do you have to replace the pump to install a pump start relay or can you just bypass the pressure switch?

Asked by: Anonymous
This does not replace the pressure switch, you still need the preessure switch to maintain constant pump pressure, this is to start the pump when your irrigation controller starts its schedule, and shuts the pump off once its complete to prevent the pump from running when irrigation system is not in use.

Can I connect the controller and the relay to the same 240v circuit.

Can I connect the controller and the relay to the same 240v circuit.
Asked by: Macca
Macca, that will depend on your controller. If your controller is rated to run on a 240V circuit, then they could be on the same circuit because the controller requires very little power, leaving the huge percent for the pump. That should be fine. Most Orbit controllers can’t use 240V, as they run off of 120V instead.

Will this product work with a 1hp 220v pump? Does it replace the existing 220v wiring to the pump?

Will this product work with a 1hp 220v pump? Does it replace the existing 220v wiring to the pump?
Asked by: Sonny
Sonny, it is rated for 120 or 240 Volts, so 220 is fine, as long as it is single phase motor. The two Blue 24 V wires connect to wires from the sprinkler timer pump start terminals. Then the Power from the House will have 2 wires and a ground wire. The 2 wires are connected to the L1-in and L2-in. Then the wire to the pump will also have 2 wires and a ground wire, these will connect to the L1-out and L2-out. The grounds should also be tied together. (If your pump has 3 wires plus the ground wire, it may be a 2 Phase Motor, which is not supported by this product).

1-2 HP Pump Start Relay is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works good This start relay works great for what it's designed to do, start the pump. After wiring this start relay after an on/off switch the relay will still "click" on, but the pump will not run unless the on/off switch is in the on position. It will work with multiple timers, you just need to run wires to both pump terminals, one wire from the 24 volt out to the pump terminal, the other to the 'white common' terminal in the multiple zone timers. I currently run 2 twelve station timers. The only issue I have is needing to keep the box out of direct sunlight; I built a sun shield around the timer. Although there are boxes commercially available to place the relay starter in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and easy to install! Installed in minutes, works as it should, plus it was in stock locally, had a great price, and the product was nicely designed! The wires are marked making installation easy for just about anyone, several knock-outs making it very easy to locate, or replace a burned out relay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must if you have a pump The device is simple and the enclosure gives plenty of room for wires. Could be a bit more clear on connections to sprinkler system as it required reading both relay and controller documentation and trying a couple of configs.
