Pool Pump Interference

When my pool pump is running none of my INSTEON Devices will respond. I can turn the pool pump off and everything works fine. Does anyone have a suggestion on how i can fix this issue?

Re: Pool Pump Interference

Depending on the amps of your pump, maybe this or this?

Re: Pool Pump Interference

This is an old post and at least one of the recommended filter devices is no longer available.
I have an Insteon network that suddenly became very unreliable in our poolhouse. After some trouble shooting I narrowed it down to one of our pool pumps, Pentair Intelliflow pump.
So something must be going bad on this pump, which now introduces line noise interfering with Insteon signals.

Anybody else having similar issues?
Any suggestions for such situations, 220V, 20A hardwired motor device?
I tried placing range extenders in the main house with the hope they would pick up the RF signal from the poolhouse but this did not help.

Re: Pool Pump Interference

Just in case anybody has the same problem: The XPF 20A Wired-In Noise Filter did not help with filtering the noise from my Pentair Intelliflow pool pump. Also, all vendors selling this device think it will not work with Insteon networks.

Aeotec and GE both have a Z-wave switch that can handle 220V and 40 Amps. It is sort of deigned for outdoors.

I have an Intellaflo pump have not noticed any Insteon issues while it is running.

Do you have the recommended surge protector installed? I wonder if it has done bad and is eating your signals.

Re: Pool Pump Interference

thanks for your reply. In fact we have 3 Intelliflo pumps and they never interfered with the Insteon network for years. Only recently, one of the pumps (not the other ones) started to cause trouble. So, yes, something went bad with this pump. I don't think we have any surge protectors installed ... I did not see anything in the panel box.

And to clarify, the pumps are not controlled by Insteon. But whenever this particular pump is running, all my poolhouse lights, which are Insteon controlled by dual-band switches, have trouble responding to commands.
