I've got old Intermatic mechanical timers for my pool pump and booster pump(220V). Recently, I've noticed that there is an arc behind the pool pump timer whenever the switch is turned on. I'm not sure if it's always been like that or if it is something new. Either way, I'm going to do something about it.
The enclosure seal is worn out, and there is some rust on the box. The wiring is a mess inside (bought it this way) so I probably need to neaten it up a bit. There is no automation beyond the timer and freeze protection.
I suppose I have several options. The simplest I think would be to just replace the mechanical timers.
However, when this pump motor dies, I'll replace it with a two speed motor. I don't want to have to manually change the motor speed to accommodate the booster pump running.
If I understand correctly, I'll need three timers, 1 for pump low speed, 1 for pump high speed, and 1 for the booster pump.
I'm not looking for anything fancy. Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance!
