The directions and videos only say to wire the Aquarite salt system to the line load of a timer. I don't have a timer. The VS 900 Omni pump has the timer built in. Do I wire the salt controller directly to an independent breaker? Or, do I wire it in somehow to the Omni pump?
thanks

Welcome to TFP.

You have to wire the Aquarite through a separate timer. Like the Intermatic T101/T104. So that the Aquarite is not powered when the pump is off. It is for safety as the flow switch can fail and allow the cell to generate hydrogen gas that can explode if the cell is powered when the pump is off.
