    Wireing the Intermatic PE153 (Digital Timer)

    I know this board has had no activity for a while, but I am hoping someone will read and respond...

    I am wiring the PE153 timer according to the notes in this chat board and have a couple of questions:

    1. Does the common (white) from the 120 breaker go to circuit #2 on the timer? I am wiring for 120 and not 240.
    2. If I am bonding the motor/pool, do I still need to run a ground from the timer to the motor? Or just from the panel to the timer?

    Thank you!

    1. No. The neutral goes straight to the pump. It's not broken through the relays.
    2. Yes, Bonding and grounding are two completely separate items and it requires both. The ground has to be all the way from the power panel to the pump.

    Sorry it took us so long to get you and answer!
