If you just bought this then there will be a diagram on the motor nameplate and/or under the terminal cover where you connect the wires. Generally speaking, there are two wires inside the motor that change positions depending on 115 or 230 v connection. If one of the wires is on a post common to one of the line leads, that usually means you have the motor set for 115V. Is that the voltage you are supplying to the motor? If there is no diagram you can make out on the motor, post what brand motor and the motor model number for a diagram.

My friend, my experience with the two speed pump in low speed is less than spectacular. There is so little filter action with the lower speed as to render the process useless. If you are trying to save $, better to run the pump a little longer then turn it off. My experience is in a commercial application. I run three such pumps in that system ... the additional expense of the two speed motors was a waste of capitol. In addition, as a commercial facility, we could not meet the required water turn over rate in our pools. Of course yours is a smaller body of water and you are probably not in a commercial facility. We get a LOT of cleaning (through filtration) at night, after the customers go home.
I suppose you could run your system with a intelematic switch ... I have not seen a 'three way' switch in this line ... having said that ... to my way of thinking ... you would wire directly through the selector switch on the back of the motor to each of two intelematic's; one on the high side and the other on the low side. I would allow at least 30 minutes between the two cycles to prevent impeller damage.
