I just bought a house with a pool. The pool pump is wired to a timer. The polaris motor is wired to a switch. The same switch is also wired to the pump so that if the polaris is on, the pump is on. The timer is only effective when the polaris switch is off.
I would rather that the timer be the driving force. The switch will turn the polaris on/off, but only if the timer is active. But, each motor is on it's own circuit breaker (both 115v motors).
The timer is an intermatic T104P, which says it's a DPST but only has one set of terminals.
So I would like to get this: Intermatic T100 Series 40 Amp 208-277-Volt DPST 24 Hour Mechanical Time Switch with Outdoor Enclosure-T104RD89 - The Home Depot
My question is, though, is this ok? Is it sound to run two completely independent circuits through the same timer box? The picture on that timer shows the neutral running to each line, so that would go away. One neutral would go to the A terminal to power the motor, then just line/load for each motor.
Any advice would be appreciated. I'm in the learning phase of this project.
