I'm trying to understand exactly what would be needed to automate a pool I'm having built.
2 speed main pump
Booster pump for Polaris 280
Single speed water features pump with 2 independent features controlled by 3 way valves with actuators
LED x 2 (wired together)
High speed to include booster for cleaning
Low Speed without booster for filtering
Water feature (A, B, or A&B to be controlled by actuators)
Am I correct in my understanding that the 4-Relay systems would not work because I need to use 5 (2 for dual speed pump and 1 each for booster pump, lights, and water feature pump)? I've researched the Pentair/Hayward/Jandy options until I'm almost more confused than when I started.
Second question....any idea how the water features should be plumbed to achieve A, B, or A&B? Should it be: pump-->3 way valve-->one leg to A; other leg to 3 way valve --> one leg to B; other leg to pool return so that I can have only A open, only B open, or both A&B open. The return would be in place in case both valves are accidentally shut which would allow the flow back into the pool.
