My pump is 2-speed model, 240 volt, but it is currently only wired for high speed. The only switch is the dual breaker, which I don't particularly care for, as breakers are typically not rated for as many cycles as an on/off switch. It is also not wired with a timer. I want to upgrade this setup. I definitely want to include a timer. I also think that I'm missing out on the benefits of having 2 speeds, but I don't know exactly what these benefits are. And should I add the means to control both speeds with a timer(s)?
At the very least, I'll put a timer on the high speed setting.
