    What do you mean by it doesn't come back on? The coding has nothing to prevent it from turning back on once the feed statement D completes. If the outlet turns on but the pump doesn't pump water, you need to fix your return pump. The only other thing that could keep it off is if the outlet is set manually off.


    As an aside, the best way to program a skimmer is like this so it's set and forget.

    Fallback ON
    Set ON
    If Outlet Returnname = OFF Then OFF
    If HighSwitch OPEN Then OFF (optional)
    Defer 005:00 Then ON

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

    How are you turning off the return pump? By using the slider on the dashboard? Or are you activating FeedD?

    how long does it stay off for? How long do you expect it to stay off for when the Feed is active?

    Does the Feed timer expire and it still stays off or is your feedD timer longer than you expect and you just haven't give it enough time to turn back on?
