    Help! Manual Feed Button programing

    I have a momentary button wired to apex breakout box. I want to be able to push the button to trigger Feed A mode so return pump slow down and skimmer stop. I have tried a few lines of code but it doesn't work. Currently it has:

    (Variable Speed output for return pump)
    Fallback 60
    Set 60
    If button Closed, then 10
    Defer 010, then On

    When I press the button, it momentarily slow down the pump to 10% power, but almost immediately returns to 60% instead of waiting 10 minutes. What did I do wrong? Obviously I don't want to hold the button down for 10 minutes. Thanks.

    You have to use a VO with momentary buttons

    ButtonFeed
    Set OFF
    If ButtonName CLOSED Then ON
    Defer 010:00 Then OFF

    Return
    (Existing code before what you just tried)
    If Output ButtonFeed = ON Then 10

    Great, I will give it a try. I suspected that I needed a virtual outlet, but not sure how to go about it. Thanks for the quick reply.
