    Aquacal 120 electric

    Just got a new aquacal 120. I have a 40 amp timer that obviously won't handle the 50 amp heater. Does the heat pump have to be set on a time in conjunction with the pool pump or can it just be always on connected to the 50 amp dedicated circuit.

    It can be always on, but you must confirm that the pressure switch is adjusted properly for the installation. basically, if the heat pump is below water level, ensure that the pressure doesn't activate the heat pump when the pump is off.

    Below water level? Are you talking about below the pool water level, such as the pool being an above ground and the heater being flush with the ground. It is an in-ground pool and the heat pump is definitely above the pool. I am going to call aquacal today, but sometimes you rather get a real persons honest answer. I can myself, run the 6 wire from a dedicated 50 amp circuit in the box to a junction box outside and then run it to the heater.

    reklak, I am with AquaCal AutoPilot. You can connect it directly to your circuit breaker, separate of your circulation pump. When the pump turns off, the SQ120 will show a "flo" error message and turn off the fan and compressor.

    Thanks. That's what we did. Since you are with aquacal, what is the watt range for the aquacal 120.
