    Timer that has a weekend/weekday schedule?

    Is anyone aware of any other electronic timers for two speed pumps out there other than the Intermatic P1352ME and the Tightwatt? I would really like a timer that has a weekend/weekday schedule. It does not look like the Intermatic understands days, but I may be wrong...

    None of the common pool timers know anything about the day of the week. Intermatic does make some times designed for other applications, like outdoor lighting, that do have day of the week programming, but I am less familiar with them.

    I had the Intermatic Model ST01 Series (Self-Adjusting Wall Switch Timer) added to my pool pump last year. Of course, I am not an electrician, so can't give you any "electrical type" answers, but the timer does allow settings for specific ON/OFF times, DAWN/DUSK, and All days M-F, WeekenD, or individual days. Best thing I ever did, was have it added.

    Wow. I just came across this post. Hopefully you'll get a ping.

    My Intermatic T101 just died and after a search for replacements I was bummed by how expensive the T101 is for what you get feature wise. I had installed a ST01 in our bathroom to run a floor heater I installed at our old house and this post just re calibrated my expectations. You say you don't know all the electrical gobbly goop, but what are you running off of this timer?

    I just went and read the manual for that timer and I have to say that I'm inpressed. It shows being capable of running a 1hp 120v motor. That's pretty inpressive for that small a package.

    Check for this recall on the Intermatic In-Wall timers - http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09259.html
    For direct replacement of the clock motor timers, I would recommend a P710xME, which fit right in the box and give you multiple 7 day timer control settings. Heres a link -http://www.poolandspacontrols.com/pr...echanisms.aspx
