    Programing Dig-220 with 2-Speed pump

    I had another thread on wiring the Dig-220 with a 2-speed pump and got good feedback. I plan on using the pump relay to control high/low speed with the autopilot but using a timer to control on/off periods. My questions deal with how the autopolit controls the programing.

    I want to set the timer to run the on/off cycles in low and then just use the autopilot to change pump speed manualy for when I need to vaccum.

    To get to this I assume I just set the autopilot as using an exteneral timer in the intial set-up menu. Would that take care of everything? Or am I just better off not using pump relay and installing a seperate switch to control pump speeds?

    There installing liner today so any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    drb, if you set up the DIG-220 for 2 speed pump, but do not program the PROG1 or PROG2 timers, you will then use the PUMP button to switch between high speed and low speed.

    Thanks for the help Poolsean.

    As an example, would I then just set my timer for 8hrs and experiment with a % on till I get the correct FC? How would boast be affected?

    Again Thanks

    Correct. Boost will only stay on 100% during the timer on cycles. So at 8 hrs/day run times, it will stay on Boost for the next three days.
