    Need help today, which timer to buy?

    I have a 2 stage pump that I am moving and want to install a new timer. I have been advised to get a timer that I could set to run the pump on low speed for a few hours and on high speed for a few hours. Any suggestions on which timer system to get and why? Need to purchase today if possible. Thanks

    Hello GP. Many folks here have had good luck with the Intermatic products. Your power requirements will drive exactly which timer you need (i.e. 110v vs 220V). In addition, a combination of those timers can help folks set 2-speed motors if desired, although many people with 2-speeds leave them on low most of the time anyways except for cleaning or mixing chemicals in which case they just hit the toggle switch manually. Examples of such timers are:
    T101R/M (110) and T104M (220).

    Hope that helps.
