Pool pump speed control.


Recommended Posts

Hello Chris


Welcome to the forum.


If the motor has brushes, it will be a "universal motor" and you will be able to control the torque, and thereby speed, by reducing the voltage applied to it. This could be done by the use of a tapped transformer, or a variable transformer or a solid state AC voltage controller.


The solid state controller would be a phase controlled triac rather like a large light dimmer.


Best regards,
