Heat pump short cycling

I have an Aquacal heat pump wired into the gas heater connection on an Easy Touch 8.

Everything works fine, except the heat pump ends up short cycling as soon as the pool reaches the set temp. The temp will drop a degree and the heater fires. This cycle continues and it can't be good for the heater. See the screenshot:

I see that a temp differential can be set for a solar heater. Do I need to hook the heat pump up to the solar terminals instead?

Yes, the heat pump will need to be controlled through a relay plugged into the solar port and activated under solar as heat pump used, also a solar sensor will be needed on the easytouch in order to operate the heat pump in solar.
