I'm planning a pump upgrade from a single speed Hayward Superpump to a Pentair Superflo variable speed pump.
I have a chlorinator and would like to understand how the chlorinator could be switched on and off with the pump. I plan to hire an electrician but still would like to know how everything is connected for future troubleshooting.
I spoke to my retailer and he's telling me to connect the chlorinator to the pump and the chlorinator will shut off when the pump shuts off. I fail to understand how this will work, especially when the pump is 240volt and the chlorinator is 120.
Can anyone shed light?
My logic says, if I connect the chlorinator to the terminals on the pump, the power from my panel will continue to feed to the chlorinator as long as the breaker is on. The timer on the pump itself is not going to have any effect on the terminals or the chlorinator.
And if I have two hot wires and a ground coming from my panel to the pump to complete the 240 volt circuit, where does the chlorinator get the neutral wire?
