    Need recomendation for a Timer

    Newbe here and the pool should be installed next week
    Curious as to what type of timer I should purchase for the pump.
    I went to one of the Box stores today and there was nothing.
    any help would be appreciated.

    Intermatic timers suitable for pools are often sold in the box stores (HD and Lowes) as hot water heater timers. The only thing relevant is the voltage and amp ratings. If you have a 220V pump, your timer needs to be 220V and an Amp rating that matches or exceeds your pump. Many pool stores sell the same timers as well.
    Here is picture.
