I'm very new to this whole pool thing and I have minimal electrical experience, but I am handy and figure things out easily (most of the time). I have a Hayward Max Flo 2302VSP variable speed pump. The pump has its own digital timer built in on the pump. I have mechanical timers (T40003RT3) for the salt generator and the pool light. I just installed solar panels and a solar controller (Hayward Aquasolar AQ-SOL-LV) that will automatically open the valve to heat the pool when heat is available. I have questions about hooking up power to the solar controller and also about kicking the pump up to high speed when the solar turns on.
- I currently run the pump on speed 1, which is the low speed, for 8 hours a day (There are 3 speeds total).
- I want the solar controller to kick the pump up to speed 3 (Highest Speed) when it turns on.
- I called Hayward and they said I will need a relay for the solar controller and wire it for a booster pump.
Does anyone know how to wire this and is it really possible?
