So I thought everything was going to go smoothly since the electrician hooked up the SWG today with the help of Sean's nice diagram.....
I went to turn the pump off tonight and the on/off switch is directly connected to the SWG. Ok, so how am I ever going to be able to turn my pump off after it cycles and leave the power on to the autopilot so it does not lose its digital interfaces?
I am really wondering if this guy has ever done electric for a pool. I know some of these old timers are lost with today's technology...it seems he is one of them. Before he left, he told me the SWG has to be powered on all the time so it does not lose what is in memory...well, doesn't he know he has it connected to the pump????
The autopilot is currently wired to operate low/high speed of the pump vs on/off.
As he was working today I had asked him about the Intermatic 1353, which is able to program a dual speed pump. Would this be the correct timer to use?
I have ZERO electrical understanding, so I guess I am wondering even if he adds the intermatic clock, if it will power off the pump and not the SWG.
Here is a picture of the electrical panel as of today.
As of right now, I have no salt in our pool so my purifier is at 0%.
Our solar panels also have yet to be installed with that small control box....oh no...
DH and I are wondering if we should take our losses and have someone else finish for us.
Please help me!!
(I am also having a problem with my Whisperflo DS pump, should I post a separate topic for that one? I feel like such an ***** with all of thes issues pool people have left me with...they are such a breed)
