    Plug in filter/pump with hard wired swg...how to make that work?

    If I go with say, a Hayward XStream filter/pump combo that just plugs in, but I want an Aquarite SWG, which is hard wired, how will that work exactly? I plan on having an electrician do wiring from the house to the pool but I am curious about it. The pump and SWG would need to be working together at the same time (and cutting off together also). Also wondering if the control panel for an Aquarite also runs the pump too? Or would that be separate anyways?

    This is simple enough to setup.You would need to get a hardwired timer and have it installed so it switches both the SWG and the pump outlet.

    The AquaRite units do not control the pump. They expect to be powered down when the pump is off by some external control system.
