I currently manage two pools. One at my house and one at a rental property. I would love to have a timer for the pump so I don't have to turn them on and off or leave them running every day. Both pools are equipped with a SWG. Typically I never mess with the switch on the SWG, I just let it shut off automatically when it detects no flow.
Both pools have a similar setup. Both with a 1.4 HP Centurion pump (I don't know more than that off hand, but can look it up if no one knows the AMP rating). Both are wired for 220v. They are both wired directly from the pump to a breaker panel mounted on the exterior wall of the house. I turn them on and off by flipping the breaker, so I'm assuming I'm going to have to wire something inline unless there's something that can be installed in the breaker box to do this.
I've been browsing a little, looking for something that will work, but I figured you all would have experience with timers that work well and ones that don't.
Looking forward to suggestions on this as it will just make things a little easier.
