Remote Control for Water Pump

Hey All,

Installed this remote control for the water pump.

Wireless Keychain Remote as a remote on / off...
DC12V 10A Relay Wireless 1CH RF Remote Control Switch Transmitter Receiver Blk | eBay

Why? Well, with dual controls for the shower and the sink. Sometimes I want to cut the water flow without re-adjusting the controls. (such as when in the shower (yes, the shower head sort of works - but there is still a trickle flow and the pump cycles), or with wet hands doing the dishes, or in-between showers so water isn't wasted by whoever comes after re-adjusting for a hot shower.

Works like a charm. I replaced one of the screws in my shower enclosure with a hook and the remote hangs in the shower, very convenient... I also cracked open the remote to have a look and it's waterproof! Or at least water resistant enough where I am not worried about the thing failing from water damage. (there is a rubber membrane over the circuit board that seals in place when you snap the remote together)

Simple hookup. 12V + and - from the coach into the board, and 12V + and - from the board to the water pump. When you switch on the circuit via. the water pump switch it defaults to off or on depending on how a jumper on the board is set.

Just joined the site - hope you find this interesting!

Cheers, Arthur...

Great Idea!
I used a similar device to allow me to remotely turn off my little generator. My wife stays up late and often watches the TV or uses the microwave, so the generator is sometimes running when I go to bed. It is great not to have to go outside just before bed to turn off the genny.

If you have an accumulator (air bottle) in your system this method will not have the desired effect.

Without the accumulator it's a great idea.
