Greetings seasoned experts!
So, we bought a house with a pool two years ago. All the equip was a mess, so we replaced what we could afford at the time to get it running. I've been manually controlling everything, so it was time for automation.
This weekend I installed an EasyTouch 8SC, with IC40 SCG, and a Mastertemp 400K heater. Now the fun part... I'm trying to figure how to finalize some of the connections so the automation will work as desired.
- Do I connect the 240V line connections for the heater straight to a breaker, or do they go to the same relay as the Filter Pump? I removed the factory Firemans Switch jumper from the heater and connected those two leads to the heater comm port on the EasyTouch. As I understand it, this will allow me to control temp, etc from the EasyTouch and the ScreenLogic 2 (that I still need to connect).
I have four valve actuators to install. One will go on the suction side valve (#1) for the filter pump to select between spa and pool. One will go on the return valve (#2) that directs to the spa or the pool. One will go on the valve that diverts either to the in-floor heads (in both pool & spa), or to the wall returns or waterslide (#3). One will go to the valve that decides between the wall returns or slide (#4).
- If I want to just recirculate water in the spa, I need the valve #1 to move to spa, and the valve #2 to move to spa. Can a single feature like "Spa" be set up to control two actuators this way?
- Can I set up a single Aux feature so that valve #1 will draw from pool, valve #2 will direct towards valve #3, which will send to the waterslide? In other words, can a single valve be set to different positions by multiple Aux features?
Attached is a graphic of the equip pad area (minus the heater and ICG, which are now in place). I've tried to label everything as well as I can.
Thanks in advance for any advice you all can offer!
