    Pool Timers

    Any thoughts on the best/lowest cost option for a pool timer?

    I have been looking at the Intermec's, but it seems they are not all weather safe.

    Just curious what everyone else uses. My pump is 120V running on a 20 amp circuit.

    Thanks.

    Is your pump plugin or hardwired. I still like the intermatic's, but if it's plugged in you could use a timer from Lowes, etc.

    You can buy an Intermatic in a NEMA 3R enclosure.

    Sorry, it's hard wired.

    What model do you prefer and where did you but it?

    The T101 is a SPST timer with 120 volt clock and the T103 is a DPST with 120 volt clock. You can get either a plastic case (p) or a metal case (r) i.e. T101P or T101R. Amazon usually has good prices.
