    Pentair Solartouch relay overriding SSP timer.

    Have a question for the equipment guru's on here.

    I recently installed solar panels on my intex 9x18 ultra pool, and have a Solartouch to control the solar 3way valve (yet to be installed) and also to control the single speed pump in my system as per below diagram. Since I also have a intex SWG I need to run the pump and SWG for about 2 hours daily to turn over the volume and keep FC in check.
    so I'm really not interested in running the pump all day if there are no solar gains to be had, I want the Solartouch to open the solar valve and the solar pump relay to start the pump when the sun hits the panels. now my problem is that i can't figure out what timers have the override function illustraded with the "LOAD 1" option to allow the Solartouch to take control and start the pump.

    Any pointers in the right direction on the right timer would much appreciated!

    thanks

    nevermind, figured it out, need a DSPT timer which is not that easy to find here in the UK for some reason..
