There are some examples in the official documentation.

The closest one is here:


The differences are:

1) the example assumes CentOS7, but should be applied to Red Hat 7 as well.

2) the example is for 1 read only node, while yours is 2. But it's
   should be easy to add one more read only node.

3) the example explains "watchdog", which is HA feature for Pgpool-II
   itself. i.e. assuming to use multiple Pgpool-II. If you do not need
   the feature, you could skip the "watchdog" section.
