Found this Wifi Timer by Suraielec (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VS7SRHN/) and it looks like its supported by Tasmota (Suraielec 40A Heavy Duty Outdoor Plug (UBTW01B) Configuration for Tasmota). Has anyone that has this timer tried this? Would be cool to get Home Assistant and Node-RED to automate the pool timer.

I don't know anything about Tasmota.

Also, says it supports 2HP at 240VAC, so shouldn't have any issue running a Hayward Super Pump 1HP and a Circupool RJ-45, right?

Post pics of your pump motor data plate.

What amp CB is the pump connected to?

Is the pump CB GFCI?

Motor plate and labels are mostly all gone. Was identified by someone else on here as a Hayward SP2607X10.

Just bought the house and not sure about the amps of the breaker beyond that it is a STDP breaker ran as 240V. Will check when I get home.

Then you don't know if the motor was replaced and what the HP and amp draw really is.

If you are going to add other devices to the circuit you should put a clamp on ampmeter onto it to confirm what current the pump is drawing.

Bottom right breaker, 2 30 amp ones. Current timer is an intermatic 240V one. Not sure exact model, but it looks like main | 24-Hour Mechanical Time Switch with Skip-a-Day, 208-277 VAC, 60Hz, 1 NO/1 NC, Indoor Metal Enclosure, 1 Hour Interval and has a lot of rust on the enclosure and is missing the On-Off pieces and the plastic cover to keep your fingers away from the 240V wires. It receives power directly from the breaker, and I can't find any GFCI out there. Everything is properly bonded to ground though.

I would check the wire size connected to the 30 amp breaker. For 30 amps it should be #10 AWG.

NEC now requires GFCI breaker for pool pumps. Your panel is grandfathered and you can decide on the safety level you will accept.

If you have a 30 amp breaker with #10 wire it should have no problems feeding your pool pump and SWG.

Imma borrow a clamp meter from work and see what the actual amps are reading.

I know intermatic timers are 40A per pole, so they are fine with a 30A breaker on each pole. The Suraielec timer lists that it is 40A, but can figure put if that's 40A per pole.

Just double checking before I swap these timers. The 120V drawn in between the L1 and L2, that's saying that both legs should have 120V, for a total of 240V, correct. Picture kinda looks like its saying the difference between those wire should be 120VAC.

Whoever did that diagram made a mistake in box 4.

120V is between a L and N line

You get 240V when between L1 and L2, two hot lines.

That's what I thought, just double checking. So just wire it up exactly as Box 4 says, just ignore the erroneous "120V" bit, right?

Well a no-load test shows 120v between ground and all leads, and 240v across L1 and L2. I have flash Tasmota (open source automation software compatible with any Tuya ESP82xx controllers) and the physical button as well as software button are working. Now just need to wire up pumps and SWG to the loads.

Thx @ajw22
