    Question VS Intelliflo and Hayward SwimPure

    Hi,

    I recently had my pump replaced by the Intelliflo. After programming the pump for various speeds during the day, which works fine, he left the pump wired to the ComPool timer. Since the Hayward has to be powered at the same time as the pump, I guess this is the intent. This means the power to the pump is removed according to the timer. I guess this is ok as long as the Intelliflo retains its settings and time as it appears to do. I have two questions:

    1. Is this a smart thing to do?
    2. Any idea on how long the Intelliflo keeps time and programming without power?

    Thanks,

    John

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    What he did was the safe way to prevent the SWG from running without the pump on. I do not know how long the pump will retain its memory though.

    One option would be to get a current sensing relay and hook that on the pump power supply. It would sense when the pump is drawing a current and provide power to the SWG. Then you would not need to old timer and would use the pump to control things.

    Thanks for the reply Jason. I'll take a look at the current sensing idea. I just got an IntelliComm II to interface the VS to the Comport so that the motor will come on when the remote spa control is selected. Its a shame I can't use that "backwards" to report when the motor is on and turn on the SWG.

    Wait so you have some type of automation? Add your pool info in your signature.

    There may be a way to power the SWG off the automation only when the pump is on.

    You have to click the box to show the signature in the settings.

    Although I know nothing about that automation system, so will not be much help.
