Can someone take alook at this and let me know why the skimmer isnt turning back on?

I just got my Apex setup and am trying to lean how to get things programmed.

Fallback OFF
Set ON
If FeedA 005 Then OFF
If Outlet Rtn_Pmp_3_3 = OFF Then OFF
Defer 005:00 Then ON

TIA

Could be the skimmer, just fyi it seems a common problem that some pump/impeller combos can lock-up when trying to restart. I rarely shut off my skimmer to be honest.

If you have a If FeedA statement on the return pump outlet, you don't need If FeedA for the skimmer... the If Outlet and Defer statements make it redundant.

The skimmer is staying OFF, because that is how you have it programmed. The Defer command will cause the outlet to wait five minutes before turning back ON.

Thanks Russ and Todd!

By removing the If Feed statement, the skimmer came on 5 min after the return pump as I wanted.

Fallback OFF
Set ON
If Outlet Rtn_Pmp_3_3 = OFF Then OFF
Defer 005:00 Then ON
