    Timer for AGP

    I need a timer for my new pool. the pump is 1.5HP. I want one that can be plugged and unplugged easily rather than hardwired. I also need it to be inexpensive since the pool cost me more than I expected. Thanks.

    You can pick up an inexpensive outdoor timer that plugs in at just about any hardware store.

    Most that I find are 15amp. is that normal? That is the only reason why I haven't just picked one up.

    15 amps is fine if your pump is rated for 15 amps or lower. Go by the amp rating, not the listed HP.
