    Intermatic is good. They have dozens of different models for every possible situation and are widely available. The T100 series is a good place to start for a basic inexpensive timer.

    Re: Timer?

    I have nothing but good things to say about my timer:

    Intermatic P1353 timer

    It is a little more money, but handle the pump/boost pump relationship nicely. I also have a two speed pump so this timer is nice for that.

    All of those places should have some Intermatic timers, though none of them will carry all them different models. For basic needs, I am sure they will have something you can use.
