Default Waterguy ro automation

Getting ready to make my Ro more automatic with motor starters. Was wondering where is a good place to buy motor starters online?

I'd start your search for relays at grainger, once you know what model meets your needs, you may find it cheaper elsewhere.

Relay/contactor to be controlled by selector switch and or momentary pushbutton. Found them on Factorymotion.com . They have the best price I have found so far.

The contactors I was looking at will handle 10 amps at 240 volts and have aux NC/No contacts also. The plan is to tie the contactors in with low pressure switch and when I lose pressure the whole system will shutdown. From factory low pressure switch only protected high pressure pump.

I have a square D that I sent info to 3rdgen for compatability to what you want to do. If it works you can have it for shipping.

Haynes; It was a requirement in my company about 10yrs ago not any more! Goes you show it was a FADE! To the tune if about $500 per head x 354 at the time!
