I am getting ready to purchase a goldline solar controller for my agp. I am not sure which model I need, because here is what I am trying to accomplish and my questions:
I want the controller to turn on the filter pump and send water to the solar panels whenever the sun is available (assuming I am below my desired temp).
I keep the pool covered with a track cover so, I really do not need the filter to run very much when I am not using the pool. Therefore is it possible to not even need the 3 way valve with actuator? Bc basically i think the filter will get enough run time just trying to reach the desired temp as I am in the north east mountains and it gets kind of cool in the evenings.
So, will this basic model work for me Hayward-Goldline GL-235 Model GLC-2P-A.
And by work for me, what I mean is, will the solar controller kick on and start the filter pump each time the sensors call for it? For example its a hot day and sun is shining and my pool is below desired temp, will the solar controller kick on the filter/pump automatically and begin circulating water through the panels. Then will it kick off filter / pump automatically when either the temp is reached or the sensors shut it down bc the sun has went away?
