I have all kinds of problems trying to get the answers to my questions. Everything from my electrician not having experience with electric heat pumps to the sales person telling us to pull the wrong number of wires a 120 feet from the house to losing my first attempt at this post and having to start all over.
This is a new pool that we are trying to build. This is what I have:
1) Jandy AE3000 TR Heat and Cool electric heat pump
2) 4.0 ColorLogic Light
3) 1 1/2 HP Hayward Pump
4) 3/4 HP Polaris booster pump for pool cleaner. It can be 115 or 230
5) AquaRite SWG
6) one double receptacle
These are my questions and problems:
My electrician has never installed an electric heat pump. He is a licensed electrician and owns the most highly regarded electrical business in town. He put a 100AMP subpanel in my basement and ran 80AMP (almost positive) to my pool. Now he says we may not have enough to power everything. He has not looked at the booster pump or the AquaRite, yet. I am hoping he is thinking they take more power than they do. He has never installed a SWG, either.
*****Question***Did I give enough info for anyone to determine if I will have enough power for the things I have listed above? What do you think?
*****Question***My Jandy AE3000 is heating the pool, but the "Maintain Heat" feature is not working nor is it showing up on the control panel. We do not have a timer nor do we have anything that controls the entire system. Does anyone know why the "Maintain Heat" feature is not working? Do I have to have timer, could it be wired wrong? What do you think?
*****Question***The sales person for the Jandy AE3000 told us that we could take the controller off the heat pump and intall it in the house if we run 2 wires. The electrician ran conduit and 2 wires 120 feet to prepare for this. When the electrician pulled the controller, it needs 4 wires. After buying the bracket, we either have to pay for them to pull more wires (120 feet) or forget it being in the house. If the "Maintain Heat" feature is not going to work, we probably don't need it in the house, anyway.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
