View Full Version : Program question

Can someone please help me program my autotopoff pump to turn on every 30 or 60 minutes for 10 minutes?

I have a ACJr with a DC8.

Boy, that sounds dangerous!

Why not pick up a cheap float switch or two and use those to only turn on the pump when necessary.

I do have an autotopoff. It's too sensitive. It turns on the pump every minute or so. I'm going to hook up the topoff switch to the DC8 and the pump will connect to the topoff. That way the pump doesn't turn on too often. If the water level in the tank is ok, the topoff switch won't turn on the pump..

You can just use:

OSC 010/030 ON/OFF Then ATO ON

That will turn it on for 10 min then off for 30. You can choose whatever on/off lenghts you want to tailor to your liking.

ATO of course is a timer associated with an outlet on your DC4/8.
