I have a Hayward Voyager Cartridge filter with a 2 hp motor and integrated timer. The timer stopped working last season and I never knew how much I would miss it - kind of chuckled when I found out it had a timer built in, I had never seen one on a pool pump.
The replacement is about $60 shipped to my door, but is it just going to break again? Am I better off investing in a more robust timer?
With limited time, it is nice to know the the filter is running long enough to clean, but not long enough to waste valuable resources. When I purchased he pool, I was told I did not need a two speed pump - if I had one I would probably just let it run 24x7 and would not need a timer for such a small pool...which with any luck should show up in the sig.
