Response to Hi Allen, I have a similar set up on my pool and I don't have the salt system set up on a timer, I just have the pump use its timer, the salt system will only produce chlorine if water is passing through the flow switch. For example if you have your pump set to run for 8 hours and you have the salt system set at 50% then the salt system will produce chlorine 30 minutes out each hour that the pump is turned on, so in this case 4 hours total. So the salt system controller will have power all the time and it will produce chlorine based on the flow switch.
