Hi, robbous! Sorry to hear about the trouble you are experiencing. I would suggest sending an email to [email protected] so that we can walk you through the steps to get your VorTechs working with the WaveEngine. Here is a video that may help you in the meantime!

I feel that there are a few details missing from those instructions.
On the options page you need to pay attention to what group your Ecoteh pumps are assigned to. Once you have them paired with the WE they will then follow the program of the group they are assigned to, and follow either the "SAME SIDE" pump or "OPPOSITE SIDE"pump depending on how you set the Ecotech in step 5. Hopefully that helps someone, it was a bit confusing at first.

Is it possible to make the vortechs the main pumps in the selected group and all the other pumps ( gyre 350’s and octopulse 4 ) will be the slaves? Or can the vortechs be in their own group by themselves and work independently from the other pumps that would be in the our own separate group?

All pumps in a group are treated the same regardless of the brand. If you have a Gyre, OctoPulse 4 and a Vortech in "Group 1", then ALL pumps work together.

Vortech pumps are grouped ALL or NOTHING. What this means is that you can only pump Vortech pumps into a single group. You cannot split 2 Vortechs to Group 1 and the other two Vortechs to Group 2.

What this also means is that YOU CAN put all Vortechs in a separate Group by themselves and they will work together as one but separate from all other pumps in DIFFERENT groups.

The reason i asked was because when i had my MP60 paired to my WA and the two gyre 350's
