I am new to the forums, so thank you all for your help in advance and it is a pleasure to meet everyone on here.
We are having our first above ground pool installed in about a week, so I am trying to prepare for it by having all the electrical work done before hand. Here is my dilemma. We have a 115v pool pump that requires 10 amps and it has a twistlock plug connection. We also have a Zodiac c170 salt water chlorinator that runs on 220v and says it has a 2 amp load whatever that means. This is a hard wired peice of equipment. We want both pieces of equipment to run on automated timers so that the chlorinator only comes on when the pool pump is on. What do I need to buy or do to successfully achieve my intentions. I know I will have to have a 240 and 120 volt line run from my basement panel to the backyard underground seperately and have them come up to a post, but where should I go from there. Can I somehow cut the plug off of the pool pump and make that a hard wire connection as well? Are there any timers that the 240 and 120 line can be wired to that will allow my to hardwire my equipment directly to the timer? Also, will I need seperate timers for each peice of equipment if there is no dual timer that will accept multiple lines or equipment? Please help!
