I have an oddball dilemma regarding how to power a Stenner pump and to what extents I should go to power this thing. It is a Econ pump, 120 volts. I specifically wanted this one for programming purposes.
Now wired to where I intend to install this pump is a bunch of 220 volt leads. I currently have installed a 120 outlet being fed by the lights which are 120, but this is wired after the on/off switch for the lights (one light specifically, the switches to on off the lights are clear across he pool opposite where the pump station is.
Here are my options as I see it.
I can have an electrician install a 220 step down transformer so I can get my 120 outlet.
I can leave the pool light on permanently.
I can out an on off switch after the outlet, in the pool house. To turn on both sets of lights you'd have to turn on one then the other. Not optimal but an option.
I can reroute the entire light setup to they pool pump area (expensive, few hundred to a grand).
I could find a wemo wireless switch and install it after the outlet outside (they aren't rated for outside).
There is no outlet that is easily installable at that section of the house, and no comparable power on that section do wall within 20 feet.
I can snap some photos if needed.
