Customer Question
Hayward multi-speed pump. There is...
I replaced my old Hayward 1 speed pool pump with a new Hayward multi-speed pump. There is a control panel on the pump. I'm using an Aqua Logic control panel for the clorinator and the power.
Can I run the pump independently of the control panel? In other words, since the power comes though the panel, can I have the panel "on" 24 hours and simply use the pumps control panel to set the run times.
Also, I bought the multi speed pump for the energy saving by running it at reduced speeds. The problem now seems to be that the clorinator doesn't have enough flow at the lower speeds.
Can you help?
