Atti2d Posted December 13, 2003 Report Share Posted December 13, 2003 Are solid state relays suitable for use in controlling a pump motor... such as a swimming pool pump? I have a 1HP pump (about 25A @ 115Vac???) that needs to be activated by a typical household appliance timer that is rated at 15A max. I figured the best way to do this is via a relay... a contactor... or a solid-state relay, the latter of which I have a number onhand with acceptable load handling capabilities. I just don't know if there is some aspect of the solid state mechanism that makes them unusable in this application. Thx for any help.Dan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
