Pool Automation Question(s)
Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any response.
I have a large pool (50x25) with a waterfall and no spa.
My Heater is a Lochinvar ERN-402 (400K BTU) @ 240V, 1Amp
Pump #1 (for pool) in line with heater is a Hayward SP4030 3HP FR @ 240V, 30Amp
Pump #2 (for waterfall) standalone, is a Hayward SP4015 2HP MR @ 240V, 15Amp
I also have 2 pool lights @ 120V each.
I also have a couple GFI outlets.
My system now runs itself off a spin dial type timer with the pins that can be manually adjusted for on/off.
The pool is about 13 years old and over time, I replaced the heater and both pumps.
I would like to automated my pool this year with a remote capability. I do not want to change out any valves but would like to be able to turn off/on each of the components as well as work the thermostat of the heater (I read where the Lochinvar has that option).
I have read a handful of posts in here but most of them deal with systems that control the valves (which I do not need to do).
I have googled these type systems and still confused on which is the best option. I am pretty handy, so I am not worried about having to rewire my system, I just want to do it once with the right equipment.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks, Jim (Maryland)
