    Aqua Comfort Heat Pump, Filter Timer question

    I am having my new heat pump *Aquacomfort ACT-1250 wired in tomorrow. Electrician is coming, Pool company already plumbed it in and pool is opening next week.

    Does my Heat Pump need to be wired into the timer part on the panel so the filter and heat pump are on at same time? Or does the Heat Pump sense no water and shut off gracefully?

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    It will have a flow switch to kill it if no water is flowing.

    I see no mention of a timer, just how to connect a remote, in the manual http://www.aquacomfort.com/wp-conten...nersManual.pdf

    So basically when the pump,shuts down the heat pump detects no flow and shuts down until pump starts again?

    Yep. Unless the water is already at or above the set temperature, in which case it stays off.

    That's how mine works. The electronics on it are very basic. If you turn it to "on", the water is colder than the setpoint you choose, and there is water flowing thru the unit, it will come on and start heating.
    Mine runs very quiet and has been trouble free so far. Seems to work very well even when outside air is in the 50's.
