    How many amps is it rated for and at what voltage? The listed HP doesn't tell the full story.

    Rated at 21.0-19.4 at 208-230v. My concern is current draw at start up with stock eztouch relays.

    You will likely need a beefier DPST relay to handle the load you are describing. You might check the Grainger website for a proper relay for that load.

    The Badujet has it's own controls. Mine is connected directly to a 50 AMP breaker. The system, at least mine, uses a air button that can be at the pool. Mine is at the pool wall. I'm not sure what system you have but the Badujet manual will tell you exactly how to wire it and of course you should use an electrician.
    Northeast PA (Mt Cobb) 16,000 gallon in ground salt pool with all Pentair automation and Intelliflo VS pump. Also part of the pool is a two 5-horsepower 3-jet Badujet swim system. For heating we use a 384 sq-ft Heliocol solar pool heating system and additional solar from the 160 sq-ft house solar heating system.
