    Timer

    My wife and I just closed on our new house yesterday and so I had some time to inspect the pool, pump, filter in more detail.

    The pump is plugged into an electrical box that basically has just an on/off switch on it. There is no timer.

    Can anyone recommend a quality timer or are they all pretty much the same? I don't need anything fancy or anything with different speeds on it. Just a basic above ground pump timer that will handle the pump load.

    This is an in ground pool (16 x 32) with a cartridge filter.

    Thanks!!

    Re: Timer

    After doing some research, I came across these:

    Would one of these be ok? And - What is the difference between the two:

    Intermatic T101R

    The T101P has a plastic housing, the T101R has a steel housing and they are used if you have 120V input. If you have a 220V system you need to get the T104R timer. I recommend to get the steel housing.

    I have the Intermatic Model ST01 series - love it. Its 6 yrs old, so I am sure this model has been replaced by another. Multiple programs, easy to use.

    Re: Timer

    I depends on where it will be located. Intermatic makes a good mechanical switch. If your needs are 120v then the 101 line would do. 220v is the 104 line. If it's located outdoors then it needs to be NEMA 3R. That will have the gasket around the door. I would get the metal one. I have seen the plastic doors fail over time. Another thing is the clock motor can be replaced in the future if it fails without getting a new unit.
