    Timer Recommendation Needed

    Can anyone recommend a good quality digital timer that won't break the bank...

    Thanks!

    Re: Timer Recommendation Needed

    Is there a specific reason you want to go digital rather than a mechanical? I have an Intermatic mechanical timer and it's basically bulletproof. Intermatic also makes very good digital timers as well. My mechanical timer is a T104PCD82, plastic enclosure. The PE153 series would be a similar timer, but digital. I believe for these digital timers, some have the option of adding a remote control, which I admit sometimes would be nice! Your pump specs are not listed in your signature so just be sure that if you have a 2 speed or VS pump that your timer can handle it.

    The digital timer will be for a Stenner pump. I have a mechanical timer on my filter pump already.

    In that case, I would check out threads in the Chemical Automation and The Liquidator for folks documenting their builds. Lots of great ideas there!
