Hey Pool Guys!
I have recently swapped my motor (followed your yotube video) to the Vgreen 165. I couldn’t be happier and its SUPER quiet. I do, however, have a wiring question.
My old pump was wired to a 24-hour dial style timer. With this new Century motor, should I eliminate the timer all together? Without the digital interface on the 165, I'm unable to see a custom schedule (days of the week, on/off time) and I’m not too clear as of now what happens when the power to the motor is completely cut off at night. An easy fix would be to keep the current wiring for power, and simply remove the on and off "trippers" on the dial there by bypassing the functionality of the dial timer and providing power to the pump 24 hours a day. This would allow the motor to start and stop based on the presets and not the interruption of power.
Would there be any help with purchasing the Vlink interface in my case? At nearly $300 I fear this would be neat toy for a month or so and then it would quickly lose its novelty once the pump is set.....
Thanks in advance!
