    turning timer off to run pump 24/7

    New pool and my service set up intermatic timer. I'm about to add some stabilizer to increase my CYA and want to make sure the timer doesn't shut the pump down while it's dissolving. Is this as simple as removing the "Off" dog from the clock?

    thanks!

    Haven't used an Intermatic in years, but I am pretty confident removing just the "Off" tab will do the trick. But removing both definitely will.

    I can vouch that leaving the green "on" tab in mine will keep it running 27/7. I Just take the red one out.

    Omg. Lol. Hum. I guess so. Seems like they last that long.

    hehe, it's ok to leave the "On" tab on the dial. The little tabs that engage/disengage the on/off lever are at different spots on the arm, so the on tab won't interfere with the switch when it's already in the On position.
