Hey everyone, I have installed an Easytouch8 on my pool/spa.
I am having a little difficulty in figuring out how to get the system to work properly.
I have the heater power hooked up to a relay which I have tried attaching to both the SPA slot and to the ELEC HTR slot on the control board... In both cases, the heater gets power and fires up when I go to spa mode... However I cannot turn the heat off unless I turn off spa mode. I want to manually control the Heater rather than have it automatically come on when I go to spa mode.
Id rather not run a separate 2 wire from the heater as there will be no good way to route it and have it protected. I would prefer that the Easytouch simply power/de-power the heater when it need or no longer needs heat.
Can I cut the wires for the relay and connect it to the gas heater connector on the board? I think it puts out 24v but I dont know what the on-board relay connections do for all the circuits volt wise.
Any other Ideas?
