I'm new to pool ownership and am in the middle of a full remodel of an existing 1950s-era pool. One of the things I did was opt to replace the $85/mo single speed pump with a VSP with built in timer and add a SWG.
I've found this question asked here, but I've not found it answered, my apologies if my search-foo is just too weak, but here goes:
What I can't figure out is how to reconcile the requirements/suggestions for wiring those two devices on the same pool:
1) Pump gets 240 24/7, it is no longer switched by the Instamatic mechanical clock
2) Nano+ wants to be switched on/off with the pump (even though it has a flow sensor)
3) Nano+ specifies that it requires GFCI, pump not only doesn't require it, but states that if you use one, the pump can be the only load on the circuit
Contractor has a single breaker feeding directly to the pump and via the Instamatic to the Nano+. Which seems reasonable, but falls far short of the above.
What are people doing?
Thanks in advance,
