    Confused about wiring the GL-235 solar controller up for timer overide

    Hello all,

    I just purchased the GL-235 and am very confused about wiring the system up for the timer override. Haywards drawings don't make sense to me. I cant tell whether wires are tied together or bypassing.......THanks in advance.

    I have this timer with a non-varying pump.

    Either I'm missing something or me thinks the Hayward drawing has an error. I would call customer service have them explain it.

    I know waht I would do but I would rather have their customer service line explain it to you.

    So I think I have it figured out. I color coded the diagram to make it easier to understand (in my mind anyways).

    So will it burn up the pump having one hot 120v leg running to it all the time?

    Cut power to half of 240v

    Im not so much worried about the electrical hazards because I have a double pool switch with fuses on the front side of this.

    This is the final wiring schematic.
    The chlorine pump is still controlled by the timer.
    The shed fan still kicks on anytime the pump is running, which is ideal. Whole purpose of the fan is to ensure the pump doesn't overheat in the shed.
