Wiring a Salt Water Generator for my pool

Hey all,

I would appreciate some help with wiring my Salt Water Generator to my Intermatic pool timer.

I would think this is fairly straight forward. Ive tested the voltage at (counting from left where wires are attached #1 Line, #2 Load, #3 Line, #4 Load) and with the timer off #1 Line shows 120V and #3 Line shows 120V, while both Load leads show no current. With the timer running there is a current at #1, #2, #3, and #4 (as it should be)

So I suppose connect the Circupool SJ55 SWG contraol panel to one or the other Line/Load pairs and see that it works in concert with the pump?

The pool pump is 115V 60Hz and both Lines coming into the Intermatic box are 120V and the SWG control box is wired for 120V so I think its just a matter of trying one or the other set of Line/Load connections? Yes?

That sure looks like a 240vac timer. What is the part number on it ? T-xxxx
What is the voltage between #1 and #3 ?

It read 238V, so yeah I guess it is.

Its an Intermatic model T104R201

I really thought my pool pump was 120V. I guess Im looking for an electrician now
