No problem at all. You can definitely do it that way, I'm just letting you know it's not needed.Following is my timer - not sure if the SWG and Pump can be connected to these.....I seem to understand the flow switch shouldn't be depended on - but wouldn't it be okay to depend on the VS pumps inbuilt timer (giving it constant power) - and then using the existing pump timer for the SWCG?
Jack decided to go with the Pentair i30 SWCG, which has direct communication capability with Intelliflo.The RS485 will not do you any good with a Pentair pump and Circupool SWCG.
No, it doesn't require a Pentair automation panel. It connects from the SWCG power supply (the PS100) to the Intelliflow pump. From what I've found online, it looks like they may be including the RS-485 cable when you buy the i30 cell and PS100 power supply (these should be sold together for an original installation, around $1K). The cell by itself is only useful when replacing a worn out cell, in around 5 to 7 years time.Also sorry I have no idea what a RS-485 cable would do ? - assuming this would need one of their "automation" panels ? Not in my budget im afraid lol
It's not complex, most any sparky can figure it out.I may look for a pool electrical guy
