I have just purchased a Flowxtreme 48s II 2 speed pump and needing help wiring it to the exiting 3 position SPDT switch. I currently have no timer. If anyone can help thanks. Also if anyone can help with an in expensive timer that can also control the power to a intel chlorinator IC15 and the pump thanks.

Welcome to TFP.

You need to use a double pole switch with 240V so that both hot lines are disconnected when off.

Many folks use an Intermatic T104 timer for the pump and SWG.

For 230 volts, you need a double pole single throw (DPST) switch for On/Off.

You need a single pole double throw (SPDT) to switch from high to low.

The intellichlor IC15 is 115 volts.

You need to have a 240 volt gfci breaker with a neutral in the panel feeding the T104 timeclock.

From the breaker box, you need 4 wires, 2 hot, a neutral and a ground.

The hot wires go to terminals 1 and 3 of the T104 timer.

The breaker has a terminal for the neutral and a neutral from the breaker to the panel neutral bar.

The IC15 Black power wire goes to terminal 2 or 4 in the T104 timer.

The IC15 White neutral goes to the neutral wire. The green wire goes to the ground terminal.
