Well now you tell us I didn’t even know that was an option. Although tbh I already have a plug that I can use and I even have some extra cord if it doesn’t come with a cord. And I can move some jumpers, so I’m not too worried about it.Back when I ordered my RJ45+ a year ago (on the $1 upgrade sale too), I asked them to put a plug on it and set it to 120 VAC. They sent mine ready to go and I just plugged it into my 110v plug with my pump.
Thanks for the heads up . Should have ordered it yesterday , lol .I ordered mine Monday afternoon and according to UPS will be here tomorrow. That doesn't sound promising for the weekend for yours considering UPS doesn't run Sat's or Sun's. :-( Sorry.
I thought their $1 upgrade sale was supposed to end Monday night at midnight? If you still got the deal, good for you!!!
Thanks , Let us know whats all included when it arrives !I ordered my RJ-30+ from discountsaltpool on Monday and it is on the UPS truck for delivery any minute now. (UPS was showing an estimated delivery time of 9:30-12:30 and it’s already 12:38 and it’s still not here grr). I can let you know about the cord situation as soon as it arrives. I had the same idea about just installing a plug at the end of the cord.
discountsaltpool shipped very quickly... I ordered Monday morning and it was shipped by Monday afternoon. They ship UPS from Houston, TX, so if you know how long it takes UPS to get you a package from Texas you can figure out when it will get there.
Yep, went through the install directions and should be a piece of cake to configure a jumper from 240v to 120v !
I'm not quite understanding what gain is there to have the VS pump connected to the line side of the timer and have the SWCG connected to the load side of the timer....... once the vs pump has it's own timer of sorts the fact its connected to same hot/circuit can be the only part gained that when no juice to pump then no juice to SWCG on a CB trip. Other then that I can't see any purpose unless I'm missing something here but that hasn't been mentioned so what is it.From Jimrahbe ------
It is not so easy with a VS pump as they normally get constant AC power, as VS pumps have a built in timer/controller. What most people do is wire the VS pump to the line side (input) of the timer and the salt system to the load side (output) of the same timer. Then set the cell to come on "inside" the operating time for the pump. So, if you schedule the pump to run from 7 am until 7 pm, then set the salt system to run from 8 am until 6 pm.. This is just to cover any slight timing error between the two.
A VS pump is supposed to be "hot" all the time and not controlled by a separate timer. It has its own built in digital timer , that controls the pump run time . I dont think its advisable to run a VS pump to turn off and on with a mechanical timer . I would guess it could possibly mess with the VS settings if the power is cut every day or more. Plus some VS pumps like mine , after the power is cut , have to go through a prime cycle the first time power is turned back on . (With a separate mechanical timer .......this would be every day !)I'm not quite understanding what gain is there to have the VS pump connected to the line side of the timer and have the SWCG connected to the load side of the timer....... once the vs pump has it's own timer of sorts the fact its connected to same hot/circuit can be the only part gained that when no juice to pump then no juice to SWCG on a CB trip.

Yes basically ....So what you're saying is that the power is there and just upgrading pump and as convenience has it you just jump it over to the line side from the load side. Got it, I understood the vs pump gets uninterrupted power but it was the rest of the story that needed clarity. TY
I posted a number of pictures from my install, including the wiring in this thread:
Hello, all, I ordered an RJ45 SWG a while back, and it is still sitting in my house. I'm a (middle school!) teacher trying to convert my 10 classes (and 4 different technology-related, usually hands-on subjects) to distance learning, and DH is disabled. I am fairly handy overall so I ordered...www.troublefreepool.com
As far as the flow sensor, I don’t think it really matters much. I did it the way I did because it was easier for my plumbing situation, but if you have the room to install it before the cell with an extra 6-12” of straight pipe before it then I don’t think that would be bad either.
