I currently have my pump and intex swg running via a intermatic timer. I love the timer and intend to keep it running my equipment. I am aware that the aquatrol has a built in timer, but you are able to set all the time switches to on, and run it via a external timer. However i am concerned about the cleaning cycle.
Does this unit reverse the polarity on a time basis, or number of runs? If its on time there is no problem, if its that it swaps every X number of cycles id have problems as the power would be cut after every cycle.
Id upgrade to the aquarite if needed, but the extra output and price is not really needed for my current, or upgrade plans - currently have apx 8K galons, will be upgrading to apx 15K gallons next year.
