app or a flashing warning indicator light on the pump itself please follow the following procedures:
Check if you have water in the pump basket
Make sure the pump basket is full of water. If the basket is empty please fill it with water and power cycle the pump at the breaker to have it attempt a restart. Attempting to start the pump with an empty basket will frequently result in the pump failing to prime due to Dry Start protection being enabled.
Disable Dry Start detection
To permanently address this failure to start you may choose to disable Dry Start protection in the Pentair Home app by following the steps below:
Connect to the pump and go into the options menu:
Open the Advanced Settings menu and go into the Priming Parameters menu
Tap on Enabled next to the Priming option
Disable Priming and Dry Start. Press Save
