Hi: I'm a newbie looking for help. I have a generator at my cottage that I startup (remotely) to pump up the water. The pump is wired for 240V. I'd like to have the power to the pump switched on after the generator has been running for ~15 seconds. Is there some circuit I could use to switch on the 240V after the 15 second delay? I need this circuit for two reasons: an attached ultraviolet purifier has a 5 second startup time (don't want water flowing until then), and I'm worried about damage to the pump motor when the generator isn't up to full power.
