    My Automated Liquid Chlorinator Build

    Honestly, I have no idea. I think it was the original electrician that installed the ET8, but they sure did it the way I'd want it done! I'm a bit OCD, so I certainly appreciated it, and especially when I was adding to it. :) Thanks! That's a great question. I almost put that in my write-up...

    My Automated Liquid Chlorinator Build

    Yeah, pics coming soon--I realized they saved as .HEIC files instead of PNG or JPG, and someone is on a zoom call now, :P

    My Automated Liquid Chlorinator Build

    Umm, what's with the novel??? I wanted to write out my story on putting together a very functional (thanks to all the folks here) automated liquid chlorinator for three reasons: (1) I'm proud of it, and I want to thank the folks who helped me; (2) to share the problems I experienced to help...

    Automated Liquid Chlorination system

    @jonpcar, @GDN, @RonsPlc (and anyone else using a tank outside), does the tank require a breather hole of some kind? If all of the barrel plugs are sealed, but the pump is trying to suck water out, does it need to replace that space with air, or risk burning up the pump? I have two plugs in my...

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    Yeah it was a lot of work, but that just makes the accomplishment so much sweeter. And it'll be well worth it! Truly appreciate all the help from everyone here--would never have happened with your support!!! I still have some tidying to do like finishing the edging, adding rocks, ensuring it...

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    Thanks to all of you!! I'm almost done. Just got the Stenner on the wall and drilled a hole in the rubber stopper for the barrel. :) Next will tap into the plumbing and I'll be about ready to fill with chlorine and test! One more question: What is this used for? Is it needed? I don't see...

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    So far it seems to be working fine. I'm going to toggle it on and off throughout the day, and also plug some different things into the outlet to see if that trips anything. Will keep you posted!

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    Gotcha. I read somewhere else someone recommending the SPST or DPST method as well, but I'd rather try moving the neutral wire if it's safe, because it's easier and doesn't require more parts. ? I'll give it a go on the morning. Thanks!

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    What is that neutral line used for on a 240V CB? I read online it's to complete a 120V circuit, but I don't know exactly the impact. Would that interfere with the pump needing a 240V circuit? I don't quite understand how circuit breakers work, TBH, so, sorry if that's a dumb question. I also...

    Will do. Thanks to both of you! It's dark now, so I'll try it in the morning and will let you know the results.

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    That went way over my head, lol. I'm not familiar with SPST relays, though I watched a video on it to try to understand. Didn't quite get it, other than allowing a "switch" to turn power on/off. Would this use the two Load wires from the Filter Pump relay to provide power to the relay (turning...

    EasyTouch 8 (ET8, or even ET4) Wiring Help

    No unfortunately not. I bought the 110v version, because I didn't have a need to do 220v. :( I'm sure returning the pump, especially since I've opened it would be costly. I'm hoping there's another way to solve the problem. Otherwise? I might just have to put a 110 breaker in and forget...
