    There has been several other topics concerning relay’s, both in this topic area and in others. But, i am looking for a retail solution for a Pump Start Relay that can turn on and off a Pump using the Master option as one of the Zones. I ask this, because i purchased a Rain Bird Pump Start Relay, and it required 24VAC & 1.3Amps on the Coil to start the pump, and 24VAC & 0.3Amps to sustain the connection.

    And the Raspberry OSPi would not turn on my 110V/10A pump.

    Would like specifics besides the Omron G7L-2A-TUB-J-CB-AC24 Relay. Would like a Retail solution, like the http://www.amazon.com/Orbit-57009-Sprinkler-System-Horsepower/dp/B000I19I5E? solution.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    The Orbit 57009 is definitely a good retail solution. You can buy it on Amazon, or if you are close to a Home Depot or Lowes store, they are likely to have this in store as well.
