    I need a multi timer

    I was looking at Home Depot but didnt find a timer Im looking for. I need a multi timer. Like being able to set the timer to come on and off every XX hours (ie 3 hrs), or being able to set time timer to go on and off at least 3 times a day. Anyone know of a timer to do this? Please link if you do.

    What voltage is your pump?

    Intermatic mechanical timers are very robust and well priced. You can buy extra on/off brackets to do mutiple on/off segments. After that you can step up to digital timers but they are more expensive and more prone to problems I have heard.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    I have the Intermatic Digital Timer. Had it for 3 years now. Gives you 8 segments that you can program from 1 minute and up. Mine has not give any issues at all other than a battery change that was very easy. Also has adjustable "Freeze Guard" that turn power on when air temp get to your pre-set temp. I've had zero issues with mine and easy to operate. Come in both 110v and 220v.
    Good Luck!!

    Just google intermatic for their website and then go to one of the preferred vendors here or amazon.
