what is a Motor Guard used for?
The motor guard is a fundamental element in the equipment of your swimming pool electrical panel. It is a circuit breaker designed to protect electric motors. It provides superior protection against transient overcurrents typical in motor starts, providing protection against motor overloads and short circuits.
what is a chlorination system contactor for?
Chlorination and PH control systems need to operate at the same time as the water circulation system or pool pump. This allows the product generated to circulate into the pool without accumulating in the pipes, saving on electricity and chemicals.
In some cases this is achieved by connecting these elements to the same connection socket of the filtration pump, however this practice prevents a correct protection of the motor guard on the motor of your pool and reduces the life span of these elements.
A contactor for the chlorination system will provide you with an independent connection socket for your chlorinator, PH or Redox pump that will be activated in synchronisation with the filtration pump of your pool, preventing the system from working when the water is not circulating or when it is filtering.
