    Pool Pilot Electrical Installation Help

    Purchased a new Pool Pilot Digital 40K SWG (DIG-220) and plan on installing it soon. My question has to do with wiring/powering the unit. Currently I have one (1) 230 line running to the equipment pad, this line is providing power to a Hayward Super Pump (1 HP), Raypak heater and Hayward booster pump. The 230 line is run using 12 gauge wire and has a double 20 AMP circuit breaker. My question is, do I need to run another 230 line to power the SWG or can I use the existing 230 line to power it? I will be replacing the Intermatic 2 power source mechanical timer with a new Intermatic 3 power supply digital timer. The power for the booster pump timer is powered by the other timer. Thanks for your help.

    You should be all right with just the existing circuit, though there are advantages to having a circuit for each pump.

    Since you are using a separate timer, the Pool Pilot Digital should be wired so it only gets power when the main pool pump gets power.

    Thank you for the response. So if I understood you correctly I can use the existing 230 line my main pump, heater and booster pump are currently connected to.

    Thanks again for your help.
