Hello-I am new to the forum and I have plans to install a new in ground pool this spring. I have struggled with the electrical part of the build and would really appreciate some help from someone who can lead me in the right direction. I need to purchase a timer for my new pump and gas heater. the pump is 240v. and the heater can be set up for either 240v or 120v. i would like to run both pieces of equipment on the same timer if possible. What timer could I use to accomplish this?
I have found a Intermatic T104P201 with a "fireman" switch. I'm not too sure how this works or if it would work for what I am looking for. How does the "fireman" switch turn the heater on and off? is the fireman wiring 120v or 240v or low volt? How would I hook the power for the heater using this timer? I am really confused as to which way to go.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
