    The wiring details are easy, yet so different depending on your exact details. If you go to INTERMATIC web site and search for their pool timers, you will get many examples of exactly how to wire.

    My is electric vs. mechanical, so not sure I can help.

    Since you have a plug-in pump, just search for a plug-in pool pump timer. Intermatic makes a few models.

    You wire it into your gfic outlet. Where are you going to put the timer ? I have a 101 and put it in my basement out of the weather.

    Re: INTERMATIC TIMER HOOKUP?

    Is that pump 120 or 240 volts?

    You could wire a plug and receptacle into the T101 and then plug that into the gfci receptacle you have.

    pump is 120 , 20 amp . i see what u say about the plug and receptacle but would i not have to wire the timer to plug into the gfci receptacle i already have then rewire the pump into the timer would this not void the warranty on the pump.

    Re: INTERMATIC TIMER HOOKUP?

    What I was thinking was that you'd wire a plug into the power side of it to plug it into the gfci and then you'd wire a single receptacle into the relay side to plug the pump into. That way you really wouldn't change anything.
