I did a cursory search and didn't find this exact situation answered. If the answer is already out there, please let me know and I'll do more searching.
I recently replaced my single speed pump with a Hayward SP2602VSP. It has a built-in timer, but the installer kept the wiring the same and now I have the VSP connected to my external manual timer and must have my salt water controller powered on 24/7.
He said I can remove the timer screws that control on/off, but this seems clunky/unnecessary.
I guess my concern is am I wasting a lot of electricity and/or wear and tear by keeping my controller and manual timer on 24/7?
Thanks for your assistance.
