New pool owner this year. I did all NG plumbing and electrical wiring for the project.
This is an EasyTouch wiring / programming question. I would like to schedule the following programs:
- run the pump at a low RPM with SCG (but not the heater) overnight when time-of-use electricity rates are low.
- run the pump at a medium RPM with SCG and heater at selected times during the day when we expect to use the pool.
I have achieved 1. with a scheduled feature circuit and 2. with a scheduled pool circuit. The problem is that the SCG, which is wired according to Pentair's insistence to the filter pump relay, is not powered on for 1 since the filter pump relay is not activated.
Is it acceptable to wire the SCG transformer directly to a breaker, rather than through the filter pump relay? Is the flow sensor switch in the SCG adequate?
