I inherited a pool when I bought my house....got a quick rundown from the previous owner, but nothing in-depth.
My pump is plugged directly into an in-ground outlet with an on/off switch. It's been running 24/7 since I moved in and I'm pretty sure that's how it ran previous to me taking over. I'm considering putting it on a timer. Would any simple outlet timer (a la christmas lights) work? Or - do the fancy wired timers have some other requirements I'm overlooking? Thanks!
