    Egg-timer and Heater - Easytouch

    Hello Everyone - Can the easy touch run an egg timer on a heater? I would like to be able to start the pump and heater remotely at a setup of say 85 and for it to maintain 85 for an egg-timer of about 4 hours.

    Thank you,

    Anthony

    To heat the entire pool or just a spa?

    This may help then:

    Pentair ET 8 manual http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/EasyTouchICPUG.pdf see page 19 to set heat on "pool" and page 21 to set egg timer on "pool".

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Egg-timer and Heater - Easytouch

    Thank you for the information. I think I understand what I read. It seems there really is not independent control of a timed heat only sometimes. Either the pool / spa is running a pump with heat every time the pump starts or it is not running heat every time the pump starts. You cannot say setup two egg-timers. The first one to run 4 hours with the pump and the heat and the second one with only the pump. I think you can manually turn on the heat when an egg-timer is set and of course when the flow stops it will stop and I think next time the pump comes on it will also.

    Maybe i am wrong but my think head cant see it.
