In the manual for the PoolPilot with the cell power set at Level 3 it states it pulls 8 DC amps "(set at 100% - 24 hour operation)". I am aware that AC amps and DC amps use the same amount of power.
Is this per hour or over a 24 hour period, as the Digital unit at 230 Vac pulls 1.5 amps, I think it is over a 24 hour period, am I incorrect?
If I am wrong and it does pull 8 amps per hour it would be better to run the pump longer as it pulls less amps and set the percentage output lower on the SWG cell as you recommended to near 50% versus 70%.
One last question if it pulls 8 DC amps, and the setting is 50% at the SWG cell would it be correct to state that is pulling 4 amps?
