    Next upgrade VS Pump... how to pair with my SWG

    Thanks nauss that was my initial thoughts just looking for clarification. Is there no way to delete the mech timer given that the VS pumps have timers built in? Guessing you have buy and additional relay or controller since my research seems to indicate there are load terminals on the pump timer

    Next upgrade VS Pump... how to pair with my SWG

    Looking to upgrade to a VS pump question is how to set it up with my SWG that doesn’t have a flow sensor. Currently turning off/on the SWG with my pump via a mech timer... should I remove the timer and run 24/7 or is there a way to wire the SWG to the VS such that they cycle together? Look at...

    Getting New Liner and thinking of the switching from Bromine to Chlorine

    Probably not in the budget to put another $800-$1000 into the pool for a Salt Water Chlorinator this year... Maybe next year... So can I switch to salt regardless of Bromine or Chlorine, may help me make my decision. I think going to switch to Chlorine and I'll probably continue to use the...

    Getting New Liner and thinking of the switching from Bromine to Chlorine
