I currently have a Hayward OnCommand automation system. Single speed pump and auxiliary pump for polaris. Chlorine generator as well. OnCommand turns pump on and off via schedule. Also turns on polaris pump via auxiliary switch. They are interlocked to prevent polaris from coming on without main pump. Chlorinator is tied directly to main pump leads, on and off with pump.
Just bought a new Hayward TriStar VS pump. Should receive in a few days. Very nervous trying to integrate with OnCommand and make everything work. I've started reading all the manuals, but it's pretty confusing.
I need to first figure out what I want to do. I need to run high speed for polaris and for good chlorination. But I also want to run low speed most of the time (not sure if I should run chlorinator at this time as well).
Not sure what my question is, other than looking for support and ideas. If anyone has done something like this, especially with OnCommand and TriStar pumps, I'd love to hear how difficult/easy it was. And if anyone wants to comment on operation, please do so. Thank you-
