I have been doing a lot of research on this but still need some help. I have posted on the forum for the z wave switches I typically use (innovelli) and the pool forum (troublefreepool) with similar but different results.
Goal: to be able to control my pump on/off as well as pump speed (hi and low speed) remotely via z wave.
My pump is a 2 speed unit, not variable speed. I currently have an intermatic manual timer controlling the on/off then I wired in a spdt toggle switch to change the speed from hi to low. Worked that way for 5 years or so. The clock motor on the intermatic just went out so I am finally researching ways to automate this more rather than replacing that motor (which I know is cheap and easy.)
Here is my pump label:
Here is the current wiring setup:
The switch is a 20a spdt toggle on-off-on.
I have heard both that wiring the switch like it is is not code compliant…while others have said it is not a violation, just not an ideal way to do it.
All I want to do is be able to remotely control my pump on/off as well as my pump speed. There is no neutral into the box so I don’t know if that complicates things. The breaker box is right next to this and has 2 15a breakers (actually 3 but the 3rd is for something else) feeding.
I have found the GE heavy duty unit and that would handle the on/off but how can I address the speed and how would whatever be wired in with that?
I have also found the intermatic ca3750 which seems to be discontinued but could I use 2 of those if I can find them?
Anything else I can do?
