    STEP#4 - WIRING THE BUCKETS AND CONTROLLER



    All we have left to do is wire our floats, hook all of our prepped wires to the timer and relay, cram it all into the project box
    and we're done! Let's get to it...

    We'll start by wiring our lower floats.
    1. Take one of the "Low Level High" wires and crimp three disconnects to it.
    2. Take the other "Low Level High" wire and one "Low Level Low" wire and connect them together with one disconnect.
    3. Take the remaining "Low Level Low" wire and crimp one disconnect to it.

    The lower floats are finished.
    ***YOUR LOWER FLOAT WIRES SHOULD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THIS PICTURE***

    Now for the upper floats...
    1. Take one of the "High Level High" wires and crimp one disconnect to it.
    2. Take the other "High Level High" wire and one "High Level Low" wire and connect them together with one disconnect.
    3. Take the remaining "High Level Low" wire and crimp three disconnect to it.

    ***YOUR UPPER FLOAT WIRES SHOULD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THIS PICTURE***

    All of your floats, receptacles and power cords are now prepped/wired and ready to be hooked up to the relays and timer.




    WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO we're almost there!!!!!
    Is it time for a bong hit? I think so :





    It's time to hook it all together!

    ***IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE STEPS VERY CAREFULLY. YOU HOOK IT UP WRONG...IT AIN'T GONNA WORK SO PAY ATTENTION******

    First, take all of your float switch wires and feed them through the grommet hole in the side of your controller box.


    Slice the grommet and put it around the wires. Now work the grommet into the hole. If it's tight just use a straight
    screwdriver to force the grommet into place.

    ***TIP: Before you feed the float wires into the project box you may want to label your wires. Once you feed the wires through the grommet hole it is very hard to keep track of what's what unless they are marked/labeled. If you scroll down there are some pictures for reference. Use these pics to label your wires then feed them through.***

    Now here's how it all gets wired...

    I'll show you with pics rather than try to explain it.
    (WIRE AS SHOWN)

    POWER CORD WIRES:
    **Green wire and white "bare end" wire should already be connected***
    (From top to bottom)
    TIMER SLOT#5 / TIMER SLOT#1 / TIMER SLOT#2 / RELAY A SLOT#8 / RELAY B SLOT#8

    LOWER FLOAT SWITCH WIRES:
    (Left to right)
    TIMER SLOT#4. / RELAY A SLOT#5 / RELAY A SLOT#6 / RELAY A SLOT#7 / RELAY A SLOT#3


    UPPER FLOAT SWITCH WIRES:
    (lEFT TO RIGHT)
    RELAY B SLOT#3 / RELAY B SLOT#7 / TIMER SLOT#3 / RELAY B SLOT#5 / RELAY B SLOT#6

    Now you need to connect the two black receptacle wires to the relay.
    Remember I told you earlier to mark one receptacle "F" for fill and the other "D" for drain?

    1.Take the black wire from the "Fill" receptacle and connect it to RELAY B SPOT#4
    2.Take the black wire from the "Drain" receptacle and connect it to RELAY A SPOT#4



    The wiring is complete.
    This is what it should kinda look like.

    Now cram the timer, relays and all that mess into the project box.

    Use your small bolts and nuts
    to secure the timer in place. Screw the back plastic cover onto the controller box. Secure the completed controller box to the
    bucket with one large plastic cable tie (make sure it's tight).


    WE'RE FINISHED!!!!


    Hope you guy's find this useful
