Now that the pool is open and things are looking good at the new house, I need to get a timer for the pump (220v 1.5hp). It has been on 24/7 to clear the pool but very soon I will want to ramp things down.
On previous pools I just bought the basic Intermatic Electronic timer (in the metal box) and simply switched the pump on/off. Now there are soooo many more options, dual/triple timers, automation, fireman switches, etc, so I am looking for a little guidance.
I don't have a heater yet, but plan on getting a heat pump one day so I would want a dual circuit timer to allow for expansion. I am pretty anal about maintenence, so I don't really need the full blown automation systems with remotes controls, etc. I am a DIY'er and have no problem wiring things up.
