Wiring a Polaris Booster Pump

I'm replacing the electric box and timers on my pool. I have a 11/2 hp Hayward pump and a new Zodiac 3/4 hp booster for the Polaris. I have 2 manual Intermatic timers for the 2 pumps. I noticed that there is only 1 240v 30 amp circuit feeding the 2 pumps. It goes to the first timer which schedules the main pump and there are jumpers to the second timer for the booster.

is this normal? Or do they need to be on separate circuits?

I don't think there is anything wrong with that setup.

It is important that the booster pump is only allowed to be on when the main pump is already running.
