Hello

 

Do you have the relay ??

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Hi Glenn, yes I do have the relay Its a DPDT 230v coil ice cube type with a 8pin base
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Glenn, just to maybe save some time, the pump only draws approx. 6.5 amps @ 230 and the relay is good for 10a. @ 230v. If yoy could list a wiring diagram with a written walk thru that'd be great
