    I'll wire up Replacement pumps or replacement relays- copy and paste jobs .. easy enough. I know there isn't really much room for a grey area for high voltage but.. well I did it anyways.

    This house just had a intermatic timer for the lake pump. Minimum watering was daily for 1 hour. I installed a relay and a controller.

    After looking at it I should have went with a PRO C controller (Which I normally don't install but love them still) however I wanted the guy to have the option of wifi as he's a techy IMG_0763.jpeg IMG_0764.JPG

    Neato. I remember designing a smallish one-zone system to be fed from a pond, all R-50 rotors. Glad I never sold it, because service would be about impossible nowadays given the very-low operating pressure from a plain centrifugal pump running near peak efficiency.

    I feel your pain with the high voltage. One of my commercials, has two 3 phase 5hp boosters. I dread LNK modules. Haven't had any issues with Pro-HCs or Weathermatic, however most digital controllers are very intolerant of voltage fluctuations when a pump turns on (ask me how I know).
