We have a 35,000 gal pool.
Features are main filter pump ( on manual switch- 1 hp motor-wired at 220)
Waterfall pump with separate filter ( on manual switch- 1 hp motor-wired at 220)
Polaris 380 Cleaner ( on separate switch-3/4 hp motor-wired at 220)
Aquapure Apure1400 SWCG ( wired to only turn on with main pump)
Standard in-pool lights ( on manual switch)
Landscape lights around back of pool
Pool Heater- hooked up to only turn on with main pump
As you can see, its all very manual. I don't even have pump timers. I NEED to cut my power consumption but all motors appear to be in good condition and wired at 220 so I can't get them more efficient in as/is condition.
What I want to do:
Be able to automate the main pump and the Polaris pump at a minimum. I don't have a spa so there's no need for turning on heater/whatever. Perhaps I should keep it stupid simple and use a mechanical timer?
I got the outside surround sound hooked to my iPhone for control. So I am kind of techy but I don't need to blow money either I guess.
