Thread: Pentair 5k42 control panel

    Pentair 5k42 control panel

    I have a pentair 5k42 that has an AUX 2 power relay available and I was wanting to put a liquid chlorine feeder on the system. Do the power relays reside on their own beaker? Can i just hook up the load and line then ground to the bus bar? Then will it power up based on how I program the system?
    Thanks

    As shipped none of the relays are connected to anything. You need to wire each relay to a breaker yourself. With just a little work you can get everything you want happening, but it does require a few more connections than you described.
