    Pentair Suntouch programming

    Hello,
    I have a Suntouch 520819, a single relay connected to a 1 hp single speed pump, 6 roof mounted Heliocol solar panels with automated solar valve and a 10,000 gallon in ground pool.

    I want to program the controller for 2 functions:
    1. Turn on the pump (filter) from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, regardless of solar conditions,. Solar would be on when available, off when not.
    2. Turn on the pump and solar on from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm if solar is available and turn off the pump and solar when solar is not available.

    Obviously, program 1 will override program 2, which is fine. Is this possible?

    Thank you for your help!

    As I understand it you need to have the pump scheduled to run or solar will not turn on. So #1 is easy, but #2 it can't do.

    Thank you Jason! I figured it out!

    Instead of the pump hooked up to the "pump" relay output, I hooked it up to the Aux1 relay output and it works!
    1. Pump turns on from 2:00 - 6:00 with the "Pool" schedule
    2. Solar and pump only turns if the solar temp is high enough between 8 am and 8 pm on the "Aux1" program!

    I'd say I was a genius, but I really have no idea why it works. I'm just happy it does!

    Enjoy the Day!
